The main theme of this paper is to present novel switching techniques, which insert zero-voltage vectors and/or more nonzero-voltage vectors to the conventional switching table, for AC drives with direct torque control. For the same sampling frequency of a drive controller, the proposed techniques are quite effective in reducing the torque pulsation and the speed ripples of the motors, as demonstrated in several experimental results. Moreover, the experimental confirmations have been made not only on an induction machine but also on a permanent-magnet synchronous machine.
