A Simplfied Voltage Vector Selection Strategy for Direct Torque Control

The direct torque control (DTC) for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) possesses have many advantages: simple control configuration, low parameter dependency, fast dynamic response, lack of coordinate transformation and rotor position except for the initial position. But it also suffers from some disadvantages, especially high torque ripple and variable switching frequency [1]-[3]. In nature the DTC is the hysteresis control. Voltage vector selection strategy as the hysteresis control principle determines the system’s performance. Normally switching table is used as voltage vector selection strategy to control the amplitude of stator flux and torque. But switching table can’t always satisfy the control of torque [4], [5]. Thus to study voltage vector selection strategy is critical to improve the PMSM DTC system’s performance [6]- [8].

Improved dynamic performance of direct torque control of induction machines

Improved dynamic performance of direct torque control of induction machines

In practice, a flux weakening strategy is normally used to extend the motor speed operations beyond the base speed and to enhance the capability of torque. Several papers were published [42, 50-63] proposing the solution of achieving maximum torque capability in field weakening region. The common approach adopted is to estimate the optimal flux level of the motor based on the maximum values of inverter voltage and inverter current. Typically, the algorithms require frame transformer, knowledge of machine parameters and space-vector modulator. For examples, [53] used Field Oriented Control-Space Vector Modulation (FOC- SVM) while [63] used Direct Torque Control-Space Vector Modulation (DTC- SVM), and they consider voltage and current limit conditions to compute the

Direct Torque Control of Induction Motors with Fuzzy Minimization Torque Ripple

Direct Torque Control of Induction Motors with Fuzzy Minimization Torque Ripple

Abstract — Direct torque control (DTC) is a new method of induction motor control. The key issue of the DTC is the strategy of selecting proper stator voltage vectors to force stator flux and developed torque within a prescribed band. Due to the nature of hysteresis control adopted in DTC, there is no difference in control action between a larger torque error and a small one. It is better to divide the torque error into different intervals and give different control voltages for each of them. To deal with this issue a fuzzy controller has been introduced. But, because the number of rules is too high some problems arise and the speed of fuzzy reasoning will be affected. In this paper, a comparison between a new fuzzy direct-torque control (DTFC) with space vector modulation (SVM) is made. The principle and a tuning procedure of the fuzzy direct torque control scheme are discussed. The simulation results, which illustrate the performance of the proposed control scheme in comparison with the fuzzy hysteresis connected of DTC scheme are given.

The Study Of The Method Of The Direct Torque Control Based On Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation

From the simulation results in this paper, we can see that in the traditional DTC control strategy, the current, torque and flux ripple are large, and the static dynamic performance is not particularly stable. But the space voltage vector modulation technology, which takes advantage of SVM, use voltage vector to completely compensate the stator flux error, and make use of the PI regulator to replace the traditional hysteresis comparator in order to achieve steady-state flux-free no-static control. Thus it can reduce the flux ripple and torque ripple of the motor, which is able to make the flux locus smoother and the electromagnetic torque tracking faster. Also, the advantage of fast response in the traditional DTC control

Direct Torque Control Strategy for Dual Three Phase Induction Motors

In order to maximize the amplitude of (α,β) voltage vectors and to minimize (o1-o2) and (o3-o4) voltage vectors we choose the switching modes for the SPIM .

NOVEL DIRECT TORQUE CONTROL BASED ON SPACE VECTOR MODULATION WITH ADAPTIVE STATOR FLUX OBSERVER FOR INDUCTION MOTORS

NOVEL DIRECT TORQUE CONTROL BASED ON SPACE VECTOR MODULATION WITH ADAPTIVE STATOR FLUX OBSERVER FOR INDUCTION MOTORS

Direct Torque Control (DTC) is a method that has emerged to become one possible alternative to the well- known Vector Control of Induction Motors. This method provides a good performance with a simpler structure and control diagram. In DTC it is possible to control directly the stator flux and the torque by selecting the appropriate VSI state. A variety of techniques have been proposed to overcome some of the drawbacks present in DTC [2, 8]. Some solutions proposed are: DTC with Space Vector Modulation (SVM); the use of a duty-- ratio controller to introduce a modulation between active vectors chosen from the look-up table and the zero vectors; use of artificial intelligence techniques. A different approach to improve DTC features is to employ different converter topologies from the standard two-level VSI. The major advantage of the three-level VSI topology when applied to DTC is the increase in the number of voltage vectors available. This means the number of possibilities in the vector selection process is greatly increased and may lead to a more accurate control system, which may result in a reduction in the torque and flux ripples.

Direct torque control of induction motor using SVM-VSI .

Direct torque control of induction motor using SVM-VSI .

