    Oveisi, Atta; Nestorović, Tamara

    2016-08-01

    In this paper, a new observer-based adaptive fuzzy integral sliding mode controller is proposed based on the Lyapunov stability theorem. The plant is subjected to a square-integrable disturbance and is assumed to have mismatch uncertainties both in state- and input-matrices. Based on the classical sliding mode controller, the equivalent control effort is obtained to satisfy the sufficient requirement of sliding mode controller and then the control law is modified to guarantee the reachability of the system trajectory to the sliding manifold. In order to relax the norm-bounded constrains on the control law and solve the chattering problem of sliding mode controller, a fuzzy logic inference mechanism is combined with the controller. An adaptive law is then introduced to tune the parameters of the fuzzy system on-line. Finally, for evaluating the controller and the robust performance of the closed-loop system, the proposed regulator is implemented on a real-time mechanical vibrating system.

    Thenozhi, Suresh; Yu, Wen

    2016-04-01

    Although fuzzy/adaptive sliding mode control can reduce the chattering problem in structural vibration control applications, they require the equivalent control and the upper bounds of the system uncertainties. In this paper, we used fuzzy logic to approximate the standard sliding surface and designed a dead-zone adaptive law for tuning the switching gain of the sliding mode control. The stability of the proposed controller is established using Lyapunov stability theory. A six-storey building prototype equipped with an active mass damper has been used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed controller towards the wind-induced vibrations.

  7. L1 adaptive control with sliding-mode based adaptive law

    Jie LUO; Chengyu CAO

    2015-01-01

    This paper presents an adaptive control scheme with an integration of sliding mode control into the L1 adaptive control architecture, which provides good tracking performance as well as robustness against matched uncertainties. Sliding mode control is used as an adaptive law in the L1 adaptive control architecture, which is considered as a virtual control of error dynamics between estimated states and real states. Low-pass filtering mechanism in the control law design prevents a discontinuous signal in the adaptive law from appearing in actual control signal while maintaining control accuracy. By using sliding mode control as a virtual control of error dynamics and introducing the low-pass filtered control signal, the chattering effect is eliminated. The performance bounds between the close-loop adaptive system and the closed-loop reference system are characterized in this paper. Numerical simulation is provided to demonstrate the performance of the presented adaptive control scheme.

    Full Text Available An adaptive global sliding mode control (AGSMC using RBF neural network (RBFNN is proposed for the system identification and tracking control of micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS gyroscope. Firstly, a new kind of adaptive identification method based on the global sliding mode controller is designed to update and estimate angular velocity and other system parameters of MEMS gyroscope online. Moreover, the output of adaptive neural network control is used to adjust the switch gain of sliding mode control dynamically to approach the upper bound of unknown disturbances. In this way, the switch item of sliding mode control can be converted to the output of continuous neural network which can weaken the chattering in the sliding mode control in contrast to the conventional fixed gain sliding mode control. Simulation results show that the designed control system can get satisfactory tracking performance and effective estimation of unknown parameters of MEMS gyroscope.

  9. Chattering-free fuzzy adaptive robust sliding-mode vibration control of a smart flexible beam

    Chattering is an undesired phenomenon associated with classical sliding-mode control. The discontinuous bang–bang robust controller causes chattering near the equilibrium. To attenuate the chattering, in this paper, a fuzzy logic smooth switch system is integrated with the adaptive robust sliding-mode control to form a fuzzy adaptive robust sliding-mode control for the active vibration control of a smart flexible beam integrated with piezoceramic actuators and sensors. The asymptotical stability proof of the proposed fuzzy adaptive robust sliding-mode controller is provided by Lyapunov's direct method. The experimental results show that the proposed fuzzy adaptive robust sliding-mode controller quickly suppresses the vibration. Additionally, with the fuzzy switch system, the chattering is successfully attenuated

Using this adaptation technique to estimate the upper-bounds of parameter variation and external disturbance uncertainties, an adaptive sliding mode controller is then constructed without requiring the bounds of parameter and disturbance uncertainties to be known in advance. It is proven that the proposed adaptive sliding mode controller can maintain the existence of sliding mode in finite time in uncertain chaotic systems. Finally, numerical simulations are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.

    Farzin Piltan, N. Sulaiman, Payman Ferdosali, Mehdi Rashidi, Zahra Tajpeikar

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available This research is focused on proposed adaptive fuzzy sliding mode algorithms with the adaptation lawsderived in the Lyapunov sense. The stability of the closed-loop system is proved mathematically based onthe Lyapunov method. Adaptive MIMO fuzzy compensate fuzzy sliding mode method design a MIMO fuzzysystem to compensate for the model uncertainties of the system, and chattering also solved by linearsaturation method. Since there is no tuning method to adjust the premise part of fuzzy rules so wepresented a scheme to online tune consequence part of fuzzy rules. Classical sliding mode control isrobust to control model uncertainties and external disturbances. A sliding mode method with a switchingcontrol low guarantees the stability of the certain and/or uncertain system, but the addition of the switchingcontrol low introduces chattering into the system. One way to reduce or eliminate chattering is to insert aboundary layer method inside of a boundary layer around the sliding surface. Classical sliding modecontrol method has difficulty in handling unstructured model uncertainties. One can overcome this problemby combining a sliding mode controller and artificial intelligence (e.g. fuzzy logic. To approximate a timevaryingnonlinear dynamic system, a fuzzy system requires a large amount of fuzzy rule base. This largenumber of fuzzy rules will cause a high computation load. The addition of an adaptive law to a fuzzy slidingmode controller to online tune the parameters of the fuzzy rules in use will ensure a moderatecomputational load. The adaptive laws in this algorithm are designed based on the Lyapunov stabilitytheorem. Asymptotic stability of the closed loop system is also proved in the sense of Lyapunov.

Finally, a well-known Duffing-Holmes chaotic system is used as an illustrative to show the effectiveness of the proposed robust adaptive PID controller

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this paper is to design a suitable control scheme that confronts the uncertainties in a robot. Sliding mode controller (SMC is one of the most important and powerful nonlinear robust controllers which has been applied to many non-linear systems. However, this controller has some intrinsic drawbacks, namely, the chattering phenomenon, equivalent dynamic formulation, and sensitivity to the noise. This paper focuses on applying artificial intelligence integrated with the sliding mode control theory.

    2006-11-01

    Because of nonlinearity and strong coupling of reaction-jet and aerodynamics compound control missile, a missile autopilot design method based on adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control (AFSMC) is proposed in this paper. The universal approximation ability of adaptive fuzzy system is used to approximate the nonlinear function in missile dynamics equation during the flight of high angle of attack. And because the sliding mode control is robustness to external disturbance strongly, the sliding mode surface of the error system is constructed to overcome the influence of approximation error and external disturbance so that the actual overload can track the maneuvering command with high precision. Simulation results show that the missile autopilot designed in this paper not only can track large overload command with higher precision than traditional method, but also is robust to model uncertainty and external disturbance strongly.

    庄开宇; 苏宏业; 张克勤; 褚健

    2003-01-01

    An adaptive terminal sliding mode control (SMC) technique is proposed to deal with the tracking problem for a class of high-order nonlinear dynamic systems. It is shown that a function augmented sliding hyperplane can be used to develop a new terminal sliding mode for high-order nonlinear systems. A terminal SMC controller based on Lyapunov theory is designed to force the state variables of the closed-loop system to reach and remain on the terminal sliding mode, so that the output tracking error then converges to zero in finite time which can be set arbitrarily. An adaptive mechanism is introduced to estimate the unknown parameters of the upper bounds of system uncertainties. The estimates are then used as controller parameters so that the effects of uncertain dynamics can be eliminated. It is also shown that the stability of the closed-loop system can be guaranteed with the proposed control strategy. The simulation of a numerical example is provided to show the effectiveness of the new method.

    Full Text Available A structure mode of virtual compound-axis servo system is proposed to improve the tracking accuracy of the ordinary optoelectric tracking platform. It is based on the structure and principles of compound-axis servo system. A hybrid position control scheme combining the PD controller and feed-forward controller is used in subsystem to track the tracking error of the main system.

  13. Composite Adaptive Sliding Mode Control for Electrical Servo System using Multiple Models

    Lipeng Wang

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available In this study, a composite adaptive sliding mode control using Multiple Models (MM-CASMC is proposed for precision position control of an induction motor servo system with parametric uncertainties and external disturbance. The MM-CASMC is designed based on a classical sliding mode control frame. Robustness against parametric uncertainties and high-frequency extern disturbance are both obtained via online parameters estimation and switching control, respectively. A composite adaption law which combines direct and BGF-LS type indirect adaptive methods is developed to achieve both Globally Uniformly Ultimately Boundness (GUUB and approximately exponential convergence in large range under persistent excitation, the later implies clearer transient behaviour which is of great importance but not provided by standard direct adaptive method. Moreover, a multiple model adaptive control design is further incorporated to achieve improvement in transient response by utilizing model switching and parameters estimates resetting and an noval method by means of dual-channel filtering is proposed for regessor filtering and model switching. For the proposed strategy, the GUUB stability and improvments in transient behaviour and adaptability to sudden changes in the parameter values are all proved in Lyapunov sense. Simulation results verify that an induction motor servo system with the adoption of MM-CASMC can achieve favorable tracking performance and transient response in the presence of parameter variations and external load disturbance.

  14. Adaptive PI-Based Sliding Mode Control for Nanopositioning of Piezoelectric Actuators

    Jin Li

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes an adaptive proportion-integral (PI-based sliding mode control design (APISMC used for nanopositioning of piezoelectric actuators (PEAs. Nonlinearities, mainly hysteresis, can drastically degrade the system performance. As well as the model imperfection, hysteresis can be treated as uncertainties of the system. These uncertainties can be addressed by sliding mode control (SMC since SMC is promising for positioning and tracking control. To further improve the response speed, suppress chattering, and reduce the steady-state error, the adaptive PI-based SMC is employed to replace the discontinuous control. Actually, the adaptive PI-based SMC offers a fast convergence of the sliding surface. Further, another advantage of the proposed controller lies in that its implementation only requires the online tuning PI parameters without acquiring the knowledge of bounds on system uncertainties. A linear second-order system is utilized as the estimated model to compensate for the process nonlinearity and estimate the control gain. The robust stability of the APISMC is proved through a Lyapunov stability analysis. Simulation results demonstrate that the modified SMC is superior to the original one for both positioning and tracking applications. Compared with the original, the proposed controller provides better performance—less chattering, faster response, and higher precision.

    2007-04-15

    This paper presents an original method for the design of a robust adaptive sliding mode current and flux observer for induction motor drive using two-time-scale approach. This approach, based on the singular perturbation theory, decomposes the original system of the observer error dynamics into separate slow and fast subsystems of lower dimensions and permits a simple design and sequential determination of the observer gains. For the proposed observer, the rotor speed signal is assumed to be available. The stator currents and rotor flux are observed on the stationary reference frame using sliding mode concept, and the adaptive rotor time-constant is derived from Lyapunov stability theory using measured and estimated currents and estimated rotor flux. The control algorithm is based on the indirect field-oriented sliding mode control to keep the machine field oriented. The control-observer scheme seeks to provide asymptotic tracking of speed and rotor flux in spite of the presence of an uncertain load torque and unknown value of the rotor resistance. The effectiveness of this control algorithm has been successfully verified through computer simulations. (author)

    2016-01-01

    For the terminal guidance problem of missiles intercepting maneuvering targets in the three-dimensional space, the design of guidance laws for non-decoupling three-dimensional engage-ment geometry is studied. Firstly, by introducing a finite time integral sliding mode manifold, a novel guidance law based on the integral sliding mode control is presented with the target acceler-ation as a known bounded external disturbance. Then, an improved adaptive guidance law based on the integral sliding mode control without the information of the upper bound on the target accel-eration is developed, where the upper bound of the target acceleration is estimated online by a designed adaptive law. The both presented guidance laws can make sure that the elevation angular rate of the line-of-sight and the azimuth angular rate of the line-of-sight converge to zero in finite time. In the end, the results of the guidance performance for the proposed guidance laws are pre-sented by numerical simulations. Although the designed guidance laws are developed for the con-stant speed missiles, the simulation results for the time-varying speed missiles are also shown to further confirm the designed guidance laws.

    Full Text Available The depth tracking issue of underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV in vertical plane is addressed in this paper. Considering the complicated dynamics and kinematics model for underactuated AUV, a more simplified model is obtained based on assumptions.

The stability of control system is proven to be guaranteed according to Lyapunov theory. In the end, simulation results imply that the proposed controller owns strong robustness and satisfied control effectiveness in comparison with the traditional controller.

    Kaijia Xue

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV is a nonlinear dynamic system with uncertainties and noises. Therefore, an appropriate control system has an obligation to ensure the stabilization and navigation of UAV. This paper mainly discusses the control problem of quad-rotor UAV system, which is influenced by unknown parameters and noises. Besides, a sliding mode control based on online adaptive error compensation support vector machine (SVM is proposed for stabilizing quad-rotor UAV system. Sliding mode controller is established through analyzing quad-rotor dynamics model in which the unknown parameters are computed by offline SVM. During this process, the online adaptive error compensation SVM method is applied in this paper. As modeling errors and noises both exist in the process of flight, the offline SVM one-time mode cannot predict the uncertainties and noises accurately. The control law is adjusted in real-time by introducing new training sample data to online adaptive SVM in the control process, so that the stability and robustness of flight are ensured.

  20. Adaptive Neural-Sliding Mode Control of Active Suspension System for Camera Stabilization

    Feng Zhao

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The camera always suffers from image instability on the moving vehicle due to the unintentional vibrations caused by road roughness. This paper presents a novel adaptive neural network based on sliding mode control strategy to stabilize the image captured area of the camera. The purpose is to suppress vertical displacement of sprung mass with the application of active suspension system. Since the active suspension system has nonlinear and time varying characteristics, adaptive neural network (ANN is proposed to make the controller robustness against systematic uncertainties, which release the model-based requirement of the sliding model control, and the weighting matrix is adjusted online according to Lyapunov function. The control system consists of two loops. The outer loop is a position controller designed with sliding mode strategy, while the PID controller in the inner loop is to track the desired force. The closed loop stability and asymptotic convergence performance can be guaranteed on the basis of the Lyapunov stability theory. Finally, the simulation results show that the employed controller effectively suppresses the vibration of the camera and enhances the stabilization of the entire camera, where different excitations are considered to validate the system performance.

    Fan, Quan-Yong; Yang, Guang-Hong

    2016-01-01

    This paper is concerned with the problem of integral sliding-mode control for a class of nonlinear systems with input disturbances and unknown nonlinear terms through the adaptive actor-critic (AC) control method. The main objective is to design a sliding-mode control methodology based on the adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) method, so that the closed-loop system with time-varying disturbances is stable and the nearly optimal performance of the sliding-mode dynamics can be guaranteed. In the first step, a neural network (NN)-based observer and a disturbance observer are designed to approximate the unknown nonlinear terms and estimate the input disturbances, respectively. Based on the NN approximations and disturbance estimations, the discontinuous part of the sliding-mode control is constructed to eliminate the effect of the disturbances and attain the expected equivalent sliding-mode dynamics. Then, the ADP method with AC structure is presented to learn the optimal control for the sliding-mode dynamics online. Reconstructed tuning laws are developed to guarantee the stability of the sliding-mode dynamics and the convergence of the weights of critic and actor NNs. Finally, the simulation results are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. PMID:26357411

  4. Control of Chaos in Rate-Dependent Friction-Induced Vibration Using Adaptive Sliding Mode Control and Impulse Damper

    Ehsan Maani Miandoab

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Two different control methods, namely, adaptive sliding mode control and impulse damper, are used to control the chaotic vibration of a block on a belt system due to the rate-dependent friction. In the first method, using the sliding mode control technique and based on the Lyapunov stability theory, a sliding surface is determined, and an adaptive control law is established which stabilizes the chaotic response of the system. In the second control method, the vibration of this system is controlled by an impulse damper. In this method, an impulsive force is applied to the system by expanding and contracting the PZT stack according to efficient control law. Numerical simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of both methods in controlling the chaotic vibration of the system. It is shown that the settling time of the controlled system using impulse damper is less than that one controlled by adaptive sliding mode control; however, it needs more control effort.

The electronic throttle is increasingly being used in order to improve the vehicle drivability, fuel economy, and emissions. Electronic throttle system has the nonlinear dynamical characteristics with the unknown disturbance and parameters.

The proposed controller can make the actual angle of the electronic throttle track its set point with the satisfactory performance. Finally, a computer simulation is performed, and simulation results verify that the proposed control method can achieve favorable tracking performance.

    2011-01-01

    A fault tolerant control (FTC) design technique against actuator stuck faults is investigated using integral-type sliding mode control (ISMC) with application to spacecraft attitude maneuvering control system. The principle of the proposed FTC scheme is to design an integral-type sliding mode attitude controller using on-line parameter adaptive updating law to compensate for the effects of stuck actuators. This adaptive law also provides both the estimates of the system parameters and external disturbances such that a prior knowledge of the spacecraft inertia or boundedness of disturbances is not required. Moreover, by including the integral feedback term, the designed controller can not only tolerate actuator stuck faults, but also compensate the disturbances with constant components. For the synthesis of controller, the fault time, patterns and values are unknown in advance, as motivated from a practical spacecraft control application. Complete stability and performance analysis are presented and illustrative simulation results of application to a spacecraft show that high precise attitude control with zero steady-error is successfully achieved using various scenarios of stuck failures in actuators.

  9. Robust Adaptive Sliding Mode Consensus of Multiagent Systems with Perturbed Communications and Actuators

    Xiao-Zheng Jin

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the asymptotic consensus problem for a class of multiagent systems with time-varying additive actuator faults and perturbed communications. The L2 performance of systems is also considered in the consensus controller designs. The upper and lower bounds of faults and perturbations in actuators and communications and controller gains are assumed to be unknown but can be estimated by designing some indirect adaptive laws. Based on the information from the adaptive estimation mechanism, the distributed robust adaptive sliding mode controllers are constructed to automatically compensate for the effects of faults and perturbations and to achieve any given level of L2 gain attenuation from external disturbance to consensus errors. Through Lyapunov functions and adaptive schemes, the asymptotic consensus of resulting adaptive multiagent system can be achieved with a specified performance criterion in the presence of perturbed communications and actuators. The effectiveness of the proposed design is illustrated via a decoupled longitudinal model of F-18 aircraft.

    In this paper, novel adaptive sliding mode dynamic controller with integrator in the loop is proposed for nonholonomic wheeled mobile robot (WMR). The modified kinematics controller is used to generate kinematics velocities of WMR which are subsequently used as the input to adaptive dynamic controller. Actuator dynamics are also derived to generate actuator voltage of WMR through torque and velocity vectors. Stability of both kinematics and dynamic controller is presented using Lyapunov stability analysis. The proposed scheme is verified and validated using computer simulations for tracking the desired trajectory of WMR. The performance of proposed scheme is compared with standard backstepping kinematics controller and classical sliding mode control. In addition, the performance is further compared with standard backstepping kinematics controller with adaptive sliding mode controller without integrator. It is shown that the proposed scheme exhibits zero steady state error, fast error convergence and robustness in the presence of continuous disturbances and uncertainties.

  11. Novel adaptive neural control of flexible air-breathing hypersonic vehicles based on sliding mode differentiator

    Bu Xiangwei

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available A novel adaptive neural control strategy is exploited for the longitudinal dynamics of a generic flexible air-breathing hypersonic vehicle (FAHV. By utilizing functional decomposition method, the dynamics of FAHV is decomposed into the velocity subsystem and the altitude subsystem. For each subsystem, only one neural network is employed for the unknown function approximation. To further reduce the computational burden, minimal-learning parameter (MLP technology is used to estimate the norm of ideal weight vectors rather than their elements. By introducing sliding mode differentiator (SMD to estimate the newly defined variables, there is no need for the strict-feedback form and virtual controller. Hence the developed control law is considerably simpler than the ones derived from back-stepping scheme. Finally, simulation studies are made to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control approach in spite of the flexible effects, system uncertainties and varying disturbances.

    Jianxing Liu

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available We present an adaptive-gain second order sliding mode (SOSM control applied to a hybrid power system for electric vehicle applications. The main advantage of the adaptive SOSM is that it does not require the upper bound of the uncertainty. The proposed hybrid system consists of a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC with a unidirectional DC/DC converter and a Li-ion battery stack with a bidirectional DC/DC converter, where the PEMFC is employed as the primary energy source and the battery is employed as the second energy source. One of the main limitations of the FC is its slow dynamics mainly due to the air-feed system and fuel-delivery system. Fuel starvation phenomenon will occur during fast load demand. Therefore, the second energy source is required to assist the main source to improve system perofrmance. The proposed energy management system contains two cascade control structures, which are used to regulate the fuel cell and battery currents to track the given reference currents and stabilize the DC bus voltage while satisfying the physical limitations. The proposed control strategy is evaluated for two real driving cycles, that is, Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule (UDDS and Highway Fuel Economy Driving Schedule (HWFET.

    Full Text Available As a key assembly in the 5-axis CNC machine tools, positioning precision of the A-axis directly affects the machining accuracy and surface quality of the parts. First of all, mechanical structure and control system of the A-axis are designed. Then, considering the influence of nonlinear friction, backlash, unmodeled dynamics, uncertain cutting force and other external disturbance on the control precision of the A-axis, an adaptive sliding mode control (ASMC based on extended state observer (ESO is proposed. ESO is employed to estimate the state variables of the unknown system and an adaptive law is adopted to compensate for the input dead-zone caused by friction, backlash and other nonlinear characteristics. Finally, stability of the closed-loop system is guaranteed by the Lyapunov theory. Positioning experiments illustrate the perfect estimation of ESO and the stronger anti-interference and robustness of ASMC, which can improve the control precision of the A-axis by about 40 times. Processing experiments show that the ASMC can reduce the waviness, average error and roughness of the processed surface by 35.63%, 31.31% and 30.35%, respectively.

    2015-02-01

    A class of real complicated systems, including chemical reactions, biological systems, information processing, laser systems, electrical circuits, information exchange, brain activities modelling, secure communication and other related ones can be presented through nonlinear and non-identical hyper-chaotic systems. The main goal of the present investigation is to synchronize two non-identical hyperchaotic master/slave systems, which are given as the models of the complicated systems, based on the realization of an efficient automated adaptive sliding mode control scheme. In the research presented here, the mentioned systems need to be dealt with through the proposed control scheme, since two non-identical systems are completely synchronized. In one such case, the whole of the chosen states of the master and slave systems should be coincided after a few time steps, as long as the effect of the external disturbance, uncertainty and unknown parameters could truly be ignored. Due to the fact that the investigated hyper-chaotic systems have taken into consideration as the representation of a number of complicated processes under mentioned external disturbance, uncertainty and unknown parameters, the traditional control approaches cannot actually be realized, in satisfactory manners.With this purpose, the proposed control scheme has been designed to cope with synchronization error, in a reasonable amount of time, in order to drive applicable hyper-chaotic systems. Consequently, the performance of the proposed control scheme is considered and verified through the numerical simulations.

  18. Chaos control using an adaptive fuzzy sliding mode controller with application to a nonlinear pendulum

    Chaos control may be understood as the use of tiny perturbations for the stabilization of unstable periodic orbits embedded in a chaotic attractor. The idea that chaotic behavior may be controlled by small perturbations of physical parameters allows this kind of behavior to be desirable in different applications. In this work, chaos control is performed employing a variable structure controller. The approach is based on the sliding mode control strategy and enhanced by an adaptive fuzzy algorithm to cope with modeling inaccuracies. The convergence properties of the closed-loop system are analytically proven using Lyapunov's direct method and Barbalat's lemma. As an application of the control procedure, a nonlinear pendulum dynamics is investigated. Numerical results are presented in order to demonstrate the control system performance. A comparison between the stabilization of general orbits and unstable periodic orbits embedded in chaotic attractor is carried out showing that the chaos control can confer flexibility to the system by changing the response with low power consumption.

    The hybrid joints of manipulators can be switched to either active (actuated) or passive (underactuated) mode as needed. Consider the property of hybrid joints, the system switches stochastically between active and passive systems, and the dynamics of the jump system cannot stay on each trajectory errors region of subsystems forever; therefore, it is difficult to determine whether the closed-loop system is stochastically stable.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Combining adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control with fuzzy or variable universe fuzzy switching technique, this study develops two novel direct adaptive schemes for a class of MIMO nonlinear systems with uncertainties and external disturbances. The proposed control schemes consist of fuzzy equivalent control terms, fuzzy switching control terms (in scheme one or variable universe fuzzy switching control terms (in scheme two, and compensation control terms. The compensation control terms are used to relax the assumption on fuzzy approximation error. Based on Lyapunov stability theory, the parameters update laws are adaptively tuned online and the global asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system can be guaranteed. The major contribution of this study is to develop a novel framework for designing direct adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control scheme facing model uncertainties and external disturbances. The derived schemes can effectively solve the chattering problem and the equivalent control calculation in that environment. Simulation results performed on a two-link robotic manipulator demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed control schemes.

    2013-01-01

    An analog implementation of a novel fixed-frequency quasi-sliding-mode controller for single-inductor dual-output (SIDO) buck converter in pseudo-continuous conduction mode (PCCM) with a self-adaptive freewheeling current level (SFCL) is presented.Both small and large signal variations around the operation point are considered to achieve better transient response so as to reduce the cross-regulation of this SIDO buck converter.Moreover,an internal integral loop is added to suppress the steady-state regulation error introduced by conventional PWM-based sliding mode controllers.Instead of keeping it as a constant value,the free-wheeling current level varies according to the load condition to maintain high power efficiency and less cross-regulation at the same time.To verify the feasibility of the proposed controller,an SIDO buck converter with two regulated output voltages,1.8 V and 3.3 V,is designed and fabricated in HEJIAN 0.35 μm CMOS process.Simulation and experiment results show that the transient time of this SIDO buck converter drops to 10 μs while the cross-regulation is reduced to 0.057 mV/mA,when its first load changes from 50 to 100 mA.

  3. A novel approach for state of charge estimation based on adaptive switching gain sliding mode observer in electric vehicles

    Chen, Xiaopeng; Shen, Weixiang; Cao, Zhenwei; Kapoor, Ajay

    2014-01-01

    In this paper, a novel approach for battery state of charge (SOC) estimation in electric vehicles (EVs) based on an adaptive switching gain sliding mode observer (ASGSMO) has been presented. To design the ASGSMO for the SOC estimation, the state equations based on a battery equivalent circuit model (BECM) are derived to represent dynamic behaviours of a battery. Comparing with a conventional sliding mode observer, the ASGSMO has a capability of minimising chattering levels in the SOC estimation by using the self-adjusted switching gain while maintaining the characteristics of being able to compensate modelling errors caused by the parameter variations of the BECM. Lyapunov stability theory is adopted to prove the error convergence of the ASGSMO for the SOC estimation. The lithium-polymer battery (LiPB) is utilised to conduct experiments for determining the parameters of the BECM and verifying the effectiveness of the proposed ASGSMO in various discharge current profiles including EV driving conditions in both city and suburban.

To validate the proposed scheme, a composite control which adopts both chamber pressure and payload velocity as feedback signal is implemented. During experimental investigations, sinusoidal excitation at resonance and random-like signal are input on a floor base to simulate ground vibration. Performances obtained from the proposed scheme are compared with those obtained from passive system and PID scheme to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed intelligent control.

  7. Synchronization analysis and control of three eccentric rotors in a vibrating system using adaptive sliding mode control algorithm

    Kong, Xiangxi; Zhang, Xueliang; Chen, Xiaozhe; Wen, Bangchun; Wang, Bo

    2016-05-01

    In this paper, self- and controlled synchronizations of three eccentric rotors (ERs) in line driven by induction motors rotating in the same direction in a vibrating system are investigated. The vibrating system is a typical underactuated mechanical-electromagnetic coupling system. The analysis and control of the vibrating system convert to the synchronization motion problem of three ERs. Firstly, the self-synchronization motion of three ERs is analyzed according to self-synchronization theory. The criterions of synchronization and stability of self-synchronous state are obtained by using a modified average perturbation method. The significant synchronization motion of three ERs with zero phase differences cannot be implemented according to self-synchronization theory through analysis and simulations. To implement the synchronization motion of three ERs with zero phase differences, an adaptive sliding mode control (ASMC) algorithm based on a modified master-slave control strategy is employed to design the controllers. The stability of the controllers is verified by using Lyapunov theorem. The performances of the controlled synchronization system are presented by simulations to demonstrate the effectiveness of controllers. Finally, the effects of reference speed and non-zero phase differences on the controlled system are discussed to show the strong robustness of the proposed controllers. Additionally, the dynamic responses of the vibrating system in different synchronous states are analyzed.

    2014-04-01

    A sliding-mode observer is designed to estimate the vehicle velocity with the measured vehicle acceleration, the wheel speeds and the braking torques. Based on the Burckhardt tyre model, the extended Kalman filter is designed to estimate the parameters of the Burckhardt model with the estimated vehicle velocity, the measured wheel speeds and the vehicle acceleration. According to the estimated parameters of the Burckhardt tyre model, the tyre/road friction coefficients and the optimal slip ratios are calculated. A vehicle adaptive sliding-mode control (SMC) algorithm is presented with the estimated vehicle velocity, the tyre/road friction coefficients and the optimal slip ratios. And the adjustment method of the sliding-mode gain factors is discussed. Based on the adaptive SMC algorithm, a vehicle's antilock braking system (ABS) control system model is built with the Simulink Toolbox. Under the single-road condition as well as the different road conditions, the performance of the vehicle ABS system is simulated with the vehicle velocity observer, the tyre/road friction coefficient estimator and the adaptive SMC algorithm. The results indicate that the estimated errors of the vehicle velocity and the tyre/road friction coefficients are acceptable and the vehicle ABS adaptive SMC algorithm is effective. So the proposed adaptive SMC algorithm can be used to control the vehicle ABS without the information of the vehicle velocity and the road conditions.

    Brief reviews on suppressing panel flutter vibrations by various active control strategies as well as utilization tunable electrorheological fluids (ERFs) for vibration control of structural systems are presented. Active suppression of the supersonic flutter motion of a simply supported sandwich panel with a tunable ERF interlayer, and coupled to an elastic foundation, is subsequently investigated. The structural formulation is based on the classical beam theory along with the Winkler–Pasternak foundation model, the ER fluid core is modeled as a first-order Kelvin–Voigt material, and the quasi-steady first-order supersonic piston theory is employed to describe the aerodynamic loading. Hamilton’s principle is used to derive a set of fully coupled dynamic equations of motion. The generalized Fourier expansions in conjunction with the Galerkin method are then employed to formulate the governing equations in the state space domain. The critical dynamic pressures at which unstable panel oscillations (coalescence of eigenvalues) occur are obtained via the p-method for selected applied electric field strengths (E = 0,2,4 kV mm−1). The classical Runge–Kutta time integration algorithm is subsequently used to calculate the open-loop aeroelastic response of the system in various basic loading configurations (i.e. uniformly distributed blast, gust, sonic boom, and step loads), with or without an interacting soft/stiff elastic foundation. Finally, a sliding mode control synthesis (SMC) involving the first six natural modes of the structural system is set up to actively suppress the closed-loop system response in supersonic flight conditions and under the imposed excitations. Simulation results demonstrate performance, effectiveness, and insensitivity with respect to the spillover of the proposed SMC-based control system. Limiting cases are considered and good agreements with the data available in the literature as well as with the computations made by using the

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Sliding mode controllers have succeeded in many control problems that the conventional control theories have difficulties to deal with; however it is practically impossible to achieve high-speed switching control. Therefore, in this paper an adaptive fuzzy backstepping sliding mode control scheme is derived for mismatched uncertain systems. Firstly fuzzy sliding mode controller is designed using backstepping method based on the Lyapunov function approach, which is capable of handling mismatched problem. Then fuzzy sliding mode controller is designed using T-S fuzzy model method, it can improve the performance of the control systems and their robustness. Finally this method of control is applied to nonlinear system as a case study; simulation results are also provided the performance of the proposed controller.

