Fault Tolerant Control of Induction Motor Drives Subject to Rotor Resistance Adaptation
Keywords:Adaptive observer, fault tolerant control, induction machine, vector control
This paper describes the synthesis of a vector fault tolerant control of induction motor drives using an adaptive observer. This observer is used to detect the rotor resistance and flux components using the stator terminal voltages and currents. The rotor resistance is adapted using a new algorithm which does not imply a high computational load. Stability analysis based on Lyapunov theory is performed in order to guarantee the closed loop stability. The rotor resistance is used for the correction of the controllers and the rotor time constant. To verify the tolerance and the applicability of this control, we consider the stator inter-turn fault which is frequently encountered in practice. An analytical method for the modelling of this fault is presented. The equations which describe the transient as well as steady state behavior of unsymmetrical induction machine including the computation of machine inductances are presented. These inductances are calculated analytically using the magnetic field distribution through the machine air-gap. Simulation results are provided to evaluate the consistency and performance of the proposed fault tolerant control of induction motor based vector control.
