Abstract: This paper presents the realization and performance of a fully digital permanent magnet synchronous motor drive. A new control algorithm gives maximum torque to current ratio in both the constant torque region and in flux weakening. Inner loop current control and vector modulation with short calculation time are obtained by thc use of look-up tables. The controller is implemented in a singleboard control computer for power electronics systems, which is based on a 16 bit microcontroller.
