  • A review on damping of torsional interactions using VSC based FACTS and
           subsynchronous damping controller
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 August 2018Source: Annual Reviews in ControlAuthor(s): S. Venkateswarlu, M. Janaki, R. Thirumalaivasan, Nagesh PrabhuAbstractImprovement in the power transfer capability and the system stability of long transmission lines by series compensation is a cost-effective solution. However, the Subsynchronous Resonance (SSR) due to series compensation leads to severe risk of Torsional Interactions (TI). This paper presents, a review on damping of torsional interactions using Voltage Source Converter (VSC) based FACTS with various Subsynchronous Damping Controllers (SSDC) proposed in the literature. This review can help researchers to make a comparative study of the impact of FACTS devices and various subsynchronous damping controllers on damping of subsynchronous oscillations.
  • Current advancements on autonomous mission planning and management
           systems: An AUV and UAV perspective
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 August 2018Source: Annual Reviews in ControlAuthor(s): Adham Atyabi, Somaiyeh MahmoudZadeh, Samia Nefti-MezianiAbstractAdvances in hardware technology have enabled more integration of sophisticated software, triggering progresses in development and employment of Unmanned Vehicles (UVs), and mitigating restraints for onboard intelligence. As a result, UVs can now take part in more complex mission where continuous transformation in environmental condition calls for higher level of situational responsiveness. This paper serves as an introduction to UVs mission planning and management systems aiming to highlight some of the recent developments in the field of autonomous underwater and aerial vehicles in addition to stressing some possible future directions and discussing the learned lessons. A comprehensive survey over autonomy assessment of UVs, and different aspects of autonomy such as situation awareness, cognition, and decision-making has been provided in this study. The paper separately explains the humanoid and autonomous system's performance and highlights the role and impact of a human in UVs operations.
  • Dealing with observational data in control
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 29 May 2018Source: Annual Reviews in ControlAuthor(s): Emma D. Wilson, Quentin Clairon, Robin Henderson, C. James TaylorAbstractThere is growing interest in the use of control theory for interdisciplinary applications, where data may be sparse or missing, be non-uniformly sampled, have greater uncertainty, and where there is no opportunity to collect repeat measurements. In such applications, problems posed by observational data and the issue of missing or irregular data need to be considered. We present a review on dealing with observational, missing and irregular data for control applications. This considers the following issues: (i) how to identify a system model from observational data subject to missing measurements, (ii) how to determine control inputs when output data includes missing measurements, and (iii) how to ensure stability when future update times may be missed. Dealing with observational data and missing measurements is a key problem within the statistics literature, so we introduce statistical methods for dealing with this type of data. We aim to enable the integration of well-developed statistical methods of dealing with missing data into control theory. An example problem of using anticoagulants to control the blood clotting speed of patients is used throughout the paper.
  • Perturbation analysis: A framework for data-driven control and
           optimization of discrete event and hybrid systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Y. Wardi, C.G. Cassandras, X.R. CaoAbstractThe history of Perturbation Analysis (PA) is intimately related to that of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems (DEDS), starting with a solution of a long-standing problem in the late 1970s and continuing today with the control and optimization of Hybrid Systems and the emergence of event-driven control methods. We review the origins of the PA theory and how it became part of a broader framework for modelling, control and optimization of DEDS. We then discuss the theoretical underpinnings of Infinitesimal Perturbation Analysis (IPA) as a data-driven stochastic gradient estimation method and how it has been applied over the past few decades. We explain how IPA offers a basis for general-purpose stochastic optimization of Markovian systems through the notion of the performance potential and how it has evolved beyond DEDS and now provides a framework for control and optimization of Hybrid Systems and, more generally, event-driven methodologies.
  • Max-plus algebra in the history of discrete event systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): J. Komenda, S. Lahaye, J.-L. Boimond, T. van den BoomAbstractThis paper is a survey of the history of max-plus algebra and its role in the field of discrete event systems during the last three decades. It is based on the perspective of the authors but it covers a large variety of topics, where max-plus algebra plays a key role.
