It is applied to the Research Council of Norway for a Ph.D. project with the title ?Input and state constraint handling in nonlinear and adaptive backstepping control design?.
The main objective is to develop a theoretically well-founded design approach for constrained nonlinear and adaptive control based on Control Lyapunov Function design methods such as backstepping. Moreover, the project will demonstrate the practical applicability of such real-time algorithms in an experimental case study on an ele ctro-pneumatic clutch actuator in collaboration with Kongsberg Automotive.
We apply for a Ph.D. grant for a period of 3 years. The project is located at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics at NTNU, Trondheim.
