Description

  The present invention relates to a rotation angle detection device including a resolver provided in a motor shaft or an engine connected to the shaft, an abnormality detection device thereof, an electric power steering device using the rotation detection device, and the like.

  In servo system control, a rotation angle sensor is required to detect the rotation angle and realize feedback control. Further, in brushless motor control, since it is necessary to energize the motor coil in accordance with the rotation angle of the motor, a rotation angle sensor is required in addition to the servo control system.

  As a rotation angle sensor, a resolver has been widely used because of its environmental resistance resulting from its simple configuration.

  Further, in a servo control system applied to electric power steering or the like, safety and reliability are required, so a failure detection function of the rotation angle detection device is required.

  A resolver digital converter has been developed in order to convert it into a rotation angle based on a signal from a resolver and input it as digital data to a microcomputer or the like.

  Patent Document 1 discloses that a SIN signal and a COS signal that are output signals of a resolver are captured at a pair of symmetrical timings before and after their peak positions.

  With this method, sampling is performed at the timing between the peaks and evenly spaced on both sides of the peak, so that two output signals (SIN signal and COS signal) are both sampled at timing close to the peak position. . Further, an error from the voltage value at the peak position of the sampling value is suppressed and equalized.

  Also, assuming that the detected rotation angle is θ, the sum of squares of detected sin θ and con θ is calculated, and a fluctuation that causes the sum of squares to fall below a predetermined threshold value causes an abnormality such as the resolver output signal harness being disconnected. It is also disclosed to detect.

JP 2000-39337 A (Overall)

  However, in the above technique, an error component is included in the SIN signal and the COS signal of the resolver output signal, and the angle cannot be accurately detected.

  As is clear from FIG. 2C of Patent Document 1, it is ideal that the SIN signal and COS signal of the resolver are taken at the same time at the peak positions, and the signal is shifted at a position shifted from the peak. By taking in, an error component is included.

  In addition, in a control target that requires high reliability, such as an electric power steering system, it is necessary to be able to determine the abnormality of the resolver digital converter used in the main system.

  Other objects and features of the present invention will be clarified in the embodiments described below.

  Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.

  FIG. 1 is an overall functional block diagram of a rotation angle detection device according to an embodiment of the present invention.

  The resolver 1 is attached to a rotating shaft of an electric power steering (EPS) motor, for example, and detects the rotational angle position of the motor. The resolver 1 receives the excitation signal 2a from the excitation signal generator 2 as a bias, and the resolver digital converter 3 receives the sin θm signal 1a and the cos θm signal 1b obtained by integrating the excitation signal component 2a and the rotation angle θm information of the rotation shaft. Entered. The resolver digital converter 3 calculates the motor shaft angle θm based on the sin θm signal 1a, the cos θm signal 1b, and the excitation signal 2a. The angle information θm is transmitted to the CPU 4 through the signal lines 3a and 3b, and the CPU 4 controls the motor based on the angle information θm.

  The above is the main system basic method for detecting the motor shaft angle. However, when the resolver digital conversion unit 3 calculates the abnormal angle, the CPU 4 performs wrong motor control. In addition, when motor control is applied particularly to electric power steering, safety and reliability are required. Therefore, a safe steering operation can be performed simultaneously with a failure detection function, even when the resolver digital conversion unit 3 fails. A backup (life extension) means that can be continued is required.

  Therefore, a comparison reference value for determining an abnormality in angle detection in the main system including the resolver digital conversion unit 3 and a redundant detection unit 5 for improving the accuracy of the detection angle used as a backup (life extension) in an emergency are provided.

