The paper deals with the torque-ripple reduction in a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive with distorted back electromotive force. A smooth torque is obtained by tracking a modified current reference which is periodic over one-sixth of the electrical time period in the synchronous reference frame. An accurate tracking involves, however, very high current loop bandwidth, which is usually not achievable with conventional linear controllers. In order to improve current tracking in the presence of periodic reference signals and disturbances, the paper proposes the application of repetitive techniques to the current control in a field-oriented PMSM drive, where the q-axis current reference has been modified to achieve constant torque. The paper investigates the advantages and pitfalls of the method, through a mathematical analysis and an experimental validation obtained on a laboratory prototype. Particular emphasis is placed on the adjustments that have been specifically studied to enhance the overall system performance.
