For induction motor torque control, direct torque control is becoming the industry standard. This paper proposes a switching loss minimization technique for improved Direct Torque Control (DTC) of permanent magnet synchronous motors in order to increase the drive system's steady-state and dynamic results. Direct torque control (DTC) of a voltage source inverter-supplied PMSM is a simple scheme that requires little computation time, can be implemented without speed sensors, and is unaffected by parameter variations. In theory, the motor terminal voltages and currents are used to calculate the flux and torque of the motor. A voltage vector is chosen to restrict the flux and torque errors within their flux and torque hysteresis bands based on the instantaneous torque and stator flux magnitude errors, as well as estimates of the flux position. The electromagnetic torque, rotor speed, and stator current of DTC with PMSM and DTC with IM were successfully calculated using Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) in this article. As compared to DTC with IM, DTC with PMSM reduced THD by 12 percent in torque, speed, and stator current [21]. Switching Losses Minimization Technique by THD Minimization is used in this article. Since transistors are only switched when necessary to maintain torque and flux within their hysteresis limits, switching losses are minimised, resulting in increased efficiency and lower losses. Matlab SIMULINK has experimentally confirmed direct torque regulation with PMSM and IM.
