Predictive Control of Power Converters and Electrical Drives
Describes the general principles and current research into ModelPredictive Control (MPC); the most up-to-date control methodfor power converters and drives
The book starts with an introduction to the subject before thefirst chapter on classical control methods for power converters anddrives. This covers classical converter control methods andclassical electrical drives control methods. The next chapter onModel predictive control first looks at predictive control methodsfor power converters and drives and presents the basic principlesof MPC. It then looks at MPC for power electronics and drives. Thethird chapter is on predictive control applied to power converters.It discusses: control of a three-phase inverter; control of aneutral point clamped inverter; control of an active front endrectifier, and; control of a matrix converter. In the middle of thebook there is Chapter four - Predictive control applied to motordrives. This section analyses predictive torque control ofindustrial machines and predictive control of permanent magnetsynchronous motors. Design and implementation issues of modelpredictive control is the subject of the final chapter. Thefollowing topics are described in detail: cost function selection;weighting factors design; delay compensation; effect of modelerrors, and prediction of future references. While there arehundreds of books teaching control of electrical energy using pulsewidth modulation, this will be the very first book published inthis new topic.
Unique in presenting a completely new theoretic solution tocontrol electric power in a simple way
Discusses the application of predictive control in motordrives, with several examples and case studies
Matlab is included on a complementary website so the reader canrun their own simulations
