INTRODUCTION E l e c t r i c a l motors with speed co n t r o l are required f or many a p p l i c a t i o n s , such as paper and steel" m i l l d r i v e s . D.C. and A.C. commutator motors are often used f o r such purposes. However!',' mechanical commutators and t h e i r s p e c i a l winding connections are major disadvantages because of maintenance and s e r v i c i n g . Synchronous and induction motors, on the other hand,do not require commutators. But a synchronous motor operates at a fi x e d speed, the synchronous speed, and an induction motor operates at speeds s l i g h t l y lower than the synchronous speed. Their speed can be c o n t r o l l e d over a wide range only by changing the source s u p p l i e s . Thyratrons and mercury arc r e c t i f i e r s were used to control the speed of e l e c t r i c a l motors, known as Thyratron motors (1) or K o l l e c t o r l o s e r Stromrichtermotoren (2). With the development of s i l i c o n c o n t r o l l e d r e c t i f i e r s (SCRs), or t h y r i s t o r s , the speed co n t r o l of A.C. motors i s being re-examined. Methods f o r c o n t r o l l i n g the speed of A.C. motors involve v a r i a t i o n of the supply frequency by means of SCRs using converter-inverter schemes. Krause, e t . a l . (3), (4), (5) used t h i s arrangement to obtain a variable-frequency supply to drive an induction motor, and M i y a - i r i , e t . a l . (6) and Lipo, e t . a l . (7), (8) operated a synchronous motor i n a s i m i l a r manner. M i y a - i r i , e t . a l . (9), (10) and Sato (11) also reported using i n v e r t e r s and D.C. power supplies to drive synchronous motors. Tsuchiya, e t . a l . (12) operated a synchronous motor with a cyclo-converter, which converts A.C. at one frequency to A.C. at some other frequency. This thesis p r o j e c t examines the motor configuration shown i n F i g . 1.1, which was o r i g i n a l l y tested by Okada at Doshisha U n i v e r s i t y . Three Three Phase Power Supply Q O O 6 o 6 CD 6 JO lQ Co Nj o CO o Co 'Co Q icj Co 33 CD 3 SCRs, delta-connected, are inse r t e d i n the neutral point of the three-phase armature winding of the synchronous motor. The p r i n c i p l e of t h i s motor i s as follows: F i r i n g SCR^, the magnetic f i e l d caused by the armature current i s approximately i n the d i r e c t i o n from A towards B. With SCR^ conducting, SCR 2 i s f i r e d so that the d i r e c t i o n of the magnetic f i e l d rotates clockwise to a l i g n i t s e l f i n a d i r e c t i o n from A towards a p o s i t i o n somewhere between B and C. SCR^ then extinguishes and only SCR2 remains conducting. The magnetic f i e l d produced by the armature current i s then i n the d i r e c t i o n from B towards C. Now the magnetic f i e l d r e s u l t i n g from the armature current has rotated about 120 degrees from the o r i g i n a l d i r e c t i o n . Repeating the same procedure f o r SCR 2 and SCR^, and so on, the set of SCRs provides a r o t a t i n g magnetic f i e l d . The speed of the r o t a t i n g magnetic f i e l d may be co n t r o l l e d by f i r i n g these SCRs i n the above sequence with pulses derived from the p o s i t i o n and speed of the r o t o r . In t h i s t h e s i s , the delta-connected SCRs i n a three-phase A.C. c i r c u i t (13) i s analyzed using Take-uchi's <j>-function method (14). A balanced three-phase c i r c u i t without mutual coupling i s assumed. Experimental v e r i f i c a t i o n of the analysis i s given. The analysis i s extended i n Chapter 3 to the motor configuration of F i g . 1.1. The d e s c r i p t i o n of the d e t a i l e d experimental set up of the system, the test r e s u l t s and comparison with a n a l y t i c a l r e s u l t s are given i n Chapter 4. 2. CHARACTERISTICS OF THREE-PHASE DELTA-CONNECTED SCRs 2.1 Introduction Before the motor configuration of F i g . 1.1 i s analyzed, we s h a l l i n v e s t i g a t e the c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of three-phase delta-connected SCRs in s e r t e d i n the n e u t r a l point of a balanced three-phase star-connected load as shown i n F i g . 2.1. C o B o 1 F i g . 2.1 Three-phase delta-connected SCRs The gate pulses to the SCRs are synchronized with the.supply frequency. The f i r i n g angle, a, and the e x t i n c t i o n angle, g , f o r each SCR are measured from the n e g a t i v e - p o s i t i v e zero-crossing point of the l i n e - l i n e voltage. Three modes of SCR operation are defined as Modes 1, 2 and 3, corresponding to the' number of SCRs conducting at the same time. 5 Three cases may be considered depending upon the f i r i n g angle i n r e l a t i o n to the power f a c t o r of the load. In Case 1 only Mode 1 occurs. In Case 2 Modes 1 and 2 occur a l t e r n a t e l y . In Case 3 Modes 2 and 3 occur. Note that SCR f i r i n g c o n t r o l i s completely l o s t i n Case 3. 2.2. Analysis f o r Case 1 As mentioned above f or Case 1, only one SCR i s conducting at any time. Assume that only SCR^ i s conducting as shown i n F i g . 2.2 and that the load i n each phase consists of a r e s i s t o r R and an inductor L i n s e r i e s .

