  1. This paper is focused on the output tracking control problem of a wave equation with both matched and unmatched boundary uncertainties. An adaptive boundary feedback control scheme is proposed by utilizing radial basis function neural networks (RBF NNs) to deal with the effect of system uncertainties. Specifically, two RBF NN models are first developed to approximate the matched and unmatched system uncertain dynamics respectively. Based on this, an adaptive NN control scheme is derived, which consists of: (i) an adaptive boundary feedback controller embedded by the NN model approximating the matched uncertainty, for rendering stable and accurate tracking control; and (ii) a reference model embedded by the NN model approximating the unmatched uncertainty, for generating a prescribed reference trajectory. Rigorous analysis is performed using the Lyapunov theory and the C0-semigroup theory to prove that our proposed control scheme can guarantee closed-loop stability and wellposedness. Simulation study has been conducted to demonstrate effectiveness of the proposed approach.
  2. Summary

    A new robust adaptive control scheme is developed for nonlinearly parametrized multivariable systems in the presence of parameter uncertainties and unmatched disturbances. The developed control scheme employs a new integrated framework of a functional bounding technique for handling nonlinearly parametrized system dynamics, an adaptive parameter estimation algorithm for dealing with parameter uncertainties, a nonlinear feedback controller structure for stabilization of interconnected system states, and a robust adaptive control design for accommodating unmatched disturbances. It is proved that such a new robust adaptive control scheme is capable of ensuring the global boundedness and mean convergence of all closed‐loop system signals. A complete simulation study on an air vehicle system with nonlinear parametrization in the presence of an unmatched wind disturbance is conducted, and its results verify the effectiveness of the proposed robust adaptive control scheme.

  3. Abstract This paper is concerned with solving, from the learning-based decomposition control viewpoint, the problem of output tracking with nonperiodic tracking–transition switching. Such a nontraditional tracking problem occurs in applications where sessions for tracking a given desired trajectory are alternated with those for transiting the output with given boundary conditions. It is challenging to achieve precision tracking while maintaining smooth tracking–transition switching, as postswitching oscillations can be induced due to the mismatch of the boundary states at the switching instants, and the tracking performance can be limited by the nonminimum-phase (NMP) zeros of the system and effected by factors such as input constraints and external disturbances. Although recently an approach by combining the system-inversion with optimization techniques has been proposed to tackle these challenges, modeling of the system dynamics and complicated online computation are needed, and the controller obtained can be sensitive to model uncertainties. In this work, a learning-based decomposition control technique is developed to overcome these limitations. A dictionary of input–output bases is constructed offline a priori via data-driven iterative learning first. The input–output bases are used online to decompose the desired output in the tracking sessions and design an optimal desired transition trajectory with minimal transition timemore »under input-amplitude constraint. Finally, the control input is synthesized based on the superpositioning principle and further optimized online to account for system variations and external disturbance. The proposed approach is illustrated through a nanopositioning control experiment on a piezoelectric actuator.« less
  4. High frequency modular power converters are increasingly becoming popular due to their small size and weight. Targeting the input-series and output-parallel (ISOP) dual active bridge (DAB) DC-DC converters, this paper proposes a control scheme based on optimal triple phase-shift (TPS) control for both power sharing control and RMS current minimization. This achieves balanced power transmission, even under mismatched leakage inductance of a DAB module of the ISOP. In order to obtain the optimal zones of operation for the converter, the RMS current was minimized using the Lagrange multiplier method to obtain the optimal duty cycles. The power balancing was added to compensate unbalanced power sharing for variations in model parameters or module shutdown. Analyses and simulation results through MATLAB/Simulink are presented to validate the proposed controller.
