PID is a widely used linear controller in industry field. However, PID is not sufficient enough to meet the increasing requirements because of the functional restrictions, like bode’s phase gain relation and waterbed effect. Nonlinear controllers are then interested by researchers. Reset control, as one of the nonlinear controllers, has more...

In the present world, a new development in technology every other year is anticipated. Robots and motion stages in the high-tech sector are required to work at higher speeds being stable, more precise, and power-efficient. Linear controllers have served well but are falling short to continue with the trend. Reset elements can enhance the...

The demand for faster production times and higher precisions in the industrial automation is ever-increasing. Resonance modes caused by flexural elements in these machines are limiting the maximum bandwidth. Because of this, high-precision motion systems in industrial machines are limited in the maximum operating speed and precision. To improve...

As systems become more lightweight, to satisfy inertia and size requirements, vibration becomes a prominent factor in their dynamics. This vibration is undesirable and various suppression methods exist such as passive, semi-active, and active. In this thesis, active control methods are explored for this purpose. The present technology utilizes...

The precision, speed, and stroke of mechatronic machines need continuous improvement. Compliant mechanisms are widely used in the precision machines, but they do not have larger strokes due to their limited deformation. In the present time, various applications also require high speed and more problems appear due to the dynamics of the compliant...

The ever-increasing industry desire for improved performance makes linear controller design run into its fundamental limitations. A nonlinear controller, such as Reset Control (RC), is needed to overcome these. RC is promising since, unlike other nonlinear methods, it easily integrates into the PID design framework preferred by industry. Thus...

Kieft, Bas (author)
The most widely applied feedback controller is PID. This controller gains its popularity because of the ease of design through loop shaping, since PID can be analyzed in the frequency domain. However, PID is limited by linearity. Reset control is a nonlinear addition to PID control. Through linearization techniques it can be designed by...

This thesis is centred around the problem that heart failures become more common when other dis-eases could be treated better. Although surgery could fix the immediate effects of heart failures, therecovery after the surgery is hindered by the heart not being able to pump enough blood. There aresolutions available but they are not implemented...
