Sliding Mode Control for Synchronous Electric Drives, Balkema
- Ryvkin, E. Palomar Lever
Solar photovoltaics is one of the most promising technologies for the non-carbon based electricity production. Power electronics is therefore necessary. In this paper a converter is analyzed which makes it possible to control the mean value of the output voltage, this is e.g. the voltage across a DC machine (and therefore the speed) from zero up to three times of the input voltage. The converter is also useful for charging batteries. The model of the drive, the design of the devices, the control features are discussed, feed-forward control based on solving the limit cycle is designed, some experimental results, and hints for the design are given.
