Torque ripple reduction of permanent magnet synchronous motor with non-sinusoidal back emf using a modified and simplified current optimization technique

This paper presents a multiple reference frame method to reduce torque ripple in permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) regarding non-sinusoidal back emf. It has been proved that back emf 3rdharmonic component does not interfere in torque characteristic of the motor with Y-connected windings with floating neutral point.

Considering this fact, currents are optimized through a new approach, eliminating back-emf third harmonic component effect. Optimized current components are regulated through PI controllers which guaranty the desired convergence. Results have been investigated through simulations in Matlab/Simulink.
