This paper describes three undergraduate research projects conducted in the Division of Engineering Technology at Wayne State University. All of the three projects were supported by the WSU Undergraduate Research Grants. The research problems, approaches taken, and respective roles of the students and faculty member are presented. The impact of(More)
Keywords: Iterative learning control Second-order sliding mode Integral Output-tracking control a b s t r a c t This paper is to present a new design of robust Iterative Learning Control (ILC) for the purpose of output tracking using continuous sliding mode technique. The main feature of the design is that the controller signal is continuous due to the use(More)
This paper is to explore further results regarding Total Fault Information-based Residual (ToMFIR) approach to fault detection in dynamic systems. The TomFIR contains the essential fault information and remains unaffected by control actions in a closed-loop system. It is composed of control input residual and output error residual. The TomFIR is formulated(More)
This paper presents the development of an experimental platform to test a real-time controller for a small Permanent Magnetic Brushless Direct Current (PM BLDC) motor using a Controller Area Network (CAN) communication bus. The CAN communication bus transmits and receives information between modules to control the speed, acceleration/deceleration, and(More)
This paper provides a new design of robust fault detection for turbofan engines with adaptive controllers. The critical issue is that the adaptive controllers can depress the faulty effects such that the actual system outputs remain the pre-specified values, making it difficult to detect faults/failures. To solve this problem, a Total Measurable Fault(More)
