  journal={Iet Power Electronics},
This study presents the implementation of a hybrid control strategy that is applied to a brushless AC (BLAC) motor drive. Hybrid control is a general approach for control of switching-based hybrid systems (HS). This class of HS includes a continuous process, controlled by a discrete controller with a finite number of states. The overall stability of the system is shown with the use of Lyapunov technique. The Lyapunov functions contain a term that penalises incremental energy of control error… 
PMSM sliding mode FPGA-based control for torque ripple reduction
This paper presents a torque ripple reduction approach to the direct torque control of a permanent magnet synchronous motor, using a sliding mode control technique. A distinctive feature of this

A unified framework for hybrid control: model and optimal control theory
This work introduces a mathematical model of hybrid systems as interacting collections of dynamical systems, evolving on continuous-variable state spaces and subject to continuous controls and discrete transitions, and develops a theory for synthesizing hybrid controllers for hybrid plants in all optimal control framework.
