    The obsolescence of materials and processes used in the manufacture of traditional DC brush gear motors has necessitated the development of an upgraded DC brush gear motor (UBGM). The current traditional DC brush gear motor (BGM) design was evaluated using Six-Sigma process to identify potential design and production process improvements. The development effort resulted in a qualified UBGM design which improved manufacturability and reduced production costs. Using Six-Sigma processes and incorporating lessons learned during the development process also improved motor performance for UBGM making it a more viable option for future use as a deployment mechanism in space flight applications.

    DC brush motors have several qualities which make them very attractive for space flight applications. Their mechanical commutation is simple and lightweight, requiring no external sensing and control in order to function properly. They are extremely efficient in converting electrical energy into mechanical energy. Efficiencies over 80% are not uncommon, resulting in high power throughput to weight ratios. However, the inherent unreliability and short life of sliding electrical contacts, especially in vacuum, have driven previous programs to utilize complex brushless DC or the less efficient stepper motors. The Mars Surveyor Program (MSP'98) and the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) have developed a reliable "long life" brush type DC motor for operation in low temperature, low pressure CO2 and N2, utilizing silver-graphite brushes. The original intent was to utilize this same motor for SRTM's space operation, but the results thus far have been unsatisfactory in vacuum. This paper describes the design, test, and results of this development.

    This paper proposes an intelligent controller for brush less DC motor and load with unknown nonlinear dynamics. The proposed intelligent control system consists of a plant identifier and PID controller with varying gains. The identifier is constructed using an Auto Regressive Moving Average(ARMA) model. In order to tune the parameters of the identifier and the gains of the PID controller efficiently, we also propose a modified Evolution Strategy. Experimental results show that the proposed intelligent controller for brush less DC motor has good control performance under unknown disturbance. (author). 13 refs., 7 figs., 1 tab.

    1997-06-01

    An adaptive input-output linearization technique for a robust speed control of a brush less DC (BLDC) motor is presented. By using this technique, the nonlinear motor model can be effectively linearized in Brunovski canonical form, and the desired speed dynamics can be obtained based on the linearized model. This control technique, however, gives an undesirable output performance under the mismatch of the system parameters and load conditions caused by the incomplete linearization. For the robust output response, the controller parameters will be estimated by a model reference adaptive technique where the disturbance torque and flux linkage are estimated. The adaptation laws are derived by the Popov`s hyper stability theory and positivity concept. The proposed control scheme is implemented on a BLDC motor using the software of DSP TMS320C30 and the effectiveness is verified through the comparative simulations and experiments.

    Purpose: Linac-MR systems for real-time image-guided radiotherapy will utilize the multileaf collimators (MLCs) to perform conformal radiotherapy and tumor tracking. The MLCs would be exposed to the external fringe magnetic fields of the linac-MR hybrid systems. Therefore, an experimental investigation of the effect of an external magnetic field on the brushed permanent magnet DC motors used in some MLC systems was performed. Methods: The changes in motor speed and current were measured for varying external magnetic field strengths up to 2000 G generated by an EEV electromagnet. These changes in motor characteristics were measured for three orientations of the motor in the external magnetic field, mimicking changes in motor orientations due to installation and/or collimator rotations. In addition, the functionality of the associated magnetic motor encoder was tested. The tested motors are used with the Varian 120 leaf Millennium MLC (Maxon Motor half leaf and full leaf motors) and the Varian 52 leaf MKII MLC (MicroMo Electronics leaf motor) including a carriage motor (MicroMo Electronics). Results: In most cases, the magnetic encoder of the motors failed prior to any damage to the gearbox or the permanent magnet motor itself. This sets an upper limit of the external magnetic field strength on the motor function. The measured limits of the external magnetic fields were found to vary by the motor type. The leaf motor used with a Varian 52 leaf MKII MLC system tolerated up to 450{+-}10 G. The carriage motor tolerated up to 2000{+-}10 G field. The motors used with the Varian 120 leaf Millennium MLC system were found to tolerate a maximum of 600{+-}10 G. Conclusions: The current Varian MLC system motors can be used for real-time image-guided radiotherapy coupled to a linac-MR system, provided the fringe magnetic fields at their locations are below the determined tolerance levels. With the fringe magnetic fields of linac-MR systems expected to be larger than the

    Full Text Available This paper presents the adaptive controller design for brushed permanent magnet DC motor used in velocity-tracking applications based on worst-case approach. We first formulate the robust adaptive control problem as a nonlinear H∞-control problem under imperfect state measurement, and then solve it using game-theoretic approach. The controller guarantees the boundedness of closed-loop signals with bounded exogenous disturbances, and achieves desired disturbance attenuation level with respect to the unmeasured exogenous disturbance inputs and the measured disturbance inputs. The strong robustness properties are illustrated by a simulation example.

    Brush motors have been qualified and flown successfully on Mars missions, but upcoming missions require longer life and higher power. A test program was therefore undertaken to identify the best brush material for operation in the Mars atmosphere. Six different brush materials were used in 18 identical motors and operated under various load conditions for a period of four weeks in low-pressure CO2. All motors performed acceptably, with accumulated motor revolutions between 98 and 144 million revolutions, depending on load. A proprietary silver-graphite material from Superior Carbon (SG54-27) appears to be the best choice for long life, but even the stock copper-graphite brushes performed reliably with acceptable wear. The motors from the CO2 test were then cleaned and run in vacuum for 2 weeks. The difference in results was dramatic, with 5 motors failing catastrophically and wear rates increasing by orders of magnitude for the SG54-27 material. Three brush materials survived the test with no failures: SG54-27 with a proprietary Ball Aerospace impregnation, a silver-graphite-molybdenum disulfide material from Superior Carbon (SG59), and a copper sulfide-graphite material also from Superior Carbon (BG91).

The stationary portion, i.e., the stator, is formed by the inside of the machine. The rotor contains an array of permanent magnets that provide a uniform field. The windings of the motor are placed in or on the stator. The stator windings are then "switched" or "commutated" to provide a DC motor/generator much the same as in a conventional DC motor.

    This invention relates to a motor control system for a brushless DC motor having an inverter responsively coupled to the motor control system and in power transmitting relationship to the motor. The motor control system includes a motor rotor speed detecting unit that provides a pulsed waveform signal proportional to rotor speed. This pulsed waveform signal is delivered to the inverter to thereby cause an inverter fundamental current waveform output to the motor to be switched at a rate proportional to said rotor speed. In addition, the fundamental current waveform is also pulse width modulated at a rate proportional to the rotor speed. A fundamental current waveform phase advance circuit is controllingly coupled to the inverter. The phase advance circuit is coupled to receive the pulsed waveform signal from the motor rotor speed detecting unit and phase advance the pulsed waveform signal as a predetermined function of motor speed to thereby cause the fundamental current waveform to be advanced and thereby compensate for fundamental current waveform lag due to motor winding reactance which allows the motor to operate at higher speeds than the motor is rated while providing optimal torque and therefore increased efficiency.

    Full Text Available The objective of this project is to build a simple current controlled modulation technique for brushless dc motors. In electric traction and most other applications, a wide range of speed and torque control of the electric motor is required. The dc machine fulfills these requirements, but the dc machine requires constant maintenance. But the brushless permanent magnet motors do not have brushes and so they require less maintenance only. Brushless dc motors are widely used in applications which require wide range of speed and torque control because of its low inertia, fast response, high reliability and maintenance free. This current controlled technique is based on the generation of quasi- square wave currents using only one controller for the three phases. The current control strategy uses a triangular carrier for the power transistors which is simpler and more accuratethan any other options. The advantages of this technique are: a The stator currents are completely characterized by their maximum amplitude , b The three phases are controlled with the same dc component , and then the phase currents are kept at exactly the same magnitude I max, c The dc link current measurement is not required .d phase currents are kept balanced and phase over currents are eliminated.

    2007-01-01

    The upper part of the figure illustrates the major functional blocks of a direction-sensitive analog tachometer circuit based on the use of an unexcited two-phase brushless dc motor as a rotation transducer. The primary advantages of this circuit over many older tachometer circuits include the following: Its output inherently varies linearly with the rate of rotation of the shaft. Unlike some tachometer circuits that rely on differentiation of voltages with respect to time, this circuit relies on integration, which results in signals that are less noisy. There is no need for an additional shaft-angle sensor, nor is there any need to supply electrical excitation to a shaft-angle sensor. There is no need for mechanical brushes (which tend to act as sources of electrical noise). The underlying concept and electrical design are relatively simple. This circuit processes the back-electromagnetic force (back-emf) outputs of the two motor phases into a voltage directly proportional to the instantaneous rate (sign magnitude) of rotation of the shaft. The processing in this circuit effects a straightforward combination of mathematical operations leading to a final operation based on the well-known trigonometric identity (sin x)2 + (cos x)2 = 1 for any value of x. The principle of operation of this circuit is closely related to that of the tachometer circuit described in Tachometer Derived From Brushless Shaft-Angle Resolver (MFS-28845), NASA Tech Briefs, Vol. 19, No. 3 (March 1995), page 39. However, the present circuit is simpler in some respects because there is no need for sinusoidal excitation of shaftangle- resolver windings.

    Full Text Available Following the extension and increase in capacity of power electronic elements, many convertors with special applications have been designed. Convertors such as rectifiers, AC and DC power supplies, AC and DC drivers and so on. At present, optimization of these convertors, decreasing loss and bringing down the electromagnetic interference are desired. In this paper, a DC to DC convertor for controlling the speed  of DC motor is designed and  one prototype is presented in which switching losses is close to zero and it has a very low electromagnetic interference. In this convertor, the switches  turn on and turn off approximately with zero current. The speed of motor is controlled by PWM.  This plan includes advantages of  PWM and resonant convertors.The disadvantages, such as ;  high switching losses and changing switching  frequency  for controlling output were removed. As switching frequency has a direct relation with switching losses, when losses decreased, it is possible to increase the frequency, then volume and weight of passive filter elements can be decreased. Besides, by decreasing the losses ,  the need of  heatsink , which is  the heavy and voluminous elements of convertors, can be removed.

    Implementation of principles described in a previous work has allowed development and introduction to series production of a motor series including 36 standard types and sizes. The series is designed to operate at a nominal voltage of 27 V and includes two main versions: the BK-1 for fans and BK-2 for pumps. The BK-2 motor differs from the BK-1 in that it has a thin sealed sleeve of high impedance nonmagnetic metal separating the rotor and stator cavities, allowing the rotor of the BK-2 to operate in the fluids or other media being pumped. Characteristics of the motors are presented. The BK-1316 has an operating life of about 50,000 hours at nominal speed of 6000 rpm. The experience of series production of the BK motors has shown the need for further improvement of the design and technology in order to decrease the number of metal cutting, winding and assembly operations required. The use of plastic structures is suggested to this end.

  18. The analysis and design of brushless D.C. motors

    Science.gov (United States)

    Benarous, Maamar

    In modern computer systems electrical drives are used to rotate hard discs. These motors require special torque- speed characteristics. The speed of the hard disc must be constant in order for the unit to function correctly. One type of drive, which is used for hard discs is the brushless-DC-motor. This machine has permanent magnet excitation and a polyphase armature winding. It therefore takes the form of a synchronous machine, and in order to be brushless the armature winding is stationary and the excitation rotates. To run at adjustable speed a variable frequency supply is required. In the brushless D.C form the inverter output is phase locked to the rotor position, it is therefore electro-magnetically similar to the D.C machine where fixed brushes determine the frequency and phase of the current in the armature winding. In order to perform the phase lock action signals measuring the rotor position are needed. In one form of machine Hall effect probes detect the position of the rotor poles, in a second given that the rotor is in motion the induced back emf is used. Experimentally it is convenient to replace these magnet systems with a photo- transistor and rotating shutter system and this was the approach used in this thesis. The objective of this research is to investigate different aspects of this motor. The generation, measurement, and placement of signals is described and illustrated, and the design and construction of an inverter supply circuit is described. Both 2D and 3D finite element analysis is used in order to find the machine parameters as well as cogging torque analysis, using the concept of permanent magnet magnetisation characteristics. It is shown that the cogging can be reduced for certain types of magnetisation. The finite element analysis is taken further by connecting the drive circuit needed to run the machine into the finite element mesh, the machine parameters are defined using this method. The close agreement between the simulation and

Preliminary a PID controller is designed using Genetic Algorithms (GA). The proposed controller is implemented by using optimal integral state feedback control with GA and Kalman filter. In the proposed scheme, performance depends on choosing weighting matrices Q and R in the cost function, and accordingly GA is used to find these proper weighting matrices. In order to reduce the control performance degradation due to system parameters variation, a Kalman filter is gained. The performance of the proposed technique (ISF) is compared with PID controller.

