Analysis and Prototype Development of a Drive System and Novel Control Algorithm for Direct Drive Brushless Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors

Brushless permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) are widely used in many applications including automations, instrumentation, propulsion, vehicular systems, etc. This project is focused on research and development of a modified drive system and novel control algorithms for PMSMs that could improve efficiency and torque performance compared to conventional methods. Collaboration with the University of British Columbia (UBC) would provide the benefits to the Partner organization and to Canada as it is anticipated that new knowledge and technology have the potential for subsequent commercialisation. Canada has a growing high-tech sector particularly related to energy, manufacturing, mining and processing industries, robotics and industrial automation, etc., where the use of brushless PMSMs is rapidly increasing. Therefore, developing technologies that can even slightly improve the operation and efficiency of such motors can have a very significant and long-lasting impact on all devices and systems with such motors as well as on their energy efficiency and reliability.
