2018 IEEE 18th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference (PEMC)

Promote and co-ordinate the exchange and the publication of technical, scientific and economic information in the field of Power Electronics and Motion Control with special focus on countries less involved in IEEE related activities. The main taget is to create a forum for industrial and academic community.

  • 2016 IEEE International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference (PEMC)

    The IEEE Power Electronics and Motion Control (IEEE-PEMC) conference continues to be the oldest in Europe and is a direct continuation of the conferences held since 1970. Its main goal is to promote and co-ordinate the exchange and publication of technical, scientific and economic information on Power Electronics and Motion Control. One of its main objectives is the cooperation and integration between the long-time divided Western and Eastern Europe, this goal expressed in the conference logo, as well. The conference attracts now a large number (roughly 500+) of participants from the world. An exhibition is organised in parallel with every PEMC Conference, offering space for the industry to present their latest products for Power Electronics and Motion Control. In addition to the regular oral sessions, key notes, round tables, tutorials, workshops, seminars, exhibitions, the dialogue sessions (enlarged “poster” presentations) present to the speakers a better cooperation opportunity.

  • 2014 16th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference (PEMC)

    The purpose of the 16th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference and Exposition (PEMC) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners from all over the world, interested in the advances of power systems, power electronics, energy, electrical drives and education. The PEMC seeks to promote and disseminate knowledge of the various topics and technologies of power engineering, energy and electrical drives. The PEMC aims to present the important results to the international community of power engineering, energy, electrical drives fields and education in the form of research, development, applications, design and technology. It is therefore aimed at assisting researchers, scientists, manufacturers, companies, communities, agencies, associations and societies to keep abreast of new developments in their specialist fields and to unite in finding power engineering issues.

He covers the kinematics of robot manipulators, describing the motion of manipulator links and objects related to manipulation. A chapter on dynamics includes the derivation of the dynamic equations of motion, their use for control and simulation and the identification of inertial parameters.

  • Model Construction

    The systematic design of feedback systems requires an ability to quantify the effect of control inputs (e.g., buffer size) on measured outputs (e.g., response times), both of which may vary with time. Indeed, developing such models is at the heart of applying control theory in practice. In this chapter we introduce linear difference equations to model the dynamics of computing systems and employ insights from queueing theory to construct such models. We discuss briefly how difference equations can be constructed from first principles. Our focus, however, is to construct models using statistical or black-box methods, a process that is referred to as system identification.

  • Evaluation of the Robustness of Visual Behaviors through Performance Characterization

    The robustness of visual behaviors implemented in an active vision system depends both on the vision algorithms and control structure. To improve robustness an evaluation of the performance of the several system algorithms must be done. Performance analysis can be done within the framework of control theory because notions such as stability and controllability can contribute to a better understanding of the algorithms and architectures weaknesses. In this chapter we discuss the generation of reference test target trajectories and we characterize the performance of smooth pursuit and vergence. The responses to motion are used to accurately identify implementation problems and possible optimizations. The system evaluation leads to solutions to enhance the global performance and robustness.

  • Bibliography

    Acquire the tools for understanding new architectures and algorithms of dynamical recurrent networks (DRNs) from this valuable field guide, which documents recent forays into artificial intelligence, control theory, and connectionism. This unbiased introduction to DRNs and their application to time-series problems (such as classification and prediction) provides a comprehensive overview of the recent explosion of leading research in this prolific field. A Field Guide to Dynamical Recurrent Networks emphasizes the issues driving the development of this class of network structures. It provides a solid foundation in DRN systems theory and practice using consistent notation and terminology. Theoretical presentations are supplemented with applications ranging from cognitive modeling to financial forecasting. A Field Guide to Dynamical Recurrent Networks will enable engineers, research scientists, academics, and graduate students to apply DRNs to various real-world problems and learn about different areas of active research. It provides both state-of-the-art information and a road map to the future of cutting-edge dynamical recurrent networks.

  • ContinuousTime Model Reference Adaptive Control

    This chapter deals with continuous-time model reference adaptive control using output feedback for output tracking. The key components of model reference adaptive control theory - a priori plant knowledge, controller structure, plant-model matching, adaptive laws, stability, robustness, and robust adaptation - are addressed in a comprehensive formation and, in particular, stability and robustness analysis is given in a simplified framework. The plant-model matching equation for a standard model reference controller structure is studied in a tutorial formula. Design and analysis of model reference adaptive control schemes are given for plants with relative degree 1 or larger, using a Lyapunov or gradient method based on a standard quadratic or nonquadratic cost function. Robust adaptive control is formulated and solved in a compact framework. Assumptions on plant unmodeled dynamics are clarified, and robust adaptive laws are analyzed. Closed-loop signal boundedness and mean tracking error properties are proved. To develop adaptive control schemes without using the sign of the high frequency gain of the controlled plant, a modified controller parametrization leads to a framework of adaptive control using a Nussbaum gain for stable parameter adaptation and closed-loop stability and asymptotic output tracking.

  • System Theory on Group Manifolds and Coset SpacesReceived by the editors August 24. 1971. and in revised form October 27. 1971. Presented at the NSF Regional Conference on Control Theory. held at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, August 2327. 1971.

    The purpose of this paper is to study questions regarding controllability, observability, and realization theory for a particular class of systems for which the state space is a differentiable manifold which is simultaneously a group or, more generally, a coset space. We show that it is possible to give rather explicit expressions for the reachable set and the set of indistinguishable states in the case of autonomous systems. We also establish a type of state space isomorphism theorem. These results parallel, and in part specialize to, results available for the familiar case described by x(t) = Ax(t) + Bu(t), y(t) = Cx(t). Our objective is to reduce all questions about the system to questions about Lie algebras generated from the coefficient matrices entering in the description of the system and in that way arrive at conditions which are easily visualized and tested.
