Venue:E706, new main building

 

Abstract:

Linear parameter-varying (LPV) control theory has been well-developed over the last two decades, to deal with nonlinear and time-varying systems in control engineering problems. In LPV controller design, as the operating region becomes larger, the achievable closed-loop performance will be more limited. In such cases, switching LPV control method is useful to enhance the closed-loop control performance. In this talk, research on switching LPV control, which is being conducted at the UBC Control Engineering Laboratory, is explained. It is shown that the switching LPV control technique has a potential for improving control performance in practical engineering problems, such as machine tool drive control, automotive fuel-injection control, and wind turbine control.

 

Brief Intro of the Speaker:

Ryozo Nagamune received Bachelor and Master Degrees from the Department of Control Engineering, Osaka University, Japan, in 1995 and 1997, respectively, and Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from the Division of Optimization and Systems Theory, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2002. From 2003 to 2006, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Mittag-Leffler Institute, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA, and the Royal Institute of Technology. He has been with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of British Columbia, since August 2006, where he is now an Associate Professor. From 2013 to 2014, he was a Visiting Researcher at the National Wind Technology Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden, CO, USA, and at Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan. His research interests include robust control theory and its applications to mechatronics systems. He is an Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement, and Control. He is a Chair of the IEEE Joint Chapter of Control Systems, Robotics, and Automation, and Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Societies in the IEEE Vancouver Section. He presently holds the Canada Research Chair, Tier 2, in Control Engineering.
