Current ripple, torque ripple, predictive torque control , PMSM


The control of (PMSM) is the subject of this study and the torque ripple reduction in (PMSM) is the main goal of this work. Torque and flux are controlled using a predictive model and Vector Control. Because it is commonly employed in regulating electric motors. Space vector control and predictive control are two (PMSM) control approaches used in this study. Predictive control was determined to be more effective in terms of response and action after a Matlab simulation of the two approaches. MPC covers all potential switching states that decrease actual torque and flux ripples as well as Total Harmonic Distortion. The benefits of MPC include simple principles, an easy-to-use console, and the ability to implement limits quickly. However, there are some drawbacks to this technique, including the requirement for bigger accounts and faster machines. The fundamental principles of the control techniques discussed are provided A (PMSM) powered by a two-level power converter is then used to simulate the control approaches. Their performance in comparison is based on the obtained results.
