Permanent Magnet Synchronous and Brushless DC Motor Drives (Mechanical Engineering)by R. Krishnan
Synopses & Reviews
Despite two decades of massive strides in research and development on control strategies and their subsequent implementation, most books on permanent magnet motor drives still focus primarily on motor design, providing only elementary coverage of control and converters.
Addressing that gap with information that has largely been disseminated only in journals and at conferences, Permanent Magnet Synchronous and Brushless DC Motor Drives is a long-awaited comprehensive overview of power electronic converters for permanent magnet synchronous machines and control strategies for variable-speed operation. It introduces machines, power devices, inverters, and control, and addresses modeling, implementation, control strategies, and flux weakening operations, as well as parameter sensitivity, and rotor position sensorless control. Suitable for both industrial and academic audiences, this book also covers the simulation, low cost inverter topologies, and commutation torque ripple of PM brushless DC motor drives. Simulation of the motor drives system is illustrated with MATLAB codes in the text.
This book is divided into three parts fundamentals of PM synchronous and brushless dc machines, power devices, inverters; PM synchronous motor drives, and brushless dc motor drives. With regard to the power electronics associated with these drive systems, the author:
This reference is dedicated exclusively to PM ac machines, with a timely emphasis on control and standard, and low-cost converter topologies. Widely used for teaching at the doctoral level and for industrial audiences both in the U.S. and abroad, it will be a welcome addition to any engineer 's library.
Book News Annotation:
Krishnan (electrical and computer engineering, Virginia Tech) provides comprehensive coverage of power electronic converters for permanent magnet synchronous machines and control strategies for variable-speed operation. The book explores machines, power devices, inverters, and control, and also examines modeling, implementation, control strategies, flux-weakening operations, parameter sensitivity, and rotor position sensorless control. It is divided into three parts: fundamentals of permanent magnet synchronous and brushless dc machines, power devices, and inverters; permanent magnet synchronous motor drives; and brushless dc motor drives. The book is very technical, but clearly written. It will interest students in post- graduate level classes as well as industry professionals.

Unlike most books on machine drives, Permanent Magnet Synchronous and Brushless DC Motor Drives provides comprehensive treatment of control and low cost converter topologies. After an introduction to machines, power devices, inverters, and control, this book presents detailed coverage of pm synchronous machines, including modeling, implementation, control strategies, flux weakening operations, parameter sensitivity, sensorless control, and intelligent control applications. Subsequent chapters address the simulation, control, inverters topologies, and commutation torque ripple of pm brushless dc motor drives. MATLAB codes are also included throughout the text where appropriate.
