Laboratory Sessions: Module 3

Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS)


A series of laboratory modules will be discussed in this chapter, which have been designed to lead the reader through the development phases needed to understand and work with a sensorless field-oriented IM drive. Sensorless control implementation is based on the use of the InstaSPIN algorithm, which will be configured for different modes of operation. This implies application of the algorithm as a ‘software encoder’ as well as full motor parameter identification. In addition, a special inductance machine algorithm referred to as ‘PowerWarp’ will be discussed, which allows energy efficient operation under partial load conditions.
