The present paper is a part of the study of Direct Torque Control based (DTC) on space vector modulation using predictive controller (Predictive SVM) of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) powered by a photovoltaic (PV) source. In the conventional direct torque control (DTC) of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), hysteresis controllers are used to choose the proper voltage vector resulting in large torque ripples. The direct torque control can accelerate the torque responses but increases the torque ripple at same time. Nowadays, exist some other alternative approaches to reduce the torque ripples based on (Predictive SVM) technique. This method is based on the replacement of hysteresis comparators (used in conventional DTC) by Proportional Integral (PI) regulators and the selection table by space vector modulation (SVM). The simulation results confirm that this proposed method where the control of the switching frequency is well controlled, allows us to reduce the oscillations of the electromagnetic torque and flux by 20 % and 30%, respectively with a good dynamic response compared with conventional DTC.
