    In designing a fuzzy model and a fuzzy controller, we encounter a major difficulty in the identification of an optimised fuzzy rule base, which is traditionally achieved by a tedious trial and error process. The paper presents an approach to automatic design of optimal fuzzy rule bases for modelling and control using evolutionary programming. Such programming simultaneously evolves the structure a...

  • Exact feedback linearisation of a fifth-order model of synchronous generators

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):53 - 57
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (436 KB)

    In the last decade various control schemes for synchronous generators based upon exact feedback linearisation have been proposed. It is shown that a fifth-order model of synchronous machines can be exactly linearised via static state feedback. Such a model improves the modelling capability of the third-order model, which is commonly used when feedback-linearisation-based techniques are resorted to View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (680 KB)

    The improvement of a recently developed method for closed loop nonparametric system identification using multiharmonic perturbation signals is described. Intended primarily as a method for the periodic online retuning of three-term controllers, the original method is shown to benefit from an improved selection of its design parameters. A brief review of the original algorithm is first given, follo... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (592 KB)

    Discusses a class of nonlinear discrete sliding-mode control. The control system is designed on the basis of a discrete Lyapunov function. Part of the equivalent control is estimated by an online estimator, which is realised by a recurrent neural network (RNN) because of its outstanding ability for modelling a dynamical process. A real-time iterative learning algorithm is developed and used to tra... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (45)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (728 KB)

    A fuzzy neural network (FNN) position controller is proposed to control the ultrasonic motor (USM) servo drive. The FNN controller is trained online using the proposed delta adaptation law. Moreover, a new driving circuit for the travelling-wave type ultrasonic motor (USM), which is a push-pull DC-DC power converter and a two-phase series-resonant inverter combination, is presented. First, the net... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (21)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (788 KB)

    A novel identification approach based on an input-holding scheme is proposed for a class of nonlinear system which consists of a nonlinear element followed by a linear dynamical system. By only using an observed system output where the test input signal is held during a multiple of the output sampling interval, the parameters of the transfer function of the linear part can be identified first. The... View full abstract»

  • Indirect adaptive control via parallel dynamic neural networks

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):25 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (32)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB)

    Stability conditions for a parallel dynamic neural network by means of Lyapunov-like analysis are determined. The new learning law ensures that the identification error converges to zero (model matching) or to a bounded zone (with unmodelled dynamics). Based on the neural identifier we present a local optimal controller and analyse the tracking error. Our principal contributions are that we provid... View full abstract»

  • Stability robustness of feedback linearisable systems with input unmodelled dynamics

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):77 - 83
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (648 KB)

    The stability robustness of a feedback linearisable system subject to unstructured uncertainty is studied, with respect to the concepts of local input-to-state stability (ISS), local input-to-output stability (IOS) and small-signal L2-stability. A nonlinear small-gain theorem for feedback interconnected systems that are characterised by both local ISS and IOS is established. This theore... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    A salient feature of robust control schemes for nonlinear systems with delay on the state and the input is addressed. Using a state delay-dependent feedback linearisation algorithm, a nonlinear state-delay system having a linear input-output map can be determined. Composed of the Smith-type prediction and feedback linearisation, the nominal time-delay system can be completely compensated. An exten... View full abstract»

  • Design of output feedback controllers and output observers

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):108 - 112
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (428 KB)

    A new approach to the problem of eigenvalue assignment by output feedback is proposed. For an n-order linear dynamical system with m inputs and r outputs, the problem is reduced to a (n-m) state feedback control problem constrained by a simple system of linear algebraic equations. This solution is obtained for m+r⩾n+1. Otherwise, a new minimal-order dynamical observer is developed to provide t... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (504 KB)

    This paper considers the use of frozen-time H optimal controllers for time-varying applications. It is shown that, under suitable requirements on the plant, this method will result in an internally stable time-varying plant. This is done by first showing that the algebraic Riccati equations associated with the H control problem are analytic with respect to the p... View full abstract»

  • Eigenstructure assignment by output feedback: the case of common open- and closed-loop characteristic vectors

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):37 - 40
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (260 KB)

    A simple proof of an algorithm for eigenstructure assignment by output feedback is presented that allows naturally for the assignment of common open- and closed-loop characteristic vectors. The result is significant because the number of outputs plus the number of inputs required for arbitrary eigenvalue assignment may be reduced when some of the desired closed-loop characteristic vectors are comm...
