Dennis Brinkman will give a presentation on his master thesis, entitled:

Knowledge-based Control Systems for Entry Vehicles


Conventional control techniques, such as PID control and LQRs, are commonly used to design the attitude control laws for entry vehicles. However, in the non-aerospace industry, expert or knowledge-based control methodologies, such as neural networks, fuzzy logic, and model predictive control, are commonly applied to improve to performance of the conventional control techniques. Numerical simulations were performed to study if expert control systems can similarly improve the control performance when applied to the attitude control of an entry vehicle. It was found that simple implementations of the expert control systems performed similarly to well-tuned conventional control systems.

It is with great pleasure that I invite you all to attend this presentation. The Colloquium will be held as follows:
