High performance control method which is able to improve the current inner loop performance is required in order to avoid the problem of the parameter setting of PI controller in vector control. And it will take time for controller to sample and calculate so there is a delay in the processing of the prediction model. Therefore, the paper proposes a model prediction current control with a delay compensation strategy for asynchronous motor drive. Firstly, the current prediction model under the rotating coordinate system is built using the asynchronous motor equation and the basic framework of current model predictive control is established based on the field orientation strategy. Also, the future trajectory of the current is predicted based on the linear fitting method. Then, aimed at a delay problem existing in the current predictive control, the paper proposes the delay compensation strategy to improve the adverse effects caused by a delay. And the simulation results verify the feasibility of the compensation strategy.
