Non-fundamental effective apparent power defined through an instantaneous power approach
This paper proposes a new definition of non-fundamental effective apparent power based on an analysis of instantaneous power flows. This new instantaneous power approach for the calculation of the non-fundamental effective ...
Design of multi-station manufacturing processes by integrating the stream-of-variation model and shop-floor data
Processdesign has been intensively studied to reduce dimensional variability of products produced in multi-stationmanufacturingprocesses (MMPs). Most of the existing studies focus on predicting variation propagation and ...
A new approach to averaging level control
In this paper, a new simple algorithm for averaging level control is presented. The proposed algorithm is based on the use of a static nonlinear controller to improve the input flow filtering by reducing the slope of the ...
Similar model reference adaptive control with bounded control effort
(John Wiley & Sons, 2011)
In this article, we propose an indirect similar model reference adaptive control scheme (SMRAC) in which the reference model is no longer constrained to be fixed but may be time varying in order to assure a bounded control ...
Second order inverse response process identification from transient step response.
(© 2010 ISA. Published by Elsevier, 2011-04)
Simple algorithms for identification of inverse response models from step response are difficult to obtain because analytically the solution of a system of coupled nonlinear equations is required. In this article we propose ...
Characterization and control of dimensionally similar systems
When a model (i.e. experimental facility) and prototype (i.e. the real system) are dimensionally similar, then it is possible to extrapolate experimental results from model to prototype. In particular, in this article we ...
Biotic degradation of poly(DL-lactide) based nanocomposites
Amorphous PLA nanocomposites based on organic modiﬁed kaolinite (KAO) and montmorillonite (MONT) at 4 wt.% were prepared by melt blending and then biodegraded in compost. All materials showed effective degradation in ...
Quality prediction and compensation in multi-station machining processes using sensor-based fixtures
New fixture technologies, such as sensor-based fixtures, will significantly improve part quality through cutting-tool path compensations in multi-station machining processes (MMPs). Successful application of sensor-based ...
PI and PID auto-tuning procedure based on simplified single parameter optimization
In this paper a new auto-tuning algorithm for PI and PID controllers based on relay experiments is proposed to minimize the load disturbance integral error (IE) by maximizing the integral gain, subject to a desired phase ...
Maximal closed loop admissible set for linear systems with non-convex polyhedral constraints
This paper deals with the computation of the maximal closed-loop admissible set for linear systems with non-convex polyhedral constraints. These constraints are modeled as the union of a finite number of convex polyhedra. ...
