The use of integral actions for robust set-point tracking or disturbance rejection is obliquus in control. However, the theory is still incomplete for a large class of nonlinear systems.
Some new results will be presented for the use of integral action for input-affine multi-input multi-output non-linear systems by relying on forwarding design and contraction theory. As a case study, it will be considered the problem of control temperature of a counter current heat exchanger
Daniele Astolfi received a joint Ph.D. degree in Control Theory from the University of Bologna,
Italy, and from Mines ParisTech (PSL Research University), France, in 2016.
From 2016 to 2017, he has been a Research Assistant at CRAN, Nancy, France. Since 2018, he is a CNRS Researcher at LAGEPP, Lyon, France. His research interests include observer design, output regulation and synchronization for nonlinear and hybrid systems. He serves as an associate editor of the IFAC journal Automatica since 2018 and for several conferences in control (ECC, IFAC WC). He is also IEEE member and member of the Technical Committees IEEE CSS TCNSC and IFAC TC 2.3 on nonlinear control systems. He was a recipient of the 2016 Best Italian Ph.D. Thesis Award in Automatica given by SIDRA, finalist of the ECC 2016 best student paper award and finalist of the NOLCOS 2019 best paper award.
In May, we moved to temporary offices at KC4 in Kemicentrum. Here we will stay for two years while the M-building is being renovated. See "contact" (in About) for the new visiting adress.
The department has a collaboration with the Lund Formula Student team, who are developing a fully autonomous race car to compete in Formula Student events all across Europe. They are always looking for interested and talented team members. If you are interested in a wide variety of technologies such as neural networks, control theory, ROS, etc, please visit their website or contact them at: email@example.com.
