Paul Kotyczka, Ass. Professor at the Technical University of Munich (Germany) spends one year at DYCOP-LAGEP from Sept. 1., 2015 in the frame of MARIE SKLODOWSKA-CURIE ACTIONS Individual Fellowships (IF), EU project 655204- EasyEBC Easy-to-Implement Energy-Based Control Design for Systems of Conservation Laws.
Summary:. The aim of EasyEBC is to develop easy-to-handle energy-based control design procedures for nonlinear systems of conservation laws in the port-Hamiltonian framework. Linear and nonlinear methods from mathematical control theory of finite- and infinite-dimensional systems will be applied for analysis and control synthesis, e.g. semi-group theory, discretization techniques, and energy shaping. The mathematics will be masked behind a user-friendly frontend that offers transparent tuning criteria for the closed-loop dynamics. Bridging the gap between mathematical complexity and easy applicability of the design tools is the main challenge of the project. As a long-term impact, EasyEBC will contribute to making nonlinear model-based control more accessible to engineers beyond academia.
