    A sliding mode control (SMC) design method is proposed for a class of point delayed systems. A linear transformation is applied to convert the delayed system to delay-free system whose spectra embed all the unstable poles of the original system with given stability margin. It is proved that the delayed system is asymptotically stable with SMC based on the delay-free system. The method is applied t... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the problem of coordinating multiple spacecraft to fly in tightly controlled formations. The main contribution of the paper is to introduce a coordination architecture that subsumes leader-following, behavioral, and virtual-structure approaches to the multiagent coordination problem. The architecture is illustrated through a detailed application of the ideas to the problem of ... View full abstract»

    We apply the energy-shaping controller design technique to the speed regulation of permanent magnet synchronous motors. To illustrate different design choices, two controllers are presented along with their stability analysis. The resulting schemes consist of a static state feedback to which a simple nonlinear observer is added to estimate the unknown load torque. It is shown that, for isotropic r... View full abstract»

    The objective of this paper is to realize a fuzzy logic controller for an aeroload simulator, which simulates the aerodynamic load that a missile is subjected to on flight. In this paper, we propose a new fuzzy logic controller using the phase plane, in order to improve the overall performance of the aeroload simulator system. The design procedure and method of this controller are easy and simple ... View full abstract»

    In a hot strip mill, the strip is cooled by spraying water from top and bottom on the runout table (ROT), before the strip is coiled. The desired mechanical properties and metallurgical structure of the strip are achieved by controlling the cooling rate and temperature of the strip on the ROT. This paper describes a novel online parallel controller which incorporates both feedforward and feedback ... View full abstract»

    We present a new approach for the design of a plasma current and shape feedback control system in a Tokamak. This approach takes explicitly into account the problem of current saturation in the coils which are used for the control action. The proposed design technique is essentially aimed at enlarging the operating envelope in which the Tokamak can operate without current saturation. The proposed ... View full abstract»
