This paper presents a nine-phase permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive system based on multiple three-phase voltage source inverters. The nine-phase PMSM was developed as a traction motor for an ultrahigh-speed elevator. The mathematical model of the motor was simplified through symmetry of the system. Using the simplified model, the drive system(More)
This paper presents an application of a disturbance observer for a relative position control system. In this system, since the prefixed motion profile is not defined <i>ex ante</i>, the acceleration state which is generated based on the profile is also not available. Therefore, feedforward acceleration controls cannot be used, and the position control(More)
The conventional motion control system simply consists of a PID position controller and a disturbance observer. The estimated speed from the observer has been used to control the speed as a feedback and the estimated disturbance force, which is a byproduct of the observer, has been used to reject the disturbance. However, in this case the disturbance(More)
In this paper, a synchronous motor with an inverter integrated rotor (SMIIR) is introduced, and its control scheme is proposed. This presents a new breed of synchronous motor in that it integrates an inverter inside the rotor. The basic operational principle and control strategies are discussed. Given these new strategies, the SMIIR can be considered as a(More)
This paper presents a control scheme for three-phase PWM converters which have no ac-side voltage sensors. In spite of no source voltage sensors, the proposed method estimates exact grid angle and voltages, which are the essential parts for the power transfer between DC link of PWM converter and AC source. The method works not only in normal balanced AC(More)
This paper proposes a new sensorless method for a synchronous machine with an inverter integrated rotor (SMIIR). The SMIIR is a newly developed machine based on the wound rotor synchronous machine (WRSM) but has no brushes and slip-rings. The conventional high-frequency signal injection sensorless methods are based on a physical magnetic saliency.(More)
