The traditional method for PMSM control over a wide speed range is the flux weakening operation in high speed region. This leads to increasing copper losses and decreasing motor torque. To overcome this problem a higher DC link voltage is necessary. In the field of electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) the normal battery voltage of LiIon or NiMH is about 150 V up to 400 V . A high voltage boost converter could raise up the DC link voltage to a higher level. This paper illustrates the effects for a higher DC link voltage by using the same motor design. The differences in copper losses for the motor and the total system losses are matched together. Also decribed is a method for optimal torque and current ratio. The maximum torque per ampere method shows the optimale current trajectory by increasing rotor speed.
