This chapter aims at proposing a complete mathematical analysis and derivation of the small signal model for voltage-source inverter (VSI) with surface-mounted PMSM (SPMSM). The basic equations of the SPMSM model were developed and simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. In addition, the switch state functions were used to express the motor phase voltage and then develop mathematical model for VSI. In order to control the machine speed from standstill to rated speed with rated load, the vector control strategy was applied. To design the speed loop and current loop, anti-windup PI controllers were used. To verify the effectiveness of the presented analysis, some of obtained simulation results were discussed.

Power stages of PWM converters are nonlinear owing to the presence of at least one transistor and a diode [1–13]. In order to apply the known knowledge of linear control theory, the power stages need to be ...