Hence, these motors are commonly used in low power applications and their design and optimization is an important consideration. Genetic algorithms are proposed for design optimization of PMD motors because of their independence to objective function structure and its derivative. In this paper genetic algorithms are evaluated for PMDC motor design optimization. an introduction is first presented about PMDC motors, general design procedure and elements of their optimization. Genetic algorithms are then briefly described. Finally results of optimization by genetic algorithms are compared with the one obtained using a conventional method

  15. PID controller simulator software for DC motor of gamma scanning

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Mostly PID controller (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) has been used in industry. For certain applications, it can be used as a Proportional (P) model only, or as a Proportional-Integral (PI) model. The aim of this paper is to design a PID controller simulator software for DC motor which is used in gamma scanning system. A DC motor is described as a plant of SISO (Single Input Single Output) which is used for pulling down the load (detector + casing) and gamma radiation source (Co-60 + container) by using sling cable. A DC motor consist of an armature and a rotor, the equivalent circuit of DC motor is shown in a transfer function equation between output parameter (angular speed DC motor) and input parameter (voltage of DC motor). Methods used for the process of PID controller design is to arrange the PID controller parameter (Kc, Ti, Td) so that there are more PID controller transfer function model which are able to control angular speed of DC motor in stable condition, as design criteria requirement is needed. Design criteria requirement for control system are the settling time < 3 second, overshoot < 5%, rise time = 0.25 second, steady state gain = 1 and peak time < 3 second with step response reference 1 rad/second. The result of simulation gives several models of PID controller in function transfer equation which is similar with design criteria requirement in a equation of function transfer of order 2 for numerator and order 1 for denominator.

    Full Text Available Output signal in the form of a step response of a DC motor can be obtained by providing the input signal to the motor in the form of a signal step directly. Step response obtained in this way usually contains a lot of noise. To reduce noise, this research was designed with the aim to get the step response using signal compression method in which the input signal is not a step but a signal with a specific shape given to the motor and if the output signal of the motor is compressed, it will obtain impulse response. Step response of the DC motor can be obtained by doing the integral to the impulse response. Step response which is obtained using signal compression method will be used to estimate parameters model of DC motor to see the validity of this method. The result of this research shows that the estimated value of the parameters from the step response has value closer to the value of the parameters given to the model of a DC motor. The conclusion of this research is the method of signal compression can be used to obtain the step response of a DC motor model. Further research will be conducted on the actual motor instead of using a mathematical model.

    Due to precise, wide, simple, and continuous control characteristics, direct current (DC) motors have been commonly employed in many industrial applications such as electric vehicles, steel rolling mills, electric cranes, and robotic manipulators. Because of their lower cost and ease of controller implementation, DC motors are preferred over alternating current (AC) motors. System identification of DC motors is of great importance in control problems. Accurate mathematical models and their parameters are necessary when designing controllers. This paper addressed driver circuits and parameters identification of a permanent magnet DC motor. An experimental measurement of armature voltage, armature current and rotor speed were performed using a data acquisition module in order to identify the parameters of the motor. DAQ toolbox and Simulink in MATLAB were used to obtain test signals and perform analysis based on the nonlinear least square method. The extracted motor parameters produced consistent simulation results with experimental data. It was concluded that the proposed approach is simple, fast and accurate. 16 refs., 4 tabs., 9 figs.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Instrumentation for controlling the power of reactor of TRIGA Mark II uses the stepper motor to move the control rod of neutron absorbers. The direction and speed of control rod movement are determined by the polarity and the amplitude of DC voltage as an error signal that is the difference of set point of power and the power of being measured on the control system. The unit of stepper motor controller of reactor instrumentation of TRIGA Mark II uses patent module of trade Mark of Vexta, USA. In this chance, the electronic circuit is made to function as the control of stepper motor movement by using the DC voltage to anticipate the problem may be faced in case of repair and maintenance of reactor instrumentation. As a result of experiment, it is stated that the control of motor movement by using DC voltage is performed into 2 stages.

    A DC motor's performance is usually characterized by a series of tests, which are conducted by pass/fail criteria. In most cases, these tests are adequate to address the performance characteristics under environmental and loading effects with some uncertainties and decent power/torque margins. However, if the motor performance requirement is very stringent, a better understanding of the motor characteristics is required. The purpose of this paper is to establish a standard way to extract the torque components of the brushless motor and gear box characteristics of a high gear ratio geared motor from the composite geared motor testing and motor parameter measurement. These torque components include motor magnetic detent torque, Coulomb torque, viscous torque, windage torque, and gear tooth sliding torque. The Aerospace Corp bearing torque model and MPB torque models are used to predict the Coulomb torque of the motor rotor bearings and to model the viscous components. Gear tooth sliding friction torque is derived from the dynamo geared motor test data. With these torque data, the geared motor mechanical efficiency can be estimated and provide the overall performance of the geared motor versus several motor operating parameters such as speed, temperature, applied current, and transmitted power.

    The DC motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. This paper presented power quality measurements for a DC drive. A laboratory setup consisting of a 5 hp DC drive connected to a load resistor bank was established to conduct the measurements. The purpose was to determine how various loading conditions on DC drives affect efficiency, input power factor to the DC drive and total harmonic distortion of output armature current of a DC drive. In conducting these measurements, 3 different loading conditions were examined while the output (armature) voltage of the DC drive was increased from about 25 per cent to 100 per cent. Two results were observed. Efficiency increased as the armature voltage increased and total input power factor decreased as the armature voltage increased. The result of total harmonic distortion measurements done on the armature current agreed with the expectation due to the increasing DC component of the armature voltage waveform. Both utilities and consumers will find the data from these measurements useful in terms of power quality by knowing how various operating conditions of a DC drive affect the power quality differently at both its input and output. 6 refs., 5 figs.

    In order to reduce production cost and increase production efficiency of compressor motors for air conditioners, development was made for the first time in the world on a production line for concentrated winding DC motors in which wires are wound directly on a stator core. Advantages of the concentrated winding motor are size reduction as a result of shortened coil end length, reduction in the amount of copper wire used, and enhancement in the efficiency. The gist in the technical points is as follows: (1) technology to form bobbin with thin wall to ensure insulation when winding; (2) semi-normal inner winding technology to wind wires from inside of the stator core; and (3) automatic coil end terminating technology. When compared to the conventional production line of inserter type motors, the capital investment was reduced by 1/3, installation space by 1/3, manpower by 18 workers, and motor cost by 16%.

    In recent years, the motors for the factory automation need performance positioning with high speed and high accuracy. In this paper, a high response Linear DC Motor (LDM) is considered by two aspects. One is the movement of LDMs by the transfer function. The other is an impedance of the moving coil by measurement. The design indicators were led to high speed response from these considerations. They are reducing the inductance and enlarging the thrust constant. The validity of the design indicator is confirmed by designing and manufacturing LDM for a high-speed response. The measured settling time of the indicial response is 80 milli seconds.

The figure shows the main circuitry composed of four semiconductor elements in the inverter section. This circuit is characterized in that the third phase of the motor is outputted from the neutral point potential in the DC intermediate circuit, realizing improved efficiency because of reduction in the number of semiconductor elements. Furthermore, the system is capable of realizing the PAM controlled operation from an operation zone with lower speed than in conventional ordinary inverter systems using six semiconductor elements. Thus, switching loss can be reduced in the inverter section during low speed operation of the brushless DC motor, and carrier loss in the motor can also be reduced. From the results of the Fuji Electric's experiments, an overall efficiency is now improved higher by up to about 25% than the conventional system. (translated by NEDO)

    A digital control development effort is introduced, citing a case of DSP (digital signal processor)-aided DC servo motor control for the flat head type pen plotter. In a real plotter, a complicated nonlinear problem will arise because the natural frequency varies dependent upon the pen position. For the inhibition of such vibration which occurs during acceleration and deceleration, nonlinear elements have to be taken into consideration at the designing stage. In this report, the effort is focused on motor axis control only, and the DC servo control problem is solved as a linear problem. A DSP board type DS1102 of the dSPACE Corporation is named for this work. Using this board, the C code is automatically generated out of a control block constructed through SIMULINK, and a real-time test is conducted after downloading the code to the DSP processor. Since the quantity of DC servo motor rotation is quantized in an encoder, the result would contain much error and cause instability in the control if the quantity as obtained was subjected to differential calculus. Such being the case, velocity data for the control in this report are acquired by use of an observer. (NEDO)

  1. IE Information No. 87-08: Degraded motor leads in Limitorque dc motor operators

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    On May 6, 1986 the NRC received from Portland General Electric Company a 10 CFR 21 report concerning a motor failure which occurred at its Trojan Nuclear Power Plant. The failure involved shorting of the motor leads inside a Limitorque motor operator connected to an auxiliary feedwater flow control valve. Upon inspection it was determined that the failure was the result of insulation degradation of the motor leads that had allowed two leads to short together. Recently, the NRC has also learned of a failure at the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant in which the steam supply valve for the auxiliary feedwater turbine failed to operate after a Limitorque motor operator experienced a similar motor lead short circuit. The Trojan and the Turkey Point Limitorque operators were found to contain motors manufactured with Nomex-Kapton insulated leads. On January 12--14, 1987, the NRC conducted an inspection at Peerless-Winsmith, Inc., manufacturer of dc motors for Limitorque Co. During this inspection it was determined that the failed Nomex-Kapton leads were different than the leads which were fitted to the motors, tested, and documented in Limitorque Qualification Report B-0009 for dc motor operators. The leads attached to the tested motors were insulated with Nomex plus an epoxy impregnated braided fiberglass sleeve. The NRC knows of no analysis or testing that has been performed to show the Nomex-Kapton leads are acceptable for use in an application requiring environmental qualification. Further, it should be noted that the failures cited above occurred under normal operating conditions, not under the harsh conditions which could occur in areas where environmental qualification is required

    Full Text Available This paper presents an emotional controller for brushless DC motor (BLDC drive. The proposed controller is called brain emotional learning based intelligent controller (BELBIC. The utilization of the new controller is based on the emotion processing mechanism in brain. This intelligent control is inspired by the limbic system of mammalian brain, especially amygdala. The controller is successfully implemented in simulation using MATLAB software, brushless dc drive with trapezoidal back-emf. In this work, a novel and simple implementation of BLDC motor drive system is achieved by using the intelligent controller, which controls the motor speed accurately. This emotional intelligent controller has simple structure with high auto learning feature. Simulation results show that both accurate steady state and fast transient speed responses can be achieved in wide range of speed from 20 to 300 [rpm]. Moreover, to evaluate this emotional controller, the performance of the proposed control scheme is compared with both Fuzzy Logic (FL and PID controllers, in different conditions. This indicates proper operating in comparison to the FLC and PID controllers. And also shows excellent promise for industrial scale utilization.

    Electronics is the key technology in control engineering, but even the best control system requires reliable modules to transmit signals. Modern electric motors have become indispensable here. There are nearly as many motor types as there are applications. Electromagnetic conversion of electric into mechanical power is directly related to motor design. There are AC and DC motors, one-speed motors and variable-speed motors. Rotary momentum and synchronisation can be optimized by selecting the appropriate motor type, as can dynamics and detent torque. Correct selection of the electric motor therefore is essential for an optimal drive concept. (orig.)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An asymptotic differentiation approach with respect to time is used for on-line estimation of velocity and acceleration signals in controlled dc motors. The attractive feature of this differentiator of signals is that it does not require any system mathematical model, which allows its use in engineering systems that require the signal differentiation for its control, identification, fault detection, among other applications. Moreover, it is shown that the differentiation approach can be applied for output signals showing a chaotic behavior. In addition a differential flatness control scheme with additional integral compensation of the output error is proposed for tracking tasks of position reference trajectories for direct current electric motors using angular position measurements only

    Full Text Available In last couple of decades, the control of motors has increased drastically. With this increase, current control techniques are developed. In sensor-less passivity control of a DC Motor the term passivity means the property of stability in an input and output. To maintain the stability at the input side the solar pv panel is connected with MPPT which extract maximum and stable voltage. For output we simultaneously regulate, both, the output voltage of the SEPIC-converter to a value larger than the solar panel output voltage, and the speed of motor, in any of the turning senses, so that it tracks a prespecified constant reference. For a sensor less current control of a PMDC motor, its small-signal model that contains a number of parasitic parameters the observed current may diverge due to the parasitic resistors and the forward conduction voltage of the diode. Moreover, the divergence of the observed current will cause steady state errors in the output voltage a self-correction differential current observer (SDCO is proposed to eliminate this steady-state error and gain high transient response speed. By carrying out a series of MATLAB simulation verifications, further investigation proves that the proposed algorithm has good robustness.

    Improved and advanced components being developed include electronically commutated permanent magnet motors of both drum and disk configuration, an unconventional brush commutated motor, and ac induction motors and various controllers. Test results on developmental motors, controllers, and combinations thereof indicate that efficiencies of 90% and higher for individual components, and 80% to 90% for motor/controller combinations can be obtained at rated power. The simplicity of the developmental motors and the potential for ultimately low cost electronics indicate that one or more of these approaches to electric vehicle propulsion may eventually displace presently used controllers and brush commutated dc motors.

It was estimated, up to now the operating PV water pumping systems in the world may exceed hundreds thousand sets and with a driving increasing tendency. In many cases the distributed stations gain the advantages over PV feed-in grid-connected pump. The majority of the PV pumping systems are driven by an ac asynchronous motor, which are generally of lower efficiency, especially for small-scale systems. A dc permanent magnetic, brushless, sensorless and casting resin motor are developed and used in PV water pumping systems, the experiments and operations of 19 demonstrative stations in Guangdong show that the results on economics and reliability are excited. It can save even 15% {proportional_to} 20% PV modules in comparison with an asynchronous motor driven under same sunshine, water head and flow. An example of comparison between systems with batteries and without batteries is also given in this paper.

    A LDM has the merits of a high response and a direct linear motion. Therefore, a LDM is used widely in the fields of Factory Automation (FA). As compared with a mono-polar type Linear DC Motor (LDM), it is possible for a multi-polar type LDM to have a longer stroke and more thrust with thin shape. However, there are thrust ripple on multi-polar type one. In this paper, a design to prevent thrust ripple is discussed. In order to make a smoother thrust on multi-polar type LDM, the structure of the LDM is set as a 2-phase coil type. This paper clarifies that the thrust ripple of the LDM has the minimum value of 1.68%, the pole pitch of 15 mm, the coil width of 12 mm and the permanent magnet width of 10 mm.

