Fictitious reference tuning for the optimal parameter of a feedforward controller in the two-degree-of-freedom control system
Abstract: This paper proposes proportional-integral/proportional gain controller parameter tuning in a two-degrees-of-freedom (2DOF) control system using the fictitious reference iterative tuning (FRIT) method for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) speed control using a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for a high-frequency SiC MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) inverter. The PI-P (proportional-integral/proportional) controller parameters can be tuned using the FRIT method from one-shot experimental data without using a mathematical model of the plant. Particle swarm optimization is used for FRIT optimization. An inverter that uses a SiC MOSFET is presented to achieve high-frequency operation at up to100 kHz using a switching pulse-width modulation (PWM) technique. As a result, a high-responsivity and high-stability PMSM (permanent magnet synchronous motor) control system is achieved, where the speed response follows the ideal response characteristic for both the step response and the disturbance response. High-responsivity and optimal disturbance rejection can be achieved using the 2DOF control system. FPGA-based digital hardware control is used to maximize the switching frequency of the SiC MOSFET inverter. Finally, an experimental system is set up, and experimental results are presented to prove the viability of the proposed method.
