INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL, Issue 18 2007

Abstract A stable robust control system design problem for unstable plants with input constraints is considered using robust right coprime factorization of nonlinear operator. For obtaining strong stability of the closed-loop system of unstable plants with input constraints, a design scheme of robust nonhyphen-linear control system is given based on robust right coprime factorization. Some conditions for the robustness and system output tracking of the unstable plant with input constraints are derived. Numerical examples are given to demonstrate the validity of the theoretical results. Copyright 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]

Abstract In this paper we consider a problem of on-line parameter identification of parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs). In the previous study, on the actuation side, both distributed (SIAM J. Optim. Control 1997; 35:678,713; IEEE Trans. Autom. Control 2000; 45:203,216) and boundary (IEEE Trans. Autom. Control 2000; 45:203,216) actuations were considered in the open loop, whereas for the closed loop (unstable plants) only distributed one was addressed. On the sensing side, only distributed sensing was considered. The present study goes beyond the identification framework of (SIAM J. Optim. Control 1997; 35:678,713; IEEE Trans. Autom. Control 2000; 45:203,216) by considering boundary actuation for the unstable plants, resulting in the closed-loop identification, and also introducing boundary sensing. This makes the proposed technique applicable to a much broader range of practical problems. As a first step towards the identification of general reaction,advection,diffusion systems, we consider two benchmark plants: one with an uncertain parameter in the domain and the other with an uncertain parameter on the boundary. We design the adaptive identifier that consists of standard gradient/least-squares estimators and backstepping adaptive controllers. The parameter estimates are shown to converge to the true parameters when the closed-loop system is excited by an additional constant input at the boundary. The results are illustrated with simulations. Copyright 2008 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]
