In thks paper, the tension and speed of an axially moving material system are regulated using control torques applied to rollers at each end of a controlled .span. Given a distributed parameter model, Lyapunov-type argument.s produce a model-based boundary control law that exponentially stabilize.s the material tension and speed at the desired setpoints. Dynamic simulation results compare the tension and speed setpoint regulation provided by the proposed control strategy with standard PID approaches.
