PMSM Speed Sensor less Direct Torque Control Based On EKF Best Electrical Engineering Projects

System with mechanical speed sensor has lower reliability and higher cost. Traditional direct torque control method has disadvantages of big ripples on current and flux linkage and torque. To solve these problems, the Extended Kalman Filter is established to estimate both stator flux linkage and rotor speed. Therefore, speed sensorless direct torque control for surface permanent magnet synchronous motor is realized. Simulation results have shown that the advantage of direct torque control method such as rapid torque response is maintained, at the same time, the system based on EKF is robust to motor parameters and load disturbance. The dynamic and static performances are dramatically improved.

Speed sensorless DTC control based on EKF for SPMSM is proposed. For a relatively accurate SPMSM model, flux linkage and rotor speed and rotor position can be estimated more precisely by EKF algorithm. Ripples on torque and stator flux are reduced. The motor start problems are solved as EKF do not need accurate initial rotor position information to achieve observer stability convergence. DTC control for PMSM based on EKF has just begun. Many places are imperfect and need for further study.
