Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR DETERMINING A WASHING MACHINE LOAD UNBALANCE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME POUR DETERMINER LE DESEQUILIBRE DE CHARGE D'UN LAVE-LINGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A clothes washing machine system including a method of detecting a load unbalance. The washing machine system includes a cabinet having a drum rotatably mounted therein. A motor is coupled to the drum for rotating the drum within the cabinet. A memory device is accessible by a processor, such as a digital signal processor (DSP). The memory contains program code for implementing a method that includes determining the motor torque ripple, determining the motor speed, and determining the load unbalance mass based on the motor torque and speed.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de lave-linge qui comprend un procédé de détection de déséquilibre de charge. Ce système de lave-linge comprend un corps dans lequel un tambour est monté rotatif. Un moteur couplé au tambour sert à faire tourner le tambour dans le corps. Un dispositif de mémoire est accessible par un processeur tel qu'un processeur de signal numérique (DSP). La mémoire contient un code de programme pour mettre en oeuvre un procédé qui comporte les étapes consistant à : déterminer l'ondulation de couple moteur, déterminer la vitesse du moteur et déterminer la masse du déséquilibre de charge sur la base du couple et de la vitesse du moteur.
