In this paper, a new predictive current controller for a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) considering delays is presented. In a full digital current control system for a PMSM, there are inevitable delays in calculating and applying the inverter output voltages to the motor terminals. A predictive current controller implemented in a full digital system has serious problems such as the oscillation and large overshoot. A discussion of compensation methods to cope with the nonlinearities of the real system is also presented. The proposed current controller has been analyzed, and the experimental results are shown to prove the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed predictive current controller using a prototype 750 W PMSM servo drive system.
