  1. 1. Modeling and Control of the Paper Machine Drying Section

    Author : Ola Slätteke; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reglerteknik; robotteknik; Automatiska system; Moisture control; Paper-making; Pressure control; Predictive Control; Mid-ranging Control; Wood; Drying Section Modeling; Automation; control engineering; robotics; pulp and paper technology; Pappers- och massateknik;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is modeling and control of the last part of the paper machine - the drying section. Paper is dried by letting it pass through a series of steam heated cylinders and the evaporation is thus powered by the latent heat of vaporization of the steam. READ MORE

  2. 2. Control and Estimation of Automotive Powertrains with Backlash

    Author : Adam Lagerberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; backlash control; powertrain control; driveability; backlash estimation; model predictive control; optimal control; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : In automotive powertrains, backlash causes problems with vehicle driveability, specifically at so called tip-in and tip-out maneuvers. These maneuvers may trigger phenomena known in the automotive industry as shunt and shuffle, which are partially caused by the backlash. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nonlinear Identification and Control with Solar Energy Applications

    Author : Linda Brus; Bengt Carlsson; Torbjörn Wigren; Graham C. Goodwin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; feedforward control; model predictive control; nonlinear control; nonlinear systems; recursive identification; solar power; system identification; time delay systems; Automatic control; Reglerteknik; Automatic Control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Nonlinear systems occur in industrial processes, economical systems, biotechnology and in many other areas. The thesis treats methods for system identification and control of such nonlinear systems, and applies the proposed methods to a solar heating/cooling plant. READ MORE

  4. 4. Predictive control for autonomous driving : With experimental evaluation on a heavy-duty construction truck

    Author : Pedro Lima; Bo Wahlberg; Jonas Mårtensson; Alberto Bemporad; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Autonomous vehicles; model predictive control; automatic control; heavy-duty vehicles; mining; trucks; clothoids; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Autonomous vehicles is a rapidly expanding field, and promise to play an important role in society. In more isolated environments, vehicle automation can bring significant efficiency and production benefits and it eliminates repetitive jobs that can lead to inattention and accidents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Look-ahead Control of Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Erik Hellström; Lars Nielsen; Jan Åslund; Lino Guzzella; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; automotive control; dynamic programming; predictive control; fuel-optimal control; long haulage truck; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Trucks are responsible for the major part of inland freight and so, they are a backbone of the modern economy but they are also a large consumer of energy. In this context, a dominating vehicle is a truck with heavy load on a long trip. READ MORE
