This paper proposes a novel method for the fast determination of moment of inertia of permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) drive systems. It is based on the use of sinusoidal perturbation signals and can determine the combined moment of inertia within one sinusoidal cycle of perturbation while the influence of viscous friction is eliminated during the modeling process. It does not need the aid of complex system identification algorithms, and thanks to the elimination of influence of viscous friction, the proposed scheme shows higher accuracy than the conventional method without taking into account. Furthermore, its accuracy is also competitive with the conventional method using complex system identification algorithms, for example, the model reference adaptive system (MRAS). Besides, the performance of designed speed regulators using the estimated mechanical parameters and the influence of mismatching of mechanical parameters are also investigated.
