Résumé : Renewable energies are gaining space in the energy generation panorama, thanks to technological advances and policy support. To take profit of these energies in an optimal and sustained way, research of new control strategies becomes imperative. This work presents the study and application of a nonlinear control strategy, where a Smith Predictor is added to the Nonlinear Extended Prediction Self-Adaptive Control (NEPSAC), for the control of a Solar Power Plant. Different simulations are performed to study the effect of the design parameters in the dynamic behavior of the system. Copyright © 2007 IFAC.
