To reduce commutation torque ripple, a model predictive control (MPC) for permanent brushless DC motors (BLDCM) is presented (CTR). Torque ripples cause vibration noise and decrease efficiency. The suggested MPC system is constructed by forecasting the phase current with the aim of minimizing the BLDCM's CTR and taking into consideration the CTR sources. The method presented in this paper is a unique methodology for suppressing CTR over the whole speed range, avoids more complex current controllers or modulation models, and overcomes the challenges of commutated-phase-current control. The ideal switching state is instantly selected and implemented during the next sample period according to the preset cost function in order to match the slope rates of outgoing and incoming phase currents during commutation, ensuring the minimum of commutation torque ripple. The modelling and experiment findings show that the suggested method can effectively reduce CTR over a wide speed range and achieve the better CTR minimization performance. The results are then compared to the outcomes of various torque ripple reduction(TRR) techniques.
