Sensorless Control of Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor Drives

  title={Sensorless Control of Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor Drives},
  author={P. D. Chandana Perera},
The reduced energy consumption is highly demand in motor drives for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) applications. [...] Key Method A shaft-mounted position sensor is required for achieving this. This shaft-mounted position sensor increases the cost and reduces the reliability in the drive system. This makes it undesirable for HVAC applications. The objective of this research project is to investigate sensorless control methods for PM synchronous machines with particular attention to HVAC…Expand
