Electrical action of higher performance of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) requires advanced strategies related to complex dynamic behaviour of these machines. In this paper, we propose a sliding mode technique to control the field-oriented Permanent magnet synchronous machine. The use of the nonlinear sliding mode method provides very good performance for motor operation and robustness of the control law despite the external/internal perturbations. Simulation results are given to highlight the performances of the proposed control technique under load disturbances and parameter uncertainties.
