  1. 1. Relay Feedback and Multivariable Control

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Karl Henrik Johansson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; robotics; Automation; Frequency methods; Process control; Sequential control; Automatic tuning; Control education; Laboratory process; Performance limitations; Decentralized control; Multivariable zero; Multivariable systems; Hybrid control; Nonlinear dynamics; Limit cycles; Oscillations; Relay feedback; Sliding modes; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis treats three issues in control engineering related to relay feedback and multivariable control systems. Linear systems with relay feedback is the first topic. Such systems are shown to exhibit several interesting behaviors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis and Design of Hybrid Control Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Jörgen Malmborg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : 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

  3. 3. Stochastic Event-Based Control and Estimation

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Toivo Henningsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : 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.

  4. 4. Piecewise Linear Control Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Mikael Johansson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. Modeling, Control and Optimization of a Plate Reactor

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Staffan Haugwitz; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mid-ranging control; transition control; start-up; exothermic reaction; chemical reactor; modeling; process control; optimization; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : A new chemical reactor, the Alfa Laval Plate Reactor, is being developed by Alfa Laval, a Swedish world-leading heat exchanger company. The plate reactor combines the high-heat-transfer capabilities of plate heat exchangers with the efficient mixing and reaction control typical of microreactors. READ MORE
