Design of feedback systems, including data-based control, fault tolerant control, switching control, observer design, supervision and computational techniques.

IFAC Technical Committee 2.1: Control Design



Develop novel methods for solving control design problems, based on the classical ones like stabilization, tracking and regulation, disturbance attenuation and decoupling problems, but including a variety of additional requirements (robustness or adaptation capabilities, decentralized structure, fault detection and isolation) and for different classes of systems (linear/nonlinear, hybrid, event driven).

Develop stable numerical tools for the implementation of control algorithms and new methods for model validation.

Explore further widely studied paradigms like AI-based and data-based control, or several kind of observer-based methods for states' and parameters’ estimation.

Assess and compare design methods on benchmark academic examples, on typical industrial systems and also on new areas of application (e.g., Smart Grids/Cities, Innovative Robotic Solutions, Logistics and Transport, System Biology and Neuroscience, Healthcare).
