Research on BFV-SVPWM Control Strategy for Two Double-Y Shift 30° PMSM Series-Connected System


Article Preview

Multi-motor drive system is one important area of the motion control research. In this paper, the working principle of single-inverter driving the series-connected system of two double Y-shift 30 ° PMSM is proposed. In order to achieve the better decouple operating of the two series-connected motors and improving the DC bus utilization, a novel control method of BFV-SVPWM for the system is presented. In Matlab/Simulink environment, variable-speed operations are simulated to verify that the proposed BFV-SVPWM control is strategy feasibility and superiority.
