ABSTRACT A novel strategy of current regulation of a field-oriented
controlled induction motor using a gate turn-off thyristor (GTO)
inverter is proposed which is based on multivariable state feedback
control with an integrator. The controller is designed by the pole
placement technique of multivariable system regulation theory.
Feedforward control is included in the control laws to improve transient
responses. For the full state feedback control, the rotor flux is
estimated with a reduced-order state observer. A good steady-state
performance is obtained by means of an integral compensation, and fast
transient response is also feasible since the required voltage is
directly calculated from the feedforward control. Space voltage vector
pulse width modulation is adopted as a switching strategy. A variable
modulation scheme is presented which is changed from three-phase to
two-phase modulation in the high modulation range, which gives lower
current ripple over the whole operating range

    ABSTRACT: The paper presents a control strategy employed to control an induction motor (IM) used in vehicular traction applications with variable speed. This strategy is based on the Direct-Flux Vector Control (DFVC) method. In such applications, deep flux weakening is required, and the maximum torque production must be obtained under current and voltage constraints. Information on the mathematical model and control scheme for DFVC is provided. The reference frame is given by the stator flux, all the calculations being made with respect to this frame. The proposed control scheme is also implementing a limitation of the maximum values of current and voltage, according to specific control laws - MTPV (Maximum Torque per Volt) and MTPA (Maximum Torque per Ampere). Experimental results are presented for a small power IM, accelerating in idle running, with an inertial load and for the steady state respectively. They are showing the efficiency of the proposed solution and a robust operation in flux-weakening conditions. The controller is belonging to the dSPACE family, being able to provide very fast floating point results. The proposed strategy can be used for controlling other types of motors, as the Interior Permanent-Magnet (IPM), Synchronous Reluctance (SyR) and wound rotor synchronous motors, considering the modifications imposed by the magnetic model (load angle, flux orientation a.s.o.).

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a new technique for directly designing a linear digital controller for a single-phase pulse width modulation (PWM) converter systems, based on closed-loop identification. The design procedure consists of three steps. First, obtain a digital current controller for the inner loop system by using the error space approach, so that the power factor of the supply is close to one. The outer loop is composed of a voltage controller, a current control loop including a current controller, a PWM converter, and a capacitor. Then, all the components, except the voltage controller, are identified by a discrete-time equivalent linear model, using the closed-loop output error (CLOE) method. Based on this equivalent model, a proper digital voltage controller is then directly designed. It is shown through PSim simulations and experimental results that the proposed method is useful for the practical design of PWM converter controllers.
