PID and Predictive Control of Electrical Drives and Power Converters using MATLAB / Simulink

A timely introduction to current research on PID and predictive control by one of the leading authors on the subject
PID and Predictive Control of Electric Drives and Power Supplies using MATLAB/Simulink examines the classical control system strategies, such as PID control, feed-forward control and cascade control, which are widely used in current practice. The authors share their experiences in actual design and implementation of the control systems on laboratory test-beds, taking the reader from the fundamentals through to more sophisticated design and analysis. The book contains sections on closed-loop performance analysis in both frequency domain and time domain, presented to help the designer in selection of controller parameters and validation of the control system. Continuous-time model predictive control systems are designed for the drives and power supplies, and operational constraints are imposed in the design. Discrete-time model predictive control systems are designed based on the discretization of the physical models, which will appeal to readers who are more familiar with sampled-data control system. Soft sensors and observers will be discussed for low cost implementation. Resonant control of the electric drives and power supply will be discussed to deal with the problems of bias in sensors and unbalanced three phase AC currents. Brings together both classical control systems and predictive control systems in a logical style from introductory through to advanced levels Demonstrates how simulation and experimental results are used to support theoretical analysis and the proposed design algorithms MATLAB and Simulink tutorials are given in each chapter to show the readers how to take the theory to applications.
Includes MATLAB and Simulink software using xPC Target for teaching purposes A companion website is available
Researchers and industrial engineers; and graduate students on electrical engineering courses will find this a valuable resource.

PID and Predictive Control of Electrical Drives and Power Converters using MATLAB / Simulink


About This Book

Electrical drives play a critical role in electromechanical energy conversions. They are seen everywhere in our daily life from the cooling fans, washing machines to computers. They are the fundamental building blocks in manufacturing, transportation, mineral processing, wind energy and many other industries. For the last several decades, the advances of electronically switched semiconductors in the form of power electronics have made AC motor drives gain more prominence over the DC machines in industries since they allow a direct connection to power grids via grid connected power converters and have a more reliable physical structure. The grid connected three phase power converter has wide applications in renewable energy generation.

This book gives an introduction to the automatic control of electrical drives and grid connected three phase power converters, and to recent developments in design and implementation. When they are combined together as one unit, it will provide a direct connection for the electrical drives to the power grid for electromechanical energy conversions and renewable wind energy applications. In the context of control system design, electrical drives and grid connected three phase power converters share similar characteristics in their dynamic models and use the same type of semiconductors as actuators in the implementation of control systems. Therefore, in this book, electrical drives and power converters will be studied as individual components of the larger system and examined in the same framework.

As electrical drives and power converters have restricted operations imposed by electronically switched semiconductors, their operational constraints are paramount in the design and implementation of the control systems. In this regard, model predictive control has an established reputation in successfully handling the operational constraints in an optimal manner. Two chapters of this book will be devoted to seeking new predictive control technologies that address the specific needs of controlling electrical drives and power converters, and an additional two chapters will apply the existing predictive control technologies to these systems. Since PID control systems are used in the majority of industrial electrical drives and power converters, understanding these control systems and having the capability to design and implement them are important to a control engineer. There are three chapters in the book that will systematically cover PID control system design, PID control system implementation with anti-windup mechanisms and tuning of PID control systems. All control systems presented in this book have been experimentally validated using self-built test-beds with industrial sized motors. To assist the reader, tutorials about the real-time control system implementation and the physical model based simulators are presented in this book.

This book is intended for readers who have completed or are about to complete four years engineering studies with some basic knowledge in electrical and control systems. The targeted readers are students, practitioners, instructors and researchers who wish to learn electrical motor control and power converter control. The book is self-contained with MATLAB/Simulink tutorials and supported with simulation and experimental results. It is worth mentioning that the material contained in the first five chapters is aimed at readers who are working or are going to work in the relevant engineering field.
Outline of This Book

The structure of the book is illustrated by the block diagram as shown in Figure 0.1 . There are ten chapters in this book, covering the topics of mathematical modeling, control of semiconductor switches, PID control system design, implementation and tuning, Finite Control Set (FCS)-predictive control in both and reference frames, traditional
