Automatic voltage regulator performance enhancement using a fractional order model predictive controller

Imen Deghboudj, Samir Ladaci

Abstract


In this paper, a new design method for fractional order model predictive control (FO-MPC) is introduced. The proposed FO-MPC is synthesized for the class of linear time invariant system and applied for the control of an automatic voltage regulator (AVR). The main contribution is to use a fractional order system as prediction model, whereas the plant model is considered as an integer order one. The fractional order model is implemented using the singularity function approach. A comparative study is given with the classical MPC scheme. Numerical simulation results on the controlled AVR performances show the efficiency and the superiority of the fractional order MPC.
