Abstract

Medium-voltage (MV) drives are generally based on either voltage-source inverters or current-source inverters (CSIs). CSIs feature simple topology, motor-friendly waveforms, power reversal capability, and short-circuit-proof protection; hence, they are widely used as high-power MV drives. Direct vector control (DVC) CSI drives ensure improved performance by decoupled control of the machine flux and torque using two independent control loops. Despite the excellent performance of DVC, this scheme faces practical challenges, like dc offset in the stator model and machine parameter dependence. Conventional indirect vector control (IVC) CSI drives are known for reduced computational burden and less machine dependence. However, conventional-IVC CSI drives exhibit poor dynamic response and transient field misorientation due to the absence of a dedicated flux control loop. In this paper, a modified IVC technique is proposed featuring superior decoupling and field orientation using only two extra proportional-integral current controllers with additional motor current feedback signals. The proposed-technique effectiveness is examined experimentally, on a scaled low-voltage prototype, as well as using simulation results.
