Automatic Tuning of Gain-Scheduled Controllers

In this webinar you will learn how to automatically tune gain-scheduled controllers using new capabilities in Release 2013b. Gain scheduling is a well-known and widely-used method for controlling nonlinear or time-varying plants. It involves computing linear approximations of the plant at various operating points, tuning controller gains at each operating condition, and scheduling controller gains as the plant operating conditions change.

Using industry examples, MathWorks engineers will demonstrate how to use the new capabilities to automate the tuning process and avoid tedious and time-consuming manual tuning of the controller.
