The paper deals with modified PI current control structures for large AC drive systems which use surface mounted permanent magnet synchronous machines or squirrel-cage induction motors supplied with voltage source inverters. In order to reduce the power losses caused by high frequency switching of the semiconductor devices, various compensation methods are used and a modified structure for a PI current controller is proposed, to reduce the switching frequency of the inverter for the same operating frequency of the drive. Simulation, experimental development and test results are presented in order to demonstrate the capabilities of the control procedure.
