— For Electric Vehicles (EV), the charger is one of the main technical and economical weaknesses. This paper focuses on an original electric drive [1]-[3] dedicated to the vehicle traction and configurable as a battery charger without need of additional components. This cheap solution can outfit either electric or plug-in hybrid automotive vehicles, without(More)
This paper deals with the series connection of two 5-phase synchronous machines supplied by a single 5-leg voltage source inverter. Using a specific modelling tool, design constraints on both machines are defined in order to control them independently. The effects of harmonics of back-electromotive force are then examined and improved control is deduced
This paper deals with a vector control of n-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine. To use control algorithms already developed for sine-wave 3-phase machines, the spectrum of back electromotive force (EMF) must contain only odd 2k+1 harmonics which verify the following inequality, 1 /spl les/ 2k+1 < n. In an experimental vector control of a 5-phase(More)
A multi-machine multi-converter system formalism has been proposed to describe systems composed of several electrical machines and converters. This description points out coupling elements, which have to distribute energy. Control structures have already been proposed for systems with downstream coupling. This paper is focused on control structures for(More)
The traction system of the subway VAL 206 is ensured by DC machines connected in series. A common chopper supplies the armature windings and a double-chopper supplies the field windings. Another power structure is suggested in order to increase performances during losses of adhesion. A specific control strategy is defined in order to obtain different torque(More)
This paper deals with modeling and control of a three-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) with sinusoidal back electromotive forces (emf) under supply fault conditions. The overall system is modeled thanks to the energetic macroscopic representation (EMR) formalism considering that a fusible element opens the phase circuit. Using systematic(More)
This paper presents a specific control strategy of double-ended inverter system for wide-speed range of open-end winding five phase PM machines. Different virtual winding configurations (star, pentagon, pentacle and bipolar) can be obtained by choosing the appropriated switching sequences of two inverters. The motor's speed range is thus increased.
A multi-machine multi-converter system formalism has been proposed in order to describe systems composed of several electrical machines and converters. The keys of such systems are coupling devices, which have to distribute energy. Control structures have also been suggested according to an inversion principle. The inversions of coupling devices have been(More)
This paper aims to evaluate experimentally the capability of variable speed wind turbine to contribute to primary frequency control. Emphasis on isolated power system is performed by considering the French Guadeloupe island as a technical case study. The experimental work is based on the Power Hardware In the Loop (PHIL) method. A wind farm is emulated by(More)