Let the f i r i n g sequence of the SCRs for alternate Modes 2 and 1 be as follows: SCR2 and SCR3, SCR3 only, SCR3 and SCR^ SCR± only, SCR;L and SCR2> SCR2 only, and so on.

As lagging power f a c t o r approaches unity, the e x t i n c t i o n angle decreases f o r any f i x e d f i r i n g angle. Also for a given lagging power f a c t o r , the e x t i n c t i o n angle decreases as the f i r i n g angle increases. For example, consider a load of power fa c t o r 0.5 lagging.

Introduction The delta-connected SCRs discussed i n the previous chapter w i l l now be considered i n r e l a t i o n to a synchronous motor. The delta-connected SCRs are i n s e r t e d i n the n e u t r a l point of the armature winding of the synchronous motor. The f i e l d winding i s D.C. excited. The motor with co n t r o l l o g i c i s shown i n F i g . 1.1. The system consists of a synchronous motor with SCRs, a d i s t r i b u t o r , a phase s h i f t e r , an AND gate and a 21.6 KHz c r y s t a l clock. The SCR gate pulses are obtained as follows: The phase s h i f t e r output i s used to set an R-S f l i p - f l o p , F i g . 3.1, which then remains i n the ON state u n t i l reset by a pulse which occurs at the positive-negative zero-crossing point of the l i n e - l i n e power supply voltage. The r e s u l t i n g R-S f l i p - f l o p output i s a p e r i o d i c pulse of the power supply frequency. The d i s t r i b u t o r consists of three lamps mounted on a d i s c , each lamp being aligned with a photo-diode on another d i s c . These discs are f i x e d to each other and adjustable i n p o s i t i o n with respect to the motor armature. A t h i r d d i s c with two s l o t s cut i n i t i s mounted on the motor shaft. Light from a lamp i s received by the corresponding photo-diode when l i g h t passes through a s l o t i n the r o t a t i n g d i s c . At these i n s t a n t s , pulse s i g n a l s are obtained from associated c i r c u i t r y . The time of occurrence of an output pulse i s r e l a t e d to- the rotor p o s i t i o n while the pulse r e p e t i t i o n frequency i s r e l a t e d to the motor speed. This pulse i s then used to gate the 21.6 KHz c r y s t a l clock output. These pulses are applied to the AND gate to y i e l d bursts of f i r i n g pulses, F i g . 3.2. The d i s t r i b u t o r s l o t s are cut so that the width of the output pulses from the d i s t r i b u t o r i s one-third the Phase Voltage _ (a) Phase Voltage 0 (b) Phase Shifter Output Distributor Output Clock Output i Mono Stable SCR ogate OSCR cathode F i g . 3.1 C i r c u i t to generate SCR gate pulses Line-line Supply voltage Phase shifter output R-S flip-flop output Distributor output SCR gate pulses F i g . 3.2 Waveforms for c i r c u i t of F i g . 3.1 21 period f o r a given speed, i . e . , the burst of f i r i n g pulses to each SCR gate may occupy up to one-third of a period. Mode 1 operation occurs when one SCR i s conducting. Once an SCR i s f i r e d , i t s e x t i n c t i o n angle i s dependent upon i t s f i r i n g angle and the power f a c t o r of the load. Thus, the SCR may s t i l l be conducting when the next SCR i s f i r e d . The r e s u l t i s Mode 2 operation with two SCRs conducting, as defined i n Section 2.1. The analysis of each of these Modes w i l l be discussed i n d e t a i l i n the following sections. The motor w i l l be assumed to have two poles and to operate at a constant speed. 3.2. Mode 1 Operation of the Motor One SCR i s conducting under Mode 1 operation, as shown i n F i g . 3.3. A o B o F i g . 3.3 Motor with r o t a t i n g D.C. f i e l d under Mode 1 operation, SCR1 conducting The distributor has been made so that f i r i n g pulses cannot be applied to more than one SCR at any. time. Thus, bursts of f i r i n g pulses are applied to the gates of SCR^, SCR^ , and SCR^, in turn, after each 120 degrees rotation of the rotor. Since the repetition frequency of the output pulses from the distributor is related to the motor speed, the magnetic f i e l d set up by the armature windings rotates at that speed. Consider the period during which SCR^ is conducting. The motor configuration of Fig. 3.3 with rotating f i e l d , for Mode 1, may be replaced by a motor with a rotating armature, as shown in Fig. 3.4. This second motor configuration may be further replaced by a motor with a mechanical commutator and brushes as shown in Fig. 3.5. Since the width of the distributor output pulses is one-third the period for a given motor speed, the commutator consists of two segments attached to the armature windings a and b, and each commutator segment spans 120 degrees. o B o A F i g . 3.5 Equivalent motor with mechanical commutator and brushes 3.3 Salient Pole Motor Equations, Mode 1 Operation The s a l i e n t pole motor w i l l be discussed i n this section.

