Abstract

Optimization techniques are increasingly used in research to improve the control of three-phase induction motor (TIM). Indirect field-oriented control (IFOC) scheme is employed to improve the efficiency and enhance the performance of variable speed control of TIM drives. The space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) technique is used for switching signals in a three-phase bridge inverter to minimize harmonics in the output signals of the inverter. In this paper, a novel scheme based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is proposed to improve the variable speed control of IFOC in TIM. The PSO algorithm is used to search the best values of parameters of proportional-integral (PI) controller (proportional gain (kp) and integral gain (ki)) for each speed controller and voltage controller to improve the speed response for TIM. An optimal PI controller-based objective function is also used to tune and minimize the mean square error (MSE). Results of all tests verified the robustness of the PSO-PI controller for speed response in terms of damping capability, fast settling time, steady state error, and transient responses under different conditions of mechanical load and speed.
