In this thesis, modeling, simulation, and control of a combined system that consists of a quadrotor and a 2-DOF robotic serial manipulator are presented. Firstly, the kinematic and dynamic model of the combined system are obtained. Then, the equation of motion of the combined system is derived by using Lagrange-D’Alembert formulation. Based on these equations, control algorithms are developed to control the combined system. Firstly, the cascaded PID controllers are designed by using the linearized decoupled equations of motion. Then, this controller is tested with the ideal dc and servo motor models with highly nonlinear combined system models. Secondly, the feedback linearizing controller is designed by using the nonlinear equations of motion of the system that is in the form of a standard robot dynamics equation. Then, to avoid instability of the system that can be caused by the unmodeled dynamics, parameter variations, and external disturbances, and to estimate these uncertainties, an extended state observer is added to the feedback linearizing controller. Later, the feedback linearizing controller and the extended state observer based the feedback linearizing controller is tested with the nonideal dc and servo motor models with the nonlinear combined system model. All proposed algorithms and the nonlinear combined system model are coded in MATLAB/Simulink environment. Finally, these control algorithms are validated with a simulation case study, and their performances are compared.

This paper presents the control of an aerial manipulation system with a quadrotor and a 2-DOF robotic arm by using the computed torque control method. The kinematic and dynamic model of the system is obtained by modeling the quadrotor and the robotic arm as a unified system. Then, the equation of motion of the unified system is got in the form of a standard robot dynamics equation. For the trajectory control of the system, computed torque control is used. Gains of the controller are optimized by using nonli...

Real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation of electrical machine systems using FPGAs
Üşenme, Serdar; Dilan, R.A.; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2009-11-18)
This study focuses on the development an integrated software and hardware platform that is capable of performing real-time simulation of dynamic systems, including electrical machinery, for the purpose of hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS). The system to be controlled is first defined using a block diagram editor. The defined model is then compiled and downloaded onto an FPGA (¿Field Programmable Gate Array¿) based hardware platform, which is to interface with the controller under test and carry out the...
Modeling and simulation of a maneuvering ship
Pakkan, Sinan; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis documents the studies conducted in deriving a mathematical model representing the dynamics of a maneuvering ship to be implemented as part of an interactive real-time simulation system, as well as the details and results of the implementation process itself. Different effects on the dynamics of ship motions are discussed separately, meaning that the effects are considered to be applied to the system one at a time and they are included in the model simply by the principle of superposition. The mo...

Korkmaz, Ozan; İder, Kemal S.; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, dynamic modeling and nonlinear control of autonomous underwater vehicle manipulator systems are presented. Mainly, two types of systems consisting of a 6-DOF AUV equipped with a 6-DOF manipulator subsystem (UVMS) and with an 8-DOF redundant manipulator subsystem (UVRMS) are modeled considering hydrostatic forces and hydrodynamic effects such as added mass, lift, drag and side forces. The shadowing effects of the bodies on each other are introduced when computing the hydrodynamic forces. The ...
