  • Patent number: 10056857
    Abstract: A motor control system and associated method includes a transform component configured to receive current values associated with a motor being driven by the motor control system, and output rotating coordinate system values representing a flux generating component and a torque generating component of a current space vector. The motor control system and method further includes a control component configured to receive the flux generating component and the torque generating component of the current space vector, and generate motor control signals for driving the motor by performing a Cartesian to polar transform to obtain values associated with a rotating coordinate system followed by an angle addition to convert the rotating coordinate system values to values of a stationary coordinate system.

  • Patent number: 9479084
    Abstract: A method of performing space vector modulation for PWM control for creating AC waveforms includes generating and sampling a reference signal to generate reference samples and performing a reference vector approximation to synthesize a reference vector associated with at least one of the reference samples. The reference vector approximation employs active vectors, one or more zero vectors, and one or more pseudo zero vectors in the formation thereof. Another method of performing space vector modulation (SVM) includes generating a reference signal and sampling the reference signal at a sampling frequency to generate a plurality of reference samples. The method also includes performing a reference vector approximation to synthesize a reference vector associated with at least one of the reference samples, wherein the reference vector approximation has a first portion that employs two adjacent active vectors and a remaining portion that employs two non-adjacent active vectors in the formation thereof.
