Dr. Zhu worked in the automotive industry for 15 years before he joined MSU as a faculty member. Drawing on his rich industrial background he believes that this brief will bridge the gap between the academic theory of LPV control and industrial gain-scheduling control applications. The key issue for industrial application of LPV control is how to select design gains to meet the desired performance and control gains. For example, PI (proportional and integral) control gains can be tuned manually since only two control parameters need to be tuned; while for LPV control, both estimation and control gains need to be designed which make them impossible to be tuned manually. The weight selection scheme discussed in this book provides a systematic approach for LPV gain tuning in practical engineering applications. Dr. Zhu teaches "Robust Control" for graduate students at Michigan State University. He believes that this brief can be used as supplemental material for mixed H2 and H-infinity control. It can also be used as a text book for advanced topics in control classes for those students who complete the robust control class.
Dr. Choi has been working on model set estimation for robust controller design; robust track-following controller design in hard disk drives (HHDs); and LPV modeling and controller synthesis for energy-efficient automotive engine systems and mobile robotic sensors based on LMI optimization. In his experience, the LPV modeling and control approach plays an important role in addressing challenging control problems in many applications ranging from HHDs and engine control to unmanned robotic vehicles. He also teaches graduate-level control systems courses such as ‘Linear Systems and Control’, and ‘Nonlinear Systems and Control’ at Michigan State University.
