This dissertation investigates digital controller and switch mode power supply design for super high-speed permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM). The PMSMs are a key component for the miniaturic cryocooler that is currently under development at the University of Central Florida with support from NASA Kennedy Space Center and the Florida Solar Energy Center. Advanced motor design methods, control strategies, and rapid progress in semiconductor technology enables production of a highly efficient digital controller. However, there are still challenges for such super high-speed controller design because of its stability, high-speed, variable speed operation, and required efficiency over a wide speed range. Currently, limited research, and no commercial experimental analysis, is available concerning such motors and their control system design. The stability of a super high-speed PMSM is an important issue particularly for open-loop control, given that PMSM are unstable after exceeding a certain applied frequency. In this dissertation, the stability of super high-speed PMSM is analyzed and some design suggestions are given to maximize this parameter. For ordinary motors, the V/f control curve is a straight line with a boost voltage because the stator resistance is negligible and only has a significant effect around the DC frequency. However, for the proposed super high-speed PMSM the situation is quite different because of the motor's size. The stator resistance is quite large compared with the stator reactive impedance and cannot be neglected when employing constant a V/f control method. The challenge is to design an optimal constant V/f control scheme to raise efficiency with constant V/f control. In the development, test systems and prototype boards were built and experimental results confirmed the effectiveness of the dissertation system.
