This paper proposes a novel control scheme for the fast current control of permanent magnet synchronous machines. The proposed method mainly works in the transient state of current control without deteriorating steady-state characteristics. The proposed method is applicable in a wide range of speed: in the speed below the base speed and in the flux weakening region. Using the proposed method, the reference values of currents are modified so that the currents follow the so-called “shortcut” trajectory in the coordinate plane. The effectiveness of the proposed method is confirmed by computer simulations and experiments. The settling time is reduced by 55% compared with that of the conventional method.
