Faster Run-to-Run Feedforward Control of Electromechanical Switching Devices: a Sensitivity-Based Approach
6 November 2023
Systems and Control
Sensitivity analysis identifies the most influential control parameters
Optimization is focused on the sensitive parameters only
Convergence to optimal control is much faster
Performance is still very high after convergence
Simulations show a 2x speedup in convergence
Faster optimization of electromechanical switch control
This paper presents two new methods to accelerate the optimization of control parameters for electromechanical switches like relays and valves. Both techniques leverage sensitivity analysis to identify the most influential control parameters. By focusing the optimization on only the sensitive parameters, convergence is significantly faster while still achieving high performance. Extensive simulations demonstrate the proposed methods can halve the iterations required for control convergence.
