Electric Machine Control Technics

Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


In this chapter, a review of the control theory focused on the control of electrical machines is shown. The most control structures for electrical machine control are described, as well as the regulation based on classic controllers such as the proportional–integral–differential (PID). The structures of the PID controller are also described in order to know how to choose the most suitable for the design. The digital control is introduced in detail as digitalization methods for integrators and derivators, PIDs, aliasing, zero-order hold, quantifiers, and time delays. The digital PID is implemented based on models of Simulink®, m-function, and Stateflow®, which will serve as an introduction to the subsequent chapters. As an alternative to classical PID controllers, non-linear control based on fuzzy logic is introduced, ending the chapter with a comparison between classical PI control, adaptive PI control, and PI control plus fuzzy control.
