IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 2013

ABSTRACT:

This paper presents a power factor correction (PFC) based bridgeless-Luo (BL-Luo) converter fed brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive. A single voltage sensor is used for the speed control of BLDC motor and PFC at AC mains. The voltage follower control is used for a BL-Luo converter operating in discontinuous inductor current mode (DICM). The speed of the BLDC motor is controlled by an approach of variable DC link voltage, which allows a low frequency switching of voltage source inverter (VSI) for electronic commutation of BLDC motor; thus offers reduced switching losses. The proposed BLDC motor drive is designed to operate over a wide range of speed control with an improved power quality at AC mains. The power quality indices thus obtained are under the recommended limits of IEC 61000-3-2. The performance of the proposed drive is validated with test results obtained on a developed prototype of the drive.

Brushless DC motor drive with power factor regulation using Landsman converter

IET Power Electronics, 2016

 ABSTRACT: This study presents a novel configuration of power factor regulation (PFR)-based Landsman converter feeding a brushless DC motor (BLDCM) drive for low-power (400 W) white goods applications. The speed control of the drive is achieved through adjusting the DC bus voltage of voltage source inverter (VSI) feeding to a BLDCM. Moreover, low frequency switching signals are used for electronic commutation of BLDCM, which reduces the switching power losses of six solid-state switches of VSI. This Landsman converter-based front-end power factor corrector operating in discontinuous inductor current mode is used to control DC bus voltage and PFR is achieved inherently. The DC bus voltage of the drive is controlled by using a single DC voltage sensor. For evaluating the performance of proposed drive, a prototype is developed in the laboratory. The performance of the BLDCM is also analysed for its operation at varying AC mains voltage (90–265 V). Experiential results for power quality indices are found within the limits of power quality standard IEC 61000-3-2.

CONCLUSION:

A PFR-based Landsman converter fed BLDCM drive has been proposed for the use in low power household appliances. Adjustable voltage control of DC bus of VSI has been used to control the speed of BLDCM which eventually has given the freedom to operate the VSI in low frequency switching operation for minimum switching losses. A front-end Landsman converter-based PFR operating in DICM has been applied for double objectives of DC bus voltage control and achieving a UPF at AC supply. Resulted performance for presented drive has been found quite satisfactory for its operation at variation of speed over a wide range. A prototype of Landsman-based BLDCM drive has been implemented with acceptable test results for its operation over complete speed range and its operation over universal AC mains. The stress of the PFR converter switch has been evaluated to conclude its feasibility. The obtained power quality parameters are found within the limit of various international standards like as IEC 61000-3-2.

BLDC Motor Driven Solar PV Array Fed Water Pumping System Employing Zeta Converter

BLDC Motor Driven Solar PV Array Fed Water Pumping System Employing Zeta Converter

 ABSTRACT:

This paper proposes a simple, cost effective and efficient brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive for solar photovoltaic (SPV) array fed water pumping system. A zeta converter is utilized in order to extract the maximum available power from the SPV array. The proposed control algorithm eliminates phase current sensors and adapts a fundamental frequency switching of the voltage source inverter (VSI), thus avoiding the power losses due to high frequency switching. No additional control or circuitry is used for speed control of the BLDC motor. The speed is controlled through a variable DC link voltage of VSI. An appropriate control of zeta converter through the incremental conductance maximum power point tracking (INC-MPPT) algorithm offers soft starting of the BLDC motor. The proposed water pumping system is designed and modeled such that the performance is not affected under dynamic conditions. The suitability of proposed system at practical operating conditions is demonstrated through simulation results using MATLAB/ Simulink followed by an experimental validation.

Control of Induction Motor Drive using Space Vector PWM

 ABSTRACT

In this paper speed of induction motor is controlled which is fed from three phase bridge inverter. In this paper the speed of an induction motor can be varied by varying input Voltage or frequency or both. Variable voltage and variable frequency for Adjustable Speed Drives (ASD) is invariably obtained from a three-phase Voltage Source Inverter (VSI). Voltage and frequency of inverter can be easily controlled by using PWM techniques, which is a very important aspect in the application of ASDs. A number of PWM techniques are there to obtain variable voltage and variable frequency supply such as PWM, SPWM, SVPWM to name a few, among the various modulation strategies SVPWM is one of the most efficient techniques as it has better performance and output voltage is similar to sinusoidal. In SVPWM the modulation index in linear region will also be high when compared to other.

ABSTRACT:

Solar energy is one of the most promising Renewable Energy Sources (RES) that can be used to produce electric energy through Photovoltaic (PV) process. The Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) systems which directly supply power to the grid are becoming more popular. A power electronic converter which converts DC power from the PV array to AC power at required voltage and frequency levels is known as Inverter. Generally different Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) techniques have been implemented for grid connected 3-phase Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) system. This paper describes few types of PWM techniques and mathematical model of LC filter circuit is given using state space analysis. Sine-PWM technique is proposed for 3-phase VSI and implemented using the state space model of the LC filter circuit. The simulation is performed in MATLAB/Simulink platform.
