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...

This article describes an extension of the well-known model reference adaptive control (MRAC) approach. The extension relies on explicitly involving the tracking error in the feedback control law: it is shown that including this term along with its appropriate extra adaptive gain allows one to handle possibly unstable reference dynamics....

This paper focuses on the development of linear Switched Box–Jenkins (SBJ) models for approximating complex dynamical models of biological wastewater treatment processes. We discuss the adaptation of these processes to the SBJ framework, showing the model's generality and flexibility as a class of switched systems that can offer accurate...

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...

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...

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 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...

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...

Industrial and academic interest converge on scheduling flow shops with sequence- and time-dependent maintenance. We posit that anticipatory, integrated scheduling of operational and maintenance tasks leads to superior performance to purely 'wait-then-fix' handling of the maintenance tasks. Motivated by an industrial problem with (sequence...

This paper deals with the train scheduling problem for metro networks taking into account time-dependent passenger origin–destination demands and train speed profiles. The aim is to adjust train schedules online according to time-dependent passenger demands so that passenger satisfaction and operational costs are jointly optimized. An...

We present a model predictive control framework for a class of nonlinear systems affected by additive stochastic disturbances with (possibly) unbounded support. We consider hard input constraints and chance state constraints and we employ the unscented transform method to propagate the disturbances over the nonlinear dynamics in a...

We propose a novel method to improve the convergence performance of model predictive control (MPC) for setpoint tracking, by introducing sub-references within a multilevel MPC structure. In some cases, MPC is implemented with a short prediction horizon due to limited on-line computation capacity, which could lead to deteriorated dynamic...

Surrogate Safety Measures (SSMs) are used to express road safety in terms of the safety risk in traffic conflicts. Typically, SSMs rely on assumptions regarding the future evolution of traffic participant trajectories to generate a measure of risk, restricting their applicability to scenarios where these assumptions are valid. In response to...

Two optimization-based approaches are proposed to optimize the power routing and turbine setpoints of offshore wind farm (OWF) collector systems during cable outages. The open-loop control strategy assumes that the network can only be reconfigured at the beginning of the outage. In contrast, the receding horizon control strategy is deployed...

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...

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...

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...

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...