  • Petri nets and Automatic Control: A historical perspective
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Alessandro Giua, Manuel SilvaAbstractThe goal of this paper is to overview the historical development of the field of Petri nets (PNs) from a Systems Theory and Automatic Control perspective. It is intentionally not meant to be comprehensive: we limit ourselves to outline, through selected representative topics, some of the conceptual issues studied in the literature. In a first part we retrace the emergence of some basic net concepts to provide a broad view of the family of PN formalisms. Then we focus, more specifically, on the use of Petri nets within Automatic Control. Discrete net models have been considered since the middle of the 70s and starting since the late 80s have also been used for addressing classical problems, such as supervisory and deadlock control, state estimation, diagnosis, and so on. The double benefit is the ability to model a larger class of systems and to provide efficient algorithms for solving certain of those problems. We also discuss new approaches based on continuous and hybrid nets, which have been developed within the Automatic Control community.
  • On the history of Discrete Event Systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Manuel SilvaAbstractThe purpose of this article is to provide a viewpoint of the development of the field of Discrete Event Systems (DES). Necessarily incomplete, because of the breath of topics and richness of research results, this paper is mainly presented from a System Theory-Automatic Control (AC) perspective. Written with a certain emphasis at the dawn of the discipline, the following five articles of this special section of the journal provide essential complements on its evolution along the four last decades. Starting with the identification of three basic threads along which many developments took place, the multidisciplinary and dynamic character of DES and the diversity of formalisms and techniques that are used are stressed.

    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Tryphon T. GeorgiouAbstractThe present paper is a tribute to Professor Rudolf Emil Kalman, father of Mathematical System Theory and a towering figure in the field of Control and Dynamical Systems. Amongst his seminal contributions was a series of results and insights into the role of positivity in System Theory and in Control Engineering. The paper contains a collection of reminiscences by the author together with brief technical references that touch upon the unparalleled influence of Professor Kalman on this topic.
  • A framework for receding-horizon control in infinite-horizon aggregative
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Filiberto Fele, Antonio De Paola, David Angeli, Goran StrbacAbstractA novel modelling framework is proposed for the analysis of aggregative games on an infinite-time horizon, assuming that players are subject to heterogeneous periodic constraints. A new aggregative equilibrium notion is presented and the strategic behaviour of the agents is analysed under a receding horizon paradigm. The evolution of the strategies predicted and implemented by the players over time is modelled through a discrete-time multi-valued dynamical system. By considering Lyapunov stability notions and applying limit and invariance results for set-valued correspondences, necessary conditions are derived for convergence of a receding horizon map to a periodic equilibrium of the aggregative game. This result is achieved for any (feasible) initial condition, thus ensuring implicit adaptivity of the proposed control framework to real-time variations in the number and parameters of players. Design and implementation of the proposed control strategy are discussed and an example of distributed control for data routing is presented, evaluating its performance in simulation.
  • Comparative performances of synchronisation between different classes of
           chaotic systems using three control techniques
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): P.P. Singh, B.K. RoyAbstractThis paper puts forward the comparative performances for synchronisation between (i) systems from different chaotic system families, (ii) systems from the Unified Chaotic System (UCS) family, (iii) a hyperchaotic and a chaotic systems and (iv) identical chaotic systems. Three different well-known control techniques, i.e. Nonlinear Active Control (NAC), Sliding Mode Control (SMC) and Adaptive Control (AC) are used for synchronisation between various pairs of chaotic and/or hyperchaotic systems. Performances of NAC, SMC and AC techniques are investigated and compared with synchronisation of different pairs of chaotic systems based on the error dynamics and required control inputs. The integral square error and required control energy measures are considered for comparison. Finally, a generalised view on the use of the control techniques for synchronisation is finally proposed. Moreover, a new chaotic system is proposed and its qualitative analysis is done to illustrate the chaotic behaviour of the system. The new system is used as an example of synchronisation. MATLAB simulation results are presented which reflect the successful achievement of the objectives.
