      Adaptive disturbance rejection for disk drives using neural networks 

      Levin, J.; Pérez Arancibia, N. O.; Ioannou, Petros A.; Tsao, T. -C (2008)
      This paper presents the experimental verification of an adaptive feedforward disturbance rejection scheme for hard disk drives. The control scheme is shown to reduce the error during track-following by as much as 11.8%. ...

      Adaptive mode suppression scheme for an aeroelastic airbreathing hypersonic cruise vehicle 

      Levin, J.; Ioannou, Petros A.; Mirmirani, M. D. (2008)
      This paper presents an adaptive mode suppression scheme that is simulated on a longitudinal model of a generic airbreathing hypersonic flight vehicle. An aerodynamically optimized vehicle model is used which has a long ...

      Adaptive notch filter using real-time parameter estimation 

      Levin, J.; Pérez-Arancibia, N. O.; Ioannou, Petros A. (2011)
      The control of flexible systems is often difficult due to the exact frequencies of the elastic modes being hard to identify. These flexible modes may change over time, or vary between units of the same system. The variation ...

      Convex design control for practical nonlinear systems 

      Baldi, S.; Michailidis, I.; Kosmatopoulos, E. B.; Papachristodoulou, A.; Ioannou, Petros A. (2014)
      This paper describes a new control scheme for approximately optimal control (AOC) of nonlinear systems, convex control design (ConvCD). The key idea of ConvCD is to transform the approximate optimal control problem into a ...

      Fault-tolerant supervisory control of discrete event systems modeled by bounded Petri nets 

      Ru, Y.; Hadjicostis, Christoforos N. (2007)
      This paper considers bounded Petri nets with both controllable and uncontrollable transitions, and addresses the synthesis of a fault-tolerant supervisor in a setting where the control specifications are described via ...

      Feedback control over packet dropping network links 

      Mo, H.; Hadjicostis, Christoforos N. (2007)
      This paper studies stabilization schemes for a discrete-time control systems in which the feedback loop includes a network link that may suffer packet drops. We model the packet dropping network link as an erasure channel ...

      A scalable iterative convex design for nonlinear systems 

      Baldi, S.; Ioannou, Petros A.; Kosmatopoulos, E. B. (2012)
      A recently developed control scheme for approximately optimal control of nonlinear systems is the so-called Convex Control Design (ConvCD) methodology, that transforms the control problem of generic nonlinear systems into ...

      The wireless control network: Monitoring for malicious behavior 

      Sundaram, S.; Pajic, M.; Hadjicostis, Christoforos N.; Mangharam, R.; Pappas, G. J. (2010)
      We consider the problem of stabilizing a plant with a network of resource constrained wireless nodes. In a companion paper, we developed a protocol where each node repeatedly transmits an appropriate (stabilizing) linear ...
