Continuing with the SYSTEC presentations, we will now have:

  • December 7, 16:00 – 16:30 (I-105– A Walk Through Constrained Optimization-Based Control Problems, Ionela Prodan (Assoc. Prof. HDR at LCIS lab, Univ. Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble INP, Valence, France), Vincent Marguet (PhD candidate, at LCIS lab, Univ. Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble INP, Valence, France) and Huu Thinh Do (PhD candidate, at LCIS lab, Univ. Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble INP, Valence, France)
    • Today’s systems have complex architectures, are bounded by heterogeneous constraints and have to respect challenging operational costs. Thus, optimization-based approaches, which fully exploit changes in mission, condition and environment, are becoming ubiquitous within the community.
      This talk will consider the following research contributions: i) the application of differential flatness for the resolution of various constrained-optimization problems (with auxiliary tools such as port-Hamiltonian modeling and B-splines representations); ii) motion planning via feedback linearization and model predictive control, for unmanned surface and aerial vehicles (with particular emphasis on multicopter study and experimental validation); iii) the study and application of hierarchical control strategies for DC microgrids (power balancing, profile generation and tracking, converter control, etc.).
  • December 14, 16:00 – 16:30 (Room TBD) A fast path planning algorithm for unmanned aerial vehicles, Mohammad Reza Ranjbar Divkoti, SYSTEC, FEUP.
