Lunch Lecture April hosted by Sioux
Spatial Gaussian process repetitive control for suppressing spatial disturbances in an industrial substrate carrier.
Repetitive control (RC) can perfectly attenuate time-domain periodic disturbances. In practice, disturbances are often position-domain periodic, e.g., cogging in a motor or an eccentric roller that rotates with a varying velocity, see Figure 1. Traditional RC cannot compensate for these disturbances and may even amplify them.

A spatial RC approach is developed that compensates for disturbances that are spatially periodic. A non-parametric position-domain buffer consisting of a Gaussian Process (GP) is employed in RC, see Figure 3. The method is successfully applied to a substrate carrier system (Figure 2) where it compensates for roller imperfections that induce spatially periodic disturbances.
