Variable Magnetization Machine Controller
WARF: P130156US01

The Invention
A variable magnetization machine controller has a current command module, a magnetization module and a reducing current module. The current command module computes a vector current command in a dq axis based on a torque command. The magnetization module applies a magnetization control pulse to a d-axis current of the vector current command. Thus, the reducing current module applies a reducing current to a q-axis current of the vector current command based on the torque command and one of an estimated torque of the variable magnetization machine and a measured torque of the variable magnetization machine.
