    Control a Double Inverted Pendulum Using Active Learning Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghomi Rostami, Mohammad (Author) ; Bagheri Shouraki, Saeid (Supervisor)
    There are lots of researches performed to investigate human being learning and try to model it. But, in case of huge complexity of its structure and function, almost none of so-far learning algorithms can model human learning process and, indeed, performance of human brain in real problems is much more than these algorithms. Moreover, in many cases, human is not aware or informed about internal structure or mathematical model of the present system he is working on; a child learning to walk has no information about his neuromuscular system and his brain slowly learns how to convey his little body by choosing the proper timing of muscle contractions. One of the accomplished researches in order...

    Controlling four legged robots is a complex challenge. The previous works in this field can be divided into two main categories, Analytic method and intelligence method. The analytic method is based on extracting the motion equations of the robot, but in most cases these equations are so complicated, and their implementation is difficult. Another method is intelligence method, which is based on learning algorithms. Despite the improvements in walking robots field, still their walking quality is far from human and animal walking. Researchers believe that this advantage is the result of the learning ability in animals and human. Therefore in this paper the human learning ability is used to...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Boroomandfar, Parviz (Author) ; Manzuri, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor) ; Nazari Shireh Jeini, Ali Asghar (Supervisor)
    The energy consumed by lighting, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (LHVAC) systems have been increasing over the last decades. Thus, improving the efficiency of LHVAC systems has gained the attention of industry and academia. This concern has posed challenges for controlling and optimizing LHVAC systems. The traditional methods, such as on/off and PID approaches, usually involve conditions and parameters that may not hold in practice since LHVAC systems are complex, nonlinear, and dynamic. Also, controllers are one of the important components of a method for its efficiency. This research focuses on controlling LHVAC systems. Fuzzy logic controllers one of the best controller for... 

    A Supervisory Fuzzy Force Control of CNC HEXAGLIDE Robot

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Abedi, Mohsen (Author) ; Alasti, Aria (Supervisor) ; Vossoughi, Gholamreza (Supervisor)
    In this paper, controlling the cutting force of an end-milling process using a supervisory fuzzy controller has been investigated. The proposed control consists of an ordinary fuzzy controller and a fuzzy supervisor. In a machining process, there are several parameters which do not contribute to the force control system directly. Therefore an ordinary fuzzy force controller is suitable when these parameter have only small amount of variations. Since in practice this assumption is not valid, then a supervisory fuzzy controller has been added to the system. The designed fuzzy supervisor, inspects the dynamic behavior of the cutting force, estimates a pre-defined ‘sensitivity’ parameter and...

    Fuzzy-Based Routing in Irregular Mesh Noc

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rezaei Mayahi Nejad, Mehdi (Author) ; Sarbazi Azad, Hamid (Supervisor)
    In past decades, we have seen the rise of integration density in chips making it possible to design a whole system on a single chip. The previously designed interconnection architectures for multiprocessors systems cannot directly be applied in on-chip systems (especially when the number of processor elements increases) since they require a different type of a cost-performance trade-off. This is why the interconnection networks of systems-on-chip (SoC) are such a problem. Network-on-chip (NoC) was being proposed as a scalable and reusable communication platform for SoCs, which makes use of the network model to develop efficient on-chip communication infrastructures. The NoC has a layered and... 

    A Novel Moving Magnetic Levitation Device for 3D Manipulation of Small Objects

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Molavian Jazi, Mehdi (Author) ; Vossoughi, Gholamreza (Supervisor)
    Magnetic levitation is an appropriate solution for noncontact 3D manipulation. Workspace of the previously proposed maglev systems is confined to a relatively small cube, which severely limits the application of this technology. In addition, most of the previously given mechanisms require the design and application of a subsystem in order to unify their magnetic field. In this paper, a moving magnet is proposed which results in a horizontally extendable workspace; moreover, the field unifying section is not needed since one electromagnet only is used. Further, details of the mechanism and finite element based design procedure of the magnet are presented. Dynamic equations of the system...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ashoori Zadeh, Alireza (Author) ; Ranjbar, Ali Mohammad (Supervisor)
    This study presents the application of the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) to reduce the frequency deviation and improve frequency of a power system. This has been done by proposing a wind turbine model and a new fuzzy controller. The fuzzy controller has been suggested to change the speed of the wind turbine rotor and modify the impacts of wind speed fluctuations on the output power. The fuzzy controller parameters are optimized using the genetic algorithm (GA) to achieve the appropriate transient response. A smart controller is combined with fuzzy controller to optimize the usage of wind turbine’s kinetic energy. Furthermore, the DFIG with the proposed controller participates in the...

    Dynamic positioning system is a controller system used to maintain the position and heading of a vessel with no use of anchors, jack ups but only using the propellers installed on the vessel. A vessel has six degrees of freedom, including three rotations and three transfer. In dynamic positioning systems, the vessel is controlled only on the horizontal plane such that its position and heading are controlled according to predetermined values. To achieve this, position and heading of the vessel is determined and the controller system computes the direction and required power of each propeller. Preliminary systems utilized PID controllers. As the control science has advanced, model based... 

    Designing of Gyrover and Controlling it with Fuzzy-pade’ Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Forouhar, Moeen (Author) ; Zohoor, Hassan (Supervisor) ; Sohrabpour, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Gyrover is a kind of robot which can move with only one single wheel. In this robot, all the mechanical and electronics’ systems are placed in the wheel of robot. So the wheel of robot is the boundary which separates the inner equipment of gyrover with outside environment. In this robot, only one wheel is used for moving, so the amount of friction of movement in gyrover robot is less in comparison with two and more wheeled vehicles. Because of this gyrover can move to more domains. Gyrover robot can move both on land and water. Gyrover robot is not intrinsically stable which means that it cannot stand on ground. So for stability of gyrover another dynamic system should be used. The best...
