Abstract

A novel approach of exploiting the statorerature-monitoring system to perform sensorless rotor-position estimation is described in this paper. The rotor position is, in fact, estimated by processing the voltages induced in thermistor cablings, which are modified in order to work as search coils (SCs). Using SCs, some typical drawbacks of sensorless position-estimation techniques based on the manipulation of fundamental components of stator voltages and currents, such as those related to inverter non-linearities, stator-resistance voltage drops, magnetic saturation and cross-coupling, can be overcome or mitigated. According to the proposed approach, a rotor-position-tracking technique for synchronous reluctance motor drives is developed independently from motor parameters. Such a sensorless rotor-position-estimation technique can be directly used to build up a sensorless controller or to improve the performance of conventional model based sensorless control systems. Simulations and experimental tests confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
