This paper proposes a practical digital-signal-processor (DSP)-based algorithm for the online efficiency optimization of induction motor drives. The algorithm combines good features of the search control and loss-model-based control, while simultaneously eliminating their major drawbacks. It ensures very fast convergence without the need for any a priori(More)
This paper deals with the problem of mechanical resonance in modern servo drive systems having the speed control loop bandwidth and resonance frequency above 100 Hz. To enable the extension of the range of stable gains in the presence of flexible coupling, a simple and straightforward modification of the speed loop controller is proposed in order to augment(More)
A novel concept for multi-drive systems, based on utilisation of multi-phase machines, has been introduced recently. It has been shown that, by connecting in series stator windings of the multi-phase machines in an appropriate manner, it becomes possible to control all the machines in the group independently using vector control principles, although the(More)
Since variable speed electric drive systems are supplied from power electronic converters, it is possible to utilise AC machines with a phase number higher than three. It is shown in the paper, using general theory of electrical machines, that an increase of the stator phase number to at least five (or more) enables completely independent vector control of(More)
Abstract—The paper analyses a recently introduced two-motor five-phase drive system with series connection of stator windings. It has been shown, using physical reasoning, that introduction of an appropriate phase transposition in the series connection of two machines leads to a complete decoupling of the flux/torque producing currents of one machine from(More)
Five inverter power circuits suitable for switched reluctance motor (SRM) drives are analyzed. The peak voltage and current ratings of the power switches and the size and peak ratings of the DC link components of each circuit are compared. As an example, a converter analysis and selection are performed for a high-speed, 6/2 SRM, suitable for a spindle(More)
Financial transmission rights (FTR) auction is an important method for allocating the network transmission capabilities to the market participants who value them most. In this letter, series flexible ac transmission systems (FACTS) devices are modeled as additional power injection at buses in the presented linear optimization problem of FTR auction, which(More)
Since independent control of an AC machine requires only two currents, additional degrees of freedom that exist in multiphase (n>3) machines can be used for other purposes. One possibility is the series connection of the stator windings, in an appropriate manner, which enables independent control of a set of machines although a single multiphase(More)
