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.

A newly hybrid nature-inspired algorithm called HSSGWOA is presented with the combination of the salp swarm algorithm (SSA) and grey wolf optimizer (GWO). The major idea is to combine the salp swarm algorithm's exploitation ability with the grey wolf optimizer's exploration ability to generate both variants' strength. The proposed algorithm uses to tune the parameters of the integral sliding mode controller (ISMC) that design to improve the dynamic performance of the two-link flexible joint manipulator. The efficiency and the capability of the proposed hybrid algorithm are evaluated based on the selected test functions. It is clear that when compared to other algorithms like SSA, GWO, differential evolution (DE), gravitational search algorithm (GSA), particles swarm optimization (PSO), and whale optimization algorithm (WOA). The ISMC parameters were tuned using the SSA, which was then compared to the HSSGWOA algorithm. The simulation results show the capabilities of the proposed algorithm, which gives an enhancement percentage of 57.46% compared to the standard algorithm for one of the links, and 55.86% for the other.

In this paper, a novel data-driven model-free adaptive fractional-order sliding mode controller with prescribed performance is proposed for the shape memory alloy (SMA) actuator. Due to the strong asymmetric saturated hysteresis nonlinear characteristics of the SMA actuators, it is not easy to establish an accurate model and develop an effective controller. Therefore, we present a controller without using the model of the SMA actuators. In other words, the proposed controller depends merely on the input/output (I/O) data of the SMA actuators. To obtain the reasonable compensation for hysteresis, enhance the noise robustness of the controller, and reduce the chattering, a fractional-order sliding mode controller with memory characteristics is employed to improve the performance of the controller. In addition, the prescribed performance control (PPC) strategy is introduced in our work to guarantee the tracking errors converge to a sufficiently small boundary and the convergence rate is not less than a predetermined value which are significant and considerable in practical engineering applications of the SMA actuator. Finally, experiments are carried out, and results reveal the effectiveness and success of the proposed controller. Comparisons with the classical Proportional Integral Differential (PID), model-free adaptive control (MFAC), and model-free adaptive sliding mode control (MFAC-SMC) are also performed.

Several control strategies have been proposed for the trajectory tracking problem of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV). Most of them are model-based, hence, detailed knowledge of the parameters of the robot is needed. Few works consider a finite-time convergence in their controllers, which offers strong robustness and fast convergence compared with asymptotic or exponential solutions. Those finite-time controllers do not permit the users to predefine the convergence time, which can be useful for a more efficient use of the robot’s energy. This paper presents the experimental validation of a model-free high-order Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) with finite-time convergence in a predefined time. The convergence time is introduced by the simple change of a time-base parameter. The aim is to validate the controller so it can be implemented for cooperative missions where the communication is limited or null. Results showed that the proposed controller can drive the robot to the desired depth and heading trajectories in the predefined time for all the cases, reducing the error by up to 75% and 41% when compared with a PID and the same SMC with asymptotic convergence. The energy consumption was reduced 35% and 50% when compared with those same controllers.

In this paper, a novel sliding mode controller which requires partial state feedback is proposed for double-pendulum overhead cranes subject to unknown payload parameters and unknown external disturbances. Firstly, it is theoretically proved that the hook and payload tend to their respective equilibrium points concurrently. Secondly, a decoupling transformation is performed on the original nonlinear dynamics of double-pendulum overhead cranes. The novel sliding mode controller that does not require the prior information and motion signals of the payload is designed based on the decoupled nonlinear dynamics. Then, the asymptotic stability of the equilibrium point of double-pendulum overhead cranes is proved by rigorous analysis. Finally, several simulations are conducted to validate the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed controller.

With the development of aerospace technology, more and more scientific activities are carried out in the universe. Due to the microgravity environment of space, the control of the 6-DOF platform is different from those on the earth. First, a virtual prototype model of the 6-DOF non-contact platform was built in ADAMS. The dynamics model was developed based on the Newton–Euler method. Then, the 6-DOF backstepping sliding mode controller and disturbance observer were designed in MATLAB/Simulink. Finally, by combining the virtual prototype model in ADAMS and the control system in MATLAB, the co-simulation model was proposed. According to the simulation results, the 6-DOF backstepping sliding mode controller can well complete the positioning, 3D trajectory tracking, and vibration isolation tasks of non-contact 6-DOF platform. Quantitatively, the spatial error of backstepping sliding mode controller’s 3D trajectory tracking is only 50% of the ordinary sliding mode control and it is 20% of the nonlinear propotional-derivative-integral.