  • Microgrid control: A comprehensive survey
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Sachidananda Sen, Vishal KumarAbstractPresent researches in power and energy fraternity are driven towards the realization of smart grid (SG) technologies. Microgrids (MGs) being regarded as “elementary units” of SG, has undergone rigorous research for more than one and a half decade now. It provides an integration platform for microsources (MSs), loads, storage devices and power electronics (PE) converters at demand premises forming a system of systems i.e. SoSs architecture. MGs mostly operated in grid-tied mode but during an emergency, are capable of standalone operation. Stability and operational control during both the modes are of utmost concern. Involvement of several control functionalities viz. normalcy of voltage and frequency, optimal power sharing, islanding detection etc., had been adhered in the literature. In spite of that, the real world implementation has not been of significant extent, that too even is far from having ideal MG characteristics, eligible for commercial usage. These technical obstacles need to be identified and dealt with. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of different control aspects of MGs, broadly classified under four control strategies: centralized, decentralized, distributed and hierarchical frameworks. Each scheme is reviewed in detail w.r.t the principles behind, their applicability and performances. It also identifies several research gaps and future trends therein. The technical barriers for real scale application and their solutions are also briefly discussed. And finally, a discussion on different integrated technologies for MGs, to realize SG features is also presented.
  • Stochastic model predictive control with active uncertainty learning: A
           Survey on dual control
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Ali MesbahAbstractThis paper provides a review of model predictive control (MPC) methods with active uncertainty learning. System uncertainty poses a key theoretical and practical challenge in MPC, which can be aggravated when system uncertainty increases due to the time-varying nature of system dynamics. For uncertain systems with stochastic uncertainty, this paper presents the stochastic MPC (SMPC) problem in the dual control paradigm, where the control inputs to an uncertain system have a probing effect for active uncertainty learning and a directing effect for controlling the system dynamics. The complexity of the SMPC problem with dual control effect is described in connection to stochastic dynamic programming as well as Bayesian estimation for its output feedback implementation. Further, implicit and explicit dual control methods for approximating the receding-horizon control problem with dual control effect are surveyed and analyzed with the intent to discuss the key challenges and opportunities in SMPC with dual control effect.
  • A survey on the analysis and control of evolutionary matrix games

  • Trajectory planning and tracking for autonomous overtaking:
           State-of-the-art and future prospects
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Shilp Dixit, Saber Fallah, Umberto Montanaro, Mehrdad Dianati, Alan Stevens, Francis Mccullough, Alexandros MouzakitisAbstractTrajectory planning and trajectory tracking constitute two important functions of an autonomous overtaking system and a variety of strategies have been proposed in the literature for both functionalities. However, uncertainties in environment perception using the current generation of sensors has resulted in most proposed methods being applicable only during low-speed overtaking. In this paper, trajectory planning and trajectory tracking approaches for autonomous overtaking systems are reviewed. The trajectory planning techniques are compared based on aspects such as real-time implementation, computational requirements, and feasibility in real-world scenarios. This review shows that two important aspects of trajectory planning for high-speed overtaking are: (i) inclusion of vehicle dynamics and environmental constraints and (ii) accurate knowledge of the environment and surrounding obstacles. The review of trajectory tracking controllers for high-speed driving is based on different categories of control algorithms where their respective advantages and disadvantages are analysed. This study shows that while advanced control methods improve tracking performance, in most cases the results are valid only within well-regulated conditions. Therefore, existing autonomous overtaking solutions assume precise knowledge of surrounding environment which is not representative of real-world driving. The paper also discusses how in a connected driving environment, vehicles can access additional information that can expand their perception. Hence, the potential of cooperative information sharing for aiding autonomous high-speed overtaking manoeuvre is identified as a possible solution.
