    This paper presents an optimal PI controller for automatic reactive power regulators (AQR) which equip some French hydro power plants. The developed AQR algorithm participates to secondary voltage control following some control performance criteria required by the Transmission System Operator. Controller parameters are calculated by solving a constrained nonlinear optimization that maximizes the r... View full abstract»

  • Simultaneous attitude stabilization and power tracking for a spacecraft with two VSCMGs

    An integrated power and attitude control system with two variable speed control moment gyroscopes positioned with their spin axes nominally co-aligned on the longitudinal roll axis of spacecraft is discussed. The system facilitates the management of electrical power and the generation of attitude control torque by accelerating or decelerating the flywheels to change the amounts of their angular mo...

  • Control of path constrained systems using feasible equilibrium paths; a robotics application

    A method to control the transition of path constrained nonlinear systems of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) between equilibrium states is presented. The main idea is to control the system such that its state space trajectory is close to an equilibrium path to which the initial and final states belong and which satisfies the constraints. Examples of a two link robotic manipulator control sub... View full abstract»

  • Hybrid quantised observer for multi-input-multi-output nonlinear systems

    Limit possibilities of state estimation under information constraints (limited information capacity of the coupling channel) for multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) nonlinear systems are evaluated. We give theoretical analysis for state estimation of nonlinear systems represented in Lurie form (linear part plus nonlinearity depending only on measurable outputs) with a first-order coder-decoder. It is ... View full abstract»

    Two similar algorithms are suggested: one calculates the determinant polynomial and the other calculates the adjoint polynomial of a square polynomial matrix. The algorithms are an extension of the Faddeevpsilas algorithms to calculate the determinant and adjoint polynomials of the resolvent of a square constant matrix. The algorithm to calculate the determinant polynomial gives the coefficients o... View full abstract»

  • Plane collision course detection between moving objects by transformation of coordinates

    This paper deals with the problem of collision course checking between objects moving in a two-dimensional working space. A relative kinematics system is derived, and a transformation of coordinates is applied to simplify the problem. Under this formulation, the collision course checking problem is studied in an equivalent virtual plane, where the collision course problem between two moving object... View full abstract»

    This paper designs an H2 controller with pole placement for a half-vehicle suspension system, reduces the controller order nearly by half and implements it in a digital signal processor. The mixed H2 and pole placement control strategy, together with controller order reduction, makes the controller hardware implementation reliable and easy. The reduced controller, assessed by...

  • Adaptive output feedback control of an underactuated three degrees-of-freedom model helicopter using neural networks

    In this paper we apply a recently developed neural network adaptive output feedback control methodology, suited to a class of nonlinear underactuated dynamical systems, to a three degrees-of-freedom (3DOF) model helicopter. Experimental results are presented and illustrate how this approach performs in the presence of modelling errors and parameter variations. Important topics concerning practical...

  • Nonlinear superheat and capacity control of a refrigeration plant

    Publication Year: 2008 , Page(s): 97 - 101

    This paper proposes a novel method for superheat and capacity control of refrigeration systems. The main idea is to control the superheat by the compressor speed and capacity by the refrigerant flow. A new low order nonlinear model of the evaporator is developed and used in the design of the nonlinear controller. The proposed method is validated by experimental results. View full abstract»
