    Switched systems with positivity constraints arise in various areas. They have been fruitfully employed to model consensus problems, biological systems dynamics and, recently, viral mutation dynamics under drug treatment. The theory of "positive switched systems" is rather challenging and offers quite a number of interesting open problems. In the talk, we will illustrate the main results available...

  • PD+ attitude control of rigid bodies with improved performance

    We address the problem of state feedback attitude control of a rigid body in quaternion coordinate space through a modified PD+ tracking controller. The control law ensures faster convergence to the desired operating point during attitude maneuver, while keeping the gains small for station keeping. A direct consequence is a drop in energy consumption when affected by sensor noise. More precisely, ... View full abstract»

  • Market-based control mechanisms for electric power demand response

    We propose a settlement mechanism for optimally scheduling real time electricity consumption which is suitable for an automated demand response control system. Our proposed settlement mechanism, supply function bidding, is interpreted as a Newton algorithm for optimization problems with decomposable structure, and it is shown to satisfy the second fundamental theorem of welfare economics for the c...

  • Nonholonomic passive decomposition: Weak decomposability, controllability and control design

    We extend the results of to general non-holonomic mechanical systems with weak decomposability (as opposed to strong decomposability). That is, for a nonholonomic mechanical system (or for multiple of them) with weak decomposability, given a submersion h defined on their configuration space and specifying a certain motion coordination aspect (e.g. internal formation shape), we can decompose their ...

  • An optimal state estimator for a fuel valve actuator

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):3439 - 3444

    We describe a digital implementation of a Kalman filter to estimate the true values of the angular position, the angular velocity and the coil current of a motor used to drive a fuel valve. By modeling the effect of coil current on the position sensor as a linear additive term, and the uncertainties in the actuator parameters as an additive random noise on the angular position, angular velocity an...

  • Consensus protocols for multi-agent systems with delays and noises in transmission channels

    This paper studies the consensus problem for linear discrete-time multi-agent systems with delays and noises in transmission channels. The decaying weights of the consensus protocol satisfying persistence condition are applied to attenuate the effect of the noises so as to achieve the consensus. Necessary and sufficient conditions for strong consensus is given under fixed topology. A numerical exa... View full abstract»

  • Controller synthesis for input-output LPV models

    This paper considers the synthesis of linear parameter-varying (LPV) controllers for plant models given in input-output LPV form. For SISO systems, a method for synthesizing LPV gain-scheduled controllers in input-output form has been proposed recently, where the a priori choice of a central polynomial plays a critical role, and the synthesis problem is solved using a sum-of-squares relaxation. In... View full abstract»

  • Parameter estimation of an electronic load sensing pump using the Recursive Least Squares algorithm

    This paper describes a method to estimate in realtime the parameters of a linear model of an electronic load sensing (ELS) pump. It consists of a pressure sensor to measure the load pressure, a pressure sensor to measure the pump discharge pressure, and a Recursive Least Squares (RLS) algorithm implemented in software that runs on an Electronic Control (ECM) in real-time. The RLS algorithm estimat... View full abstract»

  • Performance-lossless complexity reduction in Explicit MPC

    The idea of Explicit Model Predictive Control (MPC) is to find the optimal control input as an explicit Piecewise Affine (PWA) function of the initial conditions. The function, however, is often too complex to be processed by a typical control hardware setup in real time. Therefore the paper proposes a novel method of replacing a generic continuous PWA function by a different function of significa... View full abstract»

  • Errors-in-variables identification using a Generalized Instrumental Variable Estimation method

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):322 - 327

    Several estimation methods have been proposed for identifying dynamic errors-in-variables models. In the paper it is shown how a number of common methods for errors-in-variables methods can be put into a general framework, resulting in a Generalized Instrumental Variable Estimator. Computational aspects and the asymptotic distribution of the parameter estimates are presented. View full abstract»
