In the control of flexible structures many methods are used to reduce residual vibration due to the excitation of flexible modes. Input shaping, a feed-forward method, typically convolves the input with a sequence of impulses that are independent of the system maneuver. While reducing the...
New formulas for the asymptotic variance of the parameter estimates in subspace identification, show that the accuracy of the parameter estimates depends on certain indices of ‘near collinearity’ of the state and future input subspaces of the system to be identified. This complements the...
In this paper, a new formulation of constrained stabilizing receding-horizon control is proposed. This formulation is based on the use of open-loop steering path generators. The open-loop optimization problem associated to the proposed receding-horizon formulation is scalar in which the...
There is experimental evidence that the performance of standard subspace algorithms from the literature (e.g. the N4SID method) may be surprisingly poor in certain experimental conditions. This happens typically when the past signals (past inputs and outputs) and future input spaces are nearly...
The main result of this paper is to show that the linear part can be made decoupled from the nonlinear part in Hammerstein model identification. Therefore, identification of the linear part for a Hammerstein model becomes a linear problem and accordingly enjoys the same convergence and...
This paper discusses the optimal continuous-time control problem of a class of piecewise affine (PWA) systems, where the switching action of the discrete state is determined at each sampling time according to a condition on the continuous state. Such a system is called here the sampled-data PWA...
We present a discrete-time prediction-based state-feedback controller. It is shown that this controller stabilizes possibly unstable continuous-time delay systems. The stability is shown to be robust with respect to uncertainties in the knowledge on the plant parameters, the system delay and the...
This paper formulates an unconstrained optimal policy for control of regular languages realized as deterministic finite state automata (DFSA). A signed real measure quantifies the behavior of controlled sublanguages based on a state transition cost matrix and a characteristic vector as reported...
Discrete-time receding horizon optimal control is employed in model-based anti-windup augmentation. The optimal control formulation enables designs that minimize the mismatch between the unconstrained closed-loop response with a given controller and the constrained closed-loop response with...
