Hybrid control of power converters

Hybrid control of power converters

Here, the considered paradigm is the one developed in chapter 2 which associates to a continuous-time flow whose model is of a differential equation type, a discrete- time behavior capturing the switched characteristic imposed by the control law. Two subsets included in an extended space, built from the state and the control spaces, determine the regions where the continuous and discrete dynamics are active. The main tool for proving stability of a compact attractor defined in this extended space, proceeds by an appropriate extension of Lyapunov stability theory developed in the context of hybrid dynamic systems in [26] and [34]. Due to the affine structure of the modes, a quadratic Lyapunov function can be selected from a positive definite symmetric matrix satisfying a set of Lyapunov inequalities. A hybrid control law with its two associated flow and jump is deduced from this matrix and an upper bound of a LQ performance index for the controlled system can be computed. It is possible to deduce an optimal guaranteed cost control law leading to the tight upper bound, by solving a LMI optimization problem.

Hybrid Control of a Bioreactor with Quantized Measurements

Hybrid Control of a Bioreactor with Quantized Measurements

Hybrid Control of a Bioreactor with Quantized Measurements Francis Mairet and Jean-Luc Gouz´e Abstract—We consider the problem of global stabilization of an unstable bioreactor model (e.g. for anaerobic digestion), when the measurements are discrete and in finite number (“quantized”), with control of the dilution rate. The measurements define regions in the state space, and they can be perfect or uncertain (i.e. without or with overlaps). We show that, under appropriate assumptions, a quantized control may lead to global stabilization: trajectories have to follow some transitions between the regions, until the final region where they converge toward the reference equilibrium. On the boundary between regions, the solutions are defined as a Filippov differential inclusion. If the assumptions are not fulfilled, sliding modes may appear, and the transition graphs are not deterministic.

Monotone numerical schemes and feedback construction for hybrid control systems

Monotone numerical schemes and feedback construction for hybrid control systems

of Dynamic Programming techniques. As a general analytical background, the reader is referred to [4, 5, 6] for a study of the characterization and properties of the value function. The contribution of the present paper is on the numerical side. Our first point of interest is to approximate the value function of the problem – in this part, construction of a convergent approximation will result from an adaptation of monotone schemes to the hybrid case, which involves a dynamic programming equation in the form of a quasi-variational inequality. Moreover, in order to give a more constructive result, we also study the synthesis of an approximate optimal feedback control. We will define a procedure to compute a piecewise constant control given the state and the numerical value function, and prove that (under suitable assumptions) this construction provides an asymptotically optimal solution. Note that, in general, the value function of most relevant hybrid control problems is not expected to be continuous unless a certain number of technical assumptions are satisfied. In what follows, we will keep ourselves within this more restrictive framework, but, as numerical examples will show, the approximation strategies under consideration are robust enough to provide good results even in more general situations.

A Hybrid Control Strategy for Quadratic Boost Converters with Inductor Currents Estimation

A Hybrid Control Strategy for Quadratic Boost Converters with Inductor Currents Estimation

nected in cascade, which requires two switching, increasing the commutation losses. In the QBC, one can obtain the same gain using only one conversion stage increasing the efficiency. The novelty of this paper is to integrate a state observer in a hybrid control scheme of the converter to avoid using cur- rent sensors. To the best of Authors’ knowledge, an observer has not been designed before for a switched a ffine system con- trolled with a Lyapunov matrix-based min-projection control, in a hybrid dynamical model. This fact is particularly important because it allows to remove current sensors. From a practical point of view, the lack of current sensors can improve the pro- duction cost of converters. Indeed, if currents are not measured, it is not needed to employ neither current sensors, nor Analog to Digital Converters (ADC) any more; and the dimensions of the board could be better optimized. Moreover, the fact of using a QBC, which is four dimensions, justifies the use of an observer to reduce the number of sensors. The stability of the complete system is established in terms of Uniform Global Asymptotic Stability (UGAS) of a bounded and closed set that includes the operating point, providing UGAS of both tracking error of the equilibrium point and estimation error. It is useful to point out that the property of UGAS of such set implies the robustness of the complete control loop with respect to small perturbations around the operating point.

