D.B. Robinson Distinguished Lecture: "The Impact of Theory on Control Practice"


M. Morari

Faculty of Engineering, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, 12 April

This lecture series is a combination of exemplary scholarship and industrial relevance befitting of Dr. Donald Baker Robinson, a distinguished scholar and businessperson. Each year, the D.B. Robinson Distinguished Speaker Series features seven internationally-renowned inspiring engineers and scientists.

Twenty years ago I delivered a plenary lecture with the same title at the American Control Conference in Boston. I will go back and reflect on the successes and failures, on what we have learned and which problems remain open. The focus will be on robust and constrained control and the real time implementation of control algorithms. I will comment on the progress we have made on the control of hybrid systems and how our vastly more powerful computational resources have affected the design tools we have at our disposal. Throughout the lecture, industrial examples from the automotive and power electronics domains and the industrial energy sector will illustrate the arguments.
