Simple Robust Auto-Tuning Rules for 2-DoF PID Controllers

  Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of providing simple tuning rules for a two-degree-of-freedom (2-DoF) PID controller (PI2) with robustness considerations. The introduction of robustness as a matter of primary concern is by now well established among the control community. Among the different ways of introducing a robustness constraint into the design stage, the purpose […]

New Missile Guidance Law for Moving Targets

Abstract: A novel nonlinear missile guidance law against maneuvering targets is designed based on the principles of partial stability. It is demonstrated that in a real approach which is adopted with actual situations, each state of the guidance system must have a special behavior and asymptotic stability or exponential stability of all states is not realistic. […]

Design of a Self-Tuning Regulator for Temperature Control of a Polymerization Reactor

Abstract: The temperature control of a polymerization reactor described by Chylla and Haase, a control engineering benchmark problem, is used to illustrate the potential of adaptive control design by employing a self-tuning regulator concept. In the benchmark scenario, the operation of the reactor must be guaranteed under various disturbing influences, e.g., changing ambient temperatures or impurity […]

Position Control of a Servo-Hydraulic Rotary Actuator Via a Neurobiologically Motivated Algorithm

Abstract: This paper presents a new intelligent approach for adaptive control of a nonlinear dynamic system. A modified version of the brain emotional learning based intelligent controller (BELBIC), a bio-inspired algorithm based upon a computational model of emotional learning which occurs in the amygdala, is utilized for position controlling a real laboratorial rotary electro-hydraulic servo (EHS) […]

A Portable Hardware-In-The-Loop Device for Automotive Diagnostic Control Systems

Abstract: In-vehicle driving tests for evaluating the performance and diagnostic functionalities of engine control systems are often time consuming, expensive, and not reproducible. Using a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation approach, new control strategies and diagnostic functions on a controller area network (CAN) line can be easily tested in real time, in order to reduce the effort and […]

PI and Fuzzy Logic Controllers for Shunt Active Power Filter

Abstract: This paper presents a shunt Active Power Filter (APF) for power quality improvements in terms of harmonics and reactive power compensation in the distribution network. The compensation process is based only on source current extraction that reduces the number of sensors as well as its complexity. A Proportional Integral (PI) or Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) […]

Decentralized Supervisory Based Switching Control for Uncertain Multivariable Plants

Abstract: In this paper, the design of decentralized switching control for uncertain multivariable plants is considered. In the proposed strategy, the uncertainty region is divided into smaller regions with a nominal model and specific control structure. The underlying design is based on the quantitative feedback theory (QFT). It is assumed that a MIMO-QFT controller exists for […]

Pre-Processing Data Coming From a Laser-EMAT System for Non-Destructive Testing of Steel Slabs

Abstract: Non-destructive test systems are increasingly applied in the industrial context for their strong potentialities in improving and standardizing quality control. Especially in the intermediate manufacturing stages, early detection of defects on semi-finished products allow their direction towards later production processes according to their quality, with consequent considerable savings in time, energy, materials and work. However, […]
