Muscular Isometric Force Contraction by Electric Stimulation

Participants : Bernard Bonnard, Jérémy Rouot, Toufik Bakir [Univ. de Bourgogne Franche Conté] .

This project started two years ago under the impulse of T. Bakir (ImVia-UBFC) who defended his HDR on the subject (November, 2018). The problem is the one of optimizing the train pulses of the FES signal to produce the muscular contraction. It is based on the Hill model refined by Ding et al to take into account the variations of the fatigue variable. Preliminary closed loop results were obtained using an MPC-method where the state variable is estimated with an non linear observer [2]. The problem can be stated in the optimal sampled-control data framework; with the collaboration of L. Bourdin (Maths Dept Limoges), Pontryagin-type necessary conditions were derived and partially numerically implemented [1]. The project is supported by a PEPS 1 AMIES and a PGMO Project. A CIFRE Thesis is planned to start in January, 2020 (Phd Student: Quentin Arnaud) in the Company SEGULA, supervised by T. Bakir and co-Supervised by B. Bonnard. See section 8.1.
