Chapter
In this chapter, the application of the methodology is extended to marine and aerial vehicles. Here, three representative systems are considered to show that the Linear Algebra-Based Control Design (LAB CD) methodology can be applied to systems of different nature. First, a model of a marine vessel is considered. It is interesting to note that the...
Chapter
In this chapter, the problem of uncertainty in the model is considered. Some ideas were already presented in the previous chapters, but here both the marine vessel treated in Chap. 5 and the batch reactor considered in the previous chapter are analyzed in detail. These two processes may be considered as representative of a broad class of processes...
Chapter
In this chapter, the use of the Linear Algebra-Based Control Design (LAB CD) methodology is illustrated, being applied to a mobile robot. Initially, the simplest kinematic continuous time (CT) model of the robot is used and neither uncertainties nor external disturbances are considered. The simplicity of the proposed control structure is based on t...
Chapter
In this chapter, the main features of the newly proposed control design methodology are presented. First, the class of systems to be considered is defined, and the key points in the design approach are drafted. Then, an introductory example allows the understanding of the main properties and to state the procedure to design the control. The Linear...
Chapter
To control the same process in discrete time, this control design methodology is applied in this chapter. Several models and discretization approaches for the same process are considered. The simpler the model is, the easier the controller results, and its tuning also becomes easier. The advantages and drawbacks of designing the control by using mo...
Chapter
In this introductory chapter, the main problem dealt with in the book is outlined, shortly reviewing the different control structures to implement the tracking of a given reference or profile. These structures appear to be complementary, and they should be combined in the search for an optimal solution of the problem. Most of the control design met...
Chapter
In this chapter, the advantages of using this methodology to design the tracking control for nonlinear processes is first summarized, and later on, some issues and critical drawbacks are discussed. As always in discrete time (DT) control, sampling period selection is crucial and should be decided as a trade-off between computational load and contro...
Chapter
In this chapter, chemical industrial processes are considered, and Linear Algebra-Based Control Design (LAB CD) is the approach used to design the controller. First, the case of dealing with a nonlinear first principles–based model of the process is considered. Then, an experimental linearized model around an operating point is considered, and, aga...

Book
This book summarizes the application of linear algebra-based controllers (LABC) for trajectory tracking for practitioners and students across a range of engineering disciplines. It clarifies the necessary steps to apply this straight-forward technique to a non-linear multivariable system, dealing with continuous or discrete time models, and outline...
Article
This work presents a simple controller, tunable by 3 parameters, capable of following variable time references. It is a Linear Algebra based Controller (LABC), developed from a First Order Plus Dead Time model (FOPDT). Two processes were selected: a high order linear process and a transesterification batch reactor from the biodiesel production proc...
Article
This paper addresses trajectory tracking problem in mobile robots considering additive uncertainties. The controller design method is based on linear algebra theory. Numerical estimation techniques are used to estimate the uncertainty value in each sample time. The controller is calibrated by stochastic way using the Monte Carlo Experiment. In addi...
Article
The problem of optimal profiles tracking control under uncertainties for a nonlinear fed-batch bioprocess is addressed in this paper. Based on the results reported in,¹ this work aims to improve the control system response against parametric uncertainty and process disturbances. The methodology is simple, easy to implement, but with excellent resul...

... Among the controllers utilized to face the difficulties in chemical processes the Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) has presented robustness against uncertainties, good performance for tracking and regulation, and is easy to implement [4]. Other control techniques, such as the based on numerical methods and linear algebra (LABC), presented good settling time and low overshoot, and good results for trajectory tracking [5]. However, it can give some drawbacks, such as a steady-state error and little robustness against disturbances if an integrator is not added to its control law. ...
... Over the past decades, the use of biochemical reactors and correlation techniques has increased greatly because of their fruitful application in converting biomass or cells into pharmaceutical or chemical products, such as vaccines [1], antibiotics [2], beverages [3], and industrial solvents [4]. Among various classes or operation regions of bioreactors, the fed-batch modes have extensively used in the biotechnological industry due to its considerable economic profits [5][6][7]. The main objective of these reactors is to achieve a given or maximum concentration of production at the end of the operation, which can be implemented by using some suitable feed rates [8][9][10]. ...
