A 2D system approach to the design of a robust modified repetitive-control system with a dynamic output-feedback controller

Lan Zhou, Jinhua She, Shaowu Zhou (2014)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

This paper is concerned with the problem of designing a robust modified repetitive-control system with a dynamic outputfeedback controller for a class of strictly proper plants. Employing the continuous lifting technique, a continuous-discrete two-dimensional (2D) model is built that accurately describes the features of repetitive control. The 2D control input contains the direct sum of the effects of control and learning, which allows us to adjust control and learning preferentially. The singular-value...

A backstepping approach to ship course control

Anna Witkowska, Mirosław Tomera, Roman Smierzchalski (2007)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

As an object of course control, the ship is characterised by a nonlinear function describing static manoeuvring characteristics that reflect the steady-state relation between the rudder deflection and the rate of turn of the hull. One of the methods which can be used for designing a nonlinear ship course controller is the backstepping method. It is used here for designing two configurations of nonlinear controllers, which are then applied to ship course control. The parameters of the obtained nonlinear...

A modified van der Pol equation with delay in a description of the heart action

Beata Zduniak, Marek Bodnar, Urszula Foryś (2014)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In this paper, a modified van der Pol equation is considered as a description of the heart action. This model has a number of interesting properties allowing reconstruction of phenomena observed in physiological experiments as well as in Holter electrocardiographic recordings. Our aim is to study periodic solutions of the modified van der Pol equation and take into consideration the influence of feedback and delay which occur in the normal heart action mode as well as in pathological modes. Usage...

A necessary and sufficient condition for static output feedback stabilizability of linear discrete-time systems

Danica Rosinová, Vojtech Veselý, Vladimír Kučera (2003)


Necessary and sufficient conditions for a discrete-time system to be stabilizable via static output feedback are established. The conditions include a Riccati equation. An iterative as well as non-iterative LMI based algorithm with guaranteed cost for the computation of output stabilizing feedback gains is proposed and introduces the novel LMI approach to compute the stabilizing output feedback gain matrix. The results provide the discrete- time counterpart to the results by Kučera and De Souza.

Active fault tolerant control of nonlinear systems: The cart-pole example

Marcello Bonfè, Paolo Castaldi, Nicola Mimmo, Silvio Simani (2011)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

This paper describes the design of fault diagnosis and active fault tolerant control schemes that can be developed for nonlinear systems. The methodology is based on a fault detection and diagnosis procedure relying on adaptive filters designed via the nonlinear geometric approach, which allows obtaining the disturbance de-coupling property. The controller reconfiguration exploits directly the on-line estimate of the fault signal. The classical model of an inverted pendulum on a cart is considered...

Actuator fault tolerance in control systems with predictive constrained set-point optimizers

Piotr M. Marusak, Piotr Tatjewski (2008)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Mechanisms of fault tolerance to actuator faults in a control structure with a predictive constrained set-point optimizer are proposed. The structure considered consists of a basic feedback control layer and a local supervisory set-point optimizer which executes as frequently as the feedback controllers do with the aim to recalculate the set-points both for constraint feasibility and economic performance. The main goal of the presented reconfiguration mechanisms activated in response to an actuator...

Almost sufficient and necessary conditions for permanence and extinction of nonautonomous discrete logistic systems with time-varying delays and feedback control

Jiabo Xu, Zhidong Teng, Shujing Gao (2011)

Applications of Mathematics

A class of nonautonomous discrete logistic single-species systems with time-varying pure-delays and feedback control is studied. By introducing a new research method, almost sufficient and necessary conditions for the permanence and extinction of species are obtained. Particularly, when the system degenerates into a periodic system, sufficient and necessary conditions on the permanence and extinction of species are obtained. Moreover, a very important fact is found in our results, that is, the feedback...

An adaptive output feedback motion tracking controller for robot manipulators: uniform global asymptotic stability and experimentation

Antonio Yarza, Victor Santibanez, Javier Moreno-Valenzuela (2013)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

This paper deals with two important practical problems in motion control of robot manipulators: the measurement of joint velocities, which often results in noisy signals, and the uncertainty of parameters of the dynamic model. Adaptive output feedback controllers have been proposed in the literature in order to deal with these problems. In this paper, we prove for the first time that Uniform Global Asymptotic Stability (UGAS) can be obtained from an adaptive output feedback tracking controller,...

An Invariance Problem for Control Systems with Deterministic Uncertainty

Lech Górniewicz, Paolo Nistri (1996)

Banach Center Publications

This paper deals with a class of nonlinear control systems in R n in presence of deterministic uncertainty. The uncertainty is modelled by a multivalued map F with nonempty, closed, convex values. Given a nonempty closed set K R n from a suitable class, which includes the convex sets, we solve the problem of finding a state feedback ū(t,x) in such a way that K is invariant under any system dynamics f. As a system dynamics we consider any continuous selection of the uncertain controlled dynamics F.
