Event-triggered control is developed to reduce the communication load in networked control systems. This means that output or actuator signals are only transmitted over the network when an event-triggering condition is violated which is designed such that a certain control performance can be guaranteed. This paper considers event-triggered control subject(More)
In this paper periodic observer design for linear continuous-time systems with periodically time-varying sampling intervals and time delays is considered. Such systems arise e.g. in networked embedded control applications where limited computation and communication resources have to be scheduled. A periodically time-varying discrete-time plant model and(More)
This paper presents an energy management system for smart grids with electric vehicles based on hierarchical model predictive control (HiMPC). The energy management system realizes load-frequency control (LFC), an economic operation and an electric vehicle integration into the smart grid. The main component is the HiMPC, which allows covering different time(More)
The paper presents the controller design for a highforce short-stroke linear actuator using permanent magnets as excitation. For the desired application a very high dynamic is required despite the presence of large disturbances. After the model description, a flatness based control is presented to force the system following a reference trajectory.(More)
Robust control and scheduling for networked embedded control systems (NECS) with uncertain but intervalbounded time-varying computation and transmission delay is addressed in this paper. The NECS is described by a set of continuous-time plant models and associated quadratic cost functions. Since the uncertainty of the computation and transmission delay(More)
