Modeling and Control of a Rotating Channel
Proc. of the 2001 IEEE Joint Int. Conf. on Control Application and International Symposium on Intelligent Control, Mexico City, 5-7 Sept.2001.

Abstract: The modeling and control of a rotating channel, used in a steel company to convey steel bars coming out from the last stand of the rolling train to the cooling bed, is described in this paper. We face the problem of synthesizing a controller such to satisfy the performance needed for real application. To this aim a lumped parameters model is first derived and subsequently a time-varying control scheme is presented. The derived control has been successfully tested on an accurate ad-hoc developed simulator of the plant, which captures the major issues arising in the specific problem.
