Abstract

Model predictive control ( MPC ) has emerged as one of the most attractive modern control techniques in power electronics. In this technique, to control more than one variable with one cost function, the use of weighting factors has been introduced as very creative and effective solution. However, the process for the calculation of weighting factors is considered as a weak point of this strategy. This paper introduces a new method to use MPC without the need of calculation of any weighting factor, introducing a dramatic simplification in the technique. The method is based on Model Predictive Control, using one cost function for the torque and another separate cost function for the flux. Simulation results obtained in an induction machine confirm the very good performance of the drive.
