Sensorless Vector Control of PMSM Drive Using Fuzzy Logic, for EV/HEV Applications 2003-01-1207
A fuzzy logic technique is presented in this paper for sensorless speed and position identification of vector-controlled PWM inverterfed PMSM drives used in EV/HEV propulsion systems. Fuzzy logic is used to estimate the rotor speed and position. Operation of the drive is studied by numerical simulation. The performance for different drive conditions is also analyzed and the results are shown in the paper. Simulation results show that the proposed control method can be effectively used in controlling the PMSM drives with high performance for EV/HEV applications. It is found that the fuzzy logic system is reliable without using any speed or position sensor.
