Finite control set model predictive direct current control strategy with constraints applying to drive three-phase induction motor

Anmar Kh. Ali, Riyadh G. Omar


In this, work the finite control set (FCS) model predictive direct current control strategy with constraints, is applied to drive three-phase induction motor (IM) using the well-known field-oriented control. As a modern algorithm approach of control, this kind of algorithm decides the suitable switching combination that brings the error between the desired command currents and the predicated currents, as low as possible, according to the process of optimization. The suggested algorithm simulates the constraints of maximum allowable current and the accepted deviation, between the desired command and actual currents. The new constraints produce an improvement in system performance, with the predefined error threshold. This can be applied by avoiding the switching combination that exceeds the limited values. The additional constraints are more suitable for loads that require minimum distortion in harmonic and offer protection from maximum allowable currents. This approach is valuable especially in electrical vehicle (EV) applications since its result offers more reliable system performance with low total harmonics distortion (THD), low motor torque ripple, and better speed tracking.
