A quasi-sliding mode control (QSMC) to suppress chaos for a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) with parameters fall into a certain area is proposed in this paper. Especially, based on the new concept of QSMC, continuous control input is obtained to avoid chattering phenomenon. As expected, the system states can be driven to zero or into a predictable and adjustable bound even when uncertainties are present. Numerical simulations demonstrate the validity of the proposed QSMC design method.
