    Article
    Open Access
    A new controller for a grid connected inverter with an LCL filter is proposed in this paper. The system is described by its complex representation and the controller is designed using the complex root locus method. The ...

    In this paper an algorithm for solving the Optimal Power Flow problem for multi-terminal DC networks based on the gradient method is proposed. The aim is seeking the optimal point subject to voltage, current and power ...
  • Stabilisation of state-and-input constrained nonlinear systems via diffeomorphisms: A Sontag's formula approach with an actual application 

    Acosta Rodríguez, José Ángel; Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Fossas Colet, Enric (2018-09-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, we provide a new and constructive outlook for the control of state-and-input constrained nonlinear systems. Previously, explicit solutions have been mainly focused on the finding of a barrier-like Lyapunov ...
  • Active damping: an Hinf model reference approach 

    Pérez, Jorge; Cóbreces Álvarez, Santiago; Griñó Cubero, Robert; Huerta, Francisco; Rodríguez, Francisco Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper focuses on the design of an active-damping controller that shapes the dynamics of an LCL grid connected voltage source converter (VSC) to mimic an L-filter connected VSC. This makes possible to use simpler ...
  • Reducing the cogging torque effects in hybrid stepper machines by means of resonant controllers 

    Arias Pujol, Antoni; Caum Aregay, Jesús; Ibarra Basabe, Edorta; Griñó Cubero, Robert (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-06-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Permanent magnet machines are not free from the interaction between magnets and the stator and rotor slots, which causes an undesired disturbing torque. Such cogging or detent torque is especially larger with salient pole ...
