High Dynamic Flux Control (HDFC) for all asynchronous motors (ACIM) with VP600 up to 800 V
The challenge: Optimum efficiency with asynchronous motors
The dynamic control (with regard to the torque) of asynchronous motors is very demanding because asynchronous motors (ACIM) without magnets do not have a permanent magnetic field and the magnetic field of the rotor can only be built up with a certain time delay. If you add the requirement to operate the motor with optimum efficiency at every operating point – from low to maximum load, then simple control strategies often become impossible.
For an optimum control, the magnetic flux is calculated in real time depending on all required controller variables, such as temperature, voltage, current, speed, or torque, using a special physical model. As a result, the rotor resistance is also known depending on the temperature, among other things.
This highly dynamic calculation of the motor flux is implemented with the special FPGA-based controller cascade from ARADEX, which makes real-time calculations possible in the first place due to their speed and deterministic processes.
These basic principles make it possible to almost completely compensate for the strong temperature-dependent effects in an asynchronous motor and considerably increase the efficiency.
