In this paper, a new configuration called the auto disturbance rejection controller (ADRC) is used in induction motor speed control. The key part of the ADRC is the extended state observer (ESO). By using ESO, the ADRC can estimate accurately the derivative signals and accurate decoupling of the induction motor is also achieved. In addition, the external disturbances and parameter variations could also be estimated and compensated by ADRC, so that the closed loop motor drive system under ADRC control does not depend on the accurate mathematical model of induction motors. Therefore, the robustness and adaptability of the control system is improved too. The simulation and experiment results show that the controller operates quite robustly under modeling uncertainty and external disturbance, and it can provide good dynamic performance such as small overshoot and fast transient time in the speed control

    ABSTRACT: This paper deals with the observation and control of an induction motor. An observer in cascade for a class of nonlinear systems is used to estimate the state, and identify a component of the load torque which is a function of the rotor speed. A control law with two goals of regulating rotor speed and rotor flux amplitude is applied; and we show that the resulting closed loop system, which depends on the estimates, is asymptotically stable

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a simple scheme of predictive control of torque and flux is proposed to decrease the torque ripple and improve the flux locus distortion at low speed range in the direct torque control (DTC) of an induction motor. The concept of virtual vectors is also introduced to generate a fixed and higher switching frequency for the PWM invertor. Also, a MRAS (model reference adaptive control system) method using the modified rotor flux model is implemented to identify the rotor speed of induction motor, which can achieve wider bandwidth speed control. The simulation results show that very good dynamic response and steady state precision can be obtained with the proposed schemes, and this is confirmed by the experiments realized with a digital control structure using signal processor TMS320C32

    ABSTRACT: Gives a simple and comprehensive review of anti-windup, bumpless and conditioned transfer techniques in the framework of the PID controller. We show that the most suitable anti-windup strategy for usual applications is the conditioning technique, using the notion of the realizable reference. The exception is the case in which the input limitations are too restrictive. In this case, we propose the anti-windup method with a free parameter tuned to obtain a compromise between the incremental algorithm and the conditioning technique. We also introduce the new notion of conditioned transfer, and we it to be a more suitable solution than bumpless transfer. All the discussions are supported by simulations
