    Generally speaking, we think of testing as a laboratory exercise, a carefully controlled process. However, many products cannot be thoroughly tested solely in the structured environment and process of a laboratory procedure-based evaluation. Certainly, most products require evaluation in the laboratory, at least for initial assessment and debugging. While many environments can be reasonably reprod... View full abstract»

    In this article, J-M transformation control strategy is presented and is different from the two classical strategies of vector strategy and direct torque control strategy. The main feature of this method is that the motor torques are separated into positive and negative torque. The positive or negative rotation speed of the motor is controlled directly by the positive and negative torque to improv... View full abstract»
