This paper presents the design of second-order sliding mode controllers for semi-active control using magneto-rheological (MR) dampers. The approach can be useful in applications involving shock absorbers but here our main concern is the suppression of building vibrations induced by dynamic loadings such as earthquakes or strong winds. The MR dampers have(More)
This paper presents an adaptive hysteresis band current controller applied to hybrid power filters to compensate harmonics and the reactive power of a nonlinear load. This method changes the hysteresis bandwidth according to modulation frequency, supply voltage, dc capacitor voltage and slope of the reference compensator current wave. The hysteresis band(More)
This paper presents an efficient control strategy for magnetorheological (MR) dampers embedded in building structures to mitigate quake-induced vibrations. In this work, MR dampers are used as semi-active devices, taking the advantages of the fail-safe operation and low power requirement. By using a static hysteresis model for the MR damper, a suitable(More)
This paper presents the design of a new hybrid filter for quality improvement of power systems in unbalanced conditions. This filter includes a variable passive filter in parallel with an active filter. The passive part is designed with a varying inductance to reduce the rating of the active part. By using this proposed filter it is possible to compensate(More)
