Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A simple analytical technique, which uses readily available datasheet parameters, is developed to model the low-current switching characteristics of IGBTs. Simulation and experimental results obtained using three differently rated inverters are presented to demonstrate the accuracy of the technique. The model is applied to compensate the nonlinear distortion, introduced by IGBT switching action in a three-phase inverter, of high-frequency injected voltage and current signals used in sensorless control of a permanent magnet brushless AC machine. Experimental results show that the compensation technique improves rotor position estimation by up to 20°electrical.
