    Abstract : This doctoral thesis treats three issues in control engineering related to relay feedback and multivariable control systems. Linear systems with relay feedback is the first topic. Such systems are shown to exhibit several interesting behaviors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control of Nitrogen Removal in Activated Sludge Processes

    Author : Pär Samuelsson; Bengt Carlsson; Gustaf Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge process; non-linear control; external carbon addition; multivariable control; cost-efficient operation; feedforward control; simulators; Automatic control; Reglerteknik; Reglerteknik; Automatic Control;

    Abstract : More stringent requirements on nitrogen removal from wastewater are the motivation for this thesis. In order to improve treatment results and enhance cost-efficient operation of wastewater treatment plants, model based control strategies are presented. A Java based simulator for activated sludge processes (JASS) is presented. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tools for Autonomous Process Control

    Author : Anders Wallén; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sequential control; software architectures; fast set point response; spectral estimation; frequency domain identification; relay feedback; non-linear system identification; Autonomous Control; Process Control; Grafcet; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : There is an ongoing trend towards higher automation level in process control systems. The purpose of a plant is to manufacture some product at a high production rate with a consistent quality, while minimizing the use of resources in terms of energy consumption, raw material and labor.

  5. 5. Linear Quadratic Gaussian Controllers for Feedforward Active Noise Control : Pushing Performance and Moving Towards Adaptive Control

    Author : Annea Barkefors; Mikael Sternad; Anders Ahlén; Lars-Johan Brännmark; Bengt Carlsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; active noise control; ANC; LQG; feedforward control; sound field control; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : Active noise control is a research area focused on using destructive interference of sound fields to attenuate undesired noise. Methods for active noise control are best suited for low frequency noise, as the complexity of the problem grows rapidly with frequency. READ MORE
