Abstract

Fast and accurate transient response is the main requirement in electric machine position control. Conventional cascade control structure has sluggish response due to the limitation of inner control loop bandwidth. In this paper, in order to decrease the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) transient response time it can be used reference model using feed-forward signals. In this structure, feed-forward signals generated by simplified model of permanent magnet synchronous motor. In this paper, feed-forward signals generated are emplyed in model predictive control; which are combined with conventional cascade control structure. Using this approach, a fast transient response and satisfactory tracking ability will be guaranteed. The proposed method is compared with the model reference method and conventional cascade structure. Simulation results showed a good performance of proposed method related to both methods. Verification of simulation results were carried out by experimental results
