    Project Details


    SESDIP concerns analysis and design of control systems, and the objective is to develop tools and methodologies for complex industrial processes. SESDIP focuses on structure, that is methodologies that exploit causal relations underlying the models. Our contribution to the project is qualitative analyses based on structure rather than numbers by means of directed graphs (digraphs). Models on matrix form (state space equations) can be analysed structurally with respect to controllability, observability, decomposability, disturbance rejection, input/output decoupling, pole assignability, and decentralized control. The graph approach is relatively new, but there are other research groups around the world. The Danish contribution is towards programming and applications rather than original theory. The project is under the EU programme Esprit Basic Research (contract no 8924).
