© 1986-2012 IEEE. This paper presents a model-predictive sliding-mode control (MPSMC) scheme for a three-phase ac/dc converter to achieve better stability and dynamic performances. In the conventional model-predictive control method, a proportional-integral (PI) controller is used to generate the active power reference. This traditional model-predictive PI control (MPPIC) scheme, however, produces a large overshoot/undershoot, a long settling time, and a large steady-state error under disturbances. To overcome these deficiencies, a sliding-mode controller is employed to replace the PI controller. Since the control law and the controller are designed based on the system model, the proposed MPSMC scheme can reduce the effects of unexpected disturbances, such as the output voltage demand and the resistance load variations. Both methods have been simulated in MATLAB/Simulink during various disturbances. Compared with the performances of MPPIC, the results obtained from MPSMC show that the settling time of the dc voltage can be minimized by about 91%, and the overshoot can be eliminated from 9.13% during the steady-state progress. The active and reactive power from MPSMC can also be controlled to the desired values, respectively, with a much smaller overshoot/undershoot and a faster response speed. Similar dynamic improvements can be achieved with MPSMC when the dc voltage demand varies. The simulation results are validated by experimental results.
