In modern dc shipboard microgrid (SMG) systems, the propulsion motors and hotel loads are always supplied through tightly regulated point of load converters, which behave as constant power loads (CPLs). The negative incremental impedance due to CPL’s characteristics destabilizes the dc bus voltage of dc SMGs. Due to uncertain operating conditions of maritime ships on the sea, the dc bus voltage robust control is a crucial matter. Therefore, this paper presents a cutting-edge systematic review on advanced nonlinear control strategies to stabilize and control the CPLs in dc SMGs, such as sliding mode control, synergetic control, backstepping control, model predictive control, and passivity-based control. The latest stabilization techniques and the future trends towards an adaptive nonlinear control have been presented throughout this review.

Abstract

In modern dc shipboard microgrid (SMG) systems, the propulsion motors and hotel loads are always supplied through tightly regulated point of load converters, which behave as constant power loads (CPLs). The negative incremental impedance due to CPL’s characteristics destabilizes the dc bus voltage of dc SMGs. Due to uncertain operating conditions of maritime ships on the sea, the dc bus voltage robust control is a crucial matter. Therefore, this paper presents a cutting-edge systematic review on advanced nonlinear control strategies to stabilize and control the CPLs in dc SMGs, such as sliding mode control, synergetic control, backstepping control, model predictive control, and passivity-based control. The latest stabilization techniques and the future trends towards an adaptive nonlinear control have been presented throughout this review. Several feedforward control-based observation and estimation techniques have been highlighted. The stability analysis and stability challenges of dc SMGs are also discussed.
