Design And Implementation Of Speed Regulator For A PMSM Using Genetic Algorithm
Power electronics plays an important role in controlling the drives. Digital control technology has been rapidly developed for power electronics and electrical drives, and it has been the impetus to the widespread use of a permanent magnet synchronous motor in many industrial applications such as chip mount machines, semiconductor production machines, high-resolution computerized numerically controlled machine tools, robotics, and hard disk drives. A PMSM has low noise, low inertia, high torque-tocurrent ratio, high efficiency, robustness, and low maintenance cost. We propose a genetic algorithm (GA) based speed regulator system for a permanentmagnet synchronous motor. By using the GA the motor acceleration observer as well as a speed regulator is designed. In terms of linear matrix inequalities, sufficient conditions for the existence of the regulator and observer are derived. Simulation and experimental results are given to verify that the proposed digital control method can be successfully used for a PMSM under model parameter and load torque variations.
