Piezoelectric Sensitivity Analysis for Vibration Control of a Plate
Hwang, Jin-Kwon ; Song, Chul-Ki ; Choi, Chong-Ho ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 239~246
This paper investigates optimal locations of piezoelectric actuators and sensors on a thin plate. To locate actuators and sensors properly is important in controlling modal vibrations well. A piezoelectric sensitivity index is introduced to select optimal locations for vibration control of each mode. The sensitivity expresses the efficiency of actuating and sensing modal forces according to locations of a piezoelectric material on a plate. The piezoelectric sensitivities for two types of plate, an all-clamped plate, and a free-free plate, are derived theoretically and are verified experimentally. Also, its usefulness Is experimentally shown to control vibration of the all-clamped plate with piezoelectric materials.

Lee, Young-Sam ; Lee, Myung-Eui ; Kwon, Oh-Kyu ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 247~253
In this paper, we deal with the full range control problem of nonlinear boiler systems subject to complex actuator constraints. Firstly,
loop shaping design procedure［10］ is used for the controller design. Secondly, modified high-gain feedback［11］ for the loop shaping controller is adopted for the anti-windup function and the bumpless transfer technique between controllers is proposed for the full range control of nonlinear systems. Finally, the performance of the proposed controller is demonstrated through the simulation studies.
Fault Tolerant Control for Nonlinear Boiler System
Yoon, Seok-Min ; Kim, Dae-Woo ; Lee, Myung-Eui ; Kwon, O-Kyu ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 254~260
This paper deals with the development of fault tolerant control for a nonlinear boiler system with noise and disturbance. The MCMBPC(Multivariable Constrained Model Based Predictive Control) is adopted for the control of the specific boiler turbin model. The fault detection and diagnosis are accomplished with the Kalman filter and two bias estimators. Once a fault is detected, two Bias estimators are driven to estimate the fault and to discriminate Process fault and sensor fault. In this paper, a fault tolerant control scheme combining MCMBPC with a fault compensation method based on the bias estimator is proposed. The proposed scheme has been applied to the nonlinear boiler system and shown a satisfactory performance through some simulations.
A Study on the Simplified Controller for the Heavy-Load Traverse Driving System Using Performance Estimation Program
Choi, Keun-Kuk ; Lee, Man-Hyung ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 261~267
In this study, a heavy-load servo-control driving system, which are composed of controller, electro-hydraulic servomechanism, hydraulic motor, reduction gearbox, turret slew bearing and turret structure, are investigated to simplify the servo-control system. To estimate the effect of each component, nonlinear modeling and simulation are carried out. In the first stage, to prove the validity of the performance estimation program, simulation results are compared with experimental results. In the second stage, the effect of each component of the control system is evaluated and then a simplified control system is suggested.
A Study on a Real-Coded Genetic Algorithm
Jin, Gang-Gyoo ; Joo, Sang-Rae ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 268~275
The increasing technological demands of today call for complex systems, which in turn involve a series of optimization problems with some equality or inequality constraints. In this paper, we presents a real-coded genetic algorithm(RCGA) as an optimization tool which is implemented by three genetic operators based on real coding representation. Through a lot of simulation works, the optimum settings of its control parameters are obtained on the basis of global off-line robustness for use in off-line applications. Two optimization problems are Presented to illustrate the usefulness of the RCGA. In case of a constrained problem, a penalty strategy is incorporated to transform the constrained problem into an unconstrained problem by penalizing infeasible solutions.

