An algorithm for Iterative Learning Control is proposed based on an optimization principle used by other authors to derive gradient type algorithms. The new algorithm is a descent algorithm and has potential benefits which include realization in terms of Riccati feedback and feedforward components. This realization also has the advantage of implicitly(More)
Novel stroke rehabilitation techniques that employ electrical stimulation (ES) and robotic technologies are effective in reducing upper limb impairments. ES is most effective when it is applied to support the patients’ voluntary effort; however, current systems fail to fully exploit this connection. This study builds on previous work using advanced ES(More)
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) during repetitive practice of everyday tasks can facilitate recovery of upper limb function following stroke. Reduction in impairment is strongly associated with how closely FES assists performance, with advanced iterative learning control (ILC) technology providing precise upper-limb assistance. The aim of this study(More)
In the case of linear dynamics, repetitive processes are a distinct class of 2D linear systems with uses in areas ranging from long-wall coal cutting and metal rolling operations to iterative learning control schemes. The main feature which makes them distinct from other classes of 2D linear systems is that information propagation in one of the two(More)
—This paper considers a general class of linear iterative learning control (ILC) algorithm applied to tracking tasks which require the plant output to reach given points at predetermined time instants, without the specification of intervening reference points. A framework is developed in the frequency-domain in which the reference is updated between trials.(More)
—This paper addresses the problem of reducing the impact of periodic disturbances arising from the current sensor offset error on the speed control of a PMSM. The new results are based on a cascade model predictive control scheme with embedded disturbance model, where the per unit model is utilized to improve the numerical condition of the scheme.