  15. Nonlinear torque and stator flux controller for induction motor drive based on adaptive input-output feedback linearization and sliding mode control

    This paper describes a nonlinear torque and stator flux controller for three phase induction motor (IM) drives on the basis of a space vector modulation (SVM) scheme. Using the IM fifth order model in a fixed 'ab' axis reference frame with stator currents (isa ,isb) and stator fluxes (ψsa,ψsb) as state variables, a sliding mode (SM) torque and flux controller is designed first in order to track a linear reference model, which has the desired dynamic behaviors for the IM drive system. The SM controller generates the reference voltages (vas*,vbs*) for a two level space vector modulation-pulse width modulation (SVM-PWM) inverter that feeds the motor. Then, the SM controller is combined with an adaptive input-output feedback linearization technique in order to preserve the system robustness with respect to stator and rotor resistances variations and uncertainties. Finally, simulations and comparative experimental results with the proposed control scheme are presented

    Yin, Xiu-xing; Lin, Yong-gang; Li, Wei; Liu, Hong-wei; Gu, Ya-jing

    2015-09-01

    A variable-displacement pump controlled pitch system is proposed to mitigate generator power and flap-wise load fluctuations for wind turbines. The pitch system mainly consists of a variable-displacement hydraulic pump, a fixed-displacement hydraulic motor and a gear set. The hydraulic motor can be accurately regulated by controlling the pump displacement and fluid flows to change the pitch angle through the gear set. The detailed mathematical representation and dynamic characteristics of the proposed pitch system are thoroughly analyzed. An adaptive sliding mode pump displacement controller and a back-stepping stroke piston controller are designed for the proposed pitch system such that the resulting pitch angle tracks its desired value regardless of external disturbances and uncertainties. The effectiveness and control efficiency of the proposed pitch system and controllers have been verified by using realistic dataset of a 750 kW research wind turbine. PMID:26303957

    Full Text Available This paper presents a detailed discussion about the convergence properties of a variable structure controller for uncertain single-input-single-output nonlinear systems (SISO. The adopted approach is based on the sliding mode control strategy and enhanced by an adaptive fuzzy algorithm to cope with modeling inaccuracies and external disturbances that can arise. The boundedness of all closed-loop signals and the convergence properties of the tracking error are analytically proven using Lyapunov's direct method and Barbalat's lemma. This result corrects flawed conclusions previously reached in the literature. An application of this adaptive fuzzy sliding mode controller to a second-order nonlinear system is also presented. The obtained numerical results demonstrate the improved control system performance.Este trabalho apresenta uma discussão detalhada acerca das propriedades de convergência de um controlador à estrutura variável para sistemas incertos com uma entrada e uma saída (SISO.

A limitação de todos os sinais do sistema em malha-fechada e as propriedades de convergência do erro de rastreamento são demonstradas analiticamente através do método direto de Liapunov e do lema de Barbalat. Este resultado corrige conclusões errôneas apresentadas anteriormente na literatura. Uma aplicação do controlador por modos deslizantes difuso adaptativo em um sistema não-linear de segunda ordem também é discutida.

  1. Decentralized adaptive robust control based on sliding mode and nonlinear compensator for the control of ankle movement using functional electrical stimulation of agonist-antagonist muscles

    Kobravi, Hamid-Reza; Erfanian, Abbas

    2009-08-01

    A decentralized control methodology is designed for the control of ankle dorsiflexion and plantarflexion in paraplegic subjects with electrical stimulation of tibialis anterior and calf muscles. Each muscle joint is considered as a subsystem and individual controllers are designed for each subsystem. Each controller operates solely on its associated subsystem, with no exchange of information between the subsystems. The interactions between the subsystems are taken as external disturbances for each isolated subsystem. In order to achieve robustness with respect to external disturbances, unmodeled dynamics, model uncertainty and time-varying properties of muscle-joint dynamics, a robust control framework is proposed which is based on the synergistic combination of an adaptive nonlinear compensator with a sliding mode control and is referred to as an adaptive robust control. Extensive simulations and experiments on healthy and paraplegic subjects were performed to demonstrate the robustness against the time-varying properties of muscle-joint dynamics, day-to-day variations, subject-to-subject variations, fast convergence, stability and tracking accuracy of the proposed method. The results indicate that the decentralized robust control provides excellent tracking control for different reference trajectories and can generate control signals to compensate the muscle fatigue and reject the external disturbance. Moreover, the controller is able to automatically regulate the interaction between agonist and antagonist muscles under different conditions of operating without any preprogrammed antagonist activities.

  7. Multivariable robust adaptive sliding mode control of an industrial boiler-turbine in the presence of modeling imprecisions and external disturbances: A comparison with type-I servo controller.

    Ghabraei, Soheil; Moradi, Hamed; Vossoughi, Gholamreza

    2015-09-01

    To guarantee the safety and efficient performance of the power plant, a robust controller for the boiler-turbine unit is needed. In this paper, a robust adaptive sliding mode controller (RASMC) is proposed to control a nonlinear multi-input multi-output (MIMO) model of industrial boiler-turbine unit, in the presence of unknown bounded uncertainties and external disturbances. To overcome the coupled nonlinearities and investigate the zero dynamics, input-output linearization is performed, and then the new decoupled inputs are derived. To tackle the uncertainties and external disturbances, appropriate adaption laws are introduced. For constructing the RASMC, suitable sliding surface is considered. To guarantee the sliding motion occurrence, appropriate control laws are constructed. Then the robustness and stability of the proposed RASMC is proved via Lyapunov stability theory. To compare the performance of the purposed RASMC with traditional control schemes, a type-I servo controller is designed. To evaluate the performance of the proposed control schemes, simulation studies on nonlinear MIMO dynamic system in the presence of high frequency bounded uncertainties and external disturbances are conducted and compared. Comparison of the results reveals the superiority of proposed RASMC over the traditional control schemes. RAMSC acts efficiently in disturbance rejection and keeping the system behavior in desirable tracking objectives, without the existence of unstable quasi-periodic solutions. PMID:25983065

  10. Artificial Chattering Free on-line Modified Sliding Mode Algorithm: Applied in Continuum Robot Manipulator

    Mohammad Mahdi Ebrahimi

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available In this research, an artificial chattering free adaptive fuzzy modified sliding mode control design and application to continuum robotic manipulator has proposed in order to design high performance nonlinear controller in the presence of uncertainties. Regarding to the positive points in sliding mode controller, fuzzy logic controller and online tuning method, the output improves. Each method by adding to the previous controller has covered negative points. The main target in this research is design of model free estimator on-line sliding mode fuzzy algorithm for continuum robot manipulator to reach an acceptable performance. Continuum robot manipulators are highly nonlinear, and a number of parameters are uncertain, therefore design model free controller by both analytical and empirical paradigms are the main goal. Although classical sliding mode methodology has acceptable performance with known dynamic parameters such as stability and robustness but there are two important disadvantages as below: chattering phenomenon and mathematical nonlinear dynamic equivalent controller part. To solve the chattering fuzzy logic inference applied instead of dead zone function. To solve the equivalent problems in classical sliding mode controller this paper focuses on applied on-line tuning method in classical controller. This algorithm works very well in certain and uncertain environment. The system performance in sliding mode controller is sensitive to the sliding function. Therefore, compute the optimum value of sliding function for a system is the next challenge. This problem has solved by adjusting sliding function of the on-line method continuously in real-time. In this way, the overall system performance has improved with respect to the classical sliding mode controller. This controller solved chattering phenomenon as well as mathematical nonlinear equivalent part by applied modified PID supervisory method in modified fuzzy sliding mode controller and

  16. Robust Sliding Mode Control for Tokamaks

    I. Garrido

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Nuclear fusion has arisen as an alternative energy to avoid carbon dioxide emissions, being the tokamak a promising nuclear fusion reactor that uses a magnetic field to confine plasma in the shape of a torus. However, different kinds of magnetohydrodynamic instabilities may affect tokamak plasma equilibrium, causing severe reduction of particle confinement and leading to plasma disruptions. In this sense, numerous efforts and resources have been devoted to seeking solutions for the different plasma control problems so as to avoid energy confinement time decrements in these devices. In particular, since the growth rate of the vertical instability increases with the internal inductance, lowering the internal inductance is a fundamental issue to address for the elongated plasmas employed within the advanced tokamaks currently under development. In this sense, this paper introduces a lumped parameter numerical model of the tokamak in order to design a novel robust sliding mode controller for the internal inductance using the transformer primary coil as actuator.

    Rucker, D Caleb; Das, Jadav; Gilbert, Hunter B; Swaney, Philip J; Miga, Michael I; Sarkar, Nilanjan; Webster, Robert J

    2013-10-01

    Steerable needles can potentially increase the accuracy of needle-based diagnosis and therapy delivery, provided they can be adequately controlled based on medical image information. We propose a novel sliding mode control law that can be used to deliver the tip of a flexible asymmetric-tipped needle to a desired point, or to track a desired trajectory within tissue. The proposed control strategy requires no a priori knowledge of model parameters, has bounded input speeds, and requires little computational resources. We show that if the standard nonholonomic model for tip-steered needles holds, then the control law will converge to desired targets in a reachable workspace, within a tolerance that can be defined by the control parameters. Experimental results validate the control law for target points and trajectory following in phantom tissue and ex vivo liver. Experiments with targets that move during insertion illustrate robustness to disturbances caused by tissue deformation. PMID:25400527

  1. Guaranteed performance in reaching mode of sliding mode controlled systems

    G K Singh; K E Holé

    2004-02-01

    Conventionally, the parameters of a sliding mode controller (SMC) are selected so as to reduce the time spent in the reaching mode. Although, an upper bound on the time to reach (reaching time) the sliding surface is easily derived, performance guarantee in the state/error space needs more consideration. This paper addresses the design of constant plus proportional rate reaching law-based SMC for second-order nonlinear systems. It is shown that this controller imposes a bounding second-order error-dynamics, and thus guarantees robust performance during the reaching phase. The choice of the controller parameters based on the time to reach a desirable level of output tracking error (OTE), rather than on the reaching time is proposed. Using the Lyapunov theory, it is shown that parameter selections, based on the reaching time criterion, may need substantially larger time to achieve the OTE. Simulation results are presented for a nonlinear spring-massdamper system. It is seen that parameter selections based on the proposed OTE criterion, result in substantially quicker tracking, while using similar levels of control effort.

  2. Phase and speed synchronization control of four eccentric rotors driven by induction motors in a linear vibratory feeder with unknown time-varying load torques using adaptive sliding mode control algorithm

    Kong, Xiangxi; Zhang, Xueliang; Chen, Xiaozhe; Wen, Bangchun; Wang, Bo

    2016-05-01

    In this paper, phase and speed synchronization control of four eccentric rotors (ERs) driven by induction motors in a linear vibratory feeder with unknown time-varying load torques is studied. Firstly, the electromechanical coupling model of the linear vibratory feeder is established by associating induction motor's model with the dynamic model of the system, which is a typical under actuated model. According to the characteristics of the linear vibratory feeder, the complex control problem of the under actuated electromechanical coupling model converts to phase and speed synchronization control of four ERs. In order to keep the four ERs operating synchronously with zero phase differences, phase and speed synchronization controllers are designed by employing adaptive sliding mode control (ASMC) algorithm via a modified master-slave structure. The stability of the controllers is proved by Lyapunov stability theorem. The proposed controllers are verified by simulation via Matlab/Simulink program and compared with the conventional sliding mode control (SMC) algorithm. The results show the proposed controllers can reject the time-varying load torques effectively and four ERs can operate synchronously with zero phase differences. Moreover, the control performance is better than the conventional SMC algorithm and the chattering phenomenon is attenuated. Furthermore, the effects of reference speed and parametric perturbations are discussed to show the strong robustness of the proposed controllers. Finally, experiments on a simple vibratory test bench are operated by using the proposed controllers and without control, respectively, to validate the effectiveness of the proposed controllers further.

    This paper shows that classical sliding mode theory fails to correctly predict the output impedance of the highly useful sliding mode PID compensated buck converter. The reason for this is identified as the assumption of the sliding variable being held at zero during sliding mode, effectively...... modeling the hysteretic comparator as an infinite gain. Correct prediction of output impedance is shown to be enabled by the use of a more elaborate, finite-gain model of the hysteretic comparator, which takes the effects of time delay and finite switching frequency into account. The demonstrated modeling...... approach also predicts the self-oscillating switching action of the sliding-mode control system correctly. Analytical findings are verified by simulation as well as experimentally in a 10-30V/3A buck converter....

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes adaptive sliding mode control design for a class of fractional commensurate order chaotic systems. We firstly introduce a fractional integral sliding manifold for the nominal systems. Secondly we prove the stability of the corresponding fractional sliding dynamics. Then, by introducing a Lyapunov candidate function and using the Mittag-Leffler stability theory we derive the desired sliding control law. Furthermore, we prove that the proposed sliding manifold is also adapted for the fractional systems in the presence of uncertainties and external disturbances. At last, we design a fractional adaptation law for the perturbed fractional systems. To verify the viability and efficiency of the proposed fractional controllers, numerical simulations of fractional Lorenz’s system and Chen’s system are presented.

  5. Robust sliding mode control applied to double Inverted pendulum system

    A three hierarchical sliding mode control is presented for a class of an underactuated system which can overcome the mismatched perturbations. The considered underactuated system is a double inverted pendulum (DIP), can be modeled by three subsystems. Such structure allows the construction of several designs of hierarchies for the controller. For all hierarchical designs, the asymptotic stability of every layer sliding mode surface and the sliding mode surface of subsystems are proved theoretically by Barbalat's lemma. Simulation results show the validity of these methods.

  8. Sliding mode controller of rf cavity tuning loop

    Ferrite tuned cavities must operate under a wide range of accelerating frequencies. The tuning is done by modulating the current in the coil surrounding the ferrite. Feedback controllers are used to improve the tuning condition by sensing the phase error. The design of controllers currently in use is based on classical frequency domain techniques. Classical controllers in this application are sensitive to variations in the tuning system parameters. Also, these controllers generally fail to provide correct transient response when there is beam in the cavity, since the beam loading changes the transfer function of the system. We have designed a robust and adaptive controller based on sliding mode techniques for a cavity tuning system on the ISIS synchrotron. The techniques are extendable to other systems. 7 refs., 3 figs

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available The first sliding mode control application may be found in the papers back in the 1930s in Russia. With its versatile yet simple design procedure the methodology is proven to be one of the most powerful solutions for many practical control designs. For the sake of demonstration this paper is oriented towards application aspects of sliding mode control methodology. First the design approach based on the regularization is generalized for mechanical systems. It is shown that stability of zero dynamics should be taken into account when the regular form consists of blocks of second-order equations. Majority of applications in the paper are related to control and estimation methods of automotive industry. New theoretical methods are developed in the context of these studies: sliding made nonlinear observers, observers with binary measurements, parameter estimation in systems with sliding mode control.

    研究了柔性空间机械臂协调运动控制及柔性振动抑制问题。利用假设模态法及系统动量守恒关系,导出了空间机械臂的系统动力学模型。基于混合滑模思想,针对系统惯性参数存在不确定的复杂情况,提出了一种柔性空间机械臂本体姿态、关节协调运动的自适应变结构控制方案。该文所引入的混合滑模由频率成形最优滑模及终端滑模两部分组成。前者用于抑制系统柔性杆件的振动,后者则是为了保证系统追踪误差在有限时间内的收敛性。此外,上述控制方案由于在控制过程中无需预知系统的柔性变量,因此可有效避免对系统柔性状态变量进行实时地测量与反馈,较适于实际应用。仿真运算,证实了所提控制方法的有效性。%The coordinated motion control and flexible vibration suppression problems of flexible space manipulator are studied.With the assumed mode method and the linear momentum conservation of the system,the system dynamics model of the space manipulator is derived.Based on the hybrid sliding mode concept,an adaptive variable structure control scheme is proposed for the flexible space manipulator to achieve the coordinated motion between the base's attitude and the arm's joints,which accounts for the uncertainty in inertial parameters.The hybrid sliding mode introduced consists of two parts,the frequency shaped optimal sliding mode and the terminal sliding mode.The former is used to suppress the vibration of flexible link of the system,and the latter is utilized to guarantee the convergence of system tracking errors in finite time.Moreover,the control scheme proposed does not require the foreknowledge of flexible variables in control.Thus,it can effectively avoid the real-time measurements and feedbacks of system flexible variables,and be more suitable for practical applications.Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.

  14. Second order sliding mode control for a quadrotor UAV.

    Zheng, En-Hui; Xiong, Jing-Jing; Luo, Ji-Liang

    2014-07-01

    A method based on second order sliding mode control (2-SMC) is proposed to design controllers for a small quadrotor UAV. For the switching sliding manifold design, the selection of the coefficients of the switching sliding manifold is in general a sophisticated issue because the coefficients are nonlinear. In this work, in order to perform the position and attitude tracking control of the quadrotor perfectly, the dynamical model of the quadrotor is divided into two subsystems, i.e., a fully actuated subsystem and an underactuated subsystem. For the former, a sliding manifold is defined by combining the position and velocity tracking errors of one state variable, i.e., the sliding manifold has two coefficients. For the latter, a sliding manifold is constructed via a linear combination of position and velocity tracking errors of two state variables, i.e., the sliding manifold has four coefficients. In order to further obtain the nonlinear coefficients of the sliding manifold, Hurwitz stability analysis is used to the solving process. In addition, the flight controllers are derived by using Lyapunov theory, which guarantees that all system state trajectories reach and stay on the sliding surfaces. Extensive simulation results are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control method. PMID:24751475

  15. Theory of psychological adaptive modes.

    Lehti, Juha

    2016-05-01

    When an individual is facing a stressor and normal stress-response mechanism cannot guarantee sufficient adaptation, special emotional states, adaptive modes, are activated (for example a depressive reaction). Adaptive modes are involuntary states of mind, they are of comprehensive nature, they interfere with normal functioning, and they cannot be repressed or controlled the same way as many emotions. Their transformational nature differentiates them from other emotional states. The object of the adaptive mode is to optimize the problem-solving abilities according to the situation that has provoked the mode. Cognitions and emotions during the adaptive mode are different than in a normal mental state. These altered cognitions and emotional reactions guide the individual to use the correct coping skills in order to deal with the stressor. Successful adaptation will cause the adaptive mode to fade off since the adaptive mode is no longer necessary, and the process as a whole will lead to raised well-being. However, if the adaptation process is inadequate, then the transformation period is prolonged, and the adaptive mode will turn into a dysfunctional state. Many psychiatric disorders are such maladaptive processes. The maladaptive processes can be turned into functional ones by using adaptive skills that are used in functional adaptive processes.

Moreover, system robustness against parameter variations and external disturbances are obtained by the proposed control method, and suitable PID control gain parameters can be systematically on-line computed based on adaptive law. The boundary layer condition is adopted to reduce the high frequency chattering in the switching part of the sliding mode controller. Finally, an example with a waterjet propulsion ship is shown to verify the effectiveness of the proposed controller. Simulations, with ship course changing 10°, illustrate that the design controller has good dynamic performances without little overshooting and strong robustness, and can meet the engineering requirement of the ship course real-time control.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Specifically setting a time delay fractional financial system as the study object, this paper proposes a single controller method to eliminate the impact of model uncertainty and external disturbances on the system. The proposed method is based on the stability theory of Lyapunov sliding-mode adaptive control and fractional-order linear systems. The controller can fit the system state within the sliding-mode surface so as to realize synchronization of fractional-order chaotic systems. Analysis results demonstrate that the proposed single integral, sliding-mode control method can control the time delay fractional power system to realize chaotic synchronization, with strong robustness to external disturbance. The controller is simple in structure. The proposed method was also validated by numerical simulation.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available In order to improve the performance of the Bearingless Induction Motor (BIM under large disturbances (such as parameter variations and load disturbances, an adaptive variable-rated sliding mode controller (ASMC is designed to obtain better performance of the speed regulation system. Firstly, the L 1 norm of state variables is applied to the conventional exponential reaching law and an adaptive variable-rated exponential reaching law is proposed to reduce system chattering and improve bad convergence performance of the sliding mode variable structure. Secondly, an integral sliding-mode hyper plane is produced according to the speed error in speed regulation system of BIM. Current signal is extracted by the combination of the sliding-mode hyper plane, the electromagnetic torque and the equation of motion. Finally, the feedback speed can adjust operating state adaptively according to speed error and make system chattering-free moving. The simulation and experiment results show that the proposed ASMC can not only enhance the robustness of the system’s uncertainties, but also improve the dynamic performance and suppress system chattering.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available A sliding mode control design for a miniature unmanned helicopter is presented. The control objective is to let the helicopter track some predefined velocity and yaw trajectories. A new sliding mode control design method is developed based on a linearized dynamic model. In order to facilitate the control design, the helicopter’s dynamic model is divided into two subsystems, such as the longitudinal-lateral and the heading-heave subsystem. The proposed controller employs sliding mode control technique to compensate for the immeasurable flapping angles’ dynamic effects and external disturbances. The global asymptotic stability (GAS of the closed-loop system is proved by the Lyapunov based stability analysis. Numerical simulations demonstrate that the proposed controller can achieve superior tracking performance compared with the proportional-integral-derivative (PID and linear-quadratic regulator (LQR cascaded controller in the presence of wind gust disturbances.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The robust optimal attitude control problem for a flexible spacecraft is considered. Two optimal sliding mode control laws that ensure the exponential convergence of the attitude control system are developed. Integral sliding mode control (ISMC is applied to combine the first-order sliding mode with optimal control and is used to control quaternion-based spacecraft attitude manoeuvres with external disturbances and an uncertainty inertia matrix. For the optimal control part the state-dependent Riccati equation (SDRE and optimal Lyapunov techniques are employed to solve the infinite-time nonlinear optimal control problem. The second method of Lyapunov is used to guarantee the stability of the attitude control system under the action of the proposed control laws. An example of multiaxial attitude manoeuvres is presented and simulation results are included to verify the usefulness of the developed controllers.

  6. Robust antisynchronization of chaos using sliding mode control strategy

    Amit Mondal; Mitul Islam; Nurul Islam

    2015-01-01

    The paper proposes a sliding mode control strategy-based scheme for achieving anti-synchronization between two coupled non-linear chaotic systems. The method works irrespective of whether the systems under consideration possess or lack inverse symmetry. Using a linear sliding surface, a sliding mode control input and a non-linear coupling function are designed that synchronizes the systems antiphase. Finite-time convergence of the method is established. The controller is also robust to all forms of bounded perturbations and this robustness can be easily achieved by tuning of a single controller parameter and introduction of a control vector. The controller is also made chattering-free by producing a continuous analogue of the discontinuous control input. The effectiveness of the method is established by implementing it to antisynchronize chaotic Sprott systems and Rossler systems. The results are also verified through numerical simulation work.

    Recent advances in catalysis technologies and new materials make fuel cells an economically appealing and clean energy source with massive market potential in portable devices, home power generation and the automotive industry. Among the more promising fuel-cell technologies are proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs). Sliding-Mode Control of PEM Fuel Cells demonstrates the application of higher-order sliding-mode control to PEMFC dynamics. Fuel-cell dynamics are often highly nonlinear and the text shows the advantages of sliding modes in terms of robustness to external disturbance, modelling error and system-parametric disturbance using higher-order control to reduce chattering. Divided into two parts, the book first introduces the theory of fuel cells and sliding-mode control. It begins by contextualising PEMFCs both in terms of their development and within the hydrogen economy and today’s energy production situation as a whole. The reader is then guided through a discussion of fuel-cell operation pr...

  8. Sliding mode control based guidance law with impact angle constraint

    Zhao Yao; Sheng Yongzhi; Liu Xiangdong

    2014-01-01

    The terminal guidance problem for an unpowered lifting reentry vehicle against a sta-tionary target is considered. In addition to attacking the target with high accuracy, the vehicle is also expected to achieve a desired impact angle. In this paper, a sliding mode control (SMC)-based guidance law is developed to satisfy the terminal angle constraint. Firstly, a specific sliding mode function is designed, and the terminal requirements can be achieved by enforcing both the sliding mode function and its derivative to zero at the end of the flight. Then, a backstepping approach is used to ensure the finite-time reaching phase of the sliding mode and the analytic expression of the control effort can be obtained. The trajectories generated by this method only depend on the initial and terminal conditions of the terminal phase and the instantaneous states of the vehicle. In order to test the performance of the proposed guidance law in practical application, numerical simulations are carried out by taking all the aerodynamic parameters into consideration. The effec-tiveness of the proposed guidance law is verified by the simulation results in various scenarios.

    MITIC, D. B.

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available The control of anti-lock braking system is a great challenge, because of the nonlinear and complex characteristics of braking dynamics, unknown parameters of vehicle environment and system parameter variations. Using some of robust control methods, such as sliding mode control, can be a right solution for these problems. In this paper, we introduce a novel approach to design of ABS controllers, which is based on digital sliding mode control with only input/output measurements. The relay term of the proposed digital sliding mode control is filtered through digital integrator, reducing the chattering phenomenon in that way, and the additional signal of estimated modelling error is introduced into control algorithm to enhance the system steady-state accuracy. The given solution was verified in real experimental framework and the obtained results were compared with the results of implementation of two other digital sliding mode control algorithms. It is shown that it gives better system response, higher steady-state accuracy and smaller chattering.

  11. Sliding Mode Control (SMC) of Robot Manipulator via Intelligent Controllers

    Kapoor, Neha; Ohri, Jyoti

    2016-06-01

    Inspite of so much research, key technical problem, naming chattering of conventional, simple and robust SMC is still a challenge to the researchers and hence limits its practical application. However, newly developed soft computing based techniques can provide solution. In order to have advantages of conventional and heuristic soft computing based control techniques, in this paper various commonly used intelligent techniques, neural network, fuzzy logic and adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) have been combined with sliding mode controller (SMC). For validation, proposed hybrid control schemes have been implemented for tracking a predefined trajectory by robotic manipulator, incorporating structured and unstructured uncertainties in the system. After reviewing numerous papers, all the commonly occurring uncertainties like continuous disturbance, uniform random white noise, static friction like coulomb friction and viscous friction, dynamic friction like Dhal friction and LuGre friction have been inserted in the system. Various performance indices like norm of tracking error, chattering in control input, norm of input torque, disturbance rejection, chattering rejection have been used. Comparative results show that with almost eliminated chattering the intelligent SMC controllers are found to be more efficient over simple SMC. It has also been observed from results that ANFIS based controller has the best tracking performance with the reduced burden on the system. No paper in the literature has found to have all these structured and unstructured uncertainties together for motion control of robotic manipulator.

    The nonlinear dynamic model of spinning ballistic missiles is established during the first boosting phase of the missile. Based on the conventional backstepping sliding mode control and the assumption of a two time-scale separation of missile dynamics, a graded sliding mode controller is designed with two sub-sliding surfaces which have invariability to external disturbances and parameter perturbations, and a matrix which comprises three first order low pass filters is introduced to prevent "explosion of terms". Owing to the upper bounds of the uncertainties are difficult to obtain in advance,adaptive laws are introduced to estimate the values of the uncertainties in real-time. Eventually, the numerical simulation results given to show the proposed controller can ensure the steady flight of missiles.

    1998-01-01

    Magnetic torquing is attractive as a control principle on small satellites. The actuation principle is to use the interaction between the earth's magnetic field and magnetic field generated by a coil set in the satellite. This control principle is inherently nonlinear, and difficult to use because...... control torques can only be generated perpendicular to the local geomagnetic field vector. This has been a serious obstacle for using magnetorquer based control for three-axis attitude control. This paper deals with three-axis stabilization of a low earth orbit satellite. The problem of controlling the...... spacecraft attitude using only magnetic torquing is realized in the form of the sliding mode control. A three dimensional sliding manifold is proposed, and it is shown that the satellite motion on the sliding manifold is asymptotically stable...

  14. Design and Implementation of a Magnetic Levitation System Controller using Global Sliding Mode Control

    Rudi Uswarman

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents global sliding mode control and conventional sliding mode control for stabilization position of a levitation object. Sliding mode control will be robusting when in sliding mode condition. However, it is not necessarily robust at attaining phase. In the global sliding mode control, the attaining motion phase was eliminated, so that the robustness of the controller can be improved. However, the value of the parameter uncertainties needs to be limited. Besides that, the common problem in sliding mode control is high chattering phenomenon. If the chattering is too large, it can make the system unstable due the limited ability of electronics component. The strategy to overcome the chattering phenomenon is needed. Based on simulation and experimental results, the global sliding mode control has better performance than conventional sliding mode control.

    Full Text Available This paper addresses the path following problem of an underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV with the aim of dealing with parameter uncertainties and current disturbances. An adaptive robust control system was proposed by employing fuzzy logic, backstepping and sliding mode control theory. Fuzzy logic theory is adopted to approximate unknown system function, and the controller was designed by combining sliding mode control with backstepping thought. Firstly, the longitudinal speed was controlled, then the yaw angle was made as input of path following error to design the calm function and the change rate of path parameters. The controller stability was proved by Lyapunov stable theory. Simulation and outfield tests were conducted and the results showed that the controller is of excellent adaptability and robustness in the presence of parameter uncertainties and external disturbances. It is also shown to be able to avoid the chattering of AUV actuators.

    Fang, Jiwen; Long, Zhili; Wang, Michael Yu; Zhang, Lufan; Dai, Xufei

    2016-02-01

    This paper presents the control performance of a linear motion stage driven by Voice Coil Motor (VCM). Unlike the conventional VCM, the stator of this VCM is regulated, which means it can be adjusted as a floating-stator or fixed-stator. A Multi-Mode Sliding Mode Control (MMSMC), including a conventional Sliding Mode Control (SMC) and an Integral Sliding Mode Control (ISMC), is designed to control the linear motion stage. The control is switched between SMC and IMSC based on the error threshold. To eliminate the chattering, a smooth function is adopted instead of a signum function. The experimental results with the floating stator show that the positioning accuracy and tracking performance of the linear motion stage are improved with the MMSMC approach.

    Nimrod Vázquez

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Solar panels, which have become a good choice, are used to generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential applications. This generated power starts with the solar cells, which have a complex relationship between solar irradiation, temperature, and output power. For this reason a tracking of the maximum power point is required. Traditionally, this has been made by considering just current and voltage conditions at the photovoltaic panel; however, temperature also influences the process. In this paper the voltage, current, and temperature in the PV system are considered to be a part of a sliding surface for the proposed maximum power point tracking; this means a sliding mode controller is applied. Obtained results gave a good dynamic response, as a difference from traditional schemes, which are only based on computational algorithms. A traditional algorithm based on MPPT was added in order to assure a low steady state error.

