Description

The Induction Motor block implements a three-phase induction motor. The block uses the three-phase input voltages to regulate the individual phase currents, allowing control of the motor torque or speed.

By default, the block sets the Simulation Type parameter to Continuous to use a continuous sample time during simulation. If you want to generate code for fixed-step double- and single-precision targets, considering setting the parameter to Discrete. Then specify a Sample Time, Ts parameter.

Three-Phase Sinusoidal Model Electrical System

The block implements equations that are expressed in a stationary rotor reference (qd) frame. The d-axis aligns with the a-axis. All quantities in the rotor reference frame are referred to the stator.

The block uses these equations to calculate the electrical speed (ωem) and slip speed (ωslip).

ωem=Pωmωslip= ωsynωem

To calculate the dq rotor electrical speed with respect to the rotor A-axis (dA), the block uses the difference between the stator a-axis (da) speed and slip speed:

ωdA= ωda ωem

To simplify the equations for the flux, voltage, and current transformations, the block uses a stationary reference frame:

ωda=0ωdA=ωem
