Among the medical device therapies for end-stage heart disease are ventricular assist devices that work in conjunction with a diseased heart. The control of ventricular assist devices (VAD) is an intriguing and challenging engineering problem due to the complexity of the combined cardiovascular/VAD “plant,” and the importance of reliable and high-performance control algorithms. In this paper we present an overview of control architecture issues in cardiac assist systems relating to actuator and sensor placements
