New Way to Design Controllers

January 2006
InTech;Jan2006, Vol. 53 Issue 1, p12
The article focuses on a thesis made by industrial engineer Marta Barreras Carracedo in January 2006 wherein she created a method of designing controllers based on Quantitative Feedback Theory. Her thesis was aiming to develop a sufficiently simple method that can facilitate its implantation into real industrial processes. The thesis mainly aimed to develop an advanced strategy for the design of controllers of multiple sensor systems and actuators. It also aimed to develop a method for the design of controllers of a robust nature and with a capacity for internal decoupling and rejection of external perturbations.
