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

The problem of systematically synthesizing supervisory control laws that satisfy eventuality and efficiency requirements for hybrid systems modelled by hybrid automata is considered. Here, the efficiency requirement is specified by weighting the discrete transitions of the system. The optimization of the efficiency requirement is considered in the min-max sense due to the existence of disturbance inputs. Adopting a game theoretic approach, the high priority eventuality requirement is considered first and the class of controls, in which the low priority efficiency requirement should be optimized, is obtained. Then, a dynamic programming algorithm, which determines the value function of the optimization problem, is derived. A synthesis problem on a simplified batch process plant is considered to illustrate a potential application of the approach.
