Abstract

Sensorless position control of Surface Mounted Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines (S.MPMSM) still is a challenge. High performance position control at low and zero speed is only possible using anisotropic effects being not considered in the fundamental-frequency machine models but in extended high-frequency models. This paper presents a new high-frequency injection method estimating the rotor position, which overcomes the small signal to noise ratio inherent to methods of this type published so far. This enables to track even small saliencies typical for SMPM synchronous machines. A small high-frequency voltage signal is injected into the rotor d-axis with no influence on the torque producing q-current. The demodulation of the responding high-frequency current signal is independent on machine parameters. Therefore the proposed method is independent on machine parameters and simply adaptable to different machines. As only the high frequency current has to be processed for position estimation, there is no additional hardware necessary besides that for standard drives with field oriented control.
