Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy to treat movement disorders including essential tremor, dystonia, and Parkinson's disease. Despite over a decade of clinical experience the mechanisms of DBS are still unclear, and this lack of understanding makes the selection of stimulation parameters quite challenging. The objective of this work was to(More)
Based on a state space dynamic model of a typical automotive driveline, a new control technique for the dry clutch engagement process is proposed. The feedback controller is designed following an optimal control approach by using the crankshaft speed and the clutch disk speed as state variables: a tracking problem is formulated and solved by using the(More)
Microgrids are subsystems of the distribution grid which comprises small generation capacities, storage devices and controllable loads, operating as a single controllable system that can operate either connected or isolated from the utility grid. In this paper we present a preliminary study on applying a Model Predictive Control (MPC) approach to the(More)
The paper addresses the robust design of a lateral stability controller for ground vehicles. Nonlinear vehicle dynamics are modeled by an approximate hybrid piecewise–affine model. Control of the vehicle yaw rate and lateral velocity of the center of gravity is achieved through steering and four wheels independent braking. Uncertainty in actuation is(More)
