Due to its own structural characteristics, permanent magnet synchronous linear motors (PMSLMs) have unstable motor parameters during operation due to the end effect and the inherent magnetic circuit instability. At the same time, linear motors have the characteristics of reciprocating switching motion and high-speed positioning motion in industrial applications, thus placing high demands on the controller. In order to improve the performance of the PMSLM, this paper firstly studies the linear

Then, a state observer based on the sliding mode state observer (SMO) is built to replace the traditional speed sensor and a super-twisting sliding mode controller is designed. The double-closed loop control of the speed and the use of high-order sliding mode control features effectively reduce the chattering of the system and reduce the impact of the observation error brought by the observer on the system. The adaptive sliding mode control strategy is used to effectively suppress the influence of the boundaryless uncertainty interference on the system and reduce the influence of the observation error brought by the observer on the system. This paper also combines the linear motor experimental platform to further verify the control scheme based on the super-twisting sliding mode non-sensing linear motor. The simulation and experimental results show that SMO has accurate speed and position tracking performance, the system's chattering is significantly reduced, the control precision is excellent, and the introduction of adaptive sliding mode controller enhances the robustness of the system.
