ABSTRACT Since a direct drive motor (DDM) does not require a reduction
gear, the drive system can be made simple, and therefore it is used in
high-precision robot and machine tool applications. However, without
reduction gear, a disturbance torque is directly reflected to the motor
shaft, and a torque ripple generated by the motor is directly
transmitted to the load, causing poor speed control characteristics. An
improved torque control system for DDM with a permanent magnet rotor,
equipped with a torque observer implemented by digital signal software,
is proposed. The speed fluctuation can be fully removed with a torque
feedforward loop

    ABSTRACT: A new method based on a frequency approach is used to model a DC permanent magnet actuator driven by a pulsewidth modulated amplifier as a transfer function. This paper investigates two carriers used in industrial applications with analog or digital control. The accurate model presented takes into account the supply amplifier with the motor dynamics and includes the input control voltage sampling effect. Advantages and limitations of both carriers and control signals are discussed, and information about harmonic angles, magnitudes, and distortion are provided. The validation of the pulsewidth modulated model is carried out through simulations and experiments of both open and closed current loop systems with the effect of current ripple

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a solution for observer based diagnostic system in high speed train with induction motor. The concept of the diagnostic system is dedicated to the mechanical part of the drive. The system is monitoring both motor speed sensor and torque transmission system. In case of speed sensor fault the control system could be switched into sensorless mode. Monitoring of torque transmission system allows to limit the motor torque in case of serious problem and gives an information to maintenance center for testing the suspected gear. The proposed system was verified by simulation and in test bench for 1.2 MW rail induction motor.

    ABSTRACT: Torque ripple minimisation is achieved by an adaptive feedforward control for mass produced permanent magnet synchronous motors. Torque ripple, a major problem for such motors can be reduced using appropriate estimation scheme from speed information. The proposed method employs online zero phase filtering which can effectively minimise all torque harmonics at low speed operation. Experimental results validate the proposed scheme reducing the torque ripple factor from 6.87% to 1.28% using the proposed method. The adaptation scheme make use of PD type iterative learning control scheme which has the advantage of fast convergence compared to the more commonly used P type iterative learning control. The PD-ILC scheme is also quite robust to an initial error in the estimation of the parameter J.
