  • Patent number: 11936311
    Abstract: To provide a controller for motor which can reduce a torque ripple up to high frequency, without amplifying unnecessary noise and vibration. A controller for motor estimates an interlinkage flux based on the applied voltage and the detection value of current; estimates an output torque based on the detection value of current and the estimation value of interlinkage flux; extracts a pulsation component from the estimation value of output torque; calculates a voltage command correction value based on the extraction value of pulsation component; calculates a voltage command after superimposing by superimposing the voltage command correction value on the voltage command basic value; and applies voltage to winding based on the voltage command after superimposing.
