Data driven model discovery and control of longitudinal missile dynamics

Matpan, Hasan
Dynamical systems in nature are generally nonlinear and usually contains many hidden dynamics. Therefore, the need for data-driven model discovery and control methods continues. The most popular of these methods is neural networks-based methods nowadays. However, excessive data requirements, long training times and most importantly lack of interpretability of results are the main problems in neural networks-based system identification methods. Among the many other methods used for model discovery, SINDY (Sparce Identification of Non-linear Dynamical Systems) has recently attracted great attention with its simple and effective nature. SINDY, which has many extensions, also has various open problems. The proposed extension in this study is called SINDY-SAIC and combines the methods from Stepwise Sparse Regression (SSR) and Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) model selection algorithm. The need for tuning threshold parameter in SINDY is relaxed using SSR and the robustness to noisy measurements is increased with a newly used state derivative calculation method in sparse regression. In addition, presence of model selection with AIC enables sparse solution by penalizing the number of terms and prevents the algorithm to converge collinear basis. Studied dynamical systems are controlled by Model Predictive Control using discovered models. MPC is a control method that uses prediction models mostly discovered from data and try to minimize a given cost function subjected to the constraints. Both linear and nonlinear prediction models are generated using SINDY-SAIC and used in MPC as prediction models. The traditional state feedback (SF) controller is also presented for comparison. The proposed SINDY-SAIC algorithm and the controllers (MPC and SF) are tested for linear and highly non-linear longitudinal missile dynamics under moderate and high level of noise conditions.


Fault-tolerant control of discrete-event systems with lower-bound specifications
Moor, Thomas; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2015-06-01)
Fault-tolerant control addresses the control of dynamical systems such that they remain functional after the occurrence of a fault. To allow the controller to compensate for a fault, the system must exhibit certain redundancies. Alternatively, one may relax performance requirements for the closedloop behaviour after the occurrence of a fault. To achieve fault tolerance for a hierarchical control architecture, a combination of both options appears to be advisable: on each individual level of the hierarchy, t...

The dynamic response of multiple-degree-of-freedom nonlinear structures is usually determined by numerical integration of the equations of motion, an approach which is computationally very expensive for steady-state response analysis of large structures. In this paper, an alternative semianalytical quasilinear method based on the describing function formulation is proposed for the harmonic response analysis of structures with symmetrical nonlinearities. The equations of motion are converted to a set of nonl...
Semi-Bayesian Inference of Time Series Chain Graphical Models in Biological Networks
Farnoudkia, Hajar; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (null; 2018-09-20)
The construction of biological networks via time-course datasets can be performed both deterministic models such as ordinary differential equations and stochastic models such as diffusion approximation. Between these two branches, the former has wider application since more data can be available. In this study, we particularly deal with the probabilistic approaches for the steady-state or deterministic description of the biological systems when the systems are observed though time. Hence, we consider time s...
Excitation spectrum of Hubbard model with infinite electron repulsion on strip-type triangular lattices
Cheranovskii, VO; Ezerskaya, EV; Krikunov, MV (2001-02-05)
The estimations of the stability region of the lattice ferromagnetic ground state in the space of model parameters are found. For the triangular lattice strip formed by L segments with the total number of electrons N = L + 1 we derived the effective Hamiltonians describing the low-energy states of the strips and obtained the analytical estimations for above stability region. The possibility of the magnetic transition with the jump of the ground-state spin between minimal and maximal values has also been sho...

In this paper inverse dynamics of redundant multibody systems using a minimum number of control forces is formulated. It is shown that the control forces and the task accelerations may become noncausal at certain configurations, yielding the dynamical equation set of the system to be singular. For a given set of tasks, each different set of actuators leads to a different system motion and also to different singular configurations. To avoid the singularities in the numerical solution, the dynamical equations...
