Title : Synchronizing Multi-3-Phase Induction Motors Based on PLC Controller; Theoretical and Hardware Implementation

Abstract :

The great advancement in digital applications has led designers to be able to control industrial processes using the programmable logic controller (PLC). This research employs PLC controller to drive two induction motors in three synchronized forms though AC drive supplied from single phase supply. The forms are, master-slave operating with same speed or different speeds and when the second motor runs at preset ratio of the first machine. Theoretical implementation is driven through Matlab/Simulink with a known parameters 3-ph induction motor while the hardware implementation is driven using PLC controller and unknown 3-ph induction motor parameters. The control drive has been tested under different operating conditions, and its reliability has been proven though practical results
