Asynchronous Motor Nonlinear Control with Inverter Output LC Filter Conference Paper uri icon


  • In many adjustable electric drives the LC filter is used to smooth the voltages and currents supplying AC motors. The LC filter makes it difficult to implement precise control of these motors especially in the case of speed sensorless solution. Because measuring motor currents and capacitor voltages is not practical, a preferable solution is to measure only filter input current. A good approach is to use observers to restore unmeasured state variables. Additionally, it is necessary to modify the used control in case of the drive with LC filter. In this paper the proposed system with nonlinear control method of the asynchronous motor, and the speed and flux observer structure were been adapted regarding the LC filter. In the presented drive only sensors previously used in the system without LC filter were used. 1.5kW drive was verified in by simulation and experiments. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
