2020 - IEEE Fellow For contributions to sliding mode control theory

Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Control theory
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Electrical engineering

Control theory, Sliding mode control, Variable structure control, Robustness and Control engineering are her primary areas of study. Many of her studies on Control theory apply to Microgrid as well. Her Sliding mode control research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Control system, Algorithm design and Vehicle dynamics.

Her studies deal with areas such as Mechanical system, Mathematical optimization and Backstepping as well as Variable structure control. Antonella Ferrara has researched Robustness in several fields, including Inverse dynamics and Motion control. Her study looks at the relationship between Control engineering and topics such as Industrial robot, which overlap with System identification.

Her most cited work include:

  • Chattering avoidance by second-order sliding mode control (855 citations)
  • On multi-input chattering-free second-order sliding mode control (308 citations)
  • On second order sliding mode controllers (275 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Antonella Ferrara mainly investigates Control theory, Sliding mode control, Control engineering, Variable structure control and Nonlinear system. Her study in Robustness, Adaptive control, Control theory, Control system and Robust control are all subfields of Control theory. Her research in Sliding mode control tackles topics such as Actuator which are related to areas like Fault detection and isolation.

Her Control engineering study also includes fields such as

  • Model predictive control which connect with Optimal control,
  • Motion control which intersects with area such as Inverse dynamics. Her Variable structure control research integrates issues from Manifold and Mathematical optimization. Her studies link Convergence with Nonlinear system.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Control theory (74.88%)
  • Sliding mode control (48.79%)
  • Control engineering (26.33%)

  • Sliding mode control (48.79%)
  • Control (9.90%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her main research concerns Control theory, Sliding mode control, Control, Nonlinear system and Robustness. Antonella Ferrara has included themes like Frequency deviation, Electric power system and Voltage in her Control theory study. She works in the field of Sliding mode control, focusing on Variable structure control in particular.

Her Control study also includes

  • Transport engineering and related State,
  • Fuel efficiency which connect with Bottleneck and Optimal control. Her Nonlinear system research incorporates elements of Control engineering, Norm, Bounded function and Time derivative. Her work deals with themes such as Work, Motion planning and Track, which intersect with Control engineering.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • A Robust Consensus Algorithm for Current Sharing and Voltage Regulation in DC Microgrids (62 citations)
  • Sliding mode voltage control of boost converters in DC microgrids (44 citations)
  • Traffic control via moving bottleneck of coordinated vehicles (30 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Control theory
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Electrical engineering

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Control theory, Sliding mode control, Nonlinear system, Observer and Voltage. Her Control theory study combines topics in areas such as Distributed generation, Voltage regulation and Microgrid.
