dc.description.abstractThis Engineering Doctorate thesis investigates the different implementations and theories allowing drives to control motors using sensorless techniques that could be used in an aerospace environment. A range of converter topologies and their control will be examined to evaluate the possible techniques that will allow a robust and reliable drive algorithm to be implemented. The focus of the research is around sensorless drives for fuel pump applications, with the potential to replace an existing analogue implementation that is embedded in a fuel pump, contained within the fuel tank. The motor choice (Brushless DC) reflects the requirement for endurance and tight speed control over the life of the aircraft. The study of currently understood sensorless control will allow a critical analysis over the best and most robust sensorless control technique for a controller of this nature, where reliability is a fundamental requirement.en_US
