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.

Abstract

This paper presents a new algorithm designed to control the shape of the output probability density function (PDF) of singular systems subjected to non-Gaussian input. The aim is to select a control input uk such that the output PDF is made as close as possible to a given PDF. Based on the B-spline neural network approximation of the output PDF, the control algorithm is formulated by extending the developed PDF control strategies of non-singular systems to singular systems. It has been shown that under certain conditions the stability of the closed-loop system can be guaranteed. Simulation examples are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed control algorithm