    The analysis of a separately excited DC motor driven by DC-DC converter is realized by using state-space averaging technique. Firstly, a general and unified large-signal averaged circuit model for DC-DC converters is given. The method converts power electronic systems, which are periodic time-variant because of their switching operation, to unified and time independent systems. Using the averaged circuit model enables us to combine the different topologies of converters. Thus, all analysis and design processes about DC motor can be easily realized by using the unified averaged model which is valid during whole period. Some large-signal variations such as speed and current relating to DC motor, steady-state analysis, large-signal and small-signal transfer functions are easily obtained by using the averaged circuit model.

    A discrete time model for simulation of the dynamics of samarium cobalt-type permanent magnet brushless dc machines is presented. The simulation model includes modeling of the interaction between these machines and their attached power conditioners. These are transistorized conditioner units. This model is part of an overall discrete-time analysis of the dynamic performance of electromechanical actuators, which was conducted as part of prototype development of such actuators studied and built for NASA-Johnson Space Center as a prospective alternative to hydraulic actuators presently used in shuttle orbiter applications. The resulting numerical simulations of the various machine and power conditioner current and voltage waveforms gave excellent correlation to the actual waveforms collected from actual hardware experimental testing. These results, numerical and experimental, are presented here for machine motoring, regeneration and dynamic braking modes. Application of the resulting model to the determination of machine current and torque profiles during closed-loop actuator operation were also analyzed and the results are given here. These results are given in light of an overall view of the actuator system components. The applicability of this method of analysis to design optimization and trouble-shooting in such prototype development is also discussed in light of the results at hand.

    One of fundamental problems in the factory automation is how to obtain linear motion. Linear motors produce directly the linear motion force without a motion-transform mechanism. Linear d.c. motors (LDMs) have excellent performance and controllability. However, the dynamics of small-sized LDMs is adversely affected by the dead-band due to the friction between brushes and commutators. In this paper, it is described that the design of the two-degree-of-freedom positioning system with a LDM using model reference type sliding mode controller (SMC). The proposed positioning system consists of a fixed gain feedforward controller and a SMC used as a feedback controller. The objective of the SMC is to repress the influence of nonlinear characteristics (the dead-band and parameter variations etc.). The tracking performance can be improved as the fixed gain feedforward controller makes a dynamic inverse system in the feedforward path. The effectiveness of the proposed system for improvement of the tracking performance is demonstrated by experimental results.

    2001-07-01

    For the past several years, researchers at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, under the sponsorship of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, have been investigating the ability of motor-operated valves (MOVs) used in Nuclear Power Plants to close or open when subjected to design basis flow and pressure loads. Part of this research addresses the response of a dcpowered motor-operated gate valve to assess whether it will achieve flow isolation and to evaluate whether it will slow down excessively under design-basis conditions and thus fail to achieve the required stroke time. As part of this research, we have developed a model of a dc motor operating under load and a model of actuator efficiency under load based on a first principle evaluation of the equipment. These models include the effect that reduced voltage at the Motor Control Center and elevated containment temperatures have on the performance of a dc powered MOV. The model also accounts for motor torque and speed changes that result from the heatup of the motor during the stroke. These models are part of the Motor- Operated Valve In Site Test Assessment (MISTA) software which is capable of independently evaluating the ability of dc-powered motoroperated gate valves to achieve flow isolation and to meet required stroke times under design-basis conditions. This paper presents an overview of the dc motor model and the actuator efficiency under load model. The paper then compares the analytical results from the models with the results of actual dc motor and actuator testing, including comparisons of the effect reduced voltage, elevated containment temperature, and motor heating during the stroke have on an MOV.

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available DC motors are used extensively in industrial variable speed applications because of most demanding speed-torque characteristics and are simple in controlling aspects. This paper presents a DC motor speed controlling technique under varying load condition. The linear system model of separately excited DC motor with Torque-variation is designed using PID controller. A Matlab simulation of proposed system with no-Load and full-load condition is performed on Simulink platform to observe the system response. The motor speed is kept constant in this experiment. The simulation result of the experiment shows that a motor is running approximately at a constant speed regardless of a motor load. The Simulink results show that the speed of the motor is slow down only for about 270 rpm (9% in 980 milliseconds under the effect of full load. However, the motor speed is hunting about 200 rpm (6.66% in 900 milliseconds on unloading condition. It is concluded that a PID controller is successful tool for controlling the motor speed in presence of load disturbances.

    Brushless DC motor (BLDCM) sensorless driving technology is becoming increasingly established. However, op-timal phase correction still relies on complex calculations or algorithms. In finding the correct commutation point, the problem of phase lag is introduced. In this paper, we extract DC bus current information for auto-calibrating the phase shift to obtain the correct commutation point and optimize the control of BLDC sensorless driving. As we capture only DC bus current information, the original shunt resistor is used in the BLDCM driver and there is no need to add further current sensor components. Software processing using only simple arithmetic operations successfully accomplishes the phase correction. Experimental results show that the proposed method can operate accurately and stably at low or high speed, with light or heavy load, and is suitable for practical applications. This approach will not increase cost but will achieve the best performance/cost ratio and meet market expectations.

    The dynamic operation of a DC motor drive depends on the choice of the regulator structure and synthesis of the regulator parameters. For that reason, the authors developed an approach to a real time optimal parameters adjustment for a DC motor drive. The approach is based on the system sensitivity analysis and identification theory. This innovative concept and algorithm provide a tool to control a DC motor drive in real time with an adaptive controller. The DC motor drive mathematical model was described by a set of the first order differential equations with constant coefficients. The regulator has speed and current control channels. The structure of the algorithm includes the sensitivity model, system sensitivity functions evaluation, and the circuits for the parameter incremental changes. The performance index is an integral of the squared error of the speed variation during the transients. The following four parameters were adjusted: the gains of the speed and current regulator in direct path; two gains in two feedback channels; and, speed and current control channels. The actual system was simulated by a system model and the algorithm was applied to a DC motor drive with typical parameters. Several numerical experiments were also carried out. The experiments validated the effectiveness and feasibility of the concept and algorithm. 6 refs., 5 figs., 1 appendix.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Phase-controlled converters are widely used because these converters are simple, less expensive, reliable, and do not require any communication circuit. Series motors are extensively used in many applications that require both high starting torque and essentially constant horse power. This paper is concerned with the detailed study of the performance characteristics of an AC-DC full-controlled converter supplying two DC-series-motor loads. The converter loads combination is simulated on a digital computer. Different modes of operation (continuous and discontinuous converter currents) are considered. The critical firing angle at which the mode of operation changes from one mode to another is deduced. The performance characteristics such input power factor, supply current distortion factor, supply current fundamental power factor, torque speed, and motor current ripple factor have been derived and studied for both constant firing angle and constant load factor have been derived and studied for both constant firing angle and constant load power of one motor. Waveforms for each load current and converter current are investigated for different modes of operation. (author)

    A functional model breadboard converter and a rare-earth-cobalt, permanent magnet motor; as well as an engineering model converter and PM motor suitable for vehicle installations were developed and tested. The converter and motor achieved an 88% peak efficiency, a maximum output of 26 kW at 26,000 rpm, and a continuous rating of 15 kW. The system also generated power to the source during braking, with a demonstrated peak power available at the converter terminals of approximately 26 kW at 88% efficiency. Major conclusions include: (1) the SAE J227a(D) driving cycle efficiency for the converter/motor is 86% to 88% when energy available for recovery at the converter terminals is included; (2) the converter initial cost is approximately five times that of the permanent magnet motor, but can be reduced by means of LSI logic and integrated liquid cooled semiconductor packages; and (3) an electronically commutated motor with a liquid cooled converter will operate reliably without service or maintenance for the life of a passenger vehicle.

    This paper proposes an alternative design of a sensorless DC motor drive via optimal observer-based servo control. Without the speed sensor, the extended Luenberger observer is implemented to estimate the rotor speed of the DC motor in the presence of the disturbance torque. With this knowledge of the speed estimated from the observer, the servo state-feedback controller can drive such a rotor speed to follow the desired one. The stability and performance of the DC drive system can be guaranteed by the optimal control which minimizes the H{sub 2} norm of the closed-loop feedback control and observer system. The simulation and experimental studies are demonstrated for the effectiveness of the proposed control methodology in a practical approach for the sensorless DC drive. (author)

    This paper describes a new wind turbine simulator for dynamic conditions. The authors have developed an experimental platform to simulate the static and dynamic characteristics of real wind energy conversion system. This system consists of a 3 kW dc motor, which drives a synchronous generator. The converter is a 3 kW single-phase half-controlled converter. MATLAB/Simulink real time control software interfaced to I/O board and a converter controlled dc motor are used instead of a real wind turbine. A MATLAB/Simulink model is developed that obtains wind profiles and, by applying real wind turbine characteristics in dynamics and rotational speed of dc motor, calculates the command shaft torque of a real wind turbine. Based on the comparison between calculated torques with command one, the shaft torque of dc motor is regulated accordingly by controlling armature current demand of a single-phase half-controlled ac-dc converter. Simulation and experimental results confirm the effectiveness of proposed wind turbine simulator in emulating and therefore evaluating various turbines under a wide variety of wind conditions.

This paper presents a new current control method to reduce the torque ripple due to phase commutation, when the unipolar PWM method is applied for the phase current control of brushless DC motor. In this paper, we analyze average voltage variations of conducting phase in commutation period with PWM pattern and design current controller to compensate average voltage variations. In addition, we prove the validity of proposed method by experimental results. (author). 7 refs., 13 figs., 1 tab.

    Full Text Available This paper presents the application of Fuzzy Logic for DC motor speed control using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO. Firstly, the controller designed according to Fuzzy Logic rules is such that the systems are fundamentally robust. Secondly, the Fuzzy Logic controller (FLC used earlier was optimized with PSO so as to obtain optimal adjustment of the membership functions only. Finally, the FLC is completely optimized by Swarm Intelligence Algorithms. Digital simulation results demonstrate that in comparison with the FLC the designed FLC-PSO speed controller obtains better dynamic behavior and superior performance of the DC motor, as well as perfect speed tracking with no overshoot.

    Full Text Available In this article, the speed of the DC motor is controlled by Hybrid Fuzzy-Neuro controller (FNC. The Hybrid Fuzzy-Neuro controller is designed and tested for different types of DC motors like DC separately excited motor and DC series motor. The motor is fed by DC-DC buck converter (DC chopper. The system has two loops of inner current controller loop and outer Fuzzy-Neuro based speed controller loop. The speed controller gives the duty cycle to generate the PWM signal for the control of chopper. There by the DC chopper controls the speed of the DC motor to the set value. The training data for training the FNC is acquired from Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC. The performances of FNC are analyzed in respect of load variation and speed variation using MATLAB/Simulink. The FNC reduces the peak overshoot, settling time and steady state error of the DC motor. It is found that the FNC can have better control compared with FLC.

    A control system for a brushless DC motor responsive to digital control signals is disclosed. The motor includes a multiphase wound stator and a permanent magnet rotor. The motor is arranged so that each phase winding, when energized from a DC source, will drive the rotor through a predetermined angular position or step. A commutation signal generator responsive to the shaft position provides a commutation signal for each winding. A programmable control signal generator such as a computer or microprocessor produces individual digital control signals for each phase winding. The control signals and commutation signals associated with each winding are applied to an AND gate for that phase winding. Each gate controls a switch connected in series with the associated phase winding and the DC source so that each phase winding is energized only when the commutation signal and the control signal associated with that phase winding are present. The motor shaft may be advanced one step at a time to a desired position by applying a predetermined number of control signals in the proper sequence to the AND gates and the torque generated by the motor be regulated by applying a separate control signal and each AND gate which is pulse width modulated to control the total time that each switch connects its associated winding to the DC source during each commutation period.

    This report is a fact sheet on new sensor and control technology written for the NICE3 Program. ENVATEC has addressed a major problem for paper producers with its ENVAIR 4000, a sensor and control technology that optimizes DC motor drive operations by simultaneously monitoring and analyzing eight inputs on DC motors. Attributes, such as motor air temperature, speed, vibration, relative humidity, presence of corrosive gases, airflow, and amperage, are measured for irregularities and then a signal is transmitted across the customer's facility on any network interface. This eliminates unscheduled motor shutdowns, thereby cutting energy costs tied to restarting. Based on successful prototype testing, the ENVAIR 4000 promises a 70% reduction in repair and replacement costs, an 80% reduction in unscheduled downtime and pulp waste, and a 43% drop in CO{sub 2} emissions.

  12. Enhancement of magnetic flux distribution in a DC superconducting electric motor

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hamid, N. A.; Ewe, L. S.; Chin, K. M.

