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 hierarchical decomposition of decision process Petri nets for modeling complex systems

Julio Clempner (2010)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

We provide a framework for hierarchical specification called Hierarchical Decision Process Petri Nets (HDPPNs). It is an extension of Decision Process Petri Nets (DPPNs) including a hierarchical decomposition process that generates less complex nets with equivalent behavior. As a result, the complexity of the analysis for a sophisticated system is drastically reduced. In the HDPPN, we represent the mark-dynamic and trajectory-dynamic properties of a DPPN. Within the framework of the mark-dynamic...

A Lyapunov-based design tool of impedance controllers for robot manipulators

Marco Mendoza, Isela Bonilla, Fernando Reyes, Emilio González-Galván (2012)

Kybernetika

This paper presents a design tool of impedance controllers for robot manipulators, based on the formulation of Lyapunov functions. The proposed control approach addresses two challenges: the regulation of the interaction forces, ensured by the impedance error converging to zero, while preserving a suitable path tracking despite constraints imposed by the environment. The asymptotic stability of an equilibrium point of the system, composed by full nonlinear robot dynamics and the impedance control,...

A model-based fault detection and diagnosis scheme for distributed parameter systems : a learning systems approach

Michael A. Demetriou (2002)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

In this note, fault detection techniques based on finite dimensional results are extended and applied to a class of infinite dimensional dynamical systems. This special class of systems assumes linear plant dynamics having an abrupt additive perturbation as the fault. This fault is assumed to be linear in the (unknown) constant (and possibly functional) parameters. An observer-based model estimate is proposed which serves to monitor the system’s dynamics for unanticipated failures, and its well...

A new fuzzy Lyapunov approach to non-quadratic stabilization of Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models

Ibtissem Abdelmalek, Noureddine Goléa, Mohamed Hadjili (2007)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In this paper, new non-quadratic stability conditions are derived based on the parallel distributed compensation scheme to stabilize Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy systems. We use a non-quadratic Lyapunov function as a fuzzy mixture of multiple quadratic Lyapunov functions. The quadratic Lyapunov functions share the same membership functions with the T-S fuzzy model. The stability conditions we propose are less conservative and stabilize also fuzzy systems which do not admit a quadratic stabilization....

A robust controller design method and stability analysis of an underactuated underwater vehicle

Cheng Siong Chin, Micheal Wai Shing Lau, Eicher Low, Gerald Gim Lee Seet (2006)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

The problem of designing a stabilizing feedback controller for an underactuated system is a challenging one since a nonlinear system is not stabilizable by a smooth static state feedback law. A necessary condition for the asymptotical stabilization of an underactuated vehicle to a single equilibrium is that its gravitational field has nonzero elements corresponding to unactuated dynamics. However, global asymptotical stability (GAS) cannot be guaranteed. In this paper, a robust proportional-integral-derivative...

A variable structure observer for the control of robot manipulators

Abdelkader Abdessameud, Mohamed Khelfi (2006)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

This paper deals with the application of a variable structure observer developed for a class of nonlinear systems to solve the trajectory tracking problem for rigid robot manipulators. The analyzed approach to observer design proposes a simple design methodology for systems having completely observable linear parts and bounded nonlinearities andor uncertainties. This observer is basically the conventional Luenberger observer with an additional switching term that is used to guarantee robustness...

Absolute stability results for well-posed infinite-dimensional systems with applications to low-gain integral control

Hartmut Logemann, Ruth F. Curtain (2010)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We derive absolute stability results for well-posed infinite-dimensional systems which, in a sense, extend the well-known circle criterion to the case that the underlying linear system is the series interconnection of an exponentially stable well-posed infinite-dimensional system and an integrator and the nonlinearity ϕ satisfies a sector condition of the form (ϕ(u),ϕ(u) - au) ≤ 0 for some constant a>0. These results are used to prove convergence and stability properties of low-gain integral...

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 analytical method for well-formed workflow/Petri net verification of classical soundness

Julio Clempner (2014)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In this paper we consider workflow nets as dynamical systems governed by ordinary difference equations described by a particular class of Petri nets. Workflow nets are a formal model of business processes. Well-formed business processes correspond to sound workflow nets. Even if it seems necessary to require the soundness of workflow nets, there exist business processes with conditional behavior that will not necessarily satisfy the soundness property. In this sense, we propose an analytical method...

Approximation of control laws with distributed delays: a necessary condition for stability

Sabine Mondié, Michel Dambrine, Omar Santos (2002)

Kybernetika

The implementation of control laws with distributed delays that assign the spectrum of unstable linear multivariable systems with delay in the input requires an approximation of the integral. A necessary condition for stability of the closed-loop system is shown to be the stability of the controller itself. An illustrative multivariable example is given.

Asymptotic null controllability of bilinear systems

Fritz Colonius, Wolfgang Kliemann (1995)

Banach Center Publications

The region of asymptotic null controllability of bilinear systems with control constraints is characterized using Lyapunov exponents. It is given by the cone over the region of attraction of the maximal control set in projective space containing zero in its spectral interval.
