The thesis also considers a major conjecture in the bio-mechanics community, that skilled human motion entails the optimization of some cost function, and shows that the typical pumping strategy used by children while playing on a common playground swing is time-optimal.

New technologies and standards are emerging which will have a dramatic effect on the design and implementation of future industrial control systems. New tools and techniques are needed to design and model systems, such as UML and modern fieldbus technology. The new IEC 61499 standard has been developed specifically to model distributed control systems, defining concepts and models so that software in the form of function blocks can be interconnected to define the behavior of a distributed control system. This book provides a concise yet thorough introduction to the main concepts and models defined in the IEC 61499 standard and particularly the use of function blocks. Incorporating industrially relevant examples to show how these can be applied, the book is ideal as a user-guide for the application of the standard for modelling distributed systems. It is also, particularly relevant to those working in industrial control, software engineering, mechatronics and manufacturing systems.

SICICA'97 was the third symposium in the series (1992, Malaga - Spain; 1994, Budapest - Hungary). It was sponsored by the Technical Committee on Components and Instruments and was organized by the Laboratoire d'Automatique et de MicroInformatique Industrielle, Université de Savoie, on behalf of AFCET, the National Member Organization. The symposium was held in the Impérial Palace Congress Center, Annecy. 178 papers were submitted as draft papers and reviewed by the International Program Committee members who selected 117 papers coming from 25 countries. The topics covered include: the evolution of electronic components, especially mircocontrollers and digital signal processors which can be used for the implementation of instruments where intelligence is located in the processing; problems and solutions using fieldbuses for the control of automated processes; and the principal phases in the industrialisation of microsystems which associate micromechanics and microelectronics. The Symposium showed the vitality of the research in the field of intelligent instruments and components.
This work provides users and designers of industrial control and monitoring systems with an easy-to-use, yet effective, method to configure, design, and validate human-machine interfaces.
Author: Jean-Yves Fiset
Users and designers of industrial control and monitoring systems (e.g., distributed control, supervisory control and data acquisition, and stand-alone) will benefit from this book's easy-to-useÃ‚--yet effectiveÃ‚--method on how to configure, design, and validate human-machine interfaces (HMIs). It discusses the overall HMI design process and how that process relates to system design. It also details design methods, principles and rules for individuals or groups of displays, as well as the integration of software-based and hardwired HMIs. This book will help guide you on the design of HMIs for other, less common, yet important, components, such as expert systems and other electronically-displayed operating procedures. Using the knowledge contained in this book, you can determine how to configure or design a whole new set of displays for a system or how to enhance specific elements of an existing or planned HMI.
This book offers an introduction to piezoelectric shells and distributed sensing, energy harvesting and control applications.

This book offers an introduction to piezoelectric shells and distributed sensing, energy harvesting and control applications. It familiarizes readers with a generic approach of piezoelectric shells and fundamental electromechanics of distributed piezoelectric sensors, energy harvesters and actuators applied to shell structures. The book is divided into two major parts, the first of which focuses on piezoelectric shell continua, while the second examines distributing sensing, energy harvesting and control of elastic continua, e.g., shells and plates. The exploitation of new, advanced multifunctional smart structures and structronic systems has been one of the mainstream research and development activities over the years. In the search for innovative structronics technologies, piezoelectric materials have proved to be very versatile in both sensor and actuator applications. Consequently, the piezoelectric technology has been applied to a broad range of practical applications, from small-scale nano- and micro-sensors/actuators to large-scale airplane and space structures and systems. The book provides practicing engineers and researchers with an introduction to advanced piezoelectric shell theories and distributed sensor/energy harvester/actuator technologies in the context of structural identification, energy harvesting and precision control. The book can also be used as a textbook for graduate students. This second edition contains substantial new materials, especially energy harvesting and experimental components, and has been updated and corrected for a new generation of readers.

Optimal Design of Distributed Control and Embedded Systems focuses on the design of special control and scheduling algorithms based on system structural properties as well as on analysis of the influence of induced time-delay on systems performances. It treats the optimal design of distributed and embedded control systems (DCESs) with respect to communication and calculation-resource constraints, quantization aspects, and potential time-delays induced by the associated communication and calculation model. Particular emphasis is put on optimal control signal scheduling based on the system state. In order to render this complex optimization problem feasible in real time, a time decomposition is based on periodicity induced by the static scheduling is operated. The authors present a co-design approach which subsumes the synthesis of the optimal control laws and the generation of an optimal schedule of control signals on real-time networks as well as the execution of control tasks on a single processor. The authors also operate a control structure modification or a control switching based on a thorough analysis of the influence of the induced time-delay system influence on stability and system performance in order to optimize DCES performance in case of calculation and communication resource limitations. Although the richness and variety of classes of DCES preclude a completely comprehensive treatment or a single “best” method of approaching them all, this co-design approach has the best chance of rendering this problem feasible and finding the optimal or some sub-optimal solution. The text is rounded out with references to such applications as car suspension and unmanned vehicles. Optimal Design of Distributed Control and Embedded Systems will be of most interest to academic researchers working on the mathematical theory of DCES but the wide range of environments in which they are used also promotes the relevance of the text for control practitioners working in the avionics, automotive, energy-production, space exploration and many other industries.
