The last two decades have witnessed spectacular developments in the technologies of power electronics and microprocessors. Due to these developments, sophisticated power converters and digital signal processors (DSP) have become available, making possible the use of high performance AC drives in widespread applications. For this goal to be fully realized, one should get as much benefit as possible from the considerable progress made in the field of control theory. Three decades of intensive research activity has resulted in a proliferation of nonlinear control methods, published in hundreds of journal and conference papers. Of course, not all nonlinear control methods apply to AC motors, but a significant fraction does. The aim of this monograph is to make available to the scientific community a resource reflecting the wide variety of control problems posed by AC motors and drawing up the state of the art of the corresponding control methods for design, analysis, and implementation. In this respect, special focus is made on the topics of sensorless nonlinear observers, adaptive and robust nonlinear controllers, output-feedback controllers, fault detection and isolation algorithms, and fault-tolerant controllers. The most significant developments in these topics, and their applications to AC motor control, are described in this book, as well as some new research topics. Most of the concepts and methods are presented by their own inventors. The book is intended for a wide variety of readers, including academia and industry researchers, graduate students and their professors, engineers, and practitioners. Although it includes many aspects of the theory, it is nonetheless beneficial to practitioners who will be able to use the methods without necessarily understanding every single detail of the theory. It will also be useful for newcomers to research in the field of AC motor control. For students and newcomers, the main prerequisites are undergraduate courses on linear and nonlinear system control, on electric machines, and on power electronics. Each chapter includes an introduction and an individual reference list, and the different chapters are written in a way that makes them readable independently from each other.