  • Multi-layered interactive energy space modeling for near-optimal
           electrification of terrestrial, shipboard and aircraft systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Marija D. Ilić, Rupamathi JaddivadaAbstractIn this paper, we introduce a basic multi-layered modeling framework for posing the problem of safe, robust and efficient design and control that may lend itself to ripping potential benefits from electrification. The proposed framework establishes dynamic relations between physical concepts such as stored energy, useful work, and wasted energy, on one hand; and modeling, simulation, and control of interactive modular complex dynamical systems, on the other. In particular, our recently introduced energy state-space modeling approach for electric energy systems is further interpreted using fundamental laws of physics in multi-physical systems, such as terrestrial energy-systems, aircrafts and ships. The interconnected systems are modeled as dynamically interacting modules. This approach is shown to be particularly well-suited for scalable optimization of large-scale complex systems. Instead of having to use simpler models, the proposed multi-layered modeling of system dynamics in energy space offers a promising basic method for modeling and controlling inter-dependencies across multi-physics subsystems for both ensuring feasible and near-optimal operation. It is illustrated how this approach can be used for understanding fundamental physical causes of inefficiencies created either at the component level or are a result of poor matching of their interactions.

  • Control of connected and automated vehicles: State of the art and future
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Jacopo Guanetti, Yeojun Kim, Francesco BorrelliAbstractAutonomous driving technology pledges safety, convenience, and energy efficiency. Its challenges include the unknown intentions of other road users: communication between vehicles and with the road infrastructure is a possible approach to enhance awareness and enable cooperation. Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) have the potential to disrupt mobility, extending what is possible with driving automation and connectivity alone. Applications include real-time control and planning with increased awareness, routing with micro-scale traffic information, coordinated platooning using traffic signals information, and eco-mobility on demand with guaranteed parking. This paper introduces a control and planning architecture for CAVs, and surveys the state of the art on each functional block therein; the main focus is on techniques to improve energy efficiency. We provide an overview of existing algorithms and their mutual interactions, we present promising optimization-based approaches to CAVs control and identify future challenges.

    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Domitilla Del Vecchio, Yili Qian, Richard M. Murray, Eduardo D. SontagAbstractSynthetic biology is the application of engineering principles to the fundamental components of biology, with the aim of creating systems with novel functionalities that can be used for energy, environment, and medical applications. While the potential impact of this new technology is enormous, there are challenges that we need to overcome before the impact of synthetic biology can be fully realized. Many of these challenges fall beyond the scope of molecular biology and are indeed “system-level” problems, where very little research is being performed. This paper identifies pressing challenges in synthetic biology that can be formulated as systems and control theoretic problems and outlines potentially new systems and control theories/tools that are required to tackle such problems. The aim is to attract more systems and control theorists to collaborate with molecular biologists and biophysicists and help synthetic biology reach its promise. At the same time, engaging the systems and control community more broadly into the rich research opportunities and life-changing applications of synthetic biology may provide added visibility to the field of systems and controls.

  • On the history of diagnosability and opacity in discrete event systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Annual Reviews in Control, Volume 45Author(s): Stéphane Lafortune, Feng Lin, Christoforos N. HadjicostisAbstractThis paper presents historical remarks on key projects and papers that led to the development of a theory of event diagnosis for discrete event systems modeled by finite-state automata or Petri nets in the 1990s. The goal in event diagnosis is to develop algorithmic procedures for deducing the occurrence of unobservable events, based on a formal model of the system and on-line observations of its behavior. It also presents historical remarks on the early works on the property of opacity, which occurred about ten years later. Opacity can be seen as a strong version of lack of diagnosability and it has been used to capture security and privacy requirements. Finally, diagnosability is connected with the property of observability that arises in supervisory control. This paper is part of set of papers that review the emergence of discrete event systems as an area of research in control engineering.
