The variation of magnetic parameters due to the magnetic saturation and cross coupling can affect the efficiency and the stability of the control system in electrical machines, especially at high-speed operation. This paper presents an approach independent of the magnetic model parameters to control synchronous motors at the flux-weakening region. In this approach, a model order reduction technique is applied to reduce the finite element model of a synchronous machine. The stator current components and the flux linkage components are the inputs and the outputs of the reduced model, respectively. The reduced model and its inversion are employed to calculate the current reference components from the reference torque. Field oriented control scheme is utilized to implement the overall control system. The proposed control system is validated by means of simulation and experiment on a 2.2 kW permanent magnet synchronous machine.
