Abstract: This paper presents a direct torque control based on multilevel space vector modulation of a double star synchronous machine operating without speed sensor. Each star of the machine is supplied by a five-level diodeclamped inverter. This topology of multilevel inverters represents one of the most interesting solutions to increase voltage and power levels and to achieve high quality voltage waveforms. However, a very important issue in using diode-clamped inverters is the ability to guarantee the stability of the DC-link capacitor voltages. To overcome this problem the multilevel space vector modulation equipped by a balancing strategy is proposed to suppress the unbalance of DC-link capacitor voltages. For achieving high performances control of the multiphase drive, the proposed control method needs accurate information about rotor position and rotor speed. To this end, they are estimated by using Luenberger observer.
