This paper exhibits an advanced observer-based position-tracking controller for hybrid-type stepping motors with consideration of parameter and load uncertainties. As the main contribution, a current sensorless observer-based pole-zero cancellation speed controller is devised for the outer loop position-tracking controller including the convergence rate boosting mechanism. The features of this study are summarized as follows; first, the pole-zero cancellation angular acceleration error observer for the inner loop speed controller, second, the pole-zero cancellation speed control forcing the order of the controlled speed error dynamics to be 1, and, third, the outer loop position control incorporating the first-order target tracking system with its convergence rate booster. The resultant effectiveness is verified on a 10-W stepping motor control system.
