This thesis discusses motion control of mechatronic systems of which the dynamic behaviour depends on the value of one external parameter, which represents the varying operating condition of the system. High performance motion control is obtained by taking into account variations in dynamic behaviour. Robust Linear-Time-Invariant (LTI) control techniques(More)
This presentation proposes a gain-scheduling-control technique for mechatronic systems with position dependent dynamics. The proposed method fits in the framework of traditional gain scheduling, where several controllers designed for fixed operating points are interpolated to construct a global gain-scheduling controller. A new interpolation approach is(More)
This presentation discusses the control of a machine tool of which the dynamics change significantly with the position of the tool in the workspace. Maximal performance can only be achieved if the coefficients of the controller are also explicitly dependent on the instantaneous position of the machine-tool. Two control design approaches for systems with(More)
