This paper investigates the pinning synchronization of two general complex dynamical networks with lag. The coupling configuratio nmatrices in the two networks are not need to be symmetric or irreducible. Several convenient and useful criteria for lag synchronization are obtained based on the lemma of Schur complement and the Lyapunov stability theory. Especially,  the minimum number of controllers in pinning control can be easily obtained. At last, numerical simulations are provided to verify the effectiveness of the criteria.

Takagi Sugeno fuzzy expert model based soft fault diagnosis for two tank interacting system

The inherent characteristics of fuzzy logic theory make it suitable for fault detection and diagnosis (FDI). Fault detection can benefit from nonlinear fuzzy modeling and fault diagnosis can profit from a transparent reasoning system, which can embed operator experience, but also learn from experimental and/or simulation data. Thus, fuzzy logic-based diagnostic is advantageous since it allows the incorporation of a-priori knowledge and lets the user understand the inference of the system. In this paper, the successful use of a fuzzy FDI based system, based on dynamic fuzzy models for fault detection and diagnosis of an industrial two tank system is presented. The plant data is used for the design and validation of the fuzzy FDI system. The validation results show the effectiveness of this approach.

This paper deals with the improvement of the stability of sampled-data (SD) feedback control for nonlinear multiple-input multiple-output time varying systems, such as robotic manipulators, by incorporating an off-line model based nonlinear iterative learning controller. The proposed scheme of nonlinear iterative learning control (NILC) with SD feedback is applicable to a large class of robots because the sampled-data feedback is required for model based feedback controllers, especially for robotic manipulators with complicated dynamics (6 or 7 DOF, or more), while the feedforward control from the off-line iterative learning controller should be assumed as a continuous one. The robustness and convergence of the proposed NILC law with SD feedback is proven, and the derived sufficient condition for convergence is the same as the condition for a NILC with a continuous feedback control input. With respect to the presented NILC algorithm applied to a virtual PUMA 560 robot, simulation results are presented in order to verify convergence and applicability of the proposed learning controller with SD feedback controller attached.

This paper presents a set of basic problems concerning the control of an underactuated dynamic system. Exemplary system of a planar rigid body with a coupling input force is described. Lie brackets method is used to show accessibility of the system. A tracking problem is solved with computed torque algorithm. The coupling force makes the convergence to zero of all state variables errors impossible. After numerical simulation, stability of the system is mentioned.

This paper presents a gain scheduled controller design for MIMO and SISO systems in the frequency domain using the genetic algorithms approach. The proposed method is derived from the M-delta structure of closed loop MIMO (SISO) systems and the small gain theory is exploited to obtain the stability condition. An example of real system illustrates the effectiveness of the proposed output feedback gain scheduled controller design method and also the possibility to improve its performance using the genetic algorithm.

This paper addresses the problem of resource division for robotic agents in the framework of Multi-Agent System. Knowledge of the environment represented in the system is uncertain, incomplete and distributed among the individual agents that have both limited sensing and communication abilities. The pick-up-and-collection problem is considered in order to illustrate the idea presented. In this paper a framework for cooperative task assignment to individual agents is discussed. The process of negotiating access to common resources by intercommunicating agents is modeled and solved as a game against Nature. The working of the proposed system was verified by multiple simulations. Selected, exemplary simulations are presented in the paper to illustrate the approach discussed.

In this research work, a six-term 3-D novel jerk chaotic system with two hyperbolic sinusoidal nonlinearities has been proposed, and its qualitative properties have been detailed. The Lyapunov exponents of the novel jerk system are obtained as L1 = 0.07765, L2 = 0, and L3 = -0.87912. The Kaplan-Yorke dimension of the novel jerk system is obtained as DKY = 2.08833. Next, an adaptive backstepping controller is designed to stabilize the novel jerk chaotic system with two unknown parameters. Moreover, an adaptive backstepping controller is designed to achieve complete chaos synchronization of the identical novel jerk chaotic systems with two unknown parameters. Finally, an electronic circuit realization of the novel jerk chaotic system using Spice is presented in detail to confirm the feasibility of the theoretical model.

Tadeusz Kaczorek

A new method is proposed of design of regular positive and asymptotically stable descriptor systems by the use of state-feedbacks for descriptor continuous-time linear systems with singular pencils. The method is based on the reduction of the descriptor system by elementary row and column operations to special form. A procedure for the design of the state-feedbacks gain matrix is presented and illustrated by a numerical example.
