IPMSM Outer Loop Controller Evaluation

This example shows how to control the rotor angular velocity in an interior permanent magnet synchronous machine (IPMSM) based electrical-traction drive. For evaluation of the outer loop velocity controller, the inner loop current controller is replaced by a three-phase controlled current source. An ideal torque source provides the load. The Scopes subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results. The Control subsystem includes a PI-based outer loop controller. During the three-seconds simulation, the angular velocity demand is -1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, and then 5000 rpm.

Results from Real-Time Simulation

This example has been tested on a Speedgoat Performance real-time target machine with an Intel® 3.5 GHz i7 multi-core CPU. This model can run in real time with a step size of 100 microseconds.
