© 2016 IEEE. Finite-state predictive torque control (FS-PTC) is computationally expensive, since it uses all voltage vectors (VVs) available from a power converter for prediction and actuation. The computational burden is rapidly increased with the number of VVs and objectives to be controlled. Moreover, designing a cost function with more than two control objectives is a complex task. This paper proposes a simplified algorithm based on a new direct torque control (DTC) switching table to reduce the number of VVs to be predicted and objectives to be controlled. The new switching table also assists to reduce average switching frequency and its variation range. As a result, the cost function is simplified by not requiring to include the frequency term. Experimental results show that the average execution time and the average switching frequency for the proposed algorithm are greatly reduced without affecting the torque and flux performances achieved in the conventional FS-PTC.
