Simulink model adjustments

Hello again!

As we mentioned before, we’ve chosen one of the asynchronous machine models.

The model needed a few adjustments.

Model parameters:
% Example 3-1 File Name EX3_1.m
% Calculation of Initial Conditions
% Induction Motor Parameters
Xls=5.25; %default: 5.25
Xlr=4.57; %default: 4.57
Xm=139; %default: 139
p=2; %default: 4

% Steady State Operating Condition
f=66.7; VLLrms= f * 7.6 * sqrt(3/2); s=0.0172; % Variable Voltage
f=66.7; VLLrms= 460; s=0.0172; % Fixed Voltage
Wsyn=2*pi*f; % synchronous speed in electrical rad/s
Wm=(1-s)*Wsyn; % rotor speed in electrical rad/s

The first test we performed was just to run it and see some behavior at high-speed.

We have two options in voltage control: constant voltage (u = 380 V) and variable voltage (u = f*(380/50)).

 If we use variable voltage, the speed growths sharply, but at the start of the modulation the torque is very high and at the huge speed (140k rpm), it can reach thousands.

If we use constant voltage, the speed growths gradually and the torque has much fewer numbers. Also, we have to wait more time to reach the desired speed. But to achieve such results we also need to change the reactance.

Variable voltage 

The formula was calculated by default state in which the voltage equals 380 V with frequency 50 Hz. By dividing, we got a coefficient of 7.6 (380/50).

Fixed Voltage

Conclusion of the results is – we can use only Fixed voltage due to unacceptable high variable voltage at very high speed.

Also, we need to come up with a solution for materials for coils, because as you can see, decreasing reluctance leads to the system becoming stable much faster.
