    Abstract : Transition delay in boundary-layer flows is achieved via reactive control of flow instabilities, i.e. Tollmien-Schlichting (TS) waves. Adaptive and model-based control techniques are investigated by means of direct numerical simulations (DNS) and experiments. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; feedforward control; model predictive control; nonlinear control; nonlinear systems; recursive identification; solar power; system identification; time delay systems; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Automatic control; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik 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. Design of Robust PID Controllers with Constrained Control Signal Activity

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Olof Garpinger; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; measurement noise; constrained control signal activity; linear systems; disturbance rejection; PID control; process control; Youla parameterized controllers; algorithms and software;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a new method for design of PI and PID controllers with the level of control signal activity taken into consideration. The main reason why the D-part is often disabled in industrial control loops is because it leads to control signal sensitivity of measurement noise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Turbulent Boundary Layer Separation and Control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ola Lögdberg; KTH.; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flow control; adverse pressure gradient APG ; flow separation; vortex generators; jet vortex generators; pulsed jet vortex generators; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Boundary layer separation is an unwanted phenomenon in most technical applications, as for instance on airplane wings, ground vehicles and in internal flow systems. If separation occurs, it causes loss of lift, higher drag and energy losses. It is thus essential to develop methods to eliminate or delay separation. READ MORE
