A comprehensive comparative study of various vector control strategies for the brushless doubly fed reluctance machine (BDFRM) is presented in this paper. Open and closed-loop scalar control algorithms for the machine are developed and examined by computer simulations. Particular emphasis is placed on the machine performance/inverter size trade-offs associated with the control properties considered. Most of this analysis is carried out using normalised modelling techniques specifically focusing on the BDFRM target applications - large pump-type drives and variable speed constant frequency wind-turbine generators.
