This paper presents a novel sensorless control strategy for a salient-pole permanent magnet synchronous motor. A new model of salient-pole PMSM using an extended electromotive force (EMF) in the rotating reference frame is utilized to estimate both position and speed. The extended EMF is estimated by a least-order observer, and the estimation position error(More)
This paper proposes a variable-speed wind generation system using an interior permanent-magnet synchronous generator (IPMSG). The armature current vector of the IPMSG is optimally controlled according to the generator speed in order to maximize the generated power from the wind turbine. The IPMSG is controlled by the loss-minimization control with maximum(More)
Although motors that use rare-earth permanent magnets (PMs) typically exhibit high performance, high costs and concerns about the stability of raw material supplies are leading to their decreased production. However, the performance of such motors is not easily matched without the use of rare-earth PMs. This paper proposes and examines a PM-assisted(More)
A sensorless-control technique for improving the performance of interior permanent-magnet synchronous-motor control such as the operating speed range and position estimation accuracy is proposed herein.

An interior permanent-magnet synchronous motor (IPMSM) is a highly efficient motor and operates in a wide speed range; therefore, it is used in many industrial and home appliance applications. However, the torque ripple of synchronous motors such as the IPMSM and synchronous reluctance motor is very large. The variation of magnetic resistance between the(More)
A mechanical sensorless drive system for an interior permanent-magnet synchronous motor, for which parameters including the inverter are identified, is proposed in this paper. The rotor position is estimated by a signal-injection sensorless scheme at standstill. The resistance, including the on-resistance of the insulated-gate bipolar transistor, the(More)
This paper proposes a control method suitable for limited armature voltage and current in a permanent-magnet synchronous motor drive system based on direct torque control (DTC).

This paper proposes an output maximization control for a wind generation system with a variable speed interior permanent magnet synchronous generator (IPMSG). The generator torque is suitably controlled according to the generator speed by employing maximum power point tracking control. The IMPSG current vector is controlled so as to minimize generator(More)
The influence of permanent-magnetic flux variation and magnetic saturation on sensorless control for interior permanent-magnet synchronous motors with concentrated windings is evaluated. By using finite-element method analysis, partial differential values of flux linkage are calculated directly and precisely in a short time. High-speed analysis of a motor(More)
