—This paper proposes a novel control scheme of single-phase-to-three-phase pulsewidth-modulation (PWM) converters for low-power three-phase induction motor drives, where a single phase half-bridge PWM rectifier and a two-leg inverter are used. With this converter topology, the number of switching devices is reduced to six from ten in the case of full-bridge(More)
—Conventional proportional/proportional–integral (P/PI) speed controller for today's servo drives has to be manually tuned at the controller switching set point by trial and error, which may translate into drive system downtime and a subsequent loss of productivity. The adjustable drive performance is heavily dependent on the quality of expert knowledge.(More)
—This paper presents a new velocity estimation strategy of a nonsalient permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive without a high-frequency signal injection or special pulsewidth-modulation (PWM) pattern. This approach is based on the d-axis current regulator output voltage of the drive system that has the information of rotor position error. Rotor(More)
Fig. 3. Start-up performance of the system directly from DVC mode. TMS30C30-type DSP, and the experimental results of the total drive system will be reported in the future. V. CONCLUSION A zero-speed start-up method has been developed and investigated for a speed sensorless induction motor drive that uses stator-flux-oriented direct vector control. The(More)
—In this paper, a novel control scheme compensating for source voltage unbalance and current harmonics in series-type active power filter systems combined with shunt passive filters is proposed, which focuses on reducing the delay time effect required to generate the reference voltage. Using digital all-pass filters, the positive voltage sequence component(More)
—This paper proposes a new maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm for variable-speed wind turbine systems , which takes advantage of the rotor inertia power. In this method, a proportional controller is added to the power control to effectively reduce the moment of inertia of the wind turbines, which can improve the fast performance of the MPPT(More)
