Welcome to the DISCO Group

The Dynamic Intelligent Systems, Control and Optimization (DISCO) Group is jointly directed by Dr. Beibei Ren and Dr. Jordan Berg. Our vision is to push the boundaries of control theory for systems with model uncertainties and external disturbances; and explore the impacts of control in broad applications, including renewable energies and grid integration, microgrids, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), MEMS, marine/offshore systems and manufacturing systems, etc.



Funding Support


We are thankful for the support from the following:







Jiguo's paper "Continuous Phase Control of Vanadium Dioxide Films " is accepted by ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control.



Our patent "UDE-Based Robust Droop Control for Parallel Inverter Operation" is approved!



Qi's paper "Uncertainty and Disturbance Estimator-Based Global Trajectory Tracking Control for a Quadrotor " is accepted by IEEE Transactions on Mechatronics.



Yeqin's paper "Bounded UDE-based Controller for Input Constrained Systems with Uncertainties and Disturbances " is accepted by IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics.




Our joint paper with Syndem LLC, "Connecting the Home Grid to the Public Grid: Field Demonstration of Virtual Synchronous Machines", is published by IEEE Power Electronics Magazine. Read more >>



Dr. Ren has been elevated to IEEE Senior Member.



We co-organized an NSF-sponsored Workshop on Power Electronics-enabled Operation of Power Systems in Chicago.
