Predictive Control of Industrial Drive Systems

High-performance predictive control of drive systems with multiple mechanical elasticity

Industrial Examples

  • Rolling-mills, Belt conveyors, Robot manipulators, Textile or paper machines, Wind turbines

Control Challenges

  • Severe torsional vibrations
  • Excessive shaft twists
  • Difficulty with adjusting speed characteristics

Outcomes (since Jan 2008)

  • A new speed control framework with explicit torque constraints handling
  • Experimentally validated
  • 5 Publications (3 conf., 2 journal)
  • 2 masters students (1 completed)
  • 2 exchange visits