  6. Design Robust Fuzzy Sliding Mode Control Technique for Robot Manipulator Systems with Modeling Uncertainties

    Farzin Piltan

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper describes the design and implementation of robust nonlinear sliding mode control strategies for robot manipulators whose dynamic or kinematic models are uncertain. Therefore a fuzzy sliding mode tracking controller for robot manipulators with uncertainty in the kinematic and dynamic models is design and analyzes. The controller is developed based on the unit quaternion representation so that singularities associated with the otherwise commonly used three parameter representations are avoided. Simulation results for a planar application of the continuum or hyper-redundant robot manipulator (CRM are provided to illustrate the performance of the developed adaptive controller. These manipulators do not have rigid joints, hence, they are difficult to model and this leads to significant challenges in developing high-performance control algorithms. In this research, a joint level controller for continuum robots is described which utilizes a fuzzy methodology component to compensate for dynamic uncertainties.

    2013-01-01

    To improve the robustness and control precision of single-axis roll stabilized servo platform (SRSSP) in strap-down inertial navigation system, a novel servo control method based on adaptive nonsingular and fast terminal dynamic sliding mode is presented. The principle of SRSSP is introduced, and an adaptive nonsingular and fast terminal sliding mode control method with steady-state error and chatting is analyzed. Based on three-loop PID servo control ideology, a linear segment is configured by system state variables, then a nonsingular and fast terminal dynamic sliding mode controller is developed based on the segment, and the boundary of parameter uncertainty and external disturbance is estimated by adaptive law. The new control method can realize accurate control of the position and speed. Meanwhile, the chattering in sliding mode is greatly attenuated. Simulation results show that the new sliding mode servo control method is feasible, and can improve the robustness and accuracy of the servo platform.%为提高捷联导航系统中的单轴滚转稳定伺服平台鲁棒性和控制精度,提出了一种基于自适应非奇异快速终端的动态滑模控制方法。介绍了单轴滚转稳定伺服平台原理,分析自适应非奇异快速终端滑模控制方法以及存在稳态误差和抖振问题。在借鉴三环PID伺服控制思想基础上,首先将状态变量构成线性滑模面,在该线性滑模面上形成非奇异快速终端滑模控制器,并采用自适应律来估计扰动上限。能够实现位置和速度的精确控制,大大削弱滑模抖振。仿真结果表明,基于自适应非奇异快速终端速度动态滑模控制方法合理可行,提高了单轴滚转稳定平台收敛速度、鲁棒性和控制精度。

    Full Text Available In this paper we present the design of a sliding mode controller for attitude control of spacecraft actuated by three orthogonal reaction wheels. The equilibrium of the closed loop system is proved to be asymptotically stable in the sense of Lyapunov. Due to cases where spacecraft do not have angular velocity measurements, an estimator for the generalized velocity is derived and asymptotic stability is proven for the observer. The approach is tested on an experimental platform with a sphere shaped Autonomous Underwater Vehicle SATellite: AUVSAT, developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

    2014-06-01

    This paper addresses the case of physiological states reconstruction in a small region of the brain under modeling uncertainties. The misunderstood coupling between the cerebral blood volume and the oxygen extraction fraction has lead to a partial knowledge of the so-called balloon model describing the hemodynamic behavior of the brain. To overcome this difficulty, a High Order Sliding Mode observer is applied to the balloon system, where the unknown coupling is considered as an internal perturbation. The effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated through a set of synthetic data that mimic fMRI experiments.

  11. Decentralized sliding mode control of a building using MR dampers

    This paper presents the structural control results of shaking table tests for a steel frame structure in order to evaluate the performance of a number of proposed semi-active control algorithms using multiple magnetorheological (MR) dampers. The test structure is a six-story steel frame equipped with MR dampers. Four different cases of damper arrangement in the structure are selected for the control study. In experimental tests, the El Centro earthquake and Kobe earthquake ground motion data are used as excitations. Further, several decentralized sliding mode control algorithms are developed in this paper specifically for applications of MR dampers in building structures. Various control algorithms are used for the semi-active control studies, including the proposed decentralized sliding mode control (DSMC), LQR control, and passive-on and passive-off control. Each control algorithm is formulated specifically for the use of MR dampers installed in building structures. Additionally, each algorithm uses measurements of the device velocity and device drift for the determination of the control action to ensure that the algorithm can be implemented in a physical structure. The performance of each algorithm is evaluated based on the results of shaking table tests, and the advantages of each algorithm are compared and discussed. The reduction of story drifts and floor accelerations throughout the structure is examined

    Hallaj, Mohammad Amin Alandi; Assadian, Nima

    2016-08-01

    This paper investigates the control of tethered satellite formation actuated by electromagnetic dipoles and reaction wheels using the robust sliding mode control technique. Generating electromagnetic forces and moments by electric current coils provides an attractive control actuation alternative for tethered satellite system due to the advantages of no propellant consumption and no obligatory rotational motion. Based on a dumbbell model of tethered satellite in which the flexibility and mass of the tether is neglected, the equations of motion in Cartesian coordinate are derived. In this model, the J2 perturbation is taken into account. The far-field and mid-field models of electromagnetic forces and moments of two satellites on each other and the effect of the Earth's magnetic field are presented. A robust sliding mode controller is designed for precise trajectory tracking purposes and to deal with the electromagnetic force and moment uncertainties and external disturbances due to the Earth's gravitational and magnetic fields inaccuracy. Numerical simulation results are presented to validate the effectiveness of the developed controller and its superiority over the linear controller.

    Oscar Barambones

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available The efficiency of the wind power conversions systems can be greatly improved using an appropriate control algorithm. In this work, a sliding mode control for variable speed wind turbine that incorporates a doubly fed induction generator is described. The electrical system incorporates a wound rotor induction machine with back-to-back three phase power converter bridges between its rotor and the grid. In the presented design the so-called vector control theory is applied, in order to simplify the electrical equations. The proposed control scheme uses stator flux-oriented vector control for the rotor side converter bridge control and grid voltage vector control for the grid side converter bridge control. The stability analysis of the proposed sliding mode controller under disturbances and parameter uncertainties is provided using the Lyapunov stability theory. Finally simulated results show, on the one hand, that the proposed controller provides high-performance dynamic characteristics, and on the other hand, that this scheme is robust with respect to the uncertainties that usually appear in the real systems.

  1. A Neuro-fuzzy-sliding Mode Controller Using Nonlinear Sliding Surface Applied to the Coupled Tanks System

    Ahcene Boubakir; Fares Boudjema; Salim Labiod

    2009-01-01

    The aim of this paper is to develop a neuro-fuzzy-sliding mode controller (NFSMC) with a nonlinear sliding surface for a coupled tank system.The main purpose is to eliminate the chattering phenomenon and to overcome the problem of the equivalent control computation.A first-order nonlinear sliding surface is presented,on which the developed sliding mode controller (SMC) is based.Mathematical proof for the stability and convergence of the system is presented.In order to reduce the chattering in SMC,a fixed boundary layer around the switch surface is used.Within the boundary layer,where the fuzzy logic control is applied,the chattering phenomenon,which is inherent in a sliding mode control,is avoided by smoothing the switch signal.Outside the boundary,the sliding mode control is applied to drive the system states into the boundary layer.Moreover,to compute the equivalent controller,a feed-forward neural network (NN) is used.The weights of the net are updated such that the corrective control term of the NFSMC goes to zero.Then,this NN also alleviates the chattering phenomenon because a big gain in the corrective control term produces a more serious chattering than a small gain.Experimental studies carried out on a coupled tank system indicate that the proposed approach is good for control applications.

  2. Robust fuzzy control for stochastic Markovian jumping systems via sliding mode method

    Chen, Bei; Jia, Tinggang; Niu, Yugang

    2016-07-01

    This paper considers the problem of sliding mode control for stochastic Markovian jumping systems by means of fuzzy method. The Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy stochastic model subject to state-dependent noise is presented. A key feature in this work is to remove the restricted condition that each local system model had to share the same input channel, which is usually assumed in some existing results. The integral sliding surface is constructed for every mode and the connections among various sliding surfaces are established via a set of coupled matrices. Moreover, the present sliding mode controller including the transition rates of modes can cope with the effect of Markovian switching. It is shown that both the reachability of sliding surfaces and the stability of sliding mode dynamics can be ensured. Finally, numerical simulation results are given.

    N. K. Yadav

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper is concerned with the problems of stability analysis and stabilization control design for a class of discrete-time T-S fuzzy systems with state-delay for multi-input and multi-output. The nonlinear fuzzy controller helps to overcome the problems of the ill - defined model of the systems, which are creating the undesirable performance. . Here sliding surface is being designed for error function of nonlinear system and sliding mode control is being designed here. The switching surface is being proven for its asymptotic stability. The generated error signal and change of error signal will be utilized for application heuristic knowledge to design the rule base in the fuzzy logic control and fuzzy logic controller is designed here. The proposed technique also brings in a systematic approach to the fuzzy logic control, thus overcoming lots of heuristics that were in vogue with earlier fuzzy logic applications. Fuzzy logic control has been applied to a second order model of a roll autopilot. It has been found that the proposed scheme is robust and works satisfactorily even when parameters are perturbed as much as fifteen percent of their geometric mean value. This designed algorithm will be more effective for highly unstable nonlinear systems such as aerospace system.

    2016-01-01

    The key attribute of a Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) system is its ability to maintain overall system stability and acceptable performance in the face of faults and failures within the feedback system. In this book Integral Sliding Mode (ISM) Control Allocation (CA) schemes for FTC are described, which have the potential to maintain close to nominal fault-free performance (for the entire system response), in the face of actuator faults and even complete failures of certain actuators. Broadly an ISM controller based around a model of the plant with the aim of creating a nonlinear fault tolerant feedback controller whose closed-loop performance is established during the design process. The second approach involves retro-fitting an ISM scheme to an existing feedback controller to introduce fault tolerance. This may be advantageous from an industrial perspective, because fault tolerance can be introduced without changing the existing control loops. A high fidelity benchmark model of a large transport aircraft is u...

    2001-07-01

    This paper presents an estimation method for vehicle longitudinal dynamics, particularly the tractive/braking force. The estimation can be used to detect a critical driving situation to improve security. It can be used also in several vehicle control systems. The main characteristics of the vehicle longitudinal dynamics were taken into account in the model used to design an observer and computer simulations. The state variables are the angular wheel velocity, vehicle velocity and the longitudinal tire force. The proposed differential equation of the tractive/braking force is derived using the concept of relaxation length. The observer designed is based on the sliding mode approach using only the angular wheel velocity measurement. The proposed method of estimation is verified through a one-wheel simulation model with a ''Magic formula'' tire model. Simulations results show an excellent reconstruction of the tire force.

  6. Speed Synchronization of web winding System with Sliding Mode Control

    Hachemi Glaoui

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available A continuous web winding system is a large-scale, complex interconnected dynamic system with numerous tension zones to transport the web while processing it. There are two control schemes for large-scale system control: the centralized scheme and the decentralized scheme. Centralized control is the traditional control method, which considers all the information about the system to be a single dynamic model and design a control system for this model. A speed synchronization control strategy for multiple induction motors, based on adjacent cross-coupling control structure, is developed by employing total sliding mode control method. The proposed control strategy is to stabilize speed tracking of each induction motor while synchronizing its speed with the speed of the other motors so as to make speed synchronization error amongst induction motors converge to zero. The global stability and the convergence of the designed controller are proved by using Lyapunov method. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

  7. Integral Sliding Mode Control Design for Electronic Throttle Valve System

    Shibly Ahmed AL-Samarraie

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available One of the major components in an automobile engine is the throttle valve part. It is used to keep up with emissions and fuel efficiency low. Design a control system to the throttle valve is newly common requirement trend in automotive technology. The non-smoothness nonlinearity in throttle valve model are due to the friction model and the nonlinear spring, the uncertainty in system parameters and non-satisfying the matching condition are the main obstacles when designing a throttle plate controller. In this work, the theory of the Integral Sliding Mode Control (ISMC is utilized to design a robust controller for the Electronic Throttle Valve (ETV system. From the first instant, the electronic throttle valve dynamics is represented by the nominal system model, this model is not affected by system parameters uncertainty and the non-smooth nonlinearities. This is a consequence of applying the integral sliding mode control. The ISMC consists of two part; the first is the nominal control which is used to control the nominal system, while the second is a discontinuous part which is used to eliminate the effects of the parameters uncertainty and the non-smooth nonlinearities from system model. These features for the ISMC are proved mathematically and demonstrated numerically via seven numerical simulations and for different desired trajectories. The simulation results clarify that for different system parameters, the ETV behaves as a nominal system. This enables to freely and precisely select the system response characteristics and the time required for the throttle angle to reach the desired value. Moreover the ability to deal with the chattering problem is demonstrated through the worked simulation tests, where the chattering is eliminated via approximating the signum function by arc tan function.

  8. Functional Based Adaptive and Fuzzy Sliding Controller for Non-Autonomous Active Suspension System

    Huang, Shiuh-Jer; Chen, Hung-Yi

    In this paper, an adaptive sliding controller is developed for controlling a vehicle active suspension system. The functional approximation technique is employed to substitute the unknown non-autonomous functions of the suspension system and release the model-based requirement of sliding mode control algorithm. In order to improve the control performance and reduce the implementation problem, a fuzzy strategy with online learning ability is added to compensate the functional approximation error. The update laws of the functional approximation coefficients and the fuzzy tuning parameters are derived from the Lyapunov theorem to guarantee the system stability. The proposed controller is implemented on a quarter-car hydraulic actuating active suspension system test-rig. The experimental results show that the proposed controller suppresses the oscillation amplitude of the suspension system effectively.

    This paper considers incipient sensor fault detection issue for a class of nonlinear systems with "observer unmatched" uncertainties. A particular fault detection sliding mode observer is designed for the augmented system formed by the original system and incipient sensor faults. The designed parameters are obtained using LMI and line filter techniques to guarantee that the generated residuals are robust to uncertainties and that sliding motion is not destroyed by faults. Then, three levels of novel adaptive thresholds are proposed based on the reduced order sliding mode dynamics, which effectively improve incipient sensor faults detectability. Case study of on the traction system in China Railway High-speed is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed incipient senor faults detection schemes. PMID:27156675

The control principle is based on sliding-mode control combined with space vector modulation technique. The sliding-mode control contributes to the robustness of induction motor drives, and the space vector modulation improves the torque, flux, and current steady-state performance by reducing the ripple. The Lyapunov direct method is used to ensure the reaching and sustaining of sliding mode and stability of the control system. The performance of the proposed system is compared with those of conventional sliding-mode controller and classical PI controller. Finally, computer simulation results show that the proposed control scheme provides robust dynamic characteristics with low torque ripple. PMID:16294775

  12. Second-order sliding mode fault-tolerant control of heat recovery steam generator boiler in combined cycle power plants

    Power generation plants are intrinsically complex systems due to their numerous internal components. Higher energy efficiency in power plants is now achieved through employing combined cycles. In this article, an adaptive robust Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) is designed to overcome the faults in Heat Recovery Steam Generator boilers (HRSG boilers) as one of the main parts of a combined cycle plant. On condition that a fault occurs in the HRSG boiler, the control system must be able to reconfigure its parameters to maintain the admissible thresholds in dynamic variables such as drum pressure, steam temperature, and drum water level. To achieve good performance for the boiler, the proposed adaptive robust SMC shall conquer the effects of faults and uncertainties by estimating their upper bounds adaptively, and force the outputs of the multivariable boiler to track the outputs of a desired multivariable reference model. Manipulating a suitable control input and using second-order sliding mode control strategy, the output tracking error slides to zero on a PID sliding surface. Besides tracking, the controlled boiler tolerates faults in system matrix, faults in input matrix, and external disturbance signal. Numerical simulations confirm the effectiveness of the proposed FTC (Fault-Tolerant Control) system for an uncertain non-minimum phase HRSG boiler. Highlights: ► This paper proposes a PID-based adaptive second-order sliding mode controller (SMC). ► SMC is robust to actuator and sensor faults and tracks outputs of a reference system. ► SMC is used in fault tolerant control of a heat recovery steam generator boilers. ► Boiler and reference system have different number of states and inputs. ► Performance of SMC is investigated with different faults scenarios in simulations.

    Full Text Available Recently, the technological development of manipulator robot increases very quickly and provides a positive impact to human life. The implementation of the manipulator robot technology offers more efficiency and high performance for several human’s tasks. In reality, efforts published in this context are focused on implementing control algorithms with already preprogrammed desired trajectories (passive robots case or trajectory generation based on feedback sensors (active robots case. However, gesture based control robot can be considered as another channel of system control which is not widely discussed. This paper focuses on a Kinect-based real-time interactive control system implementation. Based on LabVIEW integrated development environment (IDE, a developed human-machine-interface (HMI allows user to control in real time a Lynxmotion robotic arm. The Kinect software development kit (SDK provides a tool to keep track of human body skeleton and abstract it into 3-dimensional coordinates. Therefore, the Kinect sensor is integrated into our control system to detect the different user joints coordinates. The Lynxmotion dynamic has been implemented in a real-time sliding mode control algorithm. The experimental results are carried out to test the effectiveness of the system, and the results verify the tracking ability, stability, and robustness.

    Van Es, Simone L; Kumar, Rakesh K; Pryor, Wendy M; Salisbury, Elizabeth L; Velan, Gary M

    2015-09-01

    To determine whether cytopathology whole slide images and virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials aid learning by postgraduate trainees, we designed a randomized crossover trial to evaluate the quantitative and qualitative impact of whole slide images and virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials compared with traditional glass slide and textbook methods of learning cytopathology. Forty-three anatomical pathology registrars were recruited from Australia, New Zealand, and Malaysia. Online assessments were used to determine efficacy, whereas user experience and perceptions of efficiency were evaluated using online Likert scales and open-ended questions. Outcomes of online assessments indicated that, with respect to performance, learning with whole slide images and virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials was equivalent to using traditional methods. High-impact learning, efficiency, and equity of learning from virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials were strong themes identified in open-ended responses. Participants raised concern about the lack of z-axis capability in the cytopathology whole slide images, suggesting that delivery of z-stacked whole slide images online may be important for future educational development. In this trial, learning cytopathology with whole slide images and virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials was found to be as effective as and perceived as more efficient than learning from glass slides and textbooks. The use of whole slide images and virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials has the potential to provide equitable access to effective learning from teaching material of consistently high quality. It also has broader implications for continuing professional development and maintenance of competence and quality assurance in specialist practice. PMID:26093936

    2001-01-01

    We propose a new sliding mode control scheme for a class of uncertain time-delay chaotic systems. It is shown that a linear time invariant system with the desired system dynamics is used as a reference model for the output of a time-delay chaotic system to track. A sliding mode controller is then designed to drive the output of the time-delay chaotic system to track the desired linear system. On the sliding mode, the output of the controlled time-delay chaotic system can behave like the desired linear system. A simulation example is given in support of the proposed control scheme.

    编码器的使用降低了永磁同步电机矢量控制系统的可靠性和耐用性,且某些场合无法安装编码器。理论上可以通过永磁同步电机的电压和电流实时计算出电机的转速和转子位置角度。该文提出了一种基于双滑模模型参考自适应系统(model reference adaptive system,MRAS)的永磁同步电机无位置传感器控制策略。其中,参考模型为永磁电机本身,可调模型为永磁电机电流模型。利用两模型输出的偏差构造了2个滑模面,将通过滑模算法获得的等效控制进行运算即可获得电机的转速和转子位置角度,并分别用于矢量控制系统的速度调节和坐标变换。在理论分析的基础上进行了仿真研究,仿真结果表明所提出的观测方法是有效的。%The use of encoders reduces the ruggedness and reliability for the vector control system of permanent magnet synchronous motor; Also, in some cases the mounting of the encoders is a major problem. In theory, speed and rotor position angle of permanent magnet synchronous motor can in real-time be calculated by voltage and current. This paper proposes a sensorless speed control strategy for a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) based on a new double sliding-mode model reference adaptive system, and the PMSM itself is selected as the reference model and its current model as the adjustable model. Two slide-mode surfaces are formulated according to two models’ output errors. Equivalent current is obtained by sliding mode, and rotor position and speed are achieved by a certain algorithm. The rotor position and speed obtained are used respectively to partake coordinate transformation and speed control in sensorless vector control of PMSM. The simulation research has been done on the basis of theoretical analysis, and shows that the proposed method is effective.

    2003-12-01

    Full Text Available An adaptive gain sliding observer for uncertain parameter nonlinear systems together with an adaptive gain sliding controller is proposed in this paper. It considered nonlinear, SISO affine systems, with uncertainties in steady-state functions and parameters. A further parameter term, adaptively updated, has been introduced in steady state space model of the controlled system, in order to obtain useful information despite fault detection and isolation. By using of the sliding observer with adaptive gain, the robustness to uncertainties is increased and the parameters adaptively updated can provide useful information in fault detection. Also, the state estimation error is bounded accordingly with bound limits of the uncertainties. The both of them, the sliding adaptive observer and sliding controller are designed to fulfill the attractiveness condition of its corresponding switching surface. An application to a single arm with flexible joint robot is presented. In order to alleviate chattering, a parameterized tangent hyperbolic has been used as switching function, instead of pure relay one, to the observer and the controller. Also, the gains of the switching functions, to the sliding observer and sliding controller are adaptively updated depending of estimation error and tracking error, respectively. By the using adaptive gains, the transient and tracking response can be improved.

    Liu, Xiangjie; Han, Yaozhen

    2014-11-01

    Considering a class of MIMO uncertain nonlinear system, a novel finite time stable control algorithm is proposed based on higher-order sliding mode concept. The higher-order sliding mode control problem of MIMO nonlinear system is firstly transformed into finite time stability problem of multivariable system. Then continuous control law, which can guarantee finite time stabilization of nominal integral chain system, is employed. The second-order sliding mode is used to overcome the system uncertainties. High frequency chattering phenomenon of sliding mode is greatly weakened, and the arbitrarily fast convergence is reached. The finite time stability is proved based on the quadratic form Lyapunov function. Examples concerning the triple integral chain system with uncertainty and the hovercraft trajectory tracking are simulated respectively to verify the effectiveness and the robustness of the proposed algorithm.

    The paper pertains to model validation and novel higher order sliding mode controller design for a nuclear research reactor. Sliding mode controllers for nuclear reactors were reported before but higher order sliding mode controllers have added advantage of reduced chattering. As a first step of model development a simulation model of control rod drive mechanism (CRDM) has been developed using SIMULINK.

The nonlinear model of PARR-1 has been tuned and validated with experimental data. This model has been subsequently used for higher order sliding mode controller design and performance evaluation. Certain parameter values have also been recalculated to ensure model accuracy. Based on the validated model a robust nonlinear controller for controlling output power by manipulating control rod position has been developed and simulated. The new controller showed improved performance as compared to the classical PID controller.

    2015-01-01

    It is well established that the sliding mode control strategy provides an effective and robust method of controlling the deterministic system due to its well-known invariance property to a class of bounded disturbance and parameter variations. Advances in microcomputer technologies have made digital control increasingly popular among the researchers worldwide. And that led to the study of discrete-time sliding mode control design and its implementation. This brief presents, a method for multi-rate frequency shaped sliding mode controller design based on switching and non-switching type of reaching law. In this approach, the frequency dependent compensator dynamics are introduced through a frequency-shaped sliding surface by assigning frequency dependent weighing matrices in a linear quadratic regulator (LQR) design procedure. In this way, the undesired high frequency dynamics or certain frequency disturbance can be eliminated. The states are implicitly obtained by measuring the output at a faster rate than th...

  17. Universal fuzzy integral sliding-mode controllers for stochastic nonlinear systems.

    Gao, Qing; Liu, Lu; Feng, Gang; Wang, Yong

    2014-12-01

    In this paper, the universal integral sliding-mode controller problem for the general stochastic nonlinear systems modeled by Itô type stochastic differential equations is investigated. One of the main contributions is that a novel dynamic integral sliding mode control (DISMC) scheme is developed for stochastic nonlinear systems based on their stochastic T-S fuzzy approximation models. The key advantage of the proposed DISMC scheme is that two very restrictive assumptions in most existing ISMC approaches to stochastic fuzzy systems have been removed. Based on the stochastic Lyapunov theory, it is shown that the closed-loop control system trajectories are kept on the integral sliding surface almost surely since the initial time, and moreover, the stochastic stability of the sliding motion can be guaranteed in terms of linear matrix inequalities. Another main contribution is that the results of universal fuzzy integral sliding-mode controllers for two classes of stochastic nonlinear systems, along with constructive procedures to obtain the universal fuzzy integral sliding-mode controllers, are provided, respectively. Simulation results from an inverted pendulum example are presented to illustrate the advantages and effectiveness of the proposed approaches. PMID:24718584

  18. Evaluation Performance of IC Engine: Linear Tunable Gain Computed Torque Controller vs. Sliding Mode Controller

    Shahnaz Tayebi Haghighi

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available Design a nonlinear controller for second order nonlinear uncertain dynamical systems (e.g., internal combustion engine is one of the most important challenging works. This paper focuses on the comparative study between two important nonlinear controllers namely; computed torque controller (CTC and sliding mode controller (SMC and applied to internal combustion (IC engine in presence of uncertainties. In order to provide high performance nonlinear methodology, sliding mode controller and computed torque controller are selected. Pure SMC and CTC can be used to control of partly known nonlinear dynamic parameters of IC engine. Pure sliding mode controller and computed torque controller have difficulty in handling unstructured model uncertainties. To solve this problem applied linear error-based tuning method to sliding mode controller and computed torque controller for adjusting the sliding surface gain (λ and linear inner loop gain (K. Since the sliding surface gain (λ and linear inner loop gain (K are adjusted by linear error-based tuning method. In this research new λ and new K are obtained by the previous λ and K multiple gains updating factor(α. The results demonstrate that the error-based linear SMC and CTC are model-based controllers which works well in certain and uncertain system. These controllers have acceptable performance in presence of uncertainty.

  19. Composite Sliding Mode Control for a Free-Floating Space Rigid-Flexible Coupling Manipulator System

    Wang Congqing

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available The flexible space manipulator is a highly nonlinear and coupled dynamic system. This paper proposes a novel composite sliding mode control to deal with the vibration suppression and trajectory tracking of a free‐floating space rigid‐flexible coupling manipulator with a rigid payload. First, the dynamic equations of this system are established by using Lagrange and assumed mode methods and in the meantime this dynamic modelling allows consideration of the modelling errors, the external disturbance and the vibration damping of a flexible link. Then, in modal space, the problems of the manipulator system’s trajectory tracking and the vibration suppression are discussed by using the composite control approach, which combines a non‐ singular terminal sliding mode control (NTSMC with an active vibration suppression control (AVSC. The NTSMC uses a fuzzy logic outputinstead ofthe symbol item, which smoothes the control signal, thereby inhibiting the chattering of the sliding mode control. Compared with common sliding mode control (SMC, the approach not only can reduce the chattering of the sliding mode control, but also can eliminate the singular phenomenon of the system’s control input. In addition, it can assure the trajectory tracking and the vibration suppression. Many space missions can benefit from this modelling system, such as autonomous docking of satellites, rescuing and satellite servicing. Finally, the numerical simulations were carried out, which confirmed the effectiveness of these methods.

    Full Text Available In this paper, Intelligent Sliding Mode Control of chaos in a memristor- based Chua’s oscillator is investigated. In order to gain stabilization and tracking of a sinusoidal input, an appropriate sliding surface is proposed and sliding gain is tuned. Also, to avoid the chattering phenomenon in traditional sliding mode controller, and to reduce the hitting time of the controlled system, an especial genetic algorithm optimization method is suggested. By defining a new objective function and searching for optimal the controller parameters the convergence time and chattering are reduced considerably. The usefulness of the proposed controller with intelligent tuning method for chaos control of memristorbased oscillators is demonstrated in memristor- based Chua's circuit.

  4. Frictional sliding modes along an interface between identical elastic plates subject to shear impact loading

    Coker, D; Needleman, A; Rosakis, A J

    2004-01-01

    Frictional sliding along an interface between two identical isotropic elastic plates under impact shear loading is investigated experimentally and numerically. The plates are held together by a compressive stress and one plate is subject to edge impact near the interface. The experiments exhibit both a crack-like and a pulse-like mode of sliding. Plane stress finite element calculations modeling the experimental configuration are carried out, with the interface characterized by a rate and state dependent frictional law. For low values of the initial compressive stress and impact velocity, sliding occurs in a crack-like mode. For higher values of the initial compressive stress and/or impact velocity, sliding takes place in a pulse-like mode. A variety of sliding modes are obtained in the calculations depending on the impact velocity, the initial compressive stress and the values of interface variables. One pulse-like mode involves well-separated pulses with the pulse amplitude increasing with propagation dista...

    2014-05-01

    This paper deals with the fault ride-through capability assessment of a doubly fed induction generator-based wind turbine using a high-order sliding mode control. Indeed, it has been recently suggested that sliding mode control is a solution of choice to the fault ride-through problem. In this context, this paper proposes a second-order sliding mode as an improved solution that handle the classical sliding mode chattering problem. Indeed, the main and attractive features of high-order sliding modes are robustness against external disturbances, the grids faults in particular, and chattering-free behavior (no extra mechanical stress on the wind turbine drive train). Simulations using the NREL FAST code on a 1.5-MW wind turbine are carried out to evaluate ride-through performance of the proposed high-order sliding mode control strategy in case of grid frequency variations and unbalanced voltage sags.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available In order to improve the photoelectric tracking platform tracking performance, an integral sliding mode control strategy based on inverse system decoupling method is proposed. The electromechanical dynamic model is established based on multi-body system theory and Newton-Euler method. The coupled multi-input multi-output (MIMO nonlinear system is transformed into two pseudo-linear single-input single-output (SISO subsystems based on the inverse system method. An integral sliding mode control scheme is designed for the decoupled pseudo-linear system. In order to eliminate system chattering phenomenon caused by traditional sign function in sliding-mode controller, the sign function is replaced by the Sigmoid function. Simulation results show that the proposed decoupling method and the control strategy can restrain the influences of internal coupling and disturbance effectively, and has better robustness and higher tracking accuracy.

The design method of switching function in integral sliding mode control, nonlinear derivation coefficient and controllers of DI-SVSC is presented respectively. Simulation shows that the control approach is of nice robustness and improves velocity tracking accuracy considerably.

  9. Decoupled thermal control for space station furnace facility using sliding mode techniques

    Jackson, Mark E.; Shtessel, Yuri B.

    1996-03-01

    The Space Station Furnace Facility (SSFF) provides the necessary core systems to operate various material processing furnaces. The Thermal Control System (TCS) is defined as one of the core systems and its function is to collect excess heat from furnaces and to provide precise cold temperature control of components and of certain furnace zones. Physical interconnection of parallel thermal control subsystems through a common pump implies the description of the whole TCS by coupled nonlinear differential equations in flow and pressure. The paper formulates the system equations and develops the sliding mode controllers that cause the interconnected subsystems to operate in the local sliding modes, resulting in control system invariance to interaction disturbances. The desired de-coupled flow rate profile tracking is achieved by optimization of the local linear sliding mode equations. Extensive digital simulation results are presented to show the flow rate tracking robustness and invariance to plant nonlinearities and variations of the pump pressure supplied to the controlled subsystems.