The angle ^ i s a f u n c t i o n of time. Let i t be expressed by <J> = wt + O ' (3.21) where time i s measured from the i n s t a n t that the commutator segments 30 make contact with the brushes, F i g . 3.5. Note that time i s independently measured for each conducting SCR. Let y be the angle of the brushes advanced clockwise from the q-axis, as shown i n F i g . 3.7. Then, ty^ i s equal to -C| + y) and * = cot - | - y (3-22) Since the conduction period i s 120 degrees mechanical, ij> has a value between - y - Y and - - y. Next consider the voltage applied to the armature under Mode 1 operation. Because the motor speed i s not n e c e s s a r i l y the synchronous speed, 120 degrees mechanical r o t a t i o n does not correspond to 120 degrees e l e c t r i c a l phase s h i f t of the supply voltage. Commutation occurs when the conducting SCR extinguishes and the next SCR i s f i r e d . This may occur a f t e r 120 degrees i n r o t a t i o n which i s —^ co i n time. Since any machine speed co may be expressed by (3.23) O 6 F i g . 3.7 D e f i n i t i o n of angle y 31 where m and n are integers, and co^ i s the synchronous speed, the di f f e r e n c e between the mechanical and e l e c t r i c a l phase angles a f t e r one commutation i s given by 2TT _ 2TT_ _ "o ^ 2TT " l U o i i 3 O J 3 n-m 2TT m 3 (3.24) In general, a f t e r K commutations n-m 2IT Note that a f t e r 3m commutations, i . e . , m mechanical re v o l u t i o n s , n i s n 3 m = ( n - m ) 2TT which means that the o r i g i n a l phase r e l a t i o n s h i p s occur a f t e r every m revolutions. In general, the o r i g i n a l phase r e l a t i o n s h i p s occur a f t e r every m/P revolutions f o r a machine with P p o l e - p a i r s . Thus, the voltage across the brushes i s (3.25) v = S3 V sin(oj t + K ^ ^ + ? ) s o m 3 (3.26) where £ i s the phase angle of the l i n e - l i n e voltage at the beginning of the 3m commutation. K i s an integer (K = 0, 1,2,...) i n d i c a t i n g the number of completed commutations. The conditions for Mode 1 operation to change to Mode 2 w i l l be considered next. Under Mode 2 operation, voltage i s applied to a l l windings: v. s i n 6 s m ( 6 -) s m ( 9 + -y) ,„ 2T T X , „ , 2n\ cos 6 cos (9 -) cos (9 + — ) cos (co t. - ll) + O o sin(co ot - i\> + O 32 (3.27) As mentioned before, the extinction angle of an SCR i s dependent upon i t s f i r i n g angle and' the load power factor. This means that an SCR may be con-ducting beyond the normal f i r i n g period of the SCR, where the fi r i n g period corresponds to one-third of a rotation because of the mechanical distributor. Thus, SCR^ i n Fig. 1.1 may be conducting when SCR2 enters i t s f i r i n g period. If SCR2 is fired while SCR^ is s t i l l conducting, then the mode changes