Biography

 

Dr. Shtessel has been working on a wide variety of research topics encompassing Nonlinear Nonminimum Phase Output Tracking on Sliding Modes with Application to Flight and Space Vehicle Control. Breakthrough is achieved in nonminimum phase output tracking on traditional and higher order sliding modes in causal systems. New results on a higher order sliding mode (HOSM) observer design for nonminimum phase nonlinear systems have been achieved as well. Novel adaptive sliding mode control algorithms that allow not overestimating the sliding mode control gains in systems with bounded disturbances and unknown bounds have been developed. The traditional and HOSM control and observation techniques have been used for designing controllers and observers: (a) For attitude tracking and bending mode control of a launch vehicle. (b) For damaged aircraft (both square and tailless configurations) reconfigurable anti-windup control. (c) In integrated autopilot/guidance system for hit-to-kill missile interceptors. (d) For output tracking in multiple-modular nonminimum phase boost and buck-boost DC-DC electric power converters. (e) For robust control of tight formations of unmanned air vehicles. (f) For the robust feedback stabilization of the blood glucose concentration level in diabetic patients. (g) For preserving a connectivity in mobile communication, data-gathering networks that consist of uncontrolled and controlled agents.
