FPGA implementation of field oriented control forpermanent magnet synchronous motor

Irmak, Gizem
The thesis study focuses on the fully operational FPGA implementation for the current/torque control of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor. 3-phase synchronous motors with permanent magnets can be categorized into two categories as Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) and Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motor. The main difference between PMSM and BLDC is the shape of the induced back-EMF voltage. While BLDC motors have trapezoidal shaped back-EMF, PMSMs have a sinusoidal back-EMF. In order to take advantage of PMSM, the waveform of motor phase currents should also be created as sinusoidal waveform. For this purpose, Sinusoidal Commutation (SC) and Field Oriented Control (FOC) are the most common strategies in the literature. FOC with Space Vector PWM (SVPWM) is superior to SC in terms of wider speed operation range and higher torque efficiency and hence is the focus of this thesis. Within the scope of our study, Proportional Integral (PI) and Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) current and speed controller alternatives are designed. These alternatives are compared in a simulation environment for the considered PMSM. In order to analyze the performance, a detailed system model of the considered PMSM is also created. Matlab/Simulink is used for the construction and test of the simulation models. For the hardware validation and performance evaluation of the design, the PI current/torque controller is implemented in FPGA using VHDL language. Hardware experimental work is conducted on a custom design electronic board. Torque tracking ability of the current controller is analysed by using a number of test setups. Additionally, comparative performance analysis of the two competing commutation methods, namely the FOC and trapezoidal implementations, has been done. Apart from a fully functional FPGA realization, our study demonstrates the superiority of FOC over trapezoidal commutation in terms of reduction in both torque ripple and required sampling rate.


Robustness Adaptive Control For a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor
Rebouh, S.; Kaddouri, A.; Abdessemed, R.; Haddoun, A. (2011-09-10)
This paper presents a vector control permanent magnet synchronous motor drive using backstepping control design. Backstopping control is proposed for replacing the existing PI controller to obtain high performance motion control systems for the speed control loop. Stability analysis based on Lyapunov theory is also performed to guarantee the convergence of the speed tracking error from all possible initials conditions. Computer simulations have been carried out in order to validate the effectiveness of the ...
Improved torque and speed control performance in a vector-controlled PWM-VSI fed surface-mounted pmsm drive with conventional P-I controllers
Büyükkeleş, Ümit; Ersak, Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, high performance torque and speed control for a surface-mounted permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) is designed, simulated and implemented. A three-phase two-level pulse width modulation voltage-source inverter (PWM-VSI) with power MOSFETs is used to feed the PMSM. The study has three objectives. The first is to compensate the voltage disturbance caused by nonideal characteristics of the voltage-source inverter (VSI). The second is to decouple the coupled variables in the synchronous...

Lettl, Jiri; Kuzmanovic, Dragan; Fligl, Stanislav (2011-09-10)
In this paper, the implementation of the Field Oriented Control and the Direct Torque Control in matrix converter supplied induction motor drives is analysed, and compared with the implementation in drives supplied by the Voltage Source Inverter. The analysis is accompanied by the results of numerical simulations and experimental implementations of these two control methods.
Adaptive Nonlinear Control Combined With Unscented Kalman Filter for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Fed by AC/DC/AC Converter
Titaouine, A.; Taibi, D.; Bennis, O.; Benchabane, F.; Boumaraf, R.; Yahia, K. (2011-09-10)
In this paper, a adaptive non-linear controller is presented for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) sensorless drives. The adaptive non-linear controller is designed based on an input-output feedback linearization control technique. The unscented Kalman filter is used to estimate the speed, position and load torque. The PMSM is fed by an indirect power electronics converter. This indirect converter is controlled by a sliding mode technique that enables minimization of harmonics introduced by the line...

Uğur, Mesut; Keysan, Ozan (2018-10-25)
In this study, design procedure of an Integrated Modular Motor Drive (IMMD) is presented focusing on high power density. The design is based on a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and GaN FETs. Fractional slot concentrated windings are used on the stator. Slot/pole combination and winding configuration is selected based on having low cogging torque and high winding factor. An extended motor drive inverter topology is proposed where 2-level voltage source inverters are connected both in series and pa...
