Field orientation has emerged as a powerful tool for controlling ac machines such as inverter-supplied induction motors. The dynamic performance of such a drive is comparable to that of a converterfed four quadrant dc drive. The complex functions required by filed-oriented control may be executed by microprocessors on line, thus greatly reducing the(More)
With the recent advances of power transistors and microprocessors it has become possible to design high-dynamic-performance ac-servo drives free of moving contacts using synchronous or asynchronous motors. Both schemes have their particular strengths. A general control principle, based on field or rotor orientation, is described which has been realized with(More)
