The accurate information of the initial rotor position is very critical for successful starting of the Surface-mounted Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (SPMSM). In order to solve the problems of low accuracy and unreliability in the conventional estimation strategy, in this paper, an improved initial rotor position estimation strategy without any position sensor for SPMSM at standstill is proposed based on rectangular pulse voltage injection. In the work, when the second series of pulse

The improved strategy enhanced reliability and raised the initial position estimation accuracy from 7.5° to 1.875°. The improved strategy does not need any additional hardware. Experimental results demonstrate the validity and usefulness of the improved strategy.
