Predictive torque control (PTC) is based on the prediction of motor torque and stator flux for all possible voltage vectors of power converter. These predictions are derived from a mathematical model of the motor that depends on the motor parameters. But, these parameters may not match with their actual values. These parametric uncertainties lead to inaccurate predictions of torque and stator flux and affect the performance of the predictive algorithm. This paper presents a modified PTC for a permanent magnet synchronous motor to reduce the torque ripple at the presence of parametric uncertainty by improving the prediction accurateness. Simulation and experimental results are provided to show the effect of the proposed method.
