A method for restart of manufacturing systems has recently been introduced. After correction of a fault, the system resumes normal production by returning to a certain restart state in the control function, and from there reexecuting parts of the work schedule. The current paper concerns...
In this paper an approach for fault localization in closed-loop Discrete Event Systems is proposed. The presented diagnosis method allows fault localization using a fault-free system model to describe the expected system behavior. Via a systematic comparison of the observed and the expected...
Quadrotor helicopters continue to grow in popularity for unmanned aerial vehicle applications. However, accurate dynamic models for deriving controllers for moderate to high speeds have been lacking. This work presents theoretical models of quadrotor aerodynamics with non-zero free-stream...
This paper discusses the communication and control co-design and co-simulation of wireless networked control systems. The interactions between the network and the control system are considered, and general networking and control co-design solutions are proposed for wireless control applications....
Functional Safety is a major concern in the design of automation systems today. Many of those systems are realized using Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) programmed according to IEC 61131-3. PLCopen – as IEC 61131 user organization – semi-formally specified a set of software function...
In this paper, a new simple algorithm for averaging level control is presented. The proposed algorithm is based on the use of a static nonlinear controller to improve the input flow filtering by reducing the slope of the controller around the average input flow. In order to adapt the controller...
This paper presents a discrete event model-based approach for Fault Detection and Isolation of manufacturing systems. This approach considers a system as a set of independent Plant Elements (PEs). Each PE is composed of a set of interrelated Parts of Plant (PoPs) modeled by a Moore automaton....
This paper presents a new system for the optimized control of IKN-type cement coolers based on adaptive predictive methodology. The new system introduces the concepts of ’layer on grate’ and ’thickness of slope’, which allow a decoupled multivariable control of the layer of clinker over...
This paper addresses the problem of identifying the model of the unobservable behaviour of discrete event systems in the industrial automation sector. Assuming that the fault-free system structure and dynamics are known, the paper proposes an algorithm that monitors the system on-line, storing...
