Acceleration Measurement Drift Rejection in Motion Control Systems by Augmented-State Kinematic Kalman Filter

31 August, 2017

This paper deals with the use of MEMS accelerometers to improve the performances of positioning control systems equipped with low-resolution positioning sensors. A kinematic Kalman filter (KKF) is used to combine the position and acceleration measurements and get a smooth estimate of the kinematic variables, even in the presence of a coarse position quantization. Compared to similar schemes existing in literature, the state of the proposed KKF is augmented, to include the accelerometer output bias/drift among the variables estimated by the filter. In this way, the intrinsic robustness of the KKF scheme is further improved, by making the estimation process of the kinematic variables practically insensitive to the variation of the sensor bias/drift.

Inaugural 2018 IEEE 1st International Conference on Industrial Electronics for Sustainable Energy Systems (IESES)

31 August, 2017

Sustainable energy systems is a hot and dynamic topic in engineering. This inaugural 2018 IEEE 1st International Conference on Industrial Electronics for Sustainable Energy Systems (IESES) is expected to bring together worldwide researchers, industry experts, engineers and scientists and university academics and the energy companies for a four day event in the beautiful city of Hamilton, North Island of New Zealand. The 2018 IESES Conference is sponsored by the Industrial Electronics Society of IEEE and the University of Waikato. 2018 IESES will consist of keynote presentations, tutorials, workshops, and oral presentations on all aspects of state-of-the-art and innovative developments in the areas of industrial electronics applications and sustainable energy systems. Keynote presentations will be delivered by well-known international experts and corporate managers of selected Silicon Valley companies. It is an immense pleasure and honour to announce this inaugural IEEE international conference, during the warmth of the summer in central North Island of New Zealand where many tourist attractions are not too far from The University of Waikato (UOW). Location is close to the city of Rotorua (bubbling mud pools and geysers), Waitamo Glow Worm Caves, Hobbiton (Where Lord of the Rings was filmed), and the geothermal power plants (Taupo). We invite you to visit our Venue page where you can learn more about our exquisite host venue for the conference and the beautiful city in which it resides. We look forward to meet you in Hamilton, North Island, New Zealand during the conference from 30 January to 2 February 2018. General Co-Chairs - IESES 2018

An Alternative Distributed Control Architecture for Improvement in the Transient Response of DC Microgrids

30 April, 2017

Distributed secondary control plays an important role in dc microgrids, since it ensures system control objectives, which are power sharing and dc-bus voltage stability. Previous studies have suggested using a control architecture that utilizes a parallel secondary bus voltage and current sharing compensation. However, the parallel controllers have a mutual impact on each other, which degrades the transient performance of the system.
