Notice of Academic Report " Fractional Order Motion Controls "

Sourse: College of Water Resources and Architectural Engineering  Date:2017-07-18

Title: Fractional Order Motion Controls

Abstract: This seminar is based on a recent research monograph “Fractional Order Motion Controls” (Wiley,2013) There is an increasing interest in fractional order dynamic systems and  controls  in  recent research literature,  not  only  because  of  their  novelty  but  also  due  to  their  practical  values. Fractional calculus is a generalization of calculus from integer order to fractional order and the controller designs developed based on fractional calculus has a greater opportunity to provide more accurate models and superior control performances. In this workshop, theoretical concepts on fractional order motion controls will be presented. Real world implementations such as UAV flight control and hard disk drive servo control will be demonstrated to illustrate its practical importance.
Location: College of Water Resources and Architectural Engineering building 208, Northwest A&F University,

Time: 15:30 p.m. on July 19, 2017

Speaker:Prof. Yangquan Chen

Brief introduction to the speaker:

Professor YangQuan Chen joined University of California, Merced in summer 2012 with a vision to promote the wide-spread use of low cost data-drones in precision agriculture and environmental monitoring. From 2000 to 2012, he was with Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept. of Utah State University. His unmanned aerial systems (UAS) team at UC Merced has been pursuing research excellence in innovative use of data-drones for crop, water, soil, dust, air, and fire etc. Dr. Chen received Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University Singapore in 1998. His current areas of research interest include: applied fractional calculus in controls, signal processing and energy informatics; distributed measurement and distributed control of distributed parameter systems using mobile actuator and sensor networks; mechatronics; multi-UAV based cooperative multi-spectral “personal remote sensing” for precision agriculture and environmental monitoring. He has been an Associate Editor for Acta Montanistica Slovaca, IFAC journals of Mechatronics and Control Engineering Practice, Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, IET Control Theory and Applications, ISA Transactions and Cogent Engineering (Systems and Control).   He also serves as the Topic-Editor-in-Chief in “Field Robotics” for International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems (IJARS), a Senior Editor for International Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems, and an associate editor for Journal of Intelligent Service Robotics.  He was an associate editor for ASME Journal of Dynamical Systems, Measurement and Control (2009-2015),IEEE Transactions of Control Systems Technology,and a Founding Associate Editor for Unmanned Systems (2013-2015). Dr. Chen is a member of ASPRS, AUVSI, AMA, IEEE, ASME, AIAA, and ASEE.He serves as the co-chair for IEEE RAS TC on Aerial Robotics and UAV, IEEE UAS CTAP, and Program Co-chair for ICUAS 2016, Washington, DC, and General Co-Chair for ICUAS 2017, Miami, FL.
