I have an idea to drive induction motors in a new way. I call it Variable Torque Drive (VTD). You are all familiar with VFD which utilize variable frequency and try to keep the torque constant. This method is vice versa. Let me explain.
Assume I have this weird delta configuration to drive phase coils. Keep in mind that I can control the drive currents RMS amplitude like in the figure, on right. For some reason I can not change the frequency, but I have full control over the amplitude. You are seing the waveform of each phase currents in the figure. As you know IF you increase the phase currents you increase the torque.
Now lets assume I have a constant frequency at 100 Hz and I can deliver 0 to 100 Amps RMS currents. Please try to put aside what you already know about classical driving methods. Like I said, I have full control over the amplitude and If I don't allow current flow on field coilds, no currents will flow.
So since I can drive field coils at 100 Hz, its synchronous speed is 100*60 = 6000 RPM max. Now lets say I want to drive a loaded motor in 10 rad/s. Load is 10 KN and I can deliver up to 20 KN to the load. I also have speed sensors in on the rotor side. First I will deliver 15 KN to the load, and when I reach some speed close to 10 rad/s, I decrease delivered power to 5KN, then after the speed decreased down to some level below 10 rad/s, then I increase it to 12 KN, then 8 KN and it goes and on like this till I adequately regulate the speed at 10 rad/s. See the figure below to understand it better.
The question is, since my synchronous speed is 6000 RPM, can I drive an induction motor with this method and control the speed 0 to 5880 RPM(I figured the slip may be 2%). If so, does such method exist? If not, please explain why. Thanks.
