Robust control technique in power converter with linear induction motor

Nicolás Toro García, Yeison Alberto Garcés Gomez, Vladimir Henao Cespedes


Induction motors are widely used in industrial applications as actuators, thanks to their simplicity of construction, which is subsequently reflected in low-cost maintenance. This paper shows the behavior of a three-phase power converter with a Linear Induction Motor (LIM) as load, using a quasi-sliding control technique for output voltage regulation and a new control technique to control chaos. Digital Pulse Width Modulation (DPWM) techniques are widely used to control electronic power converters. The controller proposed in this paper was designed using Zero Average Dynamic (ZAD) and Fixed Point Inducting Control (FPIC) techniques. The ZAD-FPIC control strategy was designed and applied to a three-phase converter with linear induction motor load. Since it is not possible to measure the secondary currents, a secondary current observer was included in the system. Finally, bifurcation diagrams are shown as a technique for tuning controller parameters in ZAD-FPIC controllers. For the illustration of numerical results a simulation of the linear induction motor drive controlled was made by Matlab/SimulinK. The designs were tested in a Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) system based on Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for dSPACE platform, using the 1103 controller card and control desk interface
