Ron Patton

Professor of Control and Intelligent Systems Engineering

Post Nominals Professor of Control and Intelligent Systems Engineering
Biography Professor Ron Patton is Professor of Control and Intelligent Systems Engineering (C&ISE) and Head of the University's C&ISE lab.

His research is involved with the development of robust methods of fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) for control systems and fault tolerant control (FTC) to enhance the reliability of computer control systems.

Prof Patton's application interest is in the development and design of control and estimation methods to enhance the energy efficiency, fault tolerance and reliability of renewable energy systems in offshore wind and wave energy conversion.

He is Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and is widely published with an h-index of h-60.
Research Interests Robust control methods for Fault Tolerant Control in (a) Marine Renewable Energy Systems and in (b) Aerospace systems (e.g. flight control and satellite attitude control).

Unbalanced Rotor Load Mitigation for fatigue reduction in Offshore Wind Turbines.

The development of Robust Estimation and Control methods and algorithms for enhancement of energy conversion in Wave Energy devices.

The development and application of Machine Learning/Gaussian Process methods for estimation and control in uncertain systems.
