Based on the back electromotive force (back-EMF) detection, a novel rotor position estimation strategy with adjustable turn on/off angle is proposed for the high-speed hybrid switched reluctance motor (SRM). The minimum back-EMF position is captured in every electrical cycle for rotor position estimation. The current comparator is employed to send out a turnoff signal for phase winding when the maximum inductance position is detected in the first electrical cycle. By providing sufficient current rise time to the phase winding, the proposed sensorless control system enables the motor to run in high-speed application. Besides the straightforward estimation principle, the proposed strategy has the implemental feasibility by eliminating extensive calculations and complicated look-up tables. The experimental results of a prototype are demonstrated to verify the proposed sensorless control system.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
