PROJECT TITLE :
Constrained Temperature Control of a Solar Furnace
A new constrained control strategy for a solar furnace is proposed during this paper with the goal of attaining a minimum-time transition between two values of the temperature subject to constraints on both the saturation and slew rate level of the method input. In the case of set-point step-shape signals, the strategy basically consists in implementing a (model-primarily based) feedforward control law with most positive and negative velocity phases in order to obtain a minimum-time transition with no overshoot. Within the case of ramp-shape set-point signals (addressing the output slew-rate constraint), the suitable feedforward management law is obtained by additionally inverting the dynamics of the system. Implementation problems are mentioned. Simulation and real experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the methodology.
