Systemic Design of a Sliding Mode based model for analyzing the performance of an Acoustic Sensor

Miguel Patiño-Ortiz, Ricardo Carreño-Aguilera


Currently it is common to use sensors in all aspects of daily life. So, in geophysical processes electronic sensors are required to measure and automate different tasks such as characterization of deep wells, basins, lakes and caves among others. Acoustic sensors are famous because its foundation is mechanical detection, or a sound wave. The acoustic signals are able to be reflected in places which other signals cannot operate either drawbacks or where the liquid moves.


This research aims to develop a systemic mathematical model, representative of the acoustic waves used in acoustic sensors, for analyzing the response to deterministic and non-deterministic variables, also, that assists in the analysis of the damages that have with environmental disturbances, problems which is currently being studied in the worldwide, in order to expand the potential of using acoustic sensors in the global scope.


To achieve the objectives of this research, a systemic and systematic approach methodology is followed, using techniques based on sliders modes to design state feedback control, allowing robustness in the system. Likewise, application results are discussed in the model for optimization. The application of theories and methods, with a systemic and systematic approach enables other form of analysis, interpretation and solve systems problems.
