  • Design of a proportional integral observer based on sliding mode principle
           for uncertain Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy systems: applications to a turbo-reactor
           
    • Authors: Ilyes Elleuch, Atef Khedher, Kamel Ben Othman
      Pages: 179 - 194
      Abstract: This work deals with the problem of state and fault estimation for systems described by Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy systems. The state and fault estimation is made using a proportional integral observer based on the sliding mode principle. Only sensor faults are considered in this work. In order to estimate this kind of fault, a particulate mathematical transformation is used. The application of this mathematical transformation to the initial system output allows to conceive an augmented system where the initial sensor fault appears as an unknown input. An adaptive mathematical form is used for the sign function to facilitate the determination of the proportional gains of the conceived observer. The observer convergence conditions are formulated in the form of linear matrix inequalities (LMI) allowing computing the observer gains and the Lyapunov theory is used to guarantee the system stability with faults. The proposed proportional integral sliding mode observer is applied to turbo-reactor showing the efficiency of the fault and state estimation.

  • Sliding surface-based obstacle avoidance for second order
           multi-agent systems
    • Authors: Asma Essghaier, Lotfi Beji, Azgal Abichou
      Pages: 195 - 219
      Abstract: This paper studies formation keeping along with obstacle avoidance for second-order multi-agent systems. First, the flexible virtual structure (FVS) approach, used to model the communication topology between the agents of the formation, is recalled and relationship with graph theory-based communication exchange to achieve consensus is established. Second, using the regulation function (RF) which permits to change the behaviour of the system's solution without affecting convergence, obstacle avoidance is investigated for one agent (leader/co-leader) of the formation. Particularly, RF was used to ensure obstacle avoidance for first order agents and is extended in this work for second order agents. Relationship between the dynamic agent and a sliding surface with first order kinematics is established and condition on the sliding surface parameter is developed to ensure obstacle avoidance. Also, new shapes of the obstacle are considered namely square and rhombus. Finally, in order to perform a coordinated obstacle avoidance of a multi-agent system when only a subset of agents namely co-leaders, selected from the boarder, has obstacle information, one defines control laws which permit to control motions of the remaining formation agents.

  • Synchronisation control for ships in underway replenishment based on
           dynamic surface control
    • Authors: Yongchao Liu, Jialu Du, Xin Hu
      Pages: 220 - 236
      Abstract: In order to ensure safe underway replenishment operation between two ships, it is necessary to keep the distance and avoid collision between the supply and the supplied ships. A virtual trajectory locating on one side of the supplied ship with a relatively fixed distance from the trajectory of the main ship is introduced. A nonlinear synchronisation control law is developed for the supply ship in the underway replenishment under environmental disturbances incorporating a robust term based on signum function into the dynamic surface control (DSC) technique. It is proved that the designed synchronisation control law can force the supply ship to track the virtual trajectory with arbitrarily small errors, while guaranteeing that all signals in the synchronisation closed-loop control system are uniformly ultimately bounded so that synchronisation motion control is realised between two ships. Simulation results on a supply ship illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed synchronisation control law.

  • Fuzzy sliding mode control for three-tank system based on linear
           matrix inequality
    • Authors: El Mehdi Mellouli, Mohammed Alfidi, Ismail Boumhidi
      Pages: 237 - 250
      Abstract: A novel method-based fuzzy sliding mode (FSM) and linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach is presented in this paper to design a new robust adaptive fuzzy controller for a perturbed multi-input multi-output (MIMO) three-tank system with unknown dynamics and without chattering problem that is produced by the traditional sliding mode control. The proposed method uses the adaptive fuzzy system Takagi-Sugeno (TS) to approximate the unknown dynamics model of the three-tank system which is considered a very complicated system due to the high nonlinearity and cross coupling. Moreover, to overcome the external disturbance and the fuzzy approximation errors due to the modelling system, an auxiliary control term-based sliding mode is incorporated in the control law. Linear matrix inequality is used to determine the parameters of the dynamic compensator which is added to improve more performance of the closed-loop system in the sliding mode. The stability and robustness of the proposed method are proved, and the simulation is given to demonstrate the tracking performance of the proposed approach.

      Abstract: In this paper, a new adaptive iterative learning control scheme is proposed to deal with nonlinearly parameterised strict feedback systems under alignment condition in the presence of input saturation constraint. The learning controller is designed by using the command filtered adaptive backstepping design procedure. The nonlinearly connected parameters are separated from the local Lipschitz continuous nonlinear functions and then learning laws are designed in iteration domain. To overcome the problem of input saturation, an auxiliary system is constructed with the same order as that of the systems under consideration. It is proved that the proposed control scheme can guarantee that all signals of the resulting closed-loop system remain bounded, and the tracking error converges to zero as the iteration number goes to infinity. A simulation example is included to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

      Abstract: This study presents a strategy of fault tolerant control (FTC) to keep the vector controlled induction motor (IM). The aim is to minimise the effect of the sensor fault and the parametric uncertainties. Firstly, a fuzzy proportional multiple integral observer (PMIO) is used to estimate simultaneously the system state and the sensor fault. Secondly, a feedback robust state tracking control is synthesised to guarantee the control performances. The proposed controller is based on a T-S reference model to specify the desired trajectory. The performances of the trajectory tracking are analysed using the Lyapunov theory and the <i>L</i><SUB align="right">2 optimisation. The gains of the observer and controller are obtained by solving a set of LMIs constraint. Finally, simulation results are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.

      Abstract: In this article, a bacterial foraging optimisation algorithm (BFOA)-based proportional integral derivative controller with derivative filter (PIDF) is proposed for frequency regulation of multi source hybrid power system. Initially, a two area, unequal area power system with PIDF controllers, are considered. The area 1 comprises of reheat thermal power system incorporated with distributed generation (DG) system comprising of wind turbine generators (WTGs), diesel engine generators (DEGs), fuel cells (FCs), aqua-electrolyser (AE), ultra capacitor (UC) and battery energy storage system (BESS). The area 2 comprises of hydrothermal power system. The gains of the PID controller with derivative filter are optimised by using integral time multiply absolute error (ITAE) criterion. The superiority of PIDF controller is demonstrated by comparing the dynamic responses with integral derivative (ID) and proportional integral (PI) controllers. The simulation results show that the performance of dynamic responses with PIDF controller is superior to others. Further, robustness analysis is performed by varying the system parameters and wind power variations. It is observed from the simulation results that the optimum gains of the proposed controller need not be reset even if the system is subjected to wide variation in loading condition and system parameters.
