A federated approach to parallel and distributed simulation of complex systems

Andrzej Sikora, Ewa Niewiadomska-Szynkiewicz (2007)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

The paper describes a Java-based framework called ASimJava that can be used to develop parallel and distributed simulators of complex real-life systems. Some important issues associated with the implementation of parallel and distributed simulations are discussed. Two principal paradigms for constructing simulations today are considered. Particular attention is paid to an approach for federating parallel and distributed simulators. We describe the design, performance and applications of the ASimJava...

A sample-time adjusted feedback for robust bounded output stabilization

Patricio Ordaz, Hussain Alazki, Alexander Poznyak (2013)


This paper deals with a bounded control design for a class of nonlinear systems where the mathematical model may be not explicitly given. This class of uncertain nonlinear systems governed by a system of ODE with quasi-Lipschitz right-hand side and containing external perturbations as well. The Attractive Ellipsoid Method (AEM) application permits to describe the class of nonlinear feedbacks (containing a nonlinear projection operator, a linear state estimator and a feedback matrix-gain) guaranteeing...

An efficient computation of the solution of the block decoupling problem with coefficient assignment over a ring

Jean Assan, Anna Maria Perdon (1999)


The paper presents procedures to check solvability and to compute solutions to the Block Decoupling Problem over a Noetherian ring and procedures to compute a feedback law that assigns the coefficients of the compensated system while mantaining the decoupled structure over a Principal Ideal Domain. The algorithms have been implemented using MapleV® and CoCoA [CoCoA].

An example of the knowledge based controller-design and evaluation.

Oto Tezak (1999)

Mathware and Soft Computing

Knowledge based controller for a balance control model is presented in this paper. The design of the controller was based on the human control of the same process. Developed controller is tested by means of simulation and operation on the laboratory balance control model. The simulation results of the controller as well as a statistical description of the experiments with developed controller and human control is presented in the paper. Verification is based on experiments with an intelligent controller...

An infinite horizon predictive control algorithm based on multivariable input-output models

Maciej Ławryńczuk, Piotr Tatjewski (2004)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In this paper an infinite horizon predictive control algorithm, for which closed loop stability is guaranteed, is developed in the framework of multivariable linear input-output models. The original infinite dimensional optimisation problem is transformed into a finite dimensional one with a penalty term. In the unconstrained case the stabilising control law, using a numerically reliable SVD decomposition, is derived as an analytical formula, calculated off-line. Considering constraints needs solving...

Application of a second order VSC to nonlinear systems in multi-input parametric-pure-feedback form

Antonella Ferrara, Luisa Giacomini (2000)


The use of a multi-input control design procedure for uncertain nonlinear systems expressible in multi-input parametric-pure feedback form to determine the control law for a class of mechanical systems is described in this paper. The proposed procedure, based on the well-known backstepping design technique, relies on the possibility of extending to multi-input uncertain systems a second order sliding mode control approach recently developed, thus reducing the computational load, as well as increasing...

Application of bearing and distance trees to the identification of landmarks on the coast

Tomasz Praczyk (2007)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

The problem of continuous position availability is one of the most important issues connected with the human activity at sea. Because the availability of satellite navigational systems can be limited in some cases, e.g. during military operations, one has to consider additional methods of acquiring information about the ship's position. In this paper one of these methods is presented, which is based on exploiting landmarks located on a coastline. A navigational radar is used to obtain information...

Comparison of the stability boundary and the frequency response stability condition in learning and repetitive control

Szathys Songschon, Richard Longman (2003)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In iterative learning control (ILC) and in repetitive control (RC) one is interested in convergence to zero tracking error as the repetitions of the command or the periods in the command progress. A condition based on steady state frequency response modeling is often used, but it does not represent the true stability boundary for convergence. In this paper we show how this useful condition differs from the true stability boundary in ILC and RC, and show that in applications of RC the distinction...

Computer aided design of mechatronic systems

Zbigniew Mrozek (2003)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Any successful company must react quickly to changing trends in the market. New products should be designed and manufactured quicker and cheaper than counter partners do. A shorter design time provides a distinct competitive advantage. The paper describes two approaches towards designing interdisciplinary mechatronic systems: the first is visual modelling with the UML, the second is physical modelling with Modelica.

Control of an induction motor using sliding mode linearization

Erik Etien, Sébastien Cauet, Laurent Rambault, Gérard Champenois (2002)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Nonlinear control of the squirrel induction motor is designed using sliding mode theory. The developed approach leads to the design of a sliding mode controller in order to linearize the behaviour of an induction motor. The second problem described in the paper is decoupling between two physical outputs: the rotor speed and the rotor flux modulus. The sliding mode tools allow us to separate the control from these two outputs. To take account of parametric variations, a model-based approach is used...

Control of constrained nonlinear uncertain discrete-time systems via robust controllable sets: a modal interval analysis approach

Jian Wan, Josep Vehí, Ningsu Luo, Pau Herrero (2009)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

A general framework for computing robust controllable sets of constrained nonlinear uncertain discrete-time systems as well as controlling such complex systems based on the computed robust controllable sets is introduced in this paper. The addressed one-step control approach turns out to be a robust model predictive control scheme with feasible unit control horizon and contractive constraint. The solver of 1-dimensional quantified set inversion in modal interval analysis is extended to 2-dimensional...
