Programma di Control Of Electrical Machines:


The course is a unified exposition of the most important steps and concerns in the mathematical modeling and in the design of estimation and control algorithms for electrical machines such as:

  permanent magnet synchronous motors

  permanent magnet stepper motors

  synchronous motors with damping windings

  induction (asynchronous) motors

  synchronous generators.

A single notation and modern (nonlinear) control terminology is used to make the course accessible to students who are not experts in electric machines at the same time as giving a more theoretical control view point to those who are.  The concepts of stability and nonlinear control theory are also recalled. Important features of the course include: mathematical modeling through nonlinear differential equations as well a wide-ranging discussion of (nonlinear) adaptive controls containing parameter estimation algorithms (important for applications). The content of the course is organized in a pedagogical, progressive exposition starting from basic assumptions, structural properties, modeling, control and estimation algorithms. Applications include: learning control of robotic manipulators and cruise/yaw rate control of electrical vehicles.
