Fault detection for PMSM motor drive systems by monitoring inverter input currents (2017)
Journal Article
Li, J., Sumner, M., Zhang, H., & Arellano-Padilla, J. (2017). Fault detection for PMSM motor drive systems by monitoring inverter input currents. doi:10.23919/TEMS.2017.7961339. ISSN 2096-3564

This paper has proposed a fault detecting method for DC supplied permanent magnet synchronize motor (PMSM) drive systems by monitoring the drive DC input current. This method is based on the fault signal propagation from the torque disturbance on the... Read More

Fault signal propagation through the PMSM motor drive systems (2017)
Journal Article
Li, J., Sumner, M., Arellano-Padilla, J., & Zhang, H. (in press). Fault signal propagation through the PMSM motor drive systems. IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 53(3), doi:10.1109/TIA.2017.2677881. ISSN 0093-9994

This paper describes how a mechanical disturbance on the shaft of a variable speed permanent magnet motor (PMSM) is propagated to the supply input side of the drive system, and therefore may be detected by monitoring specific frequency components in... Read More

Non-linear circuit based model of PMSM under inter-turn fault: a simple approach based on healthy machine data (2016)
Journal Article
Belguerras, L., Arellano-Padilla, J., Arumugam, P., Hamiti, T., Mezani, S., & Gerada, C. (in press). Non-linear circuit based model of PMSM under inter-turn fault: a simple approach based on healthy machine data. IET Electric Power Applications, 10(6), doi:10.1049/iet-epa.2015.0443. ISSN 1751-8660

The paper proposes a fast dynamic mathematical model to evaluate the performances of saturated permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSM) under stator winding’s inter turn fault. The parameters of the model can be determined using only manufacturer... Read More

Evaluation of saliency tracking as an alternative for health monitoring in PMSM-drives under nonstationary conditions (2016)
Journal Article
Arellano-Padilla, J., Sumner, M., & Gerada, C. (2016). Evaluation of saliency tracking as an alternative for health monitoring in PMSM-drives under nonstationary conditions. IET Electric Power Applications, 10(4), doi:10.1049/iet-epa.2015.0356. ISSN 1751-8660

This paper evaluates the capability of saliency tracking to assess the health condition of permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drives operating under nonstationary conditions. The evaluated scheme is based on saliency tracking methods, which ar... Read More
