However, during operation, the crane generates unwanted payload vibration, causing difficulties in operation and safety at work. Especially with double-pendulum cranes, this is even more serious. This paper proposed ADRC and Input Shaping combination controller in controlling trolley position and suppressing payload vibration. The Equal Shaping-Time and Magnitude (ETMn) is presented for comparison with traditional Input Shaping method. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed method.</p> Tan Minh Nguyen, Trong Hieu Do, Minh Duc Duong Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Simulation Studies and Control of Membrane Vibration in Air Sampling Pumps <p>The manuscript presents numerical results of the vibrations of the membrane of a low-power sampling pump for quality assurance of air around industrial parks. We consider a three-dimensional membrane undergoing the influences of its materials and vibration amplitudes. Four materials are used to investigate with the membrane’s amplitude varied in the range of 2-8 mm. The results provide an optimal option for the selected pump. Moreover, we also introduce a PID controller for this pump.</p> Bui Dang Thanh, Khánh Dương Trần, Quang Địch Nguyễn, Văn Trường Vũ Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Design and Development of Ultra-wideband Antennas for Wireless Transceivers in Industrial Environments <p class="AbstractBody">In this paper, an ultra-wideband transceiver antenna system consisting of a TEM horn antenna for receiver and a triangle monopole antenna for transiver, has been studied and fabricated. These antennas is intergrated in circuit of a UWB sensor networks, applicable to wireless communication systems using ultra-wideband technology in industrial environments with special operating conditions. Simulation and measurement results have shown that the designs meet the requirements of the system.

The paper designed a system to perform adjusting motor speed sensor-less based on measured current, axial position and voltage reference components. The electromotive force (back-EMF) generated in the stator is estimated by a Sliding mode observer. The angular position and velocity rotor is calculated through the <em>α-β</em> com-ponents of the back-EMF. An improved phase-locked loop to correct the estimated angular position to exactly follow the true value. The motor drive is built in a vector control structure based on field-oriented control. The simulation results show that the proposed phase-locked loop-coupled observer is fully capable of meeting system control requirements in the medium speed range and above.</p> Ngo Manh Tung, Pham Quang Dang, Nguyen Huy Phuong, Nguyen Quang Dich, Le Duc Thinh, Hoang Duc Chinh, Nguyen Tung Lam Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Switching Control in the Dynamic Wireless Charging System for Electric Vehicles <p class="AbstractBody">To reduce magnetic field radiation and power loss in the dynamic wireless charging system for electric vehicles, normally the power is not supplied to the entire transmission lane, but only to the transmission segments where the electric vehicle passes. This paper proposes a new method for switching control of transmission lane segments according to the electric vehicle position. The proposed method does not need to use additional sensors, cameras, or other devices to recognize the electric vehicle position, but simply measures the current on the coils below the transmission lane. In addition, the switching control position had chosen so that the power pulsation is minimal. Research results have shown the switching order of the modules in the transmission lane, electric vehicle position is recognized accurately, the maximum power pulse rate is 8.3%.</p> Diep Nguyen Thi, Trung Nguyen Kien Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Polarization-Insensitive 2.45 GHz Rectenna Using Hybrid Coupler for Wi-Fi Energy Harvesting Application <p class="AbstractBody">A polarization-insensitive dual-polarized rectenna with a hybrid coupler strategy for Wi-Fi energy harvesting applications is proposed in this paper. With a dual-polarized antenna, the incident wave can be received and divided into the horizontally and vertically polarized components, which are equally redistributed by a hybrid coupler. The power equally delivered to the two rectifiers is independent of the incident wave’s polarization. By the equal power routing similarly, two rectifiers are designed and analyzed. In the simulation, the maximum efficiency of 58.15% has been measured with a 600 Ω load at 2.45 GHz.</p> Anh Dat Phan, Minh Thuy Le, Nguyen Quoc Cuong Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Improved Predictive Control for Induction Motor Drives Fed by Cascaded H-bridge Multilevel Inverters <p>The cascaded H-bridge multi-level inverter (CHB) is an effective solution for three-phase induction motors (IM) because the voltage has multiple levels resulting in much reduced voltage growth per winding dv/dt, low voltage harmonics. Previous studies have used model predictive control (MPC) for CHB inverters. The predictive control algorithms of traditional finite control set MPC (FCS-MPC) often have steady-state errors when operating at low sampling frequency or inappropriate parameters in the prediction model, by which, the existance of system model deviation leads to the static error. Therefore, this paper proposes a method to build a new current prediction equation with an integral component for the purpose of compensating for model error. This alternative is tested with a cascaded H-bridge multilevel inverter system for IM. The simulation results show that this improved method has eliminated the static error of the motor current on the rotational coordinate system dq, but still ensures the dynamic characteristics of the transmission system and the optimization objectives of switching and common-mode voltage.</p> Bao Binh Pho, Huu Phuc Nguyen, Trong Minh Tran, Hoang Phuong Vu Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Nonlinear Control of A 3-DOF Robotic Arm Driven by Electro-pneumatic Servo Systems <p class="p1">The paper proposes an effective control approach to a 3-DOF serial robotic arm actuated by electro-pneumatic servo systems (EPSS). The robot control problem is divided into robot dynamics and pneumatic actuators sub-systems, and the control is subsequently elaborated for each sub-system. The challenging task arises when dealing with pneumatic systems where system parametric information is very difficult to acquired correctly. Hence, the Lyapunov based control is formulated to derive the control signal in presence of system disturbances and system uncertainties thank to the integrated disturbance observer. The closed-loop system stability is analytically proven through a series of Lyapunov candidate functions. Co-simulations based on Matlab/Multibody and Solidwork are carried out to demonstrate the control validity.</p> Le Duc Thinh, Van Trong Dang, Van Anh Nguyen Thi, Danh Huy Nguyen, Vu Duc Truong, Nguyen Tung Lam Copyright (c) 2022 Measurement, Control, and Automation Mon, 06 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Personal Verification Based on Finger Knuckle Print Pecognition System Using Raspberry Pi <p><span class="fontstyle0">This paper proposes an approach for personal verification based on<br />finger knuckle recognition (FKR) system using Raspberry Pi 4 and<br />Pi camera.

This increases productivity for production systems.<br />But stable control of the robot system is quite difficult due to the non-linearity of the robot model. In this paper, we propose to use the<br />Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy controller to control the robot with 2-DoF, which helps to reduce the complexity of the system model and at the same time<br />ensures the stability of the robot system even when has the effect of disturbance components and improves the trajectory tracking performance.<br />The control algorithm is proven stable by the Lyapunov stability theory combined with the LMI linear matrix inequality. The control rule<br />Parallel Distributed Compensation (PDC) is built by assembling the sub-control rules corresponding to the submodels of the Takagi-Sugeno<br />fuzzy model.
