In this chapter, two robust control strategies for the synchronous motor are designed. In this preliminary phase, it is assumed all the variables are measurable and that all the parameters are known or bounded (and their bounds are known). The estimation of the nonmeasured state and of some sensitive parameters has been studied in Chap.  3. The sensitivity with respect to the variations of these parameters will be studied in Chap.  6. First, integral backstepping control strategies for the PMSM and the IPMSM are designed to track the desired trajectories of the rotor speed (defined in Chap.  1). Sufficient conditions are obtained to ensure the exponential convergence of the tracking error. Next, control strategies based on sliding mode techniques are designed to track the desired trajectories. Since the chattering phenomenon is a drawback of the classical sliding mode control and represents a limitation for its implementation, then in order to reduce these effects, a quasi-continuous sliding mode controller and a high-order sliding mode controller are designed for the PMSM and the IPMSM.
