Abstract This paper presents supervisor control methods at a matrix converter controlled overhead crane system based on a controller area network (CAN). Four induction motors are used to drive the gantry, trolley, and hoist at he crane and each motor is controlled by the matrix converter with direct torque control (DTC). Both the position control algorithm and the supervisor control system using CAN are introduced. Simulation and experimental results are carried out to verify the performance of position control at the matrix converter controlled crane system.
