This paper presents a simple but effective method for designing robust PI or PID controller. The robust PI/PID controller design problem is solved by the maximization, on a finite interval, of the shortest distance from the Nyquist curve of the open loop transfer function to the critical point-1. Simulation studies are used to demonstrate the effectiveness… (More)

In this work a new optimization method, called the heuristic Kalman algorithm (HKA), is presented. This new algorithm is proposed as an alternative approach for solving continuous , non-convex optimization problems. The principle of HKA is to explicitly consider the optimization problem as a measurement process designed to give an estimate of the optimum. A… (More)

The main objective of this paper is to present a new optimization approach, which we call heuristic Kalman algorithm (HKA). We propose it as a viable approach for solving continuous nonconvex optimization problems. The principle of the proposed approach is to consider explicitly the optimization problem as a measurement process designed to produce an… (More)

This paper presents a simple but effective method for finding a robust output feedback controller via a random search algorithm. The convergence of this algorithm can be guaranteed. Moreover, the probability to find a solution as well as the number of random trials can be estimated. The robustness of the closed-loop system is improved by the minimization of… (More)

one can see Eq. (3) is not very simple but it is used a few times for each image and so computing time are not signiicantly changed. Another problem is that now epipolar lines are no more parallel; anyway, if theta is small, one can suppose them to be still parallel and so performing the matching in the way seen before. All of this leads to a decay in… (More)
