Improved Sensorless Direct Torque Control of Induction Motor Using Fuzzy Logic and Neural Network Based Duty Ratio Controller

Sudheer H, Kodad SF, Sarvesh B


This paper presents improvements in Direct Torque control of an induction motor using Fuzzy logic with Fuzzy logic and neural network based duty ratio controller. The conventional DTC (CDTC) of induction motor suffers from major drawbacks like high torque and flux ripples and poor transient response. Torque and flux ripples are reduced by replacing hysteresis controller and switching table with Fuzzy logic switching controller (FDTC). In FDTC the selected switching vector is applied for the complete switching time period. The FDTC steady state performance can be improved by using duty ratio controller, the selected switching vector is applied only for the time determined by the duty ratio (δ) and for the remaining time period zero switching vector is applied. The selection of duty ratio using Fuzzy logic and neural networks is projected in this paper. The effectiveness proposed methods are evaluated using simulation by Matlab/Simulink.
