    ABSTRACT: A decentralized proportional–integral–derivative neural network (PIDNN) control scheme is proposed to regulate and stabilize a fully suspended five degree-of-freedom (DOF) active magnetic bearing (AMB) system which is composed of two radial AMBs (RAMBs) and one thrust AMB (TAMB). First, the structure and operating principles of the five-DOF AMB system are introduced. Then, the adopted differential driving mode (DDM) for the drive system of the AMB is analyzed. Moreover, due to the exact dynamic model of the five-DOF AMB system is vague, a decentralized PIDNN controller is proposed to control the five-axes of the rotor simultaneously in order to confront the uncertainties including inherent nonlinearities and external disturbances effectively. Furthermore, the connective weights of the PIDNN are trained on-line and the convergence analysis of the regulating error is provided using a discrete-type Lyapunov function. Based on the decentralized concepts, the computational burden is reduced and the controller design is simplified. Finally, the experimental results show that the proposed control scheme provides good control performances and robustness for controlling the fully suspended five-DOF AMB system in different operating conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Wireless communication provides convenience service for mobile devices. Considering different wireless characteristics, e.g., WIFI and 3G/4G, a mobile device user may manually change its wireless connection. For intelligent devices, users hope to keep the cooperative networking to work in background automatically. The paper introduces a new method of triggering cooperative networking among portable devices, which is named Active Cooperative Networking Recognition Method (ACNRM). Considering the increasing sensing ability of current smart devices, the method exploits accelerometers in smart devices to recognize some featured activities of the device users, and then trigger different networking operations. The method assists mobile devices to be aware of the changes in their environments without sending periodical message beacons. Thus it can be used for temporary networking among smart devices on vehicles and can save the networking cost.

    ABSTRACT: An empirical mode decomposition based recurrent Hermite neural network (ERHNN) prediction model is proposed to predict short-term traffic flow in this study. First, a recurrent Hermite neural network (RHNN) prediction model with different orthonormal Hermite polynomial basis functions (OHPBFs) as activation functions is introduced. Then, to further mitigate the influence of noise and improve the accuracy of prediction, an empirical mode decomposition (EMD) method is derived to decompose the original short-term traffic flow data into several intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) and adopt them as the inputs for the RHNNs. Therefore, an ERHNN prediction model, which comprises good predictive ability for the nonlinear and non-stationary signals through the combination of the merits of OHPBFs, EMD and EHNN, is proposed to predict short-term traffic flow more effectively. The validity of the ERHNN prediction model is verified using all day short-term traffic flow data at high way I-80W in California. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed ERHNN prediction model is with superior performance compared with the pure recurrent neural network (RNN) and RHNN prediction models.

    ABSTRACT: Eco-driving skill has been getting more and more attentions because of global warning and increasing oil price. So far, existing eco-driving assistance systems mainly offered raw instantaneous fuel economy to driver. However, inexperience driver still had the difficulty to turn raw fuel economy information into proper eco-driving behavior. For this situation, an intelligent eco-driving suggestion system based on vehicle loading model was developed. The instantaneous fuel economy was computed according to the information from vehicle on board diagnostic system. In addition, fuzzy inference system was applied to estimate eco-level and fuzzy rules were utilized to establish a vehicle loading model. The appropriate eco-driving suggestion was analyzed by built-in artificial intelligence and can be displayed on any Android portable device. Finally, the developed eco-driving suggestion system was ported on Smart Vehicle Information Gateway, installed on real vehicle and tested on real track. The experimental results proved that 7% fuel economy can be improved.

    ABSTRACT: An adaptive complementary sliding-mode control (ACSMC) system with a multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) recurrent Hermite neural network (RHNN) estimator is proposed to control the position of the rotor in the axial direction of a thrust active magnetic bearing (TAMB) system for the tracking of various reference trajectories in this study. First, the operating principles and dynamic model of the TAMB system using a linearized electromagnetic force model is derived. Then, a conventional sliding-mode control (SMC) system is designed for the tracking of various reference trajectories. Moreover, a complementary sliding-mode control (CSMC) system is adopted to reduce the guaranteed ultimate bound of the tracking error by half while using the saturation function as compared with the SMC. Furthermore, since the system parameters and the external disturbance are highly nonlinear and time-varying, the ACSMC is proposed to further improve the control performance and increase the robustness of the TAMB system. In the ACSMC, the MIMO RHNN estimator with estimation laws is proposed to estimate two complicated dynamic functions of the system on-line. In addition, a robust compensator is proposed to confront the minimum approximated errors and achieve the robustness. Finally, some experimental results for the tracking of various reference trajectories show that the control performance of the ACSMC is significantly improved comparing with the SMC and CSMC.

