A Machine Approach for Field Weakening of Permanent-Magnet Motors 2000-01-1549

The commonly known technology of field weakening for permanent-magnet (PM) motors is achieved by controlling the direct-axis current component through an inverter. Without using mechanical variation of the air gap, a new machine approach for field weakening of PM machines by direct control of air-gap fluxes is introduced. The demagnetization situation due to field weakening is not an issue with this new method. In fact, the PMs are strengthened at field weakening. The field-weakening ratio can reach 10:1 or higher. This technology is particularly useful for the PM generators and electric vehicle drives.
