An adaptive series speed control system for an interior permanent magnet synchronous motor (IPMSM) drive is presented in this paper. This control system consists of a current and a speed control loop, and it is intended to improve the drive’s speed tracking performance as well as to compensate for voltage distortions caused by non-ideal characteristics of the drive’s actuator, which is a voltage source inverter (VSI). To achieve these goals, a simple model that captures these characteristics of the VSI is developed and embedded in the motor’s electrical model. Then, based on the resulting model, an adaptive proportional-integral (PI) control for the current loops is designed, allowing for state regulation and actuator compensation. Additionally, to improve the drive’s speed tracking performance, a proportional-model-reference adaptive controller (MRAC) is designed for the speed loop. Techniques from machine learning are used for designing the MRAC to effectively address nonlinearities and uncertainties in the speed dynamic. Finally, simulation results are presented to illustrate the outstanding performance of the proposed multi-loop controller.
