  • Adiabatic Markov Decision Process: Convergence of Value Iteration
           Algorithm
    • Authors: Duong T; Nguyen-Huu D, Nguyen T.
      Abstract: Markov decision process (MDP) is a well-known framework for devising the optimal decision-making strategies under uncertainty. Typically, the decision maker assumes a stationary environment which is characterized by a time-invariant transition probability matrix. However, in many real-world scenarios, this assumption is not justified, thus the optimal strategy might not provide the expected performance. In this paper, we study the performance of the classic value iteration algorithm for solving an MDP problem under nonstationary environments. Specifically, the nonstationary environment is modeled as a sequence of time-variant transition probability matrices governed by an adiabatic evolution inspired from quantum mechanics. We characterize the performance of the value iteration algorithm subject to the rate of change of the underlying environment. The performance is measured in terms of the convergence rate to the optimal average reward. We show two examples of queuing systems that make use of our analysis framework.

  • Filter-Based Fault Diagnosis of Wind Energy Conversion Systems Subject to
           Sensor Faults
    • Authors: Zhang J; Xiong J, Ren M, et al.
      Abstract: The operational reliability of wind energy conversion systems (WECSs) has attracted a lot of attention recently. This paper is concerned with sensor fault detection (FD) and isolation problems for variable-speed WECSs by using a novel filtering method. A physical model of WECS with typical sensor faults is first built. Due to the non-Gaussianity of both wind speed and measurement noises in WECSs, an improved entropy optimization criterion is then established to design the filter for WECSs. Different from previous entropy-filtering results, the generalized density evolution equation (GDEE) is adopted to reveal the relationship among the estimation error, non-Gaussian noises, and the filter gain. The sensors FD and isolation algorithms are then obtained by evaluating the decision rule based on the residual signals generated by the filter. Finally, simulation results show that the sensor faults in WECSs can be detected and isolated effectively by using the proposed method.

  • Exponential Stabilization of a Class of Monodimensional Distributed
           Parameter Systems by Boundary Controller
    • Authors: Ivanescu M.
      Abstract: This paper treats the control problem of a class of monodimensional (1D) hyperbolic differential models with nonlinear components by using the boundary controller, the state measuring, and the control action on the boundary of the system. This controller is easy to implement from point of view of measuring techniques and actuation. The proposed algorithm provides the exponential convergence to the desired reference trajectory and rejects the effect of the nonlinear components by using the constraints in state space. A maximum principle of this class of system is inferred in order to evaluate the effect of boundary control. A constructive Lyapunov-based proof of convergence of the control algorithm is carried out. Numerical simulations of a technical model are presented.

  • Eigenstructure Assignment by Displacement–Acceleration Feedback for
           Second-Order Systems
    • Authors: Abdelaziz TS.
      Abstract: This paper presents a new technique for controlling the dynamic response of second-order systems by means of combined displacement and acceleration feedback. The necessary conditions that guarantee the solvability for the problem are formulated. Parametric expressions for the displacement–acceleration gains and the eigenvector matrix are derived. The solution can be applied for the systems with nonsingular or singular mass matrices. Based on the simulation results, we can conclude that the proposed technique is effective.

  • Actuator Constrained Motion Cueing Algorithm for a Redundantly Actuated
           Stewart Platform
    • Authors: Pradipta J; Sawodny O.
      Abstract: An improved method to provide a motion trajectory for full flight simulator to simulate the acceleration during a flight simulation is presented. The motion cueing trajectory is based on a constrained optimization problem, with the generated optimal acceleration cues subjected to the actuators travel constraints of the motion platform. The motion platform researched in this contribution is a redundantly actuated parallel manipulator, therefore the available workspace is more limited and the actuator constraints become more complex. The differential kinematic analysis is utilized in the optimization problem to define the relationship of the acceleration in the platform coordinate and in the actuator coordinates. An acceleration profile is defined in function of the actuator travel to create a strict acceleration constraint in the actuator coordinate, thus a strict travel constraint. The algorithm is tested in a simulation and implemented in a full size redundantly actuated motion platform. Measurement results show that the proposed new motion cueing algorithm (MCA) is able to keep the actuators within their travel limit and at the same time provide the correct motion cues for the simulator pilots. The need to tune the MCA for the worst case scenario which is necessary to avoid damage to the platform, while at the same time can be disadvantageous for the normal case use, is relieved by the utilization of the online optimization process.

  • Quantitative Feedback Input Shaping for Flexible-Joint Robot Manipulator
    • Authors: Chatlatanagulchai W; Kijdech D, Benjalersyarnon T, et al.
      Abstract: Input shaping technique has been applied to flexible-joint robot to suppress its residual vibration from fast point-to-point movement. Input shaping performance deteriorates when the knowledge of the mode parameters of the robot is not accurate. Several robust input shapers were proposed at the expense of longer move time. A novel input shaping system, consisting of a quantitative feedback controller, a feed-forward reference model, and a simple zero-vibration (ZV) input shaper, is proposed in this paper. Advantages over the existing robust input shapers include toleration of substantially larger amount of uncertainty in the mode parameters, shorter move time that does not increase with insensitivity, application to nonlinear and time-varying systems, and suppression of vibration induced by disturbance and noise.

