RP4: Precision Control

The future mechatronic system is a multivariable, decentralized controlled mechanically flexible system, in which all control functions adapt per operating point to optimize performance, are failsafe, and provide a means to remotely service the equipment.

Technological items:

  • Point of Interest Control (Observer-based systems; Learning control and systems; Disturbance-based design);
  • Thermal control and modeling (Design and optimization; Error correction; Identification & control; FF modeling & model reduction; Actuators & sensors);
  • Over-actuated and distributed systems (Modal control; Local / collocated disturbance rejection; Data-driven design; Advanced feed-forward & input shaping; Set-point generation).
