Typical control systems designs concentrate on plant output specifications and don’t always take sufficiently into account specifications related to its input (e.g., coming from saturation problems). This fact is especially relevant when there are degrees of freedom in the plant input selection due to some kind of actuator redundancy. In this talk we will present a dynamic input allocation scheme that has been proposed roughly five years ago. The core ideas behind the dynamical allocation scheme will be first discussed and motivated. Then we will overview a number of application experiences where the method has shown desirable performance.

Since 2011 he is Directeur de Recherche at the LAAS CNRS, Toulouse (France) and since 2013 he holds a part time associate professor position at the University of Trento, Italy. Luca Zaccarian’s main research interests include analysis and design of nonlinear and hybrid control systems, modeling and control of mechatronic systems. He has been a member of the IEEE -CSS Conference Editorial Board and an associate editor for Systems and Control Letters. He is currently a member of the EUCA -CEB, an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control and the IFAC journal Automatca. He was a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE -CSS in 2014 and he is a senior member of the IEEE since 2009. He was a recipient of the 2001 O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award given by the American Automatic Control Council.
