    In this article, an overview of capacitive and eddy current sensors (ECSs) for measuring very small displacements in the subnanometer range is presented in view of the latest advancements in the field. The need for an accurate displacement/position measurement in such extremely small scales as nanometers and picometers has increased significantly during the last few years. Application examples can be found in high-tech industry, metrology, and space equipment manufacturing. A better understanding of the commonalities between these two types of sensors, as well as the main performance differences and limitations, will help to make the best choice for a specific application. The comparative survey in this article is based on both theoretical analysis and experimental results. The main performance criteria used are sensitivity, resolution, compactness, long-term stability, thermal drift, and power efficiency. View full abstract»

    Model-based predictive control (MPC) for power converters and drives is a control technique that has gained attention in the research community. The main reason for this is that although MPC presents high computational burden, it can easily handle multivariable case and system constraints and nonlinearities in a very intuitive way. Taking advantage of that, MPC has been successfully used for different applications such as an active front end (AFE), power converters connected to resistor inductor RL loads, uninterruptible power supplies, and high-performance drives for induction machines, among others. This article provides a review of the application of MPC in the power electronics area. View full abstract»

  • Direct Model Predictive Control: A Review of Strategies That Achieve Long Prediction Intervals for Power Electronics

    Direct model predictive control (MPC) strategies that achieve long prediction horizons with a modest computational complexity are reviewed in this article, focusing on power electronics applications. In many MPC problems, a long prediction horizon is required to ensure an adequate closed-loop performance in steady state and to avoid stability issues. However, the computational effort of solving the optimization problem underlying MPC problems with long prediction horizons is often very great, making the implementation of such schemes in real time a difficult and challenging task. To overcome this difficulty, three established methodologies are surveyed that yield long prediction horizons with a modest computational burden. Case studies are investigated to substantiate the merits of these schemes. More specifically, for dc?dc boost converters, a move blocking strategy is reviewed, and for ac medium-voltage (MV) drives, both an extrapolation and an event-based horizon strategy are examined.

    Model predictive control (MPC) methods for applications in power converters have received considerable attention in recent years. The idea behind MPC is to use a mathematical model of the system to predict its future behavior within a predefined time. An optimization problem that includes the control objectives, the predicted variables, and possible constraints of the system is solved, yielding the control actions to be applied.
