  • Patent number: 10862416
    Abstract: In order to achieve the energy efficiency class IE4 defined in the IEC standard 60034, it is necessary to operate permanently excited synchronous machines directly on the mains. Because this is not readily possible, soft start devices may be considered as cost-efficient solutions. A method is described by which the initial rotor angle is defined, which can then be used by an encoderless start process. The fundamental concept is based on energizing in a defined direction. This is achieved in that solely two actuator phases are fired. A current space vector is thereby applied to the machine in a fixed direction and the machine is then aligned thereto. The successful alignment and a blocked motor can thus be recognized based on the profile of the stator current space vector.
