Sensorless speed control for double-sided linear induction motor applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this work, a flux and speed observer for double-sided linear induction motor applications is presented and experimentally validated. More in detail, from a Double-Sided Linear Induction Motor (DLIM) prototype, the complete modelling and the determination of the related parameters are here reported. Furthermore, the equations for a d-flux and q-flux observer are conceived and several simulation tests are performed. From the good agreements between the trends over time of the speed estimated by the observer and the simulated one, it can be stated that the observer is well designed. Moreover, in order to experimentally validate the proposed observer, a test bench is set-up for the DLIM/observer system. The experimental results carried out through means of a test bench have shown good agreement between measured and estimated speed, validating the proposed system.
