ECE Colloquium: Yongsoon Eun (DGIST) – “Noise Induced Tracking Loss in Systems with PI Controller and Anti-windup”

November 24, 2015 / 16:00

Speaker : Yongsoon Eun

Abstract:

This seminar presents a recently discovered phenomenon that takes place in feedback systems with saturating actuators, proportional-integral control, and anti-windup. Namely, in such systems, measurement noise induces steady state error in step tracking, which is incompatible with the standard error coefficients. We quantify this phenomenon using stochastic averaging theory and show that the noise induced loss of tracking occurs only if anti-windup is present. Moreover, we show that this phenomenon takes place with any types of anti-windup known from the literature. An indicator that predicts this phenomenon is derived, and a rule-of-thumb, based on this indicator, is formulated. Illustrations with a digital printing device as well as thermal control in real-time computing systems are provided.