have their performance rapidly decreasing with time compared to pure centralized ones (or predictive ones) if no perturbation occurs (that is, all data are known and certain from the beginning). Due to the limitations of these two historical approaches facing the current industrial needs, researchers are more and more considering a third kind of approach by trying to propose integrated scheduling and control architectures that integrate local distributed-reactive mechanisms implemented into products/resources control holons/agents with global centralized scheduling mechanisms, being robust or not. Such architectures named hybrid scheduling and control architectures (in short, HCA for Hybrid Control Architectures in the remaining of this document) are intended to capitalize the

Predictive Hybrid Control on 3-Phase 4-Wire Power Converters

Predictive Hybrid Control on 3-Phase 4-Wire Power Converters

control method demands a fine modeling of the system and the control criterion to satisfy during one sampled period. The power electronics circuits generally consist of linear components such as resistors, inductors and capacitors, and nonlinear ones, i.e. the static switches themselves. This kind of system is called to have the continuous and discrete properties or in other term: a hybrid system. From the point of view of the hybrid system theory, it is possible to separate such system into several continuous states and have the response as the sum or the combination of them. This leads to the freely selected combination to reach one desired output. In this work, the hybrid control method will be blended with the predictive control to generate one control criterion to satisfy during each sampled period.

Robust hybrid control law for a boost inverter

Robust hybrid control law for a boost inverter

4. An hybrid control Scheme The inverter model presented in (2) covers two different types of dynamics. 135 In one hand, the continuous-time variables which are the differences and the sums of the inductor currents and the capacitor voltages. In other hand, the control input, v, is a discrete-time variable. Consequently, the framework given in [12] about hybrid dynamical system is well suited.

Hybrid control of a three-agent network cluster

Hybrid control of a three-agent network cluster

Hybrid control of a three-agent network cluster Carolina Albea, Alexandre Seuret and Luca Zaccarian Abstract — We consider the management problem for a cluster of three identical servers treating an external request. We assume that each agent has a constant computational speed and we build a deter- ministic hybrid dynamical model of the overall sys- tem. Then, inspired by consensus theory, we propose a centralized control law distributing the computa- tional load among the agents and deciding when to turn on or off each agent, for energy efficiency, while ensuring that the queues of each agent asymptotically converge to a desirable level. We prove the properties of the proposed law and highlight some interesting peculiarities in terms of non-uniform convergence.

Toward an hybrid control architecture for a mobile multi-robot systems

Toward an hybrid control architecture for a mobile multi-robot systems

35 35.2 35.4 35.6 35.8 36 36.2 36.4 36.6 36.8 5 Conclusion and future works We applied hybrid control architecture on a mobile robot to obtain a stable trajectory tracking while avoiding obstacles. Indeed, the robot is controlled by elementary continuous controllers according to the sub-tasks to accomplish (trajectory tracking, obstacle avoidance) and switching from a controller to an other is done referring to discrete events. We saw that hard switches cause chattering and are not efficient to insure a safe navigation. Therefore, we propose to use the multiple Lyapunov function for hybrid systems to design a stable hybrid control architecture. In addition to elementary stable controllers for the two main sub-tasks, we introduce a third controller which insures the second sufficient condition of multiple Lyapunov function (cf. section 2). Simulations show that our architecture prevents useless switches, guaranteeing thus a safe navigation for the robot. Applying this stable control architecture to a dynamic environment (e.g., moving obstacles), will be the subject of future works. Application to multi-robot systems navigating in formation seems also to be interesting. The objective is to make each robot able to avoid an obstacle before regaining the convoy.

