    Current interest in cooperative control of groups of mobile autonomous agents has led to the emergence of a broad range of exciting technical problem calling for the application of new and well-established control theoretic concepts together with other concepts devised originally for problems within entirely different fields. For example, the problem of maintaining a formation of autonomous agents... View full abstract»

  • Calibrating the Control Engineer

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):nil8 - nil9
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (175 KB)

    When applied to a physical system, a control law needs to be "personalized". It must be adjusted from product to product, family to family. Everyone down the line knows this, from designer to calibrator, to anyone involved with the implementation. So where does the control engineer fit into this scenario? The American Heritage Dictionary doesn't define control engineer, but it does define calibrat... View full abstract»

  • The Continuing Joy of Dissipation Inequalities

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):nil9 - nil10
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (143 KB)

    Dissipation inequalities play a fundamental role in systems and control theory and dissipativity is a very useful concept in the analysis and design of nonlinear control systems. The idea of dissipativity was introduced in the early 1970s as a generalization of Lyapunov inequalities to systems having inputs and outputs. While Lyapunov functions serve to show the stability of dynamical systems, dis... View full abstract»

  • Control of Flexible Structures: From Large Space Structures to Disk Drive Read/Write Arms

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):nil10 - nil11
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (112 KB)

    In the past, manipulators, machine tools, measurement and many other systems were designed with rigid structures and operated at relatively low speeds. With an increasing demand for fuel efficiency, smaller actuators, and speed, lighter weight materials are now often used in the construction of systems, making them more flexible. Flexible structures are also prevalent in space systems where lightw... View full abstract»

    As the world grows more complicated so do control systems. In can be very hard to simulate and/or to develop intuition for a complex system described by a high dimensional model so tools have been developed to approximate a high dimensional model by a lower dimensional one. One goal of such an approximation could be that the input to output map of the lower dimensional model should be a good appro... View full abstract»

  • H Filtering with Inequality Constraints for Aircraft Turbofan Engine Health Estimation

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):3291 - 3296

    H filters (also called minimax filters) can estimate the state variables of a dynamic system. However, in the application of state estimators, some known signal information is often either ignored or dealt with heuristically. The contribution of this paper is three-fold: first, this paper extends previous work on equality-constrained H filtering and derives ... View full abstract»

  • Trajectory optimization in terms of quasi-velocity vector

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):881 - 886
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (225 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper deals with optimization of unnormalized quasi-velocities (UQV) introduced originally by Jain and Rodriguez (1995). The UQV are based on a decomposition of the manipulator mass matrix. The optimization is based on the Pontryagin maximum principle. It is shown that the optimal UQV make it possible to detect some properties of the system that are not observable if the system is described b... View full abstract»

  • Scheduling and Control of Mobile Communications Networks with Randomly Time Varying Channels by Stability Methods

    Consider a communications network consisting of mobiles, some of which can serve as a receiver and/or transmitter in a multihop path. There are random external data processes, each destined for some destinations. At each mobile the data is queued according to the source-destination pair until transmitted. The capacities of the connecting channels are randomly varying. Time is divided into small sc... View full abstract»

  • Numerical Approximations for Optimal Controls for Stochastic Systems With Delays

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (243 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The Markov chain approximation numerical methods are widely used to compute optimal value functions and controls for stochastic and deterministic systems. We extend them to controlled general nonlinear delayed reflected diffusion models. The path, control, and reflection terms can all be delayed. Previous work developed convergent numerical approximations. But when the control and reflection terms... View full abstract»

  • On Robust Stability of Uncertain Neutral Systems: A Novel Augmented Lyapunov Functional

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):194 - 198
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4739 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper a new class of augmented Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is introduced for the robust stability of linear uncertain neutral systems. The uncertainties under consideration are norm bounded. Delay-dependent robust stability criteria are derived in the form of linear matrix inequalities. Model transformation and bounding on the cross terms are avoided. Numerical examples are presented to... View full abstract»
