8. Design of Nonlinear Internal Model Controller using Local Linear Models, and its Application

Shinichi Imai
Pages: 108 - 111
In chemical plants and other process industries, desired conditions are achieved by adjusting controllers. However, it is difficult to obtain the desired control response because most of the controllers use fixed Proportional-Integral-Differential (PID) control. On the other hand, the internal model...

9. Simulation and Regression Testing Technique for Software Formal Specifications Based on Extended Place/Transition Net with Attributed Tokens

Tomohiko Takagi, Ryo Kurozumi
Pages: 112 - 116
We propose a technique of simulation and regression testing for Extended Place/transition Net with Attributed Tokens (EPNAT) models, and then show a prototype tool to partially support it. In the technique, the information about a current marking, current values of variables, and current fireable transitions...
