In this paper, an intelligent sliding mode controlled voltage source inverter (VSI) is developed to achieve not only quick transient behavior, but satisfactory steady-state response. The presented approach combines the respective merits of a nonsingular fast terminal attractor (NFTA) as well as an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS). The NFTA allows no singularity and error states to be converged to the equilibrium within a finite time, while conventional sliding mode control (SMC) leads to long-term (infinite) convergent behavior. However, there is the likelihood of chattering or steady-state error occurring in NFTA due to the overestimation or underestimation of system uncertainty bound. The ANFIS with accurate estimation and the ease of implementation is employed in NFTA for suppressing the chatter or steady-state error so as to improve the system’s robustness against uncertain disturbances. Simulation results display that this described approach yields low distorted output wave shapes and quick transience in the presence of capacitor input rectifier loading as well as abrupt connection of linear loads. Experimental results conducted on a 1 kW VSI prototype with control algorithm implementation in Texas Instruments DSP (digital signal processor) support the theoretic analysis and reaffirm the robust performance of the developed VSI. Because the proposed VSI yields remarkable benefits over conventional terminal attractor VSIs on the basis of computational quickness and unsophisticated realization, the presented approach is a noteworthy referral to the designers of correlated VSI applications in future, such as DC (direct current) microgrids and AC (alternating current) microgrids, or even hybrid AC/DC microgrids.