In conventional direct torque control (DTC), the selection of flux linkage and electromagnetic torque errors are made within the respective flux and torque hysteresis bands, in order to obtain fast torque response, low inverter switching frequency and low harmonic losses. However, DTC drive utilizing hysteresis comparator suffers from high torque ripple and variable switching frequency. Space vector modulation is the strategy to minimize the torque ripple of induction motor in which, the stator flux level is selected in accordance with the efficiency optimized motor performance. In this work space vector modulation method is incorporated with direct torque control for induction motor drives. However, the direct torque control space vector modulation strategy is the calculation of the required voltage space vector to compensate the flux and torque errors exactly by using a predictive technique and then its generation using the space vector modulation at each sample period.

The selection of a voltage vector at each cycle period is made in order to maintain the torque and the stator flux within the limits of two hysteresis bands. This simple approach allows a quick torque response to be achieved, but the steady state performance is characterized by undesirable ripple in current, flux and torque. This behaviour is mainly due to the absence of information about torque and rotor speed values in the voltage selection algorithm.

Direct torque control of IM using PID controller

Direct torque control "DTC" technique is one of a high performance control system of an AC motor drive, which was proposed after the vector oriented control scheme during the resent 25 years. It has been developed rapidly for its concise system scheme, transient and dynamic performance. The DTC mechanism consists of voltage vector selection table, two hysteresis comparators and two estimator’s one for stator flux and another for electromagnetic torque.

A Novel 4WD Electric Vehicle Control Strategy Based on Direct Torque Control Space Vector Modulation Technique

A Novel 4WD Electric Vehicle Control Strategy Based on Direct Torque Control Space Vector Modulation Technique

In this technique two proportional integral (PI) type con- trollers are used instead of hysteresis band regulating the torque and the magnitude of flux as it shown in Figure 2, by generating the voltage command for inverter control. Noting that no decoupling mechanism is required as the flux magnitude and the torque can be regulated easily by the PI controllers. Due to the structure of the inverter, the DC bus voltage is fixed, therefore the speed of voltage space vectors are not controllable, but we can adjust the speed by means of inserting the zero voltage vectors to control the electromagnetic torque generated by the in- duction motor. The selection of vectors is also changed. It is not based on the region of the flux linkage, but on the error vector between the expected and the estimated flux linkage [6].

In a DTC drive, flux linkage and electromagnetic torque are controlled directly independently by the selection of optimum inverter switching modes. The selection is made to restrict the flux linkages and electromagnetic torque errors within the respective flux and torque hysteresis bands. The required optimal switching vectors can be selected by using so-called optimum switching-voltage vector look-up table. This can be obtained by simple physical considerations involving the position of the stator-flux linkage space vector, the available switching vectors, and the required torque flux linkage

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE VECTOR CONTROL AND THE DIRECT TORQUE CONTROL PMSM DRIVES

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE VECTOR CONTROL AND THE DIRECT TORQUE CONTROL PMSM DRIVES

Singh et. al. [4] analyzed the performance of the Field Oriented Control (FOC) of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) drive with a PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) in dc link voltage control and Fuzzy PID for speed control in closed loop operation thus inferring that the fuzzy controller provides a better response to the drive system especially in the steady state condition. Alexander Verl and Marc Bodson [5] discussed the problem of maximizing the torque of permanent magnet synchronous motors in the presence of voltage and current constraints. They have given the formulae suitable for the operation with voltage and current source inverters and for real-time computation. Zhong L.Rahman et. al. [6] presented a direct torque control scheme for permanent magnet synchronous motor drives, where current controllers followed by PWM or hysteresis comparator are not used. The characteristics of a permanent-magnet synchronous motor are influenced greatly by the back-electromotive force waveforms in the motor, which are directly related its magnet shape. Therefore attempts are made by researchers to optimize the radius of the magnet with respect to number of poles, rotor size, and magnet thickness for the best results regarding the total harmonic distortion. Further several designs are tried and being developed for the control of PMSM in the field weakening (constant power) region without any danger of permanent loss of magnetisation employing techniques like Finite Element Modelling (FEM). The paper basically analyses the performance of PMSM under direct torque control and vector control strategy along with their respective comparative study through simulink models.

Minimization of torque ripples in direct torque control of induction motor at low speeds

Minimization of torque ripples in direct torque control of induction motor at low speeds

Furthermore, the parameters estimation (stator flux and torque) technique of DTC is much simpler and straightforward than that of FOC. Generally, the estimation is based on manipulation of the stator voltages and currents, expressed in a stationary reference frame, as well as the stator’s resistance only. Nevertheless, the accuracy of parameters’ estimation is of significant importance as it may lead to selection of an improper voltage vector and hence highly degrades the control performance of DTC. The stator flux and torque can be estimated using voltage-, current- based estimators or combination of both. The conventional DTC scheme, proposed in [18], was based on a combination (voltage and current) estimator. On the one hand, the current-based estimator requires the knowledge of rotor speed. Sequentially, a further speed sensor is mandatory which, in turn, increases system’s complexity. On the other hand, a