    2013-06-01

    Most motor designs require an air gap between the rotor and stator to enable the armature to rotate freely. The interaction of magnetic flux from rotor and stator within the air gap will provide the thrust for rotational motion. Thus, the understanding of magnetic flux in the vicinity of the air gap is very important to mathematically calculate the magnetic flux generated in the area. In this work, a finite element analysis was employed to study the behavior of the magnetic flux in view of designing a synchronous DC superconducting electric motor. The analysis provides an ideal magnetic flux distribution within the components of the motor. From the flux plot analysis, it indicates that flux losses are mainly in the forms of leakage and fringe effect. The analysis also shows that the flux density is high at the area around the air gap and the rotor. The high flux density will provide a high force area that enables the rotor to rotate. In contrast, the other parts of the motor body do not show high flux density indicating low distribution of flux. Consequently, a bench top model of a DC superconducting motor was developed where by motor with a 2-pole type winding was chosen. Each field coil was designed with a racetrack-shaped double pancake wound using DI-BSCCO Bi-2223 superconducting tapes. The performance and energy efficiency of the superconducting motor was superior when compared to the conventional motor with similar capacity.

    Commercially available speed controllers, motors, and propellers typically comprise the powertrains of many micro aerial robotic systems, such as quadrotor vehicles. As on board state sensing and processing improves, actuation bandwidth is becoming a significant bottleneck that limits the performance of the entire closed loop system. The performance of the commercial products can be greatly enhanced through the implementation of classical control methods directly at the powertrain level. In this paper, reduced order open loop models for three representative commercially available powertrains were estimated and were compared with closed loop equivalents. Further performance improvement is realized by the addition of a static inverse to mitigate the steady state structured uncertainty of the system.

    Traditionally electrical motors have three phases, but multiphase motors have shown to improve motor performance and efficiency. This paper concentrates about the control algorithm for a six-phase induction motor with third harmonic current injection. The problem is that typically a seventh...... inverter branch and filter inductances is needed for stabilizing the midpoint potential of the series connected dc-capacitor link. A new control strategy that pre-calculates the allowed voltage ripple and controls the motor voltage accordingly (using two standard three phase inverter modules) is suggested...... satisfactory. A drawback is that the voltage ripple in the midpoint increases, if a third harmonic current is injected specially at low speed, which could demand a higher voltage rating of the capacitors. Another drawback is that the higher voltage ripple will stress the capacitors hence the lifetime may be...

    Full Text Available A method for the identification of the DC state space model parameters based on the minimization of the error function using the least squares method is described in this paper. The algorithm is practically applied in the laboratory environment on an industrial DC motor. The verification of the results was performed by comparing the characteristic signals of real and modeled systems. The results show that the quality of the identification is satisfactory.   Introduction The identification of system parameters is the first step in the analysis and synthesis of control systems. Identification Quality strongly impacts on the results of all other computations. In the theory of automatic control, many methods of identification are developed. Which method will be applied depends on the characteristics of the system. In this paper, we described an identification algorithm based on the least squares method. A practical test of this algorithm of estimation is done on a DC motor.   parameter estimation with the least squares method   A DC motor is a second-order system described with two differential equations: one which describes electrical and one which describes mechanical parts of the motor. The idea is to analyse the motor as two first-order systems. The main signals are responses of two first order sub-systems on appropriate inputs. Using a discrete state-space model of the motor and applying the least square method on the recorded signals, we get straightforward equations for the computation of all the necessary parameters: Rr,  Lr ,  Je ,  Fe ,  Kme and Kem (Eykhoff, Wilsoons, 1974.   Experimental results   The practical application was realized in the laboratory where a DC middle-power motor was used as a control object. It is coupled with a DC generator which serves as a load. Generation of the input signals and measure of the responses were performed with the acquisition system based on the appropriate acquisition card and the MATLAB

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Photovoltaic (PV) powered directly coupled electro-mechanical system has wide applications (e.g. PV powered cooling fans in green houses, PV water pumping system, solar vehicles). The objective of this work is to analyse the operation of directly PV powered DC PM (direct current permanent magnet) motor – propeller system for selection of motor parameters. The performance of such system mainly depends on the incident solar radiation, operating cell temperature, DC motor and propeller load parameters. It is observed that the operating points of the PV DC PM motor – propeller system matches very closely with the maximum power points (MPPs) of the PV array, if the DC PM motor – propeller parameters have been properly selected. It is found that for a specific application of such type of system, matching of torque–speed operating points with respect to the maximum power points of PV array are very important. It is ascertained through results that the DC PM motor's armature resistance, magnetic field constant, starting current to overcome the starting torque and torque coefficient are the main parameters. In designing a PV powered DC PM motor for a specific application, selection of these parameters are important for maximum utilization of the PV array output. The results of this system are useful for designing of directly PV powered DC PM motor's for aerodynamic applications. - Highlights: • We analyse the performance of directly PV powered DC PM motor – propeller system. • We examine PV electro-mechanical system for selection of DC motor parameters. • Matching of torque–speed curve to maximum power points of PV array is important

  20. Identification and adaptive neural network control of a DC motor system with dead-zone characteristics.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Peng, Jinzhu; Dubay, Rickey

    2011-10-01

    In this paper, an adaptive control approach based on the neural networks is presented to control a DC motor system with dead-zone characteristics (DZC), where two neural networks are proposed to formulate the traditional identification and control approaches. First, a Wiener-type neural network (WNN) is proposed to identify the motor DZC, which formulates the Wiener model with a linear dynamic block in cascade with a nonlinear static gain. Second, a feedforward neural network is proposed to formulate the traditional PID controller, termed as PID-type neural network (PIDNN), which is then used to control and compensate for the DZC. In this way, the DC motor system with DZC is identified by the WNN identifier, which provides model information to the PIDNN controller in order to make it adaptive. Back-propagation algorithms are used to train both neural networks. Also, stability and convergence analysis are conducted using the Lyapunov theorem. Finally, experiments on the DC motor system demonstrated accurate identification and good compensation for dead-zone with improved control performance over the conventional PID control.

    2010-08-01

    This paper shows how to use a DC motor and its PID controller, to behave analogously to a muscle. A model of the muscle that has been learned by a NNARX (Neural Network Auto Regressive eXogenous) structure is used. The PID parameters are tuned by an MLP Network with a special indirect online learning algorithm. The calculation of the learning algorithm is performed based on a mathematical equation of the DC motor or with a Neural Network identification of the motor. For each of the two algorithms, the output of the muscle model is used as a reference for the DC motor control loop. The results show that we succeeded in forcing the physical system to behave in the same way as the muscle model with acceptable margin of error. An implementation in the knees of a simulated biped robot is realized. Simulation compares articular trajectories with and without the muscle emulator and shows that with muscle emulator, articular trajectories become closer to the human being ones and that total power consumption is reduced.

    1992-12-01

    This study was designed to investigate the predictive value of the event-related potentials (ERPs) preceding the initiation of a difficult perceptual-memory task and to investigate whether these ERPs require a motor movement on the part of the subject for their occurrence. Across 4 conditions the DC-potential shifts were recorded from 23 right-handed subjects using DC amplifiers. Although the start of each trial began with a ready signal, the conditions differed in that the subjects initiated the task by a button press in 2 conditions and the computer initiated it in 2 others without a press. The results showed that, especially in the frontocentral electrode sites, the DC-potential shifts which began those trials ending in correct performance were more negative relative to those trials ending in an incorrect response. Those conditions which required the subjects to self-initiate the trial and those which were initiated by the computer showed similar results indicating that the negative DC-potential shifts preceding correct performance are neither produced by nor depend on a task initiating motor movement. The onset of the DC-potential shifts preceded task initiation by up to 4.1 sec indicating that they were more than the Bereitschaftspotential. PMID:1281084

    This paper presents some studies of the dynamic behaviour of a ZMF-500-50 type DC Motor-Flywheel-Generator (DC MFG) for fusion inductive load, using computer simulation. Two analysis methods are employed to study the characteristics of this nonlinear system. One deals with the relation between dynamic performances and system parameters by the root-locus technique, and the other with the algorithm of the computer closed-loop control for exciter regulation to create a long flattop pulsed current. Simulation results confirm that this special control algorithm for the nonlinear system is effective and may be easily implemented on a microcomputer

  4. Multilevel DC Link Inverter for Brushless Permanent Magnet Motors with Very Low Inductance

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Due to their long effective air gaps, permanent magnet motors tend to have low inductance. The use of ironless stator structure in present high power PM motors (several tens of kWs) reduces the inductance even further ( and lt; 100(micro)H). This low inductance imposes stringent current regulation demands for the inverter to obtain acceptable current ripple. An analysis of the current ripple for these low inductance brushless PM motors shows that a standard inverter with the most commonly used IGBT switching devices cannot meet the current regulation demands and will produce unacceptable current ripples due to the IGBT's limited switching frequency. This paper introduces a new multilevel dc link inverter, which can dramatically reduce the current ripple for brushless PM motor drives. The operating principle and design guidelines are included

    A control circuit is provided for a brushless three-phase dc motor which affords four quadrant control from a single command. The control circuit probes acceleration of the motor in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions and braking and generation in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions. In addition to turning on individual transistors of the transistor pairs connected to the phase windings of the motor for 120 deg periods while the other transistor of that pair is off, the control circuit also provides, in a future mode of operation, turning the two transistors of each pair on and off alternately at a phase modulation frequency during such a 120 deg period. A feedback signal is derived which is proportional to the motor current and which has a polarity consistent with the command signal, such that negative feedback results.

    Generally, the digital controller has many advantages such as high precision, robustness to electrical noise, capability of flexible programming and fast response to the load variation. In this study, we have established proper mathematical equivalent model of brushless DC (BLDC) motor and estimated the motor parameter by means of the back-emf measurement as being the step input to the controlled target BLDC motor. And the validity of proposed estimation method is confirmed by the test result of step response. As well, we have designed the reasonable digital controller as a consequence of the root locus method which is obtained from the open-loop transfer function of BLDC motor with hall sensor, and the determination of control gain for variable speed control. Here, revised Ziegler-Nichols tuning method is applied for the proper digital gain establishment, and the system stability is verified by the frequency domain analysis with Bode-plot and experimentation.

    2006-06-01

    This paper presents a novel configuration of a brushless DC (BLDC) motor with an integrated planetary gear train, which provides further functional and structural integrations to overcome inherent drawbacks of traditional designs. The effects of gear teeth on the magnetic field and performance of the BLDC motor are investigated. Two standard gear profile systems integrated on the stator with feasible numbers of gear teeth are introduced to reduce the cogging torque. An equivalent magnetic circuit model and an air-gap permeance model are applied to analytically analyze the magnetic field, while the validity is verified by 2-D finite-element method (FEM). Furthermore, the motor performance is discussed and compared with an existing design. The results show that the present design has the characteristics of lower cogging torque and torque ripple than the conventional design, which is of benefit to the widely applications on accurate motion and position control for BLDC motors.

  8. A low-cost viscometer based on a permanent magnet dc motor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper proposes a pragmatic approach to, and a feasibility study of, a very low cost instrument for on-line and in situ viscosity measurement for engineering applications. It is a simple rotational instrument based on the mixer technique. It utilizes a permanent magnet dc (PMDC) motor which drives a propeller immersed in the test fluid. The viscosity is derived from the motor current when the motor is connected to a fixed supply voltage. The theory which relates PMDC motor current to the resistance to the rotational movement of a body due to the viscosity of the liquid under the test is developed. It is believed that the system provides the basis for a new generation of inexpensive viscometers for process and storage environments. (paper)

    Brushless direct current (BLDC) motor is widely used in small and medium sized electric vehicles as it exhibit highest specific power and thermal efficiency as compared to the induction motor. Permanent magnets BLDC rotor create a constant magnetic flux, which limit the motor top speed. As the back electromotive force (EMF) voltage increases proportionally with motor rotational speed and it approaches the amplitude of the input voltage, the phase current amplitude will reach zero. By advancing the phase current, it is possible to extend the maximum speed of the BLDC motor beyond the rated top speed. This will allow smaller BLDC motor to be used in small electric vehicles (EV) and in larger applications will allow the use of BLDC motor without the use of multispeed transmission unit for high speed operation. However, increasing the speed of BLDC will affect the torque speed response. The torque output will decrease as speed increases. Adjusting the phase angle will affect the speed of the motor as each coil is energized earlier than the corresponding rise in the back emf of the coil. This paper discusses the phase advance strategy of Brushless DC motor by phase angle manipulation approaches using external hall sensors. Tests have been performed at different phase advance angles in advance and retard positions for different voltage levels applied. The objective is to create the external hall sensor system to commutate the BLDC motor, to establish the phase advance of the BLDC by varying the phase angle through external hall sensor manipulation, observe the respond of the motor while applying the phase advance by hall sensor adjustment.

    Full Text Available The modeling of a process or a plant is vital for the design of its control system, since it allows predicting its dynamic and behavior under different circumstances, inputs, disturbances and noise. The main objective of this work is to identify which model is best for a permanent magnet brushless DC specific motor. For this, the mathematical model of a DC motor brushless PW16D, manufactured by Golden Motor, is presented and compared with its black box model; both are derived from experimental data. These data, the average applied voltage and the angular velocity, are acquired by a data acquisition card and imported to the computer. The constants of the mathematical model are estimated by a curve fitting algorithm based on non-linear least squares and pattern search using computational tool. To estimate the mathematical model constants by non-linear least square and search pattern, a goodness of fit of 84.88% and 80.48% respectively was obtained. The goodness of fit obtained by the black box model was 87.72%. The mathematical model presented slightly lower goodness of fit, but allowed to analyze the behavior of variables of interest such as the power consumption and the torque applied to the motor. Because of this, it is concluded that the mathematical model obtained by experimental data of the brushless motor PW16D, is better than its black box model.

