Advances in the Modelling of Motorcycle Dynamics
Starting from an existing advanced motorcycle dynamics model, which allows simulation of reasonably general motions and stability, modal and response computations for small perturbations from anyExpand
A Nash game approach to mixed H/sub 2//H/sub /spl infin// control
The established theory of nonzero sum games is used to solve a mixed H/sub 2//H/sub /spl infin//, control problem. Our idea is to use the two pay-off functions associated with a two-player Nash gameExpand
On the design of robust two degree of freedom controllers
Two methods of designing robust two degree of freedom (TDF) controllers are introduced, one designed to meet robust stability and disturbance rejection specifications, and the other to improve the robust model matching properties of the closed loop system. Expand
Bicycles, motorcycles, and models
The development of bicycles and motorcycles since the first patented running machine, or draisine, in 1817 is described. Bicycle modeling and control were also discussed. These models include:Expand
An H/sub infinity / approach to two degree of freedom design
The authors introduce a novel design procedure for two-degree-of-freedom controllers. The technique will be used to design a control system for the distillation column design case study described byExpand
Simplifying the H∞ theory via loop-shifting, matrix-pencil and descriptor concepts
The 2-Riccati H∞ controller formulae and derivations are simplified via various ‘loop-shifting’ transformations that are naturally expressed in terms of a degree-one polynomial system matrix (PSM)Expand
A J-Spectral Factorization Approach to H∞ Control
Necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of suboptimal solutions to the standard model matching problem associated with ℋ∞ control, are derived using J-spectral factorization theory. TheExpand
A characterization of all solutions to the four block general distance problem
All solutions to the four block general distance problem which arises in $H^\infty $ optimal control are characterized. The procedure is to embed the original problem in an all-pass matrix which isExpand
Optimal control for a Formula One car with variable parameters
The minimum-lap-time optimal control problem for a Formula One race car is solved using direct transcription and nonlinear programming. Features of this work include significantly reduced full-lapExpand
