In this study, a current sensor faults tolerant control method is proposed for synchronous machines. The proposed method is based on the estimation of the stator currents. A comparison algorithm between the estimated and measured currents allows detecting a possible fault in the current sensors. Once a fault is detected in the current sensors, the control system is switched to the current sensorless control. This transition to sensorless control mode isachieved quickly without stopping or slowing down the rotor speed. To validate the proposed method, simulations and experimental tests are carried out on a wound rotor synchronous machine.
