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

This paper proposes a novel rotor resistance identification method for an indirect rotor flux-orientated controlled induction machine drive. The method is effectively integrated with the intermediate current control loop of the system. A decoupled synchronous voltage control scheme is used to achieve a fast, accurate current control response and indicates the relative thermal change of the rotor resistance. A model reference adaptive control scheme is then used to track the variation of the rotor resistance. Other issues, such as the nonideal characteristics of the power devices, stator resistance variation and comparison with two other parameter identification methods, are included. This method is less complex and more effective than others, and this is supported by theoretical analysis, and verified by simulation and experimental results.
