Abstract

This paper discusses the process of developing a novel and robust algorithm for an interior permanent magnet synchronous motor controller. This is necessary for the simplification of the setting of control parameters and maintaining the proper operation of the motor. A 3D torque lookup table was used in which two inputs were considered, i.e., accelerator movements and the motor rotational speed. These two inputs allowed the lookup table to generate a specified torque at any motor rotation, which was then fed-forward to the field-oriented control and space vector pulse width modulation algorithm. Modeling, simulation, and experimental tests were performed to design and validate the proposed controller. The experimental validation shows that the proposed controller worked as intended. This was indicated by its ability to control the motor to obtain a 7% higher torque output than in the simulation in the constant torque region. In the field-weakening region, the controller could make the motor reach a maximum speed of 5500 RPM. There was only an 8% difference compared to the simulation (6500 RPM). In terms of maximum power generated, the controller was able to match the simulation output with only a 5% difference.
