The paper describes the comparison between two different high-performance techniques used for the sensorless estimation of the motor shaft position in Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Sensorless Drives. Rotor position and speed are estimated from measured terminal voltages and currents, and are used as feedback in a sensorless vector control scheme, achieving almost the same high-performance of a sensored drive. The paper point out the differences, by using experimental implementation, between an open-loop flux estimator based on the electrical model of the machine, and a reduced flux observer.

    ABSTRACT: Vector control of permanent magnet synchronous machine PMSM is one of the new techniques have been developed in recent years. It's based on the use of measures from the mechanical sensor. In order to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of this variable speed drive, the paper presents a control method without sensor using the estimation of the electromotive force EMF to determine the speed and the position. The resulting algorithm is implemented in embedded dasiaCpsila language on DSP board and tested on 500 W PMSM.

    ABSTRACT: The sensorless control method for the high speed permanent magnet synchronous machine without position and speed sensor in the start process of a 30 kW microturbine generation system is investigated in this paper. The open-loop speed control mode based on current control is applied at low speed, and the closed-loop sensorless vector control mode is used at medium and high speed. The rotor position and speed estimation algorithm is implemented using an open-loop observer based on back-EMF in the vector control. On the basis of detailed description of the proposed start-up strategy, the simulation and experimental system has been built. Several critical issues were analyzed, including the setting method of the reference speed profile in open-loop mode and the transition time selection from open-loop mode to closed vector control. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate the proposed sensorless control method can meet the requirements of the start process for microtubine generation system, and possesses high static and dynamic performance at large-scale speed.

    ABSTRACT: The sensorless vector control method for the high speed Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM) used as integrated starter-generator (ISG) applied in the microturbine generation system (MTG) is investigated in depth in this paper. For its characteristic of high rotating speed and low inductance, an improved open-loop back-EMF estimation method is proposed to estimate the position and velocity of the high speed PMSM. The tracking differentiator is used instead of the classic differentiator to overcome the problem of noise amplification. The variable parameter low-pass filter optimized based on the velocity is adopted to filter the estimated back-EMF. Moreover, the estimation errors caused by the low-pass filter and sampling delay are also compensated. The effects of voltage distortion caused by dead time on the estimation accuracy are weakened by dead-time compensation. Based on the proceeding estimation, the sensorless vector control system for the high speed PMSM used in a 30 kW MTG is designed and implemented. The simulation and experimental results show the proposed sensorless vector control method is simple, practical and possessing good estimation accuracy at large-scale speeds. It can satisfy the requirements in terms of fast and stability during the operation of microtubine generation system, and ensure that the system has good static and dynamic performance.
