Abstract:   (1614 Views)
In this paper, a novel stator current based Model Reference Adaptive System (MRAS) estimator for speed estimation in the speed-sensorless vector controlled induction motor drives is presented. In the proposed MRAS estimator, measured stator current of the induction motor is considered as a reference model. The estimated stator current is produced in an adjustable model to compare with the measured stator current, where rotor flux identification is needed for stator current estimation. In the available stator current based MRAS estimator, rotor flux is estimated by the use of measured stator current, where the adjustable model and reference model depend on each other since measured stator current is employed in both of them. To improve the performance of the MRAS speed estimator, both the stator current and rotor flux are estimated in the adjustable model by using the state space equations of the induction motor, adjusted with the rotor speed calculated by an adaptation mechanism. The stability of the proposed MRAS estimator is studied through a small signal analysis. Senorless induction motor drive along with the proposed MRAS speed estimator is verified through computer simulations. In addition, performance of the proposed MRAS is compared with the available stator current based MRAS speed estimator
