This paper proposes a robust control based on generalized predictive control (GPC) applied to the current control loop for a switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive. The proposed controller has two degrees of freedom where the setpoint tracking is decoupled from the load disturbance rejection at the nominal case. In addition a filter design is proposed in order to achieve good relationship among robustness, load disturbance rejection, and noise attenuation. Simulation and real experimental results are shown to illustrate the controller performance.
