`` Multi-objective Robust Synthesis based on Generalized KYP Lemma ''

Sponsoring organization:

Control devision of SICE (The Society of Instrument and Control Engineers)

in cooperation with

many organizations (See the Japanese page.)

The Control devision of The Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) will hold the 2007 SICE Tutorial Seminar on Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at Kagawa University in Kagawa, Japan. The seminar will be held as a part of SICE Annual Conference 2007 on its second day. The speaker is Professor Shinji Hara(Tokyo university) who received George S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award of IEEE Control System Society in 2006 with Professor Tetsuya Iwasaki(University of Virginia). The seminar features a generalized KYP Lemma for multi-objective synthesis of robust control systems. The seminar is targeted for students, young researchers including leading-edge industrial practitioners and applied researchers.

`` Multi-objective Robust Synthesis based on Generalized KYP Lemma ''


Professor Shinji Hara(Tokyo University, Fellow of SICE, IEEE)


Dynamical system design can be considered as a frequency characteristics shaping in multiple different frequency ranges, since dynamical systems are characterized by their frequency properties such as gain and phase. This seminar gives an account of a novel method of multi-objective robust control synthesis based on GKYP lemma (Generalized Kalman-Yakubovich-Popov Lemma), which is a unified linear matrix inequality (LMI) characterization of a class of frequency properties in a finite frequency range. After explanation of the background of the topic, we first quickly review the fundamental role of KYP lemma in systems and control theory and show the origin of GKYP lemma through an idea of plant/controller design integration by characterization of easily controllable plants. We then introduce the key idea of establishing GKYP lemma, i.e., a unified representation for finite frequency ranges, and provide the explicit formula of GKYP lemma and its interpretations. The last part is devoted to the synthesis problems, where we show that a certain class of design problems with multiple specifications can be reduced to LMI optimization problems. The effectiveness is confirmed by illustrating numerical design examples of PID controllers and digital filters. Finally, we make some comments on the extensions, including robust GKYP lemma and time-domain interpretations of finite frequency properties, and the future work. One hour Japanese course for summary of the seminar and discussions is set after the two hour seminar in English in order to help Japanese participants in understanding the contents deeply.
