Sliding Mode Control of Electrical Motors
Mauricio Torres

A new approach for the control of switched reluctance machines is presented. In this approach the control objectives are specified as surfaces in the state space where we desire the system to "slide". These surfaces are chosen to obtain a desired performance and/or to follow physical constraints as balanced currents in no neutral connected systems. As the objectives are specified as surfaces sliding mode control is a well adapted technique for dealing with the problem. An introduction on sliding mode is presented and the technique is illustrated in three electrical machines: the DC motor, the synchronous PM motor and the switched reluctance motor. Also some simulations are going to be presented.
