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)
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)
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)
This paper deals with control in fault operation of a seven-phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine supplied by a seven-leg Voltage Source Inverter (VSI). Using a MultiMachine description, a seven-phase machine which presents a special ability to be controlled with only five phases supplied has been designed. The machine is presented and experimental(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 multiphase permanent magnet machines with concentrated non-overlapped winding as a good candidate for automotive low voltage mild-hybrid applications. These machines often require a trade-off between low speed performances such as high torque density and high speed performances like flux weakening capabilities. This paper describes how(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.
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 fault tolerant multiphase electrical drives. The quality of the torque of vector-controlled Permanent Magnet (PM) Synchronous Machine supplied by a multi-leg Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) is examined in normal operation and when one or two phases are open-circuited. It is then deduced that a seven-phase machine is a good compromise(More)
