Two Alcorn State University faculty members from the Department of Advanced
Technologies and Systems Research Institute, Dr. Ognjen Kuljaca and Dr.
Jyotirmay Gadewadikar, published a peer reviewed article on intelligent systems
as part of the 31st International Convention/MIPRO held in Opatija, Croatia.
Research was performed in cooperation with Dr. Krunoslav Horvat from the Control
Systems Department at Brodarski Institute in Zagreb, Croatia. He presented the
paper on May 29th.
The paper, entitled “Robust Reduced-Order Controllers for Dynamical Systems”,
presents simulation results on the design of robust reduced-order controllers
for dynamical systems. On dynamical systems, reduced order controllers are less
expensive to implement than full state variable feedback (SVFB). Reduced order
controllers can also be employed as back-up controllers (i.e. as controllers
which are not active during the regular operation, but which are used in case of
faults). For this reason back-up controllers have to be as simple as possible.
Issues of importance of practical design of reduced order controllers include (i)
on-line computational simplicity, (ii) ability to operate solely with available
measurable quantities, and (iii) design and the ability to implement in a short
time. However, implementation recommendations and simulation results on
industry-like test beds are rarely published in research literature. This paper
detailed a design procedure, which addresses the issues above. The procedure
described in this paper allows one to achieve disturbance attenuation and
control with prescribed performance at the same time.

Zagreb. The organizer of the convention is MIPRO Croatian Society. The
convention is held under the auspices of the President of Croatia, Stjepan Mesić.
The convention is technically sponsored by IEEE Region 8 and IEEE Croatia
The convention was held on May 26 - 30. All accepted papers at the convention
went through a blind review procedure and were printed in Conference Proceedings
