PI output feedback control of differential linear repetitive processes.
Automatica, 44, .
Repetitive processes are characterized by a series of sweeps, termed passes, through a set of dynamics defined over a finite duration known as the pass length. On each pass an output, termed the pass profile, is produced which acts as a forcing function on, and hence contributes to, the dynamics of the next pass profile. This can lead to oscillations which increase in amplitude in the pass-to-pass direction and cannot be controlled by standard control laws. Here we give new results on the design of physically based control laws. These are for the sub-class of so-called differential linear repetitive processes which arise in applications areas such as iterative learning control. They show how a form of proportional-integral (PI) control based only on process outputs can be designed to give stability plus performance and disturbance rejection.
