In control theory, sliding mode control, or SMC, is a nonlinear control method that alters the dynamics of a nonlinear system by application of a discontinuous control signal that forces the system to "slide" along a crosssection of the system's normal behavior. This book describes recent advances in the theory, properties, methods and applications of SMC. The book is organised into four parts. The first part is devoted to the design of higher-order sliding-mode controllers, with specific designs presented in the context of disturbance rejection by means of observation and identification. The second part offers a set of tools for establishing different dynamic properties of systems with discontinuous right-hand sides. Time discretization is addressed in the third part. First-order sliding modes are discretized using an implicit scheme - higher-order slidingmode differentiators, typically used in output-feedback schemes, are discretized in such a way that the optimal accuracy of their continuous-time counterparts is restored. The last part is dedicated to applications. In the context of energy conversion, sliding-mode control is applied to variable-speed wind turbines, fuel cell coupled to a power converter, rugged DC series motors and rectifiers with unity power factor, and electropneumatic actuator. Finally, an event-triggered sliding-mode scheme is proposed for networked control systems subject to packet loss, jitter and delayed transmissions.

DSP-based natural frame control schemes for three-phase unity-power-factor rectifiers
Guzmán Solà, Ramon; García de Vicuña Muñoz de la Nava, José Luis; Pena Alzola, Rafael
Traditionally, digital signal processor (DSP) control algorithms for three-phase power converters are designed in rotating or stationary reference frames. These approaches require the use of rotation matrices and employ linear controllers such as proportional integral (PI) and proportional resonant. This chapter presents an alternative control solution developed in the natural reference frame and applied to a three-phase unity power factor rectifier (UPFR). This solution requires no transformation matrices, and by harnessing all computation capabilities of the modern DSPs, nonlinear techniques, such as sliding-mode control (SMC) [1, 2] and Kalman filter (KF) [3], can be employed. The main features, along with the advantages and the limitations, of this approach will be discussed in detail throughout the chapter.

Coordinating model predictive control of transport and supply water systems
Sun, Congcong; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela
This book aims at stimulating discussion between researchers working on state of the art approaches for operational control and design of transport of water on the one hand and researchers working on state of the art approaches for transport over water on the other hand. The main contribution of the book as a whole is to present novel perspectives ultimately leading to the management of an envisioned unified management framework taking the recent advances from both worlds as a baseline.
The book is intended to be a reference for control-oriented engineers who manage water systems with either or both purposes in mind (transport of water, transport of goods over water). It highlights the possible twofold nature of water projects, where water either acts as primary object of study or as a means. The book is dedicated to comparing and relating to one another different strategies for (operational) management and control of different but strongly related systems in the framework of the water. In that sense, the book presents different approaches treating both the transport of water and transport over water. It compares the different approaches within the same field, highlighting their distinguishing features and advantages according to selected qualitative indices, and demonstrates the interaction and cross-relations between both fields. It will also help to determine the gaps and common points for both fields towards the design of such a unifying framework, which is lacking in the literature. Additionally, the book looks at case studies where the design of modeling/control strategies of either transport of water or transport over water have been proposed, discussed or simulated.

Dense segmentation-aware descriptors
Trulls Fortuny, Eduard; Kokkinos, Iasonas; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc
Dense descriptors are becoming increasingly popular in a host of tasks, such as dense image correspondence, bag-of-words image classification, and label transfer. However, the extraction of descriptors on generic image points, rather than selecting geometric features, requires rethinking how to achieve invariance to nuisance parameters. In this work we pursue invariance to occlusions and background changes by introducing segmentation information within dense feature construction. The core idea is to use the segmentation cues to downplay the features coming from image areas that are unlikely to belong to the same region as the feature point. We show how to integrate this idea with dense SIFT, as well as with the dense scale- and rotation-invariant descriptor (SID). We thereby deliver dense descriptors that are invariant to background changes, rotation, and/or scaling. We explore the merit of our technique in conjunction with large displacement motion estimation and wide-baseline stereo, and demonstrate that exploiting segmentation information yields clear improvements.

Real-time experimental implementation of predictive control schemes in a small-scale pasteurization plant

Model predictive control (MPC) is one of the most used optimization-based control strategies for large-scale systems, since this strategy allows to consider a large number of states and multi-objective cost functions in a straightforward way. One of the main issues in the design of multi-objective MPC controllers, which is the tuning of the weights associated to each objective in the cost function, is treated in this work. All the possible combinations of weights within the cost function affect the optimal result in a given Pareto front. Furthermore, when the system has time-varying parameters, e.g., periodic disturbances, the appropriate weight tuning might also vary over time. Moreover, taking into account the computational burden and the selected sampling time in the MPC controller design, the computation time to find a suitable tuning is limited. In this regard, the development of strategies to perform a dynamical tuning in function of the system conditions potentially improves the closed-loop performance. In order to adapt in a dynamical way the weights in the MPC multi-objective cost function, an evolutionary-game approach is proposed. This approach allows to vary the prioritization weights in the proper direction taking as a reference a desired region within the Pareto front. The proper direction for the prioritization is computed by only using the current system values, i.e., the current optimal control action and the measurement of the current states, which establish the system cost function over a certain point in the Pareto front. Finally, some simulations of a multi-objective MPC for a real multi-variable case study show a comparison between the system performance obtained with static and dynamical tuning.

Posture detection with waist-worn accelerometer : an application to improve Freezing of Gait detection in Parkinson’s disease patients

Freezing of Gait (FoG) is one of the most disturbing symptoms in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Current algorithms that detect this symptom depend on frequency features extracted from wearable systems. These algorithms have only been evaluated under laboratory conditions and, in real life, they might present false positives, reducing the reliability of the algorithm. This paper presents the evaluation of 20 PD patients in their homes and the inclusion of a posture algorithm to contextualize FoG detection. This algorithm, in average, improves specificity a 5% while preserves the sensitivity. In some patients, specificity increases by 11.9% maintaining the sensitivity.

Navigation canals are used for transport purposes. In order to allow safe navigation the water level should be kept in a certain range around the Normal Navigation Level (NNL). The water level is disturbed by known and unknown inputs, like tributaries, municipal water flows, rain, etc. Some of these inputs can be used to control the water level. If the geometry requires it, canal reaches are connected by locks. The operation of these locks sometimes can disturb the water level, if the difference between the upstream and downstream water level is large. The objective is to minimize the disturbances caused by these lock operations on the water level in order to maintain the NNL. In this work the global management of the canal reach is discussed and an option to maintain the NNL by active control is introduced. Some inputs to the system, such as other confluences or gates on the side of the locks, can be controlled automatically to react to the disturbances caused by the lock operations using model predictive control to maintain the desired water level.