Beside motor driver, this instrument comprise of a motor support box, a glass support equipped with a heater, as well as a backer glass contained liquid and a magnetic capsule as a stirrer. To observe the characteristic of motor and the optimum input voltage as well as the characteristic of its heating system, the instrument was tested by measuring rotational speed of the motor at various input voltage and also measuring temperature on the glass support as well as on the liquid at various temperature setting. Based on the functional test results it was observed that the rotational speed of motor is linearly increased by increasing the input voltage and the magnetic stirrer has optimum input voltage of 1,5 Volt which produce rotational speed of about 1000 rpm.

    Full Text Available A brushless DC(BLDC motor with the characteristics of high speed and high power density has been more widely used in industrial area. The BLDC motor requires the position and speed sensors for control. However the position sensors are undesirable from standpoints of size, cost, maintenance and reliability. There are some different ways that can solve this problem, depending on the flux distribution. This paper describes a control system of sensorless BLDC motor. The back-EMF is adopted to detect the rotor position. The back-EMF is very small in the motor starting process, and it is difficult to obtain rotor position efficiently. A re-setting method of the rotor is proposed in the paper, and current closed loop is used for high-speed and safety in the motor starting process. A good speed and current double closed loops system is designed. The speed and current regulators are implemented by a digital signal processor(DSP. A simple algorithm is used to calculate motor speed indirectly by the software, which simplifies the system hardware structure. The hardware structure and software design of sensorless BLDC motor control system are described in details. The simulation and experimental results have shown the validity of the sensorless control system and the accuracy of the detective position signal obtained.

    This thesis examines the use of a linear DC motor as a proof mass actuator for the control of large space structures. A model for the actuator, including the current and force compensation used, is derived. Because of the force compensation, the actuator is unstable when placed on a structure. Relative position feedback is used for actuator stabilization. This method of compensation couples the actuator to the mast in a feedback configuration. Three compensator designs are prop...

    Open-loop operation mode is often used to control the Brushless DC Motors (BLDCMs) without rotor position sensors when the back electromotive force (EMF) is too weak due to the very low rotor velocity. The rotor position information is not necessary in this mode and the stator windings are supplied with voltages under a certain ratio of the amplitude to the frequency. However, the rotor synchronization will be destroyed once if the commutation instant is inappropriate. In order to improve the...

    Using the integrator backstepping approach, we develop a full state feedback, adaptive position tracking controller for a brushless DC (BLDC) motor turning a robotic load. The proposed controller ensures global asymptotic tracking for the rotor position and velocity despite the parametric uncertainties throughout the entire electromechanical system.

    2004-07-01

    This paper introduces a theory for a space vector modulation of a three-phase four-quadrant PWM rectifier (FQR). The presented vector modulation method is simple to realize with a microcontroller and it replaces the conventional modulation methods based on the analog technology. The FQR may be used to supply directly a dc load, e.g. a dc machine. The vector modulated FQR is tested in simulations supplying a 4.5 kW dc motor. The simulations show the benefits of the vector modulated FQR against thyristor converters: the supply currents are sinusoidal and the displacement power factor of the supply can be controlled. Furthermore the load current is smooth. (author)

    Interleaved dual boost converter is capable of extracting more amount of power from the photovoltaic source than the conventional boost converter. Power extraction capabilities of the conventional boost and interleaved dual boost converters from the photovoltaic array are verified through experimental studies. As an application the effectiveness of this interleaved dual boost converter for PV supplied separately excited DC motor is studied through simulation. Extensive studies are made by formulating the mathematical models for photovoltaic source, interleaved dual boost converter, DC motor and load. Steady-state performance of the motor coupled to centrifugal pump load is analyzed for maximum power, gross mechanical energy operations. From the simulation studies, it is found that the motor performance is improved with gross mechanical energy output operation as compared to maximum power operation of solar cell array. Furthermore, the use of interleaved dual boost converter reduces the ripple content both in the source and load waveforms, thus resulting in reduced filtering requirements and improved photovoltaic array performance.

  18. NRC Information No. 88-72: Inadequacies in the design of dc motor-operated valves

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    On July 1, 1988, a high pressure coolant injection (HPCI) steam admission valve failed to open during a post-maintenance test at the Brunswick nuclear power plant, Unit 1. The same valve had failed in December 1987 and on May 28, 1988. The licensee, Carolina Power and Light Company, established a team to investigate the cause of failure, and the team identified the most probable cause as a dc motor failure due to a shunt-winding to series-winding short circuit. The team believed that this condition was precipitated by thermal binding of the valve internals. The previous failure in May was also diagnosed as having been caused by thermal binding. As a result of these failures, the licensee reviewed the design of the dc motor-operated valves for both the HPCI and the reactor core isolation cooling (RCIC) systems. This review identified a number of significant design deficiencies going well beyond the problems with thermal binding. The deficiencies constitute a potential common cause failure mechanism for safety system valves. Unit 1 was shut down on July 14, 1988 to replace the failed HPCI valve motor and to implement design modifications to other motor-operated valves

    2004-07-01

    In this paper, a new robust control method and its application to a photovoltaic (PV) supplied, separately excited DC motor loaded with a constant torque is discussed. The robust controller is designed against the load torque changes by using the first and second ordered derivatives of the universal learning networks (ULNs). These derivatives are calculated using the forward propagation algorithm, which is considered as an extended version of real time recurrent learning (RTRL). In this application, two ULNs are used: The first is the ULN identifier trained offline to emulate the dynamic performance of the DC motor system. The second is the ULN controller, which is trained online not only to make the motor speed follow a selected reference signal, but also to make the overall system operate at the maximum power point of the PV source. To investigate the effectiveness of the proposed robust control method, the simulation is carried out at four different values of the robustness coefficient {gamma} in two different stages: The training stage, in which the simulation is done for a constant load torque. And the control stage, in which the controller performance is obtained when the load torque is changed. The simulation results showed that the robustness of the control system is improved although the motor load torque at the control stage is different from that at the training stage. (author)

    Cathey, J. J.; Reesor, D. B.; Weimer, J. A.

    Feasibility and concept of designing a high-speed, permanent magnet, brushless dc motor aircraft fuel pump drive using a cycloconverter link is examined. Analytical methods are developed to model the behavior of a three-phase permanent magnetic machine when operated as a self-synchronous motor supplied from a polyphase, variable voltage, variable frequency source through a midpoint cycloconverter link under circulating current free mode of control. A hybrid combination of sinusoidal and dc steady-state analysis methods is utilized to obtain a suitable equivalent circuit of the motor. Study of the motor model is made to establish the nature of the no load MMF angle as a function of current to give a minimum value while assuring proper thyristor commutation. Then, a closed loop control system with an outer loop on speed and an inner loop on current is postulated wherein a proportional plus integral controller is placed in the forward path to assure minimum speed error. A numerical study of performance is presented for speed runup and rundown conditions.

    Full Text Available In this paper, Single-Ended Primary Inductor Converter (SEPIC fed DC motor is proposed. Soft-switching technique such as Zero-Voltage-Switching (ZVS and Zero-Current-Switching (ZCS operation plays a vital role in high voltage applications. Zero-Current-Switching (ZCS operation achieved due to resonance between the resonant inductor and the capacitor by using output diode and its reverse-recovery loss is subsequently reduced. Zero-Voltage-Switching (ZVS operation is achieved by using coupled inductor and auxiliary inductor. The model has been simulated through MATLAB/SIMULINK using Diode Bridge, SEPIC topology and closed loop DC motor load and it is modeled analytically. The proposed system is modeled with input side Diode Bridge Rectifier and SEPIC Topology with Proportional Integral (PI controller. The soft switching scheme for the proposed topology is developed with closed loop motor load. The motor voltage is achieved twice the rated voltage. The results are generated in MATLAB/SIMULINK and are shown.

  2. Primary control of a Mach scale swashplateless rotor using brushless DC motor actuated trailing edge flaps

    Science.gov (United States)

    Saxena, Anand

    The focus of this research was to demonstrate a four blade rotor trim in forward flight using integrated trailing edge flaps instead of using a swashplate controls. A compact brushless DC motor was evaluated as an on-blade actuator, with the possibility of achieving large trailing edge flap amplitudes. A control strategy to actuate the trailing edge flap at desired frequency and amplitude was developed and large trailing edge flap amplitudes from the motor (instead of rotational motion) were obtained. Once the actuator was tested on the bench-top, a lightweight mechanism was designed to incorporate the motor in the blade and actuate the trailing edge flaps. A six feet diameter, four bladed composite rotor with motor-flap system integrated into the NACA 0012 airfoil section was fabricated. Systematic testing was carried out for a range of load conditions, first in the vacuum chamber followed by hover tests. Large trailing edge flap deflections were observed during the hover testing, and a peak to peak trailing edge flap amplitude of 18 degree was achieved at 2000 rotor RPM with hover tip Mach number of 0.628. A closed loop controller was designed to demonstrate trailing edge flap mean position and the peak to peak amplitude control. Further, a soft pitch link was designed and fabricated, to replace the stiff pitch link and thereby reduce the torsional stiffness of the blade to 2/rev. This soft pitch link allowed for blade root pitch motion in response to the trailing edge flap inputs. Blade pitch response due to both steady as well as sinusoidal flap deflections were demonstrated. Finally, tests were performed in Glenn L. Martin wind tunnel using a model rotor rig to assess the performance of motor-flap system in forward flight. A swashplateless trim using brushless DC motor actuated trailing edge flaps was achieved for a rotor operating at 1200 RPM and an advance ratio of 0.28. Also, preliminary exploration was carried out to test the scalability of the motor

    A real-time control architecture is developed for time-varying nonlinear brushless dc motors operating in a high performance drives environment. The developed control architecture possesses the capabilities of simultaneous on-line identification and control. The dynamics of the motor are modeled on-line and controlled using an artificial neural network, as the system runs. The control architecture combines the experience and dependability of adaptive tracking systems with potential and promise of the neural computing technology. The sensitivity of real-time controller to parametric changes that occur during training is investigated. Such changes are usually manifested by rapid changes in the load of the brushless motor drives. This sudden change in the external load is simulated for the sigmoidal and sinusoidal reference tracks. The ability of the neuro-controller to maintain reasonable tracking accuracy in the presence of external noise is also verified for a number of desired reference trajectories.

    Since the rare metal magnets show the high saturation flux density, the ferrite magnets of the magnetic field poles of PM (permanent magnet) motors have been substituted for them in recent years. The feature of the rare metal magnet realize small size or high power BLM (brushless dc motors). However, the ordinary magnetic field poles of the PM motors generate higher harmonic flux and cause torque ripple. They are usually removed by short pitch winding, skew slot method and so on. But these methods show a drawback to lower efficiency. This problem is important especially for high power BLM. Recently new methods have been proposed to realize zero torque ripple and high efficiency drive at the same time. The methods optimize the reference current waveform which is calculated by motor ENE (electromotive force) in advance, and current are controlled to follow up the optimized one. However, the one method assumes try and error. The other one doesn`t prove that it realizes maximum efficiency and zero torque ripple drive at the same time. And they have much room to improvement to apply to BLM. This paper proposes the simultaneous equations which give the accurate relation among instantaneous torque, EW and current, and proposes a new index CSR which evaluates the relation between copper loss and current waveform. Then the optimized current waveform to drive BLM with zero torque ripple and maximum efficiency is calculated by using new equations and CSR. For this waveform includes triplex harmonic order, normal three phase full bridge inverter can`t be used. This paper proposes four arm full bridge inverter which can apply triplex order current to BLM. Experimental result proves this method is available. 9 refs., 11 figs., 2 tabs.

    2001-10-29

    The brushless dc motor (BDCM) has high-power density and efficiency relative to other motor types. These properties make the BDCM well suited for applications in electric vehicles provided a method can be developed for driving the motor over the 4 to 6:1 constant power speed range (CPSR) required by such applications. The present state of the art for constant power operation of the BDCM is conventional phase advance (CPA) [1]. In this paper, we identify key limitations of CPA. It is shown that the CPA has effective control over the developed power but that the current magnitude is relatively insensitive to power output and is inversely proportional to motor inductance. If the motor inductance is low, then the rms current at rated power and high speed may be several times larger than the current rating. The inductance required to maintain rms current within rating is derived analytically and is found to be large relative to that of BDCM designs using high-strength rare earth magnets. Th us, the CPA requires a BDCM with a large equivalent inductance.

  10. A novel position-sensorless control method for brushless DC motors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper presents the design and implementation of a high performance position-sensorless control scheme for the extensively used brushless DC (BLDC) motors. In the proposed method, with proper PWM strategy, instead of detecting the zero-crossing point (ZCP) of the nonexcited motor back electromagnetic force (EMF) or the average motor terminal to neutral voltage, the true zero-crossing points of back EMF are extracted directly from the difference of the specific average line-to-line voltages with simple RC circuits and comparators. In contrast to conventional methods, the neutral voltage is not needed and the diode freewheeling currents in the nonconducted phase are eliminated completely; therefore, the commutation signals are more accurate and insensitive to the common-mode noise. Moreover, 100% pulse-width-modulation (PWM) duty ratio control of BLDC motors is provided with the presented method. As a result, the proposed method makes it possible to achieve good motor performance over a wide speed range and to simplify the starting procedure. The detailed circuit model is analyzed and some experimental results obtained from a sensorless prototype are shown to verify the analysis and confirm the validity of the proposed method.

