J. Dyn. Sys., Meas., Control 136(3), 031021 (Feb 28, 2014) (7 pages) Paper No: DS-12-1408; doi: 10.1115/1.4026128 History: Received December 05, 2012; Revised November 12, 2013

This paper proposes a robust control based on generalized predictive control (GPC) applied to the current control loop for a switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive. The proposed controller has two degrees of freedom where the setpoint tracking is decoupled from the load disturbance rejection at the nominal case. In addition a filter design is proposed in order to achieve good relationship among robustness, load disturbance rejection, and noise attenuation. Simulation and real experimental results are shown to illustrate the controller performance.
