The main objective of this paper is to study the mechanical behavior of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine under different control strategies, supplied by an inverter under fault conditions. For this purpose, two types of control strategies are used, the sliding mode control and the Input-output linearization where the robustness is studied under safe and fault conditions. The studies of performances were carried out, based on time and frequency analysis of the speed and the electromagnetic torque of the drive. This new approach shows that the spectral analysis gives more exploitable information on mechanical quantities and the diagnosis of fault voltage source. Several simulations were carried out to show these performances in the case of a motor powered by a healthy inverter and with an open circuit fault of IGBT.
