This paper proposes a neural-network current-regulated switching strategy and an intelligent controller for a matrix converter permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive system. By using this new switching strategy, the current harmonics of the system are effectively reduced. In addition, by using the intelligent controller, position control of the drive system can be achieved and an adjustable speed range from 1 r/min to 1500 r/min can be obtained. All the current-loop, speed-loop, and position-loop control algorithms are implemented by a 32-bit TMS320C40 digital signal processor. Several experimental results are shown to validate the theoretical analysis.
