Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS)


Prior to discussing the control of electrical drives, it is prudent to provide an introductory overview of the concept and the hardware used in this book. In addition the notational conventions, both electrical and mechanical are introduced together with the control blocks used to build drive controllers in successive chapters. Both, so called floating and fixed point control blocks are introduced together with continuous and discrete time modules given that an ‘embedded control’ approach is used throughout this book.