from Mode 1 to Mode 2. One of the necessary conditions to change from Mode 1 to Mode 2 is that armature current continues to flow through SCR^ beyond i t s f i r i n g period. The other necessary condition is that gate pulses must be applied to SCR2 while SCR^ is conducting. At the instant that the f i r i n g period ends for SCR^, the f i r i n g period for SCR2 commences. Hence, time t is again zero and K is incremented by one. Then, the phase angle of the supply voltage at this instant i s , from equation (3.26), a « K 2=H 2 ± + K (3.28) m J A burst of fi r i n g pulses i s applied to the gate of SCR2 when 6 is a $ 6 < 7T (3.29-) These two conditions are not sufficient to change the mode of operation because of voltages generated i n the armature windings. The additional condition for changing the mode is that the current in the third winding, i.e., the phase winding c i n this example, must become negative. Since the i n i t i a l current in the third phase winding is zero, the third condition is di ° < 0 (3.30) dt 33 From equation (3.1) i c ( t ) .

EXPERIMENTAL VERIFICATION OF THE OPERATION OF THE SCR CONTROLLED MOTOR To v e r i f y the analysis of Chapter 3 the motor configuration of F i g . 1.1 was set up i n the laboratory. The actual experimental set up is- shown i n F i g . 4.1. Comparison of the experimental r e s u l t s with the a n a l y t i c a l r e s u l t s w i l l be discussed i n t h i s chapter. 4.1. System components Gate Pulses. Various types of pulse s i g n a l s may be applied to an SCR gate. One type consists of gate pulses that commence at the desired f i r i n g angle a and end at the i n s t a n t corresponding to 180 degrees i n phase of the power supply. Such long-duration pulses are most des i r a b l e for f i r i n g SCRs, e s p e c i a l l y where inductive loads are involved. Because the d e l t a -connected SCRs cannot share a common ground connection, nine i s o l a t e d D.C. power supplies are required to generate these f i r i n g pulses. Pulse trans-formers are used to overcome the problem of the common ground connection. With a"pulse transformer, a short-pulse, or a burst of short-duration pulses commencing at the desired f i r i n g angle a and ending at 180 degrees of the power supply, may be applied to an SCR gate. The disadvantage of the s i n g l e short-duration pulse i s that i t may f a i l to f i r e the SCR. With a burst of short-duration pulses, f i r i n g of an SCR i s assured. The l o g i c to obtain these pulses has been described i n Section 3.1. Motor and SCRs. A UNITEC U-132 synchronous machine i s used f o r t h i s experiment. The s p e c i f i c a t i o n s are as follows: Output power : 1/4 H.P. Nominal input voltage (three-phase 1-1): 220 v o l t s F u l l - l o a d current : 1.3 amps.

