One of the approaches is to increase the number of voltage vectors applied in a sampling period, using some sorts of pulse width modulation (PWM). Among the various techniques, a simpler one is to use two voltage vectors: a nonzero one, applied for a portion of the sampling period, and the null vector for the rest. The duty ratio must be calculated each sample period, and by varying it between its intense values, it is possible to apply more voltage levels to the motor, according to the desired torque variation. In [5], an analytical online algorithm calculates the optimum duty ratio each sampling period, by using a torque ripple minimization condition, which is based on ripple equations. However, this algorithm requires high computational effort and additional motor parameters to be known. In [6] the duty ratio value is provided by a new fuzzy logic module, whose inputs are the stator flux position, the electromagnetic torque and an input defining the motor operating point, given by the speed and the torque values. This algorithm involves expert knowledge and needs the rotor speed This paper proposes a simple solution for reducing the torque ripple in classical Direct Torque Control, while preserving the good dynamic and structural simplicity of this scheme. The proposed method consists in the modulation of the nonzero voltage vector duration…show more content…
The instantaneous values of the stator flux and torque are calculated from stator variable by using a closed loop estimator [1]. Stator flux and torque can be controlled directly and independently by properly selecting the inverter switching configuration.
