SMC is one of the robust controller with ability to compensate the uncertain parameters, incomplete dynamics model and to reject disturbances. The additional of PI on the SMC gives several “extra” freedoms and flexibility in tuning and obtaining the desired performance.

Design scheme:
First, select a PI sliding surface. Second, from the sliding surface we derive the equivalent control. Third, the control output is achieved by adding the switching control output. The mathematics derivation is straight forward.

Here is an experiment of position control using Proportional sliding mode control of a BLDC motor. (more…)
