    Talk Title: Computationally Efficient Design of Optimal Strategies for Passive and Semiactive Damping Devices in Smart Structures

    Abstract: In recent years, significant improvements in memory capacity and processing speed of computers have provided the ability of modeling and analyzing large and complex dynamical systems. These systems usually consist of many elements, of which some have nonlinear properties. Standard nonlinear solvers ignore the localized nature of the nonlinearities when computing responses, which can result in a very time-consuming process. However, since the nonlinearities are often limited to only a few of the many degrees of freedom (DOFs), an alternate method has been developed in which the nonlinear perturbation dynamics are excluded from the nominal linear system and evaluated based on the response of the nominal system. This reduces the high-order system to a much lower-order system of nonlinear Volterra integral equations (NVIEs), which provides a very computationally efficient solution. The total response of the system can be then easily calculated using superposition.
    This study adapts the methodology to provide a fast and computationally inexpensive method for designing control strategies implemented in but not limited to smart building structures. The development of control strategies for controllable passive dampers, i.e., semiactive damping devices, is complicated by the nonlinear and dissipative nature of the devices and the nonlinear nature of the closed-loop system with any feedback control. Control design for nonlinear systems is often achieved by designing a control for a linearized model since strategies for linear systems are straightforward. One such approach is clipped optimal control in which the desired damper forces are determined from an optimal controller (e.g., linear quadratic regulator (LQR), linear quadratic Gaussian (LQG), H2, etc.), which is designed assuming that the damping devices are fully linear actuators that can exert any forces (dissipative or non-dissipative), and a secondary bang-bang controller commands the controllable damper to exert forces as close as possible to the desired forces. However, designs using any linearized model generally results in suboptimal (and sometimes lousy) performance because the linear actuator assumption differs from the actual implementation with a dissipative damping device. Thus, one must generally resort to a large-scale parameter study (or performing an optimization algorithm) in which the nonlinear system is simulated many times to determine control strategies that are actually optimal for the nonlinear controlled closed-loop system. Herein, it is demonstrated how the proposed approach can significantly decrease the computational burden of a complex control design study for controllable dampers.

    Next, this study expands the applicability of the proposed method by demonstrating that the approach can also be adapted to accommodate the more realistic cases when, instead of full-state feedback, only a limited set of noisy response measurements are available to the controller, which requires incorporating a Kalman filter estimator, which is linear, into the nominal linear model. Furthermore, since the primary controller is rarely designed using a high-order model (because it is impractical due to numerical difficulties, as well as often unnecessary since high-order models, such as complex finite element structure models, have high frequency dynamics that remain mostly unexcited by an external disturbance), to bring the method to full maturity, a reduced-order model for control design is incorporated with the full model to simulate semiactively controlled structural responses using the proposed NVIE approach. Finally, it is explained briefly how the proposed approach can be implemented when uncertainties are involved in the system.

    This dissertation provides a broad and comprehensive methodology for designing control strategies for smart structures using the proposed computationally efficient method. Numerical results confirm the accuracy, stability, and computational efficiency of the proposed simulation methodology and specifically show about two orders of magnitude speed up relative to the conventional solvers for the typical semiactive design parameter studies.

  • Timing Over Wireless

    Mon, Sep 29, 2014 @ 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Satyam Dwivedi, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Timing Over Wireless

    Abstract: Traditionally wireless technology has been used to communicate messages. However, in this talk will focus on two other applications, namely, precise positioning in indoor environments, and clock parameter exchange of electronic nodes over wireless. Both these applications rely on measuring and estimating time related parameters over wireless.

    Our work on indoor positioning is based on a new method of distributed positioning which exploits time delays in transmission scheduling. This method achieves distributed positioning, where every node in a network knows the position of every other node, without requiring any communication among nodes. The underlying idea can also be extended to self localize a passive network node. Via extensive experiments we verify that our method is a very efficient cooperative distributed position methodology that in surpasses the capabilities and performance of many alternative in the literature.

    Precise wireless clock synchronization is the holy grail of achieving efficiency and coordination in wireless sensor networks. I will describe a new technique which provides range and clock parameter estimation simultaneously between any two node over wireless. In order to experimentally verify the algorithm, we developed a new in-house measurement model.

    Accuracies obtained by our above models are in the order of sub-Hertz for clock frequency error estimation, and sub-nanosecond for clock phase error estimation, and less than 30 cm for range estimation over a range up to 10 meters.

    Precisely estimating timing parameters over wireless results in hardware constraints. Continuous improvement in the hardware which can accomplish the tasks of positioning, clock synchronization and communication will be discussed, and our efforts towards developing an ultra-wideband (UWB) testbed will be explained.

    Speaker: Harsha Gangammanavar, Visiting Assistant Professor, Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Southern California

    Talk Title: "Multiple Timescale Stochastic Optimization and Control for Power Systems Application"

    Series: Epstein Institute Seminar Series

    Abstract: This talk will present a stochastic optimization framework which accommodates decisions at multiple timescales. The framework is motivated by the challenges associated with incorporating renewable resources into large scale power systems. The conventional thermal generation decisions are made at a coarse timescale using the stochastic decomposition algorithm. The renewable resources, network utilization and storage devices are controlled at fine timescale intervals. At this timescale we have a multistage problem which is formulated as a stochastic dynamic program, where we estimate the value of resources in storage using a piecewise linear value function approximation. Hence this framework combines a stochastic programming algorithm with an approximate dynamic programming approach. The computational results are based on incorporating wind simulation into this algorithm.

  • Chemistry Department Colloquium: “Pushing Block Copolymer Self-Assembly to its (sub-10 nm) Limits"

    Thu, Oct 02, 2014 @ 03:30 PM - 05:50 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Professor Jillian Buriak, Department of Chemistry and the National Institute for Nanotechnology, University of Alberta, Edmonton

    Talk Title: Pushing Block Copolymer Self-Assembly to its (sub-10 nm) Limits

    Abstract: Self-assembled nanostructures continue to be the focus of intense research due to their obvious inspiration from
    Nature, and secondly, their enormous utility for patterning nanoscale structures with little outside intervention.
    The directed self-assembly of block copolymers is a widely studied example that has great potential for
    producing a broad array of regular and intricate nanostructures with only a small degree of external guidance, or
    none at all. Thin layers of block copolymers can be induced to self-assemble to form very detailed patterns on
    surfaces, and in this context, they can be used a template for directing surface chemistry on a range of different
    technologically relevant interfaces. The spatially defined surface chemistry that can be accomplished, using the
    nanoscale direction from the block copolymers, ranges from metallization, to metal oxide formation, to the
    covalent attachment of small molecules, to highly controlled anisotropic surface etching. There remain,
    however, many problems, many of which are defined by the International Technology Roadmap for
    Semiconductors (www.itrs.net), with regards to block copolymer-mediated directed self-assembly. Being able to
    produce sub-10 nm features, with very low line edge roughness in a rapid fashion, accompanied by very low
    error rates is both challenging and fascinating. In this seminar, we will outline current approaches towards the
    use of self-assembled block copolymer nanostructures on technologically relevant semiconductor materials, to
    produce complex sub 10-nm features. Various routes towards accessing unexpected and useful structures will be
    discussed, along with quantification of error rates and defect densities; in many cases these structures are
    substantially smaller than what would be expected, based upon the natural periods and spacings of a given block
    copolymer. Conversion of these block copolymer nanostructures into functional metal and metal oxide
    nanopatterns will be described.
