Asynchronous machines are well known to have natural limitations because of the highly nonlinearity and complexity of their motor models. To resolve these problems, an indirect field-oriented control (IFOC) algorithm is applied to control the instantaneous electrical quantities such as torque and flux component. Medium-voltage drives are generally based on either voltage-source inverter (VSI) or current-source inverter (CSI). This paper presents a high-performance CSI-fed IFOC method. By the decoupled control of the machine flux and torque, the performance of the conventional direct field-oriented control (DFOC) CSI-fed induction motor drives has improved; however, this scheme presents a low dynamic response and machine parameter dependence. A squirrel-cage induction motor drive system that provides the proposed IFOC algorithm is tested. The IFOC algorithm has a good dynamic performance and stability. Graphs with measured and estimated values of torque and speed are presented. The results demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed torque control embedded on a digital signal processor (DSP) microcontroller.
