Minimum Energy Control of Fractional Positive Electrical Circuits

Professor Tadeusz Kaczorek (Fellow IEEE)
Warsaw University of Technology


Abstract: The talk will consist of two parts. In the first part the minimum energy control of standard positive electrical circuits will be discussed and in the second part the similar problem for fractional positive electrical circuits. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the positivity and reachability of electrical circuits composed of resistors, coils and capacitors will be established. The minimum energy control problem for the standard and fractional positive electrical circuits will be formulated and solved. Procedures for computation of the optimal inputs and minimal values of the performance indeces will be given and illustrated by examples of electrical circuits.

Short biography: Prof. Tadeusz Kaczorek graduated from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering Warsaw University of Technology in 1956, where in 1962 he defended his doctoral thesis. In 1964, he received a postdoctoral degree. In the years 1965-1970 he was head of the Department of Electronics and Automation, 1969-1970, and Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering University of Warsaw. In the years 1970-1973 Vice-Rector of the Technical University of Warsaw in the years 1970-1981 the director of the Institute of Control and Industrial Electronics Warsaw University of Technology. He was also head of the Department of Control of the above Institute. In 1971 he received the title of Professor and Associate Professor of Warsaw University of Technology. In 1974 he received the title of professor of Warsaw University of Technology. In 1987-1988 he was chairman of the Committee for Automation and Robotics. Since 1986, corresponding member, and since 1998 member of the Polish Academy of Sciences. In 1988-1991 he was Head of the Scientific Academy in Rome. For many years a member of the Foundation for Polish Science. From June 1999 ordinary member of the Academy of Engineering. He is currently a professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Bialystok and Warsaw University of Technology. Since 1991 he is a member, and now chairman of the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles (Vice-President in 2003-2006). In 2012 he was chairman of the Presidium of the Scientific Committee of the conference devoted to research crash of the Polish Tu-154 in Smolensk methods of science.

Scientific achievements
His research interests relate to automation, control theory and electrical engineering, including analysis and synthesis of circuits and systems with parameters determined and random polynomial methods for the synthesis of control systems and singular systems. Author of 20 books and monographs and over 700 articles and papers in major international journals such as IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing, International Journal of Control, Systems Science and Electrical Engineering Canadian Journal.
He organized and presided over 60 scientific sessions at international conferences, and was a member of about 30 scientific committees. He has lectured at over 20 universities in the United States, Japan, Canada and Europe as a visiting professor. He supervised more than 60 doctoral dissertations completed and reviewed many doctoral theses and dissertations. His dozens of alumni received the title of professor in Poland or abroad.
He is a member of editorial boards of journals such as International Journal of Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing, Foundations of Computing and Decision Sciences, Archives of Control Sciences. From 1 April 1997, is the editor of the Bulletin of the Academy of Technical Sciences.
