    Extremum Seeking-Based Obstacle Avoidance: Novel Analytical and Experimental Trajectory Optimization of a 7-DOF Baxter Robot Carried out by Mostafa Bagheri, PhD Candidate

    Model-Based Adaptive Control of an Unknown Mass Avoiding Obstacle

    Welcome to Dynamic Systems and Control Laboratory (DSCL)! The lab focus is on a wide range of research efforts which include, but are not limited to, Nonlinear Modeling, Dynamic Analysis, Optimization (design, operation, and control), and Centralized/Decentralized Control of Smart Flow Distribution Network, Robots, Magnetic Bearings, and Large-Scale Systems. Multidisciplinary systems have received much attention with respect to their complex physics leading us to develop efficient numerical and analytical tools along with experimental work to translate the ambiguous behaviors of these systems to understandable mathematical language.

    Interconnected Chaotic & Hyperchaotic Dynamics of Two Butterfly Valves Operating in Series: Two Positive Lyapunov Exponents Indicate the Hyperchaos

    Decentralized Vs. Centralized Adaptive Control of Hyperchaotic Smart Valves Network (Two Agents):

    An advanced practice we utilize in analyzing any complex system. Several powerful tools we use in deriving Nonlinear, Scalable, and Coupled dynamic models of electromechanical networks. Comprehensive stability analysis is then carried out to guarantee the stable performance of each agent and subsequently the whole system. Any theoretical approach needs an experimental validation to refine the model developed to be used in the dynamic analysis, and optimization/control schemes.
