The most of the studies on disturbance rejection are covered with robust control methods, where this paper suggests a narrowed but a more simplified linear model based technique to assess the robustness of the controllers. In this paper presented, the problems originated from the disturbances are aimed to be obtained as far in advance as possible. The method used in this work reduces the iterative fine tuning time course between the non-linear simulation and the linear model; hence it enhances the authority over the design process and the designer's comprehension of the true linear model.

Sliding mode control for non-linear systems with adaptive sliding surfaces
Durmaz, Burak; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; SALAMCİ, METİN UYMAZ (2012-02-01)
This study covers the sliding mode control design with adaptive sliding surfaces for a class of affine non-linear systems, which can be described by (x) over dot = A(x)x + B(x)u + f(x) + d(x, t). The main streamline of the study is the sliding surface design for such systems. The sliding surfaces are designed to be moving with varying slopes and offsets. The varying sliding surface parameters are determined by solving the state-dependent Riccati equations online during the control process. Thus, the sliding...
Hierarchical and decentralized multitasking control of discrete event systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Cury, José E. R. (2007-12-01)
In this paper, a hierarchical and decentralized approach for composite discrete-event systems (DES) that have to fulfill multiple tasks is elaborated. Colored marking generators that can distinguish classes of tasks are used as the system model, and a colored abstraction procedure as well as sufficient conditions for nonblocking and hierarchically consistent control are developed. It is shown that the computational complexity for supervisor computation is reduced. A flexible manufacturing system example dem...
Experimental results on adaptive output feedback control using a laboratory model helicopter
Kutay, Ali Türker; Idan, M; Hovakimyan, N (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005-03-01)
Experimental results are presented that illustrate a recently developed method for adaptive output feedback control. The method permits adaptation to both parametric uncertainty and unmodeled dynamics, and incorporates a novel approach that permits adaptation under known actuator characteristics including actuator dynamics and saturation. Only knowledge of the relative degree of the controlled system within the bandwidth of the control design is required. The controller design was tested by controlling the ...
Active Vibration Suppression of a Smart Beam by Using an LQG Control Algorithm
Onat, Cem; Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz (2011-06-22)
The aim of this study was to design and experimentally apply a Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) controller for the active vibration suppression of a smart beam. The smart beam was a cantilever aluminum beam with eight symmetrically located surface-bonded PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches which were utilized both as sensor or actuator depending on their location. A group of PZT patches closed to the root of the beam was used as actuators in the bimorph configuration and a single patch was nominated as a s...
Motion control of constrained systems considering their actuation-related singular configurations
Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2001-01-01)
In this paper, the constrained motion control of a normally unconstrained mechanical system is investigated. As far as its motion control is concerned, such a system will have a redundancy in its actuators due to the reduction caused in its number of degrees of freedom by the presence of the constraints. Four methods are described in order to determine the actuator and constraint forces. The first three of these methods necessitate using all the actuators and the fourth method is applicable in a case where ...
