Rule-Based Approaches for Controlling on Mode Dynamic Systems
(1) Development of rule-based systems (both fuzzy and crisp) for the design of optimal controllers. This development involves control variable parametrization, rule derivation with parameter perturbation methods, and the design of rule based controllers, which can be combined with model-based feedback control methods.
(2) A thorough investigation and analysis of the solutions for time-optimal control problems of oscillation mode systems, with particular emphasis on the use of phase-plane interpretation.
(3) Development of fuzzy logic control system methodology using expert rules obtained through energy reducing considerations. In addition, dual mode control is a "spin-off" design method which, although no longer time optimal, can be viewed as a near-optimal control method which may be easier to implement. In both types of design optimization of the fuzzy logic controller can be used to improve performance.
