In networked and embedded control systems, communication and computation
resources are often shared, thereby limiting closed-loop performance. In particular, the implicit
assumption traditionally made in control design about the processor being able to execute the
desired control algorithm at any time and using perfect information, may break down. In the present
talk, we will study an intuitive method for event-based single-loop control of nonlinear systems
when communication resources and also processing availability for control are random.
Daniel Quevedo was born in Lima, Peru, and brought up in Germany and Chile. In 2001 he moved to Australia to pursue postgraduate studies at the University of Newcastle and was conferred the PhD degree in 2005. In 2008 he was awarded a five-year Australian Research Fellowship, which facilitated research on networked control systems. Since 2013 he has been leading an ABB research project on modular energy systems. Earlier this year, Prof. Quevedo moved back to Germany to take up a new role as Chair of Automatic Control at The University of Paderborn.
