    This paper deals with a recent design of event-driven observer-based smart sensors for output feedback control of linear systems. We re-design the triggering mechanism proposed in a previously reported system with the implementation of self-sampling data smart sensors; as a result, we improve its performance. Our approach is theoretically supported by using Lyapunov theory and numerically evidenced by controlling the inverted pendulum on the cart mechanism.Postprint (published version

    Iterative Learning Control for homing guidance design of missiles

    Get PDF
    This paper presents an Iterative Learning Control design applied to homing guidance of missiles against maneuvering targets. According to numerical experiments, although an increase of the control energies is appreciated with respect to a previous published base controller for comparison, this strategy, which is simple to realize, is able to reduce the time to reach the head-on condition to target destruction. This fact is important to minimize the missile lateral force-level to fulfill engaging in hypersonic target persecutions.Peer ReviewedPostprint (published version

    Settling-time improvement in global convergence lagrangian networks

    Get PDF
    In this brief, a modification of Lagrangian networks given in (Xia Y., 2003) is presented. This modification improves the settling time of the convergence of Lagrangian networks to a stationary point; which is the optimal solution to the nonlinear convex programming problem with linear equality constraints. This is important because, in many real-time applications where Lagrangian networks are used to find an optimal solution, such as in signal and image processing, this settling time is interpreted as the processing time. Simulation results applied to a quadratic optimization problem show that settling time is improved from about to 2000 to 20 seconds. Lyapunov theory was used to obtain our main result.Postprint (published version

    A proportional plus a hysteretic term control design: a throttle experimental emulation to wind turbines pitch control

    Get PDF
    Pitch control is a relevant issue in wind turbines to properly operate the angle of the blades. Therefore, this control system pitches the blades usually a few degrees every time the wind changes in order to keep the rotor blades at the required angle thus controlling the rotational speed of the turbine. All the same time, the control of the pitch angle is not easy due to the system behavior being highly nonlinear. Consequently, the main objective of this paper is to depict an easy to implement control design based on a proportional controller and a hysteretic term to an emulator pitch control system in wind turbines. This emulator is just an automotive throttle device. This mechanical body dynamically captures some hard non-linearities presented in pitch wind turbine mechanisms, such as backlash, asymmetrical non-lineal effects, friction, and load variations. Even under strong non-linear effects that are difficult to model, a proportional controller and a hysteretic term may satisfy the main control design objective. Hence, a recent control design is developed and applied to a throttle system. We invoke the Lyapunov theory to confirm stability of the resultant closed-loop system. In addition, the proposed control approach is completely implemented by using operational amplifiers. Hence, no digital units are required at all. Moreover, the cost of the developed experimental platform and its outcomes are inexpensive. According to the experimental results, the controller performance seems acceptable, and validating of the control contribution too. For instance, a settling-time of about 0.03 s to a unit step-response is obtained.Peer ReviewedPostprint (published version

    A quick fault detection system applied to pitch actuators of wind turbines

    Get PDF
    The design of fast respond fault detection systems to wind turbines results an important subject and represents a notable challenger too. This paper presents a recent approach on a quick response fault detection system to pitch actuators in controlled wind turbines. The obtained time detection is about 10 seconds. Our scheme was possible by manipulating an adaptive parametric estimation block by varying the time scales among the actuator and the identification process dynamics. Additionally, numerical experiments are realized to support the main contribution.Postprint (published version

    Velocity-surface stability of a moving charged particle in a controlled electromagnetic field

    Get PDF
    Given the equation motion of a moving charged particle in a controlled electromagnetic field, this paper proves that its velocity-trajectory motion converges to an specified velocity-surface in the 3-D Euclidean dimensional space. This is basically realized by just manipulating the electric field of an electromagnetic field. Lyapunov theory is invoked to test our statement; besides, a numerical example is provided to support our theoretical contribution. Finally, we consider that the exposition of this paper could be of interest to undergraduate students.Peer ReviewedPostprint (author's final draft

    Impulsive control realization applied to non-dissipative first order plants: an academic electronic implementation

    Get PDF
    Impulsive control design is a control strategy mainly based on the impulsive differential model of the plant to be stabilized. Hence, this system should have at least one state variable able to be driven by impulsive commands. On the other hand, analog electronic realization of an impulsive control algorithm may be an important competition for engineering students. Therefore, the main objective of this paper is to pose an impulsive control method to non-dissipative first order systems along with an electronic circuit design to validate a contribution on impulsive control aim. According to our experimental results, our electronic architecture to reproduce an impulsive control law results effective to accomplished asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system in the Lyapunov’s sense.Peer ReviewedPostprint (published version