Hybrid system control using an on-line discrete event supervisory strategy

Hybrid system control using an on-line discrete event supervisory strategy

and veri…es the resulting controller design. The approach is to harness the power of industrially proven system modeling (simulation tools). The nonlinear continuous models are wrapped in a discrete abstraction layer that is based on event detection. The discrete abstraction combined with a DES speci…cation in a limited horizon reachabil- ity computation, produces a discrete event (DE) controller that is, within this limited space and time, locally safe. Furthermore, a reduction in computational complexity is achieved by exploit- ing a lazy (just-in-time) synchronous composition of the speci…cation and plant models at design time. This scheme is implemented as an online computation, in order for the controller operation to be extended into an in…nite time horizon. Limited lookahead (LL) supervisory control has been extensively studied in a DES setting by (Chung et al. 1992). In (Raisch and O’Young 1998), discrete abstractions based on the trun- cated time history of discrete-time LTI continu- ous models were used to synthesize DES super- visory controllers. Others, (Su et al. 2003) and (Abdelwahed et al. 2005), have also used discrete abstractions of switched continuous systems in a LL framework to e¤ect control over hybrid sys- tems. Similar to our work is (Stursberg 2004), in which the nonlinear continuous dynamics are retained as embedded simulations, and a graph search algorithm has been described for optimal hybrid control. Our approach di¤ers in that we do not limit switching to discrete time intervals and controller graph pruning is done in a maximally permissive sense with respect to safety as is com- monly done in optimal DES supervisory control (Ramadge and Wonham 1987).

Hybrid Behavioral Control Architecture for the Cooperation of Minimalist Mobile Robots

Hybrid Behavioral Control Architecture for the Cooperation of Minimalist Mobile Robots

24 Rue Alain Savary, 25000 BESANCON, France {Lounis.Adouane & Nadine.Piat}@ens2m.fr Abstract - This paper presents a hybrid control architecture based on subsumption and schemas motors principles in order to achieve complex and cooperative tasks. The control architecture implemented is constituted by a set of independent and elementary behaviors organized in layers of skills. Specific low-level behaviors, called altruistic behaviors and inspired by societies of insects (attractive or repulsive signals), are used to improve the efficiency of the control. Therefore, competitive and cooperative mechanisms are used in an unique hybrid architecture of control to perform a complex box-pushing task by a set of mini-robots. The analysis of an elevated number of simulations allows us to have statistical results (time to complete the task was chosen as performance criteria) which show the existence of an optimal number of robots to achieve the box-pushing task and underline the importance of the use of altruistic behaviors to enhance the cooperative task. Index Terms - Cooperative robotics, Behavioral architecture of control, Altruistic behavior, Box-pushing task.

Modeling of hybrid vibration control for multilayer structures using solid– shell finite elements

Modeling of hybrid vibration control for multilayer structures using solid– shell finite elements

Alternatively, core material systems can be found in entangled fibers [ 14 , 15 ], or as viscoelastic inclusions embedded in elastic layers [ 16 ]. Unfortunately, this technique does not always allow effective passive damping. To improve the damping properties, it is sometimes necessary to increase the thickness of the viscoelastic layer. However, limitations are quickly encountered in terms of dimensions and mechanical properties of composites, which become less resistant as the thickness of the viscoelastic layers becomes larger. Other limitations are sometimes associated with the total thickness of the structure, which is related to its practical implementation. To overcome these restrictions while increasing the damping properties of multilayer structures, the use of piezoelectric materials is desirable and sometimes even unavoidable. Indeed, the attractive properties of piezoelectric materials, and especially their ability to deform under electrical load and vice versa, make them indispensable. More specifically, the current generated by deformation is collected and amplified or attenuated in order to control the vibration amplitudes. Some literature studies effectively combined passive damping and active control using viscoelastic core sandwiches constrained by layers of piezoelectric materials [ 17 , 18 ]. Controlling this phenomenon is therefore important to better implement these hybrid control systems. In the literature, a number of works have been devoted to this issue, among which the contributions reported in references [ 19 , 20 ]. In particular, it is clearly shown in these works that the finite element discretization leads to frequency-dependent nonlinear problems. The complexity of such problems restricted the earlier investigations to PD (Proportional Derivative) type of control laws (see Duigou- Kersulec [ 19 ] and Boudaoud [ 20 ], among others).

