Abstract

This paper introduces a permanent magnet (PM) machine model accounting for saturation effects and non-sinusoidal electromotive force (EMF) employed in model predictive control schemes. The procedure of the model parameters determination is based on the three dimensional finite element analysis (FEA) considering saturation and cross-coupling effects. The conventional equivalent circuit model is subject to modifications so as to incorporate data derived from FEA enabling the model predictive control strategies to obtain proper actions for the converter operation based on the accurate prediction of the machine performance. The regeneration of the n-order harmonic components of the non-sinusoidal EMF is attained by combining methods of superposition and approximation estimating the output voltage at the machine terminals for different loading and speed. Developed model simulation results have been validated by experiments performed on an inset PM machine prototype.
