The AC Induction Motor (ACIM) is the workhorse of the motor world. It is the most common motor type, used in everything from consumer products to heavy industry. Its simple design with no brushes makes it highly reliable and allows it to be manufactured at a low cost. However, it is less efficient than other motors like the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM), which is partially related to the heat generation in the rotor windings. The open-loop Voltage/frequency (V/f) drive technique is traditionally used to control ACIMs, and it can be implemented on simple 8-bit PIC® and AVR® microcontrollers (MCUs). This drive technique is not very efficient, so for applications that need higher efficiency, an advanced control solution like Field-Oriented Control (FOC) can be applied. Implementing this advanced control requires high-performance dsPIC33 Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) or 32-bit PIC32MK or SAM MCUs.

How an ACIM Works


The ACIM, sometimes called a squirrel cage motor, is one of the most popular motors used in consumer and industrial applications. Induction machines are by far the largest group of all industrial electrical machines, converting approximately 70-80% of all electrical energy into mechanical form. They have a very robust rotor construction, which makes them suitable for high-speed applications. With proper design, they have good overloading and field weakening characteristics.

The ACIM is comprised of a simple cage-like rotor and a stator containing three windings. The changing field produced by the AC line current in the stator induces current in the rotor which interacts with the field and causes the rotor to rotate. The rotor does not have any moving contacts, which eliminates sparking.

Implementing ACIM Control


How It Works


The AICM is comprised of a simple cage-like rotor and a stator containing three windings. The changing field produced by the AC line current in the stator induces a current in the rotor which interacts with the field and causes the rotor to rotate. No brushes are necessary in this design. The base speed of the AC motor is determined by the number of poles built into the stator windings and the frequency of the AC input voltage. Variable speed control of an AC motor can be accomplished by increasing or decreasing the input frequency.

A load on the motor causes the motor to slip in proportion to the load. The slip occurs when the rotor turns at a slower speed than the rotating field produced by the stator. This slip is responsible for energizing the rotor. The ACIM is available in single-phase and three-phase versions. A three-phase ACIM is usually the best choice for variable-speed applications.

Microcontroller Features for ACIM Control


Input Digital or analog input signals for speed, frequency position, direction
Capture/Compare/Pulse-Width Modulation (CCP) Generation of space vector PWMs for three-phase inverter and speed sensing using input capture
Comparators Overcurrent detection and protection
Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) Measurement of phase current for torque control and for sensorless control, measurement of voltage for inverter and measurement of analog input signals
Quadrature Encoding Interface (QEI) Optical encoder interfacing for position sensing
Communication Peripherals (I2C, SPI, CAN) Torque, speed, position and/or direction information exchange

ACIM Control Considerations:


  • Smooth control at low speeds
  • Efficient control at high speeds
  • Variable speed and torque control using complex vector control
  • Eliminate rotor position sensor using sensorless vector control strategies
  • Must know rotor position (velocity) for slip and vector control
  • Sensorless control does not work at low motor speeds

FPGAs for Multi-Axis Motor Control


Build safe and reliable multi-axis deterministic motor control on a single System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGA. FPGAs provide many advantages for motor control applications, including:

  • Compact solution to save board space and reduce product size
  • Motor speeds exceeding 100,000 RPM for sensorless FOC
  • Low latency of 1μs for FOC loop from ADC measurement to PWM generation allows switching frequencies up to 500 kHz.
  • Design flexibility with modular IP suite
  • Advanced safety features such as rotor slip, overload detection and overcurrent protection
  • SoC integration of system functions reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
