Ph.D. in Information Technology: Belloli and Caporale Final Dissertations DEIB - Seminar Room March 25th, 2015 First Ph.D. presentation and discussion: Dr. Damiano BELLOLI – XXVI Cycle Analysis and Control of Mechatronic Actuation Systems in Industrial Applications Supervisor: Prof. Sergio Savaresi Abstract: The widespread of the actuation systems in the industrial applications and the recent introduction of the electronic components and new generation of devices, called mechatronic actuators, lead to necessity of more deep studies and analysis of the dynamical behavior and control strategies for such actuators. In this research theme, the development of suitable models, estimation algorithms and control strategies for different technologies of mechatronic actuators are detailed. In addition, the methodologies analyzed are applied to specific industrial environments, such as self-balancing manipulators and rolling mills for pipe production. Second Ph.D. presentation and discussion: Dr. Danilo CAPORALE – XXVII Cycle Optimal/Robust control for anti-slip/skid devices in railway applications Supervisor: Prof. Patrizio Colaneri Abstract: Control systems for wheel axle control of railway vehicles are the main focus of this work. we analyze the problem from two points of view: the single axle speed control and the whole train coordinated control. In both of them we propose innovative control algorithms to enhance the performance of current wheel slip protection devices exploiting advantages offered from modern control theory. Results are theoretically validated and simulation experiments are given.
