Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

The development of fuzzy internal model control (FIMC) is analogous to that of linear IMC. At the core of the FIMC is the novel crisp consequent fuzzy relational model (ccFRM). In this paper, we compare the behaviour of FIMC to IMC on a variety of linear systems. The comparison shows that, although FIMC behaves well when used with SISO systems, it suffers severe difficulties in dealing with MIMO systems with dead-times. A possible solution to this, again from analogy with linear IMC, is to approximate the model inverse with a model predictive controller.
