Any nonlinear behavior of the system is analyzed by a useful way of Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) technique. Reduced THD achieves lower peak current, higher efficiency and longer equipment life span. Simulated annealing (SA) is applied due to the effectiveness of locating solutions that are close to ideal and to challenge large-scale combinatorial optimization for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM). The parameters of direct torque controllers (DTC) for the drive are automatically adjusted by the optimization algorithm. Advantages of the PI-Fuzzy-SA algorithm are retained when used together. It also improves the rate of system convergence. Speed response improvement and harmonic reduction is achieved with SA-based DTC for PMSM. This mechanism is known to be faster than other algorithms. Also, it is observed that as compared to other algorithms, the projected algorithm yields a reduced total harmonic distortion. As a result of the employment of Space Vector Modulation (SVM) technique, the system is resistant to changes in motor specifications and load torque. Through MATLAB & Simulink simulation, the experiment is done and the performance is calculated for the controller.

The use of electrical energy has recently become inevitable in the current days. Approximately two-thirds of electricity is utilized by motors in power industries worldwide. Electric motors, power electronics drive circuits, sensors, and controllers are the major components of typical drive systems. As per the recent advances in control theories, semiconductor power devices and magnetic materials, permanent magnet synchronous motor drives have become inevitable in motion-control applications. Normally, PMSM is a high-performing and high-efficiency motor drive. The characteristics like full torque control at zero speed, quick acceleration and deceleration, and its smooth spinning over the entire speed range make PMSM to perform high. As compared to conventional motors, PMSM consumes 30% less energy. Removal of secondary conductive losses in the rotor leads to this energy saving, noise reduction, low rotor inertia, motor size reduction and efficient heat dissipation are all due to the PMSM with exterior windings and inner permanent magnet rotor. Also, recent developments in PMSM drives make them more suitable for industrial applications which require high torque at low speeds. Applications of PMSM drives can be found in the paper and textile industry and in special applications for marine. Also, it can be applied in traction, robotics and aerospace due to its compactness, increased power, increased intelligence and high torque density. In recent years, many studies have been undertaken for applying various methods to reduce the impact of uncertainties. On a fundamental level, traditional PID controllers are usually employed in industries because of their simplicity, candid control structure and economical nature. On varying the rotating magnetic field frequency, the motors synchronous speed can be controlled. As production and maintenance costs are higher for synchronous motors, industries have the challenge to improve the performance of motors with accurate speed tracking, smooth torque output and minimum ripple during transients. The PMSM satisfies the criteria required by the industry.

DTC is one of the best methods to control torque of AC machines. The higher torque control rate and speed sensitivity make DTC as superior over other methods. Rotor status information is needed to implement the field orientation process in a flux vector drive under magnetic operating conditions. The pulse encoders give the details about angular position and rotor speed to acquire rotor status. The high cost of pulse encoders needs a suitable alternative. The necessary control variables for DC drives are motor flux and torque, which in turn are controlled by the stator current. DTC deeds motor flux and torque as they are control variables to control the speed of AC drives. For designing and developing three-phase sine wave voltage source inverters, SVM is the proven best method.

SVM becomes the best suited technique to provide pulse-width modulation for voltage-fed converter drives due to its higher harmonic quality and wider range of operation. A speed PI controller generates the reference torque, and the control approach is Dead Beat DTC. Under external disturbances, the PI controller has a low dynamic and poor precision. The rate of convergence is very low in this method [

This study proposes a simulated annealing based control system for rotor position control in PMSM drives. This study is more appropriate for close to ideal solutions in large scale combinatorial optimization problems, such as Random Search. This optimization problem investigates an objective function’s parameter space, making it simple to minimize the objective functions. Likewise, here the iteration is based on the minimum of ripple in torque and flux by finding the correct parameters to control the PMSM drive. DTC-SVM played a major role in this work.

Performance of suggested method has been successfully proven by simulated and experimental findings. The following is description of the structure of the paper. The problem formulation and the dynamic analysis of the PMSM servo drive are stated in Section 2. Unit 3 comprises the Simulated Annealing framework, DTC model, and SVM. Simulation and experimental analysis were used to confirm the correctness of the design approach and the resilience of the suggested controller. Under load fluctuations and parameter uncertainties, the dynamic performance of the drive system is investigated. Section 4 contains validation with experimental simulations and results. Inference and future scope are given in Section 5.

At every sampling period, a single stator voltage is chosen and is kept constant for the entire duration. High and small torques are not differentiated by the switching technique. This introduces an extra torque ripple during steady state operation. A reference stator voltage space vector is determined at all sampling periods, in this control scheme. This is done by the proper selection of inverter switch states and by calculating time period for every state [

The method of heating up a solid and then cooling it down until it becomes a crystal is called simulated annealing. Simulated annealing consists mainly of a sequence of iterations being repeated. The two energy level sets E_{i} and E_{j} are obtained from the respective current solution and test solution. If E_{i} − E_{j} < 0, then trail solution is accepted and the current solution is substituted. Else, acceptance or refusal depends on the acceptance of probability by Boltzman. A move of every solution to all neighborhood state space should be within the cooling schedule of initial temperature.

For the permanent magnet drive system, this Simulated Annealing technique with reduced THD has been developed. The proposed technique is not only better than conventional methods, but also robust during engine parameters variation, especially when, load torque disturbances are considered. The parameters of DTC controllers for PMSM are automatically adjusted by the optimization algorithm. The advantages of the PI-Fuzzy-SA algorithm are retained when used together. The results show that in all applications, and in particular in this work, the proposed algorithm is very versatile. The outstanding simulation results produced demonstrate the efficacy of this technique in controlling the PMSM speed torque and d and q axes at the present time.
