Integrated controller and topology optimization for precision motion systems

The design of high-performance mechatronic systems is very challenging, as it requires delicate balancing of system dynamics, the controller, and their closed-loop interaction. Topology optimization provides an automated way to obtain structural designs with superior mechanical properties. Our approach is to combine topology optimization with the tuning of control parameters for an integrated optimization. The closed-loop behavior (bandwidth, stability, and disturbance rejection properties) of the combined system can thus be optimized in an integrated way, leading to superior system performance compared to a sequential optimization approach.

The speaker will be: Arnoud Delissen

We will start at 12:02pm on November 7 2022
