Target Students: Electrical MSc and final year MEng students Available to JYA/Erasmus students.
|Spring||Assessed by end of Spring Semester|
Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic control design methods (such as that provided by H63CSD) and knowledge of drive systems (such as that provided by H63EDR).
Summary of Content:
This covers the control of AC drives. The first part of the module covers vector controlled induction motor drives and the second part covers permanent magnet motor drives. A review of induction machine operation and basic open-loop induction motor drives is given. Vector control is covered in depth covering the concept of space vectors, dq representation of 3-phase machines, dynamic equation structure and the concepts of direct and indirect flux orientation. Implementation of Indirect Vector Control, including current flux and speed control is covered in some detail and includes the effect of incorrect parameters.
The second part introduces both AC and Brushless DC permanent magnet motor drives. The vector control concepts learned in the first part of the module are applied to AC PM machines. The concept of salient and non-salient AC PM machines are covered leading to the vector control using maximum torque per amp control strategies. Finally the field weakening control of both non-salient and salient PM machines are considered.
