In this paper, an effective finite-control-set model predictive controller (FCS-MPC) is proposed for an active dual output rectifier. The topology under study is a 5-level packed U cells (PUC5) rectifier. The optimized cost function is designed based on the capacitors' voltages and current errors. The Capacitors' reference voltages and the peak value of the reference grid current are used to normalize the errors within the cost function. The peak value of the current reference is generated by a PI controller using the capacitors' voltage errors. The presented results show a proper tracking of the rectifier's dual output voltages while ensuring a unity power factor.

Model Predictive Controller Utilized as an Observer for Inter-Turn Short Circuit Detection in Induction Motors
Şahin, İlker; Keysan, Ozan (2020-12-01)
In this paper, a novel and non-invasive stator inter-turn short circuit (ITSC) online detection method is presented for an induction machine (IM), driven by a two-level voltage source inverter (2L-VSI) via finite control set model predictive control (FCS-MPC). The main idea of the proposed method is to utilize the controller itself as an observer: under the presence of a fault, the distribution of inverter switching states significantly deviates from the original balanced case. Therefore, by inspecting the ...

Adaptive Nonlinear Control Combined With Unscented Kalman Filter for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Fed by AC/DC/AC Converter
Titaouine, A.; Taibi, D.; Bennis, O.; Benchabane, F.; Boumaraf, R.; Yahia, K. (2011-09-10)
In this paper, a adaptive non-linear controller is presented for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) sensorless drives. The adaptive non-linear controller is designed based on an input-output feedback linearization control technique. The unscented Kalman filter is used to estimate the speed, position and load torque. The PMSM is fed by an indirect power electronics converter. This indirect converter is controlled by a sliding mode technique that enables minimization of harmonics introduced by the line...
Stability Analysis of AC-DC Unity Power Factor PWM Boost Rectifier with Hysteresis Current Controller
Vardar, K.; AKPINAR, EYUP (2011-09-10)
In this paper, the hysteresis current controller is modeled with PWM rectifier for stability analysis and design of dc link PI controller. The results of linear model are compared with the detailed simulation results during starting period of the rectifier. The stable operating ranges of system parameters like hysteresis band width, boost inductance, dc link capacitor and sampling frequency are verified by the detailed dedicated simulation program in Matlab/Simulink interlinked to TMS320F2812. The results h...
Optimization of Power Conversion Efficiency in Threshold Self-Compensated UHF Rectifiers With Charge Conservation Principle
Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; KOÇER, FATİH; Külah, Haluk (2017-09-01)
This paper presents a compact model for threshold self-compensated rectifiers that can be used to optimize circuit parameters early in the design phase instead of time-consuming transient simulations. A design procedure is presented for finding the optimum aspect ratio of transistors used in the converter and number of rectifying stages to achieve the maximum power conversion efficiency. In the presented analysis, the relation between the power conversion efficiency and the load current over the variation o...
