Motor Drive and Control Experiment Platform

1.      Platform Introduction
The motor drive and control experiment platform is a multi-function experiment platform that integrates motor drive experiments and motion control experiments. It adopts a T-shaped architecture and contains multiple types of motors and drive experiment modules, a frequency converter, fast prototype simulator, and real-time simulation software package. On this experiment platform, users can learn the frequency converter control technology, communication technologies, power supply and distribution control technology, DC/three-phase asynchronous motor control technology, etc.

2.      Platform Features
  1. Compatibility: It covers traditional motor drive experiments and also supports fast control prototype experiments for innovative motors;
  2. Open Structure: The T-shaped structure is open and simple, and the experiment modules are easy to install and remove and can be flexibly combined;
  3. Modular Design: The experiment modules are independent, handy, and nice. One experiment platform contains multiple types of experiment modules, which can be added or decreased flexibly based on users’ needs;
  4. Security Design:
    • The experiment modules use insulated panels resistant against up to 10kV voltage to prevent electric leakage of metal panels and ensure human safety;
    • A current-mode leakage protector is installed, so that once there is electric leakage, the power is automatically cut off;
    • The strong-current socket is well protected, and the connection lines use protected gun plugs to ensure safety and reliability;
  5. Advanced Nature: Allows students to design motor control algorithms based on Matlab/Simulink and to quickly verify them on the motor experiment platform;
  6. Diverse Debugging Methods: During experiments, the platform provides various development debugging methods, such as online modification of any control parameter, online monitoring of any system variable, and real-time storage, offline playback and data export of all observation data.
