  1. 1. Control and Estimation of Automotive Powertrains with Backlash

    Author : Adam Lagerberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; backlash control; powertrain control; driveability; backlash estimation; model predictive control; optimal control; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : In automotive powertrains, backlash causes problems with vehicle driveability, specifically at so called tip-in and tip-out maneuvers. These maneuvers may trigger phenomena known in the automotive industry as shunt and shuffle, which are partially caused by the backlash. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimal Decisions with Limited Information

    Author : Ather Gattami; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; systems; numerical analysis; Computer science; Convex Optimization; Graph Theory; Team Decision Theory; Game Theory; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis considers static and dynamic team decision problems in both stochastic and deterministic settings. The team problem is a cooperative game, where a number of players make up a team that tries to optimize a given cost induced by the uncertainty of nature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis and Design of Hybrid Control Systems

    Author : Jörgen Malmborg; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lyapunov theory; Mode switching; Multi-controllers; PID control; Simulation; Higher order sliding; Hybrid control; Sliding modes; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Different aspects of hybrid control systems are treated: analysis, simulation, design and implementation. A systematic methodology using extended Lyapunov theory for design of hybrid systems is developed. The methodology is based on conventional control designs in separate regions together with a switching strategy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Look-ahead Control of Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Erik Hellström; Lars Nielsen; Jan Åslund; Lino Guzzella; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; automotive control; dynamic programming; predictive control; fuel-optimal control; long haulage truck; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Trucks are responsible for the major part of inland freight and so, they are a backbone of the modern economy but they are also a large consumer of energy. In this context, a dominating vehicle is a truck with heavy load on a long trip. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fighter Aircraft Maneuver Limiting Using MPC : Theory and Application

    Author : Daniel Simon; Johan Löfberg; Torkel Glad; Jan Maciejowski; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Model predictive control; flight control;

    Abstract : Flight control design for modern fighter aircraft is a challenging task. Aircraft are dynamical systems, which naturally contain a variety of constraints and nonlinearities such as, e.g., maximum permissible load factor, angle of attack and control surface deflections. READ MORE
