Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The aim of this chapter is to design control law for the DTR (Dynamic Traffic Routing) problem modeled in the distributed parameter setting. For the control design, the chapter uses the sliding mode control technique for regulating the error. Sliding mode control provides a robust method against bounded uncertainties. The price to pay for that robustness is chattering. The chapter shows methods to deal with chattering reduction in the control implementation. Control design and its software simulation using sliding mode control are presented in this chapter. The chapter also provides a simple study of discretization errors that are obtained in the numerical approximation of the distributed model for software simulation. The chapter shows the development of a simple software simulation code and its simulation to study this problem.
