This paper attempts to set a unified scene for various linear time-invariant (LTI) control system design schemes, by transforming the existing concept of “computer-aided control system design” (CACSD) to novel “computer-automated control system design” (CAutoCSD). The first step towards this goal is to accommodate, under practical constraints, various design objectives that are desirable in both time and frequency domains. Such performance-prioritised unification is aimed at relieving… 
PID control system analysis and design
TLDR
A computerized simulation-based approach is presented, together with illustrative design results for first-order, higher order, and nonlinear plants, and differences between academic research and industrial practice are discussed to motivate new research directions in PID control.
SMT-based Synthesis of Safe and Robust PID Controllers for Stochastic Hybrid Systems
TLDR
The technique leverages SMT solvers over the reals and nonlinear differential equations to provide formal guarantees that the synthesized PID controllers satisfy safety and performance constraints given as probabilistic bounded reachability properties.

High-order Volterra Model Predictive Control and its application to a nonlinear polymerisation process
TLDR
An analytical framework for nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) is developed and a third-order Volterra series based nonparametric nonlinear modelling technique for NMPC design is offered, which relieves practising engineers from the need for deriving a physical-principles based model first.
Evolutionary optimisation for Volt-VAR power quality control
With the more environmentally friendly smart grid initiatives during the past few years, intelligent operation and optimisation of the electricity distribution system have received an increasing
A genetic algorithm based autotuning approach for performance and energy optimization
TLDR
A genetic algorithm based autotuning strategy that can be used for optimizing performance or energy or a combination thereof, and the main advantage is that the number of possible compilations and executions that are explored in the configuration space is substantially smaller than exhaustive search.
Sound and Automated Synthesis of Digital Stabilizing Controllers for Continuous Plants
TLDR
A new algorithm based on counterexample guided inductive synthesis that automates the design of digital controllers that are correct by construction is presented that is able to automatically generate stable controllers for a set of intricate plant models taken from the literature within minutes.

Evolutionary methods for modelling and control of linear and nonlinear systems
TLDR
A hybrid evolutionary algorithm is developed, which combines the global search power of a "generational" EA with the interactive local fine-tuning of Boltzmann learning, and overcomes the weakness in local exploration and chromosome stagnation usually encountered in pure EAs.
Switching control systems and their design automation via genetic algorithms
TLDR
A direct implementation method is developed that allows the size of the rule-base to be reduced exponentially without losing the features of the PID structure and gives a good transient response with no jerking.

Adopting a Minimum Commitment Principle for Computer Aided Geometric Design Systems
TLDR
It is asserted that, by adopting this principle, computer aided geometric design systems have the potential of extending their support to the early concept exploration stages and the gradual refinement of the established concepts, and therefore have a better capability to assist the entire geometric design process.
