In this study, a novel predictive torque and stator flux control (PTSF) method is proposed for N-segment three-phase PMSM (N*3-phase PMSM), which can effectively eliminate the influence of parameter mismatch on stator flux and torque. The proposed PTSF method has two loops, stator flux loop and torque loop, both implemented with robust predictive control algorithm. First, the stator flux predictive controller with parameter robustness is designed, and the sensitivity of its parameters is analyzed. In the dq stator flux space, the robust stator flux predictive control with one-step delay compensation is then proposed, which can effectively enhance robustness against parameters mismatch. Moreover, the robust torque predictive control based on unknown torque disturbance observer is developed, which can effectively strengthen the robustness against the load torque disturbance and parameter mismatch. Finally, the validity and feasibility of proposed PTSF method are verified by simulation and experiment. Excellent simulation and experimental results were achieved with respect to the stator flux tracking error, torque /flux ripple reduction, and stator current distortion over conventional predictive torque control (PTC).
