AFPM synchronous motor, ac brushless drives, forklifts


The growing development of power electronics and control systems have made possible a research for novel solutions for motor drives in all the fields of electrical traction. In particular, ac technology, in despite of a greater complexity of the system, shows better dynamic performances, lower maintenance costs and a major compactness. In the field of forklifts, brushed dc motors are widely used and the ac technology is still moving its first steps. Aim of this paper is to present a brushless motor drive which makes use of PMSM motors. It is demonstrated that the adoption of such motors leads to a series of advantages that makes this solution very attractive for future production.