    This paper addresses the tracking problem of a class of multi-agent systems under uncertain communication environments which has been modelled by a finite number of constant Laplacian matrices together with their corresponding scheduling functions. Sliding mode control method is applied to solve this nonlinear tracking problem under a time-varying topology. The controller of each tracking agent has been designed by using only its own and neighbours' information. Sufficient conditions for the existence of a sliding mode control tracking strategy have been provided by the solvability of linear matrix inequalities. At the end of this work, numerical simulations are employed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed sliding mode control tracking strategy.

    Zinelaabidine Boudjema

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Traditional vector control structures which include proportional-integral (PI regulator for the speed of a doubly fed induction motor (DFIM driven have some disadvantages such as parameter tuning complications, mediocre dynamic performances and reduced robustness. Thus, based on the analysis of the mathematical model of a DFIM supplied by two indirect inverters, this paper addresses a nonlinear control algorithm based on high order sliding mode. The conventional sliding mode control has large chattering on the electromagnetic torque developed by the DFIM. In order to solve this problem, the second order sliding mode technique is used. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed method especially in chattering-free behavior, response to sudden load torque variations and robustness against machine parameters variations.

    Full Text Available This paper considers the trajectory tracking control of linear inverted pendulum (IP system. First the linearized model of IP is derived to facilitate the control design. To avoid non robust reaching phase, integral sliding mode control (ISMC has been proposed but single variable case is tested. Linear IP is a multivariable system having angle of pendulum and position of cart are two variables to be controlled. In control design, the LQR control is designed as a nominal control to get the desired trajectory. Then discontinuous control using integral sliding mode(ISM is introduced to get desired trajectory tracking in the presence of uncertainties. This control is robust to the model uncertainties and disturbances during entire motion of the states. The simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness of proposed control scheme. The results are compared with LQR control to show the integral sliding mode control is having better tracking performance in the presence of uncertainties.

    Full Text Available This paper presents the study of a variable speed wind energy conversion system (WECS using a Wound Field Synchronous Generator (WFSG based on a Fuzzy sliding mode control (FSMC applied to achieve control of active and reactive powers exchanged between the stator of the WFSG and the grid to ensure a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT of a wind energy conversion system. However the principal drawback of the sliding mode, is the chattering effect which characterized by torque ripple, this phenomena is undesirable and harmful for the machines, it generates noises and additional forces of torsion on the machine shaft. A direct fuzzy logic controller is designed and the sliding mode controller is added to compensate the fuzzy approximation errors. The simulation results clearly indicate the effectiveness and validity of the proposed method, in terms of convergence, time and precision.

  14. Chattering-free fuzzy sliding-mode control strategy for uncertain chaotic systems

    This paper proposes a chattering-free fuzzy sliding-mode control (FSMC) strategy for uncertain chaotic systems. A fuzzy logic control is used to replace the discontinuous sign function of the reaching law in traditional sliding-mode control (SMC), and hence a control input without chattering is obtained in the chaotic systems with uncertainties. Base on the Lyapunov stability theory, we address the design schemes of integration fuzzy sliding-mode control, where the reaching law is proposed by a set of linguistic rules and the control input is chattering free. The Genesio chaotic system is used to test the proposed control strategy and the simulation results show the FSMC not only can control the uncertain chaotic behaviors to a desired state without oscillator very fast, but also the switching function is smooth without chattering. This result implies that this strategy is feasible and effective for chaos control

The intelligent extension theory is used to reduce input saturation and high frequency switching in sliding mode strategy, as well as to increase the efficiency and response speed. The experimental results show that the efficiency of the extension SMS (ESMS is 5% higher than in traditional SMS, and the response is 0.5 s faster.

    2006-01-01

    A new variable structure control algorithm based on sliding mode prediction for a class of discrete-time nonlinear systems is presented. By employing a special model to predict future sliding mode value, and combining feedback correction and receding horizon optimization methods which are extensively applied on predictive control strategy, a discrete-time variable structure control law is constructed. The closed-loop systems are proved to have robustness to uncertainties with unspecified boundaries. Numerical simulation and pendulum experiment results illustrate that the closed-loop systems possess desired performance, such as strong robustness, fast convergence and chattering elimination.

    Kalsi, Karanjit; Hui, Stefen; Zak, Stanislaw

    2011-06-29

    Sliding-mode observers are used to construct unknown input estimators. Then, these unknown input estimators are combined with sensor fault estimation schemes into one architecture that employs two sliding-mode observers for simultaneously estimating the plant’s actuator faults (part of the unknown input) and detecting sensor faults. Closed form expressions are presented for the estimates of unknown inputs and sensor faults. A benchmark example of a controlled inverted pendulum system from the literature is utilized in the simulation study. The study shows that the observers analyzed in this paper generate good estimates of the unknown input and sensor faults signals in noisy environments for nonlinear plants.

    Xuzhong Wu

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the finite-time attitude control problem for reentry vehicle with redundant actuators in consideration of planet uncertainties and external disturbances. Firstly, feedback linearization technique is used to cancel the nonlinearities of equations of motion to construct a basic mode for attitude controller. Secondly, two kinds of time-varying sliding mode control methods with disturbance observer are integrated with the basic mode in order to enhance the control performance and system robustness. One method is designed based on boundary layer technique and the other is a novel second-order sliding model control method. The finite-time stability analyses of both resultant closed-loop systems are carried out. Furthermore, after attitude controller produces the torque commands, an optimization control allocation approach is introduced to allocate them into aerodynamic surface deflections and on-off reaction control system thrusts. Finally, the numerical simulation results demonstrate that both of the time-varying sliding mode control methods are robust to uncertainties and disturbances without chattering phenomenon. Moreover, the proposed second-order sliding mode control method possesses better control accuracy.

    2009-05-15

    A novel experimentally motivated method in order to design a family of easy-to-implement sliding-mode controllers for power converters is proposed. Two main results are presented. First, the relation between sliding-mode control and average control is reinterpreted so that the limitation of the switching frequency for the closed-loop system is achieved in a more direct way than other methods so far reported in the literature. For this purpose, a class of sliding surfaces which makes the associated equivalent control be the system average control is proposed. Second, the achievement of a constant switching frequency in the controlled system is assured without requiring the sliding-mode-based controller to be modified, unlike most previous works. As a result, the proposed sliding surfaces-type can be directly implemented via a pulse-width modulator. The control methodology is implemented for the voltage control in a boost converter prototype in which the load is considered unknown. Experimental results confirm high performance and robustness under parameters variation. Furthermore, the solution proposed is easy to implement and well-suited for other power converters. (author)

  2. Development of a Novel Fractional Order Sliding Mode Controller for a Gun

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available To solve the nonlinearity phenomenon of a Gun Control System (GCS, a novel Fractional order Sliding Mode Control (FoSMC strategy is proposed in this study. By inducing the fractional order calculus, a Fractional Order PID (FOPID type sliding surface is especially designed and consequently an equivalent control discipline with fractional order dynamics is induced. The saturation function is employed as the switch function. By numerical simulation, the dynamic characteristics of the FoSMC based control system are analyzed and compared with Conventional Sliding Mode Control (CSMC system. The results demonstrate that the FoSMC system could reach up to the equilibrium state more smoothly, which shall significantly suppress the inherent chatter effects. Besides, the FoSMC based gun control system is of high response rate, better positioning accuracy and high robustness, which is suitable for fast, smooth and accurate adjustments of the gun.

  3. A novel sliding mode nonlinear proportional-integral control scheme for controlling chaos

    Yu Dong-Chuan; Wu Ai-Guo; Yang Chao-Ping

    2005-01-01

    A novel sliding mode nonlinear proportional-integral control (SMNPIC) scheme is proposed for driving a class of time-variant chaotic systems with uncertainty to arbitrarily desired trajectory with high accuracy. The SMNPIC differs from the previous sliding mode techniques in the sense that a nonlinear proportional-integral action of sliding function is involved in control law, so that both the steady-state error and the high-frequency chattering are reduced,and meanwhile, robustness and fastness are guaranteed. In addition, the proposed SMNPIC actually acts as a class of nonlinear proportional-integral-differential (PID) controller, in which the tracking error and its derivatives up to (n-1)thorder as well as the integral of tracking error are considered, so that more useful information than traditional PID can be implemented and better dynamic and static characteristics can obtained. Its good performance for chaotic control is illustrated through a During-Holmes system with uncertainty.

    Full Text Available The synchronization of nonlinear uncertain chaotic systems is investigated. We propose a sliding mode state observer scheme which combines the sliding mode control with observer theory and apply it into the uncertain chaotic system with unknown parameters and bounded interference. Based on Lyapunov stability theory, the constraints of synchronization and proof are given. This method not only can realize the synchronization of chaotic systems, but also identify the unknown parameters and obtain the correct parameter estimation. Otherwise, the synchronization of chaotic systems with unknown parameters and bounded external disturbances is robust by the design of the sliding surface. Finally, numerical simulations on Liu chaotic system with unknown parameters and disturbances are carried out. Simulation results show that this synchronization and parameter identification has been totally achieved and the effectiveness is verified very well.

Firstly, we make use of the advantages of cerebella model articulation controller, self-organizing neural networks and wavelet function in developing the SOWCMAC to ensure the fast learning ability and desirable generalization ability. Next, we design two kinds of improved integral terminal sliding surfaces and express their convergence time in the analytical form. With the SOWCMAC and improved integral terminal sliding surfaces, we develop the robust adaptive nonsingular terminal controller for the uncertain nonlinear systems. The adaptive robust term can offset the impact of the approximation errors for the system. The stability of

    Chattering in the control signal is a significant problem in sliding mode control (SMC). The boundary layer approach is one of the many modifications proposed in the literature to avoid the chattering. In this approach, instead of the discontinuous sliding mode control, a continuous feedback control law is employed in a boundary layer around the sliding surface.

  7. Synchronizing Spatiotemporal Chaos via a Composite Disturbance Observer-Based Sliding Mode Control

    Congyan Chen

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The sliding mode control schemes are investigated to synchronize two spatiotemporal chaotic systems, which are two arrays of a large number of coupled chaotic oscillators. Firstly, sliding mode manifolds with the desired performance are designed. The asymptotic convergence to the origin of the synchronization errors is also proved. However, the terms from parameter fluctuations in equivalent controls are usually impossible to be measured directly. So we regard them as lumped disturbances, but, for practical application, it is difficult to obtain the upper bound of lumped disturbances in advance which often results in a conservative sliding mode control law with large control effort, causing a large amount of chattering. To reduce the chattering and improve the performance of the system, a disturbance observer is designed to estimate the lumped disturbances. A composite synchronization controller that consists of a sliding mode feedback part and a feedforward compensation part based on disturbance observer is developed. The numerical simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed methods.

  8. Decoupled Sliding Mode Control for a Novel 3-DOF Parallel Manipulator with Actuation Redundancy

    Niu Xuemei

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a decoupled nonsingular terminal sliding mode controller (DNTSMC for a novel 3-DOF parallel manipulator with actuation redundancy. According to kinematic analysis, the inverse dynamic model for a novel 3-DOF redundantly actuated parallel manipulator is formulated in the task space using Lagrangian formalism and decoupled into three entirely independent subsystems under generalized coordinates to significantly reduce system complexity. Based on the dynamic model, a decoupled sliding mode control strategy is proposed for the parallel manipulator; the idea behind this strategy is to design a nonsingular terminal sliding mode controller for each subsystem, which can drive states of three subsystems to the original equilibrium points simultaneously by two intermediate variables. Additionally, a RBF neural network is used to compensate the cross-coupling force and gravity to enhance the control precision. Simulation and experimental results show that the proposed DNTSMC can achieve better control performances compared with the conventional sliding mode controller (SMC and the DNTSMC without compensator.

  9. Design of passive fault-tolerant controllers of a quadrotor based on sliding mode theory

    Merheb Abdel-Razzak

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Abstract In this paper, sliding mode control is used to develop two passive fault tolerant controllers for an AscTec Pelican UAV quadrotor. In the first approach, a regular sliding mode controller (SMC augmented with an integrator uses the robustness property of variable structure control to tolerate partial actuator faults. The second approach is a cascaded sliding mode controller with an inner and outer SMC loops. In this configuration, faults are tolerated in the fast inner loop controlling the velocity system. Tuning the controllers to find the optimal values of the sliding mode controller gains is made using the ecological systems algorithm (ESA, a biologically inspired stochastic search algorithm based on the natural equilibrium of animal species. The controllers are tested using SIMULINK in the presence of two different types of actuator faults, partial loss of motor power affecting all the motors at once, and partial loss of motor speed. Results of the quadrotor following a continuous path demonstrated the effectiveness of the controllers, which are able to tolerate a significant number of actuator faults despite the lack of hardware redundancy in the quadrotor system. Tuning the controller using a faulty system improves further its ability to afford more severe faults. Simulation results show that passive schemes reserve their important role in fault tolerant control and are complementary to active techniques

    Full Text Available The control of Inverted Pendulum (IP is a hugely complex task. A great deal of nonlinearity is present inherently and as well as affected by the surrounding external conditions. The sliding mode controller (SMC is very robust inherently. It is used in this paper to control the IP. This paper examines the designing of sliding mode controller (SMC for a linear inverted pendulum (IP. The paper highlights the important features of the sliding mode and also throws ample lights on the designing guidelines. The paper puts special impetus on the mathematical modeling of the controller. The robustness of the design of SMC with proportional control is amply displayed with the help of simple mathematics. It gives rise to a controller which can control a highly nonlinear system like IP quite efficiently. The performance of the SMC is compared with fuzzy and PID controller. The edge this controller poses is the key aspect of this paper. External disturbances and internal inaccuracies are also introduced to the system to bring out the robustness of the controller to the fore. Background on sliding mode and the pendulum are provided. Simulation results are displayed in a vivid manner and explained suitably.

  14. Estimation of precursor concentration in a research reactor by using second order sliding mode observer

    The paper pertains to novel higher order sliding mode observer (SMO) design for estimating precursor concentration of a nuclear research reactor. The linear and nonlinear models of Pakistan Research Reactor-1 (PARR-1) have been tuned and validated with experimental data. These models are subsequently used for higher order sliding mode observer design and performance evaluation. In thermal reactors, precursor concentration is a very important reactor variable because it is responsible for delayed neutron production and finally for reactor control. Linear observers have been used in the past to estimate precursor concentration, but the bandwidth is much limited and performance degraded as the operating point is changed. The nonlinear observer can cater for this problem in a much efficient manner. In this paper a robust nonlinear observer for estimating precursor concentration has been developed by using second order sliding mode technique. The higher order sliding mode observer is efficient and has the main advantage of reduced chattering. The observer estimates the precursor concentration with the measurement of neutron flux only and the estimated value is in close agreement with the theoretically calculated value.

  15. Sliding-Mode Observer for Speed and Position Sensorless Control of Linear-PMSM

    Kazraji Saeed Masoumi

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available The paper presents a sliding-mode observer that utilizes sigmoid function for speed and position sensorless control of permanent-magnet linear synchronous motor (PMLSM. In conventional sliding mode observer method there are the chattering phenomenon and the phase lag. Thus, in order to avoid the usage of the low pass filter and the phase compensator based on back EMF, in this paper a sliding mode observer with sigmoid function for detecting the back EMF in a PMLSM is designed to estimate the speed and the position of the rotor. Most of conventional sliding mode observers use sign or saturation functions which need low pass filter in order to detect back electromotive force (back EMF. In this paper a sigmoid function is used instead of discontinuous sign function to decrease undesirable chattering phenomenon. By reducing the chattering, detecting of the back EMF can be made directly from switching signal without any low pass filter. Thus the delay time in the proposed observer is eliminated because of the low pass filter. Furthermore, there is no need to compensate phase fault in position and speed estimating of linear-PMSM. Advantages of the proposed observer have been shown by simulation with MATLAB software.

  2. Design Intelligent PID like Fuzzy Sliding Mode Controller for Spherical Motor

    Farzin Matin

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available The minimum rule base Proportional Integral Derivative (PID Fuzzy Sliding Mode Controller (SMC with application to spherical motor is presented in this research. The popularity of PID Fuzzy Sliding Mode Controller can be attributed to their robust performance in a wide range of operating conditions and partly to their functional simplicity. The process of setting of PID Fuzzy Sliding Mode Controller can be determined as an optimization task. Over the years, use of intelligent strategies for tuning of these controllers has been growing especially in nonlinear and uncertain systems. Proportional Integral Derivative methodology has three inputs and if any input is described with seven linguistic values, and any rule has three conditions, we will need 343 rules. It is too much work to write 343 rules and have lots of problem to design embedded control system e.g., Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA. In this research the PID-like fuzzy controller can be constructed as a parallel structure of a PD-like fuzzy controller and a conventional PI controller to have the minimum rule base and good trajectory follow disturbance to control of spherical motor. However Sliding Mode Controller is work based on cancelling decoupling and nonlinear terms of dynamic parameters for each direction of three degree of freedom spherical motor, this controller is work based on motor dynamic model and this technique is highly sensitive to the knowledge of all parameters of nonlinear spherical motor’s dynamic equation which caused to challenge in uncertain system. This research is used to reduce or eliminate the Sliding Mode Controller problem based on minimum rule base fuzzy logic theory to control of three degrees of freedom spherical motor system and testing of the quality of process control in the simulation environment of MATLAB/SIMULINK Simulator.

  3. Power Efficient Higher Order Sliding Mode Control of SR Motor for Speed Control Applications

    Muhammad Rafiq

    2011-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a novel scheme for speed regulation/tracking of Switched Reluctance (SR motors based on Higher-Order Sliding-Mode technique. In particular, a Second-Order Sliding-Mode Controller (SOSMC based on Super Twisting algorithm is devel-oped. Owing to the peculiar structural properties of SRM, torque produced by each motor phase is a function of phase current as well as rotor position. More importantly, unlike many other motors the polarity of the phase torque in SR motors is solely determined by the rotor position and is independent of the polarity of the applied voltage or phase current. The proposed controller takes advantage of this property and incorporates a commutation scheme which, at any time instant, selects only those motor phases for the computation of control law, which can contribute torque of the desired polarity at that instant. This feature helps in achieving the desired speed regulation/tracking objective in a power efficient manner as control efforts are applied through selective phases and counterproductive phases are left un-energized. This approach also minimizes the power loss in the motor windings thus reducing the heat generation within the motor. In order to highlight the advantages of Higher-Order Sliding-Mode controllers, a classical First-Order Sliding-Mode controller (FOSMC is also developed and applied to the same system. The comparison of the two schemes shows much reduced chattering in case of SOSMC. The performance of the proposed SOSMC controller for speed regulation is also compared with that of another sliding mode speed controller published in the literature.

  4. Hybrid Fuzzy Sliding Mode Control of a DFIG Integrated into the Network

    Belabbas Belkacem

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the study of a variable speed wind energy conversion system using a Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG based on a Fuzzy sliding mode control (FSMC applied to achieve control of active and reactive powers exchanged between the stator of the DFIG and the grid to ensure a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT of a wind energy conversion system. However the principal drawback of the sliding mode, is the chattering effect which characterized by torque ripple, this phenomena is undesirable and harmful for the machines, it generates noises and additional forces of torsion on the machine shaft. In order to reduce the chattering effect, the Sign function of sliding mode controller’s discontinuous part is replaced by a fuzzy logic; we will have the fuzzy sliding mode controller (FSMC. The FSMC makes it possible to combine the performances of the two types of controllers (SMC and FLC and eliminates the chattering effect. The proposed control algorithm is applied to a DFIG where the stator is directly connected to the grid and the rotor is connected to a three-level converter structure NPC to suppress low level harmonics, higher frequencies will be filtered out by the machine. Second goal of this paper is to extract a maximum of power; the rotor side converter is controlled by using a stator flux-oriented strategy. The decoupling created by the control between active and reactive stator power allows keeping the power factor close to unity. Simulation results show that the wind turbine can operate at its optimum energy for a wide range of wind speed. Both simulation and validation results show effectiveness of the proposed control strategy is in terms of power regulation. Moreover, the fuzzy sliding mode approach is arranged so as to reduce the chattering produced in the generated power that could lead to increased mechanical stress because of strong torque variations.

The sliding surface of the network and the control input are designed. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the method is analysed based on the stability theory. The Burgers equation with spatiotemporal chaos behavior is taken as an example to simulate the experiment. It is found that the synchronization performance of the network is very stable

  6. X33 Reusable Launch Vehicle Control on Sliding Modes: Concepts for a Control System Development

    Shtessel, Yuri B.

    1998-01-01

    Control of the X33 reusable launch vehicle is considered. The launch control problem consists of automatic tracking of the launch trajectory which is assumed to be optimally precalculated. It requires development of a reliable, robust control algorithm that can automatically adjust to some changes in mission specifications (mass of payload, target orbit) and the operating environment (atmospheric perturbations, interconnection perturbations from the other subsystems of the vehicle, thrust deficiencies, failure scenarios). One of the effective control strategies successfully applied in nonlinear systems is the Sliding Mode Control. The main advantage of the Sliding Mode Control is that the system's state response in the sliding surface remains insensitive to certain parameter variations, nonlinearities and disturbances. Employing the time scaling concept, a new two (three)-loop structure of the control system for the X33 launch vehicle was developed. Smoothed sliding mode controllers were designed to robustly enforce the given closed-loop dynamics. Simulations of the 3-DOF model of the X33 launch vehicle with the table-look-up models for Euler angle reference profiles and disturbance torque profiles showed a very accurate, robust tracking performance.

    Full Text Available Nowadays, the control of mechanical systems with fewer inputs than outputs (Under-actuated systems has become a challenging problem for control engineers. Two-wheeled balancing robots is one of the appealing examples of this category. This type of robot contains two parallel wheels and an inverted pendulum. In this research, designing of controller have been investigated for flat surfaces. For controller design, the extract dynamics of the system has been achieved based on Kane's method. Then for the two-wheeled balancing robot, one sliding mode controller has been designed for yaw angle, and another sliding mode controller has been designed to control both position and pitch angle based on a proposed sliding surface. The main feature of the proposed controllers is that all of controllers have been designed based on the nonlinear dynamics of system. Also, considering the limits of uncertainties while designing systems, the robustness of controllers have been increased. The common problem of sliding mode control is chattering phenomenon that has been greatly reduced using saturation function instead of sign function. Simulation results comparision of the designed controller with a LQR controller, validates the effectiveness of the proposed controller.

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents an acceleration slip regulation (ASR system for four-wheel drive (4WD electric vehicles, which are driven by the front and rear axles simultaneously. The ASR control strategy includes three control modes: average distribution of inter-axle torque, optimal distribution of inter-axle torque and independent control of optimal slip rate, respectively, which are designed based on the torque adaptive principle of inter-axle differential and sliding mode control theory. Furthermore, in order to accurately describe the longitudinal tyre force characteristic, a slip rate calculation formula in the form of a state equation was used for solving the numerical problem posed by the traditional way. A simulation was carried out with the MATLAB/Simulink software.

    Full Text Available In this paper we present a nonlinear control using fuzzy sliding mode for wind energy conversion system based on a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG supplied by an AC-AC converter. In the first place, we carried out briefly a study of modeling on the whole system. In order to control the power flowing between the stator of the DFIG and the grid, a proposed control design uses fuzzy logic technique is applied for implementing a fuzzy hitting control law to remove completely the chattering phenomenon on a conventional sliding mode control. The use of this method provides very satisfactory performance for the DFIG control, and the chattering effect is also reduced by the fuzzy mode. The machine is tested in association with a wind turbine. Simulations results are presented and discussed for the whole system.

  10. Decomposed Sliding Mode Control of the Drive with Interior Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor and Flexible Coupling

    Jan Vittek

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available A decomposed sliding mode control of the drive with an interior permanent magnet synchronous motor and flexible coupling is presented. Decomposition exploits principles of vector control to divide motor into channel for control of magnetic flux and channel for control of torque separately. Sliding mode control principles are exploited to keep demanded value of magnetic flux and to control load angle in the presence of vibration modes and external disturbances. To obtain continues voltage as a control variable a smoothing integrator follows signum function in both channels. As a modification the switching governed by signum function is replaced by the high gain including rearrangement of the control system block diagram. The simulations indicate that the control system yields the desired robustness and further investigations are recommended.

    2014-07-01

    A time-varying sliding-coefficient-based decoupled terminal sliding mode control strategy is presented for a class of fourth-order systems. First, the fourth-order system is decoupled into two second-order subsystems. The sliding surface of each subsystem was designed by utilizing time-varying coefficients. Then, the control target of one subsystem to another subsystem was embedded. Thereafter, a terminal sliding mode control method was utilized to make both subsystems converge to their equilibrium points in finite time. The simulation results on the inverted pendulum system demonstrate that the proposed method exhibits a considerable improvement in terms of a faster dynamic response and lower IAE and ITAE values as compared with the existing decoupled control methods.

    严浙平; 于浩淼; 侯恕萍

    2016-01-01

    The problem of diving control for an underactuated unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV) considering the presence of parameters perturbations and wave disturbances was addressesed. The vertical motion of an UUV was divided into two noninteracting subsystems for surge velocity control and diving. To stabilize the vertical motion system, the surge velocity and the depth control controllers were proposed using backstepping technology and an integral-fast terminal sliding mode control (IFTSMC). It is proven that the proposed control scheme can guarantee that all the error signals in the whole closed-loop system globally converge to the sliding surface in finite time and asymptotically converge to the origin along the sliding surface. With a unified control parameters for different motion states, a series of numerical simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the above designed control scheme, which also shows strong robustness against parameters perturbations and wave disturbances.

  13. An Adaptive Supervisory Sliding Fuzzy Cerebellar Model Articulation Controller for Sensorless Vector-Controlled Induction Motor Drive Systems

    Shun-Yuan Wang

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the implementation of an adaptive supervisory sliding fuzzy cerebellar model articulation controller (FCMAC in the speed sensorless vector control of an induction motor (IM drive system. The proposed adaptive supervisory sliding FCMAC comprised a supervisory controller, integral sliding surface, and an adaptive FCMAC. The integral sliding surface was employed to eliminate steady-state errors and enhance the responsiveness of the system. The adaptive FCMAC incorporated an FCMAC with a compensating controller to perform a desired control action. The proposed controller was derived using the Lyapunov approach, which guarantees learning-error convergence. The implementation of three intelligent control schemes—the adaptive supervisory sliding FCMAC, adaptive sliding FCMAC, and adaptive sliding CMAC—were experimentally investigated under various conditions in a realistic sensorless vector-controlled IM drive system. The root mean square error (RMSE was used as a performance index to evaluate the experimental results of each control scheme. The analysis results indicated that the proposed adaptive supervisory sliding FCMAC substantially improved the system performance compared with the other control schemes.

  14. A Fault Tolerant Direct Control Allocation Scheme with Integral Sliding Modes

    Hamayun Mirza Tariq

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, integral sliding mode control ideas are combined with direct control allocation in order to create a fault tolerant control scheme. Traditional integral sliding mode control can directly handle actuator faults; however, it cannot do so with actuator failures. Therefore, a mechanism needs to be adopted to distribute the control effort amongst the remaining functioning actuators in cases of faults or failures, so that an acceptable level of closed-loop performance can be retained. This paper considers the possibility of introducing fault tolerance even if fault or failure information is not provided to the control strategy. To demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed scheme, a high fidelity nonlinear model of a large civil aircraft is considered in the simulations in the presence of wind, gusts and sensor noise.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on a second order sliding mode based direct power controller (SOSM-DPC of a three-phase grid-connected voltage source converter (VSC. The proposed control scheme combined with fuzzy logic aims at regulating the DC-link voltage of the converter and precisely tracking arbitrary power references, in order to easily control the system’s power factor.

    Full Text Available Aiming at the problems of modeling errors, parameter variations, and load moment disturbances in DC motor control system, one global sliding mode disturbance observer (GSMDO is proposed based on the global sliding mode (GSM control theory. The output of GSMDO is used as the disturbance compensation in control system, which can improve the robust performance of DC motor control system. Based on the designed GSMDO in inner loop, one compound controller, composed of a feedback controller and a feedforward controller, is proposed in order to realize the position tracking of DC motor system. The gains of feedback controller are obtained by means of linear quadratic regulator (LQR optimal control theory. Simulation results present that the proposed control scheme possesses better tracking properties and stronger robustness against modeling errors, parameter variations, and friction moment disturbances. Moreover, its structure is simple; therefore it is easy to be implemented in engineering.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available A solution to the path following problem for underactuated autonomous vehicles in the presence of possibly large modeling parametric uncertainty is proposed. For a general class of vehicles moving in 2D space, we demonstrated a path following control law based on multiple variable sliding mode that yields global boundedness and convergence of the position tracking error to a small neighborhood and robustness to parametric modeling uncertainty. An error integration element is added into the “tanh” function of the traditional sliding mode control. We illustrated our results in the context of the vehicle control applications that an underwater vehicle moves along with the desired paths in 2D space. Simulations show that the control objectives were accomplished.

  1. Sliding modes control of active suspensions for a non-linear full vehicle model

    In this study, a non-linear seven degrees of freedom vehicle model is used in order to design and check the performance of sliding modes controlled active suspensions. Force actuators are mounted as parallel to the four suspensions and a non-chattering control is realized. Sliding mode control is preferred because of its robust character since any change in vehicle parameters should not affect the performance of the active suspensions. Improvement in ride comfort is aimed by decreasing the amplitudes of motions of vehicle body. Body bounce, pitch and yaw motions of the vehicle are simulated both in time domain in case of traveling on a limited ramp type of road profile and frequency domain using linear zed vehicle model. Also phase plane plots of them are checked. Simulation results are compared with the ones of passive suspensions. (author)

First, internal model control (IMC) and Smith predictor (SP) is used to deal with the time delay, and sliding mode controller (SMCr) is designed to overcome the model mismatch. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed controller compared with conventional ones.

    Full Text Available This paper develops a sensorless vector controlled method for AC induction motor using sliding-mode observer. For developing the control algorithm, modeling of AC induction motor is presented. After that, a sliding mode observer is proposed to estimate the motor speed, the rotor flux, the angular position of the rotor flux and the motor torque from monitored stator voltages and currents. The use of the nonlinear sliding mode observer provides very good performance for both low and high speed motor operation. Furthermore, the proposed system is robust in motor losses and load variations. The convergence of the proposed observer is obtained using the Lyapunov theory. Hardware and software for simulation and experiment of the AC induction motor drive are introduced. The hardware consists of a 1.5kw AC induction motor connected in series with a torque sensor and a powder brake. A controller is developed based on DSP TMS320F28355. The simulation and experimental results illustrate that fast torque and speed response with small torque ripples can be achieved.

