Motion sensorless IPMSM control using linear moving horizon estimation with luenberger observer state feedback
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018

This paper presents an investigation of motion sensorless control based on the frame work of moving horizon estimation (MHE), validated experimentally with a rear axle electrical drive unit used in automotive applications. Both steady-state performance and dynamic performance, including speed reversal, are investigated. In addition, a well-established active flux-based observer is implemented and referenced to objectively evaluate the proposed MHE. It is shown that the proposed solution is feasible, that the associated dynamic optimization problem can be solved in real time, while exploiting the attractiveness of the approach to obtain highly accurate estimates. Moreover, the absence of ${d}$-axis flux in the proposed solution is considered a significant strength. Conclusively, it turns the proposed solution into a universal solution for any synchronous motor, regardless of whether a PM, PM-assisted, or reluctance motor is used, nondependent on the presence of magnetic saliency.
