Modern industrial production and manufacturing operations rely on an enormous number of devices known as “motors” - for the countless different operations of machine tools, robots and other specialized machines, these devices operate on objects in motion (generally in rotation) and apply a torque, a speed, or a position, each of which is determined by a high level control and decision-making system element.
This book provides a broad overview of conventional (extending occasionally to the non-conventional) synchronous motor control, from traditional methods based on regulation with inverter control using pulse width modulation (PWM) to some very promising new and advanced methods, such as direct control and feed forward methods.
The authors supply new information and applications in the fields of modeling and of real world control methods, often stressing the very important challenge of implementing controls without mechanical sensors.
