Predictive control is an important advanced control technique for the control of power electronics converts and drives, which can be implemented with modern microprocessors at low cost, allowing them to solve the problems of difficult multivariable control. The use of predictive control offers a number of advantages: very intuitive approach, no need for linear controllers and modulators, simple inclusion of nonlinearities and restrictions, etc. MPC, an attractive alternative to linear control and modulation, is the current state-of-the-art research, as well as a popular subject for academic and industrial research. It has been recognized by the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics by several special sections dedicated to Predictive Control of Power Electronics and Drives. This symposium aims to provide an international forum for researchers, educators, engineers to disseminate their latest research results and exchange views on all issues that are relevant to the predictive control algorithms.
We are pleased to invite you to this year’s IEEE International Symposium on Predictive Control of Electrical Drives and Power Electronics (PRECEDE 2019), a forum for international experts to discuss questions and concepts concerning both related fields of research.
