Improved Parameter Estimation Techniques for Induction Motors using Hybrid Algorithms

Julius Susanto, Syed Islam

The performance of Newton-Raphson, Levenberg-Marquardt, Damped Newton-Raphson and genetic algorithms are investigated for the estimation of induction motor equivalent circuit parameters from commonly available manufacturer data. A new hybrid algorithm is then proposed that combines the advantages of both descent and natural optimisation algorithms. Through computer simulation, the hybrid algorithm is shown to significantly outperform the conventional algorithms in terms of convergence and squared error rates. All of the algorithms are tested on a large data set of 6,380 IEC (50Hz) and NEMA (60Hz) motors.
