This paper deals with the design and implementation of a PMSM drive control system, considering a PIC-based controller. The PMSM drive is simulated and tested through the software MATLAB. As in any high-performance AC electric drive system, field oriented control is applied. The complete control system is distributed in three control loops, namely torque, speed and position. A standard PIC control system, and a hybrid control system based on fuzzy logic, are implemented and tested. The natural variation of motor parameters, such as winding resistance and magnetic flux, are also simulated. Comparisons between the two control schemes are carried out for speed and position control using different error measurements, such as, integral square error, integral absolute error and root mean squared error. Comparison results show a superior performance of the PIC-based controller when coping with parameter variations, and by reducing torque ripple, but the results are reversed when periodical torque disturbances are present.
