Topic one:

Control, detection and estimation

    The main objective of this presentation is to give a unified view of feedback control, fault detection and estimation issues under the aspects of information and optimization. This would be helpful to achieve integrated design and implementation of fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control schemes, both in the model-based and data-driven fashion.

Topic Two:

Fault Detection and Diagnosis for Closed-Loop Dynamic Systems

   The model based fault diagnosis technique for dynamic systems has been developed over 40 years, however, most of the results are obtained for open-loop systems, very few results are concerning closed-loop systems. In this talk, the essential difference between open-loop and closed-loop fault diagnosis is analysedfirst, then a design method is given for the classical UIO method and the robust observer method to make themstill effective for closed-loop systems.A FDD design method is also give for a class of nonlinear systems. Finally, simulation and experiment results are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.

Topic Three:

New Idea, Theory, Principle and Methods for System Identification

   Control science casts the glory of our age, and the computer chips with high integration are the masterpiece of automation science and technology. The brilliant achievements of control science across time and space -- the abilities of the computing and information processing of electronic equipments and electronic products completely have changed and are changing the way of life, information society, and are beautifying our life.

  Behind it, we cannot help but ask: what is control science and what is the foundation of control science?

  Control science is to change the trajectory of things, make it develop in the direction we expect, on the basis of recognizing things' motion laws and by applying specific and wonderful control laws. The equations that describe the motion laws of things are the mathematical models. The mathematical models are the basis of control science and play an important role in control science development, and are the foundation of all sciences. System identification is the theory and methods of studying and establishing the mathematical models of dynamical systems.

  This topic is to introduce some new idea, theory, principle, concept and methods of system identification, which involve the auxiliary model identification idea, the multi-innovation identification theory, the hierarchical identification principle, the coupling identification concept and methods. These can be applied to linear-parameter systems, bilinear-parameter systems, multi-linear-parameter systems, bilinear systems, nonlinear systems and generate numerous and various identification methods.

Topic Four:

Modeling, Control and Energy Management of PEM Fuel Cell systems

   Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC) are electrochemical devices that convertthe chemical energy of hydrogen into electricity through an electrochemicalreaction of an hydrogen-containing fuel with oxygen. The result of thisreaction is electrical energy, heat (thermal energy) and water, and consequently PEMFC are clean energy generators . Control systems play an important role in PEMFC technology. In this talk, different aspects related with the role ofcontrol technology in PEMFC will be described:

   lPEMF Care complex systems that have to be operated appropriately in order to achieve good efficiency and improve life time. Usually PEMFC are used as part of greater hybrid systems. During the talk the role of PEMFC in different applications (stationary and mobile) will be described. How control systems are used to coordinate all elements in hybrid systems will be explained, too.

    lPEMF Cphysical principles are described by partial differential equations. All relevant variables are distributed. This makes modeling, sensing and controlling a hard problem. During the talk, most relevant problems inmodeling, controller design, parameter estimation and state observation in PEMFC will be described.

Topic Five:

AdaptiveParameter Estimation and Control via Parameter Error: A New Framework

   Adaptive parameterestimation and adaptive control have been well developed for uncertain systemsto improve modeling and control performance. However, the well-known parameter estimation and adaptive control methods have been mainly designed based on the gradient algorithms (with appropriate modifications) with prediction error or control error. Hence, the parameter estimation convergence and the online verification of the required persistent excitation (PE) condition are not trivial in this framework. In this talk, we will introduce a novel robust, fast adaptiveparameter estimation framework, where the parameter estimation error between the unknown parameters and their estimates are explicitly obtained and then use to drive several online adaptation algorithms. This new adaptation even allows to achieve finite-time parameter estimation. Moreover, we will introduce anintuitive and numerically feasible approach to online verify the PE condition. Finally, several practical application of this new adaptation to in-car parameters, adaptive control design and approximate dynamic programing forrobotics and will be presented.
