Abstract    In this paper, a hardware in the loop simulation (HIL) is presented. This application is purposed as the first step before a real implementation of a Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) on a micro-grid system located at the Military University Campus in Cajica, Colombia. The designed GPC, looks for keep the battery bank State of Charge (SOC) over the 70% and under the 90%, what ensures the best performance in the battery bank according its technical specifications. The GPC algorithm was embedded on a STM32 microcontroller and the micro-grid model was embedded on an ARDUINO MEGA microcontroller.


Keywords    Generalized Predictive Control, Hardware in the Loop, Micro-grid, STM32


چکیده    در این مقاله، یک سخت افزار در شبیه سازی حلقه (HIL) ارائه شده است. این برنامه به عنوان اولین قدم قبل از اجرای واقعی یک کنترل پیش بینی عمومی (GPC) بر روی یک سیستم میکرو شبکه واقع در پردیس دانشگاه نظامی در Cajica، کلمبیا است. GPC طراحی شده است، انتظار می رود که شارژ باتری در حالت شارژ (SOC) بیش از 70٪ و کمتر از 90٪ باشد، که بهترین عملکرد را در باتری با توجه به مشخصات فنی آن تضمین می کند. الگوریتم GPC بر روی یک میکروکنترلر STM32 قرار گرفت و مدل میکرو شبکه بر روی یک میکروکنترلر ARDUINO MEGA تعبیه شد.
