    Calin: It started with my passion for mathematics. I grew up in communist Romania. The country was more or less closed to the outside world at that time. There was a shortage of food, gas, and electricity. There was no freedom of speech and basically no TV. There was one good thing though in Romania at that time: the rigorous, math-and science-oriented school system. With not much to do, studying ... View full abstract»

    Kristin: In primary and middle school, I generally liked a lot of the subjects and had a very difficult time deciding which profession I wanted to pursue. In high school, I studied music, playing the piano and singing, and this made it very clear to me that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics was the way to go. View full abstract»

    Linda: I was born in Manchester, Connecticut, and grew up in Bolton, Connecticut, a very small, rural town in the central part of the state with a high school graduating class of about 50 students. My father was an oil-burning furnace serviceman with a keen interest in tinkering "down cellar." My mother was a medical transcriptionist. My favorite school subjects were math and English, and it was m... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1524 KB)

    Most geometric control-design methods for nonlinear systems assume that all state variables are available for feedback in real time. Unfortunately, the entire state is usually too expensive or impossible to measure, and some form of estimation is necessary. Unlike linear timeinvariant systems, where the state-estimation problem is analogous to the control-design problem, the design of a stable obs... View full abstract»

  • Luenberger-Like Observers for Nonlinear Time-Delay Systems with Application to the Artificial Pancreas: The Attainment of Good Performance

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):33 - 49
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2941 KB)

    The analysis and control of time-delay systems has gained increasing interest in the last decades due to the effectiveness of delay differential equations (DDEs) in modeling a wide range of physical and engineering frameworks, such as ecological systems, industrial processes, telerobotic systems, earth-controlled satellite devices, and biomedical engineering. Another significant application area t... View full abstract»

    The estimation of unknown inputs and/or disturbances has been a topic of constant interest in control engineering for the past several decades; see [1] for a detailed survey on the development of unknown input observers. Disturbance observers (DOBs) are a special class of unknown input observers that were introduced for robust motion-control applications in the early 1980s [2]. Since their introdu...

  • Revisiting the State-of-Charge Estimation for Lithium-Ion Batteries: A Methodical Investigation of the Extended Kalman Filter Approach

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6896 KB)

    With high energy/power density, flexible and lightweight design, low self-discharge rates and long cycle life, lithium-ion (Li<sup>+</sup>) batteries have experienced a surging growth since being commercialized in the early 1990s [1]. They are dominant today in the consumer electronics sector. Due to continually declining manufacturing costs, they are also rapidly penetrating s... View full abstract»
