Current Research Projects

  • Backstepping control of coupled PDE and PDE-ODE systems

    In this research project new methods are derived for extending the backstepping approach to coupled PDE and PDE-ODE systems. This class of distributed-parameter systems (DPS) arise frequently in applications. Examples are chemical reactors described by their temperature and concentration profiles, DPS with dynamic boundary conditions, with finite-dimensional actuator and sensor dynamics or with input and output delays. The work in this project focuses on new backstepping-based design procedures for observer-based compensators.

  • Backstepping-based output regulation for distributed-parameter systems

    Besides the pure stabilization an additional basic property of a controller is to achieve the asymptotic tracking of online prescribed reference inputs in the presence of disturbances. If these exogenous signals are describable by a signal model, then the output regulation theory provides a systematic framework for the controller design. In this research project the backstepping approach for boundary controlled distributed-parameter systems is combined with results from output regulation theory. This yields new systematic procedures to determine output feedback regulators for distributed-parameter systems.

  • Fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control for distributed-parameter systems

    Due to the increasing complexity of technical systems the detection of faults and their consideration in the controller design becomes more and more important in order to assure the safety of various technical processes. Though this problem has been thoroughly investigated for finite-dimensional systems only a few results exist for distributed-parameter systems. In this research project new methods for the fault detection in infinite-dimensions are derived. In order to take faults in the closed-loop system into account new approaches are developed for fault tolerant control.

  • Functionally safe supervision and fault diagnosis of robots

    The research of this project deals with methods for functionally safe and thus fail-safe monitoring of mechatronic systems, especially robots. The objective is to detect and identify faults as well as potential hazards for humans and the process, in order to be able to transfer the system into a safe state if necessary. The method is based on the novel approach of polynomial approximation, which allows algebraic fault detection and identification, as well as to consider disturbances, nonlinear equations of motion and can be evaluated solely on the basis of measurable signals within a sliding time interval.
