This book provides a unique approach to derive model-based torque controllers for all types of Lorentz force machines, i.e. DC, synchronous and induction machines. The rotating transformer model forms the basis for the generalized modeling approach of rotating field machines, which leads to the development of universal field-oriented control algorithms. Contrary to this, direct torque control algorithms, using observer-based methods, are developed for switched reluctance machines.
Tutorials are included at the end of each chapter, and the reader is encouraged to execute these tutorials in order to gain familiarity with the dynamic behavior of drive systems. This updated edition uses PLECS® simulation and vector processing tools that were specifically adopted for the purpose of these hands-on tutorials. Hence, Advanced Electrical Drives encourages "learning by doing" and the experienced drive specialist may find the simulation tools useful to design high-performance torque controllers.
Although it is a powerful reference in its own right, when used in conjunction with the companion texts Fundamentals of Electrical Drives and Applied Control of Electrical Drives, this book provides a uniquely comprehensive reference set that takes readers all the way from understanding the basics of how electrical drives work, to deep familiarity with advanced features and models, to a mastery of applying the concepts to actual hardware in practice.
