The recent rising of oil prices and global warming crises increasingly support the ongoing practice of loss minimization control of electric motors including single-phase induction ones as the most used motors. Therefore, the tendency toward using variable-speed drives (VSDs) to save energy by adjusting motor speed is seen, but on account of increasing motor loss in nonrated conditions, an efficiency control system can improve energy saving even more. In this paper, after carrying out a detailed motor efficiency analysis, an appropriate method for motor efficiency maximization control, combined with a VSD, is presented and implemented. Experimental results of the implemented system validate the proposed method.
