DETERMINATION OF INDUCTION MOTOR PARAMETERS

The motor is a three phase 158-W, 240-V induction motor (Model 295 Bodine Electric Co.)

The motor is Y-connected with no access to the neutral point.

DC Resistance Test:

To determine R1;

Connect any two stator leads to a variable voltage DC power supply.

Adjust the power supply to provide rated stator current.

Determine the resistance from the voltmeter and ammeter readings.

As shown in figure 3.7, a DC voltage VDC is applied so that the current IDC is close to the motor rating.

Because the machine is Y-connected: RS = Rdc/2 = (VDC/IDC)/2.

From measurement, VDC = 30.6V, IDC = 1.05A.

Hence,

RS = RDC = (31.5/1.04) = 15.14?/phase.

BLOCKED – ROTOR TEST

To determine X1 and X2

Determine R2 when combined with data from the DC test.

Block the rotor so that it will not turn.

Connect to a variable voltage supply and adjust until the blocked – rotor current is equal to the rated current.

NO LOAD TEST

To determine the magnetizing reactance, Xm and combined core, friction, and wind age losses.

Connect as in block rotor test below.

The rotor is unblocked and allowed to run unloaded at rated voltage and frequency.

The set up for no load test and blocked rotor test is shown in the figure below:

With the rotor locked, the rotor speed is zero and per- unit slip is equal to unity. The equivalent circuit is as shown in Figure 3.10 or Figure 3.11.

3.3 IMPLEMENTATION

MATLAB fuzzy logic tool box was used in the implementation of the duty ratio fuzzy controller. The graphic user interface included in the tool box was used to edit the membership functions for the inputs (the torque error and the flux position), the output (the duty ratio). A Mamdani type fuzzy inference engine was used in the simulation. The membership functions and the fuzzy rules were adjusted using the simulation until a particular torque ripple reduction was achieved.

To know the performance of the duty ratio controller, the simulation was run at switching frequency of 5KHz. The difference between the conventional DTC and DTC with duty ratio fuzzy control was clearly realized by monitoring the switching behavior of the stator voltage and the electric torque. The selected voltage vector is applied for the complete sampling period and the torque keeps increasing for the complete period, then a zero voltage is applied and the torque keeps decreasing for the complete sampling period and these results in high torque ripple.

The selected voltage vector is applied for part of the sampling period and removed for the rest of the period. As a result, the electric torque increases for part of the sampling period and then starts to decrease. By adjustment of the duty ratio, the desired average torque may be continuously maintained. The duty ratio controller smoothly adjusts the average stator voltage.
