In this paper, a synchronous motor with an inverter integrated rotor (SMIIR) is introduced, and its control scheme is proposed. This presents a new breed of synchronous motor in that it integrates an inverter inside the rotor. The basic operational principle and control strategies are discussed. Given these new strategies, the SMIIR can be considered as a synchronous motor which changes its field according to the harmonic voltage of the stator inverter. The feasibility of the proposed structure of the drive system and its operation principle are evaluated through experimental results.
