This paper deals with a flatness-based control of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine fed by a Voltage Source Inverter. This control method offers some benefits in both transients states and bandwidth terms. Although one-loop control architecture is proposed, some improvements to saturate the state variables are discussed to prevent the system from having any uncontrollable behavior and thus to ensure its robustness when disturbances occur.