Lee, Jong-Sung ; Kang, Ki-Won ; Park, Ki-Heon ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 276~284
In this paper, the genetic algorithm is used to design a mixed H₂/ H/sub ∞/ controller Two kinds of controller forms, Youla's form and the general form, are considered to design a mixed H₂/ H/sub ∞/ controller. Efficient searching methods are sought to minimize the given H₂cost function under the H∞ constraint. It is verified by an example that the developed algorithm can provide stable results in the region where unstable results are shown by the conventional gradient method.
Fuzzy-Sliding Mode Control for SCARA Robot Based on DSP
Go, Seok-Jo ; Lee, Min-Cheol ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 285~294
This paper shows that the proposed fuzzy-sliding mode control algorithm for a SCARA robot could reduce the chattering due to sliding mode control and is robust against a change of payload and parameter uncertainties. That is, the chattering can be reduced by changing control input for compensating disturbances into a control input by fuzzy rules within a pre-determined dead zone. The experimental results show that the chattering can be reduced more effectively by the fuzzy-sliding mode control algorithm than the sliding mode control with two dead zones. It is proved experimentally that the proposed control algorithm is robust to a change of payload. The proposed control algorithm is implemented to the SCARA robot using a DSP(board) for high speed calculations.
Predictive Control of Bilateral Teleoperation with Short Time Delay
Im, Heung-Jae ; Chung, Wan-Kyun ; Suh, Il-Hong ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 295~304
In the teleoperation system, force and velocity signals are communicated between a master and a slave robot. The addition of force feedback to a teleoperation system benefits the operator by providing more information to perform given tasks especially for tasks requiring contact with environment. When the master and slave arms are located in different places, time delay is unavoidable and it is well known that the system can become unstable when even a small time delay exists in the communication channel. The control scheme proposed in this paper is based on the estimator with virtual master model. Delayed signal from the master robot can be replaced by the estimated signal with the virtual master model. This control scheme makes the teleoperation system stable for the given time delay while the conventional scheme is not. This new control scheme is verified through numerical simulations and an experiments using the dual axis testbed of the teleoperation system.
A Sliding Mode Controller Using Neural Network for Underwater Robot Manipulator
Lee, Min-Ho ; Choi, Hyung-Sik ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 305~312
This paper presents a new control scheme using a sliding mode controller with a multilayer neural network for the robot manipulator operating under the sea which has large uncertainties such as the buoyancy and the added mass/moment of inertia. The multilayer neural network using the error back propagation loaming algorithm acts as a compensator of the conventional sliding mode controller to improve the control performance when the initial assumptions of uncertainty bounds are not valid. Computer simulation results show that the proposed control scheme gives an effective path way to cope with the unexpected large uncertainties in the underwater robot manipulator.
Design and Implementation of Rate-Based Traffic Controller for Performance Improvement of FA-Networks Employing LonWorks
Kim, Byoung-Hee ; Cho, Kwang-Hyun ; Park, Kyoung-Sup ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 313~319
As the interest of flexible manufacturing systems and computer integrated manufacturing systems increase, the distribution of centralized control systems using industrial control networks is getting more attention. In this paper, we investigate the rate-based traffic control of industrial control networks to improve the performance regarding the throughput, fairness, and error rates. Especially, we consider the protocol of Lon-
which consists of all OSI 7-layers and supports various communication media at a low cost. Basically, the proposed rate-based traffic control system is closed loop by utilizing the feedback channel errors, which shows improved performance when compared with other industrial control networks commonly operated in open loop. To this end, an additional network node called monitoring node is introduced to check the channel status without increasing the channel load. The Proposed control loop is in effect whenever the feedback channel error becomes greater than an admittable value. We demonstrate the improved performance of the controlled network system in view of throughput and fairness measures by implementing the lab-scale network system based on LonWorks and through the experimentation upon it.

Lee, Seong-Rae ; Shin, Hyo-Pil ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 320~326
The real-time simulator of a pneumatic actuation system that is composed of differential PWM signal generator, charge solenoid valve, discharge solenoid valve, actuator, load, and rotational potentiometer is developed using a DSP board and a PC. The simulator receives the control signals from the external controller through the A/D converter, updates the state and output variables of the Pneumatic actuation system responding to the input signals every sampling time, and sends out the output signals through the D/A converter in real time. The user can observe the displacements, velocities, pressures, and mass flows representing the operation of pneumatic actuation system through the PC monitor in real time. Also the user can see the moving images between the pistons and rotating arm realistically in real time. The accuracy of the real-time simulator is verified by the good agreement of the real-time simulation results and the experimental results of the pneumatic actuation system.

Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 4, 2000, Pages 327~332
In this paper, a new multi-fingered robot hand using ultrasonic motors and its control system are developed. The developed robot hand has four fingers and fifteen articulated joints. The distal joint of each finger is directly driven by ultrasonic motor and all joints except the distal joint has low transmission gear mechanism with the motor. The developed robot hand has several advantages in size compared to a hand using conventional DC motors, and in performance compared to a hand using tendons to drive joints. A VME-bus based hand control system and ultrasonic motor driver are also developed. The performance of the hand is confirmed by using the developed control system in real-time.
