  • The approach of hybrid data on tag in decentralized control system

    The study of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is concentrating on saving object related data in networks, called “data-on-network”. This approach, however, cannot adapt to some manufacturing scenarios, especially which require rapid response and process flexibility. Another alternative approach is to save the data on the tag which is attached to the object, called “data- on-tag”. But large amounts of data on tag would make reading and writing data slowly. For solving this problem, a hybrid method is proposed. What's more, three key enabling technologies are described in detail, namely, the mapping relationship between hybrid data and further manufacturing information stored in the remote database, the data model of backend database, and the decentralized control node model. The flexible automated production line is taken as an example of the decentralized control system to illustrate the utility of hybrid-data-on-tag.

  • Partially decentralized control based on IMC for a benchmark boiler

    The boiler systems are multivariable nonlinear processes showing great interactions and input constraints under a wide range of operating conditions. This paper proposes a partially decentralized control (PDC) for the problem of a benchmark boiler under the load and pressure change. The design of partially decentralized controllers is based on the non-square internal model control (IMC) principle, which is applied to design non-square decentralized controllers and that are then transformed to partially decentralized ones. This method combines the advantages of decentralized control and multivariate centralized control, and considers the coupling of the plants, thus good performance can be achieved. The proposed method is applied to the boiler model proposed in an IFAC Conference, and the controller used in PID form. Simulation results show that partially decentralized control can achieve better performance than the existing decentralized control, and compared with the multivariable centralized control, it has a simpler structure and is easier to implement and tune, so it is of great practical application potential.

  • Overlapping decentralized control based on dynamic output feedback for large-scale interconnected systems

    Overlapping decentralized control problem based on dynamic output feedback is studied for a class of large-scale interconnected systems with loop topology in this paper. According to the restriction conditions of Inclusion Principle of large-scale systems, the special overlapping structure decomposition process is carried on. The large scale system is decomposed into a series of pair-wise subsystems in the expanded space. The dynamic output feedback controllers of each pair-wise subsystem are designed, and then they are contracted to the original space. Overlapping decentralized control of the large-scale system is achieved. In controller design, Lyapunov theory and LMI approach are used to obtain the sufficient condition for stability of the overall system. And the design method of dynamic output feedback controllers is given. Because the controllers are designed only for each pair-wise subsystem, the method can avoid the difficulty in solving LMI with high dimension led by too many subsystems for general LMI method. Finally, the proposed method is applied to AGC control design of a three-area interconnected power system. The simulation results show that the performances of the designed controllers using proposed method are better than the one by LMI approach directly.

  • Decentralized control of reconfigurable robots using joint-torque sensing

    In this paper, a decentralized controller for trajectory tracking of modular and reconfigurable robot manipulators is developed. The proposed control scheme uses joint-torque sensory feedback; also sliding mode control is employed to make both position and velocity tracking errors of robot manipulators globally converging to zero. Proposed scheme also guarantees that all signals in closed-loop systems will be bounded. In contrast to some of prior works in this scheme, each controller uses a smooth law to achieve its purposes. In this method, each controller uses only local information for producing control law hence separated controller can be used to control each module of manipulator and no information exchange between modules is required. Simulation results are provided for a reconfigurable robot with three modules to verify the performance of the proposed scheme. Results show that decentralized control of reconfigurable robots is feasible, in spite of strong dynamic coupling between modules.

  • A Decentralized Control With Unique Equilibrium Point for Cascaded-Type Microgrid

    The existing reactive power polarity dependent decentralized control for cascaded-type microgrid has the problem of multiple equilibrium points. As a result, some undesired operating states may occur. To address this problem, we propose a new decentralized power sharing control scheme. The uniqueness of an equilibrium point and its small signal stability are proved.

  • Multi-overlapping decentralized control of a class of structural vibration systems

    A decentralized control problems of a class of vibration control systems of multi-story building structure having multi-overlapping structure is studied. Through the construction of seismic excitation response of the simplified dynamic model, the state space model is constructed. Applying the large system inclusion principle of constraint conditions of the extended system information overlap structure, a large system can be decoupled into a group of pair-wise subsystems. Then, the linear quadratic regulator (LQR) control laws for every pair-wise subsystems are designed, and by coordinating and contracting the pair-wise decentralized controllers from the expanded space to the original space the overlapping decentralized controller for the original system is got. Finally, a simulation example shows the effectiveness of the proposed method.

  • Convex Conditions on Decentralized Control for Graph Topology Preservation

    This technical note focuses on the preservation of a given graph topology which is usually chosen to ensure its connectivity. This is an essential ingredient allowing interconnected systems to accomplish tasks by using decentralized control strategies. We consider a networked system with discrete-time dynamics in which the subsystems are able to communicate if an algebraic relation between their states is satisfied. Each subsystem is called agent and the connected subsystems are called neighbors. The agents update their state in a decentralized manner by taking into account the neighbors' states. The characterization of the local control feedback gains ensuring topology preservation is provided. The results are based on invariance and set-theory and yield to conditions in Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) form. The conditions for topology preservation are applied to an illustrative example concerning partial state consensus of agents with double integrator dynamics.

  • Robust decentralized control for a boiler — turbine unit

    Performance control of a boiler-turbine unit is of great importance due to demands on the economical operations of power plants and environmental awareness. In this paper, a robust decentralized control of nonlinear multi input-multi output (MIMO) model of a utility boiler-turbine unit is designed. Drum pressure, generator electric output and drum water level (as the output variables) are controlled by manipulation of valves position for fuel, feedwater and steam flows.

  • Decentralized control of smart grid with fixed and moving loads

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), as intermittent loads, create frequency disturbance in power system. The system needs to balance the power generation and demand. However, in regional smart grid systems fed by renewable energy sources and moveable loads, the power transfer through tie line interconnections is strongly coupled with system dynamics. This makes the frequency stability and control process very slow. In this paper, an overlapping decomposition technique of large-scale system control is used to decouple the renewable energy penetrated power system regions. A decentralized controller is then designed to maintain the frequency in a short time. Micro- hydro Simulation results demonstrate a fast frequency control process to regulate the system under input power variation from wind turbine and load from PHEVs.
