Abstract: A finite-state predictive torque control system for a speed-sensorless induction motor drive supplied from a three-level neutral-point clamped inverter is proposed. For sensorless operation, the controller requires estimated speed and rotor/stator flux. In this study, the rotor speed and the rotor flux are estimated accurately by using an extended Kalman filter. Due to the large number of available voltage vectors, the control algorithm for a multilevel inverter-fed drive is computationally expensive. As a consequence, the controller requires longer execution time that yields worse torque, flux, and speed responses, especially at low-speed. In order to reduce the computational burden, a reduced number of voltage vectors for prediction and optimization in the control algorithm is proposed in this paper. The sign of the stator flux deviation and the position of the stator flux are predicted to lessen the number of voltage vectors tested. Experimental results illustrate that the proposed encoderless strategy can estimate the speed accurately over a wide speed range including field-weakening region while maintaining robustness and excellent torque and flux responses.
