Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

When PID controllers receive the sensor information or transmit its outputs through a communication network, its parameters are difficult to tune using classical PID tuning methods. This is due to stochastic delays introduced by the network in the feedback loop. This paper proposes a design method to compensate the effects of this delay using a constrained optimization to find the PID parameters. The design is based on a polytopic description of the system, which can be formulated using a pdf distribution of the delay. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the performance of the proposed method.
