This article proposes a compensation method of position estimation error for high-speed surface-mounted permanent magnet synchronous motors based on robust inductance estimation. The proposed method relies on the variation of the estimated δ-axis back back-electromotive force when a small current is injected into the γ axis. The inductance estimation error is limited within pm !5% when the nominal resistance and inductance vary bf pm 30% of their real values. With the estimated inductance, the position estimation error can be well compensated. Compared with the conventional current-injection method, the proposed method has enhanced robustness against the system noises. Benefiting from this, it is effective to estimate the inductance with a small injected current ( bf 0.5% of the rated current), where the conventional methods fail. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is validated by simulation and experiment results on a 100 kr/min (1.67 kHz) high-speed permanent magnet synchronous machines accurately with 10-kHz sampling frequency.
