Approximate dynamic programming (ADP) faces challenges in dealing with constraints in control problems. Model predictive control (MPC) is, in comparison, well-known for its accommodation of constraints and stability guarantees, although its computation is sometimes prohibitive. This paper introduces an approach combining the two methodologies...

In this work we propose a new practical synchronization protocol for multiple Euler Lagrange (EL) systems without structural linear-in-the-parameters (LIP) knowledge of the uncertainty and where the agents can be interconnected before control design by unknown state-dependent interconnection terms. This setting is meant to overcome two...

The vector field method was originally proposed to guide a single fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) towards a desired path. In this work, a non-uniform vector field method is proposed that changes in both magnitude and direction, for the purpose of achieving formations of UAVs. As compared to related work in the literature, the...

Practical tracking results have been reported in the literature for high-order odd-rational-power nonlinear dynamics (a chain of integrators whose power is the ratio of odd integers). Asymptotic tracking remains an open problem for such dynamics. This note gives a positive answer to this problem in the framework of prescribed performance...

This article attempts to realize zero-error constrained tracking for hypersonic flight vehicles (HFVs) subject to unknown control directions and asymmetric flight state constraints. The main challenges of reaching such goals consist in that addressing multiple unknown control directions requires novel conditional inequalities encompassing the...

To ensure the reliability of power systems, the independent system operator (ISO) manages the planning process of the maintenance of generation units for generation companies (GENCOs). This paper focuses on a widely studied two-layer long-term predictive maintenance decision making framework in a deregulated environment. In the first layer...

Controlling the operation of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) systems is arguably the most effective way to reach desired indoor conditions in buildings. Nevertheless, such control may involve complex dynamics when dealing with passive energy technologies. In this paper, we focus on maximizing the passive operation of HVAC in...

Currently, with the development of driving technologies, driverless vehicles gradually are becoming more and more available. Therefore, there would be a long period of time during which self-driving vehicles and human-driven vehicles coexist. However, for a mixed platoon, it is hard to control the formation due to the existence of the manual...

Predictive maintenance scheduling of modular-multilevel-converters (MMCs) requires estimations of the failure probabilities of MMCs during a period of time in the future. Particularly, the predicted future failure probabilities are influenced by two main factors, the mission profiles of the MMCs and the maintenance decisions on the MMCs...

Satisfying thermal comfort in indoor spaces is still a challenge in terms of energy saving, and several HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) systems have been proposed for this purpose. This paper conducts an analysis to evaluate and optimize the long-term operation of a novel HVAC system installed at The Green Village, a living...

While Model Predictive Control (MPC) is a promising approach for network-wide control of urban traffic, the computational complexity of the, often nonlinear, online optimization procedure is too high for real-time implementations. In order to make MPC computationally efficient, this paper introduces a parameterized MPC (PMPC) approach for...

In this paper, the novel Distributed Bayesian (D-Bay) algorithm is presented for solving multi-agent problems within the Continuous Distributed Constraint Optimization Problem (C-DCOP) framework. This framework extends the classical DCOP framework towards utility functions with continuous domains. D-Bay solves a C-DCOP by utilizing Bayesian...

This article proposes an output-feedback control protocol for hypersonic flight vehicle (HFV) swarms considering dynamic event-triggered communication. The peculiarities of the proposed method over existing ones consist in the following: 1) While carrying out scheduled maneuvers, the outputs of follower HFVs converge inside the convex hull...

Real-time timetable scheduling is an effective way to improve passenger satisfaction and to reduce operational costs in urban rail transit networks. In this paper, a novel passenger-oriented network model is developed for real-time timetable scheduling that can model time-dependent passenger origin-destination demands with consideration of a...

We propose a model-predictive control (MPC)-based approach to solve a human-in-the-loop control problem for a network system lacking sensors and actuators to allow for a fully automatic operation. The humans in the loop are, therefore, essential; they travel between the network nodes to provide the remote controller with measurements and to...

Model Predictive Control (MPC) has recently gained increasing interest in the adaptive management of water resources systems due to its capability of incorporating disturbance forecasts into real-time optimal control problems. Yet, related literature is scattered with heterogeneous applications, case-specific problem settings, and results...

Model predictive control (MPC) has been widely used for traffic management, such as for minimizing the total time spent or the total emissions of vehicles. When long-term green urban mobility is considered including e.g. a constraint on the total yearly emissions, the optimization horizon of the MPC problem is significantly larger than the...
