A Closed-Form Full-State Feedback Controller for Stabilization of 3D Magnetohydrodynamic Channel Flow
We present a boundary feedback law that stabilizes the velocity, pressure, and electromagnetic fields in a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) channel flow. The MHD channel flow, also known as Hartmann flow,
Infinite-dimensional backstepping and applications to flows in electromagnetic fields
Numerous physical processes are modeled by partial differential equations and are often instrumented with boundary actuators and sensors. A major new effort has been underway in recent years to
Boundary Observer for Output-Feedback Stabilization of Thermal-Fluid Convection Loop
A 2-D model of thermal fluid convection that exhibits the prototypical Rayleigh-Bernard convective instability is considered, and a highly accurate approximation to the control kernels and observer output injection gains is found in closed form.
Detectability and global observer design for Navier-Stokes equations with unknown inputs
We present easy-to-verify detectability conditions for Navier-Stokes Equation (NSE) in two spatial dimensions with periodic boundary conditions, and describe a generic class of “detectable”
Boundary control and observation of coupled parabolic PDEs
Reaction-diffusion equations are parabolic Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) which often occur in practice, e.g., to model the concentration of one or more substances, distributed in space,

A nonlinear Lyapunov-based boundary control law is proposed for mixing enhancement in a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) channel flow, also known as Hartmann flow. This flow is characterized by an
A Closed-Form Observer for the Channel Flow Navier-Stokes System
The observer design for non-discretized Navier-Stokes partial differential equations has so far been an open problem. We present a nonlinear PDE observer that estimates the velocity and pressure
State estimation in wall-bounded flow systems. Part 1. Perturbed laminar flows
In applications involving the model-based control of transitional wall-bounded flow systems, it is often desired to estimate the interior flow state based on a history of noisy measurements from an