    2014-09-01

    In this paper, a novel dynamic sliding mode control scheme is proposed for a class of uncertain stochastic nonlinear time-delay systems represented by Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models. The key advantage of the proposed scheme is that two very restrictive assumptions in most existing sliding mode control approaches for stochastic fuzzy systems have been removed. It is shown that the closed-loop control system trajectories can be driven onto the sliding surface in finite time almost certainly. It is also shown that the stochastic stability of the resulting sliding motion can be guaranteed in terms of linear matrix inequalities; moreover, the sliding-mode controller can be obtained simultaneously. Simulation results illustrating the advantages and effectiveness of the proposed approaches are also provided. PMID:25137685

    Islam, Gazi; Muyeen, S M; Al-Durra, Ahmed; Hasanien, Hany M

    2016-05-01

    This paper proposes a novel approach for testing dynamics and control aspects of a large scale photovoltaic (PV) system in real time along with resolving design hindrances of controller parameters using Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS). In general, the harmonic profile of a fast controller has wide distribution due to the large bandwidth of the controller. The major contribution of this paper is that the proposed control strategy gives an improved voltage harmonic profile and distribute it more around the switching frequency along with fast transient response; filter design, thus, becomes easier. The implementation of a control strategy with high bandwidth in small time steps of Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) is not straight forward. This paper shows a good methodology for the practitioners to implement such control scheme in RTDS. As a part of the industrial process, the controller parameters are optimized using particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique to improve the low voltage ride through (LVRT) performance under network disturbance. The response surface methodology (RSM) is well adapted to build analytical models for recovery time (Rt), maximum percentage overshoot (MPOS), settling time (Ts), and steady state error (Ess) of the voltage profile immediate after inverter under disturbance. A systematic approach of controller parameter optimization is detailed. The transient performance of the PSO based optimization method applied to the proposed sliding mode controlled PV inverter is compared with the results from genetic algorithm (GA) based optimization technique. The reported real time implementation challenges and controller optimization procedure are applicable to other control applications in the field of renewable and distributed generation systems.

    Full Text Available A position control of DC motor servo drive based on the Sliding Mode (SM approach is presented. The modeling and analysis of the servo DC motor are obtained. The Sliding Mode Controller (SMC design changes such that its performance is substantially improved. To improve the controller performance in steady stat (zero error the Integral Sliding Mode Controller (ISMC is used. Since the main drawback of SMC is a phenomenon, the so-called chattering, resulting from discontinuous controllers. A ISMC with switched gains is used for chattering reduction and controller robustness. For comparison, the proposed ISM with switched gains is compared with that of a PID controller. Experiments and simulations have been carried out in order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme. The proposed controller offers very good tracking; it is highly robust, reaches the final position very fast. Furthermore the application of the SM ensures reduction of the system order by one. Also, quick recovery from matched disturbance in addition to good tracking ability. Moreover, this scheme is robust against the parameters variations and eliminate the influence of modeling.

  1. Current Sensor Fault Diagnosis Based on a Sliding Mode Observer for PMSM Driven Systems

    Gang Huang

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a current sensor fault detection method based on a sliding mode observer for the torque closed-loop control system of interior permanent magnet synchronous motors. First, a sliding mode observer based on the extended flux linkage is built to simplify the motor model, which effectively eliminates the phenomenon of salient poles and the dependence on the direct axis inductance parameter, and can also be used for real-time calculation of feedback torque. Then a sliding mode current observer is constructed in αβ coordinates to generate the fault residuals of the phase current sensors. The method can accurately identify abrupt gain faults and slow-variation offset faults in real time in faulty sensors, and the generated residuals of the designed fault detection system are not affected by the unknown input, the structure of the observer, and the theoretical derivation and the stability proof process are concise and simple. The RT-LAB real-time simulation is used to build a simulation model of the hardware in the loop. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method.

  2. Darkfield adapter for whole slide imaging: adapting a darkfield internal reflection illumination system to extend WSI applications.

    2013-01-01

    We present a new method for whole slide darkfield imaging. Whole Slide Imaging (WSI), also sometimes called virtual slide or virtual microscopy technology, produces images that simultaneously provide high resolution and a wide field of observation that can encompass the entire section, extending far beyond any single field of view. For example, a brain slice can be imaged so that both overall morphology and individual neuronal detail can be seen. We extended the capabilities of traditional whole slide systems and developed a prototype system for darkfield internal reflection illumination (DIRI). Our darkfield system uses an ultra-thin light-emitting diode (LED) light source to illuminate slide specimens from the edge of the slide. We used a new type of side illumination, a variation on the internal reflection method, to illuminate the specimen and create a darkfield image. This system has four main advantages over traditional darkfield: (1) no oil condenser is required for high resolution imaging (2) there is less scatter from dust and dirt on the slide specimen (3) there is less halo, providing a more natural darkfield contrast image, and (4) the motorized system produces darkfield, brightfield and fluorescence images. The WSI method sometimes allows us to image using fewer stains. For instance, diaminobenzidine (DAB) and fluorescent staining are helpful tools for observing protein localization and volume in tissues. However, these methods usually require counter-staining in order to visualize tissue structure, limiting the accuracy of localization of labeled cells within the complex multiple regions of typical neurohistological preparations. Darkfield imaging works on the basis of light scattering from refractive index mismatches in the sample. It is a label-free method of producing contrast in a sample. We propose that adapting darkfield imaging to WSI is very useful, particularly when researchers require additional structural information without the use of

The stability results derived in this paper for the anti-synchronization of identical hyperchaotic Lorenz systems are established using Lyapunov stability theory. Since the Lyapunov exponents are not required for these calculations, thesliding mode control method is very effective and convenient to achieve global chaos synchronization of the identical hyperchaotic Lorenz systems.

    In this study, a sliding mode control system is designed for a multi-degree-of-freedom structure having an Active Tuned Mass Damper (ATMD) to suppress earthquake or wind induced vibration. Since the model might have uncertainties and/or parameter changes, sliding mode control is preferred because of its robust character and superior performance. In addition this control method can easily be applied to non-linear systems. The simulated system has five degrees of freedom. In this stu...

    The fault-tolerant control problem belongs to the domain of complex control systems in which inter-control-disciplinary information and expertise are required. This paper proposes an improved faults detection, reconstruction and fault-tolerant control (FTC) scheme for motor systems (MS) with typical faults. For this purpose, a sliding mode controller (SMC) with an integral sliding surface is adopted. This controller can make the output of system to track the desired position reference signal in finite-time and obtain a better dynamic response and anti-disturbance performance. But this controller cannot deal directly with total system failures. However an appropriate combination of the adopted SMC and sliding mode observer (SMO), later it is designed to on-line detect and reconstruct the faults and also to give a sensorless control strategy which can achieve tolerance to a wide class of total additive failures. The closed-loop stability is proved, using the Lyapunov stability theory. Simulation results in healthy and faulty conditions confirm the reliability of the suggested framework. PMID:25747198

    2013-09-01

    This paper presents a nonsingular decoupled terminal sliding mode control (NDTSMC) method for a class of fourth-order nonlinear systems. First, the nonlinear fourth-order system is decoupled into two second-order subsystems which are referred to as the primary and secondary subsystems. The sliding surface of each subsystem was designed by utilizing time-varying coefficients which are computed by linear functions derived from the input-output mapping of the one-dimensional fuzzy rule base. Then, the control target of the secondary subsystem was embedded to the primary subsystem by the help of an intermediate signal. Thereafter, a nonsingular terminal sliding mode control (NTSMC) method was utilized to make both subsystems converge to their equilibrium points in finite time. The simulation results on the inverted pendulum system are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed method. It is seen that the proposed method exhibits a considerable improvement in terms of a faster dynamic response and lower IAE and ITAE values as compared with the existing decoupled control methods.

  9. Sliding Mode Output Feedback Control of a Flexible Rotor Supported by Magnetic Bearings

    A. S. Lewis

    2001-01-01

    Full Text Available A new sliding mode feedback algorithm is applied to control the vibration of a flexible rotor supported by magnetic bearings. It is assumed that the number of states is greater than the number of sensors. A mathematical model of the rotor]magnetic bearing system is presented in terms of partial differential equations. These equations are then discretized into a finite number of ordinary differential equations through Galerkin’s method. The sliding mode control law is designed to be robust to rotor unbalance and transient disturbances. A boundary layer is introduced around each sliding hyperplane to eliminate the chattering phenomenon. The results from numerical simulations are presented that not only corroborate the validity of the proposed controller, but also show the effects of various control parameters as a function of the angular speed of the rotor. In addition, results are presented that indicate how the current required by the magnetic bearings is affected by control parameters and the angular speed of the rotor.

    2016-05-01

    The aim of this paper is to propose a new design variable speed wind turbine control by discrete-time sliding mode approach. This methodology is designed for linear saturated system. The saturation constraint is reported on inputs vector. To this end, the back stepping design procedure is followed to construct a suitable sliding manifold that guarantees the attainment of a stabilization control objective. It is well known that the mechanisms are investigated in term of the most proposed assumptions to deal with the damping, shaft stiffness and inertia effect of the gear. The objectives are to synthesize robust controllers that maximize the energy extracted from wind, while reducing mechanical loads and rotor speed tracking combined with an electromagnetic torque. Simulation results of the proposed scheme are presented. PMID:26804750

  11. Robust optical speed tracking control of a current sensor less synchronous reluctance motor drive using a new sliding mode controller

    This paper describes the robust optimal incremental motion control of a current sensor less synchronous reluctance motor, which can be specified by any desired speed profile. The control scheme is a combination of conventional linear quadratic feed back control method and sliding mode control. A novel sliding switching surface is employed first, that makes the states of the synchronous reluctance motor follow the nominal trajectories (controlled by any type of nominal controller) when the motor parameter uncertainties and the disturbance load torque exist. The sliding mode controller has no reaching phase and produces small sliding mode control chattering. Then, using the above tracking controller, the well-known torque control schemes, maximum torque, constant current inductive axis control and maximum power factor control related to the synchronous reluctance motor are examined below and above the base speed. Finally the validity of our proposed control scheme is verified by computer simulation results

  12. Adaptive Control of Flexible Structures Using Residual Mode Filters

    Balas, Mark J.; Frost, Susan

    2010-01-01

    Flexible structures containing a large number of modes can benefit from adaptive control techniques which are well suited to applications that have unknown modeling parameters and poorly known operating conditions. In this paper, we focus on a direct adaptive control approach that has been extended to handle adaptive rejection of persistent disturbances. We extend our adaptive control theory to accommodate troublesome modal subsystems of a plant that might inhibit the adaptive controller. In some cases the plant does not satisfy the requirements of Almost Strict Positive Realness. Instead, there maybe be a modal subsystem that inhibits this property. This section will present new results for our adaptive control theory. We will modify the adaptive controller with a Residual Mode Filter (RMF) to compensate for the troublesome modal subsystem, or the Q modes. Here we present the theory for adaptive controllers modified by RMFs, with attention to the issue of disturbances propagating through the Q modes. We apply the theoretical results to a flexible structure example to illustrate the behavior with and without the residual mode filter. We have proposed a modified adaptive controller with a residual mode filter. The RMF is used to accommodate troublesome modes in the system that might otherwise inhibit the adaptive controller, in particular the ASPR condition. This new theory accounts for leakage of the disturbance term into the Q modes. A simple three-mode example shows that the RMF can restore stability to an otherwise unstable adaptively controlled system. This is done without modifying the adaptive controller design.

    2016-06-01

    In this paper, the drag-based trajectory tracking guidance problem is investigated for Mars entry vehicle subject to uncertainties. A composite super twisting sliding mode control method based on finite-time disturbance observer is proposed for guidance law design. The proposed controller not only eliminates the effects of matched and mismatched disturbances due to uncertainties of atmospheric models and vehicle aerodynamics but also guarantees the continuity of control action. Numerical simulations are carried out on the basis of Mars Science Laboratory mission, where the results show that the proposed methods can improve the Mars entry guidance precision as compared with some existing guidance methods including PID and ADRC.

Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed flight control scheme.

  16. Second-order sliding mode control of a 2D torsional MEMS micromirror with sidewall electrodes

    A second-order sliding mode control (2-SMC) scheme with a proportional integral derivative (PID) sliding surface, to achieve enhanced transient response, accurate positioning and precise tracking performance of a 2-degree-of-freedom (2D) torsional MEMS micromirror with sidewall electrodes, is developed in this paper. The PID sliding surface is chosen to achieve a zero steady-state error of the closed-loop system. The 2-SMC is able to reduce the chattering phenomena, which comprises of an equivalent control and switching control to dominate model uncertainty and external disturbances leading to an enhanced performance of the controlled system. Finite-time convergence of the closed-loop system in the presence of bounded parameter uncertainties and external disturbances is guaranteed through Lyapunov stability analysis. The proposed 2-SMC is programmed in a LABVIEW environment and implemented based on National Instrument (NI) field-programmable gate array hardware to verify the effectiveness and robustness. The experimental results of set-point regulation and sinusoidal trajectory tacking demonstrate that the closed-loop system with the proposed control scheme significantly improves the transient performance, accurate positioning and trajectory tracking with robustness against external disturbance. The 95% settling time is shortened from 70 to 3 ms for the X-axis and from 60 to 3 ms for the Y-axis respectively, the overshoots and steady-state errors are eliminated in both axes, and less than 5% maximum positioning error is achieved in the presence of external disturbance.

    Long, Yi; Du, Zhi-jiang; Wang, Wei-dong; Dong, Wei

    2016-01-01

    A lower limb assistive exoskeleton is designed to help operators walk or carry payloads. The exoskeleton is required to shadow human motion intent accurately and compliantly to prevent incoordination. If the user's intention is estimated accurately, a precise position control strategy will improve collaboration between the user and the exoskeleton. In this paper, a hybrid position control scheme, combining sliding mode control (SMC) with a cerebellar model articulation controller (CMAC) neural network, is proposed to control the exoskeleton to react appropriately to human motion intent. A genetic algorithm (GA) is utilized to determine the optimal sliding surface and the sliding control law to improve performance of SMC. The proposed control strategy (SMC_GA_CMAC) is compared with three other types of approaches, that is, conventional SMC without optimization, optimal SMC with GA (SMC_GA), and SMC with CMAC compensation (SMC_CMAC), all of which are employed to track the desired joint angular position which is deduced from Clinical Gait Analysis (CGA) data. Position tracking performance is investigated with cosimulation using ADAMS and MATLAB/SIMULINK in two cases, of which the first case is without disturbances while the second case is with a bounded disturbance. The cosimulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy which can be employed in similar exoskeleton systems. PMID:27069353

  20. Energy optimized sliding-mode control of sensorless induction motor drives

    In this paper a sensorless sliding-mode (SM) direct torque and flux control is described for three-phase induction motor (IM) drive. The IM drive is supplied with a two level space vector modulation (SVM) voltage source inverter. A conventional PI speed controller is employed to generate the desired torque command in the case of speed control. Stator and rotor flux vectors are estimated using a sliding-mode observer and are employed in rotor speed estimation. Moreover, the IM model includes the iron losses through a speed dependent shunt resistance in the motor two axis equivalent circuits. Motor efficiency is also optimized by adjusting the magnitude of the stator flux reference for each value of motor load and speed. For this purpose, an on-line search method (OSM) is adopted. According to this method, for each given value of load torque and rotor speed, the stator flux reference is adjusted so that the average of real input power becomes minimized. Simulation and experimental results are presented to show the capability and validity of the proposed control scheme.

  1. Estimation of the shear force in transverse dynamic force microscopy using a sliding mode observer

    Thang Nguyen

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, the problem of estimating the shear force affecting the tip of the cantilever in a Transverse Dynamic Force Microscope (TDFM using a real-time implementable sliding mode observer is addressed. The behaviour of a vertically oriented oscillated cantilever, in close proximity to a specimen surface, facilitates the imaging of the specimen at nano-metre scale. Distance changes between the cantilever tip and the specimen can be inferred from the oscillation amplitudes, but also from the shear force acting at the tip. Thus, the problem of accurately estimating the shear force is of significance when specimen images and mechanical properties need to be obtained at submolecular precision. A low order dynamic model of the cantilever is derived using the method of lines, for the purpose of estimating the shear force. Based on this model, an estimator using sliding mode techniques is presented to reconstruct the unknown shear force, from only tip position measurements and knowledge of the excitation signal applied to the top of the cantilever. Comparisons to methods assuming a quasi-static harmonic balance are made.

  2. Second Order Sliding Mode Control Scheme for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle with Dynamic Region Concept

    Zool H. Ismail

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The main goal in developing closed loop control system for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV is to make a robust vehicle from natural and exogenous perturbations such as wind, wave, and ocean currents. However a well-known robust control, for instance, Sliding Mode Controller (SMC, gives a chattering effect and it influences the stability of an AUV. Furthermore, some researchers combined other controls to get better result but it tends to present long computational time and causes large energy consumption. Thus, this paper proposed a Super Twisting Sliding Mode Controller (STSMC with dynamic region concept for an AUV. STSMC or a second order SMC is adopted as a robust controller which is free from chattering effect. Meanwhile, the implementation of dynamic region is useful to reduce the energy usage. As a result, the proposed controller obtains global asymptotic stability which is validated by using Lyapunov-like function. Moreover, some simulations present the efficiency of proposed controller. In conclusion, STSMC with region based control is effective to be applied for the robust tracking of an AUV. It contributes to give a fast response when handling the perturbations, short computational time, and low energy demand.

  3. Maneuver and vibration reduction of flexible spacecraft using sliding mode/command shaping technique

    HU Qing-lei; MA Guang-fu; ZHANG Wei

    2006-01-01

    A generalized scheme based on the sliding mode and component synthesis vibration suppression (CSVS) method has been proposed for the rotational maneuver and vibration suppression of an orbiting spacecraft with flexible appendages. The proposed control design process is twofold: design of the attitude controller followed by the design of a flexible vibration attenuator. The attitude controller using only the attitude and the rate information for the flexible spacecraft (FS) is designed to serve two purposes: it forces the attitude motion onto a pre-selected sliding surface and then guides it to the state space origin. The shaped command input controller based on the CSVS method is designed for the reduction of the flexible mode vibration, which only requires information about the natural frequency and damping of the closed system. This information is used to discretize the input so that minimum energy is injected via the controller to the flexible nodes of the spacecraft. Additionally, to extend the CSVS method to the system with the on-off actuators, the pulse-width pulse-frequency ( PWPF) modulation is introduced to control the thruster firing and integrated with the CSVS method. PWPF modulation is a control method that provides pseudo-linear operation for an on-off thruster. The proposed control strategy has been implemented on a FS, which is a hub with symmetric cantilever flexible beam appendages and can undergo a single axis rotation. The results have been proven the potential of this technique to control FS.

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available The present work examines a direct torque control strategy using a high order sliding mode controllers of a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG incorporated in a wind energy conversion system and working in saturated state. This research is carried out to reach two main objectives. Firstly, in order to introduce some accuracy for the calculation of DFIG performances, an accurate model considering magnetic saturation effect is developed. The second objective is to achieve a robust control of DFIG based wind turbine. For this purpose, a Direct Torque Control (DTC combined with a High Order Sliding Mode Control (HOSMC is applied to the DFIG rotor side converter. Conventionally, the direct torque control having hysteresis comparators possesses major flux and torque ripples at steady-state and moreover the switching frequency varies on a large range. The new DTC method gives a perfect decoupling between the flux and the torque. It also reduces ripples in these grandeurs. Finally, simulated results show, accurate dynamic performances, faster transient responses and more robust control are achieved.

  5. Smooth Sliding Mode Control for Trajectory Tracking of Greenhouse Spraying Mobile Robot

    Fang Zhiming

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available For the spraying mobile robot working in greenhouse, due to the inconsistency of drive motors and the rough walking surface, it is easy to track off. For the liquidity of pesticide, the load always changes even the speed jumps. Because of these uncertainties, external disturbances and the difficulty of constructing the system dynamic model, it is hard to implement the trajectory tracking control of the spraying mobile robot steadily, precisely and quickly. In order to solve the problem, a smooth sliding mode trajectory tracking control method is proposed based on the distribute control strategy for each branch. Moreover, its stability is proved using the Lyapunov function. The simulation results show that the proposed method can track the reference trajectories precisely, quickly and steadily under the strong white noise. The chattering phenomenon of the control law is restrained compared to the conventional sliding mode control. The trajectory tracking performance is better than that of the fuzzy control. The designed method is easy to realize and doesn’t need to construct the precise mathematical model, so, it affords an economical and convenient control method for solving the trajectory tracking problem of the greenhouse spraying mobile robot under various uncertain interferences.

  6. Parameter Selection Guidelines for a Parabolic Sliding Mode Filter Based on Frequency and Time Domain Characteristics

    Shanhai Jin

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the results of quantitative performance evaluation of an authors’ new parabolic sliding mode filter, which is for removing noise from signals in robotics and mechatronics applications, based on the frequency and time domain characteristics. Based on the evaluation results, the paper presents selection guidelines of two parameters of the filter. The evaluation results show that, in the frequency domain, the noise removing capability of the filter is almost the same as that of the second-order Butterworth low-pass filter (2-LPF, but its phase lag is smaller (maximum 150 degree than that of 2-LPF (maximum 180 degree. Moreover, the filter produces smaller phase lag than a conventional parabolic sliding mode filter with appropriate selection of the parameters. In the time domain, the filter produces smaller overshoot than 2-LPF and the conventional one, while maintaining short transient time, by using an appropriately selected parameter. The presented parameter selection guidelines state that the values of the parameters should be chosen according to some estimated characteristics of the input and some desired characteristics of the output. The effectiveness of the filter and the presented guidelines is validated through numerical examples and their application to a closed-loop, force control of a robot manipulator.

  7. Robust fuzzy neural network sliding mode control scheme for IPMSM drives

    Leu, V. Q.; Mwasilu, F.; Choi, H. H.; Lee, J.; Jung, J. W.

    2014-07-01

    This article proposes a robust fuzzy neural network sliding mode control (FNNSMC) law for interior permanent magnet synchronous motor (IPMSM) drives. The proposed control strategy not only guarantees accurate and fast command speed tracking but also it ensures the robustness to system uncertainties and sudden speed and load changes. The proposed speed controller encompasses three control terms: a decoupling control term which compensates for nonlinear coupling factors using nominal parameters, a fuzzy neural network (FNN) control term which approximates the ideal control components and a sliding mode control (SMC) term which is proposed to compensate for the errors of that approximation. Next, an online FNN training methodology, which is developed using the Lyapunov stability theorem and the gradient descent method, is proposed to enhance the learning capability of the FNN. Moreover, the maximum torque per ampere (MTPA) control is incorporated to maximise the torque generation in the constant torque region and increase the efficiency of the IPMSM drives. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed robust FNNSMC, simulations and experiments are performed by using MATLAB/Simulink platform and a TI TMS320F28335 DSP on a prototype IPMSM drive setup, respectively. Finally, the simulated and experimental results indicate that the proposed design scheme can achieve much better control performances (e.g. more rapid transient response and smaller steady-state error) when compared to the conventional SMC method, especially in the case that there exist system uncertainties.

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available Design a nonlinear controller for second order nonlinear uncertain dynamical systems is one of the most important challenging works. This paper focuses on the design, implementation and analysis of a chattering free sliding mode controller for highly nonlinear dynamic PUMA robot manipulator and compare to computed torque controller, in presence of uncertainties. In order to provide high performance nonlinear methodology, sliding mode controller and computed torque controller are selected. Pure sliding mode controller and computed torque controller can be used to control of partly known nonlinear dynamic parameters of robot manipulator. Conversely, pure sliding mode controller is used in many applications; it has an important drawback namely; chattering phenomenon which it can causes some problems such as saturation and heat the mechanical parts of robot manipulators or drivers. In order to reduce the chattering this research is used the linear saturation function boundary layer method instead of switching function method in pure sliding mode controller. These simulation models are developed as a part of a software laboratory to support and enhance graduate/undergraduate robotics courses, nonlinear control courses and MATLAB/SIMULINK courses at research and development company (SSP Co. research center, Shiraz, Iran.

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available Unreliability of the data streams generated by RFID readers is among the primary factors which limit the widespread adoption of the RFID technology. RFID data cleaning is, therefore, an essential task in the RFID middleware systems in order to reduce reading errors, and to allow these data streams to be used to make a correct interpretation and analysis of the physical world they are representing. In this paper we propose an adaptive sliding-window based approach called WSTD which is capable of efficiently coping with both environmental variation and tag dynamics.

    Sumantri, Bambang; Uchiyama, Naoki; Sano, Shigenori

    2016-01-01

    In this paper, a new control structure for a quad-rotor helicopter that employs the least squares method is introduced. This proposed algorithm solves the overdetermined problem of the control input for the translational motion of a quad-rotor helicopter. The algorithm allows all six degrees of freedom to be considered to calculate the control input. The sliding mode controller is applied to achieve robust tracking and stabilization. A saturation function is designed around a boundary layer to reduce the chattering phenomenon that is a common problem in sliding mode control. In order to improve the tracking performance, an integral sliding surface is designed. An energy saving effect because of chattering reduction is also evaluated. First, the dynamics of the quad-rotor helicopter is derived by the Newton-Euler formulation for a rigid body. Second, a constant plus proportional reaching law is introduced to increase the reaching rate of the sliding mode controller. Global stability of the proposed control strategy is guaranteed based on the Lyapunov's stability theory. Finally, the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed control system are demonstrated experimentally under wind gusts, and are compared with a regular sliding mode controller, a proportional-differential controller, and a proportional-integral-differential controller.

    Chang, Yeong-Hwa; Chang, Chia-Wen; Chen, Chun-Lin; Tao, Chin-Wang

    2012-04-01

    This paper mainly addresses the decentralized formation problems for multiple robots, where a fuzzy sliding-mode formation controller (FSMFC) is proposed. The directed networks of dynamic agents with external disturbances and system uncertainties are discussed in consensus problems. To perform a formation control and to guarantee system robustness, a novel formation algorithm combining the concepts of graph theory and fuzzy sliding-model control is presented. According to the communication topology, formation stability conditions can be determined so that an FSMFC can be derived. By Lyapunov stability theorem, not only the system stability can be guaranteed, but the desired formation pattern of a multirobot system can be also achieved. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the provided control scheme. Finally, an experimental setup for the e-puck multirobot system is built. Compared to first-order formation algorithm and fuzzy neural network formation algorithm, it shows that real-time experimental results empirically support the promising performance of desire.

  14. Sliding mode based trajectory linearization control for hypersonic reentry vehicle via extended disturbance observer.

    Xingling, Shao; Honglun, Wang

    2014-11-01

    This paper proposes a novel hybrid control framework by combing observer-based sliding mode control (SMC) with trajectory linearization control (TLC) for hypersonic reentry vehicle (HRV) attitude tracking problem. First, fewer control consumption is achieved using nonlinear tracking differentiator (TD) in the attitude loop. Second, a novel SMC that employs extended disturbance observer (EDO) to counteract the effect of uncertainties using a new sliding surface which includes the estimation error is integrated to address the tracking error stabilization issues in the attitude and angular rate loop, respectively. In addition, new results associated with EDO are examined in terms of dynamic response and noise-tolerant performance, as well as estimation accuracy. The key feature of the proposed compound control approach is that chattering free tracking performance with high accuracy can be ensured for HRV in the presence of multiple uncertainties under control constraints. Based on finite time convergence stability theory, the stability of the resulting closed-loop system is well established. Also, comparisons and extensive simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the control strategy. PMID:25451817

    Lascu, Cristian; Boldea, Ion; Blaabjerg, Frede

    2004-01-01

    Direct torque control (DTC) is known to produce fast response and robust control in ac adjustable-speed drives. However, in the steady-state operation, notable torque, flux, and current pulsations occur. A new, direct torque and flux control strategy based on variable-structure control and space......-vector pulsewidth modulation is proposed for induction motor sensorless drives. The DTC transient merits and robustness are preserved and the steady-state behaviour is improved by reducing the torque and flux pulsations. A sliding-mode observer using a dual reference frame motor model is introduced and tested....... Simulations and comparative experimental results with the proposed control scheme, versus classic DTC, are presented. Very-low-speed sensorless operation (3 r/min) is demonstrated....

    Full Text Available Reactive power compensation plays a key role in reducing distribution losses by improving power factor. A three phase three wire DSTATCOM consisting of a five level H-bridge Voltage Source Converter (VSC is proposed for improving power factor in the distribution system at the Point of Common Coupling (PCC when the load is continuously changing. The sliding mode control algorithm is used for reactive power compensation and achieve unity power factor. To accomplish this DSTATCOM is controlled to supply or absorb reactive power at PCC. Sinusoidal PWM method is used for obtaining the switching pulses for the cascaded H-bridge converter. The performance of the DSTATCOM controlled distribution system is validated by simulations using MATLAB/Simulink software and Power System block set toolboxes.

  20. Speed Synchronization of Multi Induction Motors with Fuzzy Sliding Mode Control

    HACHEMI Glaoui

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available A continuous web winding system is a large-scale, complex interconnected dynamic system with numerous tension zones to transport the web while processing it. There are two control schemes for large-scale system control: the centralized scheme and the decentralized scheme. Centralized control is the traditional control method, which considers all the information about the system to be a single dynamic model and design a control system for this model. Aspeed synchronization control strategy for multiple induction motors, based on adjacent cross-coupling control structure, is developed by employing total sliding mode control method. The proposed controlstrategy is to stabilize speed tracking of each induction motor while synchronizing its speed with the speed of the other motors so as to make speed synchronization error amongst induction motors converge to zero. The global stability and the convergence of the designedcontroller are proved by using Lyapunov method. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    Full Text Available Induction machines are among the most widely used electrical-to-mechanical converters in electric drives. Their advantageous robustness and simplicity goes hand-in-hand with complicated control. A converter with a suitable control algorithm is needed in order to withdraw maximum power and dynamics from the drive.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The Proportional Integral Derivative (PID Fuzzy Sliding Mode Controller (FSMC is the most widely used control strategy in the Industry (control of robotic arm. The popularity of PID FSMC controllers can be attributed to their robust performance in a wide range of operating conditions and partly to their functional simplicity. The process of setting of PID FSMC controller can be determined as an optimization task. Over the years, use of intelligent strategies for tuning of these controllers has been growing. Biologically inspired evolutionary strategies have gained importance over other strategies because of their consistent performance over wide range of process models and their flexibility. This paper analyses the modified PID FSMC controllers based on minimum rule base for flexible robot manipulator system and test the quality of process control in the simulation environment of MATLAB/SIMULINK Simulator.

  5. A reduced-order nonlinear sliding mode observer for vehicle slip angle and tyre forces

    Chen, Yuhang; Ji, Yunfeng; Guo, Konghui

    2014-12-01

    In this paper, a reduced-order sliding mode observer (RO-SMO) is developed for vehicle state estimation. Several improvements are achieved in this paper. First, the reference model accuracy is improved by considering vehicle load transfers and using a precise nonlinear tyre model 'UniTire'. Second, without the reference model accuracy degraded, the computing burden of the state observer is decreased by a reduced-order approach. Third, nonlinear system damping is integrated into the SMO to speed convergence and reduce chattering. The proposed RO-SMO is evaluated through simulation and experiments based on an in-wheel motor electric vehicle. The results show that the proposed observer accurately predicts the vehicle states.

  6. Sliding mode-based lateral vehicle dynamics control using tyre force measurements

    Kunnappillil Madhusudhanan, Anil; Corno, Matteo; Holweg, Edward

    2015-11-01

    In this work, a lateral vehicle dynamics control based on tyre force measurements is proposed. Most of the lateral vehicle dynamics control schemes are based on yaw rate whereas tyre forces are the most important variables in vehicle dynamics as tyres are the only contact points between the vehicle and road. In the proposed method, active front steering is employed to uniformly distribute the required lateral force among the front left and right tyres. The force distribution is quantified through the tyre utilisation coefficients. In order to address the nonlinearities and uncertainties of the vehicle model, a gain scheduling sliding-mode control technique is used. In addition to stabilising the lateral dynamics, the proposed controller is able to maintain maximum lateral acceleration. The proposed method is tested and validated on a multi-body vehicle simulator.

