This paper presents custom made, DSP-based rapid control prototyping (RCP) systems that are suitable for control engineering education and research. Presented RCP systems provide an easy transition from the model-based control system design in MATLAB/Simulink to embedded DSP-based target implementation. In addition to rapid binary code generation, Lab VIEW(More)
This paper proposed a novel predictive variablestructure-switching-based current controller for a three-phase load driven by a power inverter. The design specifications are robustness to load electrical parameters, fast dynamic response, reduced switching frequency, and simple hardware implementation. In order to meet previous specifications, a sliding mode(More)
An off-line identification method founded on the least-squares approximation technique and a closed-loop disturbance observer is applied for identifying the parameters of a BLDC motor model. No special configuration of the motor is required besides the availability of experimental data for back-EMF, phase currents, rotor position, and rotor speed. This(More)
the DSP2 board, based on the digital signal processor, has been developed at the Institute of Robotic, FERI, University of Maribor. For mentioned board a set of Simulink blocks, so called the DSP2 Library for Simulink, was created under the Real-Time Workshop. These blocks enable easy graphical programming of the different control algorithms under the(More)
A mechatronic system consists of a mechanical system and electric actuators. The presented event-driven control of a mechatronic system has been implemented on a fieldprogrammable gate array (FPGA) platform. The supervisor provides robust, safe, and transparent control, where the finite-state machine (FSM) defines all the possible directions for(More)
This paper proposes the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) implementation of a variable structure system predictive sequential switching control strategy, as applied to a permanent magnet synchronous machine. In the case of ac motor drives, in contrast to conventional vector control where the inverter is not taken into consideration by the controller, the(More)
A mechatronic system consists of a mechanical system and electric actuators. The event-driven control of a mechatronic system was implemented on a field-programmable gate-array (FPGA) platform. The supervisor provides robust, safe, and transparent control, where the FSM defines all the possible directions for implementation. In order make supervisor more(More)
