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)
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)
— This paper addresses robust control and scheduling codesign for networked embedded control systems (NECS) with uncertain but interval-bounded time-varying computation and communication delays. The NECS is modeled as a discrete-time switched linear system with polytopic uncertainty. A robust receding-horizon control and scheduling problem with a quadratic(More)
— The paper presents the controller design for a high-force 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)
In this paper we present theoretical and experimental results for designing and operating a special linear electromagnetic motor as a variable engine valve actuator. Detailed description is given to the design procedure to meet the requirements of high dynamic and low power consumption, including the determination of actuator topology and parameters, the(More)
