Power and control Research Group of GIKI conducts research in the field of power, optimization and control in fundamental as well as applied side. Optimization in control refers to reducing some cost function. The cost function for optimal control can be derived using Pontryagin’s maximum principle, or by solving the Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman equation. Linear Quadratic Regulator is a simplified form of Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation that represents the cost function in the form of quadratic term. H∞ Loop-shaping is another way of optimizing a cost function, also a part of this Research Group. These optimization techniques are then applied in Micro-electro-mechanical-systems (micro-grippers) and Power Circuits like “efficient topologies in DC-DC converters”.
