FPGA Technology and Software IP in Power Electronics Applications

FPGA-based Controllers – IEEE Industrial Electronics Mazagine March 2011

Another great ‘survey’ article has been written by Dr. Éric Monmasson and his team and published in the IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine of March 2011 and titled ‘FPGA-based Controllers – Different Perspectives of Power Electronics and Drives Applications’. Here’s the abstract of their article:

This article presents the benefits of using field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based controllers for power electronics and drive applications. For this purpose, an algorithm perspective is first proposed, where it is stated that, depending on the intrinsic parallelism properties as well as level of complexity, it makes sense to implement each control algorithm on a specific hardware and/or software architecture to get the best performances in terms of execution time or the best ratio performance versus cost. Then, an application perspective is proposed where the constraints specifically linked to the control of power converters are discussed.