    ABSTRACT: This study presents a robust nonsingular terminal sliding-mode control (RNTSMC) system to achieve finite time tracking control (FTTC) for the rotor position in the axial direction of a nonlinear thrust active magnetic bearing (TAMB) system. Compared with conventional sliding-mode control (SMC) with linear sliding surface, terminal sliding-mode control (TSMC) with nonlinear terminal sliding surface provides faster, finite time convergence, and higher control precision. In this study, first, the operating principles and dynamic model of the TAMB system using a linearized electromagnetic force model are introduced. Then, the TSMC system is designed for the TAMB to achieve FTTC. Moreover, in order to overcome the singularity problem of the TSMC, a nonsingular terminal sliding-mode control (NTSMC) system is proposed. Furthermore, since the control characteristics of the TAMB are highly nonlinear and time-varying, the RNTSMC system with a recurrent Hermite neural network (RHNN) uncertainty estimator is proposed to improve the control performance and increase the robustness of the TAMB control system. Using the proposed RNTSMC system, the bound of the lumped uncertainty of the TAMB is not required to be known in advance. Finally, some experimental results for the tracking of various reference trajectories demonstrate the validity of the proposed RNTSMC for practical TAMB applications.

    ABSTRACT: Real-time information of tire friction forces is invaluable for vehicle control systems, such as ABS and the electronic stability program (ESP), to achieve better stability and maneuverability. To estimate tire forces on-line, this paper proposes a robust tire force estimation algorithm which is able to identify the longitudinal and lateral tire forces of each individual wheel. In addition, the estimation results are robust w.r.t variations in vehicle parameters. The dependency between the longitudinal and lateral tire forces is explicitly taken into account by incorporating friction ellipses into the estimation algorithm. Simulations based on a 14-degree-of-freedom nonlinear vehicle model are conducted and the results are satisfactory, even in the presence of sudden changes of the road conditions and variations in vehicle parameters.

    ABSTRACT: An intelligent complementary sliding-mode control (ICSMC) system using a recurrent wavelet-based Elman neural network (RWENN) estimator is proposed in this study to control the mover position of a linear ultrasonic motors (LUSMs)-based X-Y-θ motion control stage for the tracking of various contours. By the addition of a complementary generalized error transformation, the complementary sliding-mode control (CSMC) can efficiently reduce the guaranteed ultimate bound of the tracking error by half compared with the slidingmode control (SMC) while using the saturation function. To estimate a lumped uncertainty on-line and replace the hitting control of the CSMC directly, the RWENN estimator is adopted in the proposed ICSMC system. In the RWENN, each hidden neuron employs a different wavelet function as an activation function to improve both the convergent precision and the convergent time compared with the conventional Elman neural network (ENN). The estimation laws of the RWENN are derived using the Lyapunov stability theorem to train the network parameters on-line. A robust compensator is also proposed to confront the uncertainties including approximation error, optimal parameter vectors, and higher-order terms in Taylor series. Finally, some experimental results of various contours tracking show that the tracking performance of the ICSMC system is significantly improved compared with the SMC and CSMC systems.

