Redundancy relations and robust failure detection( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All failure detection methods are based on the use of redundancy, that is on (possible dynamic) relations among the measured variables. Consequently the robustness of the failure detection process depends to a great degree on the reliability of the redundancy relations given the inevitable presence of model uncertainties. This paper addresses the problem of determining redundancy relations which are optimally robust in a sense which includes the major issues of importance in practical failure detection and which provides a significant amount of intuition concerning the geometry of robust failure detection.

Detection of abrupt changes in dynamic systems by Alan S Willsky( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents some of the basic ideas associated with the detection of abrupt changes in dynamic systems. The author's presentation focuses on two classes of methods -- multiple filter-based techniques and residual-based methods -- and in far more detail on the multiple model and generalized likelihood ratio methods. Issues such as the effect of unknown onset time on algorithm complexity and structure and robustness to model uncertainty are discussed. (Author)

Annual technical report ... on analysis, estimation and control for perturbed and singular systems and for systems subject to discrete events by Alan S Willsky( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report we summarize our accomplishments in the research program supported by Grant AFOSR-88-0032 over the period from October 1, 1987 to September 30, 1991. The basic scope of this program is the analysis, estimation, and control of complex systems with particular emphasis on (a) multiresolution modeling and signal processing; (b) the investigation of theoretical questions related to singular systems; and (c) the analysis of complex systems subject to or characterized by sequences of discrete events. These three topics are described in the next three sections of this report. A full list of publications supported by Grant AFOSR-88-0032 is also included

Investigations of computer-aided document search strategies by Richard S Marcus( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Controlled experiments were conducted with an enhanced experimental intermediary system, conit (COnnector for Networked Information Transfer), to test how effective such a system could be in assisting end users in online searching of medical and biomedical literature. A total of 16 end users, none of whom had previously operated conit or any of the four bibliographic retrieval systems used in the study, performed searches on 20 different topics with no assistance other than that provided by conit itself (except to recover from machine and software problems). The same topics were then searched by human expert intermediaries (librarians) with the end users present. Sometimes conit and sometimes the human expert were clearly superior in terms of such parameters as recall and search time. In general, however, end users searching alone with conit achieved somewhat higher online recall at the expense of longer session times. It was concluded that advanced experimental intermediary techniques are capable of providing search assistance whose effectiveness at least approximates that of human intermediaries in some contexts. Details of the enhanced conit system and its costs are also discussed, as well as the possibilities for even more advanced intermediary systems, including those which perform automatic database selection and simulate human experts. A 60-item bibliography is provided. (Author/ESR)
Studies in hybrid systems : modeling, analysis, and control by Michael Stephen Branicky( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex systems typically possess a hierarchical structure, characterized by continuous-variable dynamics at the lowest level and logical decision-making at the highest. Virtually all control systems today perform computer-coded checks and issue logical as well as continuous-variable control commands. Such are 'hybrid' systems. Traditionally, the hybrid nature of these systems is suppressed by converting them into either purely discrete or continuous entities. Motivated by real-world problems, we introduce 'hybrid systems' as interacting collections of dynamical systems, evolving on continuous-variable state spaces, and subject to continuous controls and discrete phenomena. We identify the discrete phenomena that arise in hybrid systems and review previously proposed models. We propose a hybrid control model, coupling differential equations and automata, that encompasses them. Our unified model is natural for posing and solving hybrid analysis and control problems. We discuss topological issues that arise in hybrid systems analysis. Then we compare the computational capabilities of analog, digital, and hybrid machines by proposing intuitive notions of analog machines simulating digital ones. We show that simple continuous systems possess the power of universal computation. Hybrid systems have further simulation capabilities. For instance, we settle the famous asynchronous arbiter problem in both continuous and hybrid settings. Further, we develop analysis tools for limit cycle existence, perturbation robustness, and stability. We analyze a hybrid control system, typically used in aircraft, that logically switches between two conventional controllers. Stability of such systems has previously only been tested using extensive simulation; we prove global asymptotic stability for a realistic set of cases. Our tools demonstrate robustness of this stability with respect
