  • Comparison of first- and second-order sliding-mode controllers for a dc-dc dual active bridge 

    Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Serra, Federico; Esteban, Francisco Daniel; Biel Solé, Domingo; Griñó Cubero, Robert (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022-04-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper compares four sliding-mode control strategies for a dual active bridge. The proposed control algorithms define different switching functions resulting in first-and second-order controllers, and using both ...
  • Sliding modes in a class of complex-valued nonlinear systems 

    Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Olm Miras, Josep Maria; Biel Solé, Domingo; Fossas Colet, Enric (2021-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    A number of physical systems allow a complex-valued representation. This article extends the theory of sliding modes to a class of nonlinear systems described by complex-valued variables. Hence, states, parameters, control ...
  • A Multiple-Reference Complex-Based Controller for Power Converters 

    Serra, Federico; Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Bodson, Marc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A multiple-reference complex-based controller is proposed for three-phase power converters feeding nonlinear and unbalanced loads. The control scheme incorporates a stable multiple-complex coefficient filter with bandwidths ...

  • Ageing of an oscillator due to frequency switching 

    Bonet Revés, Carles; Jeffrey, Mike R.; Martín de la Torre, Pablo; Olm Miras, Josep Maria (2021-11-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    If an oscillator is driven by a force that switches between two frequencies, the dynamics it exhibits depends on the precise manner of switching. Here we take a one-dimensional oscillator and consider scenarios in which ...
  • Enhanced DC-link voltage utilization for sliding mode controlled PMSM drives 

    Repecho del Corral, Víctor; Sierra González, Andrés; Ibarra Basabe, Edorta; Biel Solé, Domingo; Arias Pujol, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sliding mode control (SMC) can be considered for torque regulation of permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSMs) when fast transient response and/or robustness under parameter uncertainties are required. In some particular ...
