Realization of the Explicit Solution of Model-Based Predictive Control for Electric Drive Applications Using RT-Linux

Nael AL_Sheakh Ameen, University of Wuppertal, Germany

This paper deals with the experimental design and implementation of a rapid prototype system dictated for electric drive applications using RTOS.

The developed system with small size, low cost, and high efficiency, depends basically on the personal computer (PC) processor without the need to any external processor (e.g. digital signal processor (DSP)) to get the fast execution of control algorithms, and to support floating point operations.

The PC-based rapid-prototyping system consists of an extension kit with all required interface boards to do the simulation and implementation of electrical drive algorithms. Almost all designed boards are based on programmable-logic devices (PLD) to reduce cost and size.

To operate the hardware of the proposed system a free available open source real-time operating system (RTOS) kernel under Linux is used.

As case study from electric drive applications a Direct Model-based Predictive Current Control MBPC is selected as one of most complicated closed-loop control algorithm in this field, and some of experimental results are given in order to demonstrate the good functionality of the conceived system.
