Abstract

This paper describes a brushless dc (BLDC) drive with a single sided matrix converter (SSMC) for an electrohydrostatic actuation system in aerospace application. The use of an SSMC with a BLDC motor is novel and is used to achieve operation without a microprocessor. A simple hysteresis current control strategy is implemented to control motor torque. The multiphase SSMC provides high reliability and fault tolerance with the penalty of more power devices. A five-phase SSMC prototype is built. The experiment results are presented to verify the drive performance.
