Abstract

This paper proposes a new approach for discrimination between short circuit fault, magnetic saturation phenomenon and supply voltage unbalance in permanent magnet synchronous motor. This proposed approach is based on tracking the simultaneous position in the polar coordinates of the amplitude and phase angle of the voltage and current indicator FFT signals of the harmonics characterizing the three phenomena. The voltage indicator set using three supply voltages to check the status of the power source. In the same way, the current indicator defined using three line currents to discriminate between the short circuit fault and the magnetic saturation phenomenon. To highlight the effectiveness and the capability of this approach, a series of simulations are performed on signals obtained from a permanent magnet synchronous motor mathematical model. This model is based on a 2D-extension of the modified winding function approach.
