A comprehensive guide to underst&ing AC machines with exhaustive simulation models to practice design & control
Nearly seventy percent of the electricity generated worldwide is used by electrical motors. Worldwide, huge research efforts are being made to develop commercially viable three- & multi-phase motor drive systems that are economically & technically feasible.
Focusing on the most popular AC machines used in industry - induction machine & permanent magnet synchronous machine - this book illustrates advanced control techniques & topologies in practice & recently deployed. Examples are drawn from important techniques including Vector Control, Direct Torque Control, Nonlinear Control, Predictive Control, multi-phase drives & multilevel inverters.
Key features include:
* systematic coverage of the advanced concepts of AC motor drives with & without output filter;
* discussion on the modelling, analysis & control of three- & multi-phase AC machine drives, including the recently developed multi-phase-phase drive system & double fed induction machine;
* description of model predictive control applied to power converters & AC drives, illustrated together with their simulation models;
* end-of-chapter questions, with answers & PowerPoint slides available on the companion website www.wiley.com/go/aburub_control
This book integrates a diverse range of topics into one useful volume, including most the latest developments. It provides an effective guideline for students & professionals on many vital electric drives aspects. It is an advanced textbook for final year undergraduate & graduate students, & researchers in power electronics, electric drives & motor control. It is also a h&y tool for specialists & practicing engineers wanting to develop & verify their own algorithms & techniques.
