Chattering Reduction Using Boundary-SMC on Low-Speed Setting of 3-Phase Induction Motor with IFOC Method

Vector control has been widely used in induction motor speed settings due to its high performance and ability to be separately controlled as DC motors. Indirect Field Oriented Control (IFOC) is a vector control method applicable to induction motors due to the ease of design and implementation. However, its performance decreases due to changes in motor parameter variations and load disturbances, which led to the use of Sliding Mode Control (SMC), capable of resisting and stabilizing parameter changes and load disturbances. In the First Order Sliding Mode Control (FOSMC), a dangerous chattering phenomenon occurs and results in the stability of the control system. Therefore, this research designed a Boundary-SMC controller to control the speed of a 3-phase induction based on IFOC with a change in load disturbance to reduce the chattering phenomenon at low speeds, where the largest percentage occurs. Furthermore, this research used Lyapunov's stability theory to ensure stability with the performance of these controls monitored and analyzed in LabView. The results showed that FOSMC has better resilience and stability than PID, with a steady error rate of 0.001% and a chattering percentage of 0.12%. With Boundary-SMC, the chattering percentage and stiffness are reduced to 0.005% and 0.284%, respectively.
