Control Seminar

High Performance Motion Control and Applications

Tsu-Chin TsaoProfessor and ChairUCLA, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Mechanical motion is ubiquitous in modern technological systems. In this talk I will present high performance digital control for generating precise mechanical motion where disturbances having both deterministic and stochastic components exist. Control algorithms that integrate adaptive filtering for minimizing random disturbances and internal models for suppressing deterministic disturbances will be discussed along with a number of application examples, including machine tools, disk drives, laser beams, magnetic bearings, and etc.
