Application of Robust Antiwindup Techniques to Dynamically Substructured Systems
Dynamically substructured systems (DSS) play an important role in modern testing methods. DSS enables full-size critical components of a complete system to be tested physically in realtime, while the remaining parts of the ...
Model predictive control of sea wave energy converters–Part I: A convex approach for the case of a single device
This paper investigates model predictive control (MPC) of a single sea wave energy converter (WEC). By using control schemes which constrain certain quantities, such as the maximum size of the feedback force, the energy ...
Combustion control using a lobed swirl injector and a plasma swirler
A low swirl injector incorporating a lobed swirler and a plasma swirler was developed for combustion control. The lobed swirler was used to replace the vane swirler to enhance fuel/air mixing and stabilize flame downstream ...
Indefinite feedback MPC with preview information of bounded disturbance
This paper proposes a feedback model predictive control (MPC) strategy for linear time invariant discrete-time systems subject to predictable, persistent and bounded disturbances, and constraints on inputs and states. It ...
First observations from a partially inverted system dynamics course
© 2015 American Automatic Control Council. This paper examines the partial inversion of ME 450, an introductory dynamic system modeling course at Penn State University. To invert or 'flip' a course is to (i) introduce ...
