Controller design

The fundamental question of taking uncertainty of the model in the design of high performance centralised or decentralised controllers into account is addressed from a large number of different ways: (1) Physically structured controllers in correspondence with the structure of the system to be controlled are investigated based on the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian framework and on energy control, (2) Optimisation based on e.g. semi definite programming is investigated for multi criteria robust controller design, (3) Fault tolerant controller design methods are developed that are able to detect and to modify the controller settings before a fault turns into a failure or catastrophe. (4) Model predictive control for classes of hybrid systems, etc.
