Aiming at the high demand for the torque response speed and torque pulsation of the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) Electric Power Steering (EPS) system, this paper proposes to apply the Model Predictive Current Control to the all-terrain vehicle EPS system. A Novel Three-Vector Model Predictive Current Control (N3V-MPCC) is proposed in this paper to reduce the current ripple and reduce the calculation load. Two effective voltage vectors and a zero vector are selected in the control period through

Simulation and experimental results show that, compared with PID cascade Field Oriented Control (PI-FOC), N3C-MPCC can effectively reduce the ripple current of the d-axis and the q-axis. In the simulated electric power mode, the q-axis current ripple of the N3V-MPCC is reduced by 66.67%. Experimental results show that the current ripple of the motor is reduced by 60%, and the torque pulsation is reduced by 62.5%. Therefore, N3V-MPCC has a faster current response speed and smooth steering torque.
