Summary

This course covers some theoretical and practical aspects of robust and adaptive control. Robust controller design with H-infinity performance, digital controller design with pole placement technique, direct, indirect and switching adaptive control are studied and implemented in a hands-on lab.

Content

Stability, performance and robustness of closed-loop control systems. Robust controller design by loop shaping. Robust H-infinity controller design in the frequency domain. Multivariable decoupling controller design. Gain-scheduled controller design.

Two-degree of freedom RST digital polynomial controller. Pole placement technique and its relation to Internal Model Control (IMC), Model Reference Control (MRC) and Minimum Variance Control (MVC). Robust pole placement with Q parameterization. Parameter adaptation algorithms. Direct and Indirect adaptive control. Switching adaptive control.

Keywords

Adaptive control, robust control, digital RST controller.
