Logo of ACT The research in linear control theory has a long tradition in the Institute. During the 1960s researchers of the Institute made considerable developments in both transfer-function and state-space methods. During the 1970s and the 1980s, the members of the Department achieved significant results, which launched an entirely new area of research worldwide. Among these are the parametrization of all controllers stabilizing a given plant (known as the Youla-Kučera parametrization) and the design of control systems via polynomial equations. Starting the 1990s, the research activities of the department ranged from robust control to nonlinear systems.

Applied research in the department focuses on numerical methods for control-system simulation and design, which yields various original software packages for control and simulation. Furthemore, Department investigates the problems in robotic walking, including their software and hardware implementations

The theoretical research currently prevails in the Department and it is focused on the control systems analysis, feedback control design and general dynamical systems theory. The most important areas are as follows:

  • Analysis and robust control design of linear large scale and spatially distributed systems.
  • Theoretical and numerical methods for analysis and design of controlled systems, including chaotic systems.
  • Analysis and design of nonlinear control systems using properties of their invariant manifolds.
  • Topological dynamics and dynamical systems on surfaces and manifolds.
  • Dynamical systems on complex networks of various type.

Duration: 2019 - 2021
The aim of the project is to find new procedures and methods that allow the efficient synchronization and the decentralized control of complex networks, especially the elimination of some influences, for example, the time delays, quantization, change of the behavior of nodes, loss of connection, etc.
Duration: 2019 - 2021
The project deals with design of novel methods for control of large-scale and multi-agent systems in presence of nonlinearities, quantizations and time delay, with a focus on systems controlled by communication networks. A special attention is paid to systems composed of identical subsystems.
Duration: 2017 - 2019
Project is devoted to the research of the novel methods of the design of underactuated walking for mechanical walking-like systems using the recently introduced methodology based on the so-called collocated virtual holonomic constraints.
Duration: 2013 - 2016
Project deals with novel advanced methods for global analysis and control design for decomposed strongly nonlinear state space dynamical models with complex interactions of their components. Focus will be made on multivalued uncertain dynamical systems, especially the multivalued systems class that might be called as the "systems of systems".
