Adaptive Actuator Failure Compensation

Actuator failures may cause severe problems in control systems, such as flight control, process control, and power systems. Actuator failure compensation is an important research topic of both theoretical and practical significance. It is desirable that a control system is able to compensate actuator failures, by using the remaining actuation to accomplish a desired control task. Adaptive control is capable of accommodating system parametric, structural, and environmental uncertainties, and it is suitable for control of systems with actuator failures which are usually unknown in terms of failed actuators, failure time instants, and failure values. This thesis project is to use adaptive algorithms for control of systems with both unknown plant parameters and actuator failure parameters. The objective is to learn and apply adaptive control theory to some advanced application examples such as process control and power systems. Strong interest and good background in system modeling, analysis, and simulations are needed.
