Unformatted text preview: APPLYING AND ANALYZING ROBUST MODERN CONTROL ON UNCERTAIN HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS A thesis presented to the faculty of the Graduate School University of Missouri-Columbia In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Degree Master of Science By BRIAN BAX Dr. Roger Fales, Thesis Supervisor May 2006 The undersigned, appointed by the dean of the Graduate School, have examined the project entitled APPLYING AND ANALYZING ROBUST MODERN CONTROL ON UNCERTAIN HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS Presented by Brian Bax a candidate for the degree of Masters of Science and hereby certify that in their opinion it is worthy of acceptance. Dr. Roger Fales, Assistant Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Dr. Craig Kluever, Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Dr. Steven Borgelt, Associate Professor, Biological Engineering ii ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Though not always the easiest endeavor, attending graduate school at the University of Missouri-Columbia has been an adventure. And like all adventures, there has been joy, excitement, discovery and many times when the phrase I dont know if Im going to make it out alive has been uttered. It would have never been possible without the help and guidance given to me by friends and along the way. I am especially thankful to my academic advisor, Dr. Roger Fales for his patience, aid and faith in me throughout my graduate experience. Had Dr. Fales not offered me the support and help he has over the past year and a half, none of this would have been possible. I am also thankful for Dr. Kluever who has guided me through many dynamics and control classes throughout my tenure at the university as both an undergraduate and graduate and for agreeing to serve on my thesis committee. I express my thanks to Dr. Borgelt for his willingness to find the time to read my thesis and participate on my thesis committee. I thank Dr. Manring for sparking my interest in hydraulics and giving me the opportunity to do undergraduate research under him which inevitably caused me to attend graduate school. I am also thankful for my colleague Patrick Dean for his hard work and support on this research project. Last, but certainly not least, Id like to thank my parents, Fred and Brenda, my sister, Megan, my friends and family for their endless love and support in all things in life both near and far to academia. iii TABLE OF CONTENTS Acknowledgements............................................................................................................. ii List of Figures .................................................................................................................... vi List of Tables ................................................................................................................... viii Nomenclature..................................................................................................................... ix Abstract ............................................................................................................................... x Abstract ....
