Topic: From Basic Control Concepts to Advanced Control System Design
Speaker: Prof. Yang SHI
Time: 14:30 pm, March 14
Venue: Room 320, Weimin Building
Basic concepts on systems and control play an essential role in the research of control systems. In this talk, we will start with reviewing some very basic stability concepts and definitions. And then we introduce the origin of input-to-state (ISS) stability and the related results. We will show the relationship among the stability definitions. Finally, some advanced model predictive control system analysis and synthesis will be presented with examples.
