This paper presents simulation and control of synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM).
The motor speed is controlled by using Traditional PID controller that have been used in
cascaded form. The Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is used to find the optimal parameters
of the PID controller. Lead-Lag controller introduce in the cascaded controller as a second
stage of control. Space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) scheme proposed to control
the motor by using variable input voltage. A comparison between the manually tuned and PSO
tuned cascade controller shows that the PSO give amazing control characteristics for the motor
speed and have advantage over the manually tuning controller
