Model Reference Adaptive Control of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor

In this paper the classical theory of the direct Model Reference Adaptive Control is used to develop a control algorithm for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM). A PMSM model widely used in electric drives community is considered as base for control system development. Conventionally used controllers are replaced by adaptive ones. The resulting control system adapts to changes in any of PMSM parameters.