D i s t r i b u t o r . The function of the d i s t r i b u t o r i s to detect the motor speed and the rotor position with respect to the armature windings. The construction of the d i s t r i b u t o r has been described i n Section 3.1. and i s shown i n F i g . 4.2. Phase S h i f t e r . D i g i t a l l o g i c i s used to s h i f t phase instead of an induction regulator. The l o g i c used, F i g . 4.3, i s as.follows: The negative-positive zero-crossing point of a l i n e - l i n e supply voltage i s detected by a comparator. At this instant a pulse triggers a decade counter to count the 21.6 KHz c r y s t a l clock pulses u n t i l i t reaches the number set by a thumb-wheel switch. This number corresponds to the desired angle a. The output pulse of the phase s h i f t e r occurs at the instant corresponding to th i s angle ex. Pulses for the Other two phases are derived from this phase s h i f t e r output pulse by delaying i t successively for one-third of a period Of the power supply. Torque Meter. A UNITEC U-235 Eddy Current Prony Brake i s used to measure the motor torque. I t works by the in t e r a c t i o n of a permanent magnet disc and eddy currents i n a rotating copper disc. 4.2. Determination of y = 0 Position of the Distributor The angle Y has been defined as the angle between the brush-axis and the q-axis of the equivalent motor for the f i r i n g period of the SCR under consideration, Section 3.6. Since the value of the angle Y affects the operation of the motor, i t i s necessary to determine i t s value.

Also from equation (3.22) Y = - f (4.3) Therefore, the procedure to determine y = 0 p o s i t i o n i s as follows: 1) Supply only enough three-phase voltage to turn on any SCR with the f i e l d c i r c u i t open. 2) While manually turning the r o t o r , observe the voltage waveforms induced i n the rotor c i r c u i t . Find the rotor p o s i t i o n such that there i s no induced voltage i n the. f i e l d c i r c u i t . This occurs when the angle if; i s zero. 3) Adjust the p o s i t i o n of the discs containing the lamps and the photo-diodes with respect to the armature for each phase such that one lamp and i t s corresponding photo-diode i s i n the middle of a s l o t of the r o t a t i n g d i s c when if> i s zero. This occurs when the angle y i s zero. 42 4.3. Comparison of A n a l y t i c a l and Experimental Current Waveforms From the analysis of Chapter'3, a computer program was w r i t t e n to obtain the waveforms of the f i e l d and armature currents. The r e s u l t s are compared with experimental r e s u l t s obtained from the set up discussed i n Section 4.1. The armature current waveforms at the motor speed of 720 r.p.m., which i s two-fifths the synchronous speed, i s shown i n F i g . 4.4.

F i g . 4.4(b) shows that the corresponding experi-mental armature current has a period of 81 msec. As discussed i n Section 3.6, the o r i g i n a l phase r e l a t i o n s h i p s of the supply voltage repeats every m/P revolutions for a motor with P p o l e - p a i r s . Since the motor has two pole-pairs and i s operating at two-fifths the synchronous speed, both m and P are two. Hence, one r e v o l u t i o n corresponds to one period of the waveform which i s 60/720 s e c , or 83 msec. The c a l c u l a t e d maximum.and minimum armature current values are 3.0 and -2.8 amps, r e s p e c t i v e l y . The corresponding experimental values are 2.9 and -2.9 amps, r e s p e c t i v e l y .

