elec_calculateFluxPartialDerivatives

Calculate flux partial derivatives for FEM-Parameterized PMSM block

Syntax

[dFdA,dFdB,dFdC,dFdX] = elec_calculateFluxPartialDerivatives(A,B,C,X,F)
[dFdA,dFdB,dFdC,dFdX,D,Q] = elec_calculateFluxPartialDerivatives(A,B,C,X,F)

Description

example

[dFdA,dFdB,dFdC,dFdX] = elec_calculateFluxPartialDerivatives(A,B,C,X,F) calculates the partial derivatives from flux linkage. For improved numerical performance, the FEM-Parameterized PMSM block works with flux linkage partial derivatives, rather than directly with flux linkage. If your finite-element motor design tool does not have an option to output partial derivatives, then you can use this function to calculate the partial derivatives from the flux linkage. The flux linkage F must be a four-dimensional matrix with the first three dimensions corresponding to the A, B, and C phase currents, and the fourth dimension corresponding to the rotor angle X. The function returns four-dimensional matrices for the four partial derivatives. Use this syntax in conjunction with the 4-D Data variant of the block.

example

[dFdA,dFdB,dFdC,dFdX,D,Q] = elec_calculateFluxPartialDerivatives(A,B,C,X,F) returns two additional output arguments corresponding to d-axis and q-axis currents, respectively. In this case, the four partial derivatives are three-dimensional, the first two dimensions corresponding to the d-axis and q-axis currents, and the third dimension corresponding to the rotor angle. Use this syntax in conjunction with the 3-D Data variant of the block.

Suppose F is a four-dimensional matrix containing flux linkage data, exported by your finite-element motor design tool. The matrix dimensions correspond to the three phase currents and the rotor angle, respectively. The data is cyclical in the fourth dimension, corresponding to the rotor angle.

Either directly import or recreate the current vectors. For example, if recreating a current vector with evenly spaced values between -250 and 250 A and 5 A increments, then:

iA = linspace(-250,250,5);
iB = iA;
iC = iA;

Import the rotor angle vector or recreate it based on the number of pole pairs.

X = pi/180*linspace(0,360/N,180/N+1);

Calculate the flux linkage partial derivatives.

[dFdA,dFdB,dFdC,dFdX] = elec_calculateFluxPartialDerivatives(iA,iB,iC,X,F);

The function returns four 4-D matrices for the flux linkage partial derivatives. The four matrices correspond to the three phase currents and the rotor angle, respectively. The matrix dimensions also correspond to the three phase currents and the rotor angle.

The function returns four 3-D matrices for the flux linkage partial derivatives and two vectors for the d-axis and q-axis current values. The four matrices correspond to the three phase currents and the rotor angle, respectively. The matrix dimensions correspond to the d-axis and q-axis currents and the rotor angle.

Algorithms

The function calculates partial derivatives using Akima splines, the same method that is used for smooth interpolation in the Simscape™ language tablelookup function. For more information, see Smooth Interpolation Algorithm (Simscape). Akima splines are suitable for estimating partial derivatives due to their smooth nature and tendency not to introduce local gradient reversals.
