The aim of this paper is to review the state-of-the-art of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technologies and their contribution to industrial control applications. Authors start by addressing various research fields which can exploit the advantages of FPGAs. The features of these devices are then presented, followed by their corresponding design tools.(More)
The aim of this paper is to present a fully integrated solution for synchronous motor control. The implemented controller is based on Actel Fusion field-programmable gate array (FPGA). The objective of this paper is to evaluate the ability of the proposed fully integrated solution to ensure all the required performances in such applications, particularly in(More)
This article presents the benefits of using field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based controllers for power electronics and drive applications. For this purpose, an algorithm perspective is first proposed, where it is stated that, depending on the intrinsic parallelism properties as well as level of complexity, it makes sense to implement each control(More)
This paper presents a comparison between a standard Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based controller and a customizable System on Programmable Chip (cSoC) digital solution. This comparison is performed through the implementation of a Direct Power Control (DPC) for three-phase Pulse Width Modulation. It concerns principally the design methodology, time(More)
This paper presents the design of a digital Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filter for active filtering applications, which are useful for the correction of harmonic currents produced by non linear loads. The designed hardware architecture of the digital IIR filter was coded in VHDL (Very high speed integrated Hardware Description Language) for Field(More)
This paper focuses on sensor fault detection and isolation (FDI) for electrical systems. A new, easy and fast FDI algorithm is proposed, keeping system performances unchanged under certain faulty sensor conditions when reconfigurations are available. The proposed FDI algorithm is derived from a parity space approach and is based on temporal redundancies. It(More)
This paper presents the concept of dynamic reconfiguration between two sliding mode current controllers for synchronous motor drives. The first one is a Direct Sliding Mode (DSM) current controller, which is based on a switching table synthesized via sliding mode theory. The second one is an Indirect Sliding Mode (ISM) current controller that computes a(More)
This paper deals with embedded real-time (RT) simulators applied in power electronic applications and implemented in low-cost field-programmable gate arrays. Indeed, such simulators' intellectual properties (IPs) are not only intended for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing but also can be advantageously embedded within digital controllers to ensure(More)
This paper presents a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) implementation of a Direct Power Control (DPC) of three-phase Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) boost rectifier. The DPC control was synthesized via the sliding mode theory. The main interest of using such theory is the robustness of the resulting control to parameters variations and external(More)
