This paper proposes a battery charger solution based on the Zeta DC/DC converter to provide a general interface between batteries and microgrid direct current (DC) buses. This solution enables to interface batteries and DC buses with voltage conversion ratios lower, equal, and higher than one using the same components and without redesigning the control system, thus ensuring global stability. The converter controller is designed to require only the measurement of a single inductor current, instead of both inductors currents, without reducing the system flexibility and stability. The controller stability is demonstrated using the sliding-mode theory, and a design procedure for the parameters is developed to ensure a desired bus performance. Finally, simulations and experiments validate the performance of the proposed solution under realistic operation conditions.

One of the main problems in small hydro-power plants that are locally used is their frequency control system. In this paper, a suggested control system based on the fuzzy sliding mode controller is presented for controlling the network frequency. Also, the proposed control strategy is compared with a PI controller and conventional sliding mode controller. In order to regulate the membership functions of fuzzy system more accurately, the particle swarm optimization algorithm is also applied. Moreover, because of unavailability of the control system variables, an estimator is suggested for estimating and identifying the system variables. This estimator will reduce the costs of implementing the control method. The simulation results show the ability of controller system in controlling the local network frequency in the presence of load and parameter’s variations.

In this research, the author presents the model of the two-link robot arm and its dynamic equations. Based on these dynamic equations, the author builds the sliding mode controller for each joint of the robot. The tasks of the controllers are controlling the Torque in each Joint of the robot in order that the angle coordinates of each link coincide with the desired values. The proposed algorithm and robot model are built on Matlab-Simulink to investigate the system quality. The results show that the quality of the control system is very high: the response angles of each link quickly reach the desired values, and the static error equal to zero.

This paper considers design procedure of fast locking time self-tuning [Formula: see text] biquadratic band-pass filter with nonlinear sliding mode control. A sliding mode controller is building block of the phase control loop (PCL) involved to push central frequency to reach input signal frequency very fast, approximately 100–200[Formula: see text]ns. The sliding mode controller is realized by using a tunable delay line, enabling optimal filter locking time for different input signal frequencies. The filter possesses low sensitivity to component discrepancy and is applied as a selective amplifier. The 0.13[Formula: see text][Formula: see text]m SiGe BiCMOS technology has been utilized for design and verification of the presented filter. This filter has central frequency up to 220[Formula: see text]MHz, quality factor [Formula: see text] and 25[Formula: see text]dB gain.

Attitude Control System(ACS); Terminal; Adaptive; Integral operator Abstract: Attitude Control System (ACS) with high performance, high precision, and high reliability is the kernel technology of the research of spacecraft, which directly affects the whole performance of spacecraft. Hence, a global fast integral operator Terminal adaptive sliding-mode controller is proposed to come true the high performance control. The theory of this controller is to introduce the limited time mechanics—Terminal mode to the sliding-mode control and introduce the integral operator to the sliding-mode plane, which can realize the convergence of spacecraft attitude in “limited time” in the condition of serious disturbance , in order to enhance the performance of fast response. At last, the simulation results demonstrate the high reliability and advantages of the control approach.

An integral sliding mode controller (ISMC) which employs particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm to search for optimal values of the parameters of the integral sliding manifold as well as the gains of the controller is proposed in this work. We considered the swing-up and stabilization of the cart-inverted pendulum system which is assumed to be affected by uncertainties. First, we determined the swing-up and stabilization conditions of the control system by using the internal dynamics of the cart-inverted pendulum system and sliding mode dynamics. A PSO algorithm is then used to search for the optimal values of the ISMC design parameters that satisfy the stabilization condition with the aim of improving the transient performance of the control system. To mitigate the chattering phenomenon, a saturation function of the integral sliding variable was used in the discontinuous control law. Simulation results on swing-up and stabilization of the cart-inverted pendulum system revealed improvement in transient behaviour by reducing settling time (by 52.61%), overshoots (by 45.56%) and required track length for cart movement (by 68.34%).

The wide range of step-up and step-down input-output voltage characteristic of the Cuk converter makes it a good candidate to interface photovoltaic arrays in both classical and distributed maximum power point tracking systems. Because its two inductor structure, Cuk converters have continuous input and output currents, which reduce the additional filtering elements usually required for interfacing dc/dc converter topologies. However, PV systems based on Cuk converters usually do not provide formal proofs of global stability under realistic conditions, which makes impossible to ensure a safe operation of the PV installation. Therefore, this paper proposes a high performance sliding-mode controller for PV systems based on Cuk converters, which regulates the PV voltage in agreement with the commands imposed by a MPPT algorithm, rejecting both load and environmental perturbations, and ensuring global stability for real operation conditions. Finally, the performance of the regulated PV system is tested using both simulations and experiments.