    A FY 2001 Center Director's Discretionary Fund task to develop a test platform for the development, implementation. and evaluation of adaptive and other advanced control techniques for brushless DC (BLDC) motor-driven mechanisms is described. Important applications for BLDC motor-driven mechanisms are the translation of specimens in microgravity experiments and electromechanical actuation of nozzle and fuel valves in propulsion systems. Motor-driven aerocontrol surfaces are also being utilized in developmental X vehicles. The experimental test platform employs a linear translation stage that is mounted vertically and driven by a BLDC motor. Control approaches are implemented on a digital signal processor-based controller for real-time, closed-loop control of the stage carriage position. The goal of the effort is to explore the application of advanced control approaches that can enhance the performance of a motor-driven actuator over the performance obtained using linear control approaches with fixed gains. Adaptive controllers utilizing an exact model knowledge controller and a self-tuning controller are implemented and the control system performance is illustrated through the presentation of experimental results.

This board will be used to communicate with the central trajectory generator, manage low level control tasks and motor current feeding. In this context, we present a solution for a highly compact electronic. This electronic is composed of two layers. The first is the power stage that can drive simultaneously two brushless motors. The second one consists of a fast microcontroller and deals with different control tasks: communication, acquisition of the hall sensor signals, commutation of the motors phases, and performing position and current regulation. A set of diagnostic functions are also implemented to detect failure in the motors or the sensors, and to sense abnormal load change that may be the result of two robots colliding.

    The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problem of high altitude platform systems (HAPS) is investigated in this paper. A physical model for electromagnetic interferences (EMI) of electromagnetic radiation of spark discharge in DC electric motor is proposed. Based on this model, EMI frequency points has been estimated by approximative equation for the given structure and size of a motor, and EMI frequency points, peak values that received by the ports of antennas and far-field pattern have been calculated. The estimated results are consistent with the calculated ones. These frequency bands and spatial directions with max EMI should be avoided in the valid information when the HAPS system is being designed. Two methods are taken to shield electromagnetic radiation, either to mount a metal plate near the DC electric motor (EMI source), or to mount a perfect conductor board near the antenna array (sensitive element), are valid to shield electromagnetic radiation, but to mount a metal plate near the EMI source is more effective.

    The torque, to some extent, is an important performance index of electric motors. In many permanent magnet DC motors, the armature core is slotted with the winding embedded into the slots. What kind of force occurs on the armature teeth (or slot) and hence forms die torque is an interesting problem. hi the past some relevant researches were reported, which concluded that all torque came from the force generated in the flanks of the armature teeth and the force on the teeth surface facing the field magnet contributed nothing to the output torque. The objective of this paper is to investigate the overall electromagnetic force distribution in the armature teeth of a permanent magnet DC motor. An U-shaped core is employed as an analytical model which covers only one tooth pitch of the slotted an-nature, and the derivation of the force on the surfaces of the U-shaped core is obtained by means of the Maxwell stress method. Experimental results show that both tangential force on the teeth surface facing the field magnet and normal force in the flanks of the teeth contribute to the motion of a rotor. The analytical method and force expressions are verified by the experimental results. 14 refs., 11 figs.

And it is observed that comparatively better results are obtained by optimization using Simulated Annealing offering better steady state response.

  18. Extended Constant Power Speed Range of the Brushless DC Motor Through Dual Mode Inverter Control

    2000-06-23

    The trapezoidal back electromotive force (emf) brushless direct current (dc) motor (BDCM) with surface-mounted magnets has high-power density and efficiency especially when rare-earth magnet materials are used. Traction applications, such as electric vehicles, could benefit significantly from the use of such motors. Unfortunately, a practical means for driving the motor over a constant power speed ratio (CPSR) of 5:1 or more has not yet been developed. A key feature of these motors is that they have low internal inductance. The phase advance method is effective in controlling the motor power over such a speed range, but the current at high speed may be several times greater than that required at the base speed. The increase in current during high-speed operation is due to the low motor inductance and the action of the bypass diodes of the inverter. The use of such a control would require increased current rating of the inverter semiconductors and additional cooling for the inverter, where the conduction losses increase proportionally with current, and especially for the motor, where the losses increase with the square of the current. The high current problems of phase advance can be mitigated by adding series inductance; however, this reduces power density, requires significant increase in supply voltage, and leaves the CPSR performance of the system highly sensitive to variations in the available voltage. A new inverter topology and control scheme has been developed that can drive low-inductance BDCMs over the CPSR that would be required in electric vehicle applications. This new controller is called the dual-mode inverter control (DMIC). It is shown that the BDCM has an infinite CPSR when it is driven by the DMIC.

  19. Design of DC Motor Driver as a Control System Actuator for Electron Source in Electron Beam Machine

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A DC motor driver has been contracted using chopper DC circuit. The DC motor driver consists of an inverting amplifier, a comparator, and a DC chopper unit. The DC chopper circuit is based on H hybrid circuit, so that the polarization and angular velocity of DC motor can be regulated similar with the polarization and value of input signal. The result showed, that the DC motor driver circuit can be used as actuator on the electron source of electron beam machine. The maximum (duty cycle value = 1/2) angular velocity has same value for 10-1 - 10-2 Hertz oscillator frequency range. The increase of angular velocity will be proportional to the oscillator frequency at the constant duty cycle. If this characteristic is related with respond time of the control system, so the control system respond time is dependence on oscillator frequency being used. The use of control system with PC can be realized, because the input signal use low voltage, where the measurement shows that it has 3 - 10 Volt voltage range. (author)

    Full Text Available For electrical drives good dynamic performance is mandatory so as to respond to the changes in command speed and torques, so various speed control techniques are being used for real time applications. The speed of a dc motor can be controlled using various controllers like PI- Controller, Artificial Neural Network (ANNcontroller. ANN theory is recently getting increasing emphasis in process control applications. The paper describes application of ANN in a speed control system that uses a phase-controlled bridge converter and aseparately excited DC machine. The ANN controller for current and speed loops are implemented in MATLAB/SIMULINK, replacing the conventional Proportional-Integral (PI control method. The simulationstudy indicates the superiority of artificial neural network control over the conventional control methods. This control seems to have a lot of promise in the applications of power electronics.

  2. Efficiency consideration of DC link soft-switching inverters for motor drive applications

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1994-12-31

    This paper critically evaluates efficiency of soft switching inverters including an actively clamped resonant dc link inverter and a clamped-mode resonant pole inverter. An analytical approach to evaluating efficiency of the clamped-mode soft switching inverter has been developed. The evaluation results are compared with that of the standard pulse-width-modulation (PWM) inverter. A 50-kW induction motor is used as the variable load, and the inverter efficiency is evaluated under different speed and torque conditions. The clamped-mode soft-switching inverter, although eliminating the switching loss, shows poor efficiency over the entire load range. Under low load conditions, the efficiency profile is even worse. The actively clamped resonant dc link inverter shows highest efficiency over the entire speed and torque range. However, its energy saving over the standard PWM inverter is marginal under full load or high speed conditions.

    The author found and put forward the new electromechanical concept of the DC rotating magnetic field in the New DCM research work. The DC rotating magnetic field is produced by the DC armature winding magnetic potential when commutation controller controls the conducting state and order of power switches in the electronic commutator. The change of the instantaneous current in the AC armature winding along the circumference produces an AC rotating magnetic field. Both DC and AC magnetic potential are produced by the armature winding circuit and are no relationship with the rotor mechanical relative motion. From the rotor? Perspective there is no difference between the armature winding magnetic potential produced by the DC winding current and the AC winding current. So the DC rotating magnetic field combined with different rotor structure can constitute the new concepts of the DC synchronous motor and the DC asynchronous motor, which are similar with the concepts of the AC synchronous motor and the AC asynchronous motor.

    Maetani, Tatsuo; Isomura, Yoshinori; Komiyama, Hiroshi; Morimoto, Shigeo

    This paper describes the life of noise of bearing electro-erosion in the shaft voltage of brushless DC motors. We confirmed that shaft voltage is suppressed to equal to or less than the dielectric breakdown voltage of bearing lubricant in the insulated rotor proposed for suppression of shaft voltage. However, since bearing electro-erosion appears over time along with the deterioration of noise performance, the threshold of the shaft voltage to secure noise performance over long periods of time is necessary. Therefore, the threshold of the shaft voltage that influences the life of noise was obtained in acceleration tests.

    1989-01-01

    Consideration is given to a decentralized control design for vibration suppression in the COFS-I Mast using linear dc motors for actuators. The decentralized control design is based results from power systems using root locus techniques that are not well known. The approach is effective because the loop gain is low due to low actuator authority. The frequency-dependent nonlinearities of the actuator are taken into account. Because of the tendency of the transients to saturate the the stroke length of the actuator, its effectiveness is limited.

    In respect of the construction of motor as the driving source of electric vehicle, there are two means as inverter-driving induction motors and DC brushless motors. Both of said means have the merits and demerits respectively as DC brushless motor has the excellent driving efficiency in low speed region and the advantage to deal with the trouble of inverter by the brake of power generation while the problems thereof are the filed-weakening control like induction motors is difficult in the practical use and a position sensor is necessary. In this paper, the electric vehicle are used as the object of the research for studying the construction and controlling method of brushless motor without position sensor, the control of the constant output in high speed region, and the starting as well as braking methods of the motor. Using current-source PWM inverter is the characteristic of this means. It is indicated by the comparative investigation with respect to the operating characteristics between the present means and the system using voltage-source inverter to the same synchronous machine that for the latter system the filter at the output side is indispensable and the values of the operating characteristics, efficiency, etc., in the brushless control are lower than those of the present means. 7 refs., 9 figs., 1 tab.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tsai, Ching-Chih; Chan, Cheng-Kain; Li, Yi Yu

    2012-01-01

    This article presents an adaptive H ∞ nonlinear velocity control for a linear DC brushless motor. A simplified model of this motor with friction is briefly recalled. The friction dynamics is described by the Lu Gre model and the online tuning radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) is used to parameterise the nonlinear friction function and un-modelled errors. An adaptive nonlinear H ∞ control method is then proposed to achieve velocity tracking, by assuming that the upper bounds of the ripple force, the changeable load and the nonlinear friction can be learned by the RBFNN. The closed-loop system is proven to be uniformly bounded using the Lyapunov stability theory. The feasibility and the efficacy of the proposed control are exemplified by conducting two velocity tracking experiments.

    The VVVF (Variable Voltage Variable Frequency) inverter systems for motor drive in DC electric cars where a high breakdown voltage IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) (2000 V, 400 A) was applied was developed. It consisted of the inverter unit, main electric motor, filter reactor, high-speed circuit breaker, isolator, etc. and had the following features. By individually controlling the torque of each electric motor, racing gliding control and axial weight move compensation control were executed for each electric motor to improve acceleration, etc. A high breakdown voltage IGBT achieving a high-frequency switching was applied and a 3-level inverter system was adopted, thus reducing voltage high harmonics and reducing noise. An electromagnetic operation system was adopted for the high-speed circuit breaker/contactor for achieving airless system, thus eliminating the need for maintenance. The circuit was simplified as compared with GTO by applying a high breakdown voltage IGBT and inverter efficiency was improved. The 3-level inverter system enable 2,000 V IGBT to be applied. The performance of each equipment was confirmed by the inertial load testing instrument. 4 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.

    Full Text Available A position control of DC motor servo drive based on the Sliding Mode (SM approach is presented. The modeling and analysis of the servo DC motor are obtained. The Sliding Mode Controller (SMC design changes such that its performance is substantially improved. To improve the controller performance in steady stat (zero error the Integral Sliding Mode Controller (ISMC is used. Since the main drawback of SMC is a phenomenon, the so-called chattering, resulting from discontinuous controllers. A ISMC with switched gains is used for chattering reduction and controller robustness. For comparison, the proposed ISM with switched gains is compared with that of a PID controller. Experiments and simulations have been carried out in order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme. The proposed controller offers very good tracking; it is highly robust, reaches the final position very fast. Furthermore the application of the SM ensures reduction of the system order by one. Also, quick recovery from matched disturbance in addition to good tracking ability. Moreover, this scheme is robust against the parameters variations and eliminate the influence of modeling.

Approximation rules based on plotting the output of the system or on computer simulation were used to determine the parameters of these controllers. This study was done to develop mathematical expressions to calculate the parameters of these controllers. Output time functions of the system and there derivatives were used to obtain mathematical relationships relating directly the motor parameters and the controller parameters. These relationships were used in tuning process of the cascade system. The dynamic performances of the system were examined in single loop form and in closed loop form for a step change in control variable (the input voltage as well as for step change in disturbance (mechanical load. The performances of current closed loop system and the speed closed loop were acceptable. The steady state error was zero and the maximum overshoot was less than 20%. The developed relationships can be used in design and analysis of cascade DC drive systems and cascade AC drive systems.

In this paper, a new type dc surface motor using window shaped coils (DSM) is proposed by the authors. And the thrust equations of the DSM is shown following the exciting method of the window shaped coils. The driving characteristics of the DSM are summarized as follows: 1. The maximum flux density of the air gap is calculated at 0.35 teslas when the exciting current is 1.8 amperes. The flux density achieves only 20 % conpered with maximum flux density (1.8 teslas) of the yokes(SS41). 2. The thrust constant of the x-direction and y-direction are 2.93, 2.70 N/A respectively, so these difference is within only 8 %. And the maximum static thrust is over 5 newtons when the exciting current was 1.8 amperes. 3. It is recognized that the positioning control accuracy is good within 7.5 % when the DSM is controlled by PD-control method. 11 refs., 10 figs., 2 tabs.