    ABSTRACT: A recurrent functional link (FL)-based fuzzy neural network (FNN) controller is proposed in this study to control the mover of a permanent-magnet linear synchronous motor (PMLSM) servo drive to track periodic reference trajectories. First, the dynamic model of the PMLSM drive system is derived. Next, a recurrent FL-based FNN controller is proposed in this study to control the PMLSM. Moreover, the online learning algorithms of the connective weights, means, and standard deviations of the recurrent FL-based FNN are derived using the back-propagation (BP) method. However, divergence or degenerated responses will result from the inappropriate selection of large or small learning rates. Therefore, an improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) is adopted to adapt the learning rates of the recurrent FL-based FNN online. Finally, the control performance of the proposed recurrent FL-based FNN controller with IPSO is verified by some simulated and experimental results.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a robust dynamic sliding mode control system (RDSMC) using a recurrent Elman neural network (RENN) is proposed to control the position of a levitated object of a magnetic levitation system considering the uncertainties. First, a dynamic model of the magnetic levitation system is derived. Then, a proportional-integral-derivative (PID)-type sliding-mode control system (SMC) is adopted for tracking of the reference trajectories. Moreover, a new PID-type dynamic sliding-mode control system (DSMC) is proposed to reduce the chattering phenomenon. However, due to the hardware being limited and the uncertainty bound being unknown of the switching function for the DSMC, an RDSMC is proposed to improve the control performance and further increase the robustness of the magnetic levitation system. In the RDSMC, an RENN estimator is used to estimate an unknown nonlinear function of lumped uncertainty online and replace the switching function in the hitting control of the DSMC directly. The adaptive learning algorithms that trained the parameters of the RENN online are derived using Lyapunov stability theorem. Furthermore, a robust compensator is proposed to confront the uncertainties including approximation error, optimal parameter vectors, and higher order terms in Taylor series. Finally, some experimental results of tracking the various periodic trajectories demonstrate the validity of the proposed RDSMC for practical applications.

    ABSTRACT: A recurrent functional-link (FL)-based fuzzy-neural-network (FNN) controller with improved particle swarm optimization (IPSO) is proposed in this paper to control a three-phase induction-generator (IG) system for stand-alone power application. First, an indirect field-oriented mechanism is implemented for the control of the IG.

Furthermore, IPSO is adopted to adjust the learning rates to improve the online learning capability of the recurrent FL-based FNNs. Finally, some experimental results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed recurrent FL-based FNN-controlled IG system.

    ABSTRACT: A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) based computed force control system using an Elman neural network (ENN) is proposed to control the mover position of a linear ultrasonic motor (LUSM) in this paper. First, the structure and operating principle of the LUSM are introduced. Then, the dynamics of the LUSM mechanism with the introduction of a lumped uncertainty, which include the friction force, are derived. Since the dynamic characteristics and motor parameters of the LUSM are nonlinear and time varying, a computed force control system using ENN is designed to improve the control performance for the tracking of various reference trajectories. The ENN with both online learning and excellent approximation capabilities is employed to estimate a nonlinear function including the lumped uncertainty of the moving table mechanism. Moreover, the Lyapunov stability theorem and the projection algorithm are adopted to ensure the stability of the control system and the convergence of the ENN. Furthermore, an FPGA chip is adopted to implement the developed control algorithm for possible low-cost and high-performance industrial applications. The experimental results show that excellent positioning and tracking performance are achieved, and the robustness to parameter variations and friction force can be obtained as well using the proposed control system.

    ABSTRACT: The robust control of a linear ultrasonic motor based X-Y-thetas motion control stage to track various contours is achieved by using an adaptive interval type-2 fuzzy neural network (AIT2FNN) control system in this study. In the proposed AIT2FNN control system, an IT2FNN, which combines the merits of an interval type-2 fuzzy logic system and a neural network, is developed to approximate an unknown dynamic function. Moreover, adaptive learning algorithms are derived using the Lyapunov stability theorem to train the parameters of the IT2FNN online. Furthermore, a robust compensator is proposed to confront the uncertainties including the approximation error, optimal parameter vectors, and higher order terms in Taylor series. To relax the requirement for the value of lumped uncertainty in the robust compensator, an adaptive lumped uncertainty estimation law is also investigated. In addition, the circle and butterfly contours are planned using a nonuniform rational B-spline curve interpolator. The experimental results show that the contour tracking performance of the proposed AIT2FNN is significantly improved compared with the adaptive type-1 FNN. Additionally, the robustness to parameter variations, external disturbances, cross-coupled interference, and frictional force can also be obtained using the proposed AIT2FNN.