    Zhou, Jiawang; Zhou, Zude; Ai, Qingsong

    As an auxiliary treatment, the 6-DOF parallel robot plays an important role in lower limb rehabilitation. In order to improve the efficiency and flexibility of the lower limb rehabilitation training, this paper studies the impedance controller based on the position control. A nonsingular terminal sliding mode control is developed to ensure the trajectory tracking precision and in contrast to traditional PID control strategy in the inner position loop, the system will be more stable. The stability of the system is proved by Lyapunov function to guarantee the convergence of the control errors. Simulation results validate the effectiveness of the target impedance model and show that the parallel robot can adjust gait trajectory online according to the human-machine interaction force to meet the gait request of patients, and changing the impedance parameters can meet the demands of different stages of rehabilitation training.

  8. Decentralized sliding-mode control for spacecraft attitude synchronization under actuator failures

    Wu, Baolin; Wang, Danwei; Poh, Eng Kee

    2014-12-01

    This paper examines attitude synchronization and tracking problems with model uncertainties, external disturbances, actuator failures and control torque saturation. Two decentralized sliding mode control laws are proposed and analyzed based on algebraic graph theory. Using Barbalat's Lemma, it is shown that the control laws guarantee each spacecraft approaches the desired time-varying attitude and angular velocity while maintaining attitude synchronization among the other spacecraft in the formation. The first controller is designed in the presence of model uncertainties, external disturbances, and actuator failures. The results are extended to the case with control input saturation in the second controller. Both control laws do not require online identification of failures. Numerical simulations are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed attitude synchronization and tracking approaches.

  9. Fuzzy sliding mode controller of a pneumatic active isolating system using negative stiffness structure

    A novel active vibration isolation system using negative stiffness structure (active system with NSS) for low excitation frequency ranges (< 5 Hz) is developed successfully. Here, the negative stiffness structure (NSS) is used to minimize the attraction of vibration. Then, the fuzzy sliding mode controller (FSMC) is designed to improve the vibration isolation performance of the active system with NSS. Based on Lyapunov stability theorem, the fuzzy control rules are constructed. Next, the experimental apparatus is built for evaluating the isolation efficiency of the proposed system controlled by the FSMC corresponding to various excitation conditions. In addition, the isolation performance of the active system with NSS, the active system without NSS and the passive the system with NSS is compared. The experimental results confirmed that the active system with NSS gives better isolation efficiency than the active system without NSS and the passive system with NSS in low excitation frequency areas

  10. Robust sliding mode control for uncertain servo system using friction observer and recurrent fuzzy neural networks

    A robust positioning control scheme has been developed using friction parameter observer and recurrent fuzzy neural networks based on the sliding mode control. As a dynamic friction model, the LuGre model is adopted for handling friction compensation because it has been known to capture sufficiently the properties of a nonlinear dynamic friction. A developed friction parameter observer has a simple structure and also well estimates friction parameters of the LuGre friction model. In addition, an approximation method for the system uncertainty is developed using recurrent fuzzy neural networks technology to improve the precision positioning degree. Some simulation and experiment provide the verification on the performance of a proposed robust control scheme

    Mingchao Xia

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Control strategies of D-STATCOM for unbalanced load compensation under internal and external disturbances were discussed. Linear control strategies do not have a satisfactory dynamic performance and become invalid under internal or external disturbances. To guarantee a good precision and robustness, a control strategy combining input-output feedback linearization technique with integral sliding mode control (ISMC method was applied to D-STATCOM for unbalanced load compensation. The strategy has features of simple structure and is easy to implement. A 10 MVar/10 kV D-STATCOM simulation system was built in PSCAD/EMTDC to verify the effectiveness and robustness of the control strategy proposed. Simulation results show that the control strategy can compensate reactive power and eliminate unbalance simultaneously under various disturbances.

    Simone L Van Es

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Background: The constant growth in the body of knowledge in medicine requires pathologists and pathology trainees to engage in continuing education. Providing them with equitable access to efficient and effective forms of education in pathology (especially in remote and rural settings is important, but challenging. Methods: We developed three pilot cytopathology virtual microscopy adaptive tutorials (VMATs to explore a novel adaptive E-learning platform (AeLP which can incorporate whole slide images for pathology education. We collected user feedback to further develop this educational material and to subsequently deploy randomized trials in both pathology specialist trainee and also medical student cohorts. Cytopathology whole slide images were first acquired then novel VMATs teaching cytopathology were created using the AeLP, an intelligent tutoring system developed by Smart Sparrow. The pilot was run for Australian pathologists and trainees through the education section of Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia website over a period of 9 months. Feedback on the usability, impact on learning and any technical issues was obtained using 5-point Likert scale items and open-ended feedback in online questionnaires. Results: A total of 181 pathologists and pathology trainees anonymously attempted the three adaptive tutorials, a smaller proportion of whom went on to provide feedback at the end of each tutorial. VMATs were perceived as effective and efficient E-learning tools for pathology education. User feedback was positive. There were no significant technical issues. Conclusion: During this pilot, the user feedback on the educational content and interface and the lack of technical issues were helpful. Large scale trials of similar online cytopathology adaptive tutorials were planned for the future.

  14. Sliding Mode Methodology Vs. Computed Torque Methodology Using MATLAB/SIMULINK and Their Integration into Graduate Nonlinear Control Courses

    Farzin Piltan

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available Design a nonlinear controller for second order nonlinear uncertain dynamical systems is one ofthe most important challenging works. This paper focuses on the design, implementation andanalysis of a chattering free sliding mode controller for highly nonlinear dynamic PUMA robotmanipulator and compare to computed torque controller, in presence of uncertainties. In order toprovide high performance nonlinear methodology, sliding mode controller and computed torquecontroller are selected. Pure sliding mode controller and computed torque controller can be usedto control of partly known nonlinear dynamic parameters of robot manipulator. Conversely, puresliding mode controller is used in many applications; it has an important drawback namely;chattering phenomenon which it can causes some problems such as saturation and heat themechanical parts of robot manipulators or drivers. In order to reduce the chattering this researchis used the linear saturation function boundary layer method instead of switching function methodin pure sliding mode controller. These simulation models are developed as a part of a softwarelaboratory to support and enhance graduate/undergraduate robotics courses, nonlinear controlcourses and MATLAB/SIMULINK courses at research and development company (SSP Co.research center, Shiraz, Iran.

  15. Sliding Mode Extremum Seeking Control Scheme Based on PSO for Maximum Power Point Tracking in Photovoltaic Systems

    Her-Terng Yau

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available An extremum seeking control (ESC scheme is proposed for maximum power point tracking (MPPT in photovoltaic power generation systems. The robustness of the proposed scheme toward irradiance changes is enhanced by implementing the ESC scheme using a sliding mode control (SMC law. In the proposed approach, the chattering phenomenon caused by high frequency switching is suppressed by means of a sliding layer concept. Moreover, in implementing the proposed controller, the optimal value of the gain constant is determined using a particle swarm optimization (PSO algorithm. The experimental and simulation results show that the proposed PSO-based sliding mode ESC (SMESC control scheme yields a better transient response, steady-state stability, and robustness than traditional MPPT schemes based on gradient detection methods.

  16. Adaptive Control Using Residual Mode Filters Applied to Wind Turbines

    Frost, Susan A.; Balas, Mark J.

    2011-01-01

    Many dynamic systems containing a large number of modes can benefit from adaptive control techniques, which are well suited to applications that have unknown parameters and poorly known operating conditions. In this paper, we focus on a model reference direct adaptive control approach that has been extended to handle adaptive rejection of persistent disturbances. We extend this adaptive control theory to accommodate problematic modal subsystems of a plant that inhibit the adaptive controller by causing the open-loop plant to be non-minimum phase. We will augment the adaptive controller using a Residual Mode Filter (RMF) to compensate for problematic modal subsystems, thereby allowing the system to satisfy the requirements for the adaptive controller to have guaranteed convergence and bounded gains. We apply these theoretical results to design an adaptive collective pitch controller for a high-fidelity simulation of a utility-scale, variable-speed wind turbine that has minimum phase zeros.

  17. Fuzzy Sliding Mode Observer with Grey Prediction for the Estimation of the State-of-Charge of a Lithium-Ion Battery

    Daehyun Kim

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available We propose a state-of-charge (SOC estimation method for Li-ion batteries that combines a fuzzy sliding mode observer (FSMO with grey prediction. Unlike the existing methods based on a conventional first-order sliding mode observer (SMO and an adaptive gain SMO, the proposed method eliminates chattering in SOC estimation. In this method, which uses a fuzzy inference system, the gains of the SMO are adjusted according to the predicted future error and present estimation error of the terminal voltage. To forecast the future error value, a one-step-ahead terminal voltage prediction is obtained using a grey predictor. The proposed estimation method is validated through two types of discharge tests (a pulse discharge test and a random discharge test. The SOC estimation results are compared to the results of the conventional first-order SMO-based and the adaptive gain SMO-based methods. The experimental results show that the proposed method not only reduces chattering, but also improves estimation accuracy.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available This study compares the power system stabilizer based on sliding mode control with the fuzzy power system stabilizer for Single Machine Infinite Bus System (SMIB. Using the sliding mode control, a range is obtained for the changes in system parameters; and a stabilizer is designed to have a proper performance in this wide range.

The results of simulations performed on the model of nonlinear system shows good performance of sliding mode controller and the Fuzzy controller. SMIB system was selected because of its simple structure, which is very useful in understanding the effects and implications of the PSS.

  19. Adaptive sliding control of non-autonomous active suspension systems with time-varying loadings

    Chen, Po-Chang; Huang, An-Chyau

    2005-04-01

    An adaptive sliding controller is proposed in this paper for controlling a non-autonomous quarter-car suspension system with time-varying loadings. The bound of the car-body loading is assumed to be available. Then, the reference coordinate is placed at the static position under the nominal loading so that the system dynamic equation is derived. Due to spring nonlinearities, the system property becomes asymmetric after coordinate transformation. Besides, in practical cases, system parameters are not easy to be obtained precisely for controller design. Therefore, in this paper, system uncertainties are lumped into two unknown time-varying functions. Since the variation bound of one of the unknown functions is not available, conventional adaptive schemes and robust designs are not applicable. To deal with this problem, the function approximation technique is employed to represent the unknown function as a finite combination of basis functions. The Lyapunov direct method can thus be used to find adaptive laws for updating coefficients in the approximating series and to prove stability of the closed-loop system. Since the position and velocity measurements of the unsprung mass are lumped into the unknown function, there is no need to install sensors on the axle and wheel assembly in the actual implementation. Simulation results are presented to show the performance of the proposed strategy.

  20. Design and implementation of a new modified sliding mode controller for grid-connected inverter to controlling the voltage and frequency.

    Ghanbarian, Mohammad Mehdi; Nayeripour, Majid; Rajaei, Amirhossein; Mansouri, Mohammad Mahdi

    2016-03-01

    As the output power of a microgrid with renewable energy sources should be regulated based on the grid conditions, using robust controllers to share and balance the power in order to regulate the voltage and frequency of microgrid is critical. Therefore a proper control system is necessary for updating the reference signals and determining the proportion of each inverter in the microgrid control. This paper proposes a new adaptive method which is robust while the conditions are changing. This controller is based on a modified sliding mode controller which provides adapting conditions in linear and nonlinear loads. The performance of the proposed method is validated by representing the simulation results and experimental lab results. PMID:26704720

    2009-12-01

    Nonlinear sliding surface design in variable structure systems for spacecraft attitude control problems is studied. A robustness analysis is performed for regular form of system, and calculation of actuator bandwidth is presented by reviewing sliding surface dynamics. To achieve non-singular attitude description and minimal parameterization, spacecraft attitude control problems are considered based on modified Rodrigues parameters (MRP). It is shown that the derived controller ensures the sliding motion in pre-determined region irrespective of unmodeled effects and disturbances.

  2. LQ optimal and reaching law-based sliding modes for inventory management systems

    Ignaciuk, Przemysław; Bartoszewicz, Andrzej

    2012-01-01

    In this article, the theory of discrete sliding-mode control is used to design new supply strategies for periodic-review inventory systems. In the considered systems, the stock used to fulfil an unknown, time-varying demand can be replenished from a single supply source or from multiple suppliers procuring orders with different delays. The proposed strategies guarantee that demand is always entirely satisfied from the on-hand stock (yielding the maximum service level), and the warehouse capacity is not exceeded (which eliminates the cost of emergency storage). In contrast to the classical, stochastic approaches, in this article, we focus on optimising the inventory system dynamics. The parameters of the first control strategy are selected by minimising a quadratic cost functional. Next, it is shown how the system dynamical performance can be improved by applying the concept of a reaching law with the appropriately adjusted reaching phase. The stable, nonoscillatory behaviour of the closed-loop system is demonstrated and the properties of the designed controllers are discussed and strictly proved.

  3. LQ Optimal Sliding Mode Control of Periodic Review Perishable Inventories with Transportation Losses

    Piotr Leśniewski

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available In this work we apply the control-theoretic approach to design a new replenishment strategy for inventory systems with perishable stock. Such systems are supposed to effectively satisfy an unknown and permanently time-varying consumers’ demand. The main obstacle of achieving this goal is the need of obtaining supplies from a distant source. During the supply process goods are inevitably lost due to various causes. Furthermore, those goods which successfully arrive at the distribution center still deteriorate while stored in its warehouse. We explicitly take into account both of these factors in designing our control strategy. We propose a sliding mode strategy and choose its parameters to minimize a quadratic quality criterion. This approach allows us to ameliorate the bullwhip effect (the amplification of the demand variations when going up in the supply chain. The control strategy proposed in this work ensures bounded orders, guarantees full consumers’ demand satisfaction, and eliminates the risk of exceeding the warehouse capacity. These properties are stated in three theorems and proved in the paper.

  4. Chattering-Free Neuro-Sliding Mode Control of 2-DOF Planar Parallel Manipulators

    Tien Dung Le

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a novel chattering free neuro‐sliding mode controller for the trajectory tracking control of two degrees of freedom (DOF parallel manipulators which have a complicated dynamic model, including modelling uncertainties, frictional uncertainties and external disturbances. A feedforward neural network (NN is combined with an error estimator to completely compensate the large nonlinear uncertainties and external disturbances of the parallel manipulators. The online weight tuning algorithms of the NN and the structure of the error estimator are derived with the strict theoretical stability proof of the Lyapunov theorem. The upper bound of uncertainties and the upper bound of the approximation errors are not required to be known in advance in order to guarantee the stability of the closed‐loop system. The example simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy for the tracking control of a 2‐DOF parallel manipulator. It results in its being chattering‐free, very small tracking errors and its robustness against uncertainties and external disturbances.

  5. State observer-based sliding mode control for semi-active hydro-pneumatic suspension

    Ren, Hongbin; Chen, Sizhong; Zhao, Yuzhuang; Liu, Gang; Yang, Lin

    2016-02-01

    This paper proposes an improved virtual reference model for semi-active suspension to coordinate the vehicle ride comfort and handling stability. The reference model combines the virtues of sky-hook with ground-hook control logic, and the hybrid coefficient is tuned according to the longitudinal and lateral acceleration so as to improve the vehicle stability especially in high-speed condition. Suspension state observer based on unscented Kalman filter is designed. A sliding mode controller (SMC) is developed to track the states of the reference model. The stability of the SMC strategy is proven by means of Lyapunov function taking into account the nonlinear damper characteristics and sprung mass variation of the vehicle. Finally, the performance of the controller is demonstrated under three typical working conditions: the random road excitation, speed bump road and sharp acceleration and braking. The simulation results indicated that, compared with the traditional passive suspension, the proposed control algorithm can offer a better coordination between vehicle ride comfort and handling stability. This approach provides a viable alternative to costlier active suspension control systems for commercial vehicles.

  6. A sliding-mode-based observer to identify faults in FBG sensors embedded in composite structures

    Cazzulani, Gabriele; Cinquemani, Simone; Ronchi, Marco

    2016-04-01

    Optical strain gauges, such as Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG), have a great potential for smart structures, thanks to their small transversal size and the possibility to make an array of many sensors. They can be embedded in composite structures and their effect on the structure is nearly negligible. These advantages make them very interesting in the field of active vibration suppression. Unfortunately their low reliability is an obstacle to their use in such applications. For this reason, this paper introduces a fault identification algorithm to identify online those sensors which are not working correctly. The algorithm is based on the use of a sliding mode observer to estimate the coherence of measurements, and then to highlight possible faults. Once identified, the corresponding sensors can be excluded from the feedback loop of the control algorithm to avoid unwanted behaviors or instabilities. Numerical and experimental tests have been carried out on a carbon fiber structure considering different fault conditions. Results show it is possible to identify the faulty sensors and thus improve the signals used in the feedback loop.

  7. Design Sliding Mode Modified Fuzzy Linear Controller with Application to Flexible Robot Manipulator

    Mahdi Mirshekaran

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This paper studies the use of Modified Proportional-Integral-Derivative Sliding Mode Controller (MPIDSMC control used to control a flexible manipulator. The control gain in the MPIDSMC controller has been determined in an empirical way so far. It is a considerable time-consuming process because the control performance depends not only on the control gain but also on the other parameters such as the payload, references and PID joint servo gains. Hence, the control gain must be tuned considering the other parameters. In order to find the optimal control gain for the MPIDSMC controller, a fuzzy logic approach is proposed in this paper. The proposed fuzzy logic scheme finds an optimum control gain that minimizes the tip vibration for the end effector of the flexible manipulator. Tuned gain response results are compared to results for other types of gains. The effectiveness of using the fuzzy logic appears in the reduction of the computational time and the ability to tune the gain with different loading condition and input parameters.

    Ataei, Mohammad; Hooshmand, Rahmat-Allah; Samani, Siavash Golmohammadi

    2014-03-01

    For the participation of the steam power plants in regulating the network frequency, boilers and turbines should be co-ordinately controlled in addition to the base load productions. Lack of coordinated control over boiler-turbine may lead to instability; oscillation in producing power and boiler parameters; reduction in the reliability of the unit; and inflicting thermodynamic tension on devices. This paper proposes a boiler-turbine coordinated multivariable control system based on improved sliding mode controller (ISMC). The system controls two main boiler-turbine parameters i.e., the turbine revolution and superheated steam pressure of the boiler output. For this purpose, a comprehensive model of the system including complete and exact description of the subsystems is extracted. The parameters of this model are determined according to our case study that is the 320MW unit of Islam-Abad power plant in Isfahan/Iran. The ISMC method is simulated on the power plant and its performance is compared with the related real PI (proportional-integral) controllers which have been used in this unit. The simulation results show the capability of the proposed controller system in controlling local network frequency and superheated steam pressure in the presence of load variations and disturbances of boiler.

The output for solar module is connected to the battery. So the supply is given continuously by the battery to the system. The output of the solar may vary due to the radiation and will affect the battery. So the lifetime of battery is reduced.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The rollover accidents induced by severe maneuvers are very dangerous and mostly happen to vehicles with elevated center of gravity, such as heavy-duty trucks and pickup trucks. Unfortunately, it is hard for drivers of those vehicles to predict and prevent the trend of the maneuver-induced (untripped rollover ahead of time. In this study, a lateral load transfer ratio which reflects the load distribution of left and right tires is used to indicate the rollover criticality. An antiroll controller is designed with smooth sliding mode control technique for vehicles, in which an active antiroll suspension is installed. A simplified second order roll dynamic model with additive sector bounded uncertainties is used for control design, followed by robust stability analysis. Combined with the vehicle dynamics simulation package TruckSim, MATLAB/Simulink is used for simulating experiment. The results show that the applied controller can improve the roll stability under some typical steering maneuvers, such as Fishhook and J-turn. This direct antiroll control method could be more effective for untripped rollover prevention when driver deceleration or steering is too late. It could also be extended to handle tripped rollovers.

    2008-07-01

    Many semi-active suspension systems have been investigated in various literatures in order to achieve lower energy consumption and as good performance as full-active suspension systems. Full-active suspension systems can achieve a good ride quality by actuators; however, their implementation equipments are expensive. The full-active suspensions are perfect from the point of view of control; hence, semi-active control laws with performance similar to full-active controls have attracted the engineering community for their ease and lower cost of implementation. This paper presents a new active following fuzzy output feedback sliding mode control for a real-vehicle semi-active suspension system. The performance of the proposed controller has been verified by comparing it with passive control and also with the full-active target semi-active approximation control method. In the experiment, it was shown that the proposed method has the effectiveness in stabilizing heave, roll and pitch movement of the car body.

    Highlights: • Higher order Sliding Mode Control system has been presented for core power control. • The reactor core has been simulated based on the point kinetics equations. • The model assumes feedback from lumped fuel and coolant temperatures. • The effect of xenon concentration was also included. • The control system is guaranteed to be stable within a large range. - Abstract: Reactor power control is one of the most important problems in a nuclear power plant. This paper presents the higher order sliding mode controller (H.O.S.M.C.) which is a robust nonlinear controller for a nuclear research reactor considering the effect of xenon concentration during load following operation. Sliding mode controllers for nuclear reactors were developed before. Traditional sliding mode technique has intrinsic problem of chattering. To cope with this problem higher order sliding mode (HOSM) is used. The nonlinear model of a research reactor (Pakistan Research Reactor-1) has been used for higher order sliding mode controller design and performance evaluation. The reactor core is simulated based on the point kinetics equations and three delayed neutron groups. The model assumes feedback from lumped fuel and coolant temperatures. The effect of xenon concentration is also included. The employed method is easy to implement in practical applications and moreover, the higher order sliding mode control exhibits the desired dynamic behavior during the entire output-tracking process. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed controller in terms of performance, stability and robustness against disturbances

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a strategy of a new optimal sliding-mode control for flight control system with state constraints so that the system guarantees the optimal performance index. Besides, the strategy ensures strong robustness to the internal parametric uncertainty and the external disturbances. In order to have fast transient response speed as well as good tracking accuracy, the integral of the time multiplied by the absolute displacement tracking error is introduced as the performance index.

Finally, the authors conduct the semi physical simulation on Qball-X4 quad-rotor helicopter, showing the effectiveness of the proposed strategy.

  2. Sliding mode fault detection and fault-tolerant control of smart dampers in semi-active control of building structures

    Yeganeh Fallah, Arash; Taghikhany, Touraj

    2015-12-01

    Recent decades have witnessed much interest in the application of active and semi-active control strategies for seismic protection of civil infrastructures. However, the reliability of these systems is still in doubt as there remains the possibility of malfunctioning of their critical components (i.e. actuators and sensors) during an earthquake. This paper focuses on the application of the sliding mode method due to the inherent robustness of its fault detection observer and fault-tolerant control. The robust sliding mode observer estimates the state of the system and reconstructs the actuators’ faults which are used for calculating a fault distribution matrix. Then the fault-tolerant sliding mode controller reconfigures itself by the fault distribution matrix and accommodates the fault effect on the system. Numerical simulation of a three-story structure with magneto-rheological dampers demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed fault-tolerant control system. It was shown that the fault-tolerant control system maintains the performance of the structure at an acceptable level in the post-fault case.

  3. Sliding mode control for Lorentz-augmented spacecraft hovering around elliptic orbits

    Huang, Xu; Yan, Ye; Zhou, Yang; Zhang, Hua

    2014-10-01

    A Lorentz spacecraft is an electrostatically charged space vehicle that could actively modulate its surface charge to generate Lorentz force as it moves through the planetary magnetic field. The induced Lorentz force provides propellantless electromagnetic propulsion for orbital maneuvering, such as spacecraft hovering that the chaser thrusts continuously to create an equilibrium state at the desired position relative to the target. Due to the fact that the direction of Lorentz force is determined by the local magnetic field and the velocity of the spacecraft with respect to the local magnetic field, which does not necessarily coincide with that of the required control acceleration for hovering, thus, in most cases, the Lorentz force works as a means of auxiliary propulsion to reduce the expenditure of fuel onboard. And that is why it is called Lorentz-augmented hovering. A dynamical model for Lorentz-augmented hovering around elliptic orbits is developed based upon the assumption that the Earth's magnetic field could be modeled as a tilted dipole that corotates with Earth. Fuel-optimal open-loop control laws are then derived based on the proposed dynamical model, presenting the optimal trajectories of the required specific charge of Lorentz spacecraft and the thruster-generated control acceleration. Considering the external disturbances that may drift the desired hovering position, a closed-loop integral sliding mode controller is also designed to guarantee the tracking of optimal control trajectories, ensuring the robustness of the system against perturbations. Numerical simulations are presented to analyze the characteristics of Lorentz-augmented hovering around eccentric orbits and the results substantiate the validity of the proposed open-loop and closed-loop control methods.

    Nowadays, hydrogen fuel cell (FC) based systems emerge as one promising renewable alternative to fossil fuel systems in automotive and residential applications. However, their output dynamic response is relatively slow, mostly due to water and reactant gases dynamics. To overcome this limitation, FC-super capacitors (SCs) topologies can be used. The latter is capable of managing very fast power variations, presenting in addition high power density, long life cycle and good charge/discharge efficiency. In this work, a FC-SCs-based autonomous hybrid system for residential applications is considered. The FC and SCs are connected in parallel, through two separate DC/DC converters, to a DC bus. Under steady state conditions, the FC must deliver the load power requirement, while maintaining the SCs voltage regulated to the desired value. Under sudden load variations, the FC current rate must be limited to assure a safe transition to the new point of operation. During this current rate limitation mode, the SCs must deliver or absorb the power difference. To this end, a sliding mode strategy is proposed to satisfy to control objectives. The main one is the robust regulation of the DC bus voltage, even in the presence of system uncertainties and disturbances, such as load changes and FC voltage variations. Additionally, a second control objective is attained, namely to guarantee the adequate level of charge in the SCs, once the FC reaches the new steady state operation point. In this way, the system can meet the load power demand, even under sudden changes, and it can also satisfy a power demand higher than the nominal FC power, during short periods. The proposed control strategy is evaluated exhaustively by computer simulation considering fast load variations. The results presented in this work, corresponds to the first stage of a R and D collaboration project for the design and development of a novel FC-SCs-based autonomous hybrid system. In the next phase, the proposed

    2016-01-01

    This book provides readers with alternative robust approaches to control design for an important class of systems characteristically associated with ocean-going vessels and structures. These systems, which include crane vessels, on-board cranes, radar gimbals, and a conductivity temperature and depth winch, are modelled as manipulators with oscillating bases. One design approach is based on the H-infinity control framework exploiting an effective combination of PD control, an extended matrix polytope and a robust stability analysis method with a state-dependent coefficient form. The other is based on sliding-mode control using some novel nonlinear sliding surfaces. The model demonstrates how successful motion control can be achieved by suppressing base oscillations and in the presence of uncertainties. This is important not only for ocean engineering systems in which the problems addressed here originate but more generally as a benchmark platform for robust motion control with disturbance rejection.

A practical implementation of the controller is realised using a laboratory set-up. The performance and the validity of the controller are shown experimentally.

    We propose an integral sliding mode controller (ISMC) to stabilse an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) which is subject to modelling errors and often suffers from unknown environmental disturbances. The ISMC is effective in compensating for the uncertainties in the hydrodynamic and hydrostatic parameters of the vehicle and rejecting the unpredictable disturbance effects due to ocean waves, tides and currents. The ISMC is comprised of an equivalent controller and a switching controller to suppress the parameter uncertainties and external disturbances, and its closed-loop system is exponentially stable. Numerical simulations were performed to validate the proposed control approach, and experimental tests using Cyclops AUV were carried out to demonstrate its practical feasibility.

  16. Nonlinear torque and air-to-fuel ratio control of spark ignition engines using neuro-sliding mode techniques.

    Huang, Ting; Javaherian, Hossein; Liu, Derong

    2011-06-01

    This paper presents a new approach for the calibration and control of spark ignition engines using a combination of neural networks and sliding mode control technique. Two parallel neural networks are utilized to realize a neuro-sliding mode control (NSLMC) for self-learning control of automotive engines. The equivalent control and the corrective control terms are the outputs of the neural networks. Instead of using error backpropagation algorithm, the network weights of equivalent control are updated using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. Moreover, a new approach is utilized to update the gain of corrective control. Both modifications of the NSLMC are aimed at improving the transient performance and speed of convergence. Using the data from a test vehicle with a V8 engine, we built neural network models for the engine torque (TRQ) and the air-to-fuel ratio (AFR) dynamics and developed NSLMC controllers to achieve tracking control. The goal of TRQ control and AFR control is to track the commanded values under various operating conditions. From simulation studies, the feasibility and efficiency of the approach are illustrated. For both control problems, excellent tracking performance has been achieved. PMID:21656924

  17. Robust fractional order sliding mode control of doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind turbines.

    Ebrahimkhani, Sadegh

    2016-07-01

    Wind power plants have nonlinear dynamics and contain many uncertainties such as unknown nonlinear disturbances and parameter uncertainties. Thus, it is a difficult task to design a robust reliable controller for this system. This paper proposes a novel robust fractional-order sliding mode (FOSM) controller for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind energy conversion system. In order to enhance the robustness of the control system, uncertainties and disturbances are estimated using a fractional order uncertainty estimator. In the proposed method a continuous control strategy is developed to achieve the chattering free fractional order sliding-mode control, and also no knowledge of the uncertainties and disturbances or their bound is assumed. The boundedness and convergence properties of the closed-loop signals are proven using Lyapunov׳s stability theory. Simulation results in the presence of various uncertainties were carried out to evaluate the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed control scheme. PMID:27018145

  18. Switching sliding mode force tracking control of piezoelectric-hydraulic pump-based friction element actuation systems for automotive transmissions

    In this study, a nonlinear sliding-mode controller is designed for force tracking of a piezoelectric-hydraulic pump (PHP)-based actuation system, which is developed to replace the current electro-hydraulic actuation systems for automatic transmission (AT) friction elements, such as band brakes or clutches. By utilizing the PHP, one can eliminate the various hydraulic components (oil pump, regulating valve and control valve) in current ATs and achieve a simpler configuration with more efficient operation. With the derived governing equation of motion of the PHP-based actuation system integrated with the friction element (band brake), a switching control law is synthesized based on the sliding-mode theory. To evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed control law, its force tracking performance for the engagement of a friction element during an AT 1→2 up-shift is examined experimentally. It is shown that one can successfully track the desired force trajectory for AT shift control with small tracking error. This study demonstrates the potential of the PHP as a new controllable actuation system for AT friction elements

  20. Position control of elevator based on non-singular terminal sliding mode%基于非奇异终端滑模的物料提升机位置控制

    姚来鹏; 侯保林

    2015-01-01

    When implementing different tasks, the servo systems of elevator must adapt to various working loads with different weight or inertia, which may lead to the remarkable variation of system inertial parameters. Due to uncertain inertial parameters, the traditional proportional-integral-differential (PID )control algorithm has poor robustness and cannot achieve high-accuracy position control. A novel nonlinear control scheme is needed to deal with the problem of uncertain inertial parameters. To realize position control with high accuracy and stability for the elevator with uncertain inertial parameters, a control method based on global non-singular terminal sliding mode was proposed for a single-bucket-chain elevator. By adding a nonlinear term to the conventional linear sliding mode surface, the terminal sliding mode could make the system state converge to the sliding surface in finite time. The global non-singular terminal sliding mode technique was used for elevator system to achieve robust stability and guarantee transient response, and the boundary layer control was adopted to avoid chattering introduced by control switching. The stability of the closed-loop system was guaranteed based on the Lyapunov theory. Firstly, the dynamic model of the single-bucket-chain elevator was set up based on the Lagrange method. Secondly, a controller based on global non-singular terminal sliding mode was designed for a single-bucket-chain elevator. Finally, to illustrate the proposed controller with the global non-singular terminal sliding mode had better performances than the continuous feedback controller based on implicit Lyapunov function, numerical simulations had been carried out on the basis of MATLAB/Simulink simulation platform. The position response, speed response and the control input response of hoist part and rotation part were analyzed respectively. The position response results showed that the maximum overshoot by global non-singular terminal sliding mode method

ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are examples of such advanced autonomous systems added. Advanced systems have several operational modes and it has been observed that drivers could be unaware of the mode they are in during vehicle operation, which can be a contributing factor of traffic accidents. In this study, possible mode confusions in a simulated environment when vehicles are equipped with an adaptive cruise control system were investigated. The mental model of the system was designed and verified using the formal analysis method. Then, the user interface was designed on the basis of those of the current cruise control systems. A set of human-in-loop experiments was conducted to observe possible mode confusions and redesign the user interface to reduce them. In conclusion, the clarity and transparency of the user interface was proved to be as important as the correctness and compactness of the mental model when reducing mode confusions.

