  1. 1. Model Predictive Control (MPC) of an Advanced Multi-Cylinder Engine for Transient Operations

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Lianhao Yin; [2018]

    Abstract : The transportation sector is one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas CO2 and emission of toxic gas. In this sector, advanced technologies and innovations to increase engine efficiency is an important research topic. Low-Temperature Combustion (LTC) concepts are effective approaches for high-efficiency engines. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mutations and Mutation Rate in the Development of Fluoroquinolone Resistance

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Patricia Komp Lindgren; Diarmaid Hughes; Fernando Baquero; [2007]
    Keywords : Microbiology; Mutation rate; Fluoroquinolone; Resistance; Biological fitness; Urinary tract infection; Escherichia coli; MPC; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : The emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria world wide is a serious problem, and very few new drugs are under development. The selection of resistant bacteria is affected by factors such as mutation rate, biological fitness cost and the rate of fitness compensation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Resistance to Fluoroquinolones in Escherichia coli: Prevention, Genetics and Fitness Costs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda L. Marcusson; Diarmaid Hughes; Karl Drlica; [2007]
    Keywords : Biology; Fluoroquinolone; Escherichia coli; Resistance; Gyrase; Topoisomerase IV; MPC; Fitness compensation; Urinary Tract Infection; Biologi;

    Abstract : Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are increasingly a major healthcare problem but very few new classes of antibiotics have been discovered or launched in recent decades. Approaches to dealing with the problem include learning how bacteria evolve to resistance and improving dosing regimens with current antibiotics so as to reduce the selection of resistant bacteria.

  4. 4. Model Based Optimization of a Complete Diesel Engine/SCR System

    University dissertation from Division of Combustion Engines, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Claes Ericson; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MPC; model based optimization; real time models; model based control; SCR; optimization; EGR;

    Abstract : Achieving upcoming emissions legislation (Euro VI) for heavy trucks is a serious challenge for the manufacturers. Apart from the increasingly strict limits on nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate emissions (PM), the limited amount of fossil fuels as well as alarming climate changes simultaneously drives the demand for low CO2 emissions.

  5. 5. Polyhydroxyl and Polyphosphorylcholine functionalized Silica for Hydrophilic interaction liquid Chromatography- Synthesis, characterization and application

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Nhat Thi Hong Bui; Knut Irgum; Michael Lämmerhofer; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography; HILIC; silica; TRIS; acrylamide acrylate; ATRP; iniferter; “controlled living’’ radical polymerization; N; N′-methylenebisacrylamide; MPC; stationary phase; analytisk kemi; Analytical Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the development of new stationary phases for use in hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography using TRIS-based and phosphorylcholine typed monomers and porous silica particles as starting substrates. In this thesis, several ways of polymerizing highly hydrophilic mono­mers onto pore surfaces of silica supports are described, based on several “grafting from” schemes. READ MORE
