The aim of this chapter is to present a new type of powertrain with dimensions and low weight, for vehicles with reduced carbon emissions, which have an axial synchronous machine with one stator and two rotor, with static converter that is simple and inexpensive, a broadcast transmission system using an electric differential, with the control of the two rotors so that they can operate as motor/generator, at the same rotational direction or in opposite directions, at the same speed value, at slightly different speeds or at much different speeds by using an original dual vector control with operating on dual frequency. This is a major concern of hybrid and electric vehicle manufacturers. Expected results: a lighter power train with 20% and an increase in 5% of electric drive efficiency, low inertia rotor at high speed, a compact electric drive system with high torque and simple control, intelligent energy management system with a new vision of technological and innovation development, and equal importance of environment protection. The electrical machines for hybrid (HEV) or electric (EV) drives include a variety of different topologies. According to outcomes of literature survey, induction machines alongside synchronous machines take the major place in HEV or EV power trains.
Part of the book: New Trends in Electrical Vehicle Powertrains
This chapter presents a novel dual stator-winding induction generator (DSWIG) system for wind power generation, and an optimal scheme to decrease the capacity of static excitation converter (SEC) is also given. The main result is represented by the finding that reactive excitation power released by the excitation capacitor and SEC is not only correlated to generator parameters, speed range, and load but also affected by wind turbine power curve. This chapter also investigates the optimal excitation capacitor selection process. Considering the objective of minimizing the capacity of SEC, several methods are tested here to identify an appropriate excitation capacitor value. Using the general d-q model in the stator-voltage-orientation synchronous frame of the DSWIG control algorithm and model of SEC, a decoupling control strategy using the space vector modulation (SVM) is determined for the six-phase DSWIG. Based on the obtained models, the computer simulation and experimental investigations of a test prototype orated at 18 kW with six stator phases and three-phase wound rotor DSWIG wind power system were carried out to validate the optimal solution for the system The matching results (simulation and teststand measurements) demonstrate the correctness and effectiveness of this optimization scheme.
