1. A power steering system comprising:

  • a torque modifier module that generates a modified torque command in response to a current sensor fault, a magnitude of the modified torque command changes over a time period; and

    a feedforward selection module that applies a dynamic feedforward compensation to a motor current command, the dynamic feedforward compensation based on motor inductance and motor-circuit resistance, thereby generating a motor voltage that is applied to a motor of the power steering system, the dynamic feedforward compensation modifies a frequency response of the power steering system, the motor current command is based on the modified torque command.
