Interconnection damping assignment passivity based control (IDA-PBC) is an emerging control design method which allows an engineer to systematically design an advanced controller for complex non-linear systems. As a result specific gain ranges can be determined which can prevent an operator (adversary) from accidentally (maliciously) setting control gains which could potentially destabilize the system. However in order to generate the controller the engineer will have to resort to using symbolic numerical solvers in order to complete the design. This can be both a cumbersome and error-prone task which can be automated. We present initial results of a tool which simplifies IDA-PBC. In addition many fluid control problems posses tight operating regions in which pumps degrade over time. As a result actuator saturation may occur for given set-point profiles which will lead to integrator wind-up and more oscillatory behavior. We provide a non-linear anti-windup control-law which greatly improves system resilience to such degradation. Finally we demonstrate that IDA-PBC works reasonably well for moderately large sampling times by simply applying the bilinear transform to approximate any additional (non-linear) integral control terms.
