In this article, an adaptive linear neuron based current harmonics suppression method for permanent magnet synchronous motors with nonsinusoidal back electromotive force (EMF) is presented, with due account for dead-time effect. The current harmonics can be well-suppressed by feedforwarding a self-tuning compensation voltage. The proposed method does not rely on the knowledge of back-EMF harmonic components and dead-time effect. Moreover, the proposed method is easy to implement, since it does not need the process to extract the current harmonics. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by both simulation and experimental results without requiring additional hardware.
