In this paper, an enhanced Integral Sliding Mode Control (ISMC) for mechanical speed of an Induction Motor (IM) is presented and experimentally validated. The design of the proposed controller has been done in the d-q synchronous reference frame and indirect Field Oriented Control (FOC). Global asymptotic speed tracking in the presence of model uncertainties and load torque variations has been guaranteed by using an enhanced ISMC surface. Moreover, this controller provides a faster speed convergence rate compared to the conventional ISMC and the Proportional Integral methods, and it eliminates the steady-state error. Furthermore, the chattering phenomenon is reduced by using a switching sigmoid function. The stability of the proposed controller under parameter uncertainties and load disturbances has been provided by using the Lyapunov stability theory. Finally, the performance of this control method is verified through numerical simulations and experimental tests, getting fast dynamics and good robustness for IM drives.

AbstractTo improve transportation capacity, dual overhead crane systems (DOCSs) are playing an increasingly important role in the transportation of large/heavy cargos and containers. Unfortunately, when trying to deal with the control problem, current methods fail to fully consider such factors as external disturbances, input dead zones, parameter uncertainties, and other unmodeled dynamics that DOCSs usually suffer from. As a result, dramatic degradation is caused in the control performance, which badly hinders the practical applications of DOCSs. Motivated by this fact, this paper designs a neural network-based adaptive sliding mode control (SMC) method for DOCS to solve the aforementioned issues, which achieves satisfactory control performance for both actuated and underactuated state variables, even in the presence of matched and mismatched disturbances. The asymptotic stability of the desired equilibrium point is proved with rigorous Lyapunov-based analysis. Finally, extensive hardware experimental results are collected to verify the efficiency and robustness of the proposed method.

This chapter develops a robust decentralized voltage tracker for islanded MGs. The proposed controller is robust against the plug and play operation of the MG, loads, and line parameter uncertainties. The problem is solved in the framework of linear matrix inequality (LMI). The proposed robust control represents the load changes and the parameter variations of lines connecting the DGs as a norm-bounded uncertainty. The proposed controller utilizes local measurements from DGs (i.e., it is totally decentralized). Control decentralization is accomplished by decomposing the global system into subsystems. The effect of the rest of the system on a specific subsystem is considered as a disturbance to minimize (disturbance rejection control). The controller is designed by the invariant-sets (approximated by the invariant ellipsoids). Different time-domain simulations are carried out as connecting and disconnected one or more DGs, connecting and disconnecting local loads DGs and transmission line parameters variation.

Abstract The Sun's motion through the interstellar medium leads to an interstellar neutral (ISN) wind through the heliosphere. Several ISN species, including He, moderately depleted by ionization are observed with pickup ions and directly imaged. Since 2009, analyzed Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) observations returned a precise 4D parameter tube associated with the bulk velocity vector and the temperature of ISN flow distribution. This 4D parameter tube is typically expressed in terms of the ISN speed, the inflow latitudinal direction, and the temperature as a function of the inflow longitudinal direction and the local flow Mach number. We have used IBEX observations and those from other spacecraft to reduce statistical parameter uncertainties: V ISN ∞ = 25.99 ± 0.18 km s−1, λ ISN ∞ = 75 .° 28 ± 0 .° 13 , β ISN ∞ = −5 .° 200 ± 0 .° 075 , and T ISN ∞ = 7496 ± 172 K. IBEX ISN viewing is restricted almost perpendicular to the Earth–Sun line, which limits observations in ecliptic longitude to ∼130° ± 30° and results in relatively small uncertainties across the IBEX parameter tube but large uncertainties along it. Operations over the last three years enabled the IBEX spin axis to drift to the maximum operational offset (7°) west of the Sun, helping to break the ISN parameter degeneracy by weakly crossing the IBEX parameter tubes: the range of possible inflow longitudes extends over the range λ ISN ∞ = 75 .° 28 − 2.21 + 2.27 and the corresponding range of other ISN parameters is V ISN ∞ = 25.99 − 1.76 + 1.86 km s−1, β ISN ∞ = −5 .° 200 − 0.085 + 0.093 , and T ISN ∞ = 7496 − 1528 + 1274 K. This enhances the full χ 2 analysis of ISN parameters through comparison with detailed models. The next-generation IBEX-Lo sensor on IMAP will be mounted on a pivot platform, enabling IMAP-Lo to follow the ISN flow over almost the entire spacecraft orbit around the Sun. A near-continuous set of 4D parameter tube orientations on IMAP will be observed for He and for O, Ne, and H that cross at varying angles to substantially reduce the ISN flow parameter uncertainties and mitigate systematic uncertainties (e.g., from ionization effects and the presence of secondary components) to derive the precise parameters of the primary and secondary local interstellar plasma flows.
