Single-Phase Asynchronous Machine Direct Torque Control

This example shows how to control the rotor speed in a single-phase asynchronous machine (ASM) based electrical drive using direct torque control. An ideal torque source provides the load. The Control subsystem uses a cascade control structure. An outer PI-based speed control loop provides the torque and flux references to the direct torque control algorithm from the inner loop. The single-phase ASM is fed by an H bridge. The Scopes subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results.
