This paper focuses on Field-Oriented Control (FOC) of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM). Model Reference Adaptive Control System (MRAS) is selected to estimate the speed of a drive. Electrical torque distortion of the machine under dynamic performance is relatively high, and if proper measures are taken, it can be significantly decreased. The first anticipated solution here is to combine FOC with the Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) technique. The intention of the sensorless control is to get better speed control performance with reduced torque ripples under load variations in MATLAB/Simulink/Simpower environment.
