Abstract

This paper presents a sensorless system drive on primary flux oriented control (PFOC) and secondary flux oriented control (SFOC) for the linear induction motor (LIM) with taking into account end effect. Extended kalman filter (EKF) is applied to estimate LIM speed by measuring motor voltages and currents. In order to achieve desirable dynamic and robustness motor performance instead of traditional PI controller, a fuzzy PI controller is used for speed regulation in LIM vector control. The accuracy and validity of fuzzy PI controller operation are investigated and evaluated and its results are compared with traditional PI controller. Transient and steady state responses of proposed controller under load thrust variations and speed command are studied. Also characteristics and performances of primary flux oriented control (PFOC) and secondary flux oriented control (SFOC) for the linear induction motor are compared with each other. In order to evaluate the proposed method, simulations are performed in MATLAB/SIMULINK. Results show that the fuzzy PI controller has more excellent performance than the traditional PI controller and also PFOC has better performance than SFOC, because SFOC depend on rotor resistance. EKF properly estimate motor speed by measuring motor voltages and currents and therefore speed sensor can be eliminated
