Career Summary

Biography

J.A. De Dona completed a PhD in August 2000, in the area of Control Systems, in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of Newcastle. The title of his PhD Thesis was Input Constrained Control. The most significant contribution to the research field of control systems from his PhD Thesis was the realisation, and rigorous proof, that constrained Model Predictive Control can be solved analytically by using dynamic programming techniques. This has revealed a number of interesting connections between optimality based constrained control and other control techniques that, before, were thought to be totally unrelated; as for example Anti-windup control, a technique traditionally regarded as ad-hoc. The results obtained in

J.A. De Dona's Thesis were seminal to a considerable amount of subsequent research output produced by a team from the University of Newcastle, including Professor Graham Goodwin and Dr. Maria Seron and collaborators. One of the results from this research team, towards which J.A. De Dona's contribution was essential, was to unravel a duality relationship between constrained control and estimation problems. The team Goodwin-Seron-De Dona has recently published a book, Constrained Control and Estimation. An Optimisation Approach, Springer-Verlag, 2005, which according to a recent review by Frank L. Lewis in IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, vol. 51 (2006), pp. 176-177, "provides a seminal foundation for unifying constrained control and constrained estimation within the framework of nonlinear programming."

Recently, J.A. De Dona, together with a PhD student under his supervision, J.B. Mare, have further extended the analytical solution of receding horizon constrained control by dynamic programming to more general cases, and have also solved analytically the moving horizon constrained state estimation problem. These analytical solutions have revealed an interesting symmetry between both problems, namely, constrained estimation and constrained control, that could not be exposed before. These results complement the duality results mentioned above, in establishing a solid connection between control and estimation in the presence of constraints.
