Talk of Dmitry Voytsekhovsky (Queen's)

Time and place: Wednesday, 3:00pm-3:30pm, 234 Jeffery Hall
Title: Stabilization of single-input nonlinear systems with sliding mode control (½ hour)
Abstract: In this talk we will investigate approaches of stabilizing single-input nonlinear systems using sliding mode control. The idea is based on defining a local coordinate transformation for the system with given robust relative degree, and then finding a control law, in the new coordinates, which steers the system to the origin.
