ATEMD-01 COMMUTATION TORQUE RIPPLE REDUCTION IN BLDC MOTOR USING MODIFIED SEPIC CONVERTER AND THREE-LEVEL NPC INVERTER
This paper presents a new power converter topology to suppress the torque ripple due to the phase current commutation of a brushless DC motor (BLDCM) drive system. A combination of a 3-level diode clamped multilevel inverter (3-level DCMLI), a modified single-ended primary-inductor converter (SEPIC), and a dc-bus voltage selector circuit are employed in the proposed torque ripple suppression circuit.

This paper presents a power factor correction (PFC) based bridgeless-canonical switching cell (BL-CSC) converter fed brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive. The proposed BL-CSC converter operating in a discontinuous inductor current mode is used to achieve a unity power factor at the AC mains using a single voltage sensor. The speed of BLDC motor is controlled by varying the DC bus voltage of the voltage source inverter (VSI) feeding BLDC motor via a PFC converter. For complete abstract CLICK HERE
This paper proposes a sensorless speed control technique for Brushless DC Motor (BLDC) drives by estimating speed from the hall sensor signals. Conventionally, the speed is measured using precision speed encoders. Since these encoders cost almost half of the entire drive system, there arises the need for a low cost speed estimation technique. For complete Abstract CLICK HERE
This paper proposes a novel pulse-width-amplitude modulation (PWAM) method for three-phase quasi-Z source inverter system in motor drive application. It is demonstrated that it operates at only 1/3 switching frequency of traditional PWM methods, with less harmonic distortion. As a result, switching actions and losses are also reduced significantly. For complete abstract CLICK HERE
In this paper a novel position sensorless scheme named Back EMF Zero Difference Point (ZDP) detection has been proposed for six-switch VSI converter fed permanent magnet BLDC motor. This technique is based on the comparison of back EMFs and detection of the points in the back EMF waveforms where they cross each other or in other words they are equal.

Since last decade, due to advancement in technology and increasing in the electrical loads and also due to complexity of the devices the quality of power distribution is decreases. A Power quality issue is nothing but distortions in current, voltage and frequency that affect the end user equipment or disoperation; these are main problems of power quality so compensation for these problems by DPFC is presented in this paper.

ATPE-11 REMAINING USEFUL LIFE ESTIMATION OF BLDC MOTOR CONSIDERING VOLTAGE DEGRADATION AND ATTENTION-BASED NEURAL NETWORK
Brushless DC motor, also referred to as BLDC motor, has been a widely used electric machine due to its excellent performance over conventional DC motors. Due to complex operating conditions and overloading, several irregularities can take place in a motor. Stator related faults are among the most commonly occurring faults in BLDC motor. With an initial raise in local heating, a fault in the stator can largely reduce motor efficiency and account for the entire system breakdown. For complete abstract CLICK HERE.
This paper introduces non-electrical input based artificial neural network (ANN) maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique to the solar powered water pumping system using brushless DC (BLDC) motor. The objective is to model a step size independent MPPT using neural network for water pumping application. A DC-DC boost converter is being utilized which is driven by ANN based MPPT to extract maximum power out of solar photovoltaic (SPV) array and also responsible for soft starting of BLDC motor.For complete abstract CLICK HERE.
