Neural and Fuzzy Logic Control of Drives and Power Systems

Buy
The idea of writing this book arose from the need to investigate the main principles of modern power electronic control strategies, using fuzzy logic and neural networks, for research and teaching. Primarily, the book aims to be a quick learning guide for postgraduate/undergraduate students or design engineers interested in learning the fundamentals of modern control of drives and power systems in conjunction with the powerful design methodology based on VHDL.

At the same time, the book is structured to address the more complex needs of professional designers, using VHDL for neural and fuzzy logic systems design, by including comprehensive design examples. This facilitates the understanding of hardware description language applications and provides a practical approach to the development of advanced controllers for power electronics.

The first section of the book contains a brief review of control strategies for electric drives/power systems and a summary description of neural networks, fuzzy logic, electronic design automation (EDA) techniques, ASICs/FPGAs and VHDL. The aspects covered allow a basic understanding of the main principles of modern control. The second section contains two comprehensive case studies. The first deals with neural current and speed control of induction motor drives, whereas the second presents the environmentally friendly fuzzy logic control of a diesel-driven stand-alone synchronous generator set. Both control strategies were implemented in Xilinx FPGAs and comprehensively tested by simulation and experimental measurements.

This book brings together the complex features of control strategies, EDA, neural networks, fuzzy logic, electric machines and drives, power systems and VHDL and forms a basic guide for the understanding of the fundamental principles of modern power electronic control systems design. To be expert in the design of advanced digital controllers for drives and power systems, extra reading is strongly recommended and comprehensive material is referenced in the bibliographical section. The book includes a number of recent research results from work carried out by the authors, who are members of the electronic control and drives research group at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.

Pro jQuery

At its heart, jQuery does something that sounds pretty dull: it lets you modify the contents of HTML documents by manipulating the model that the browser creates when it processes the HTML (known as DOM manipulation, as I’ll explain later). If you are reading this, you have probably already done some DOM manipulation, either using...

Epistemology and Probability: Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr?dinger, and the Nature of Quantum-Theoretical Thinking
Epistemology and Probability: Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr?dinger, and the Nature of Quantum-Theoretical Thinking

The book offers an exploration of the relationships between epistemology and probability in the work of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrödinger; in quantum mechanics; and in modern physics as a whole. It also considers the implications of these relationships and of quantum theory itself for our understanding of the nature of...

The Book of Revelation (For Dummies)

Acommon cartoon theme involves a person wearing a sandwich sign or carrying a poster that proclaims, “Repent! The end is near!” What’s implied is that some sudden, violent event is just around the corner and that people need to brace themselves for whatever’s coming. And usually, the end that’s near involves...
