Robust Control of Infinite Dimensional Systems: Theory and Applications

Hitay Özbay, Bilkent University

Abstract:
The purpose of this talk is to give a tutorial review on the skew Toeplitz approach to H-infinity control of a class of infinite dimensional systems. Numerical computations of optimal and suboptimal controllers are demonstrated in Matlab on different examples. Applications to infinite dimensional flexible beam models and systems with time delays are considered. We also focus on robust stability and performance problems for data flow control in computer communication networks, and give an application example from aerodynamic flow control: suppression of cavity flow oscillations.


Biography:
Hitay Özbay received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) in 1985, the M.Eng degree in Electrical Engineering from McGill University (Montreal, Canada) in 1987, and the Ph.D. degree in Control Sciences and Dynamical Systems from the University of Minnesota, (Minneapolis, USA) in 1989. He was with the University of Rhode Island (1989-1990) and with The Ohio State University, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, (1991-2006) prior to joining Bilkent University, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 2002, on leave from OSU. He served as an Associate Editor on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control (1997-1999), and was a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Control Systems Society (1999). Currently he is an Associate Editor of Automatica (a journal of International Federation of Automatic Control), and vice-chair of the IFAC Technical Committee on Networked Control Systems.
