Control Systems Theory
Modern systems such as hybrid vehicles or large planes are developed by using advanced control technologies. Control systems theory is one of the fundamental mathematical tools for these technologies, and it provides a methodology for designing system dynamics. Then, I am currently performing basic research on several topics in control systems theory, in particular, dependable control of networked large-scale systems, system representation and control strategy based on input-output data, and randomized algorithms for analysis and synthesis of control systems. I am also working on applications of control systems theory, for example, robust control of looper angle for hot strip mills, simulator based design of secondary cooling zone in continuous casting, and failure detection filters for active mass dampers.
