Sliding-mode control for synchronous electric drives
This book was conceived for specialists and postgraduate students who work in the
field of electrical drive control. It is also ideal for the specialists in control theory
application, and in particular, sliding mode using for control of electrical motors and
power converters. The authors intend to leave easily available reading material besides
published articles and doctoral theses.
The readers are presented with the theory of control systems with sliding mode
applied to electrical motors and power converters. They can learn the methodology of
control design and original algorithms of control and observation.
This book is important from a practical viewpoint, because nowadays practically
all semiconductors devices are used in power electronics as power switches. Switching
possesses myriad attractive inherent properties from a control viewpoint. Sliding mode
control systems supplies high dynamics to systems, invariability of systems to changes
of parameters and exterior loads in the combination with simplicity of design. Unlike
linear control, switching sliding mode control does not replace the control system, but
uses the natural properties of the control plant system effectively to ensure high control
There are very few available books on using sliding mode control for electrical
drives. Unlike other similar books, this book examines in detail the different features
of various types of synchronous machines and converters from the viewpoint of sliding
mode control design.
The manuscript presents a meticulous and detailed analysis of control issues and
mechanical coordinate observation design for the various types of synchronous
machines and various drive control structures. The problem of drive parameters
identification is discussed as well.
The potential of the sliding mode control and observation is demonstrated in
numerical and experimental results for real control plants. /end
