Many sensorless vector control systems have been proposed to increase the reliability and to reduce costs of the systems. However the parameters of an induction machine are changed by the temperature, the estimated speed may be incorrect value. When a constant torque drive system is constructed by a sensorless system and a current source inverter (CSI), the accuracy of the estimated speed influenced directly the response of the torque.
In this paper, a direct field oriented control system is constructed by the flux observer which is low sensitivity to the rotor resistance variation and a proposed speed estimation scheme in a torque control system driven by a CSI. We compared experimental results by a voltage source inverter system and by the CSI system which is adopted our sensorless vector control scheme. At a lower speed condition, the system identifies the stator resistance, and we can estimate rotor speed correctly. Then the CSI system drives stably the induction machine without the speed sensor in a lower speed condition, and it can be applied to the constant torque drive systems.
