A driving system for gearless traction machine plays an very important role in controlling elevator’s running. And its performances have a direct effect on the elevator’s performance. On the basic of the mathematical model of the gearless permanent magnetic synchronous machine (PMSM), id=0 vector control method and space vector pulse width modulation method are used in the control system. Then making a simulation on the system designed by MATLAB/SIMULINK. The simulation results show that the control method is feasible.
