    A remote laboratory for automatic control is presented. The main aim of this laboratory is to allow students to easily interact with a set of physical processes through the Internet. The student can run experiments, change control parameters, and analyze the results remotely. The automatic control telelab (ACT) allows the user to choose a predefined controller or synthesize a new controller throug... View full abstract»

  • Damping control of diesel drivetrain oscillations

    Publication Year: 2004
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (715 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Modern diesel engines with direct fuel injection provide dynamic engine performance with good fuel economy. Elasticity within the drivetrain causes torsional oscillations that affect the vehicle in the range 3 - 6 Hz and are uncomfortable for the passengers. Because of this, Siemens has developed an active damping controller for drivetrain oscillations. The basis of the new approach is a state spa... View full abstract»

    The World Wide Web has provided an opportunity for design and analysis of control systems through the Internet. An increasing number of Web-based software packages have been developed to enhance the teaching and design of control systems. A Web-based interactive control design and analysis system (WCDAS) based on Ch (which is a C/C++ interpreter) and Ch control systems toolkit is developed. Most f... View full abstract»

    This article includes an implementation of an 802.11b wireless control loop with high communication rates and a timing scheme that uses clock driven sensing and actuation with event-driven control. The timing scheme was implemented using standard PCs and an 802.11b peer-to-peer wireless network. The control scheme was scaled up to a multimode multiplant arrangement with coordination among loops. T... View full abstract»

    It is well known that most analysis and design problems in robust and nonlinear control can be formulated as global optimization problems with polynomial objective functions and constraints. The objective of this article is to show how GloptiPoly can solve challenging nonconvex optimization problems in robust nonlinear control. GloptiPoly is a general-purpose software with a user-friendly interfac... View full abstract»
