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)
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 high performance servomotor drive system is described for a salient pole PM motor in which an armature current vector is actively controlled according to load conditions in order to use a reluctance torque effectively, and as a result a large torque can be produced. The control algorithm of the armature current vector is described taking 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)
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)
In the past few years, worldwide awareness of environmental problems has grown dramatically. The idling stop and 42 V battery system has attracted large attention for next generation vehicle. In order to adapt to idling stop, air-conditioning compressors are required to be changed to electric-motor driven from gasoline engine driven. This paper discusses(More)
The influence of rotor configuration on sensorless control for interior permanent-magnet synchronous motors (IPMSM) with concentrated windings is evaluated. Sensorless control that gives estimated angle with simple integration procedure and the biased convergent point observer is applied. Two types of rotors are analyzed and their robustness for an offset(More)
The optimum flux-weakening control method of the permanent magnet (PM) motor is examined in order to expand the operating limits. The effects of motor parameters, such as d- and q-axis inductances, PM flux-linkage, and so on, are examined by computer simulation. Furthermore, the control method and the output characteristics are examined considering the PM(More)
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)
