Modern Variable Speed System A modern variable speed system has four components: 1. Electric Motor 2. Power Converter - Rectifiers - Choppers - Inverters3. Controllers – matching the motor and power converter to meet the load requirements 4. Load
Electric MotorsTypes of electric motors presently used forspeed control applications are: 1. DC motors AC motors Shunt Induction Series Wound rotor Compound synchronous Separately excited Permanent magnet Switched synchronous reluctance motors Reluctance motors
Motor Selection1. Cost2. Thermal capacity3. Efficiency4. Torque-speed profile5. Acceleration6. Power density, volume of the motor7. Ripple, cogging torque8. Peak torque capability9. Suitability for hazardous environment10. Availability of spare parts
Electric Motors (contd’)For position servo applications: The peak torque and thermal capabilities together with ripple and cogging torques are important characteristics for servo application Higher peak torques decrease the acceleration/deceleration times Minimum cogging and ripple torques help to attain higher positioning repeatability and higher thermal capability leading to a longer motor life and a higher amount of loading
Power ConvertersThe power converters driving the motors are: 1. Controlled Rectifiers Controlled rectifiers are fed from single and three-phase AC main supply.Vc: Voltage controlledKr: Gain (proportionality constant)
Power Converters (contd’)2. Inverters – Voltage and current source converters are fed from a DC link. The DC link is generated with either a controlled or uncontrolled rectifier.Vc: controlled magnitude commandfc: frequency command
ControllersThe controllers implement the control strategygoverning the load and motor characteristicsTo match the load and motor, the input to thepower converter is controlled (manipulated) bythe controller
Controllers (contd’)The inputs to the controller consists of: 1. Torque, flux, speed, and/or position commands 2. Their rate of variations to facilitate soft start, to preserve the mechanical integrity of the load 3. The actual values of torque, flux, speed, and/or position for feedback control. 4. Limiting values of currents, torque, acceleration, etc. 5. Temperature feedback, instantaneous currents and/or voltages in the motor and/or converter.

Modern Electrical Drive SystemsOverview of AC and DC drives DC drives: Electrical drives that use DC motors as the prime mover Regular maintenance, heavy, expensive, speed limit Easy control, decouple control of torque and flux AC drives: Electrical drives that use AC motors as the prime mover Less maintenance, light, less expensive, high speed Coupling between torque and flux – variable spatial angle between rotor and stator flux
Modern Electrical Drive SystemsOverview of AC and DC drives Before semiconductor devices were introduced (<1950) • AC motors for fixed speed applications • DC motors for variable speed applications After semiconductor devices were introduced (1960s) • Variable frequency sources available – AC motors in variable speed applications • Coupling between flux and torque control • Application limited to medium performance applications – fans, blowers, compressors – scalar control • High performance applications dominated by DC motors – tractions, elevators, servos, etc
Modern Electrical Drive SystemsOverview of AC and DC drives After vector control drives were introduced (1980s) • AC motors used in high performance applications – elevators, tractions, servos • AC motors favorable than DC motors – however control is complex hence expensive • Cost of microprocessor/semiconductors decreasing –predicted 30 years ago AC motors would take over DC motors
