报告题目：Nonlinear Disturbance Observer Design for Input- output representation
Nonlinear disturbance observer techniques have been developed and found a wide range of applications in last two decades. However, they require all the states are available. This talk presents a new framework of developing a nonlinear disturbance observer for nonlinear systems with an input-output representation. Inverse simulation techniques are identified to provide a promising approach. Particularly a new nonlinear disturbance observer was developed using feedback based inverse simulation.
Wen-Hua Chen holds Professor in autonomous vehicles in the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering at Loughborough University, where he is also heading the Controls and Reliability Research Group. Before joining Loughborough in 2000 as Lecturer in Flight Control, Dr. Chen was a Research Fellow and then a Lecturer in Control Engineering in the Centre for Systems and Control at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. Dr Chen has a considerable experience in advanced control and signal processing and their applications in aerospace and automotive engineering. In the last 12 years, he has been spending most of his effort in developing autonomous system technologies and their applications in agriculture, environment and defence. Prof Chen is a Chartered Engineer, and a Fellow of IEEE, the Institute of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, UK. He has published about 250 papers with about a total of 10,000 citations.
