Abstract

In this article, a dual-pulse mode control of a high-speed doubly salient electromagnetic machine (DSEM) for efficiency improvement over a wide speed range is investigated and implemented. The dual-pulse mode control method and operation principle are introduced. The influence of excitation angles and field current on the operation performance is analyzed by finite-element method based on the back electromotive force (EMF) and inductance characteristics. The loss distribution for various speed and load torque requirement is attained, and the control parameters are optimized. The excitation angle can reduce the back EMF at high speed through transformer EMF and flux-weakening armature reaction. A prototype of 12/8-pole DSEM drive system is developed and dual-pulse mode control in high-speed operation under low dc-link voltage is implemented. Both the simulated and measured results show that the torque capacity of the DSEM is improved and the loss is reduced over a wide speed range.
