Vector controlled induction motor drive using transputer parallel processors
Sumner, M. (1990) Vector controlled induction motor drive using transputer parallel processors. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis describes the design and construction of a high performance induction motor drive, controlled by a network of parallel (INMOS) Transputer processors. The flexibility and high computational ability of the controller is demonstrated by the implementation of three forms of indirect vector control for the induction motor (here termed "V-Type, "V-Type with Current Feedback" and "I-Type") on two motor drive rigs. Results show that V-Type control with current feedback is superior, and that on-line parameter estimation (namely the rotor time constant) is required.
