Title: Faculty from Alcorn State University’s Department of Advanced Technologies Publish an Article on Intelligent Systems

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.

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 Section.

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 (ISBN 978-953-233-038-0).
