PMSM Position Control

This example shows how to control the rotor position in a PMSM based electrical drive. An ideal torque source provides the load. The Control subsystem uses a cascade control structure with two control loops, an outer loop for position and speed control and an inner loop for current control. An optimal state-feedback linear quadratic regulator controls the position and speed. A Luenberger observer estimates the load. The inner current-control loop is implemented using PI controllers. The PMSM is fed by a controlled three-phase inverter. The simulation uses step references. The Scopes subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results.
