An approach for augmenting existing distributed controller designs for large-scale interconnected systems with neural network based adaptive elements is proposed. It is assumed that the controllers are interconnected in the same way as the plant and based on the available measurements, a single hidden layer neural network is introduced for each subsystem to partially cancel the effects of the sub-system interconnections and modeling errors on tracking performance. Boundedness of error signals is shown through Lyapunov's direct method. Effectiveness of the approach is demonstrated on a wind tunnel experiment representing aerial vehicles flying in a highly aerodynamically coupled formation.

Linear static analysis of large structural models on pc clusters
Özmen, Semih; Toker, Kurç; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
This research focuses on implementing and improving a parallel solution framework for the linear static analysis of large structural models on PC clusters. The framework consists of two separate programs where the first one is responsible from preparing data for the parallel solution that involves partitioning, workload balancing, and equation numbering. The second program is a fully parallel nite element program that utilizes substructure based solution approach with direct solvers. The first step of data...
Scalable computational steering for visualization/control of large-scale fluid dynamics simulations
Modi, Anirudh; Sezer Uzol, Nilay; Long, Lyle N.; Plassmann, Paul E. (2005-01-01)
The development, integration, and testing of a general-purpose "computational steering" software library with a three-dimensional Navier-Stokes flow solver is described. For this purpose, the portable object-oriented scientific steering environment (called POSSE) library was used. This library can be coupled to any C/C++ simulation code. The paper illustrates how to integrate computational steering into a code, how to monitor the solution while it is being computed, and how to adjust the parameters of the a...
Virtual reality in requirement analysis for CIM system development suitable for SMEs
Erenay, O; Hashemipour, M; Kayaligil, S (2002-10-15)
This paper presents a methodology, based on Virtual Reality (VR), for representing a manufacturing system in order to help with the requirement analysis (RA) in CIM system development, suitable for SMEs. The methodology can reduce the costs and the time involved at this stage by producing precise and accurate plans, specification requirements, and a design for CIM information systems. These are essentials for small and medium scale manufacturing enterprises. Virtual Reality is computer-based and has better ...

Adaptive decentralized control of interconnected systems
Sezer, ME; Altunel, H (2004-08-01)
This paper presents a decentralized adaptive stabilization scheme for a class of interconnected systems using high-gain adaptive controllers. The nominal subsystems are assumed to satisfy some mild conditions required by standard adaptive control schemes, and the interconnections certain structural conditions. The decentralized controllers are high-gain dynamic systems operating on local outputs to generate local control inputs. Both continuous-time and sampled-data controllers are considered. The idea behi...