Speed-Torque C h a r a c t e r i s t i c s The speed-torque c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the motor has been investigated f o r two y values. The r e s u l t f o r y of 40 degrees i s shown i n F i g . 4.9. A speed of 1080 r.p.m., which i s t h r e e - f i f t h s the synchronous speed, i s obtained f o r a load of 0.225 Newton-meters. The motor operates stably at a speed of 900 r.p.m., which i s h a l f the synchronous speed, with a load between 0.31 and 0.46 Newton-meters. The motor i s unstable f o r a load between 0.46 and 0.52 Newton-meters, except that a steady speed of 771 r.p.m., which i s three-sevenths of the synchronous speed, i s obtained at 0.475 Newton-meters. Increasing the load torque past 0.52 Newton-meters, the motor becomes stable again but changes i t s speed to 720 r.p.m., which i s two-fifths the synchronous speed, u n t i l the load torque reaches 0.85 Newton-meters. F i g . 4.10 shows the speed-torque c h a r a c t e r i s t i c f o r y of 80 degrees. Operation at three-quarters the synchronous speed, 1350 r.p.m., occurs at 0.21 Newton-meters. The motor operates stably at a speed of 1200 r.p.m., i . e . , two-thirds the synchronous speed, f o r a load between 0.21 and 0.36 Newton-meters. The motor becomes unstable beyond 0.36 Newton-meters and the speed changes. I t i s not stable at 900 or 720 r.p.m. Note that the motor was stable at these 1100k 1000 49 500 8- 800 Ui k» 700 to 6*00 0^ 04 06 TORQUE (N. m) Fig. 4.9 Speed-torque characteristic (T=t0deg.) 0.8 02 0.4 0.6 0.8 TORQUE (N.m) Fig. t.10 Speed-torque characteristic (t~ = B0deg.) 50 speeds f o r a y of 40 degrees. Thus the motor seems to run at m/n times the synchronous speed, where m and n are integers of value 1, 2, 3, ...

The stable operation of the motor at any speed depends upon the value of y. In general, y must be close to 90 degrees f o r high speed operation, and small f o r low speed operation. 51 5. CONCLUSIONS The three-phase star-connected c i r c u i t with three delta-connected SCRs i n s e r t e d i n the neutral point was analyzed using Take-uchi's rj>-function method. The analysis was confirmed by experiment. A three-phase synchronous motor with three delta-connected SCRs ins e r t e d i n the n e t u r a l point of the armature windings was then in v e s t i g a t e d f o r speed c o n t r o l . The f i r i n g pulses applied to the SCR gates occur at instances r e l a t e d to the motor speed,the rotor position, and the zero-crossings of the voltage supply. The armature current waveforms that r e s u l t are no longer p e r i o d i c at the supply frequency but at some other frequency r e l a t e d to the motor speed. Stable operation at a subsynchronous speed, which i s m/n of the synchronous speed,is p o s s i b l e i f m i s low i n value such that the th ' m harmonic component of the frequency of the current waveforms i s large, where m and n are:.integers. The motor i s s e l f - s t a r t i n g , s t a r t i n g torque being dependent upon i n i t i a l rotor p o s i t i o n . The a n a l y t i c a l r e s u l t s were experi-mentally v e r i f i e d . The above scheme of speed c o n t r o l of a synchronous motor does not y i e l d continuous speed v a r i a t i o n s for a voltage supply with f i x e d frequency, i n contrast with converter-inverter schemes, but the l a t t e r require more SCRs. Further research on the SCR-controlled synchronous motor could i n v e s t i g a t e the transient and s t a b i l i t y c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . 52 Appendix Equations (2.16) to (2.21) are obtained as follows: Taking the Laplace transform of equation (2.14) we get Ssin(a- 4^)+co cos ( a - "5-?) a - ^?

Title | Steady-state characteristics at subsynchronous speeds of an SCR-controlled synchronous motor |
Creator |
Kano, Takashi |
Publisher | University of British Columbia |
Date Issued | 1971 |
Description | Okada's three-phase star-connected circuit with three delta-connected SCRs inserted in the neutral point is analyzed using Take-uchi's ϕ-function method. The three-phase synchronous motor with three delta-connected SCRs inserted in the neutral point of the armature windings is then investigated. By control of the firing of the SCRs, operation at subsynchronous speeds is possible. The analysis of the steady-state operation of the SCR-controlled synchronous motor is experimentally checked. |
