  • Visualisation tools for 2-D system design

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):10/1 - 10/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (260 KB)

    Graphical procedures have been used within control system design for over two decades. In classical linear systems theory, frequency domain representations such as Bode and root locus techniques, using 2-D graphics terminals, allow the engineer to assess very rapidly the behaviour of the system and picture, in a broad sense, the effect of compensation on it. Various powerful, new control design te... View full abstract»

  • Object oriented interface to Matlab

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):9/1 - 9/3
    Cited by:  Patents (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (188 KB)

    For many novice users the interface to Matlab can appear somewhat daunting. Users brought up on programs with a graphical user interface can find the command line interface presented by Matlab daunting. For average users, requiring the ability to perform tasks such as Control System Design and basic Signal Processing operations, numerous calls to Matlab routines need to be learnt to achieve even t...

  • The Development Framework: work in progress towards a real-time control system design environment

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):4/1 - 4/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (240 KB)

    This paper describes work in progress on two extensions to the environment of a Development Framework for the design of control system software; hybrid system design and design of dependable systems. The Development Framework automatically converts a control engineering specification into a parallel implementation. Hybrid control systems are a combination of real-time control law and discrete-stat... View full abstract»

  • Integration using a unified model for CACSD

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):2/1 - 2/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB)

    This paper presents an approach to the definition of an object-oriented integrated environment for computer-aided control systems design. Today's specialised CACSD tools are software programs that deal in detail with single processes of control systems design. Such tools offer better control of the processes they model than generic CACSD packages-all-in-one tools with limited flexibility. Alternat... View full abstract»

  • Intelligent object-oriented modelling

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):6/1 - 6/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    The main aim of this paper is to present an understanding of the nature, purpose and future developments in intelligent object-oriented modelling arising from a research project being carried out by the Control and Computer Aided Engineering (CCAE) research group at Swansea. Three important concepts for engineering modelling are emphasised: the independence of modelling from simulation; the object... View full abstract»

  • The ANDECS framework for integrating dynamics modeling, simulation and CACSD tools in interactive loops

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):3/1 - 3/2
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (108 KB)

    ANDECS belongs to the new generation of open CAE systems for computational experimenting in controlled dynamics systems simulation, analysis, and multi-objective optimization. Strict databased function modularization with neutral object-oriented data- and model interfaces allows a flexible configuration of computational chains and loops. Function modules are available for basic mathematical method... View full abstract»

  • Knowledge acquisition as part of a practical CACSD approach

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):8/1 - 8/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (300 KB)

    Describes an approach to process modelling that aims at making use of the experience with respect to process behaviour that engineers in industry accumulate during their everyday work. Making extensive use of graphical interface facilities, the approach is implemented into an interactive computer program which is designed in such a way that it can be handled by engineers without experience in proc...

  • CACSD, GUI's, and the Multivariable Frequency Domain Toolbox

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):5/1 - 5/2
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (148 KB)

    Describes a new version of the Multivariable Frequency Domain Toolbox for Matlab. The intellectual issue which arises here is whether there is a role for Matlab-4 GUI facilities in a Toolbox which provides relatively low-level functionality, with a correspondingly random pattern of user interaction. The author opines that there is a role, but it is very restricted: in effect only for providing con... View full abstract»

  • A hybrid modelling and simulation strategy for process integration and control

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):7/1 - 7/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (188 KB)

    The paper describes a framework for the modelling and simulation of hybrid systems and the implementation of the strategy in the real-time Expert System tool, G2. The strategy is predicated on three key notions: hybrid model base, interactions between dissimilar model elements, and hybrid simulation. The combination of a hybrid model structure, incorporating Grafcets, equations, rules and objects,... View full abstract»
