Predictive Control


Cascaded control design is often convenient and desirable in power electronics. Each control loop can be designed to respect the constraints of the plant. With predictive control, the innermost loop does not suffer from the delay of the converter and the phase lag of the sensors, such that the cascaded control can achieve high dynamics similar to state control. In addition, our predictor is designed to increase robustness with respect to deviating plant parameters significantly, which makes the controlled converter applicable to a wide load range.
