In this paper, two different Kalman Filtering techniques, Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) and Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) are investigated and compared both experimentally and theoretically. These non-linear, stochastic observers are employed as a state estimation tool in field-oriented control (FOC) of sensorless AC drives in this work. Using the superiorities of Kalman filtering, rotor speed and dq-axis fluxes of an induction motor are estimated only with the sensed stator currents and voltages information. In order to compare the estimation performances of the observers explicitly, both of the observers are designed for the same motor model and run with the same covariance matrices under the same conditions. In the simulation results it is shown that, UKF, whose several intrinsic properties suggest its use over EKF in highly nonlinear systems, has more satisfactory rotor speed and flux estimates, which are the most critical states for FOC. These simulation results are supported with experimental results.

A Comparative Study on Non-Linear State Estimators Applied to Sensorless AC Drives: MRAS and Kalman Filter
Akin, Bilal; Orguner, Umut; Ersak, Aydin; Ehsani, Mehrdad (2004-11-06)
In this paper, two different nonlinear estimators applied to sensorless AC drives, Kalman Filtering techniques (EKF and UKF) and Model Reference Adaptive System (back emf ans reactive power models), are discussed and compared to each other. Both of the observer types are studied and analyzed both experimentally and theoretically. In order to compare the observers precisely, the observers are tested under the identical conditions.
State estimation of induction motor using unscented Kalman filter
Akin, B; Orguner, Umut; Ersak, A (2003-06-25)
In this paper, a new estimation technique, unscented Kalman filter (UKF) is applied to state observation in field oriented control (FOC) of induction motor. UKF, a recent derivative-free nonlinear estimation tool, is used for estimating rotor speed and fluxes using sensed stator current and voltages. In the simulations, UKF, whose several intrinsic properties suggest its use over EKF in highly nonlinear systems, turned out to be very similar to EKF in flux estimates. The simulation results also show that UK...
A novel adaptive unscented Kalman filter for pico satellite attitude estimation
Söken, Halil Ersin (2011-09-08)
Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) is a filtering algorithm which gives sufficiently good estimation results for estimation problems of nonlinear systems even in case of high nonlinearity. However, in case of system uncertainty UKF becomes to be inaccurate and diverges by time. In other words, if any change occurs in the process noise covariance, which is known as a priori, filter fails. This study, introduces a novel Adaptive Unscented Kalman Filter (AUKF) algorithm based on the correction of process noise cova...
Comparison of Bayesian MAP Estimation and Kalman Filter Methods in the Solution of Spatio-Temporal Inverse ECG Problem
Aydin, Umit; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim (2009-09-12)
In this study, spatial only, and spatio-temporal Bayesian Maximum a Posteriori (MAP) methods and an another spatio-temporal method, the Kalman filter approach, are used to solve the inverse electrocardiography (ECG) problem. Training sets are used to obtain the required a priori information for all methods. Two different approaches are employed to calculate the state transition matrix (STM), which maps the epicardial potentials in two consecutive time instants in the Kalman filter method. The first one uses...
