Abstract/Summary

This dissertation presents various approaches and techniques in controlling both integer- and fractional-order processes. Approaches include: 1) The use of the Internal Model Control (IMC) methodology with first-order IMC filters to ensure that robustness is obtained given the required disturbance rejection gain value 2) Retuning of an existing unity-feedback system to incorporation fractional-order dynamics by introducing a new external controller without manipulating the original system and 3) Utilizing the Posicast control methodology in controlling a damped fractional-order process by manipulating the input signal. Real-world manifestations of fractional-order dynamics are also presented in this dissertation emphasizing in its applications to bioelectrodes. The design and synthesis of fractional-order elements using RC ladders and operations amplifiers are also presented.
