double feed induction machine (DFIM), sliding mode control (SMC), flux estimator, direct torque control (DTC), comparative study


Although the great advance in term of AC machine construction, control strategies are also necessary to be developed and improved continuously satisfying output torque/power. Hence the Doubly fed induction motor (DFIM)is widely used in industry, since it can operates in wide range of speed variation around the synchronous speed and the control of flux and torque is independent. In this paper, control of doubly fed induction motor (DFIM) has been investigated, which two control strategies have been studied and compared: the first strategy uses a sliding mode control (SMC); the second employs Direct Torque Control (DTC). Modeling of DFIM and details of both control strategies have been presented. the mathematical description of different basic dynamic models of the DFIM have been carried out The performances in terms of torque tracking, accuracy and robustness of both control techniques under normal and various speed and load conditions have been demonstrated and compared.
