Feedback Control Of Dynamic Systems, 6th Edition
Purpose and Audience The purpose of this course is to introduce the students to control theory focusing on applications to control beam dynamics, RF accelerating structures and other systems part of accelerators and light sources facilities. This course is suitable for advanced students and entry level graduate students who are considering accelerator physics as a possible career and for engineers and operators who want to learn about feedback systems applied in accelerator/light source complex. Prerequisites Basic linear algebra, calculus, differential equations, complex analysis (matrix manipulation, Eigenvalue - vectors, Fourier/Laplace transforms, etc.)
Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems, 6th Edition
Must be familiar with Matlab simulation code. (Homeworks and labs are based on Matlab) It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they meet the course prerequisites or have equivalent experience. Objectives This introductory course will focus on control theory applied to dynamic systems, in particular to systems found in accelerator/light source facilities. Fundamental concepts of control theory and feedback design techniques are explored to then introduce to the student to robust design and optimal design of controllers. On the completion of this course, the students are expected to understand analysis and design of feedback systems applied to linear time invariant systems and be able to understand intrinsic limitations in performance in the feedback system and be prepared to understand and apply in the future modern techniques of controller design. Instructional Method The course will be offering a series of lectures during the morning and afternoon followed by laboratory sessions. Laboratory sessions will introduce students to computer simulations of simple and practical problems and introduce homework problems. Homework problems will be assigned each day as complement of the labs exercises and instructors will be available to help answer questions about the homework during the evening exercise sessions. There will be a final exam on the last day of class or group presentation/project addressing the solution to particular accelerator problems either based on real cases or reported by papers . Course Content The course will include lectures on Dynamic Systems and Linear Time Invariant Systems. Basic techniques of closed loop feedback analysis and design will presented to conclude with robust design and fundamental limitations in the feedback design. Introduction to full state feedback, observers and estimation is presented to conclude with general topologies and optimal design criteria of controllers (LQR,LQG, LQGLTR, Hinf). All the examples, laboratory and homework problems are related with systems found in accelerator/light source complex. Reading Requirements The material for the course will be provided by the lecturers. Suggested reading (not mandatory) prior to the class: any undergraduate-level book on Control Systems.
This chapter gives an overview of the field of control and scheduling codesign, thus constituting the background of this work. The features of modern real-time control systems are examined with respect to resource availability. The potential disadvantages of the traditional control systems design and implementation method when used in environments featuring resource limitation and workload variations are characterized. Thus the motivations for codesign of control and scheduling are illustrated. Recent trend towards the convergence of computing, communication and control is pointed out. With emphasis on feedback scheduling and real-time control, related work in the two research directions, integrated control and computing and integrated control and communication, is roughly reviewed respectively. A perspective on feedback scheduling of Real-Time Control Systems is also given. 350c69d7ab
