Enhanced power sharing transient with droop controllers for multi-three-phase synchronous electrical machines (2018)
Journal Article
Galassini, A., Costabeber, A., Degano, M., Gerada, C., Tessarolo, A., & Menis, R. (2018). Enhanced power sharing transient with droop controllers for multi-three-phase synchronous electrical machines. IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, doi:10.1109/tie.2018.2868029

This paper presents a droop-based dis- tributed control strategy for multi-three-phase machines that provides augmented controllability during power shar- ing transients. The proposed strategy is able to mitigate the mutual interactions among differe... Read More

Design of PMSM for EMA employed in secondary flight control systems (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Giangrande, P., Al-Timimy, A., Galassini, A., Papadopoulos, S., Degano, M., & Galea, M. (in press). Design of PMSM for EMA employed in secondary flight control systems. In NA

The more electric aircraft (MEA) initiative aims to improve weight, fuel consumption and maintenance costs of the aircraft, by increasing the use of electric power in actuation systems. Considering this scenario, electromechanical actuators (EMAs) fo... Read More

Distributed speed control for multi-three phase electrical motors with improved power sharing capability (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Galassini, A., Costabeber, A., Gerada, C., & Tessarolo, A. (2017). Distributed speed control for multi-three phase electrical motors with improved power sharing capability

This paper proposes a distributed speed control with improved power sharing capability for multi-three phase synchronous machines. This control technique allows the speed to be precisely regulated during power sharing transients among different drive... Read More

Speed control for multi-three phase synchronous electrical motors in fault condition (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Galassini, A., Costabeber, A., & Gerada, C. (2017). Speed control for multi-three phase synchronous electrical motors in fault condition

The growth of electrification transportation systems is an opportunity for delving into new feasible solutions for more reliable and fault tolerant arrangements. So far, many investigations distant from the market have been carried out. Most of the w... Read More

uCube: control platform for power electronics (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Galassini, A., Lo Calzo, G., Formentini, A., Gerada, C., Zanchetta, P., & Costabeber, A. (2017). uCube: control platform for power electronics. doi:10.1109/WEMDCD.2017.7947749

This paper presents a versatile tool for development, control and testing of power electronics converters. In the last decade, many different expensive off-the-shelf tools for rapid prototyping and testing have been developed and commercialised by fe... Read More

A modular speed-drooped system for high reliability integrated modular motor drives (2016)
Journal Article
Galassini, A., Costabeber, A., Gerada, C., Buticchi, G., & Barater, D. (2016). A modular speed-drooped system for high reliability integrated modular motor drives. IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 52(4), doi:10.1109/TIA.2016.2540608. ISSN 0093-9994

Future transportation challenges include a considerable reduction in pollutant emissions at a time when significant increase in demand is predicted. One of the enabling solutions is the electrification of transport systems as this should lead to impr... Read More
