Single-phase induction motors are widely used in home appliances and industrial control. The multispeed operation and multipurpose operation are provided by controlling the speed of these motors. This paper presents variable-frequency motor drive system implemented by PWAI voltage source inverter, to improve a single-phase induction machine (SIM) efficiency.


Efficiency Optimization of a Direct Torque Controlled Induction Motor used in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
Sergaki, Eleftheria S.; Moustaizis, Stavros D. (2011-09-10)
The main contribution of this paper is the application of Loss Minimization control algorithm of a three-phase squirrel-cage induction motor which is used in parallel with an internal combustion engine (ICE), in hybrid electric vehicles (HEY). During steady state operation of the electric motor, the electric motor's optimal motor flux profile minimizes the electric motor losses and maximizes the overall HEN efficiency, hybridization factor (HF). During steady state operation of the direct torque controlled ...
Design, control and optimization of vehicle suspensions with inerters
Gerger, Orhan; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Başlamışlı, Çağlar; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
Inerter is proposed as a mechanical equivalent of the capacitors available in electric circuits. The main advantage of the inerter is to provide a wider design space for a vehicle suspension by adding another suspension element next to spring and damper. Therefore, fine tuning of a suspension performance can be made without subjected to heavy trade-offs. The effect of the addition of inerter to a vehicle suspension and performance of the selected suspension arrangements with passive and semi-active inerters...
Design and Performance Analysis of a Grid Connected PWM-VSI System
Kantar, Emre; Usluer, S. Nadir; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2013-11-30)
Pulse-width modulation (PWM) voltage source inverters (VSIs) are favorable interface devices to the power grid for renewable energy systems. This paper deals with the design of the LCL-filter and inverter for the grid-connected VSI. A complete design procedure for both reactive and passive components of LCL-filter is demonstrated with a new iterative approach in selection of the filter inductors. The design process for a two-level VSI is clearly illustrated through an example and the dynamic response is inv...
Implementation of a vector controlled induction motor drive
Acar, Akın; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
High dynamic performance, which is obtained from dc motors, became achievable from induction motors with the recent advances in power semiconductors, digital signal processors and development in control techniques. By using field oriented control, torque and flux of the induction motors can be controlled independently as in dc motors. The control performance of field oriented induction motor drive greatly depends on the correct stator flux estimation. In this thesis voltage model is used for the flux estima...
Performance and thermal reliability comparisons of 2-level and 3-level NPC voltage source inverters for electric vehicle drive applications
Madan, Alican; Bostancı, Emine; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Two-level and multilevel inverters are widely used in electric vehicle drive applications with different switching techniques. Selection of the topology and the switching technique for electric vehicle drives are getting more important with the trend of designing more compact and more efficient drive circuitry. Reliability of semiconductors in power electronics are under investigation in recent years as well. In this thesis, a multidimensional comparison of two common topologies for a 120 kW electric vehicle...