  • A Modified Predictive Functional Control With Sliding Mode Observer for
           Automated Dry Clutch Control of Vehicle
    • Authors: Li L; Wang X, Hu X, et al.
      Abstract: Dry clutch control is a typical nonlinear problem due to the nonlinear characteristics of diaphragm springs. For precise position control of the automated dry clutch, a modified predictive functional control (mPFC) method is proposed. First, a novel mechanical actuator is designed and models of the automated dry clutch system are built based on theoretical analysis and experimental data. Then, in order to compensate for the position error of direct current (DC) motor caused by load torque, modifications are introduced to a regular predictive functional control (PFC), including a sliding mode observer (SMO) to estimate the load torque and a predictive model concerning the load torque. Next, simulations show that the SMO could estimate the load torque accurately and the mPFC performs well with the nonlinear load torque. Finally, experiments are carried out on a test bench and the results are in accordance with the simulations. Due to the little online computing burden and the simple structure of the mPFC, it could be used in other industrial control systems which need fast response.

  • Robust Distributed Model Predictive Control of Constrained Continuous-Time
           Nonlinear Systems Using Two-Layer Invariant Sets
    • Authors: Liu X; Shi Y, Constantinescu D.
      Abstract: This paper introduces a robust distributed model predictive control (DMPC) strategy for constrained continuous-time nonlinear systems coupled through their cost functions. In the proposed technique, all the subsystems receive the assumed control trajectories of their neighbors and compute their controls by optimizing local cost functions with coupling terms. Provided that the initial state is feasible and the disturbances are bounded, a two-layer invariant sets-based controller design ensures robustness while appropriate tuning of the design parameters guarantees recursive feasibility. This paper first derives sufficient conditions for the convergence of all the subsystem states to a robust positive invariant set. Then, it exploits the κ ∘ δ controllability set to propose a less conservative robust model predictive control (MPC) strategy that permits the adoption of a shorter prediction horizon and tolerates larger disturbances. A numerical example illustrates that the designed algorithm leads to stronger cooperation among subsystems compared to an existing robust DMPC technique.

  • Design and Experimental Verification of Position-Dependent Passive
           Electromagnetic Damping
    • Authors: Arif Aksekili A; Topaloglu N.
      Abstract: A linear dashpot is a common equipment used in shock and vibration isolation. It has been shown theoretically that the vibration isolation performance can be significantly improved by a damping profile that depends on the piston relative position. In this study, a position-dependent damping profile is realized by using electromagnetic principles. The idea is to have multiple coil windings on the outer cylinder and to use a magnet as a piston. The damping profile is tuned by changing the number of turns at each coil. As a result of the magnet-coil arrangement, the architecture also has the capability of being regenerative. A unique experimental setup is constructed that measures damping electrically in a multiple coil arrangement. Least-squares optimization method is used to tune the number of turns. It is shown that the coil turns can be successfully tailored to realize a desired damping profile. The position-dependent damping architecture has the potential to be used in future regenerative dampers.

  • Modeling of a Fast Plate Type Hydraulic Check Valve
    • Authors: Leati E; Gradl C, Scheidl R.
      Abstract: Check valve dynamics plays an important role in many fluid systems, such as in compressors, hydraulic pumps, and hydraulic switching converters. Plate type check valves are a frequently employed valve type in dynamically challenging cases. Despite the relevancy of plate valve dynamics, only few exhaustive works can be found in the literature, focusing on the behavior of hydraulic check valves for high-frequency applications. This paper presents an in-depth characterization of a plate valve designed as rectifier of a high-frequency oscillation pump working at 300 Hz. The aim is to identify a sufficiently simple mathematical model, which permits to optimize the design of the valve for the considered application. The paper analyses the different phenomena contributing to the dynamics of such a valve and presents the results of simulation and experimental activity. The results show how small details in the design and manufacturing of those valves (namely, the contact surfaces) have important consequences on the dynamics of the pump system. In general, a good agreement between model and reality is achieved.

  • Control-Oriented Model of Atkinson Cycle Engine With Variable Intake Valve
           Actuation
    • Authors: Murtaza GG; Bhatti AI, Ahmed QQ.
      Abstract: With the advancement in the innovated technologies, optimum efficiency of spark ignition (SI) engine can be accomplished during the entire engine operating range, particularly at part load. In this research, a novel control-oriented extended mean value engine model (EMVEM) of the Atkinson cycle engine is proposed, wherein the Atkinson cycle, variable valve timing (VVT), overexpansion, and variable compression ratio (VCR) characteristics are incorporated. For this purpose, an intake valve timing (IVT) parameter is introduced, which has a vital role in modeling the inclusive dynamics of the system and to deal with engine performance degrading aspects. The proposed model is validated with the experimental data of a VVT engine, obtained from literature, to ensure that the proposed model has the capability to capture the dynamics of the Atkinson cycle engine, and engine load can be controlled by IVT parameter, instead of the conventional throttle. The potential benefits of late intake valve closing (LIVC) tactic and copious integrated characteristics are appreciated as well. Furthermore, simulation results of the developed model primarily indicate the reduction in the engine part load losses and enhancement in thermal efficiency due to overexpansion, which has a great significance in the enhancement of the performance, fuel economy, and emissions reduction. Besides, the constraints on LIVC and overexpansion become evident.
