Talk Title: Discrete-Time Zero-Sum Games for Nonlinear Systems via Adaptive Dynamic Programming

Abstract: In this talk, the principle of ADP is discussed. A novel iterative zero-sum ADP algorithm is introduced for solving infinite horizon discrete-time two-player zero-sum games of nonlinear systems. The present iterative zero-sum ADP algorithm permits arbitrary positive semi-definite functions to initialize the upper and lower iterations. When the saddle-point equilibrium exists, both the upper and lower iterative value functions are proven to converge to the optimal solution of the zero-sum game, where the existence criteria of the saddle-point equilibrium are not required. If the saddle-point equilibrium does not exist, the upper and lower optimal performance index functions are obtained, respectively, where the upper and lower performance index functions are proven to be not equivalent. Finally, simulation results are shown to illustrate the performance of the present method.

Talk Title: Adaptive transient performance enhancement control and its applications in microgrid

Abstract: A microgrid is a small power system consisting of distributed generation units, energy storage units, and loads, and has the characteristics include low inertia and large uncertainties. The traditional microgrid control strategies mainly consider steady-state performance, whereas transient performance is not quantitatively analyzed. Learning-based nonlinear control methods are also criticized by their uncertain performance during transient stage. To ensure the stable and efficiently operation of micro-grids, for example ship power systems (SPS), adaptive transient performance enhancement control is introduced in this talk. Various applications are also demonstrated.

Talk Title: Fuzzy Adaptive Control for A Class of Nonlinear Interconnected Large-Scale Systems

Abstract: Practical control systems, such as aerospace systems, robot manipulators and chemistry reaction process, possess highly nonlinear, large-scale, uncertain, multivariable and strong coupling characteristics, making it extremely challenging to model accurately. As a result, the control theory and method based on precise mathematical model cannot solve the control problem for this kind of complex nonlinear system. Thanks to the fuzzy control approach that has been successfully used to handle uncertain nonlinear systems, which provides a possibility to deal with above-mentioned challenge. We propose an fuzzy adaptive control strategy for a class of interconnected nonlinear large scale systems. Specifically, the nonlinear systems considered consist of unmodeled uncertainties, unmeasured states, unknown interconnected terms, unknown control directions, and actuator faults. The developed control scheme guarantees that all closed loop signals are bounded and outputs of each subsystem converge to the neighborhood of origin whose size can be made as small as desired by appropriately selecting design parameters.

Talk Title: A Data-driven State Observation Method for Atomic Spin-exchange Relaxation-free Comagnetometer

Abstract:  With the development of quantum mechanics, modern optics and atomic manipulation technique, the traditional electromechanical and optical sensing has gradually developed to quantum sensing based on intrinsic properties of atoms. Atomic spin-exchange relaxation-free (SERF) comagnetometer, which can sense inertial rotation using atomic spins, is one kind of quantum sensors with ultra-sensitivity.This talk is about the atomic dual-axis spin-exchange relaxation-free (SERF) comagnetometers. In our work, we first establish a state-space model of the atomic SERF comagnetometer system according to its linearized Bloch equations, by selecting the transverse polarizations of electron spin and nuclear spin as the state variables. However, the transverse nuclear spin polarizations cannot be directly measured, which means some of the system states cannot be directly observed. To solve this problem, a data-driven state observation (DDSO) method is developed to estimate the nuclear spin polarizations in real time. Simulation results based on practical system parameters illustrate the feasibility of the DDSO method. In the end, some comments are also given on the meaning and value of this DDSO method.

Talk Title:  Robust Event-Triggered Control of Nonlinear Systems: Three Examples

Abstract:  This talk discusses the design of event triggered control schemes for nonlinear systems subject to both external disturbances and dynamic uncertainties. To avoid Zeno behavior, this paper proposes an event-triggering mechanism that uses not only the measured system state but also an estimation of the influence of the external disturbances and dynamic uncertainty. It is shown that the proposed event-triggering mechanism guarantees that the inter-sampling intervals are bounded blow by a positive constant, leading to the absence of Zeno phenomenon. Moreover, the closed-loop event-triggered system is input-to-state stable with the external disturbance as the input. Three examples are employed to show the basic idea.
