<p>The main aim of this paper is to present a novel control approach of an induction machine (IM) using an improved space vector modulation based direct torque control (SVM-DTC) on the basis of imaginary swapping instant technique. The improved control strategy is presented to surmount the drawbacks of the classical direct torque control (DTC) and to enhance the dynamic performance of the induction motor. This method requires neither angle identification nor sector determination; the imaginary swapping instant vector is used to fix the effective period in which the power is transferred to the IM. Both the classical DTC method and the suggested adaptive DTC techniques have been carried out in MATLAB/SimulinkTM. Simulation results shows the effectiveness of the enhanced control strategy and demonstrate that torque and flux ripples are massively diminished compared to the conventional DTC (CDTC) which gives a better performance. Finally, the system will also be tested for its robustness against variations in the IM parameters.</p>

The Matrix Converter–fed Finite Control Set–Model Predictive Control is an efficient drive control approach that exhibits numerous advantageous features. However, it is computationally expensive as it employs all the available matrix converter voltage vectors for the prediction and estimation. The computational complexity increases further with respect to the inclusion of additional control objectives in the cost function which degrades the potentiality of this technique. This paper proposes two computationally effective switching tables for simplifying the calculation process and optimizing the matrix converter active prediction vectors. Here, three prediction active vectors are selected out of 18 vectors by considering the torque and flux errors of the permanent magnet synchronous motor. In addition, the voltage vector location segments are modified into 12 sectors to boost the torque dynamic control. The performance superiority of the proposed concept is analyzed using the MATLAB/Simulink software and the real-time validation is conducted by implementing in the real-time OPAL-RT lab setup.

The goal of this study was to figure out how to regulate an induction motor in a hybrid electric vehicle. Conventional combined vector and direct control induction motors take advantage of the advantages of vector control and direct torque control. It is also a method that avoids some of the difficulties in implementing both of the two control methods. However, for this method of control, the statoric current has a great wealth of harmonic components which, unfortunately, results in a strong undulation of the torque regardless of the region speed. To solve this problem, a five-level neutral point clamped inverter was used. Through multilevel inverter operation, the voltage is closer to the sine wave. The speed and torque are then successfully controlled with a lower level of ripple in the torque response which improves system performance. The analysis of this study was verified with simulation in the MATLAB/Simulink interface. The simulation results demonstrate the high performance of this control strategy.

This paper presents a method to extend the DC bus utilization on an induction motor (IM) by using a combination of Space-Vector Modulated Direct Torque Control (DTC–SVM) and conventional DTC. The scheme proposed in this paper exploits the advantages of both control methods. During the linear region, it allows for a low torque ripple and low current harmonic distortion (THD). During the overmodulation region, it allows for the fastest torque response up to the six-step operation region. In both regions, there is complete independence of the motor parameters. The paper describes a way to provide a smooth transition between the two control schemes. Non-linearities affect the stator flux angle estimation, which leads to the inability to decouple torque and flux. To overcome this problem, a novel PI-based control scheme as well as a simplification on the decoupling terms’ calculation are proposed. Simulation and experimental results are presented to verify the feasibility of the proposed method.

This article presents 24 sectors direct torque control (DTC) with fuzzy hysteresis comparators for the doubly-fed induction motor (DFIM) using a three-level neutral point clamped (NPC) inverter. The designed DTC technique of the DFIM combines the advantages of the DTC strategy and fuzzy logic controller. The reaching conditions, stability, and robustness of the DFIM with the designed DTC technique are guaranteed. The designed DTC technique is insensitive to uncertainties, including parameter variations and external disturbances in the whole control process. Finally, the designed DTC technique with fuzzy hysteresis comparators is used to regulate the electromagnetic torque and the flux of the DFIM fed by the three-level NPC inverter and confirms the validity of the designed DTC technique. Results of simulations containing tests of robustness and tracking tests are presented.

Nowadays the multi-inverter multi-machine conventional system takes a great interest of industrials like railway traction. The implementation of single inverter to dual motor makes all the system cheaper; soft operation, more robust and reliable; This paper is one of control methods proposed in the literature to improve performance of this system, a master slave and average control based in artificial neural networks direct torque control of bi asynchronous motors supplied by single three level inverter NPC is discussed. The result of theoretical analysis is tested with MATLAB SIMULINK environment. And through that, the possibility of DTC single inverter multi-motor system has been verified.
