ACIM Torque Estimator

Estimate electromechanical torque and power

  • Library:
  • Motor Control Blockset / Controls / Control Reference

Description

The ACIM Torque Estimator block generates electromechanical torque and power estimates for an induction motor. The block outputs the mathematically computed electromechanical torque for constant motor parameters. To measure an accurate torque value, we recommend that you use a physical sensor.

The block accepts feedback values of d- and q-axis stator current and mechanical speed as inputs.

Equations

If you select Per-Unit (PU) in the Input units parameter, the block converts the inputs to SI units before performing any computation. After calculating the output, the block converts the output back to per unit values.

These equations describe the computation of electromechanical torque and power estimates by the block.

where:

  • p is the number of pole pairs available in the motor.

  • Lm is the magnetizing inductance of the motor (Henry).

  • Lr is the rotor inductance (Henry).

  • λrd is the d-axis flux linkage of the rotor (Weber).

  • isq is the stator q-axis current (Amperes).

  • ωm is the mechanical speed of the rotor (Radians/ sec).
