Abstract

Synchronous reluctance motors (SyRMs) with or without permanent magnets (PMs) have highly nonlinear saturation characteristics. The effects of the magnetic saturation can be included in the current controller by changing its state variable from the stator current to the stator flux linkage using the known saturation characteristics. If the saturation characteristics are linear, the proposed control structure reduces to the standard current controller in this special case. Experimental results on a 6.7-kW SyRM drive demonstrate that the proposed controller enables a higher closed-loop bandwidth as compared to the standard current controller.
