Automatic Control

The research activity of the Automatic Control Group is organized around three thematics :

Thematic 1 : « Approche Robuste et Intégrée de l’Automatique », developed by the ARIA team with David HENRY as head;
Thematic 2 : « Fractional Systems», developed by the CRONE team with Pierre MELCHIOR as head;
Thematic 3 : « Flatness and Fault Tolerant Guidance », developed by the FFTG team with Franck CAZAURANG as head.

Automatics research team The ARIA team research work is concentrated on design and development of advanced methods for modelling, observation, fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control and guidance giving answers to increasing requirements for control system technologies in terms of safe operation autonomy and availability. These topics are integral components for health management of safety […]

Scientific presentation The motivations of such thematics are dictated by the constant concern to defend the following thesis: given its « compactness » properties, the non-integer differentiation operator forms the mathematical tool par excellence to model with a minimum of parameters the highest number of phenomena falling under as well engineering sciences as biological and physico-chemical sciences.

Scientific presentation For a Flat system there is a set of outputs named flat outputs, such that all states variables and inputs can be expressed in terms of the flat outputs and a finite number of her derivatives. This property is very useful for both path planning and controller synthesis for nonlinear dynamical systems and […]
