This paper presents a comparative study between field-oriented control (FOC) and Predictive Torque Control (PTC) applied to induction machines. Both strategies are implemented on the same experimental bench and similar tests are performed. Furthermore, they were previously adjusted to get an equivalent switching frequency at a specific operation point, achieving the fairest possible comparison at steady state. Experimental results verify that PTC can achieve results similar to FOC, possibly even improving performance in transient conditions.
