Abstract

This paper presents a systematic methodology to design controllers for a general class of nonlinear MIMO systems affine in the control in the presence of bounded uncertainties and disturbances. The design method is developed using a theoretical framework based on the combination of a geometric approach and sliding mode techniques. The resulting robust control law guarantees finite time convergence, whereas chattering reduciton is achieved by utilizing the minimum discontinuous action required to ensure disturbance rejection. The proposed methodology is applied to the control of a grid-connected wind energy generation system based on a doubly fed induction generator. The control objectives considered in this paper are maximization of the wind energy conversion and reactive power regulation to minimize machine losses.
