A Novel Zeta Converter with Pi Controller for Power Factor Correction in Induction Motor

Authors(4) :-S. Arunraj, S. Murugesan, T. Uma Nandhini, K. Keerthana

This study deals with a reduced sensor configuration of a power factor correction (PFC) based zeta converter for induction motor for low power applications. The speed of the Induction motor is controlled by varying the dc-link voltage of the voltage source inverter (VSI) feeding induction motor drive. A low-frequency switching of the VSI is used for achieving the electronic commutation of induction motor for reduced switching losses. The PFC-based zeta converter is designed to operate in discontinuous inductor current mode; thus utilizing a voltage follower approach which requires a single voltage sensor for dc-link voltage control and PFC operation. The proposed drive is designed to operate over a wide range of speed control with improved power quality at ac mains and the results are verified through numeric simulation using MAT Lab Simulink.
