In this paper, optimal phase advances under fault-tolerant control (FTC) of a five-phase permanent magnet assisted synchronous reluctance motor (PMa-SynRM) have been proposed under different fault conditions. Critical applications where the consistency and safety are the major concerns in automotive and aerospace industries require reliable control systems. The multiphase motor is considered a promising candidate for these applications as it has redundant phases primarily for fault-tolerant operation. However, advanced FTC for a PMa-SynRM with maximization of reluctance torque has been limitedly studied until now. In the conventional approach, to maintain constant magnetomotive force under fault conditions, phase currents of a motor need to increase significantly. However, this will easily saturate the PMa-SynRM resulting in significantly reduced reluctance torque. To overcome this issue, this paper proposes a novel phase current control method that maximizes the reluctance torque with minimum phase current. Here, a phase current control with a novel phase advance has been proposed under various fault conditions. Extensive theoretical and experimental analysis has been carried out to verify the effectiveness of the proposed idea with 5-hp dynamo system controlled by TI DSP F28335.