Hybrid and Safe Control Architecture for Mobile Robot Navigation

Hybrid and Safe Control Architecture for Mobile Robot Navigation

Abstract— This paper deals with a multi-mode control ar- chitecture for robot navigation while using hybrid control. It presents, an adaptive and flexible mechanism of control which guarantees the stability and the smoothness of the switch between controllers. Moreover, a specific safety mode is proposed and applied on the robot which navigates very close to obstacles. The overall architecture allows to obtain very smooth trajec- tories while guaranteeing very safe obstacle avoidance. Many simulations on different robot configurations and cluttered envi- ronments permits to confirm the reliability and the robustness of the proposed control architecture. In addition, an appropriate indicator is proposed to quantify the trajectory smoothness.

A semi-Lagrangian algorithm in policy space for hybrid optimal control problems

A semi-Lagrangian algorithm in policy space for hybrid optimal control problems

In the last two decades, the concept of hybrid control system has provided a sound math- ematical framework for treating control systems in which continuous and discrete control actions mix together, and this framework has also been successfully adapted to optimal control problems. Among the various systems covered by this theory, we mention economic models with restocking, multigear and hybrid vehicles, and, more in general, systems with switchings in the dynamics and/or impulsive changes in the state. In this paper, we study efficient numerical methods for applying Dynamic Programming techniques to hybrid op- timal control problems of infinite horizon type.

2016 — Design and control of standalone and hybrid standalone power generation systems

2016 — Design and control of standalone and hybrid standalone power generation systems

For HSPGS, which are based on solar PV array and DG, two different topologies are selected for study. The first one uses DE driven fixed speed SG. Dump load and BESS are tied to the DC bus instead of AC side. To get MPPT from solar PV array P&O technique is used. AC voltage and the system frequency regulation, as well as, the power quality improvement at the PCC, are achieved by using the modified instantaneous p-q theory control algorithm. To protect the BESS from the overcharging, dump load is controlled. To optimise fuel consumption by DG and to improve its efficiency, a new controlled switch is added between the PCC and the terminals of DG in order to isolate it from the rest of installation to behave as backup energy source during the day time. The second selected HSPGS uses DE driven variable speed DFIG, the solar PV array is tied to the PCC through two-stage inverters and the rotor of the DFIG is connected to DC bus using AC/DC converter. To achieve MPPT from the solar PV array P&O technique and to regulate the AC voltage and the system frequency, as well as, to improve the power quality at the PCC, indirect control technique is used. To regulate the rotational speed of the DG according to the load power demand, AC/DC converter is controlled using stator flux oriented control technique when the reference DG rotational speed is estimated using reel characteristic of optimal rotational speed of DG versus load curve.

Hybrid Force/Position control applied to automated guiding tasks at the Microscale.

V. C ONCLUSION A study of force feedback based guiding task is proposed in this paper. The lateral contact force is estimated by using two sensorized fingers and is used in an external hybrid force/position control. A simulator development based on Matlab-Simulink model is investigated and the use of this simulator enables to set parameters of the controller. It prevents for breaking a part of the system if the control is unstable. The effectiveness of the incremental controller is validated and it was shown that the time for canceling a step perturbation can reach the corrector stage dynamic ( ≈ 35 ms). This controller depends on sampling frequency and step increment: the magnitude of this step has to be smaller than the play for ensuring the stability. An experimental setup is developed to perform the guiding task. A micropart of 2 mm x 50 µm x 50 µm in size is grasped, the incremental controller is validated by rejecting perturbations at each side of the rail. A ramp tracking with 2 µm/s slope which

Conclusions By coupling a LEFM model with a damage model a hybrid virtual test was developed. Considering the complexity of a real hybrid test, the use of such numerical simulations is very important to prepare, to anticipate difficulties that may arise during the real test. In perspective, in order to have a more accurate and a more reactive response, the numerical hybrid test will be improved and optimized.
