Accurate and efficient control of electric motors is dependent on knowledge of motor parameters such as the resistance and the inductance of the winding. However, these parameters are often unavailable to the control designer because they are dependent on the motor design and may change due to environmental effects such as temperature. An accurate real-time method to determine the values of these unknown parameters can improve motor performance over the entire operating range. In this work, a parameter estimation technique based on a bank of Kalman filters is used to adaptively estimate the motor winding resistance. Simulation results for a 3.5 horsepower interior permanent magnet (IPM) synchronous motor operating at rated torque demonstrate that this technique may be used for real-time estimation of motor parameters.
