Encoderless direct torque controller for limited speed range applications of brushless doubly-fed reluctance motors
- Publisher: IEEE
Presents the experimental verification of a new sensor-less control algorithm for direct torque (and flux) control (DTC) of the BDFRM in low variable frequency applications (e.g. wind energy conversion systems) where the low cost potential of the machine can be best exploited by using partially-rated power electronics. Brings a significant contribution to knowledge in the subject field as the proposed scheme has many important advantages over its counterparts in the target applications. Represents one of the main achievements of the aforementioned EPSRC project.
