An Impact of Switching Frequency and Model Accuracy on Model Predictive Current Control Performance for Reluctance Synchronous Motors


The present paper investigates the feasibility of utilizing the simplified prediction model for finite control set model predictive current control (FCS-MPCC) applied to reluctance synchronous motors (RSMs). The FCS-MPCC exhibits torque and current ripples, and a crucial consideration is the reduction of these ripples by increasing the switching frequency. The algorithm’s computational complexity is tied to the accuracy of the adopted model. Two approaches with varying levels of accuracy in predicting current dependencies concerning changes in the inductance of the RSM are investigated. The findings highlight the potential of employing simplified fixed inductance values for efficient control in drive systems, particularly those amenable to high switching frequencies.
