Sajad Saberi; Behrooz Rezaie

Volume 8, Issue 2 , Spring 2021, , Pages 13-20

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2020.234039.1118

Abstract
  This paper presents a sensorless speed control algorithm based on Finite Control Set Model Predictive Control (FCS-MPC) for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) fed by a 3-level Neutral-Point Clamped (NPC) converter. The proposed scheme uses an anti-windup Proportional-Integral (PI) controller concept ...  Read More
