1.4 Organization of the Book
This book is comprised of nine different chapters dealing with different issues of High Performance AC Drives along with the Matlab/Simulink models. Chapter 1 discusses the components of AC drive system and presents an overview on High Performance Drives. The classification of electrical machines and their state-of-the-art control strategies, including field oriented control and direct torque control, are elaborated on. The persisting challenges for the industrial application of AC drives are further illustrated in Section 3. This chapter give an overall view of High Performance Drives.
Chapter 2 discusses the basic modeling procedures of different types of electrical machines. For the sake of completeness, DC machine modeling is presented in Section 2.2, followed by the modeling of the squirrel cage induction machine, which is presented based on the space vector approach. The obtained dynamic model is then converted into a per unit system for further simulation and generalization of this approach. This is followed by the modeling of double-fed induction machine and permanent magnet synchronous machine. The simulation using Matlab/Simulink is also presented.
Chapter 3 describes the Pulse Width Modulation control of DC-AC converter system. The basic modeling of a two-level inverter based on the space vector approach is discussed, followed by different PWM approaches such as carrier-based sinusoidal PWM, harmonic injection schemes, offset addition methods, ...