  The zero-cross detector 6 is configured with a differential output, and detects a portion where the differential component of the excitation signal 2a is zero. The edge discriminating unit 7 detects whether the zero cross edge of the excitation signal 2a is rising or falling. The counter 8 is a digital counter and is a so-called time counter that counts up by free run using the zero-cross detection signal 6a as a reset signal. The counter 8 sequentially stores and updates the interval (cycle) of the reset signal based on the zero-cross detection signal 6a, and sequentially measures the frequency of the excitation signal 2a as its reciprocal. For this reason, even if the excitation signal 2a fluctuates temporarily due to disturbances such as temperature and voltage, the redundancy detection unit 5 has a self-correcting function.

  Further, the reference signal 8 a is output from the counter 8 to the one-shot generation unit 9 only when the rising edge signal 7 a is input by the edge determination unit 7. The reference signal 8a operates with a default of 1/2 of the interval of the zero cross detection signal 6a that is sequentially measured by the counter 8. Further, the output timing of the reference signal 8a can be moved in the front-rear direction by a command value from the offset addition / subtraction unit 10.

  The phase delay / advance amount by the resolver 1 is stored in the ROM of the CPU 4 in advance. Thereby, even if the resolver 1 has a phase lag / advance, the redundancy detector 5 can be employed with versatility.

  The SPI unit 11 is a serial peripheral interface (Serial Peripheral Interface). The SPI unit 11 transmits the phase lag / advance amount generated by the resolver 1 stored in advance in the ROM of the CPU 4 to the offset addition / subtraction unit 10 in the redundancy detection unit 5 when the CPU 4 is activated.

  The counter 8 outputs the reference signal 8 a to the one-shot generation unit 9 based on ½ of the reset interval measured by the previous counter and the offset amount from the offset addition / subtraction unit 10.

  The sin θm signal 1 a and the cos θm signal 1 b are input to the sample holder 12 in the redundancy detection unit 5 and sampled and held by a hold command signal 9 a from the one-shot generation unit 9.

  In the one-shot generation unit 9, the sample holder 12 outputs a signal 9 a for holding the sin θm / cos θm signal, and simultaneously outputs an AD conversion command signal 9 b to the CPU 4. The CPU 4 generates an interrupt process by the AD conversion command signal 9b, and AD converts the sample hold value 12a of the sin θm signal 1a and the sample hold value 12b of the cos θm signal 1b.

  According to this embodiment, the values of the sin θm signal 1a and the cos θm signal 1b can be simultaneously held outside the CPU, and the signals 1a and 1b can be AD-converted during the processing free time of the CPU 4. Therefore, the CPU 4 can calculate the motor shaft angle θm on the basis of the sin θm signal 1a and the cos θm signal 1b with no time error.

  Therefore, the redundancy detection unit 5 can calculate the motor shaft angle θm with high accuracy, and can obtain a reference value for comparison for abnormality determination of the resolver digital conversion unit 3. In addition, even if an abnormality occurs in the resolver digital conversion unit 3, by using the detected value of the motor shaft angle θm by the redundancy detection unit 5 as a backup, the safe steering operation can be continued (prolonged) at the minimum. Can do.

  As a further abnormality detection means, the sky / earth fault detection unit 13 can perform self-diagnosis of the sky / ground fault by monitoring the voltages of the sin θm signal 1a and the cos θm signal 1b.

  According to the present embodiment, it is possible to prevent abnormality of the signal line itself and to calculate an incorrect motor shaft angle, thereby realizing high reliability.

  The diagnosis result of the top / bottom detection unit 13 is transmitted to the CPU 4 via the SPI unit 11, and the CPU 4 can immediately detect an abnormality.

  FIG. 2 is a diagram showing operation waveforms of respective parts in the embodiment of FIG. 1 of the present invention.

The excitation signal 2 a is generated as a differential signal and is composed of a signal 21 and a signal 22. As the angle signals, there are a sin θm signal 1a and a cos θm signal 1b, but only the cos θm signal 1b is described in this figure. cosθm
The signal 1b is formed of a differential signal like the excitation signal 2a, and includes signals 23 and 24. This is because the common-mode noise component is removed by the differential signal, and noise resistance can be improved.

