A deterministic LQ tracking problem: parametrisation of the controller

Ľuboš Čirka, Ján Mikleš, Miroslav Fikar (2002)

Kybernetika

The article discusses an optimal Linear Quadratic (LQ) deterministic control problem when the Youla–Kučera parametrisation of controller is used. We provide a computational procedure for computing a deterministic optimal single-input single-output (SISO) controller from any stabilising controller. This approach allows us to calculate a new optimal LQ deterministic controller from a previous one when the plant has changed. The design based on the Youla –Kučera parametrisation approach is compared...

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 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...

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...

Adaptive control of uncertain nonholonomic systems in finite time

Jiankui Wang, Guoshan Zhang, Hongyi Li (2009)

Kybernetika

In this paper, the finite-time stabilization problem of chained form systems with parametric uncertainties is investigated. A novel switching control strategy is proposed for adaptive finite-time control design with the help of Lyapunov-based method and time-rescaling technique. With the proposed control law, the uncertain closed-loop system under consideration is finite-time stable within a given settling time. An illustrative example is also given to show the effectiveness of the proposed controller....

Adaptive stabilization of coupled PDE–ODE systems with multiple uncertainties

Jian Li, Yungang Liu (2014)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

The adaptive stabilization is investigated for a class of coupled PDE-ODE systems with multiple uncertainties. The presence of the multiple uncertainties and the interaction between the sub-systems makes the systems to be considered more general and representative, and moreover it may result in the ineffectiveness of the conventional methods on this topic. Motivated by the existing literature, an infinite-dimensional backsteppping transformation with new kernel functions is first introduced to change...

Constrained robust adaptive stabilization for a class of lower triangular systems with unknown control direction

Jianglin Lan, Weijie Sun, Yunjian Peng (2014)

Kybernetika

This paper studies the constrained robust adaptive stabilization problem for a class of lower triangular systems with unknown control direction. A robust adaptive feedback control law for the systems is proposed by incorporating the technique of Barrier Lyapunov Function with Nussbaum gain. Such a controlled system arises from the study of the constrained robust output regulation problem for a class of output feedback systems with the unknown control direction and a nonlinear exosystem. An application...

Decentralized output regulation of large scale nonlinear systems with delay

Zhengtao Ding (2009)

Kybernetika

This paper deals with output regulation of a class of large-scale nonlinear systems with delays. Each of the subsystems is in the output feedback form, with nonlinear functions of the subsystem output and the outputs of other subsystems. The system outputs are subject to unknown constant delays. Both the system dynamics and the measurements are subject to unknown disturbances generated from unknown linear exosystems. Decentralized control design approach is adopted to design local controllers using...

Decentralized robust tracking control of uncertain large scale systems with multiple delays in the interconnections

Hansheng Wu (2009)

Kybernetika

The problem of the decentralized robust tracking and model following is considered for a class of uncertain large scale systems including time-varying delays in the interconnections. On the basis of the Razumikhin-type theorem and the Lyapunov stability theory, a class of decentralized memoryless local state feedback controllers is proposed for robust tracking of dynamical signals. It is shown that by employing the proposed decentralized robust tracking controllers, one can guarantee that the tracking...

Decentralized stabilization and strong stabilization of a bicoprime factorized plant

Dibyendu Baksi, V. V. Patel, Kanti B. Datta, Ray, G. D. (1999)

Kybernetika

In this paper, a necessary and sufficient condition for decentralized stabilizability for expanding construction of large scale systems is established which involves the computation of blocking zeros and testing a rational function for sign changes at these blocking zeros. Results for the scalar as also multivariable cases are presented and a systematic procedure for designing the stabilizing controller is also outlined. The proposed theory is applicable to a wider class of systems than those for...
