  2. 2. Representing human-automation challenges

    University dissertation from LTH, Lund University

    Author : Jonas Andersson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; human-machine systems; control rooms; cognitive systems engineering; automation;

    Abstract : Automation technology is widely implemented in process control domains due to its benefits of improving efficiency and enhancing control. However, use of automation also introduces an often complex intermediary between the human and the controlled domain, which can obscure from the operator how system functioning is achieved.

  4. 4. Active Distributed Power Systems Functional Structures for Real-Time Operation of Sustainable Energy Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Industrial Electrical Engineering and Automation, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Jörgen Svensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automation; Distributed power systems; RES; Power electronics; Energy management system; Real-time operation; Advanced functions; Communication; Elektronik och elektroteknik; Electronics and Electrical technology; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Present power system will face great challenges in several areas depending on the market economy, extensive global integration and constant need for more electric power, which will force the system to operate much closer to its stability limits. Meeting these challenges may involve improving and complementing or even total restructuring of the power systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Power System Oscillations - Detection, Estimation and Control

    University dissertation from Department of Industrial Electrical Engineering and Automation, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Morten Hemmingsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
