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.

Lectures on Quantum Mechanics
This book is the “verbatim” transcription of the introductory lectures on quantum mechanics that I delivered for more than 25 years at the ´Ecole Polytechnique. It is not a textbook. I was dragged into writing it by friends, among whom are many former students of mine. For sure, this text is obviously less complete than a...
Vector Analysis for Computer Graphics
Vector Analysis for Computer Graphics
Vector analysis is relatively young in the history of mathematics, however, in the short period of its existence it has become a powerful and central tool in describing and solving a wide range of geometric problems, many, of which, arise in computer graphics. These may be in the form of describing lines, surfaces and volumes, which may touch,...
