American Control Conference

On May 25-28 I have attended and presented at the American Control Conference. In addition, I have chaired the session on Control of Mechanical Systems. I have presented a paper on closed-loop and MIMO aspects in fault diagnosis as well as a paper on tracking control of photopolymerization processes. The articles Read more…

Closed-loop Aspects in MIMO Fault Diagnosis with Application to Precision Mechatronics

K. Classens, W.P.M.H. Heemels, and T. Oomen, Proceedings of the IEEE American Control Conference, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2021. Abstract: Fault detection is essential in precision mechatronics to facilitate maintenance and minimize operational downtime. The aim of this paper is to develop a systematic procedure from identification to accurate nullspace-based fault Read more…

A Closed-Loop Perspective on Fault Detection for Precision Motion Control: With Application to an Overactuated System

K. Classens, W.P.M.H. Heemels, and T. Oomen, Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics, Kashiwa, Japan, 2021. Abstract: Fault diagnosis is crucial in high-tech production equipment to minimize operational downtime and to facilitate targeted maintenance. Future high-tech systems have numerous complex closed-loop control systems and require compatible fault diagnosis Read more…
