This paper presents the design and implementation of a simple fuzzy logic controller (FLC) for a DC-DC buck converter based on the PIC18F4550 microcontroller to control the lead acid battery charging voltage in solar cells applications. For cost consideration, an inexpensive 8-bit microcontroller is selected to program and implement the FLC… (More)
This paper presents an adaptive control strategy for wind energy conversion systems. The control scheme uses a B-spline artificial neural network for tuning controllers when the system is subjected to disturbances. Voltage-source converter is controlled in a synchronous orthogonal d-q frame by an adaptive PI controller. The B-spline neural network must be… (More)
This paper is aimed to exhibit the performance of the static compensator (StatCom) as a mean for controlling the power system voltage magnitude on those buses surrounding the neighborhood where the StatCom is embedded. In order to attain such purposes a B-spline Neural Network-based control is proposed. Results show the strategy's possibilities.
