advanced control of electrical drives and power electronic converters pdf

The idea of this book originated among the research community gathered around
the conference Control in Power Electronics and Electric Drives. It is a leading
Polish Conference devoted to power electronics, motion control, electric drives
automation, and control theory application. It is a regular biennial event with a very
long tradition—the 13th edition will be organized in November 2017. The conference is organized by the Institute of Automatic Control, Lodz University of Technology, always in Lodz, under auspices of the Committee on Electrical Engineering, Polish Academy of Sciences, and in cooperation with IEEE (Polish section). The event is the main meeting forum for researchers, developers, and
specialists from the industry. I cordially invite the readers of the presented book to
participate in future editions of our conference.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to numerous persons, who contributed to the edition of this book:
• the authors, who worked hard to make their chapters perfect and in time;
apologies if I made you be under a pressure from time to time;
• numerous anonymous researchers, who helped to review the chapters, to
eliminate mistakes, and to improve the final result;
• Prof. Janusz Kacprzyk, the Editor of Springer Book Series, for his enthusiasm,
encouragement, and support to publish this book;
• the editorial team of Springer Applied Sciences and Engineering, for professional support during implementation of this project; and
• last but not least, Prof. Marian P. Kaźmierkowski, one of the greatest scientists
specializing in power electronics and electrical drives, who was the first person
to mention the idea of writing this book and supported the editorial process.
