  1. 1. Geometric Control of Thrust Propelled Systems

    Author : Pedro Miguel Ótão Pereira; Dimos V. Dimarogonas; Jana Tumova; Panagiotis Tsiotras; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nonlinear control; geometric control; thrust propelled systems; slung load transportation; aerial tethered transportation; control of aerial vehicles; tracking and stabilization; global stabilization; bounded control; disturbance removal; distributed control; attitude synchronization; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis was motivated and inspired by the AEROWORKS project, a European research project, whose main goal was to deploy multiple heterogeneous unmanned aerial vehicles in environments where human intervention is restricted.In particular, this thesis focuses on control of aerial vehicles for the purposes of cargo transportation, an application of interest, for example, in inspection and maintenance of aging infrastructures.

  2. 2. Stochastic Event-Based Control and Estimation

    Author : Toivo Henningsson; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; event-based control; event-based estimation; sporadic control; stochastic control; stochastic hybrid systems; sum-of-squares methods; control over networks; quantized measurements;

    Abstract : Digital controllers are traditionally implemented using periodic sampling, computation, and actuation events. As more control systems are implemented to share limited network and CPU bandwidth with other tasks, it is becoming increasingly attractive to use some form of event-based control instead, where precious events are used only when needed.

  3. 3. Piecewise Linear Control Systems

    Author : Mikael Johansson; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Piecewise quadratic functions; Linear matrix inequalities; Convex optimization; Optimal control; Performance analysis; Piecewise linear Lyapunov functions; Piecewise quadratic Lyapunov functions; Quadratic stability; Lyapunov stability; Piecewise linear systems; Nonlinear systems; Fuzzy systems; Hybrid systems.; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis treats analysis and design of piecewise linear control systems. Piecewise linear systems capture many of the most common nonlinearities in engineering systems, and they can also be used for approximation of other nonlinear systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Control of Systems with Limited Capacity

    Author : Stefan Solyom; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; voltage collapse; power systems; anti-windup; piecewise linear systems; synthesis; ABS; PID control; LMI; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Virtually all real life systems are such that they present some kind of limitation on one or many of its variables, physical quantities. These systems are designated in this thesis as systems with limited capacity. This work is treating control related problems of a subclass of such systems, where the limitation is a critical factor.

  5. 5. Input-Output Stability Analysis of Networked Control Systems

    Author : Johannes Nygren; Kristiaan Pelckmans; Torkel Glad; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Networked control systems; L2-stability; quantization; delay; packet dropouts; switching systems; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : The main focus of the thesis is to derive stability criteria for networked control system (NCS) models featuring imperfections such as time-varying and constant delays, quantization, packet dropouts, and non-uniform sampling intervals. The main method of proof is based on matrix algebra, as opposed to methods using Lyapunov functions or integral quadratic constraints (IQC). READ MORE
