Abstract

A generator controller for controlling a permanent magnet generator where each phase of the generator (20) is connectable to a DC link (30, 32) via electrically controllable switches (26, 28), the controller characterised by a data processor (42) adapted to receive a measurement of generator current output (Ia, Ib, Ic, Im) and a demand current (I*), and to form a current error between the demanded value and the measured generator current; derive a target voltage as a function of the current error; and form control signals for the electrically controllable switches as a function of the target voltage.
