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

witched reluctance motors (SRMs) have been considered as low-cost machines for electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) applications. However, the current sensors used in the system will not only increase the cost and volume, but also degrade the running reliability of the motor drives. Conventionally, the current sensors are used in each phase winding individually to obtain these phase currents. To reduce the number of current sensors, a four-phase 8/6-pole SRM is applied to analyze the working states and a novel phase current reconstruction method from the dc-link current employing double high frequency pulses injection is then proposed. Two kinds of high frequency pulses with large duty-cycles and phase-shift are injected to the down-switches in each phase respectively when the phase currents are overlapped in the turn-on region, and the dc-link current is decomposed to reconstruct phase currents in both current chopping control (CCC) system and single pulse control (SPC) system. The transient performance in a closed-loop system based on the phase current reconstruction scheme is investigated. The proposed method uses only one current sensor in the dc-link and requires no additional circuits. The simulation and experimental results are presented to confirm the implementation of the proposed method.
