This paper presents a unique approach for active vibration control of a one-link flexible manipulator. The method combines a finite element model of the manipulator and an advanced model predictive controller to suppress vibration at its tip. This hybrid methodology improves significantly over the standard application of a predictive controller for… (More)
Quality control is an important aspect of manufacturing processes. Product quality of injection molded parts is influenced by the injection molding process. In this study statistical tools were used to develop a model that relates injection molding process variables to part quality. A statistically based model pre-dictive control algorithm was developed for… (More)
A prediction adjustment parameter η for model predictive control algorithms to enhance complex trajectory tracking is introduced. The η methodology is tested in simulation and on an experimental setup using DMC and GPC algorithms.
