Quasi-synchronous Operation Principle of a Variable-Airgap Doubly-fed Linear Motor for High-Speed Maglev Application
Compared to a long-stator linear synchronous motor (LLSM), a long-stator doubly-fed linear motor (DFLM) exhibits two distinct advantages for high-speed maglev application: 1) It has two additional degrees of freedom with both the frequency and the phase angle of the mover to improve its control accuracy and dynamic responses; 2) It can use the slip power to feed the mover contactlessly and directly. In order to achieve the propulsion, the levitation, and the contactless power transfer through the common air-gap magnetic field, the “quasi-synchronous operation (QSO)” principle of the DFLM is proposed for high-speed maglev train. Based on the DFLM modeling and distinctive constraints for maglev train, the operation point analysis of the performance evaluation is further investigated. To validate the feasibility of the DFLM application for high-speed maglev train, a unit DFLM prototype is designed and tested, and the corresponding simulation studies of the QSO control structure are investigated.