  The zero-cross detection COMP signal 25 is a signal component in the zero-cross detection unit 6 and detects a cross point of the excitation signals 21 and 22. When the excitation signal 22 changes from a state larger than the excitation signal 21 to a smaller state, the state changes from HIGH to LOW. When the excitation signal 21 changes from a state larger than the excitation signal 22 to a smaller state, the signal is switched from LOW to HIGH. The zero-cross detection signal 6 a is an output signal from the zero-cross detection unit 6 and is output when the zero-cross detection COMP signal 25 rises and falls. The rising edge detection signal 7 a is output at the falling edge of the zero cross detection COMP signal 25. That is, it is output when the excitation signal 22 changes from a state larger than the excitation signal 21 to a smaller state.

  The counter signal 26 is a counter that operates in the counter 8 and clocks the clock using the zero cross detection signal 6a as a reset signal. It also operates as a frequency measurement reference signal.

  Further, the count-up operation after the rising edge detection signal 7a is output is set as an effective value, and the AD conversion command signal 9b is output based on 1/2 of the period measurement result by the previous counter operation and the offset signal from the CPU 4. To do. At the same time, the output of the sample holder 12, that is, the AD input 12b is calculated from the differential values of the signals 23 and 24 of the cos θm signal 1b and sample-held.

  In this waveform diagram, only the cos θm signal 1b is described, but the same operation is performed for the sin θm signal 1a.

  FIG. 3 is an internal block diagram of the top / bottom detector 13 in the embodiment of the present invention shown in FIG.

  The earth-and-earth fault detector 13 monitors the voltages of the sin θm signal 1a and the cos θm signal 1b, and determines whether the voltages are within the reference voltages 33 and 34 by a window comparator constituted by the comparators 31 and 32 and the OR gate 35. judge. When normal, the sin θm signal 1a and the cos θm signal 1b are within the reference voltages 33 and 34. If the sin θm signal 1 a or the cos θm signal 1 b has a power fault, it becomes larger than the reference voltage 33 and an abnormality detection signal is output from the comparator 31. When the sin θm signal 1 a or the cos θm signal 1 b is grounded, the reference voltage 34 is lower, and an abnormality detection signal is output from the comparator 32. Abnormal signals from the comparators 31 and 32 are collected by an OR gate 35. The filter 36 is set to prevent erroneous detection due to noise. The signal 13a from the top / bottom detection unit 13 that has passed through the filter 36 is input to the SPI unit 11, and the CPU 4 can detect the presence / absence of the top / bottom fault of the signal line.

  FIG. 4 is an overall functional block diagram of an electric power steering system using a rotation angle detection device according to an embodiment of the present invention.

  When the steering 401 is rotated, the rotational driving force is decelerated by the manual steering gear 403 via the rod 402 and transmitted to the left and right wheels 406 and 407 via the left and right tie rods 404 and 405. Steer.

  The EPS motor 408 according to this embodiment is attached to the vicinity of the rod 402 of the steering 401 and transmits the driving force to the rod 402 via the gear 409. A torque sensor 410 is attached to the rod 402 and detects a rotational driving force (torque) applied to the steering 401.

  The control device 411 includes the CPU 4 in FIG. 1 and first inputs the output of the torque sensor 410. Further, the rotational angle θm signal of the EPS motor 408 detected through the resolver digital conversion unit 3 and the redundancy detection unit 5 is input from the resolver 1 described in FIG. Then, the energization current of the motor 408 is controlled so that the rotation angle θm of the EPS motor 408, that is, the steering angle becomes the operation angle of the steering 401.

  Here, the rotation angle θm of the EPS motor 408 is transmitted from the resolver 1 to the control device 411 via the resolver digital conversion unit 3 which is the main system. Further, the rotation angle θm signal of the EPS motor 408 from the redundant system detected through the redundancy detection unit 5 described in FIG. 1 is determined so that the controller 411 can determine whether there is an error in the rotation angle θm signal. Enter also. In addition, as described above, the redundancy detection unit 5 realizes high-precision detection and reliability as compared with the conventional case. Even if the main system fails, the minimum backup (life extension) control is realized. Can continue.

