Modeling, Simulation and Control of Electrical Drives
Thanks to advances in power electronics device design, digital signal processing technologies and energy efficient algorithms, ac motors have become the backbone of the power electronics industry. Variable frequency drives (VFD's) together with IE3 and IE4 induction motors, permanent magnet motors, and synchronous reluctance motors have emerged as a new generation of greener high-performance technologies, which offer improvements to process and speed control, product quality, energy consumption and diagnostics analytics.
Primarily intended for professionals and advanced students who are working on sensorless control, predictive control, direct torque control, speed control and power quality and optimisation techniques for electric drives, this edited book surveys state of the art novel control techniques for different types of ac machines. The book provides a framework of different modeling and control algorithms using MATLAB®/Simulink®, and presents design, simulation and experimental verification techniques for the design of lower cost and more reliable and performant systems.
