Improvements on Multiloop Control Design via Net Load Evaluation
(Pergamon-elsevier Science Ltd, 2013-02)
The plant-wide control problem is a very important topic in process control. A particular control structure design will define (restrict) the future operability degree for the plant under study. Classical control policies ...
Estabilização de sistemas fuzzy T-S incertos usando realimenta̧ão derivativa
In some practical problems, for instance, in the suppression of vibration in mechanical systems, the state-derivative signals are easier to obtain than the state signals. Thus, a method for state-derivative feedback design ...
Use of myoelectric signals to command mobile entertainment robot by disabled children: Design and control architecture
Severely disabled children have little chance of environmental and social exploration and discovery. This lack of interaction and independency may lead to an idea that they are unable to do anything by themselves. In an ...
H ∞ state feedback control of discrete-time Markov jump linear systems through linear matrix inequalities
This paper addresses the H ∞ state-feedback control design problem of discretetime Markov jump linear systems. First, under the assumption that the Markov parameter is measured, the main contribution is on the LMI ...
Trajectory-tracking controller design with constraints in the control signals: a case study in mobile robots
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-05)
This paper is a continuation of a previous work of the authors, Scaglia et al., 1. A method is presented to choose the controller parameters such that, the values of the control actions do not exceed the maximum allowable ...
Integration of control aspects and uncertainty in the process design of polymerization reactors
(Elsevier Science Sa, 2007-07)
In the last decades, the significant benefits of integrating control aspects in the early stages of process design have been shown. However, polymer engineering is just now incorporating this important methodology. Besides, ...
Economic design of a Vp X̄ chart
We develop an economic model for X̄ control charts having all design parameters varying in an adaptive way, that is, in real time considering current sample information. In the proposed model, each of the design parameters ...
Direct discrete time design of robust state derivative feedback control laws
This paper is concerned with the problem of designing robust state derivative feedback control laws in discrete time. The main contribution consists of a method for recasting a continuous time state space model in the form ...
