IDENTIFICATION OF INDUCTION MACHINE PARAMETERS USING ONLY NO-LOAD TEST MEASUREMENTS
Keywords:induction motor, no-load tests, machine parameters, third impedance calculation, blocked-rotor test
Several methods have been used to estimate the parameters of induction machines. The basic method is the standard no-load and block rotor test. Although accurate results are obtained using this method; however, performing the locked rotor test is difficult, requiring full control of the voltage by using appropriate instrument to mechanically secure the rotor in the locked condition. Therefore, in this paper, a method requiring only a no-load test to extract the parameters of the induction machine is presented. The proposed method is based on the modification of the third impedance calculation of the IEEE standard 112. To validate the proposed method, parameters of a standard 7.5kW induction machine are estimated. Based on the experimental results, the maximum recorded error in the parameter estimation is less than -2.881% when compared to the reference parameters obtained from the conventional no-load and blocked rotor test.
