SYSTEMATIC DEVELOPMENT OF CONTROLLERS BASED ON THE PRINCIPLE SOLUTION OF SELF-OPTIMIZING SYSTEMS
The conceivable development of information technology will enable mechatronic systems with inherent partial intelligence. They will be able to learn, to communicate, and to optimize their behavior autonomously in response to environmental changes. These systems are called self-optimizing systems. The development of such systems starts with the conceptual design phase. The result of the conceptual design is the domain-spanning principle solution. On the basis of this principle solution, further design concretization will take place in the technical domains involved. This paper addresses how controller design can be started based on the principle solution of self-optimizing systems. The method is exemplified by a self-optimizing motor drive.
