IET Electric Power Applications

Special Issue Call for Papers
Advances in Predictive Control
of Variable-Speed Electric Drives

Dear Colleague,

IET Electric Power Applications is inviting submissions for a Special Issue on predictive control.

The aim of this Special Issue is to explore the uses of predictive controllers which offer a number of interesting advantages, such as intuitiveness, no need for linear controllers and modulators, and ease of inclusion of nonlinearities and restrictions.

Our international team of guest editors for this Special Issue:

Prof. Federico Barrero, Departamento de Ingeniería Electrónica, Universidad de Sevilla, Seville, Spain
Prof. José Rodríguez, Universidad Andrés Bello, Santiago, Chile
Prof. Manuel R. Arahal, Departamento de Ingeniería de Sistemas y Automática, Universidad de Sevilla, Seville, Spain
Prof. Marco Rivera, Departamento de Tecnologías Industriales, Universidad de Talca, Curicó, Chile

Our guest editors are looking for original research and review articles in areas including (but not limited to):

Predictive control applied to power electronic converters for variable-speed electric drive supply control
Algorithms for predictive control in variable-speed linear and rotating electric drives during healthy operating conditions
