This work investigates the problem of efficiency optimization in capacitor-run single-phase induction motors. The double-revolving-field concept is employed in the theoretical analysis and a relation between the main and auxiliary stator currents is derived that accomplishes optimal efficiency under constant torque operation. A triac-based drive with an optimal efficiency voltage controller is proposed. The controller is easily implemented since an experimental procedure is used for adjusting its parameters. Moreover, the proposed control scheme satisfies all of the prerequisites of simplicity, reliability, and cost-effectiveness that are imposed by the utilization of a single-phase motor. Several experimental results are presented to validate the effectiveness of the proposed efficiency optimization control method.
