Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing is increasingly recognized as an effective approach in the design of power electronics controls. A high-performance real-time simulation environment is necessary to obtain high-fidelity results in HIL simulations. This paper presents the detailed implementation of a very-low-cost multisolver hard real-time simulation(More)
Monitoring systems are expected to play a major role in active distribution grids, and the design of the measurement infrastructure is a critical element for an effective operation. The use of any available and newly installed, though heterogeneous, metering device providing more accurate and real-time measurement data offers a new paradigm for the(More)
Strong timing requirements and complex interactions with controlled elements complicate the design and validation of software controllers. Different techniques have been proposed to cope with these problems during the different development steps: for example, differential equations for modeling controlled elements, the IEC 1131-3 notations for designing the(More)
An approach to the analysis of ac side current is presented for the purpose of identification of faults in the stator phase resistance of an ac induction motor drive. The method relies on the correlation between wavelet decomposition coefficients of the current in healthy and faulty conditions. The findings highlight that the fault causes waveform(More)
In this paper, the interfacing schemes for PowerHardware-in-the-Loop (PHIL) simulations are studied. In Part I, different simulation/hardware interfaces are introduced, and a novel interfacing scheme based on the time-variant first-order approximation of dynamics of the hardware under test (HUT) is proposed. The performances of different interfaces are(More)
This paper shows the performance of a state estimator based on a decentralized information filter applied to an electric power system for avionic and naval applications. The main characteristics of this type of approach are firstly the increased computational efficiency, due to the parallel distribution of the computational burden among the local(More)
— The theory of synergetic control is introduced in a power electronics context in a previous paper. In this paper we review the theory, then we focus on a comparison with the sliding mode approach. Common elements and main differences are underlined and illustrated through a comparative simulation example. The main advantages of synergetic control are that(More)
Abstract –This paper proposes an innovative approach to the design of algorithms for indirect measurements based on a Polynomial Chaos Observer (PCO). A PCO allows the introduction and management of uncertainty in the process. The structure of this algorithm is based on the standard closed-loop structure of an observer originally introduced by Luenberger.(More)
