Active Torque Control, Induction Machine, Luenberger based observer, Mechanical Parameters-Free control


An online active torque pulsation reduction strategy for rotational systems with position-dependent loading torque (such as crankshaft-based loads) driven by grid-connected induction machines is proposed. The control strategy requires system speed and induction machine torque information. No stiff parameters are necessary for the closed-loop control strategy. The theoretical principle is simulated and experimentally validated.
