Controlling infinite dimensional models remains a challenging task for many practitioners since they are not suitable for traditional control design techniques or will result in a high-order controller too complex for implementation. Therefore, the model or the controller need to be reduced to an acceptable dimension, which is time-consuming, requires some expertise and may introduce numerical error. This letter tackles the control of such a system, namely a continuous crystallizer, and…

H∞-Control of a continuous crystallizer
From Reference Model Selection to Controller Validation: Application to Loewner Data-Driven Control
This letter proposes a method to build a reference model, both reproducible by the system and having a desired behavior, applicable to linear time-invariant (LTI) monovariable systems and relies on the estimation of the plant’s instabilities through a data-driven stability analysis technique.
Nonsmooth H ∞ synthesis
We develop nonsmooth optimization techniques to solve H∞ synthesis problems under additional structural constraints on the controller. Our approach avoids the use of Lyapunov variables and therefore
Structured H∞‐control of infinite‐dimensional systems
A novel frequency‐based H∞‐control method for a large class of infinite‐dimensional linear time‐invariant systems in transfer function form that allows to exploit both state‐space or transfer function models and input/output frequency response data when only such are available.
Towards direct data-driven model-free design of optimal controllers
This paper proposes a novel approach to compute, directly from data, an “ optimal” reference model along with the corresponding controller, which is optimized through a suitable combination of particle swarm optimization and virtual reference feedback tuning.
Control of Systems Governed by Partial Differential Equations
Although the physical situations are quite different, the theory and controller design approach is quite similar to that of systems modelled by partial differential equations, however, delay differential equations will not be discussed directly in this article.
Data-Driven Controller Design: The H2 Approach
This book brings together the different data-based design methods that have been presented in the literature since the late 1990s under a common theoretical framework: the MRAC (Model Reference Adaptive Control) methods.
Data-driven controller validation
This paper proposes a data-driven test for closed-loop stability. The test is based on a non-conservative stability condition that can be verified without having to actually implement the controller.

A mathematical model for continuous crystallization
J. Banasiak We discuss a mixed‐suspension, mixed‐product removal crystallizer operated at thermodynamic equilibrium. We derive and discuss the mathematical model based on population and mass balance
