报告题目：Modeling and Control of Hysteretic Nonlinear Systems
内容简介：Hysteresis nonlinearities are very common in magnetic materials, smart materials and industrial systems. For decades, the existence of such nonlinearities has provided one of the most difficult challenges to control design engineers since the entire Laplace domain and most state space control design techniques were developed exclusively for differentiable linear or nonlinear systems. Hence, the controllers were designed where the existence of hysteresis nonlinearities in practical systems were neglected. When the systems are considered with Hysteresis (non-differentiable) nonlinearities, these methods encountered substantial difficulties in the analysis, model fitting and control design stages. It was extremely difficult, if not impossible, to design or prove stability of such systems. The development of techniques for the identification of such nonlinearities in realistic industrial plants has emerged as a significant problem in itself.
This talk is intended to raise awareness of modeling and control techniques and to provide an opportunity to discuss state-of-the-art solutions for the problems. The presentation and discussion will range from modeling of hysteresis, to the design of corresponding control schemes, especially in the absence of complete information concerning the system model and state. The talk is designed to appeal to an audience from different backgrounds. People working in the area of control will have a chance to interchange ideas and to view problems from different perspectives. People working in other areas will also benefit by understanding the new methods and technologies developed for control’s point of view.
