Squirrel-cage induction motor parameter estimation using a variable frequency test
Rights accessOpen Access
This paper presents amethod for squirrel-cage induction motor parameter estimation using a phase-to-phase standstill variable frequency test. The measured resistance and reactance at different frequencies are the data of the minimization error function to be minimized for single-and double-cage model parameters estimation. It is observed that the single-cage model is unable to fit the measured data for frequencies above several tenths of Hertz, whereas the double-cage model fits the measured data accurately in all the frequency ranges (from 0 to 150 Hz). The single-and double-cage estimated parameters are validated by comparison with data from two additional tests: 1) steady-state torque and current measurement test at different speeds; and 2) dynamic free-acceleration test. Again, the agreement between measured and predicted torque (in the first test) and current (in both tests) is satisfactory only for the double-cage model.
