Preface

The book describes the concept of advanced control strategies of AC machine drives along with their complete simulation models using Matlab/Simulink. Electrical Motors consume the most energy of the electricity generated worldwide. Thus, there exists a huge scope of saving energy by devising efficient operation schemes of these electrical machines. One approach could be the special design of motors with high-energy efficiency. Other approach lies in the proper control of the machines. The electrical motors employed in various applications run at fixed speed. However, it is found that by varying the speed of motors depending upon the load requirements, the efficiency can be improved significantly; thus, the variable speed operation is extremely important in obtaining highly efficient operations of the machines. As a result, the speed control of a machine for industrial and household applications is most vital for limiting greenhouse gas emission and offering an environment-friendly solution. Controlling the operation of an electrical machine by varying its speed, in literature, is called ‘variable speed drives’ or ‘adjustable speed drives’.

This book discusses the advanced technology used to obtain variable speed AC drives. This book also describes the basic modeling procedures of power electronic converters and AC machines. The mathematical model thus obtained will be used to develop a simulation model using Matlab/Simulink. The Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) techniques ...
