Intelligent Control of Medium and High Power Converters
The growing share of renewable energies, as well as the rising demand for electricity for transport and heating, are increasing the importance of power converters and the requirements for reliability and control. Intelligent control can increase converter efficiency, reducing size and weight. The application of intelligent control techniques to power converters has therefore recently become a focus of research.
Intelligent Control of Medium and High Power Converters summarizes the state of the art in the control of electric power converters. After an overview of the topic, the chapters cover optimization, bi-directional DC-DC converters, high-gain converters, GaN-based synchronous converters, control design, sliding mode control of three-phase inverters and three-level grid-connected inverters, neurological control, low-frequency switching operation, and a comparison and overview chapter. Comparing control methods for different converters helps users find the best solution for each type of converter and application.
The book is a valuable resource for researchers and manufacturers involved with converters and power grids, as well as for advanced students.
