Abstract: This paper presents an improved method of stator angular (frequency) θs estimation for sensorless indirect oriented field control of induction motors based on a phase locked loop (PLL). A PLL is used to estimate the stator voltage angular frequency taking account only the reference speed. A reduced-order observer is used to estimate speed and rotor flux. Extensive simulation and experimental tests confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Keywords: induction motors; phase locked loop; PLL; indirect field oriented control; IFOC; reduced-order observer; sensorless control; induction motor drives; stator voltage angular frequency; speed; rotor flux.
