What is it about?

A PV emulator not only compute the converter's controller in real-time, but also the PV model. This will definitely burden digital controller. This paper proposed a new controller that requires low computation like a PI controller, yet robust like a fuzzy logic controller.

Why is it important?

Help reduce the cost of the PV emulator since there no need to use powerful digital controller. Lowering the computation time. This allows a faster performance of PV emulator. This controller is not only for the PV emulator, but also for the conventional converter, especially with wide load range and operating points.


I hope this controller can help researchers and industry in designing their power converter.