The mental model of the system was designed and verified using the formal analysis method. Then, the user interface was designed on the basis of those of the current cruise control systems. A set of human-in-loop experiments was conducted to observe possible mode confusions and redesign the user interface to reduce them. In conclusion, the clarity and transparency of the user interface was proved to be as important as the correctness and compactness of the mental model when reducing mode confusions

    Full Text Available Motor induksi tiga fasa banyak digunakan di industri, salah satunya pada industri pabrik gula. Di industri pabrik gula motor industri tiga fasa banyak digunakan pada mesin sentrifugal. Mesin ini digunakan pada proses pemisahan cairan massacuite dan strup hingga didapat kristal gula. Pada proses tersebut terjadi perubahan beban oleh karena itu pada siklus kecepatannya mengalami proses Charging, Spinning dan Discharging. Pengaturan kecepatan motor induksi masih dilakukan secara manual yaitu dengan merubah posisi puli atau ukuran poros dari mesin sentrifugal. Pengaturan dengan metode ini mengakibatkan kecepatan motor akan sulit dikendalikan sesuai dengan yang diharapkan. Pengaturan kecepatan yang tidak tepat juga dapat mengakibatkan hasil produksi gula yang kurang maksimal. Oleh karena itu dibutuhkan metode kontrol untuk mengoptimalkan kecepatan setpoint motor saat mengalami proses Charging, Spinning dan Discharging. Metode kontrol yang digunakan adalah metode Sliding Mode Control. Kontroler SMC yang diimplementasikan pada PLC memiliki W= 10 dan α=0,2. Dari hasil analisa sliding surface diketahui bahwa semakin bertambahnya beban maka hitting time semakin lama. Hasil implementasi kontroler SMC yang digunakan terjadi error ± 6,6% pada kecepatan 300 rpm sedangkan pada kecepatan 800 rpm dan 200 rpm terjadi error ± 2,5%. Sehingga Tugas Akhir ini dapat membantu meningkatkan efisiensi mesin sentrifugal pada pabrik gula.

  5. Dynamic Sliding Mode Control Based on Multi-model Switching Laws for the Depth Control of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    Huanyin Zhou

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available This manuscript presents an improved control algorithm, called Dynamic Sliding Mode Control based on Multiple Models Switching Laws (DSMC-MMSL, for the control of the depth of the studied Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV system, the diving plane controller of which faces disturbances arising from the coupled states. The diving plane model is strongly coupled with the state variables, such as surge speeds and course angles. To achieve the desired dynamic performance, the proposed algorithm consists of two parts: the diving plane control part and the pitch control part, which is used to avoid large pitch angles. Some direct switching control laws are used for the two parts to avoid some impulse phenomena on the control executions. The error-states exponential decay is recommended to eliminate the chattering on the sliding surface. The DSMC-MMSL controller was successfully implemented and experimentally validated with the studied AUV system designed and built by Shenyang Institute of Automation. The results of some lake trials demonstrated that the depth control performances of the AUV system were as desired, and that the AUV system was robust enough for the coupled state variables under the DSMCMMSL algorithm control.

  8. Sliding Mode Control for Pressurized-Water Nuclear Reactors in load following operations with bounded xenon oscillations

    Highlights: • We present SMC which is a robust nonlinear controller to control the PWR power. • Xenon oscillations are kept bounded within acceptable limits. • The stability analysis has been based on Lyapunov approach. • Simulation results indicate the high performance of this new control. - Abstract: One of the important operations in nuclear power plants is load-following in which imbalance of axial power distribution induces xenon oscillations. These oscillations must be maintained within acceptable limits otherwise the nuclear power plant could become unstable. Therefore, bounded xenon oscillation considered to be a constraint for the load-following operation. In this paper, sliding mode control (SMC) which is a robust nonlinear controller is designed to control the Pressurized-Water Nuclear Reactor (PWR) power for the load-following operation problem that ensures xenon oscillations are kept bounded within acceptable limits. The proposed controller uses constant axial offset (AO) strategy to maintain xenon oscillations to be bounded. The constant AO is a robust state constraint for load-following problem. The reactor core is simulated based on the two-point nuclear reactor model and one delayed neutron group. The stability analysis is given by means Lyapunov approach, thus the control system is guaranteed to be stable within a large range. The employed method is easy to implement in practical applications and moreover, the sliding mode control exhibits the desired dynamic properties during the entire output-tracking process independent of perturbations. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed controller in terms of performance, robustness and stability. Results show that the proposed controller for the load-following operation is sufficiently effective so that the xenon oscillations are kept bounded in the considered region

  9. Nonlinear mode decomposition: A noise-robust, adaptive decomposition method

    Iatsenko, Dmytro; McClintock, Peter V. E.; Stefanovska, Aneta

    2015-09-01

    The signals emanating from complex systems are usually composed of a mixture of different oscillations which, for a reliable analysis, should be separated from each other and from the inevitable background of noise. Here we introduce an adaptive decomposition tool—nonlinear mode decomposition (NMD)—which decomposes a given signal into a set of physically meaningful oscillations for any wave form, simultaneously removing the noise. NMD is based on the powerful combination of time-frequency analysis techniques—which, together with the adaptive choice of their parameters, make it extremely noise robust—and surrogate data tests used to identify interdependent oscillations and to distinguish deterministic from random activity. We illustrate the application of NMD to both simulated and real signals and demonstrate its qualitative and quantitative superiority over other approaches, such as (ensemble) empirical mode decomposition, Karhunen-Loève expansion, and independent component analysis. We point out that NMD is likely to be applicable and useful in many different areas of research, such as geophysics, finance, and the life sciences. The necessary matlab codes for running NMD are freely available for download.

  10. Adapted G-mode Clustering Method applied to Asteroid Taxonomy

    Hasselmann, Pedro H.; Carvano, Jorge M.; Lazzaro, D.

    2013-11-01

    The original G-mode was a clustering method developed by A. I. Gavrishin in the late 60's for geochemical classification of rocks, but was also applied to asteroid photometry, cosmic rays, lunar sample and planetary science spectroscopy data. In this work, we used an adapted version to classify the asteroid photometry from SDSS Moving Objects Catalog. The method works by identifying normal distributions in a multidimensional space of variables. The identification starts by locating a set of points with smallest mutual distance in the sample, which is a problem when data is not planar. Here we present a modified version of the G-mode algorithm, which was previously written in FORTRAN 77, in Python 2.7 and using NumPy, SciPy and Matplotlib packages. The NumPy was used for array and matrix manipulation and Matplotlib for plot control. The Scipy had a import role in speeding up G-mode, Scipy.spatial.distance.mahalanobis was chosen as distance estimator and Numpy.histogramdd was applied to find the initial seeds from which clusters are going to evolve. Scipy was also used to quickly produce dendrograms showing the distances among clusters. Finally, results for Asteroids Taxonomy and tests for different sample sizes and implementations are presented.

    Ramesh, Tejavathu; Panda, A. K.; Kumar, S. Shiva

    2013-08-01

    In this research study, the performance of direct torque and flux control induction motor drive (IMD) is presented using five different speed control techniques. The performance of IMD mainly depends on the design of speed controller. The PI speed controller requires precise mathematical model, continuous and appropriate gain values. Therefore, adaptive control based speed controller is desirable to achieve high-performance drive. The sliding-mode speed controller (SMSC) is developed to achieve continuous control of motor speed and torque. Furthermore, the type-1 fuzzy logic speed controller (T1FLSC), type-1 fuzzy SMSC and a new type-2 fuzzy logic speed controller are designed to obtain high performance, dynamic tracking behaviour, speed accuracy and also robustness to parameter variations. The performance of each control technique has been tested for its robustness to parameter uncertainties and load disturbances. The detailed comparison of different control schemes are carried out in a MATALB/Simulink environment at different speed operating conditions, such as, forward and reversal motoring under no-load, load and sudden change in speed.

    Boumediène Allaoua

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The development of electric vehicles power electronics system control comprising of DC-AC inverters and DC-DC converters takes a great interest of researchers in the modern industry. A DC-AC inverter supplies the high power electric vehicle motors torques of the propulsion system and utility loads, whereas a DC-DC converter supplies conventional low-power, low-voltage loads. However, the need for high power bidirectional DC-DC converters in future electric vehicles has led to the development of many new topologies of DC-DC converters. Nonlinear control of power converters is an active area of research in the fields of power electronics. This paper focuses on a fuzzy sliding mode strategy (FSMS as a control strategy for boost DC-DC converter power supply for electric vehicle. The proposed fuzzy controller specifies changes in the control signal based on the surface and the surface change knowledge to satisfy the sliding mode stability and attraction conditions. The performances of the proposed fuzzy sliding controller are compared to those obtained by a classical sliding mode controller. The satisfactory simulation results show the efficiency of the proposed control law which reduces the chattering phenomenon. Moreover, the obtained results prove the robustness of the proposed control law against variation of the load resistance and the input voltage of the studied converter.

  19. Adaptive Localization of Focus Point Regions via Random Patch Probabilistic Density from Whole-Slide, Ki-67-Stained Brain Tumor Tissue

    Yazan M. Alomari

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Analysis of whole-slide tissue for digital pathology images has been clinically approved to provide a second opinion to pathologists. Localization of focus points from Ki-67-stained histopathology whole-slide tissue microscopic images is considered the first step in the process of proliferation rate estimation. Pathologists use eye pooling or eagle-view techniques to localize the highly stained cell-concentrated regions from the whole slide under microscope, which is called focus-point regions. This procedure leads to a high variety of interpersonal observations and time consuming, tedious work and causes inaccurate findings. The localization of focus-point regions can be addressed as a clustering problem. This paper aims to automate the localization of focus-point regions from whole-slide images using the random patch probabilistic density method. Unlike other clustering methods, random patch probabilistic density method can adaptively localize focus-point regions without predetermining the number of clusters. The proposed method was compared with the k-means and fuzzy c-means clustering methods. Our proposed method achieves a good performance, when the results were evaluated by three expert pathologists. The proposed method achieves an average false-positive rate of 0.84% for the focus-point region localization error. Moreover, regarding RPPD used to localize tissue from whole-slide images, 228 whole-slide images have been tested; 97.3% localization accuracy was achieved.

  20. Tracking Control of an Ultrasonic Linear Motor Actuated Stage Using a Sliding-mode Controller with Friction Compensation

    Chih-Jer Lin

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to investigate the nonlinear friction and compensation for a piezoelectric ceramic ultrasonic motor (USM. Although the architecture of the USM is different from the general electric-mechanical motor, the mathematic model for the USM motor can use the same friction model to formulate the friction phenomenon. To establish the feed-forward controller, the system identification for the USM is needed to study to design the model-based controller. To obtain the optimal system parameters of the USM, PSO and CSS algorithms are studied to identify the system parameters for the nonlinear friction model. For the controller design, a non-model based controller, using back-propagation neural network controller to perform tracking tasks, and the model-based controller, which consists of the feed-forward controller based on the system identification and the sliding-mode control, are discussed in this paper. Finally, the two real-time tracking tasks are used to validate the proposed method.

  1. Design of Linear DC Motor Two-degree-of-freedom Positioning System using Model Reference type Sliding Mode Controller

    Urushihara, Shiro; Kamano, Takuya; Yura, Satoshi; Yasuno, Takashi; Suzuki, Takayuki

    One of fundamental problems in the factory automation is how to obtain linear motion. Linear motors produce directly the linear motion force without a motion-transform mechanism. Linear d.c. motors (LDMs) have excellent performance and controllability. However, the dynamics of small-sized LDMs is adversely affected by the dead-band due to the friction between brushes and commutators. In this paper, it is described that the design of the two-degree-of-freedom positioning system with a LDM using model reference type sliding mode controller (SMC). The proposed positioning system consists of a fixed gain feedforward controller and a SMC used as a feedback controller. The objective of the SMC is to repress the influence of nonlinear characteristics (the dead-band and parameter variations etc.). The tracking performance can be improved as the fixed gain feedforward controller makes a dynamic inverse system in the feedforward path. The effectiveness of the proposed system for improvement of the tracking performance is demonstrated by experimental results.

  2. Symmetric caging formation for convex polygonal object transportation by multiple mobile robots based on fuzzy sliding mode control.

    Dai, Yanyan; Kim, YoonGu; Wee, SungGil; Lee, DongHa; Lee, SukGyu

    2016-01-01

    In this paper, the problem of object caging and transporting is considered for multiple mobile robots. With the consideration of minimizing the number of robots and decreasing the rotation of the object, the proper points are calculated and assigned to the multiple mobile robots to allow them to form a symmetric caging formation. The caging formation guarantees that all of the Euclidean distances between any two adjacent robots are smaller than the minimal width of the polygonal object so that the object cannot escape. In order to avoid collision among robots, the parameter of the robots radius is utilized to design the caging formation, and the A⁎ algorithm is used so that mobile robots can move to the proper points. In order to avoid obstacles, the robots and the object are regarded as a rigid body to apply artificial potential field method. The fuzzy sliding mode control method is applied for tracking control of the nonholonomic mobile robots. Finally, the simulation and experimental results show that multiple mobile robots are able to cage and transport the polygonal object to the goal position, avoiding obstacles. PMID:26704719

  3. Fault-tolerant control of electric vehicles with in-wheel motors using actuator-grouping sliding mode controllers

    Li, Boyuan; Du, Haiping; Li, Weihua

    2016-05-01

    Although electric vehicles with in-wheel motors have been regarded as one of the promising vehicle architectures in recent years, the probability of in-wheel motor fault is still a crucial issue due to the system complexity and large number of control actuators. In this study, a modified sliding mode control (SMC) is applied to achieve fault-tolerant control of electric vehicles with four-wheel-independent-steering (4WIS) and four-wheel-independent-driving (4WID). Unlike in traditional SMC, in this approach the steering geometry is re-arranged according to the location of faulty wheels in the modified SMC. Three SMC control laws for longitudinal velocity control, lateral velocity control and yaw rate control are designed based on specific vehicle motion scenarios. In addition the actuator-grouping SMC method is proposed so that driving actuators are grouped and each group of actuators can be used to achieve the specific control target, which avoids the strong coupling effect between each control target. Simulation results prove that the proposed modified SMC can achieve good vehicle dynamics control performance in normal driving and large steering angle turning scenarios. In addition, the proposed actuator-grouping SMC can solve the coupling effect of different control targets and the control performance is improved.

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available This paper investigates governor design by reduced-order sliding mode for a hydropower plant with an upstream surge tank. The governing system is made up of a tunnel, a surge tank, a penstock, a wicket gate and servomechanism, a governor, a hydro-turbine and a grid. Concerning the components of the governing system, their mathematic models are established. Then, these models are interconnected to simulate the governing system. From the viewpoint of state space in modern control theory, the governing system is partially observed, which challenges the governor design. By introducing an additional state variable, the control method of reduced-order sliding mode is proposed, where the governor design is based on a reduced-order governing system. Since the governor is applied to the original governing system, the system stability is analyzed by means of the small gain theorem. An genetic algorithm is employed to search a group of parameters of the predefined sliding surface, and a fuzzy inference system is utilized to decrease the chattering problem. Some numerical simulations are illustrated to verify the feasibility and robustness of the control method.

  17. Anti-synchronization for a class of multi-dimensional autonomous and non-autonomous chaotic systems on the basis of the sliding mode with noise

    This paper focuses on anti-synchronization for a class of chaotic systems with noise on the basis of the sliding mode control strategy. In order to achieve this target, a proportional integral surface is proposed to simplify the task of assigning the performance of the error system in sliding motion. We use fewer control items but realize a globally and exponentially asymptotical anti-synchronization. Furthermore, three typical examples are presented: a three-dimensional (3D) autonomous chaotic system, a 4D autonomous chaotic system and a 5D non-autonomous chaotic system. Finally, simulation results are demonstrated for multi-dimensional chaotic systems to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme. (paper)

  19. Adaptive Control of Linear Modal Systems Using Residual Mode Filters and a Simple Disturbance Estimator

    Balas, Mark; Frost, Susan

    2012-01-01

    Flexible structures containing a large number of modes can benefit from adaptive control techniques which are well suited to applications that have unknown modeling parameters and poorly known operating conditions. In this paper, we focus on a direct adaptive control approach that has been extended to handle adaptive rejection of persistent disturbances. We extend our adaptive control theory to accommodate troublesome modal subsystems of a plant that might inhibit the adaptive controller. In some cases the plant does not satisfy the requirements of Almost Strict Positive Realness. Instead, there maybe be a modal subsystem that inhibits this property. This section will present new results for our adaptive control theory. We will modify the adaptive controller with a Residual Mode Filter (RMF) to compensate for the troublesome modal subsystem, or the Q modes. Here we present the theory for adaptive controllers modified by RMFs, with attention to the issue of disturbances propagating through the Q modes. We apply the theoretical results to a flexible structure example to illustrate the behavior with and without the residual mode filter.

  2. Vibration control of a ship engine system using high-load magnetorheological mounts associated with a new indirect fuzzy sliding mode controller

    In this work, a new high-load magnetorheological (MR) fluid mount system is devised and applied to control vibration in a ship engine. In the investigation of vibration-control performance, a new modified indirect fuzzy sliding mode controller is formulated and realized. The design of the proposed MR mount is based on the flow mode of MR fluid, and it includes two separated coils for generating a magnetic field. An optimization process is carried out to achieve maximal damping force under certain design constraints, such as the allowable height of the mount. As an actuating smart fluid, a new plate-like iron-particle-based MR fluid is used, instead of the conventional spherical iron-particle-based MR fluid. After evaluating the field-dependent yield stress of the MR fluid, the field-dependent damping force required to control unwanted vibration in the ship engine is determined. Subsequently, an appropriate-sized MR mount is manufactured and its damping characteristics are evaluated. After confirming the sufficient damping force level of the manufactured MR mount, a medium-sized ship engine mount system consisting of eight MR mounts is established, and its dynamic governing equations are derived. A new modified indirect fuzzy sliding mode controller is then formulated and applied to the engine mount system. The displacement and velocity responses show that the unwanted vibrations of the ship engine system can be effectively controlled in both the axial and radial directions by applying the proposed control methodology.

  7. Full-order sliding mode control of uncertain chaos in a permanent magnet synchronous motor based on a fuzzy extended state observer

    Chen, Qiang; Nan, Yu-Rong; Zheng, Heng-Huo; Ren, Xue-Mei

    2015-11-01

    A full-order sliding mode control based on a fuzzy extended state observer is proposed to control the uncertain chaos in the permanent magnet synchronous motor. Through a simple coordinate transformation, the chaotic PMSM model is transformed into the Brunovsky canonical form, which is more suitable for the controller design. Based on the fuzzy control theory, a fuzzy extended state observer is developed to estimate the unknown states and uncertainties, and the restriction that all the system states should be completely measurable is avoided. Thereafter, a full-order sliding mode controller is designed to ensure the convergence of all system states without any chattering problem. Comparative simulations show the effectiveness and superior performance of the proposed control method.

  8. Dynamic modeling of a hose-drogue aerial refueling system and integral sliding mode backstepping control for the hose whipping phenomenon

    Wang Haitao; Dong Xinmin; Xue Jianping; Liu Jiaolong

    2014-01-01

    Dynamic modeling of a hose-drogue aerial refueling system (HDARS) and an integral sliding mode backstepping controller design for the hose whipping phenomenon (HWP) during probe-drogue coupling are studied. Firstly, a dynamic model of the variable-length hose-drogue assembly is built for the sake of exploiting suppression methods for the whipping phenomenon. Based on the lumped parameter method, the hose is modeled by a series of variable-length links connected with frictionless joints. A set of iterative equations of the hose’s three-dimensional motion is derived subject to hose reeling in/out, tanker motion, gravity, and aerodynamic loads accounting for the effects of steady wind, atmospheric turbulence, and tanker wake. Secondly, relying on a permanent magnet synchronous motor and high-precision position sensors, a new active control strategy for the HWP on the basis of the relative position between the tanker and the receiver is proposed. Considering the strict-feedback configuration of the permanent magnet synchronous motor, a rotor position control law based on the backstepping method is designed to insure global stability. An integral of the rotor position error and an exponential sliding mode reaching law of the current errors are applied to enhance control accuracy and robustness. Finally, the simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed model and control laws.

    2014-06-18

    Effectively harvesting ambient mechanical energy is the key for realizing self-powered and autonomous electronics, which addresses limitations of batteries and thus has tremendous applications in sensor networks, wireless devices, and wearable/implantable electronics, etc. Here, a thin-film-based micro-grating triboelectric nanogenerator (MG-TENG) is developed for high-efficiency power generation through conversion of mechanical energy. The shape-adaptive MG-TENG relies on sliding electrification between complementary micro-sized arrays of linear grating, which offers a unique and straightforward solution in harnessing energy from relative sliding motion between surfaces. Operating at a sliding velocity of 10 m/s, a MG-TENG of 60 cm(2) in overall area, 0.2 cm(3) in volume and 0.6 g in weight can deliver an average output power of 3 W (power density of 50 mW cm(-2) and 15 W cm(-3)) at an overall conversion efficiency of ∼ 50%, making it a sufficient power supply to regular electronics, such as light bulbs. The scalable and cost-effective MG-TENG is practically applicable in not only harvesting various mechanical motions but also possibly power generation at a large scale. PMID:24692147

  11. Augmented Adaptive Control of a Wind Turbine in the Presence of Structural Modes

    Frost, Susan A.; Balas, Mark J.; Wright, Alan D.

    2010-01-01

    Wind turbines operate in highly turbulent environments resulting in aerodynamic loads that can easily excite turbine structural modes, potentially causing component fatigue and failure. Two key technology drivers for turbine manufacturers are increasing turbine up time and reducing maintenance costs. Since the trend in wind turbine design is towards larger, more flexible turbines with lower frequency structural modes, manufacturers will want to develop methods to operate in the presence of these modes. Accurate models of the dynamic characteristics of new wind turbines are often not available due to the complexity and expense of the modeling task, making wind turbines ideally suited to adaptive control. In this paper, we develop theory for adaptive control with rejection of disturbances in the presence of modes that inhibit the controller. We use this method to design an adaptive collective pitch controller for a high-fidelity simulation of a utility-scale, variable-speed wind turbine operating in Region 3. The objective of the adaptive pitch controller is to regulate generator speed, accommodate wind gusts, and reduce the interference of certain structural modes in feedback. The control objective is accomplished by collectively pitching the turbine blades. The adaptive pitch controller for Region 3 is compared in simulations with a baseline classical Proportional Integrator (PI) collective pitch controller.

A nonsingular terminal sliding mode and the control law of the observer are designed. The rotor flux of the motor is deduced using the designed control law. Meanwhile, the high-order sliding mode technique is adopted to eliminate the chattering phenomenon of the conventional sliding mode so that the control signal of the observer can be used directly for rotor flux estimation. Compared to conventional sliding mode observers, the proposed observer can estimate the system state with a higher precision. Further, it is insensitive to parameter variations. Simulation results validate the proposed method.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper proposes an integrated photovoltaic (PV and proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC system for continuous energy harvesting under various operating conditions for use with a brushless DC motor. The proposed scheme is based on the incremental conductance (IncCond algorithm combined with the sliding mode technique. Under changing atmospheric conditions, the energy conversion efficiency of a PV array is very low, leading to significant power losses. Consequently, increasing efficiency by means of maximum power point tracking (MPPT is particularly important. To manage such a hybrid system, control strategies need to be established to achieve the aim of the distributed system. Firstly, a Matlab/Simulink based model of the PV and PEMFC is developed and validated, as well as the incremental conductance sliding (ICS MPPT technique; then, different MPPT algorithms are employed to control the PV array under nonuniform temperature and insolation conditions, to study these algorithms effectiveness under various operating conditions. Conventional techniques are easy to implement but produce oscillations at MPP. Compared to these techniques, the proposed technique is more efficient; it produces less oscillation at MPP in the steady state and provides more precise tracking.

    Full Text Available This paper proposes a sliding mode extremum seeking control (SMESC of chaos embedded particle swarm optimization (CEPSO Algorithm, applied to the design of maximum power point tracking in wind power systems. Its features are that the control parameters in SMESC are optimized by CEPSO, making it unnecessary to change the output power of different wind turbines, the designed in-repetition rate is reduced, and the system control efficiency is increased.

    Full Text Available In order to reflect driving intention adequately and improve the launch performance of vehicle equipped with five-speed dry dual clutch transmission (DCT, the issue of coordinating control between engine and clutch is researched, which is based on the DCT and prototype car developed independently. Four-degree-of-freedom (DOF launch dynamics equations are established. Taking advantage of predictive control and genetic algorithm, target tracing curves of engine speed and vehicle velocity are optimally specified. Sliding mode variable structure (SMVS control strategy is designed to track these curves. The rapid prototyping experiment and test are, respectively, conducted on the DCT test bench and in the chassis dynamometer. Results show that the designed SMVS control strategy not only effectively embodies the driver’s intention but also has strong robustness to the vehicle parameter’s variations.

  19. Quick Local Repair Scheme using Adaptive Promiscuous Mode in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    Joo-Sang Youn

    2006-05-01

    Full Text Available In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs, there is frequently disconnected a route consisting of multi- hop from a source to a destination because of the dynamic nature such as the topology change caused by nodes’ mobility. To overcome this situation, existing routing protocols for MANETs have performed route repair scheme to repair the disconnected route. However, existing reactive routing protocols have the problem which is that a source node unnecessarily performs re-discovers the whole path when just one node moves, even if the rest of path needs not to be re-arranged. Therefore, the time for re-discovery of the whole path may often take too long. To solve the problem, we propose a new local repair scheme using promiscuous mode. Our scheme is mainly composed of two parts: adaptive promiscuous mode and quick local repair scheme. Adaptive promiscuous mode is to repeat the switching processes between promiscuous mode and nonpromiscuous mode to overcome energy limit caused by using promiscuous mode in overall time and quick local repair scheme is to fast perform the local re-route discovery process with the information of the active connection in the local area acquired by promiscuous mode. With simulation in the various number of connection, We demonstrate the better network performances achieved with the proposed schemes as compared with AODV as reference model that do not provide local repair scheme.

    Frost, Susan Alane; Balas, Mark J.; Wright, Alan D.

    2010-01-01

    Many challenges exist for the operation of wind turbines in an efficient manner that is reliable and avoids component fatigue and failure. Turbines operate in highly turbulent environments resulting in aerodynamic loads that can easily excite turbine structural modes, possibly causing component fatigue and failure. Wind turbine manufacturers are highly motivated to reduce component fatigue and failure that can lead to loss of revenue due to turbine down time and maintenance costs. The trend in wind turbine design is toward larger, more flexible turbines that are ideally suited to adaptive control methods due to the complexity and expense required to create accurate models of their dynamic characteristics. In this paper, we design an adaptive collective pitch controller for a high-fidelity simulation of a utility-scale, variable-speed horizontal axis wind turbine operating in Region 3. The objective of the adaptive pitch controller is to regulate generator speed, accommodate wind gusts, and reduce the excitation of structural modes in the wind turbine. The control objective is accomplished by collectively pitching the turbine blades. The adaptive collective pitch controller for Region 3 was compared in simulations with a baseline classical Proportional Integrator (PI) collective pitch controller. The adaptive controller will demonstrate the ability to regulate generator speed in Region 3, while accommodating gusts, and reducing the excitation of certain structural modes in the wind turbine.

    G.S. Mahalakshmi

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available Scheduling in piconets has emerged as a challenging research area. Interpiconet scheduling focuses on when a bridge is switched among various piconets and how a bridge node communicates with the masters in different piconets. This paper proposes an interpiconet scheduling algorithm named, hold mode based dynamic traffic priority load adaptive scheduling. The bridges are adaptively switched between the piconets according to various traffic loads. The main goal is to maximize the utilization of the bridge by reducing the bridge switch wastes, utilize intelligent decision making algorithm, resolve conflict between the masters, and allow negotiation for bridge utilization in HDPLIS using bridge failure-bridge repair procedure . The Hold mode - dynamic traffic - priority based - load adaptive scheduling reduces the number of bridge switch wastes and hence increases the efficiency of the bridge which results in increased performance of the system.

  3. An adaptive quantization method for burst mode synthetic aperture radar data

    Joo, T. H.; Held, D. N.

    1985-01-01

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has high data rate because it collects and processes the data coherently. The data rate limitation of the system has to be satisfied while maintaining good image quality. Thus, a quantizer with minimum data rate and high SNR should be employed. An adaptive quantization method is proposed for the burst mode SAR. This adaptive quantizer uses uniformly quantized data to select a subset of bits which is equivalent to changing the step size of the uniform quantizer. A simple implementation which uses the previous burst data to compute the local statistics for the bit selection is presented. The use of previous burst simplifies the implementation because it does not require storage or delay; however, an abrupt change in the terrain could result in incorrect bit selection. An error analysis of this implementation and comparison of two burst mode SAR images formed using the uniformly quantized and adaptively quantized data is presented.

    传统的滑模观测器采用开关函数,开关函数在切换过程中的高频抖动使得转子位置的估计出现一定的误差.通过对永磁同步电机的数学模型分析,提出用饱和函数代替开关函数,使得观测器处于准滑动模态,有效抑制高频抖动.同时,用扩展卡尔曼滤波器代替传统的低通滤波器,一方面进一步提高估计精度,另一方面省去低通滤波后的相位补偿.通过自适应的方式选取边界层的厚度,使得控制增益和抖动维持在最优状态.最后采用SIMULINK 进行仿真,对方案的有效性进行验证.%Switching function is adopted in conventional sliding mode observer (SMO) and a high-frequency jitter takes place in the switching process, so that a definite error occurs to the estimation of rotor position. By analyzing the mathematical model of permanent magnet synchronous Generator(PMSG), a saturation function was proposed to substitute for the switching function. When the saturation function was used, the observer would be in quasi-sliding mode and this could restrain the high-frequency jitter effectively. Meantime, the traditional low-pass filter could be replaced by Extended Kalman filters this on one hand could further increase the estimation accuracy, and on the other hand, could also save the phase compensation after low-pass filtering. In the design of SMO, the boundary layer thickness was selected by u-sing adaptive method, making the control gain and high-frequency jitter keep in an optimal state. Finally, SIMULINK simulation was carried out and the effectiveness of this method was verified with.

