Considering the network-induced delay, the closed-loop networked control systems are usually subject to the delayed state. The traditional method for the study of the networked control systems is mainly to construct a ...

  • Model Predictive Control of Impedance Source Inverter

    The control strategy of the power converter plays a crucial role in ensuring reliable and efficient operation of renewable based distributed generation (DG) systems. In most applications, proportional-integral (PI) based cascaded control structures have been used to control current, voltage, etc. To eliminate the drawbacks of the cascaded control structure and difficulties of the modulation techniques, this chapter examines the model predictive control (MPC) technique for impedance source - Z-source (ZS) and quasi-Z-source (qZS) - three-leg, four-leg, and multiphase inverters. Then, it presents ZS/qZS three-phase three-leg, four-leg, and multiphase (five-phase) inverter topologies, along with a description of the topology, model, and switching schemes for control. After that, the MPC algorithm for ZS/qZS three-phase, three-leg, four-leg, and multiphase (five-phase) inverters are presented. Finally, to prove the addressed MPC strategy, a performance investigation has been carried out with qZS four-leg inverter and simulation results are presented to demonstrate the capabilities of the MPC.

  • PID Control System Implementation

    In this chapter, PI controller implementation is discussed for both current controllers as the inner-loop controllers, and velocity and DC voltage controllers as outer-loop controllers. In particular, the continuous-time controllers are discretized for digital implementation, and the operational constraints imposed by the PWM operations are taken into consideration in the implementation of the PI controllers. In order to avoid integrator windup in the presence of control signal reaching saturation limits, anti-windup mechanisms are proposed together with the digital implementation, which leads to the so called velocity form that has naturally embedded anti-windup mechanisms and is convenient for implementation. A MATLAB tutorial is introduced in this chapter to show how an embedded function can be created for the PI controller with its anti-windup mechanism.

  • Infinite-Horizon Model Predictive Control for Periodic Tasks with Contacts

    Model Predictive Control (MPC), which involves online optimization of a receding-horizon objective, has been effectively used to generate robust and reactive controllers for many problem domains. For tasks involving extreme nonlinearities such as contact, the use of warm-starts, which are essential for efficient optimization, quickly drive the predicted trajectory into bad local minima, leading to failure. In this paper we present a principled method for avoiding this mode of failure, by combining offline trajectory optimization and online MPC, generating robust controllers for complex periodic behavior in domains with contact. We first find an optimal limitcycle offline, and compute a local quadratic approximation of the infinite-horizon Value function around it. We then use this approximation as the terminal cost for the online MPC optimizer. This combination of an offline solution of the infinite-horizon problem with an online MPC controller is known as Infinite Horizon Model Predictive Control (IHMPC), and we show how under certain conditions it can generate the infinite-horizon optimal behavior using finite- horizon optimization. Finally, we present a simulation of a hopping robot controlled by IHMPC. The resulting behavior is robust against simulated perturbations and modeling errors.

  • Grid Integration of Quasi-Z Source Based PV Multilevel Inverter

    This chapter presents a quasi Z-source (qZS) based cascaded H-bridge (CHB) multilevel inverter for the grid integration of photovoltaic (PV) systems. The mixed topology is characterized by high-quality staircase output voltage with low harmonic distortions, independent dc-link voltage compensation with special voltage step-up/down function in a single-stage power conversion, and independent control of power delivery with high reliability. Moreover, a model predictive control (MPC) technique is used to transfer the power to the grid with unity power factor, low THD, low voltage ride-through (LVRT) capability, and anti-islanding protection. The synchronization of the power electronics interface with the grid remains one of the most important issues in the integration of DGs into the smart grids. Islanding protection is an important safety requirement to be addressed in grid connected power electronic systems. The antiislanding protection performance was evaluated for three phase-shift based active islanding detection methods: active frequency drift, slip-mode phase shift, and Sandia frequency shift.

  • Tuning PID Control Systems with Experimental Validations

    In this chapter, sensitivity functions in feedback control systems are introduced to measure the closed-loop control system performance against set- point following, disturbance rejection and noise attenuation in the frequency domain. Current control systems are analyzed for the effects of current sensor errors and harmonics caused by the voltage source inverter used in the implementation of the control system. When velocity control, position control or DC voltage control is required in a cascade control structure, performance robustness in the outer-loop control system is considered where a weighting function is introduced to quantify the difference between the desired closed- loop performance and the actual closed-loop performance. Parameter variations are also studied using Nyquist plots. A large number of experiments are conducted in this chapter to demonstrate the tuning procedures of the PI cascade control systems.
