Abstract

The effective motion control task is highly influencing the final drive performance in wide-range motor drives applications such as electric vehicles (EVs), washing machines, compressors, elevators and lathe machines. Recently, permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive has been widely employed in these applications to achieve desired performances such as high efficiency, high torque requirements with minimum size “occupancy”. The PMSM drive features combining with these modern drive applications are highly nonlinear and the desired operation requirements demand high-performance control schemes with fast system response and robustness features. Linear control schemes are usually implemented to drive the PMSM that entail trade-offs between drive performance and simplicity in control implementation. Therefore, this paper presents the nonlinear control technique based on augmented finite control set (AFCS) model predictive control (MPC) scheme (AFCS-MPC). The proposed AFCS-MPC scheme enhances the standard MPC design by augmenting the nonlinear characteristics of the PMSM drive to achieve wide speed range drive performance under both steady-state and dynamic operating conditions. Comparative performance studies have been conducted and presented to confirm the efficacy of the proposed scheme.
