This paper presents a position-sensorless vector torque controller designed to achieve maximum efficiency over a range of power and rotational speed for a synchronous reluctance machine. A model of the synchronous reluctance machine is presented which incorporates both winding and core losses. It is then shown that a stator-flux-oriented control scheme can achieve synchronous operation of the machine without a position sensor at medium and high electrical frequencies. For a given speed and torque, power losses in the machine are shown to be a function of only the stator flux magnitude. As the power losses are a convex function of the stator flux level, the optimal flux value can be found using a one-dimensional optimization algorithm, such as the Method of Sequential Quadratic Interpolations. Optimal flux values for a synchronous reluctance machine are determined using an experimental setup that accurately determines losses in the motor/drive system. Experimental results obtained from the test setup confirm the validity of the controller and the optimization algorithm.
