Simulation–Based Optimal Design of Induction Machine Drives
An electric motor drive is a power-electronic based system that is used to precisely control the position, speed or torque developed by motor. With the growing complexity of drive systems and the expansion of the use of fast acting power-electronic controllers, computer simulation models are used instead of an explicit mathematical description of a complex system. The aim of this research is to study the use of the simulation based design method for advanced motor drives. The major problem for simulation of a drive system performance is the presence of both fast and slow dynamics in its response that result in relatively long time simulations with a small time step. Moreover, the simulation-based optimal design has a repetitive nature. Therefore, the simulation-based optimal design of a drive system is massively time consuming and requires extensive computing resources. In this research reduced intensity computer models are used to overcome this problem.
