The Novel Rotor Flux Estimation Scheme Based on the Induction Motor Mathematical Model Including Rotor Deep-Bar Effect
AbstractDuring torque transients, rotor electromagnetic parameters of an induction motor (IM) vary due to the rotor deep-bar effect. The accurate representation of rotor electromagnetic parameter variability by an adopted IM mathematical model is crucial for a precise estimation of the rotor flux space vector. An imprecise estimation of the rotor flux phase angle leads to incorrect decoupling of electromagnetic torque control and rotor flux amplitude regulation which in turn, causes deterioration in field-oriented control of IM drives. Variability of rotor electromagnetic parameters resulting from the rotor deep-bar effect can be modeled by the IM mathematical model with rotor multi-loop representation. This paper presents a study leading to define the unique rotor flux space vector on the basis of the IM mathematical model with rotor two-terminal network representation. The novel rotor flux estimation scheme was validated with the laboratory test bench employing the IM of type Sg 132S-4 with two variants of rotor construction: a squirrel-cage rotor and a solid rotor manufactured from magnetic material S235JR. The accuracy verification of the rotor flux estimation was performed in a slip frequency range corresponding to the IM load adjustment range up to 1.30 of the stator rated current. This study proved the correct operation of the developed rotor flux estimation scheme and its robustness against electromagnetic parameter variability resulting from the rotor deep-bar effect in the considered slip frequency range.
