  • An LMI approach for observer design for Takagi-Sugeno descriptor models

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 5
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (284 KB)

    This work presents a novel observer design for nonlinear descriptor systems using their Takagi-Sugeno representation. The approach allows obtaining more relaxed results than previous literature by changing the extended estimated state vector; this step permits using a full observer gain. The obtained conditions are pure LMI. Moreover, previous results are always included by the new ones. An exampl... View full abstract»

  • Fault-tolerant predictive control for Markov Linear Systems

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 6
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (143 KB)

    This work considers fault-tolerant control (FTC) for discrete-time Markov Jump Linear System (MJLS) subject to constraints on the state an control variables. The objective is to design a control law which depends on the jump variable, minimizing an average quadratic function. Improving over previous MJLS literature, input and state constraints are enforced. The initial condition of the system and ... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to present a method of control synthesis f o r a given train station system and train set based on optimal resource scheduling. A Genetic Algorithm was designed to resolve the resource allocation problem in an example train traffic system with three stations. A method of controller synthesis based on Genetic Programming is also presented. This method synthetizes contro... View full abstract»

  • Optimistic planning with long sequences of identical actions for near-optimal nonlinear control

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (178 KB)

    Optimistic planning for deterministic systems (OPD) is an algorithm able to find near-optimal control for very general, nonlinear systems. OPD iteratively builds near-optimal sequences of actions by always refining the most promising sequence; this is done by adding all possible one-step actions. However, OPD has large computational costs, which might be undesirable in real life applications. This... View full abstract»

  • Internal model control for a hydraulically driven robotic arm

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (255 KB)

    The robotic arm presented in this paper is part of an unloading machine used in the process of hot rolling to extract the heated billets from inside the rotary hearth furnace. The robotic arm positioning is hydraulically driven due to higher speed response. For the horizontal positioning of the arm a control structure is needed since the displacement of a billet is constantly changing. It is inten... View full abstract»

    The main purpose of this paper is determination of suitable weighting matrices to design a linear quadratic optimal controller for an inverted pendulum using the artificial bee colony algorithm. It is challenging to select appropriate weighting matrices for a linear quadratic optimal control system and there is no relevant systematic techniques presented for this goal. Generally, selecting these w... View full abstract»

  • Digitization of continuous interval transfer functions: A revisited method and its application on a case study

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 4
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (109 KB)

    A method that uses the Boxer-Thaler integrator to obtain an approximate discrete-time transfer function for uncertain continuous systems with interval uncertainties is revisited. The advantage of the approach lies in the fact that the interval structure of the continuous system is preserved in the resulting discrete model. This allows the application of existing robust results to the discretized s... View full abstract»

  • Fuzzy-based gain scheduling of Exact FeedForward Linearization control and sliding mode control for magnetic ball levitation system: A comparative study

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 6
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (584 KB)

    This paper presents a comparative study between two control approaches; an Exact FeedForward Linearization controller developed by fuzzy-gain scheduling and sliding mode controller based on Ackermann and Utkin method. For the later one the sliding surface dynamics are determined explicitly without transforming to the sliding mode canonical form. The benefits of this study are demonstrated practica...

  • EPSAC versus PID control of neuromuscular blockade

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 6
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (367 KB)

    The paper deals with the implementation of two controllers for the administration of neuromuscular blockade agents in general anaesthesia: Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) and Extended Prediction Self-Adaptive Control (EPSAC). Predictive control requires prior knowledge of system dynamics, therefore a mathematical model is required. A Wiener model has been initially identified, using real da... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive fuzzy iterative learning controller for X-Y table position control

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1 - 6
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (603 KB)

    In this paper, an adaptive fuzzy iterative learning control algorithm is proposed for controlling one of the Mecha-tronics systems. The proposed control scheme is based upon a proportional-derivative-integral (PID) iterative learning control (ILC), for which a fuzzy control is added to tune the parameters of the PID-type ILC. Moreover, an adaptation law is added to the fuzzy control in order to au... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a control system where the controlled plant is a distributed parameter process. Numerical simulation of the control system is accomplished using the method of Matrix of Partial Derivatives of the State Vector (Mpdx) associated with Taylor Series. By including a process modeled by a partial differential equation of second order with two independent variables, this pre... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (297 KB)

    Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMSs) are complex systems with machines that execute thousands of operation types with complex interactions. Three kinds of problems have to be solved: product specifications, production scheduling and the control the FMS to correctly manufacture the desired products. Wrong control signals can lead to scraps instead of the desired products or often to deadlocks. Cur... View full abstract»
