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: This paper describes a robust control scheme for high-speed and long stroke scanning motion of high precision linear motor system consisting of linear motor, air bearing guide and position measurement system using heterodyne interferometer. Nowadays, semiconductor process and inspection of wafer or LCD need high speed and long travel length for their high throughput and extremely small velocity fluctuations or tracking errors. In order to satisfy these conditions, linear motor system are widely used because they have large thrust force and do not need motion conversion mechanisms such as ball screw, rack & pinion or capstan with which the system are burdened. However linear motors have a problem called force ripple. Force ripple deteriorates the tracking performances and makes periodic position errors. So, force ripple must be compensated. To maximize the tracking performance of linear motor system, we propose the control scheme which is composed of a robust control method, Time Delay Controller (TDC) and a feedforward control method, Zero Phase Error Tracking Control (ZPETC) for accurate tracking a given trajectory and an adaptive force ripple compensation (AFC) algorithm fur estimating and compensating force ripple. The adaptive ripple compensation is continuously refined on the basis of tracking error. Computer simulation results based on modeled parameters verify the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme for high-speed, long stroke and high precision scanning motion and show that the proposed control scheme can achieve a sup error tracking performance in comparison to conventional TDC control.

    ABSTRACT: Permanent magnet motors are largely employed due to their high performances in terms of efficiency, power factor and power density. However, non-uniformity into the generated torque may heavily limit their use. In this paper a novel approach is proposed to cancel torque ripple when motor parameters are unknown. The cancellation scheme is based on the frequencies estimation of periodic disturbances acting on the generated motor torque. The estimation process makes use of an adaptive frequency-locked loop system driven by speed measurements. A fractional-order controller is designed to guarantee the stability of the closed-loop system.

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates the influence of skewing on torque ripples, including the electromagnetic (EM) torque ripple, and the cogging torque, in permanent magnet (PM) machines. It is found that the effectiveness of skewing largely depends on the axial variation of a torque ripple phase but less on its magnitude under skewing. It is further found that, in both linear and nonlinear cases, the EM and the on-load torque ripple cannot be fully eliminated by skewing one on-load torque ripple period or any other angles, except 360° electrical, which is impractical. This is due to the fact that the EM torque ripple, especially its phase, of each slice is different due to the axial variation of the equivalent current phase advance angle introduced by skewing. In nonlinear cases, the EM torque ripple variation is further aggravated by the axial variation of magnetic saturation. The EM torque ripple as well as the on-load torque ripple may be even increased by skewing, especially when the cogging torque is low and electric loading is high.
