Jae Lew (Eaton Corporation)
This presentation will discuss the application of control theory to various mechanical systems that Dr. Lew has developed/led under government and industry R&D programs. He intends to share his experience and view on how mathematics plays an important role in the area of control engineering. His topics and examples will include (1) Structural vibration control of the long-reach robotic arm for nuclear waste underground storage tanks; (2) Sea basing: Ship-to-ship cargo/vehicles transfer under relative motion; (3) Vehicle stability control - HUMVEE rollover mitigation; and (4) Electro-hydraulic actuator control system.
