A new Brushless Real Time Control (RTC) method for electric motors or generators is an evolution in Sensor-less control. Very different from any derivative of Field Oriented Control (FOC), RTC uniquely eliminates all control uncertainty, including the extraneous shaft connected resolver for the specific purpose of measuring speed-position (i.e., Sensor-less). Although modified versions of RTC can be used for control of any type of electric machine, the variable speed Brushless Wound-rotor…

A novel control technique for sensorless vector control operation of double inverter fed wound rotor induction motor and allows the drive to start on-the-fly without any rotor transducer, and a complete inverter power flow analysis is presented.
A simple position-sensorless algorithm for rotor-side field-oriented control of wound-rotor induction machine
A simple position-sensorless method for the rotor-side field-oriented control of a wound-rotor induction machine is described, which is more direct and the dependence on machine parameters is also largely reduced.
Analysis and Test Results of a Brushless Doubly Fed Induction Machine With Rotary Transformer
This paper analyzes a 90-kW brushless doubly fed three-phase induction machine in which a wound rotor circuit is connected to a rotary transformer. It presents the advantages of substituting brushes
Parametic Pump-Down of Synchronous Machine Oscillations
A new stabilizing technique for synchronous electric machines is presented. The method uses an external series controller (utilizing silicon-controlled rectifiers) which affects the synchronizing
Analysis of doubly fed slip-ring machines
It is shown that a broad class of machines exists whose members may be regarded as doubly fed slip-ring machines. The paper presents a simple approach to the analysis of the steady-state performance
Stabilizing controls for a doubly fed synchronous-induction machine
The stability of a doubly-fed synchronous-induction machine is investigated through small as well as large perturbation models. Two stabilizing control strategies have been proposed for the small
Direct torque and frequency control of double-inverter-fed slip-ring induction motor drive
Simulation and experimental results are presented from a 50-hp drive, demonstrating that the drive can deliver full torque from 0 to 2-p.u. speed in either direction, and double the rated power can be extracted from the motor without overloading it.
The Cycloconverter Driven Doubly-Fed Induction Motor
A variable speed electric drive system has been developed in which the speed-torque characteristics of a dc series motor have been attained without the need for a commutator. Improved utilization of
Variable-Speed Wind Power Generation Using a Doubly Fed Wound Rotor Induction Machine: A Comparison with Alternative Schemes
In this paper, a wind energy conversion system (WECS) using a grid-connected wound rotor induction machine controlled from the rotor side is compared with both fixed-speed and variable-speed systems
