Abstract
This paper reviews state-of-the-art loss-minimizing control strategies for synchronous reluctance motors. Methods can be categorized as loss-model controllers (LMCs) and search controllers (SCs). For LMCs, different loss models and the corresponding optimal solutions are summarized. The effects of the core losses and magnetic saturation on the optimal stator current are investigated; magnetic saturation is a more important factor than the core losses. For SCs, different search algorithms are presented and compared. The SCs are evaluated based on their convergence speed, parameter sensitivity, accuracy, and the torque ripple caused by the search process.