    Most solar thermal hot water heating systems utilize a pump for circulation of the working fluid. An elegant approach to powering the pump is via solar energy. A ''solar pump'' employs a photovoltaic module, electric motor, and pump to collect and convert solar energy to circulate the working fluid. This article presents an experimental investigation of a new integrated solar pump design that employs the stator of a brushless DC motor and a magnetically coupled pump that has no dynamic seal. This design significantly reduces total volume and mass, and eliminates redundant components. The integrated design meets a hydraulic load of 1.7 bar and 1.4 litres per minute, equal to 4.0 watts, at a rotational speed of 500 revolutions per minute. The brushless DC motor and positive displacement pump achieve efficiencies of 62% and 52%, respectively, resulting in an electric to hydraulic efficiency of 32%. Thus, a readily available photovoltaic module rated 15 watts output is suitable to power the system. A variety of design variations were tested to determine the impact of the armature winding, pump size, pulse width modulation frequency, seal can material, etcetera. The physical and magnetic design was found to dominate efficiency. The efficiency characteristics of a photovoltaic module are such that over-sizing is wasteful. The integrated design presents a robust, efficient package for use as a solar pump. Although focus has been placed on application to a solar thermal collector system, variations of the design are suitable for a wide variety of applications such as remote location water pumping.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Problem statement: This study presents the design and simulation of a soft switched boost converter for a switched reluctance motor with a closed loop controller. A soft switching scheme is proposed in the converter with minimum components, which reduces the switching loss and stress across the switch so that the harmonic generation is reduced in the output. The switch used in this converter switched ON at zero current and switched OFF at zero voltage. Approach: Most of the research was done on the power converter circuit of the SRM to control the speed. But in the proposed system a soft switched boost converter was designed to regulate the input voltage to SRM for any line variations and a power converter is used to control the speed of SRM. The PI controller was used as closed loop controllers, which improves the speed control of the switched reluctance motor for any load and regulates the input voltage to SRM for any line variations. The duty cycle of the switch is controlled by PI controller using PWM technique. A 500W/50KHz PWM based soft switched boost converter was designed and simulated for 6/4 pole 3 phase SRM with variable loads. The results were simulated using MATLAB SIMULINK. Results: The output of the soft switched dc converter gives a constant output voltage for any line variations, so that the input voltage to SRM is constant. The output speed of the SRM is controlled using PI controller and rotor current. Conclusion: The soft switched dc converter regulates the input supply and a power converter control the speed of Switched reluctance motor simultaneously.

    2000-04-01

    In this paper, a high-performance controller with simultaneous online identification and control is designed for brushless dc motor drives. The dynamics of the motor/load are modeled online, and controlled using two different neural network based identification and control schemes, as the system is in operation. In the first scheme, an attempt is made to control the rotor angular speed, utilizing a single three-hidden-layer network. The second scheme attempts to control the stator currents, using a predetermined control law as a function of the estimated states. This schemes incorporates three multilayered feedforward neural networks that are online trained, using the Levenburg-Marquadt training algorithm. The control of the direct and quadrature components of the stator current successfully tracked a wide variety of trajectories after relatively short online training periods. The control strategy adapts to the uncertainties of the motor/load dynamics and, in addition, learns their inherent nonlinearities. Simulation results illustrated that a neurocontroller used in conjunction with adaptive control schemes can result in a flexible control device which may be utilized in a wide range of environments.

    In this article, we present a high-order sliding mode controller of a DC motor drive connected to a multi-cellular converter. More specifically, we design a second-order (super-twisting) control algorithm for the speed regulation of a DC motor. For this, a switching control for the multi-cellular converter is derived in order to supply the correct reference value for the speed regulation. A practical implementation of the controller is realised using a laboratory set-up. The performance and the validity of the controller are shown experimentally.

  15. Algorithm of brush short-circuit coefficients of DC machines for extremely low speed drives%极低速驱动用直流电机电刷短路系数的算法

    张琪; 谢国栋; 黄苏融

    2008-01-01

    When a direct-current (DC) machine runs at extremely low speed or standstill, the reduction in the armature resistance and the armature flux linkage due to the short circuited coils by the brushes on the commutator should not be neglected. Taking this reduction effect into account, the average values of the reduction coefficients relate to the machine parameters in complicated forms. In this paper, an effective algorithm for the precise computation of the average values of these reduction coefficients is proposed. Furthermore, in the algorithm, the effect of the insulation thickness between the commutator segments and the multiplicity of the wave winding are considered for the first time. The proposed algorithm can also be accommodated into the computer-aided design (CAD) of a DC machine, which normally runs at extremely low speed or standstill.

  16. Brush-Wheel Samplers for Planetary Exploration

    2003-01-01

    A report proposes brush-wheel mechanisms for acquiring samples of soils from remote planets. In simplest terms, such a mechanism would contain brush wheels that would be counter-rotated at relatively high speed. The mechanism would be lowered to the ground from a spacecraft or other exploratory vehicle. Upon contact with the ground, the counter-rotating brush wheels would kick soil up into a collection chamber. Thus, in form and function, the mechanism would partly resemble traditional street and carpet sweepers. The main advantage of using of brush wheels (in contradistinction to cutting wheels or other, more complex mechanisms) is that upon encountering soil harder than expected, the brushes could simply deflect and the motor(s) could continue to turn. That is, sufficiently flexible brushes would afford resistance to jamming and to overloading of the motors used to rotate the brushes, and so the motors could be made correspondingly lighter and less power hungry. Of course, one could select the brush stiffnesses and motor torques and speeds for greatest effectiveness in sampling soil of a specific anticipated degree of hardness.

  17. A DC-Voltage-Balancing Circuit for a Five-Level Diode-Clamped PWM Inverter Intended for Motor Drives

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hasegawa, Kazunori; Akagi, Hirofumi

    This paper proposes a new dc-voltage-balancing circuit for a five-level diode-clamped inverter intended for a medium-voltage motor drive. This circuit consists of two unidirectional choppers and a single coupled inductor with two galvanically-isolated windings. The dc magnetic fluxes in the magnetic core, which are generated by the two windings, cancel out each other. Therefore, the inductor does not generate any dc-magnetic flux in the magnetic core. This makes the inductor compact by a factor of six compared to previously used balancing circuits containing two non-coupled inductors. Experimental results obtained from a 200-V 5.5-kW downscaled model verify that the dc mean voltages of the four split dc capacitors are balanced well under all operating conditions.

    Full Text Available In two recent decades, fuzzy controllers have been used in controlling different systems successfully. In this article, a new method is given for controlling of permanent magnetic DC motor connected to unbalanced load. Imbalance of load leads to machine vibrations, fluctuation of power, making exhaustion in machine shaft, and equipment depreciation. In this article neuro-fuzzy controllers are used for controlling unbalanced load. Because of non-linear nature of load and machine, machine fluctuations are different in various speeds. For making controller adaptive with machine, using an artificial neural network, the input-output coefficients are be updated in any speed. Optimized coefficients obtained by using of direct search method, and with these coefficients, artificial neural network trained with Lauvenberg-Marcoardet method. Operational results obtained from developed system, shows the efficiency of given method.

    In this paper, we propose a CMAC(Cerebellar Model Articulation Controller) neural network for controlling a non-linear system. CMAC is a neural network that model the human cerebellum. CMAC uses a table look-up method to resolve the complex non-linear system instead of numerical calculation method. It is very fast learn compared with other neural networks. It does not need a calculation time to generation time to generate control signals. The simulation results show that the proposed CMAC controllers for a simple non-linear function and a DC Motor speed control reduce tracking errors and improve the stability of its learning controllers. The validity of the proposed CMAC controller is also proved by the real-time tension control. (author). 10 refs., 15 figs., 3 tabs.

    2003-01-01

    Evolvable hardware provides the capability to evolve analog circuits to produce amplifier and filter functions. Conventional analog controller designs employ these same functions. Analog controllers for the control of the shaft speed of a DC motor are evolved on an evolvable hardware platform utilizing a second generation Field Programmable Transistor Array (FPTA2). The performance of an evolved controller is compared to that of a conventional proportional-integral (PI) controller. It is shown that hardware evolution is able to create a compact design that provides good performance, while using considerably less functional electronic components than the conventional design. Additionally, the use of hardware evolution to provide fault tolerance by reconfiguring the design is explored. Experimental results are presented showing that significant recovery of capability can be made in the face of damaging induced faults.

    This paper presents strategies to reduce both differential-mode (DM) and common-mode (CM) noise using a passive filter in a dc-fed motor drive. The paper concentrates on the type of grounding and the components to optimize filter size and performance. Grounding schemes, material comparison between ferrite and nanocrystalline cores, and a new integrated filter structure are presented. The integrated structure maximizes the core window area and increases the leakage inductance by integrating both CM and DM inductances onto one core. Small-signal and large-signal experiments validate the structure, showing it to have reduced filter size and good filtering performance when compared with standard filters at both low and high frequencies.

    The dc motor is extensively used as constant speed drive in textile mills, paper mills, printing press, etc.. If the load and supply voltage are time varying, the speed will be changed. Since last few decades the conventional PID controllers are used to maintain the constant speed by controlling the duty ratio of Chopper. Generally, four quadrant chopper is used for regenerative braking and reverse motoring operation. Fuzzy Logic is newly introduced in control system. Fuzzy Control is based on Fuzzy Logic, a logical system which is too much closer in spirit to human thinking and natural language. The Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) provides a linguistic control strategy based on knowledge base of the system. Firstly, the machine is started very smoothly from zero to reference speed in the proposed scheme by increasing the duty ratio. Then change and rate of change of speed (dN, dN/dt), change and rate of change input voltage (dV, dV/dt) and load current are input to FLC. The new value of duty ratio is determined from the Fuzzy rule base and defuzzification method. The chopper will be 'ON' according to new duty ratio to maintain the constant speed. The dynamic and steady state performance of the proposed system is better than conventional control system. In this paper mathematical simulation and experimental implementation are carried out to investigate the drive performance.

The reduced basis technique is a weighted combination of several basis shapes. The aim of the method is to find the best combination using the weights for each shape as the design variables. A multi-level design process is developed to find suitable basis shapes or trial shapes at each level that can be used in the reduced basis technique. Each level is treated as a separated optimization problem until the required objective is achieved. The experimental design of Taguchi method is used to build the approximation model and to perform optimization. This method is demonstrated on the magnet shape optimization of a 6-poles/18-slots PM BLDC motor.

    This paper presents a design and control method of the phase current to reduce the torque ripple of a brushless dc (BLDC) motor by eliminating cogging torque. The cogging torque is the main source of torque ripple and consequently of speed error, and it is also the excitation source to generate the vibration and noise of a motor. This research proposes a modified current wave form, which is composed of main and auxiliary currents. The former is the conventional current to generate the commutating torque. The latter generates the torque with the same magnitude and opposite sign of the corresponding cogging torque at the given position in order to eliminate the cogging torque. Time-stepping finite element method simulation considering pulse-width-modulation switching method has been performed to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method, and it shows that this proposed method reduces torque ripple by 36%. A digital-signal-processor-based controller is also developed to implement the proposed method, and it shows that this proposed method reduces the speed ripple significantly.

    Full Text Available Induction motors are widely used in industrial power plants due to their robustness, reliability and high performance under variable operating conditions in the electrical power system. Modern industrial progress is dependent on these ruggedly constructed induction motors. Almost every sophisticated process of the industry is based on induction motors. Most of these motors are controlled by means of inverters that change the line frequency. The change in parameters of inverter makes it possible to control the motor according to the design requirements. The reliability of inverter based motor control is an important issue for industrial applications and therefore, it becomes very vital for design engineers to have comprehensive analysis of the inverter fed induction machine. This paper investigates one of the faults that may occur on the DC link of an inverter fed induction motor. The effect of the capacitor short circuit is presented in this paper. It also deals with the effects of short circuited capacitor on freewheeling diode. DC link capacitors are well designed and even the probability of capacitor failure is high, it is always a rare case if they puncture, however this analysis will add to the reliability of the induction machine under variable operating condition.

    Full Text Available Brushless DC motor drives are becoming more popular in industrial and traction applications. The control of BLDC motor in four quadrants is very vital. The three-phase permanent magnet brushless dc motor inherently needs an electronic commutation circuit to drive it, because it is not a self-commutating motor. It is contrary to the conventional brush motor which commutates itself. This paper presents a comparison study of three type of control such as PI, PID & fuzzy. The characteristics of the three control methods are investigated intensely and the advantages, disadvantages of each are compared to the others with the help of MATLAB simulink software.

    Full Text Available Current fed Quasi Z-Source Inverters (qZSI have the advantages of voltage buck-boost capability, improved reliability, reduced passive component ratings, continuous input current, a common dc rail between source and inverter and unique regeneration capability. This current-fed qZSIs are bidirectional with an additional diode, unlike the voltage-fed ZSI that needs a switch to achieve bidirectional power flow. Since current fed quasi Z Source Inverter has many advantages it can be employed for motor drive applications such as Brushless DC motor (BLDC drive. Therefore this study proposes the use of qZSI for BLDC motor. The simulation results for the same are presented in this study.

