In this article, a novel dynamic-decoupled active damping current controller is proposed for an LCL-equipped high-speed permanent magnet synchronous machine. Compared with the conventional stationary current-control method for the LCL-type system, the proposed method is established in the synchronous rotating frame for improving the current transient performance. When taking the controller into the synchronous coordinate, there are two following challenges: first, the synchronous resonance frequency varying in a wide range because of the synchronous coordinate transformation, and second, eliminating the coupling between the dq coordinate. To address these issues, an improved synchronous capacitor-current-feedback active damping method is designed based on arbitrary pole assignment and is significantly effective for the LCL resonance within the Nyquist frequency. Moreover, a novel dynamic-decoupled motor-current controller is proposed to eliminate the coupling between the dq-axis motor current. The gain selection method is discussed to acquire sufficient phase margin and gain margin. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by driving the tested motor to 72 kr/min.
