Performance of an Ocean Energy Conversion System with DFIG Sensorless Control
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-05)
The 2009/28/EC Directive requires Member States of the European Union to adopt a National Action Plan for Renewable Energy. In this context, the Basque Energy Board, EVE, is committed to research activities such as the ...
Emergent synchronisation properties of a refrigerator demand side management system
In order to analyse the possibilities of improving grid stability on island systems by local demand response mechanisms,a multi-agent simulation model is presented. To support the primary reserve, an under-frequency load ...
Multi-agent modelling for the simulation of a simple smart microgrid
The smart grid is a highly complex system that is being formed from the traditional power grid, adding new and sophisticated communication and control devices. This will enable integrating new elements for distributed power ...
Effective and Robust Generalized Predictive Speed Control of Induction Motor
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-10-16)
This paper presents and validates a new proposal for effective speed vector control of induction motors based on linear Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) law. The presented GPC-PI cascade configuration simplifies the ...
Sliding mode position control for real-time control of induction motors
(ICIC International, 2013-07)
A sliding mode position control for high-performance real-time applications of induction motors in developed in this work. The design also incorporates a simple flux estimator in order to avoid the flux sensors. Then, the ...
Towards complex system design and management in the engineering domain – the smart grid challenge
(Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2013-06-30)
Our world is facing a significant challenge from climate change and global warming, coupled with an increased awareness about the importance of preserving the environment. This challenge calls for us to use our resources ...
