In recent years, the variable speed motor drive is supported over a fixed speed motor drive as per essentialness safeguarding, speed or position control and improvement of transient response characteristics. The aim of any speed controller is to take main signal that represent the reference speed and to drive the framework at that reference speed. This paper exhibits the design, simulation and control of synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM). In addition, the motor speed is controlled by utilizing a conventional PID controller that has been used from the cascaded structure. The Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) was used to find the best parameters of the PID controller. Lead-Lag controller presents from the cascaded controller as the following period of control. The Space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) plot has been proposed to control the motor and make the motor work with no rotor confine contingent upon the info parameters that utilization in the simulation. An examination between both of PID tuned and PSO tuned controller affirms that the PSO gives dazzling control highlights to the motor speed and have an edge over the physically changing controller. Thus, this paper present investigation and simulation for the most precise procedures to control the speed reaction and torque reaction of synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM).©2020. CBIORE-IJRED.
