Multi‑step model predictive current control of permanent‑magnet synchronous motor

Vol. 20, No. 1, pp. 176-187, Jan. 2020


The traditional model predictive current control (MPCC) strategy has the advantages of a fast dynamic response and flexible constraint conditions. However, this strategy only determines the optimal voltage vector in a period rather than in multiple periods, which may result in a large current ripple. To solve the above problem, this paper proposes a multi-step MPCC strategy of permanent-magnet synchronous motor. In the proposed multi-step MPCC strategy, the optimal voltage vector and the sub-optimal voltage vector are considered simultaneously. The current response in the next period is predicted on the basis of the optimal and the sub-optimal voltage vectors, respectively. To ensure the optimality of the selected voltage vector in two control periods, the current responses of the two control periods are contrasted. Compared with the traditional MPCC strategy, simulation and experimental results show that the proposed multi-step MPCC strategy can effectively reduce the current ripple and improve the steady-state performance without increasing the switching frequency.
