The current sampling errors in dual-motor group (DMG) cause more adverse effects on system performance than that in a single motor system. To solve this problem, in this article, a synergistic correction strategy for the abovementioned problems in DMG fed by double inverters is proposed. First, an orthogonal pulsewidth modulation carriers strategy is proposed to imitate the 'shutdown' status of motor subsystems to obtain ascertainable current relations. Then, the current values with sampling errors in DMG at several 'fixed' sampling points are derived, based on which the sampling errors in DMG are corrected. Meanwhile, the rules for the action time of active vectors and output voltage range in each inverter are analyzed for each 'fixed' sampling point. Finally, the proposed strategy is verified by experimental results on a DMG system, which show that the sampling errors can be precisely estimated with the proposed strategy.
