## FOUR-QUADRANTS OF THE TORQUE-SPEED PLANE

Assumption, Flux f is kept constant. The motor is initially driving a load at a speed of m.

Generated energy must be somehow absorbed by the source of vt or dissipated in a resistor. During breaking operation, (please go next slide)

By changing the terminal voltage polarity we can reverse the direction of rotation. Therefore, a dc motor can be operated in either direction and its electromagnetic torque can be reversed for breaking, as shown in four quadrants of the torque-speed plane.

When power factor loss in the motor Motor efficiency , because (with the assumption of f is constant. If there ripple in current there will be ripple in instantaneous electromagnetic torque hence fluctuation in speed. Se we need to reduce ripple in armature current. High frequency ripple in torque will result in smaller speed fluctuation, as compare with a low frequency torque ripple of the same magnitude.

## POWER ELECTRONIC CONVERTER

Power electronic converter supplying a dc motor should have following characteristics. Should allow both its output voltage and current to reverse in order to allow fourquadrant operation. Should be able to operate in a currentcontrolled mode by holding the current at its maximum acceptable value during fast acceleration and deceleration. To ensure the accurate control of position, the average output of them should vary with its control input, independent of the load on the motor.

22

## POWER ELECTRONIC CONVERTER CONT...

To minimize the fluctuation in torque and speed of the motor, converter should have good form factor. The converter output should respond as quickly as possible to its control input.

## RIPPLE IN ARMATURE CURRENT

If the inertia of the motor is sufficient enough, we can assume that, instantaneous speed at the steady-sate operation is constant.

Diode rectifier: To rectify line frequency ac input Filter capacitor: To smooth output of rectifier bridge Energy absorption circuit: To prevent the filter capacitor voltage from becoming large in case of braking of the dc motor. If we ignore the effect of blanking time, the average voltage output of the converter varies linearly with the input control voltage, independent of the load.

## From equation (29) and (30),

Therefore La and fs must be selected very carefully. La can be increased by adding an external inductor in the series with the motor armature.

## SELECTION OF SERVO DRIVE PARAMETERS

Ripple in the armature current, which causes torque ripple and additional armature heating, is proportional to La/fs. The dead zone in the transfer function of the converter, which degrades the servo performance, is proportional to . Switching loss in the converter are proportional to .

34

Response time to speed and torque command is not critical. Can be used either; 1. Switch-mode dc-dc converters 2. Line frequency controlled converters

35

36

## SWITCH-MODE DC-DC CONVERTER CONT...

If the speed does not have to reverse but breaking is needed, then the two-quadrant converter can be used. Only single switch is on at a given time. Which keep the output voltage independent of the direction of ia. We can reverse the armature current. That negative Ia corresponding to breaking mode of operation. At the breaking mode, power flows from the dc motor to Vd.

37

## SWITCH-MODE DC-DC CONVERTER CONT...

We can control magnitude of the output voltage Vt. But it always remaining unipolar. Since ia flow in either direction, it will not become discontinuous for two-quadrant operation.

38

## SWITCH-MODE DC-DC CONVERTER CONT...

We can use single-quardrant operation where the speed remaining unidirectional and breaking is not required.

39

## LINE-FREQUENCY CONTROLLED CONVERTERS

Also called phase-controlled converters. There exist a armature ripple that is a multiple of 50 Hz line frequency. Disadvantage: the longer dead time in responding to the changes in the speed control signal.

40

## LINE-FREQUENCY CONTROLLED CONVERTERS CONT...

Once a thyristor or pair of thyristors is triggered on bellow circuit, the delay angle that controls the controller output voltage applied to the motor terminal cannot be increased for a potion of 50Hz cycle. Although output of the power converter can reverse polarity , the current through the converter is unidirectional.

41

## LINE-FREQUENCY CONTROLLED CONVERTERS CONT...

When we need regenerative breaking, two backto-back connected thyriastor converter can be used.

42

## LINE-FREQUENCY CONTROLLED CONVERTERS CONT...

We can make four-quadrant operation using single phase control converter together with two pair of contactors. Motor operation: M1 and M2 are closed and R1 and R2 are opened. Inverter mode: M1 and M2 are opened and R1 and R2 are closed.

43

## EFFECT OF DISCONTINUOUS ARMATURE CURRENT

Output current of the motor can be discontinuous at light on the motor if we use following power converter to control the motor, 1. The line-frequency phase-controlled converter, 2. The single-quadrant step-down switch-mode dc-dc motor. Because of the discontinuous in output current; output voltage increases then motor speed increases for the fixed control voltage vcontrol and delay angle .

46

## OPEN LOOP CONTROL CONT...

No feedback path. Control command generated by comparing the driver output with its desired value. e.g.: Temperature in capacity modulated heat pump. d/dt limiter; Allows speed command to change slowly. So rotor current does not exceed its rating. Work as protective device, when current exceed its rated value, the controller shut the drive off. d/dt limit can be adjustable to match the motorload inertia.