  FIG. 5 is a functional block diagram of a steering drive control device 500 that drives and controls the EPS motor 408 in the control device 411 in the embodiment of FIG. The steering drive control device 500 includes a power module 501 that constitutes an inverter main circuit (conversion circuit), and a control module 502 that controls an on / off operation (switching operation) of a power semiconductor switching element of the power module 501. . The inverter main circuit of the power module 501 is composed of a three-phase bridge circuit configured by bridge-connecting six power semiconductor switching elements. The battery 503 is electrically connected to the input side (DC side) of the inverter main circuit of the power module 501, and the stator coil 504 of the EPS motor 408 is electrically connected to the output side (AC side). The control module 502 controls switching of each of the six power semiconductor switching elements of the power module 501. Thus, the DC power output from the battery 503 is converted into three-phase AC power in the inverter main circuit of the power module 501 and supplied to the stator coil 504 of the EPS motor 408.

  The control module 502 generates a control signal for controlling the on / off operation (switching operation) of the power semiconductor switching element, and configures a control unit that outputs the control signal to a driver circuit (not shown) of the power module 501. is doing. In the control module 502, the torque detection value Tf of the steering wheel 401 detected by the torque sensor 410, the rotation speed detection value ωf of the rotor 506 detected by the encoder 505, and the rotor 506 detected by the resolver 1 are input parameters. The detected magnetic pole position value θm is input. As described with reference to FIGS. 1 and 4, the rotational angle θm of the EPS motor 408 is transmitted from the resolver 1 to the control device 411 via the resolver digital conversion unit 3 which is the main system. Further, the rotation angle θm signal of the EPS motor 408 from the redundant system is obtained via the redundancy detector 5 described in detail in FIG. 1 so that the controller 411 can determine whether the rotation angle θm signal is correct. Enter also. The redundancy detection unit 5 realizes high-precision detection and reliability, and even if the main system fails, the minimum backup (life extension) control can be continued.

  The torque detection value Tf is input to the torque control circuit 507 together with the torque command value Ts. The torque control circuit 507 calculates the torque target value Te based on the torque detection value Tf and the torque command value Ts, and outputs the current command value Is and the rotation angle θ1 by proportional integration of the calculated torque target value Te. . The rotation angle θ1 is input to the phase shift circuit 508 together with the rotation speed detection value ωf. The phase shift circuit 508 calculates the rotation angle θa of the rotor 506 based on the detected rotation speed value ωf, and outputs the calculated rotation angle θa after phase shifting based on the rotation angle θ1. The rotation angle θa is input to the sine wave / cosine wave generation circuit 509 together with the magnetic pole position detection value θm. The sine wave / cosine wave generation circuit 509 is a sine wave basic waveform (drive current waveform) obtained by phase-shifting the induced voltage of each winding (here, three phases) of the stator coil 506 based on the rotation angle θa and the magnetic pole position detection value θm. ) Generate and output the value Iav. Note that the amount of the phase shift may be zero.

  The sine wave basic waveform (drive current waveform) value Iav is input to the two-phase / three-phase conversion circuit 510 together with the current command value Is.

The drive signal for each phase is input to the power semiconductor switching element for the corresponding phase. When the power semiconductor switching element performs a switching operation, DC power supplied from the battery 503 is converted into AC power and supplied to the stator coil 504 of the EPS motor 408. At this time, the combined current of the phase currents supplied to the stator coil 504 is always formed at a position that is orthogonal to or phase shifted from the field magnetic flux. Thereby, the EPS motor 408 generates a rotating magnetic field corresponding to the rotational position of the rotor 506, and the rotor 506 rotates.
