Model based control of resonating processes using Kautz models
No Thumbnail Available
Resonating processes are a special class of systems which display oscillatory dynamics around the operating point. Very common examples of resonating systems are power electronic devices, mechanical spring-mass-damping systems, electro-mechanical systems and chemical reactors. In general the electrical and/or mechanical systems are either linear or mildly nonlinear in nature, whereas the chemical reactors are highly nonlinear in nature. Hence control of resonating nonlinear chemical processes is always a challenging problem for control researchers community. Although the traditional PI(D) controller is very popular and well established control algorithm, its design procedure is not very clear for resonating systems. Hence Model Based Control (hereafter referred to as MBC) is a preferred candidate for controlling such systems. However not much has been addressed so far on this issue in the control engineering literature.
