    With the ever-increasing importance of electricity, excellent service reliability is no longer a luxury in the eyes of consumers but an expectation. In response to this expectation, Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) is making a significant investment in a new technology to help improve reliability. This technology uses an automated feeder reconfiguration scheme that not only mini... View full abstract»

    In motion control of electric vehicles (EVs), the undetectable road conditions and varying vehicle parameters challenge the steering ability and validity. This article investigates a new traction control (TC) approach that uses the maximum transmissible torque estimation (MTTE) scheme to carry out the antislip control of EVs. A closed-loop disturbance observer is employed to enhance the steering s... View full abstract»

    Chock temperature control is an important issue in cold rolling mills. Traditional wired systems don't offer satisfactory results for practical use. Because of very low power consumption using Zigbee (IEEE 802.15.4) wireless technology, temperature sensors (up to 125 οC ) suitable for a tandem cold mill environment have been developed. The complete monitoring system includes repe... View full abstract»

    This article presented an application of the repetitive control to DC motor drive speed regulation of flatbed scanners. Cost-reduction actions during the product development phase determined the use of a cheaper DC motor assembly for the scanner drive, which showed a high level of cogging torque. A discrete-time repetitive controller was designed based on the plug-in concept to attenuate the perio... View full abstract»

  • Model Predictive Direct Current Control: Formulation of the Stator Current Bounds and the Concept of the Switching Horizon

    In this article, a model predictive current controller for multilevel inverters driving electrical machines is proposed. The inverter switch positions are directly set by the controller, thus avoiding the use of a modulator. Admissible switching sequences are enumerated, and a state-space model of the drive is used to predict the drive's response to each sequence. The predicted short-term switchin... View full abstract»

  • Electric Heat Tracing Controls: Its Integration in Industrial Facilities

    Electric heat tracing systems have been around for decades. They are often taken for granted until a failure disrupts a process and, in the worst-case scenario, causes a costly unit-wide shutdown of an industrial facility. This is especially the case in the petroleum and chemical industries, where critical processes have evolved, requiring tighter control and monitoring along with predictive diagn...
