In order to effectively achieve torque demand in electric vehicles (EVs), this paper presents a torque control strategy based on model predictive control (MPC) for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) driven by a two-level three-phase inverter. A centralized control strategy is established in the MPC framework to track the torque demand and reduce energy loss, by directly optimizing the switch states of inverter. To fast determine the optimal control sequence in predictive process, a…
