Abstract: AC motor drives have produced and still produce a particular high impact in many technical applications. Advantages of adjusting the frequency of operation can not be fully exploited without adjustment command and control strategies through modeling of the corresponding components. Simulation of drive systems is complicated due to the nonlinear high level that they bring to the power electronics and also due to control, adjustments and protection in the transfer of power flux. Moreover, mathematical models of semiconductor and control functions, which are not yet found in many programs, require from the designer or specialist the introduction of its own version of a simulation program. It is currently known that the use of available multi-level modeling, commonly used to describe static converters and each model, can introduce undesirable effects on the behavior of an electric machine. This lecture presents the current trends of advanced control techniques and control of induction machines used for variable frequency drives, depending on the torque, speed and rotor position. The possibilities of command and control without sensors are analyzed. As well, an estimation of the results obtained by modeling and simulation of the control and an adjustable system are discussed. Finally, in the present lecture recommendations are given about how to run a simulated vector for controlled induction electric machines.
