VECTOR DRIVES

EASA June 2005

“REACHING NEW HEIGHTS”

Dave Ruehle and Bill Colton

- Define a Drive
- What is an Inverter Drive
- Why the Vector was Invented
- How Does a Vector Work
- What Types of Vectors Exist
- Typical Applications for Vector Drives

- Control Circuits
- Ancillary devices
- Couplings
- Feedback

- Parts and Pieces
- Prime Mover
- Mechanical Reduction(s)

- Terminology
- Scalar Drive
- VFD
- ASD
- VVVF
- VFI

- Speed Control Device
- Controls STATOR frequency
- Rotor changes speed with load
- Speed Changes dependant on motor slip

- NOT a current controller
- Only a current limiter

- Increase Application Efficiency
- Better Speed Control
- Better Torque and/or Force Control
- More Efficient Use of Power

- Performance Benefits
- Rotor Speed Regulation
- Lower Rotor Inertia Requirements
- Much Wider Speed Ranges
- Torque (or Force) Control
- Zero Speed Full Torque

- Convert AC Input to DC
- Filter the DC Power
- Create a digital output pulse train varying the frequency and voltage to Stator

- Establish the motor/system Model
- Stator Resistance
- Stator Inductance
- Rotor Resistance
- Rotor Inductance
- Air gap Losses
- Machine Losses and Inertia

- This is achieved in several fashions
- Manual – Programming Each Item
- Auto Tuning
- Program Basics
- Run Tests for Additional Items

- Adaptive Tuning
- Continuously Adjusting for Changing Conditions

- Now The System Model is Established

- Hardware
Comparison

- Monitoring the feedback
- Speed
- Current
- Back EMF

- Comparing to Established Model
- Adjust accordingly
- Amount of Deviation
- Motor/System Model

- Open Loop (Encoderless) Vector
- Establishes the Shaft Position from the current (amp) measurement
- Advantages
- Lower Initial Cost
- Reduced Wiring

- Disadvantages
- Not as responsive
- Limited Speed Range
- Difficulty with Impact Loads
- Temperature Changes can be Problematic

- Closed Loop Vector
- Monitors Shaft Position via Feedback
- Encoder
- Resolver

- Advantages
- Excellent Speed Regulation
- Full Torque at Zero Speed
- Systems Capabilities
- Very Responsive
- Higher Safety
- Easier to Tune

- Monitors Shaft Position via Feedback

- Closed Loop Vectors (Cont.)
- Disadvantages
- Additional Initial Cost
- More Wiring
- Motor Length
- Requires Better Wiring Practice

- Disadvantages