  6. Performance Analysis of DTC-SVM Sliding Mode Controllers-Based Parameters Estimator of Electric Motor Speed Drive

    Fatma Ben Salem

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper is concerned with a framework which unifies direct torque control space vector modulation (DTC-SVM and variable structure control (VSC. The result is a hybrid VSC-DTC-SVM controller design which eliminates several major limitations of the two individual controls and retains merits of both controllers. It has been shown that obtained control laws are very sensitive to variations of the stator resistance, the rotor resistance, and the mutual inductance. This paper discusses the performances of adaptive controllers of VSC-DTC-SVM monitored induction motor drive in a wide speed range and even in the presence of parameters uncertainties and mismatching disturbances. Better estimations of the stator resistance, the rotor resistance, and the mutual inductance yield improvements of induction motor performances using VSC-DTC-SVM, thereby facilitating torque ripple minimization.

    Full Text Available This study presents the design of a Fuzzy Static (FS and a Fuzzy Dynamic (FD Sliding-Mode Controllers (SMC for both basic and complete ball on beam system. At first, the FSSMC was designed for the simplified and the complete models. Then, the FDSMC was designed on the simplified and the comprehensive models of the system in which the ball is placed on a beam as well. In addition, the lyapunov stability and linearization were used to check the stability of the system. There is an in-built issue of chattering with (FSSMC. However, (FDSMC counter it well. Also, FDSMC is effective with respect to matched disturbance rejection. It has been found out from this research study that the designs of the models which utilize a FDSMC with a comprehensive model of the system were more efficient than the designs that utilize the basic system’s prototype. Lastly, a comprehensive comparative analysis is provided and MATLAB/SIMULINK outcomes confirm the dominance of FDSMC.

  9. A dual mode charge pump with adaptive output used in a class G audio power amplifier

    A dual mode charge pump to produce an adaptive power supply for a class G audio power amplifier is presented. According to the amplitude of the input signals, the charge pump has two level output voltage rails available to save power. It operates both in current mode at high output load and in pulse frequency modulation (PFM) at light load to reduce the power dissipation. Also, dynamic adjustment of the power stage transistor size based on load current at the PFM mode is introduced to reduce the output voltage ripple and prevent the switching frequency from audio range. The prototype is implemented in 0.18 μm 3.3 V CMOS technology. Experimental results show that the maximum power efficiency of the charge pump is 79.5% - 0.5x mode and 83.6% - 1x mode. The output voltage ripple is less than 15 mV while providing 120 mA of the load current at PFM control and less than 18 mV while providing 300 mA of the load current at current mode control. An analytical model for ripple voltage and efficiency calculation of the proposed PFM control demonstrates reasonable agreement with measured results. (semiconductor integrated circuits)

  15. Performance Comparison of Symmetric and Offset Reflector Antennas Adaptively Illuminated by Novel Triple Mode Feedhorn

    Satish K. Sharma

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Parabolic symmetric and offset reflector antennas adaptively illuminated using a novel triple-mode feedhorn (TE11+TM01+TE21 with different mode combinations and impedance and radiation performances are presented. The combination of the radiating modes in a feedhorn with proper amplitude and fixed phase values helps in electronically pointing the main beam of the radiating patterns such as that obtained in a beam-steering antenna with limited beam-scan range. This type of radiation performance virtually creates a displaced phase center location for the feedhorn, which, consequently, adaptively illuminates the reflector antenna surface. Impedance-matching bandwidths are preserved for both reflector antennas similar to the case of feedhorn alone. The copolarization gain and peak cross-polarization levels are far better with the offset reflector antenna than the symmetric reflector antenna. Such reflector antennas find applications in ground moving target indicator (GMTI and space based radars. The investigation results are solely computed using FEKO full-wave analysis tool.

    The Stratospheric airship has the characteristics of nonlinear and slowly time-varying parameters, etc. It also affected by the gusts and atmospheric turbulence in endurance, so the backstepping sliding mode technique is used to implement the robust attitude control of the airship and ensure the system to stability. To avoid the inherent chattering in variable structure control,the self- recurrent wavelet neural networks (SRWNN) are employed to adjust the size of the switch gain in real time. The self - recurrent elements of SRWNN can overcome the oscillation properties of wavelet functions, making estimation more smooth.

  19. Dip-separated structural filtering using seislet transform and adaptive empirical mode decomposition based dip filter

    Chen, Yangkang

    2016-07-01

    The seislet transform has been demonstrated to have a better compression performance for seismic data compared with other well-known sparsity promoting transforms, thus it can be used to remove random noise by simply applying a thresholding operator in the seislet domain. Since the seislet transform compresses the seismic data along the local structures, the seislet thresholding can be viewed as a simple structural filtering approach. Because of the dependence on a precise local slope estimation, the seislet transform usually suffers from low compression ratio and high reconstruction error for seismic profiles that have dip conflicts. In order to remove the limitation of seislet thresholding in dealing with conflicting-dip data, I propose a dip-separated filtering strategy. In this method, I first use an adaptive empirical mode decomposition based dip filter to separate the seismic data into several dip bands (5 or 6). Next, I apply seislet thresholding to each separated dip component to remove random noise. Then I combine all the denoised components to form the final denoised data. Compared with other dip filters, the empirical mode decomposition based dip filter is data-adaptive. One only needs to specify the number of dip components to be separated. Both complicated synthetic and field data examples show superior performance of my proposed approach than the traditional alternatives. The dip-separated structural filtering is not limited to seislet thresholding, and can also be extended to all those methods that require slope information.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available An adaptive slid mode controller was established for improving the handling stability of motorized electric vehicle (MEV. First and foremost, the structure and advantages of electric vehicle driven by in-wheel motors will be provided. Then, an ideal cornering model of vehicles will be brought and analyzed, after which a method to estimate side-slip angle was also proposed and three typical sensors were used in the theory. Besides, an idea for the recognition of road adhesion coefficient was derived based on MEV platform, which will be helpful for better control performances. Finally, the scheme of control method was given and some typical tests for observing handling properties were implemented based on Simulink and Carsim software. With the outcomes from the experiments, which vividly showed the merits of the controller, one can come to a conclusion that MEV that equips with the adaptive slid mode controller always enjoys better handling performances than the one without control. Furthermore, the controller researched is friendly to the real-time working conditions, which will hold practical values in the future.

  2. Finite element model for linear-elastic mixed mode loading using adaptive mesh strategy

    2008-01-01

    An adaptive mesh finite element model has been developed to predict the crack propagation direction as well as to calculate the stress intensity factors (SIFs), under linear-elastic assumption for mixed mode loading application. The finite element mesh is generated using the advancing front method. In order to suit the requirements of the fracture analysis, the generation of the background mesh and the construction of singular elements have been added to the developed program. The adaptive remeshing process is carried out based on the posteriori stress error norm scheme to obtain an optimal mesh. Previous works of the authors have proposed techniques for adaptive mesh generation of 2D cracked models. Facilitated by the singular elements, the displacement extrapolation technique is employed to calculate the SIF. The fracture is modeled by the splitting node approach and the trajectory follows the successive linear extensions of each crack increment. The SIFs values for two different case studies were estimated and validated by direct comparisons with other researchers work.

  3. Adaptive Control of Non-Minimum Phase Modal Systems Using Residual Mode Filters2. Parts 1 and 2

    Balas, Mark J.; Frost, Susan

    2011-01-01

    Many dynamic systems containing a large number of modes can benefit from adaptive control techniques, which are well suited to applications that have unknown parameters and poorly known operating conditions. In this paper, we focus on a direct adaptive control approach that has been extended to handle adaptive rejection of persistent disturbances. We extend this adaptive control theory to accommodate problematic modal subsystems of a plant that inhibit the adaptive controller by causing the open-loop plant to be non-minimum phase. We will modify the adaptive controller with a Residual Mode Filter (RMF) to compensate for problematic modal subsystems, thereby allowing the system to satisfy the requirements for the adaptive controller to have guaranteed convergence and bounded gains. This paper will be divided into two parts. Here in Part I we will review the basic adaptive control approach and introduce the primary ideas. In Part II, we will present the RMF methodology and complete the proofs of all our results. Also, we will apply the above theoretical results to a simple flexible structure example to illustrate the behavior with and without the residual mode filter.

  4. Adaptive-projection intrinsically transformed multivariate empirical mode decomposition in cooperative brain-computer interface applications.

    Hemakom, Apit; Goverdovsky, Valentin; Looney, David; Mandic, Danilo P

    2016-04-13

    An extension to multivariate empirical mode decomposition (MEMD), termed adaptive-projection intrinsically transformed MEMD (APIT-MEMD), is proposed to cater for power imbalances and inter-channel correlations in real-world multichannel data. It is shown that the APIT-MEMD exhibits similar or better performance than MEMD for a large number of projection vectors, whereas it outperforms MEMD for the critical case of a small number of projection vectors within the sifting algorithm. We also employ the noise-assisted APIT-MEMD within our proposed intrinsic multiscale analysis framework and illustrate the advantages of such an approach in notoriously noise-dominated cooperative brain-computer interface (BCI) based on the steady-state visual evoked potentials and the P300 responses. Finally, we show that for a joint cognitive BCI task, the proposed intrinsic multiscale analysis framework improves system performance in terms of the information transfer rate. PMID:26953174

  5. Empirical mode decomposition, an adaptive approach for interpreting shaft vibratory signals of large rotating machinery

    Yang, Wenxian; Tavner, P. J.

    2009-04-01

    The Fourier transform (FT) has been the most popular method for analyzing large rotating machine shaft vibration problems, but it assumes that these vibration signals are linear and stationary. However, in reality this is not always true. Nonlinear and non-stationary shaft vibration signals are often encountered during the start-up and shut-down processes of the machines. Additionally, mechanical faults, for example rotor-to-stator rubbing, fluid excitation, part-loosening, and shaft cracking, are nonlinear. Owing to these reasons, an accurate analysis of shaft vibration cannot always be achieved by using the FT. An alternative tool, the wavelet transform (WT), is now being used to improve the situation. But the efficiency is a problem especially when applying the WT to the accurate analysis of a large-scale, lengthy data. In view of the powerful capability of empirical mode decomposition (EMD) to process nonlinear/non-stationary signals, its algorithm efficiency and its satisfactory performance in minimizing energy leakage, the EMD is used in this paper to analyze the problem, the signals investigated are adaptively decomposed into a finite number of intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). The principal IMFs, identified using an energy-distribution threshold, dominate the signals' oscillation. So, 'purified' shaft vibration signals can be reconstructed from these principal IMFs. To remove interference present in principal IMFs, an adaptive band-pass filter is designed, whose central frequency is automatically set to the frequency dominating the IMF being investigated. To facilitate the observation of transient shaft vibration, a transient shaft orbit (TSO) is constructed by introducing timescale into the orbit drawing process. Nine mathematical criteria are also proposed to evaluate the shaft vibrations exhibited in the IMFs and TSOs. The novelty of this approach is that the EMD provides an adaptive, effective, and efficient way to obtain 'purified' shaft vibration

  6. Decentralized direct adaptive neural network control for a class of interconnected systems

    Zhang Tianping; Mei Jiandong

    2006-01-01

    The problem of direct adaptive neural network control for a class of large-scale systems with unknown function control gains and the high-order interconnections is studied in this paper. Based on the principle of sliding mode control and the approximation capability of multilayer neural networks, a design scheme of decentralized direct adaptive sliding mode controller is proposed. The plant dynamic uncertainty and modeling errors are adaptively compensated by adjusted the weights and sliding mode gains on-line for each subsystem using only local information. According to the Lyapunov method, the closed-loop adaptive control system is proven to be globally stable, with tracking errors converging to a neighborhood of zero. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

It is proved that sliding manifolds are reachable and sliding mode movement is independent of disturbance uncertainties. Numerical simulation shows that the position tracking with input delay considered is more accurate than that with input delay ignored.

    2005-01-01

    Adaptive optics (AO) systems have significantly improved astronomical imaging capabilities over the last decade, and are revolutionizing the kinds of science possible with 4-5m class ground-based telescopes. A thorough understanding of AO system performance at the telescope can enable new frontiers of science as observations push AO systems to their performance limits. We look at recent advances with wave front reconstruction (WFR) on the Advanced Electro-Optical System (AEOS) 3.6 m telescope to show how progress made in improving WFR can be measured directly in improved science images. We describe how a "waffle mode" wave front error (which is not sensed by a Fried geometry Shack-Hartmann wave front sensor) affects the AO point-spread function (PSF). We model details of AEOS AO to simulate a PSF which matches the actual AO PSF in the I-band, and show that while the older observed AEOS PSF contained several times more waffle error than expected, improved WFR techniques noticeably improve AEOS AO performance. ...

  11. A wide load range, multi-mode synchronous buck DC—DC converter with a dynamic mode controller and adaptive slope compensation

    A synchronous buck DC—DC converter with an adaptive multi-mode controller is proposed. In order to achieve high efficiency over its entire load range, pulse-width modulation (PWM), pulse-skip modulation (PSM) and pulse-frequency modulation (PFM) modes were integrated in the proposed DC—DC converter. With a highly accurate current sensor and a dynamic mode controller on chip, the converter can dynamically change among PWM, PSM and PFM control according to the load requirements. In addition, to avoid power device damage caused by inrush current at the start up state, a soft-start circuit is presented to suppress the inrush current. Furthermore, an adaptive slope compensation (SC) technique is proposed to stabilize the current programmed PWM controller for duty cycle passes over 50%, and improve the degraded load capability due to traditional slope compensation. The buck converter chip was simulated and manufactured under a 0.35 μm standard CMOS process. Experimental results show that the chip can achieve 79% to 91% efficiency over the load range of 0.1 to 1000 mA (semiconductor integrated circuits)

  16. Adaptive synchronization control of coupled chaotic neurons in an external electrical stimulation

    In this paper we present a combined algorithm for the synchronization control of two gap junction coupled chaotic FitzHugh—Nagumo (FHN) neurons in an external electrical stimulation. The controller consists of a combination of dynamical sliding mode control and adaptive backstepping control. The combined algorithm yields an adaptive dynamical sliding mode control law which has the advantage over static sliding mode-based controllers of being chattering-free, i.e., a sufficiently smooth control input signal is generated. It is shown that the proposed control scheme can not only compensate for the system uncertainty, but also guarantee the stability of the synchronized error system. In addition, numerical simulations are also performed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed adaptive controller. (interdisciplinary physics and related areas of science and technology)

  18. Rock Slide Risk Assessment: A Semi-Quantitative Approach

    Duzgun, H. S. B.

    2009-04-01

    Rock slides can be better managed by systematic risk assessments. Any risk assessment methodology for rock slides involves identification of rock slide risk components, which are hazard, elements at risk and vulnerability. For a quantitative/semi-quantitative risk assessment for rock slides, a mathematical value the risk has to be computed and evaluated. The quantitative evaluation of risk for rock slides enables comparison of the computed risk with the risk of other natural and/or human-made hazards and providing better decision support and easier communication for the decision makers. A quantitative/semi-quantitative risk assessment procedure involves: Danger Identification, Hazard Assessment, Elements at Risk Identification, Vulnerability Assessment, Risk computation, Risk Evaluation. On the other hand, the steps of this procedure require adaptation of existing or development of new implementation methods depending on the type of landslide, data availability, investigation scale and nature of consequences. In study, a generic semi-quantitative risk assessment (SQRA) procedure for rock slides is proposed. The procedure has five consecutive stages: Data collection and analyses, hazard assessment, analyses of elements at risk and vulnerability and risk assessment. The implementation of the procedure for a single rock slide case is illustrated for a rock slope in Norway. Rock slides from mountain Ramnefjell to lake Loen are considered to be one of the major geohazards in Norway. Lake Loen is located in the inner part of Nordfjord in Western Norway. Ramnefjell Mountain is heavily jointed leading to formation of vertical rock slices with height between 400-450 m and width between 7-10 m. These slices threaten the settlements around Loen Valley and tourists visiting the fjord during summer season, as the released slides have potential of creating tsunami. In the past, several rock slides had been recorded from the Mountain Ramnefjell between 1905 and 1950. Among them

    2012-01-01

    Due to the chattering problem existing in traditional sliding mode observers, a novel sensorless control strategy for a permanent magnet synchronous motor ( PMSM) based on traditional sliding mode observer (SMO) was proposed to estimate the rotor position and speed. The sign function was replaced by Sigmoid function to eliminate the chattering. The low pass filter ( LPF) and the theta compensation were also removed. It simplifies the system structure and makes the wave form smooth and accurate. So the precision of the rotor speed and position estimation can be improved. A simulation model of the control system was established through the Matlab/Simulink platform. The simulation results demonstrate that this novel method can reduce the chattering of the system, thus improving the system performance.%传统基于反电动势的滑模观测器采用Sign函数来作为开关函数,因为Sign函数的开关特性,使系统存在抖振大的问题.在传统滑模观测器的基础上,通过采用Sigmoid函数代替Sign函数,改善了开关特性,大大地减少了抖振,并去掉了滤波器和转角补偿器,简化了系统,提高了反电动势的估算精度,从而得到更精确的转速和转角位置信息.在Matlab/Simulink平台基础上建立控制系统仿真模型,对该方案做了验证.仿真结果表明:该方法提高了滑模观测器的精度,降低了系统的抖振,提高了系统的性能.

Aiming to improve the ride comfort ability, a sliding mode controller with sky-hook reference model was designed based on the nonlinear full vehicle model. The damping force on each suspension unit was controlled individually by the controller so that the responses of the controlled vehicle could follow those of the reference model. The performance of the designed controller was validated in the Matlab simulation environment. The simulated vehicle was subjected to a class-D road profile at 54 km/h. Simulation results show that, compared with passive suspension, the sliding model controller can effectively decrease the vertical, pitch and roll vibration of the sprung mass. The model reference sliding mode control has a strong robustness on road disturbance and parameter variety, and it is eligible for the nonlinear hydropneumatic suspension control.

  1. PT-symmetric microring lasers: Self-adapting broadband mode-selective resonators

    Hodaei, Hossein; Heinrich, Matthias; Christodoulides, Demetrios N; Khajavikhan, Mercedeh

    2014-01-01

    We demonstrate experimentally that stable single longitudinal mode operation can be readily achieved in PT-symmetric arrangements of coupled microring resonators. Whereas any active resonator is in principle capable of displaying single-wavelength operation, selective breaking of PT-symmetry can be utilized to systematically enhance the maximum achievable gain of this mode, even if a large number of competing longitudinal or transverse resonator modes fall within the amplification bandwidth of the inhomogeneously broadened active medium. This concept is robust with respect to fabrication tolerances, and its mode selectivity is established without the need for additional components or specifically designed filters. Our results may pave the way for a new generation of versatile cavities lasing at a desired longitudinal resonance. Along these lines, traditionally highly multi-moded microring resonator configurations can be fashioned to suppress all but one longitudinal mode.

  4. An adaptive two-stage energy-efficiency mechanism for the doze mode in EPON

    Nikoukar, AliAkbar; Hwang, I.-Shyan; Su, Yu-Min; Liem, Andrew Tanny

    2016-07-01

    Sleep and doze power-saving modes are the common ways to reduce power consumption of optical network units (ONUs) in Ethernet passive optical network (EPON). The doze mode turns off the ONU transmitter when there is no traffic in the upstream direction while the sleep mode turns off the ONU transmitter and receiver. As the result, the sleep mode is more efficient compared to the doze mode, but it introduces additional complexity of scheduling and signaling, losses the clock synchronization and requires long clock recovery time; furthermore, it requires the cooperation of the optical line terminal (OLT) in the downstream direction to queue frames. To improve the energy-saving in the doze mode, a new two-stage mechanism is introduced that the doze sleep duration is extended for longer time with acceptable quality-of-services (QoS) metrics when ONU is idle in the current cycle. By this way the ONU enters the doze mode even in the high load traffic; moreover, the green dynamic bandwidth allocation (GBA) is proposed to calculate the doze sleep duration based on the ONU queue state and incoming traffic ratio. Simulation results show that the proposed mechanism significantly improves the energy-saving 74% and 54% when traffic load is from the light load to the high load in different traffic situations, and also promises the QoS performance.

    2013-01-01

    In order to analyze fast-scale nonlinear phenomenon in Boost PFC in peak-current control mode, a discrete iterative map for Boost PFC converter was derived, and the expression of the state transition matrix was obtained according to this map. In addition, the bifurcation boundary of the system was also derived. Then the simulation was presented to show the intermittent bifurcations and chaos phenomenon of the inductor current in one input voltage cycle. To avoid bifurcations, a double integral sliding mode control was adopted to make the system operate stably in single-period state. Compared with slope compensation, a conclusion can be drawn that double integral sliding mode control can achieve good robustness without imposing external disturbance, and avoid bifurcations caused by variation of the input voltage effectively, which can also attain high power factor (PF) with simple algorithm. The new method is easy to realize and can provide reference for bifurcation control in PFC converters.%为了分析峰值电流型Boost PFC(power factor correction)在快时标下的非线性现象,建立Boost PFC变换器的离散迭代映射,并基于此映射推导其状态转移矩阵的表达式,得到系统分岔的条件,通过仿真观察系统电感电流在输入电压周期内出现的间歇性分岔和混沌现象.为了避免分岔,使系统稳定工作在单周期态,采用双积分滑模的控制方法.仿真结果表明:与常规的斜坡补偿法相比,双积分滑模法不需要施加外部扰动,且具有良好的鲁棒性,在有效地避免因输入电压变化所产生的分岔现象的同时,让Boost PFC具有较高的功率因数(PF),且算法简单,易于实现,对PFC变换器的分岔控制提供了借鉴.

  7. Complexity reduction in the H.264/AVC using highly adaptive fast mode decision based on macroblock motion activity

    Abdellah, Skoudarli; Mokhtar, Nibouche; Amina, Serir

    2015-11-01

    The H.264/AVC video coding standard is used in a wide range of applications from video conferencing to high-definition television according to its high compression efficiency. This efficiency is mainly acquired from the newly allowed prediction schemes including variable block modes. However, these schemes require a high complexity to select the optimal mode. Consequently, complexity reduction in the H.264/AVC encoder has recently become a very challenging task in the video compression domain, especially when implementing the encoder in real-time applications. Fast mode decision algorithms play an important role in reducing the overall complexity of the encoder. In this paper, we propose an adaptive fast intermode algorithm based on motion activity, temporal stationarity, and spatial homogeneity. This algorithm predicts the motion activity of the current macroblock from its neighboring blocks and identifies temporal stationary regions and spatially homogeneous regions using adaptive threshold values based on content video features. Extensive experimental work has been done in high profile, and results show that the proposed source-coding algorithm effectively reduces the computational complexity by 53.18% on average compared with the reference software encoder, while maintaining the high-coding efficiency of H.264/AVC by incurring only 0.097 dB in total peak signal-to-noise ratio and 0.228% increment on the total bit rate.

  8. An adaptively fast ensemble empirical mode decomposition method and its applications to rolling element bearing fault diagnosis

    Xue, Xiaoming; Zhou, Jianzhong; Xu, Yanhe; Zhu, Wenlong; Li, Chaoshun

    2015-10-01

    Ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) represents a significant improvement over the original empirical mode decomposition (EMD) method for eliminating the mode mixing problem. However, the added white noises generate some tough problems including the high computational cost, the determination of the two critical parameters (the amplitude of the added white noise and the number of ensemble trials), and the contamination of the residue noise in the signal reconstruction. To solve these problems, an adaptively fast EEMD (AFEEMD) method combined with complementary EEMD (CEEMD) is proposed in this paper. In the proposed method, the two critical parameters are respectively fixed as 0.01 times standard deviation of the original signal and two ensemble trials. Instead, the upper frequency limit of the added white noise is the key parameter which needs to be prescribed beforehand. Unlike the original EEMD method, only two high-frequency white noises are added to the signal to be investigated with anti-phase in AFEEMD. Furthermore, an index termed relative root-mean-square error is employed for the adaptive selection of the proper upper frequency limit of the added white noises. Simulation test and vibration signals based fault diagnosis of rolling element bearing under different fault types are utilized to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method. The analysis results indicate that the AFEEMD method represents a sound improvement over the original EEMD method, and has strong practicability.

  9. Cryptic genetic variation can make "irreducible complexity" a common mode of adaptation in sexual populations.

    Trotter, Meredith V; Weissman, Daniel B; Peterson, Grant I; Peck, Kayla M; Masel, Joanna

    2014-12-01

    The existence of complex (multiple-step) genetic adaptations that are "irreducible" (i.e., all partial combinations are less fit than the original genotype) is one of the longest standing problems in evolutionary biology. In standard genetics parlance, these adaptations require the crossing of a wide adaptive valley of deleterious intermediate stages. Here, we demonstrate, using a simple model, that evolution can cross wide valleys to produce "irreducibly complex" adaptations by making use of previously cryptic mutations. When revealed by an evolutionary capacitor, previously cryptic mutants have higher initial frequencies than do new mutations, bringing them closer to a valley-crossing saddle in allele frequency space. Moreover, simple combinatorics implies an enormous number of candidate combinations exist within available cryptic genetic variation. We model the dynamics of crossing of a wide adaptive valley after a capacitance event using both numerical simulations and analytical approximations. Although individual valley crossing events become less likely as valleys widen, by taking the combinatorics of genotype space into account, we see that revealing cryptic variation can cause the frequent evolution of complex adaptations.

  12. Integrated Flight/Structural Mode Control for Very Flexible Aircraft Using L1 Adaptive Output Feedback Controller

    Che, Jiaxing; Cao, Chengyu; Gregory, Irene M.

    2012-01-01

    This paper explores application of adaptive control architecture to a light, high-aspect ratio, flexible aircraft configuration that exhibits strong rigid body/flexible mode coupling. Specifically, an L(sub 1) adaptive output feedback controller is developed for a semi-span wind tunnel model capable of motion. The wind tunnel mount allows the semi-span model to translate vertically and pitch at the wing root, resulting in better simulation of an aircraft s rigid body motion. The control objective is to design a pitch control with altitude hold while suppressing body freedom flutter. The controller is an output feedback nominal controller (LQG) augmented by an L(sub 1) adaptive loop. A modification to the L(sub 1) output feedback is proposed to make it more suitable for flexible structures. The new control law relaxes the required bounds on the unmatched uncertainty and allows dependence on the state as well as time, i.e. a more general unmatched nonlinearity. The paper presents controller development and simulated performance responses. Simulation is conducted by using full state flexible wing models derived from test data at 10 different dynamic pressure conditions. An L(sub 1) adaptive output feedback controller is designed for a single test point and is then applied to all the test cases. The simulation results show that the L(sub 1) augmented controller can stabilize and meet the performance requirements for all 10 test conditions ranging from 30 psf to 130 psf dynamic pressure.

    Aim. To solve the problems that sensorless vector control is difficult to implement and that the parameters of normal PI (proportional integral) control cannot be adjusted on-line in the conventional motor control, we propose a novel control method. Sections 2 and 3 of the full paper explain in some detail our novel control method. Its core consists of: (1) we design a variable structure sliding-mode speed controller and a variable structure sliding-mode current controller to replace the traditional speed PI controller and two current PI controllers; (2) we design the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) observer to estimate direct-axis current, quadrature-axis current, load torque, rotor position and speed simultaneously. Section 4 presents simulation results and their analysis. The simulation results, given in Figs. 3 through 5, and their analysis show preliminarily that: (1) the variable structure sliding-mode controllers designed by us can effectively regulate the rotational speed and the current of the IPMSM; (2) the UKF observer we designed can accurately estimate motor states and is robust against perturbation, exterior disturbance and measurement error.%针对电机控制中采用的PI调节器对电机参数变化及外加干扰时鲁棒差和无位置传感器控制实现困难等问题,在研究常规永磁同步电机矢量控制策略的基础上,将滑模变结构控制(VSSMC)和无迹卡尔曼滤波(UKF)引入该策略中,用VSSMC分别替代策略中速度PI控制器和2个PI电流控制器,同时利用UKF对电机定子直轴电流、交轴电流、负载转矩、转子位置和转速进行实时估计,提出了一种新颖的基于VSSMC和UKF的永磁同步电机无传感器矢量控制方案.仿真结果验证了新方案的正确性,所设计的VSSMC能有效调节转速和电流,其调节效果优于常规PI控制器,所设计的UKF观测器能准确估计系统状态,而且两者对系统参数摄动、外干扰、测量误差以及测量噪声都

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Modular neck adapters for hip arthroplasty stems allow the surgeon to modify CCD angle, offset and femoral anteversion intraoperatively. Fretting or crevice corrosion may lead to failure of such a modular device due to high loads or surface contamination inside the modular coupling. Unfortunately we have experienced such a failure of implants and now report our clinical experience with the failures in order to advance orthopaedic material research and joint replacement surgery. The failed neck adapters were implanted between August 2004 and November 2006 a total of about 5000 devices. After this period, the titanium neck adapters were replaced by adapters out of cobalt-chromium. Until the end of 2008 in total 1.4% (n = 68 of the implanted titanium alloy neck adapters failed with an average time of 2.0 years (0.7 to 4.0 years postoperatively. All, but one, patients were male, their average age being 57.4 years (36 to 75 years and the average weight 102.3 kg (75 to 130 kg. The failures of neck adapters were divided into 66% with small CCD of 130° and 60% with head lengths of L or larger. Assuming an average time to failure of 2.8 years, the cumulative failure rate was calculated with 2.4%. Methods A series of adapter failures of titanium alloy modular neck adapters in combination with a titanium alloy modular short hip stem was investigated. For patients having received this particular implant combination risk factors were identified which were associated with the occurence of implant failure. A Kaplan-Meier survival-failure-analysis was conducted. The retrieved implants were analysed using microscopic and chemical methods. Modes of failure were simulated in biomechanical tests. Comparative tests included modular neck adapters made of titanium alloy and cobalt chrome alloy material. Results Retrieval examinations and biomechanical simulation revealed that primary micromotions initiated fretting within the modular tapered neck

    A new approach, called Adaptive Q-control, for tapping-mode Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is introduced and implemented on a home-made AFM set-up utilizing a Laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) and a piezo-actuated bimorph probe. In the standard Q-control, the effective Q-factor of the scanning probe is adjusted prior to the scanning depending on the application. However, there is a trade-off in setting the effective Q-factor of an AFM probe. The Q-factor is either increased to reduce the tapping forces or decreased to increase the maximum achievable scan speed. Realizing these two benefits simultaneously using the standard Q-control is not possible. In adaptive Q-control, the Q-factor of the probe is set to an initial value as in standard Q-control, but then modified on the fly during scanning when necessary to achieve this goal. In this paper, we present the basic theory behind the adaptive Q-control, the electronics enabling the on-line modification of the probe's effective Q-factor, and the results of the expe...
