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

An angular position and velocity observer-based sensorless flux vector-oriented control scheme for a prominent doubly-fed reluctance generator has been presented and experimentally validated. This technology allows the use of the same partially rated power converter as the traditional slipring doubly-excited induction generator, while offering competitive performance with added cost benefits of high reliability and maintenance-free operation afforded by its brushless construction. The controller viability has been demonstrated on a laboratory machine prototype for emulated variable speed and loading conditions similar to those encountered in wind turbines.
