A Measurement-Based Approach for Speed Control of Induction Machines Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2014 IEEE. This paper presents an approach to design a measurement-based controller for induction machines. The proposed control approach is motivated by the fact that developing an appropriate mechanical model of such induction machines is a challenging task. Since our proposed control methodology is only on the basis of measured data, the controller design does not require any information about the model of the mechanical part. The control of motor drive is often based on sensorless field-oriented control techniques because of their advantages such as noise and cost reductions and high reliability. Hence, we assume here that measurements used for the controller design are collected using an estimator based on the electrical equations of the induction machine. A practical application to control the speed of an induction machine is presented to validate and demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed method.
