Abstract: This paper presents the use of the fuzzy logic duty cycle concept in the finite-control-set model predictive direct torque control (FCS-MPDTC) strategy to mitigate the torque ripples of a surface-mounted permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive. In fact, MPDTC is a simple and powerful tool to overcome the main drawbacks associated with the commonly used control strategies like direct torque control (DTC) and field-oriented control (FOC). However, the conventional-MPDTC selects only one voltage vector (VV) per sampling period and this procedure leads to increase relatively the torque ripple. In order to further improve the torque control performance, an adaptive fuzzy logic-based duty cycle modulation is utilised and two VV's instead of single VV are applied during the whole control cycle. The performances of the proposed control scheme are simulated and compared to those obtained with conventional-MPDTC. The simulation results show that the proposed AFLM-MPDTC can effectively mitigate the torque ripples, even under severe operating conditions.
