Stability analysis of a mono inverter dual sensorless motors system

Sonu Mathews Varghese



When a single brush-less dc motor is fed by an inverter with a sensor-less algorithm embedded in the switching controller, the system exhibits a linear and stable output in terms of the speed and torque. However, with two motors modulated by the same inverter, the system is unstable and rendered useless for a steady application, unless provided with some resistive damping on the supply lines. The project discusses and analysis the stability of such a system through simulations and hardware demonstrations and also will discuss a method to derive the values of these damping.
