Model Predictive Control for AC Motors: Robustness and Accuracy Improvement Techniques (Paperback)
This book introduces how to improve the accuracy and robustness of model predictive control. Firstly, the disturbance observation- and compensation-based method is developed. Secondly, direct parameter identification methods are developed. Thirdly, the seldom-focused-on issues such as sampling and delay problems are solved in this book. Overall, this book solves the problems in a systematic and innovative way.
