  • Publication number: 20210162871
    Abstract: An inverter controller includes a processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to obtain a command rotation speed transmitted repeatedly from outside of the inverter controller, count a command obtaining interval that is a period from a point in time where an old command rotation speed was obtained to a point in time where a new command rotation speed is obtained, set a target acceleration of the electric motor when the command rotation speed has been obtained, and control the inverter circuit such that the electric motor rotates at the set target acceleration. The processing circuitry is configured to calculate a command acceleration based on the counted command obtaining interval and the new command rotation speed, the command acceleration being set as the target acceleration.

  • Patent number: 10458420
    Abstract: The control section controls the electric motor to be driven such that the number of revolutions becomes equal to the target number of revolutions. If the control section sets the target number of revolutions to a number of revolutions of the electric motor requested by another control section, the control section changes the number of revolutions of the electric motor at an increase rate lower than or equal to the upper limit value of the increase rate or at a decrease rate lower than or equal to the upper limit value of the decrease rate. If the control section sets the target number of revolutions to a number-of-revolutions limit value, which is determined based on the voltage of a vehicle battery, the control section is able to decrease the number of revolutions of the electric motor at a decrease rate exceeding the upper limit value.