    The necessity of the converters compactness in many applications imposes the reduction of their different components size when it is possible. In this paper, a control method allowing the use of a small size dc-link capacitor for the cascade of voltage controlled-rectifier/inverter-motor drive system is proposed. This is achieved by adding the power balance equation in the system's model and the application of an exact input/output feedback linearization technique in a way that the rectifier controller compensates any sudden change in the inverter load, which is here an induction motor. Since the exact input/output feedback linearization technique is sensitive to the uncertainties over system parameters, a robust control strategy based on sliding mode controller is proposed. By this approach, the dc-link voltage becomes almost insensitive to the load variations. As a result, the level of the dc-link voltage could be stabilized with a small size dc-link capacitor. Without any considerations of the RMS current stress on this dc-link capacitor, a calculation method of a minimum value of this capacitor based on its storage energy is proposed. All the investigations are shown by computer simulations and the performance of controlled system is verified by experimentation results. (author)

    The equation of brushless dc motors is nonlinear, to which linear control theories are difficult to apply. In this paper, firstly, a disturbance observer to estimate rotor positions is proposed. By assuming the non-linear term of the e.m.f. as a kind of disturbance, the model of the brushless dc motors becomes a linear one so that the disturbance observer can be applied. Secondly, a velocity estimator using the e.m.f. estimated by the disturbance observer is proposed. The observer and estimator are 2nd-order, systems. Thus they are simple and easy for tuning. Their pole assignments and influences of parameter deviations are also discussed. The experimental results show that the proposed method is valid. 7 refs., 14 figs., 2 tabs.

    Field orientation control of induction machine (IM) drives is a well-known strategy which has a fast dynamic response. In this paper, the direct rotor flux field orientation control of speed sensorless IM drive is presented. A two level space vector modulation inverter is employed to generate the command stator voltage. In proposed control scheme, a maximum torque per ampere strategy is achieved using a so-called fast flux search method. Based on this method, for a given load torque and rotor speed, the magnitude of rotor reference flux is adjusted step by step until the effective value of stator current becomes minimized finally. In addition, using the IM fifth order model in the stationary reference frame, a nonlinear rotor flux observer is developed which is also capable of motor resistances and rotor speed simultaneously estimation. Moreover, a useful method is introduced for dc offset compensation which is a major problem of ac drives especially at low speeds. The proposed control idea is experimentally implemented in real time using a CPLD board synchronized with a personal computer. Simulation and experimental results are finally presented to confirm the validity and effectiveness of the proposed method.

    System identification is a ubiquitous necessity for successful applications in various fields. The area of system identification can be characterized by a small number of leading principles, e.g. to look for sustainable descriptions by proper decisions in the triangle of model complexity, information contents in the data, and effective validation. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is a stochastic, population-based optimization algorithm and many variants of PSO have been developed since, including constrained, multi objective, and discrete or combinatorial versions and applications have been developed using PSO in many fields. The basic PSO algorithm implicitly utilizes a fully connected neighborhood topology. However, local neighborhood models have also been proposed for PSO long ago, where each particle has access to the information corresponding to its immediate neighbors, according to a certain swarm topology. In this local neighborhood model of PSO, particles have information only of their own and their nearest neighbors' bests, rather than that of the entire population of the swarm. In the present work basic PSO method and two of its local neighborhood variants are utilized for determining the optimal parameters of a dc motor. The result obtain from the simulation study demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed methodology.

    Modeling and identification of mechanical systems constitute an essential stage in practical control design and applications. Controllers commanding systems that operate at varying conditions or require high precision operation raise the need for a nonlinear approach in modeling and identification. Most mechanical systems used in industry are composed of masses moving under the action of position and velocity dependent forces. These forces exhibit nonlinear behavior in certain regions of operation. For a multi-mass rotational system, the nonlinearities, like Coulomb friction and dead zone, significantly influence the system operation when the rotation changes direction. The paper presents nonlinear modeling and identification of a DC motor rotating in two directions together with real time experiments. Linear and nonlinear models for the system are obtained for identification purposes, and the major nonlinearities in the system, such as Coulomb friction and dead zone, are investigated and integrated in the nonlinear model. The Hammerstein nonlinear system approach is used for identification of the nonlinear system model. Online identification of the linear and nonlinear system models is performed using the recursive least squares method. Results of the real time experiments are graphically and numerically presented, and the advantages of the nonlinear identification approach are revealed.

  14. On Stability of Open-Loop Operation without Rotor Information for Brushless DC Motors

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Open-loop operation mode is often used to control the Brushless DC Motors (BLDCMs without rotor position sensors when the back electromotive force (EMF is too weak due to the very low rotor velocity. The rotor position information is not necessary in this mode and the stator windings are supplied with voltages under a certain ratio of the amplitude to the frequency. However, the rotor synchronization will be destroyed once if the commutation instant is inappropriate. In order to improve the reliability of the open-loop operation mode, a dynamic equation is established to represent the synchronization error between the rotor and the stator. Thereafter, the stability of the open-loop control mode is analyzed by using Lyapunov indirect method. Theoretical analysis indicates that the open-loop control mode is asymptotically stable only when the commutation instant of the stator current lags behind the ideal one suitably. Finally, theoretical analysis is verified through the experimental results of a certain BLDCM.

    We designed a neuro-fuzzy controller to improve some problems that are happened when the DC servo motor is controlled by a PID controller or a fuzzy logic controller. Our model proposed in this paper has the stable and accurate responses, and shortened settling time. To prove the capability of the neuro-fuzzy controller designed in this paper, the proposed controller is applied to the speed control of DC servo motor. The results showed that the proposed controller did not produce the overshoot, which happens when PID controller is used, and also it did not produce the steady state error when FLC is used. And also, it reduced the settling time about 10%. In addition, we could be aware that our model was only about 60% of the value of current peak of PID controller.

    This paper deals with speed control of DC servo motor using a PID controller with a gain tuning based on a Back-Propagation(BP) Learning Algorithm. Conventionally a PID controller has been used in the industrial control. But a PID controller should produce suitable parameters for each system. Also, variables of the PID controller should be changed according to environment, disturbance and loads. In this paper described by a experiment that contained a method using a PID controller with a gain tuning based on a Back-Propagation(BP) Learning Algorithm, we developed speed characteristics of a DC servo motor on variable loads. The parameters of the controller are determined by neural network performed on on-line system after training the neural network on off-line system. (author). 15 refs., 14 figs., 5 tabs.

    In this paper, we propose an analytical method for a motor with skewed magnets. In our proposal method, a motor is divided into the some segments, and then the sum of the induced voltage of each segments are coupled with the circuit equation, so that it becomes possible for 2-D FEM to take skewed effects into account. The proposed method has been applied to the analysis of DC Blushless Motor. Calculated results of induced voltage waveforms on no-load show close agreement with measured values. In addition the results of winding current waveforms and average torque vs. speed characteristics in steady state indicate good results. These results confirmed the validity of this method. 9 refs., 19 figs.

    1991-01-01

    To study whether electrophysiological correlates of increasing motor skill can be demonstrated in man, we recorded cortical negative DC-potentials during the acquisition of a complex finger movement in 21 subjects. The movement consisted in moving a matchstick to and fro between the index finger (II) and the little finger (V). Cortical negative DC-potentials were recorded at Fz, Cz, C1, C2 and Pz. As a control a simple finger movement was performed during the same session by 7 of the Ss. Both tasks were repeated 60-80 times and averages of the first and the last 15 artifact-free single runs were compared. Whereas only a slight, inconstant decrease in surface electronegativity during the simple motor task was observed, a significant reduction in potential size occurred during the complex task at Cz (maximum), C1, C2 and Pz but not at Fz. In addition, a significant difference in the decrease of surface electronegativity between various electrode positions was observed. We suggest that these changes in potential size during the process of motor learning may reflect an altered cortical organisation of movement control during the acquisition of a complex motor task.

    A Matlab digital simulation using the Simulink toolbox was used to compare the behaviour of a physical plant operating under a variable structure system (VSS) against the behaviour of the same plant operating under a conventional controller. The study was initiated to examine the application of VSCs in the field of robotics, where fast response and establishment times are required. A variable structure controller (VSC) was synthesized and designed to control a DC motor with an associated load. Basic concepts introduced by V Utkin were used in the synthesis and design process of the VSS. Krassowsky's optimization of a performance criterion was also applied. Both systems reverberate the integral of error between the designated reference and the measured value m-file of the controlled variable. The results confirm a significant reduction in response and settling times, and a weakening of the overshoot due to commutation between various structures of the VSS. This compels the system to enter into the sliding mode trajectory until it reaches a new operation point. The overall resulting system was hardly influenced by external disturbances in the controlled plant. It demonstrated a very quick response to reference changes, suggesting a superior reliability in tracking the input signal. VSCs were found to be influenced by different continuous structures which are commuted by a switching logic based on a subsystem that is government by a state variables linear combination known as sliding hyperplane. The VSS control law refers to the switching between 2 or more controllers, which separately could drive the plant to an unstable behaviour. However, when acting in an alternate manner, they can improve response time, settling time, and maximum overshoot. The phase trajectories of a plant under VSS control are referred to as sliding modes. Input signal tracking was found to be more accurate with VSC than with the proportional controller. It was concluded that the use of

    In this paper, a non-invasive method of early fault diagnostics of electric motors was proposed. This method uses acoustic signals generated by electric motors. Essential features were extracted from acoustic signals of motors. A plan of study of acoustic signals of electric motors was proposed. Researches were carried out for faultless induction motor, induction motor with one faulty rotor bar, induction motor with two faulty rotor bars and flawless Direct Current, and Direct Current motor with shorted rotor coils. Researches were carried out for methods of signal processing: log area ratio coefficients, Multiple signal classification, Nearest Neighbor classifier and the Bayes classifier. A pattern creation process was carried out using 40 samples of sound. In the identification process 130 five-second test samples were used. The proposed approach will also reduce the costs of maintenance and the number of faulty motors in the industry.

    A brushless, permanent magnet, three-phase disc-type salient-pole DC motor with co-axial flux in the stator is considered. Electromechanical properties of a basic eight-pole motor are compared with those for a 16-pole one of the same volume, in order to contrast the two potential candidates for variable-speed, low-cost drives. As a basis of the comparative analysis, 3D FEM magnetic field modelling and circuit analysis considering an electronic commutator are employed. Increasing the number of poles results in unfavourable raising in the switching frequency. The eight-pole motor construction has been shown in simulations to have higher efficiency and lower power losses than its 16-pole counterpart. (Author)

    In this paper, a new method of tuning Proportional Integral (PI) coefficients for a permanent magnet brushless DC (PMBLDC) motor drives is proposed. Artificial neural network is used to identify the whole system using maximum overshoot and settling time obtained from the application circuit for different K{sub p}-K{sub i} pairs. Optimal values of PI controller coefficients are obtained using genetic algorithm. Motion Control Kit (MCK243) is used to carry out digital motion control applications. The MCK243 kit includes a power module and a three-phase brushless motor. TMS320F243 programs are used for PMBLDC motor speed control. Experimental results are given to show the validity of this method.

    For sensorless controlled salient-pole brushless DC motor drives, a new AC current injection method which estimates the position angle with d and q inductances was proposed. However, the estimated position angles include the errors which are casued by an unsymmetrical construction based on the mechanical or magnetic tolerance on the motor. It is difficult to correct the errors with hardwares like filters. An error correcting technique of an estimated position angle and rotating speed is proposed. The errors which are casued by the unsymmetrical construction appear as a modeling error of the motor periodically. Then, a neuro-like fuzzy technique can be applied to correct the error of the estimated position angle. When the motor is controlled at a commanded speed, the speed of the motor contains unexpected cyclic speed errors. The fuzzy model which estimates these errors is learned with a back propagation method which uses the cyclic errors as a teacher signal. Then, the system corrects the estimated position angles with the estimated errors. From the experimental results, the proposed sensorless control system could estimate more accurate position angle than conventional systems could. 18 refs., 12 figs., 1 tab.

    The Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motor is widely used in aerospace area, CNC machines and servo systems that require the high control accuracy Once the faults occur in the motor, it will cause great damage to the whole system. Mechanical faults are common in electric machines, and account for up to 50%-60% of the faults. Approximately, 80% of the mechanical faults lead to the eccentricity. So it is necessary to monitor the health condition of the motor to ensure the faults can be detected earlier and measures will be taken to imorove the reliability.

    In this paper, an enhanced Z-source inverter (ZSI) is introduced for controlling the speed of permanent magnet brushless DC motor (PMBLDCM) drive. It is the extension of the conventional ZSI and the elements used in the circuit are the same as those of the conventional ZSI, except that the position of Inverter Bridge and diode would be exchanged from the classical circuit diagram. This exchanged circuit avoids the startup path of the inrush current and hence reduces the inrush current and improves the motor efficiency. Different modes of enhanced ZSI are studied with PMBLDCM. The voltage polarity of Z-source capacitors in the proposed circuit is the same as that of the input voltage polarity. Furthermore, to get the same voltage boost, the capacitor voltage stress is reduced to a significant extent. The speed control capability of the proposed brushless DC motor drive is compared with that of the conventional ZSI. The proposed ZSI is implemented in MATLAB/Simulink working platform and the output performance is evaluated. Also, the performance of voltage ratio is analysed both by simulation and mathematical models. All these analyses are known to express the innovative features of the proposed system.

    Sensorless starting and low speed drive of a cylindrical brushless DC motor with un-known load have been a difficult problem because an electromotive force does not arise enough at the starting and at low speeds and an inductance is constant irrespective of rotor position. In this paper, it is proposed to paste non-magnetic material and to measure a voltage of an opened phase to realize sensorless starting and low speed drives. The method is shown very feasible by experiments. 13 refs., 17 figs., 2 tabs.
