  • 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.

  • Control of Pmsg Wecs with Back???to???Back Connected Converters

    This chapter discusses the predictive control of full???scale low???voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) voltage source converters (VSCs) employed in permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) wind energy conversion systems (WECS). The variable voltage and frequency output of PMSG is first rectified to DC by using the generator???side 2L???VSR. An imbalance between DC???link capacitors voltage is undesirable because it can cause high stress and damage to semiconductor devices. Digital control systems play an important role in the power conversion of WECS. They enable the safe, reliable, and efficient operation of power converters to ensure maximum energy capture and compatibility to the grid integration requirements. After initializing the digital controller and calculating the reference generator and grid currents, the PCC algorithm enters an iterative loop where the generator and grid currents are predicted and cost function minimization is performed. The control objectives of PMSG WECS can be achieved by regulating the stator currents, torque and flux, active and reactive powers, and rotor speed.

  • Control of Pmsg Wecs with Passive Generator???Side Converters

    This chapter deals with the low???voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) passive generator???side (PGS)???converters???based Type 4 PMSG WECS and the digital control using model predictive control (MPC). The control system uses only feedback signals and does not require the model and parameters of PMSG. The model of inductor current and DC???link capacitors voltage is presented in terms of boost converter parameters and switching states. The multilevel boost converters are used in conjunction with multilevel diode???clamped inverters to increase WECS operating voltages. The feedback signals measured variables from the generator side, DC link, and grid side are provided to the intermediate DC or DC converter and GSC control systems. Two individual control loops can be developed because of the decoupled nature of the MSC and GSC. The control objectives can be interchanged between the MSC and GSC. The DC or DC boost converter can handle the regulation of the net DC???bus voltage, whereas the GSC can perform MPPT operation. The grid???side NPC inverter controls the reactive power and net DC???bus voltage through the regulation of decomposed grid currents.

  • Control of Scig Wecs With Voltage Source Converters

    This chapter deals with the predictive control of full???scale low???voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) voltage source converters (VSCs) employed in SCIG wind energy conversion systems (WECS). The generated power is instantaneously injected to a utility grid via the full???scale converter connected between the generator stator and grid terminals. The generator???side 2L voltage source rectifier (2L???VSR) enables full variable???speed operation by controlling the output voltage amplitude and frequency. The overall SCIG model includes both electrical and mechanical variables. The electrical model includes stator voltages, currents and fiux linkages, and rotor fiux linkages, whereas the mechanical model includes the dynamics of rotor speed, moment of inertia, and electromagnetic torque. The electromagnetic torque is computed by the cross product of estimated stator flux vector and measured stator current vector. The perturbations in stator voltage measurement and stator winding resistance lead to inaccurate flux estimation, especially at low???speed operation.

  • 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.
