Abstract
In this proposal, closed-loop control techniques are developed to eliminate torque harmonics produced by an SRM. To provide vibratory feedback, a piezoelectric-based sensor is incorporated into an SRM drive system to sense the torque harmonics in real time. The advantages of using a piezoelectric-based sensor include its flexibility in terms of placement, its extremely low cost, its durability and ability to withstand harsh conditions, and the straightforward incorporation into the existing drive systems.
