Adaptive control of a chaotic permanent magnet synchronous motor

Original Paper


This paper proposes a simple adaptive controller design method for a chaotic permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) based on the sliding mode control theory which has given an effective means to design robust controllers for nonlinear systems with bounded uncertainties. The proposed sliding mode adaptive controller does not require any information on the PMSM parameter and load torque values, thus it is insensitive to model parameter and load torque variations. Simulation results are given to verify that the proposed method can be successfully used to control a chaotic PMSM under model parameter and load torque variations.
