PMSM Torque-speed-efficiency map evaluation from parameter estimation based on the stand still test
Rights accessOpen Access
During the last decades, a wide variety of methods to estimate permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) performance have been developed. These methodologies have several advantages over conventional procedures, saving time and economic costs. This paper presents a new methodology to estimate the PMSM torque-speed-efficiency map based on the blocked rotor test using a single-phase voltage source. The methodology identifies the stator flux linkage depending on the current magnitude and angle while providing a detailed estimation of the iron losses. The torque-speed-efficiency map provides detailed information of the motor efficiency along its operating region, including the nominal conditions and the maximum power envelope. The proposed methodology does not require knowing the geometry of the machine to perform any load test, and it also avoids using expensive measurement devices and a complex experimental setup. Moreover, the proposed method allows the PMSM performance to be reproduced by applying different control strategies, which is useful when testing different drives. The method does not require the application of any optimization algorithm, thus simplifying and speeding up the process to determine the performance. Experimental validation is carried out by comparing motor performances obtained through the proposed method with those obtained by means of a conventional experimental method and against finite element analysis (FEA).
