For many plants there exists no suitable process model.
Designing a controller is then very time consuming or
results in a complex controller. This is often not
justified, especially if the main goal is to keep certain
values within bounds. This goal can be achieved
with a lambda-tracking controller, a very simple
controller that nevertheless guarantees stability and is
robust with respect to plant uncertainty.
In this presentation an introduction and overview
over the field of adaptive lambda-tracking will
be given. Applications in anaestesia will be discussed.
Eric Bullinger graduated from ETH Zürich with a diploma in
electrotechnical engineering in 1995. From October 1995 to September
1999 he has been a research and teaching assistant at the Automatic
Control Laboratory, ETH Zürich; and since October 1995 a Ph.D. student
at the Department of Electrical Engineering at ETH Zürich. He was
president of the Assistants' Association of the ETH Zürich, AVETH,
in 1999, and is presently (since October 1999) a research and teaching
assistant at the Institute for Systems Theory in Engineering at the
University of Stuttgart.
