Kolloquium Technische Kybernetik im Wintersemester 2017/18

--- Titel: Sliding-Mode Control - From Theory into Practice

Veranstaltungsdatum:  15. Januar 2019 16:00 Uhr

Prof. Martin Horn
Institute of Automation and Control
Graz University of Technology, Austria


Tuesday 2019-01-08 16:00
IST-Seminar-Room 2.255 - Pfaffenwaldring 9 - Campus Stuttgart-Vaihingen



This talk presents selected practical applications of sliding-mode concepts in different fields of engineering demonstrating the efforts of the control group at TU Graz to close gaps between theory and practice. The first part of the talk is dedicated to basic 1-sliding applications in the context of semiconductor and automotive engineering. The second part of the talk focusses on higher order sliding-mode concepts. Beside theoretical aspects some challenging industrial applications will be presented.






Biographical Information


Martin Horn received the PhD in electrical engineering in 1998 and the habilitation in “system dynamics and control” in 2003. In 2008 he was appointed as a full professor of Control and Measurement Systems at the Faculty of Technical Sciences of Klagenfurt University. Since 2014 he is head of the Institute of Automation and Control at Graz University of Technology.

Martin’s main research areas are currently in robust and networked control theory.
