  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Optimal and Resilient Control with Applications in Smart Distribution Grids

    Author : Kaveh Paridari; Henrik Sandberg; De Persis Claudio; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resilient Control; Robust Control; Optimal Control; Smart Distribution Grid; Industrial Control Systems; Microgrids; Demand Response; Energy; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The electric power industry and society are facing the challenges and opportunities of transforming the present power grid into a smart grid. To meetthese challenges, new types of control systems are connected over IT infrastructures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimal Control of Electrified Powertrains

    Author : Martin Sivertsson; Lars Eriksson; Giorgio Rizzoni; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Optimal Control; Diesel-Electric; Hybrid Electric Vehicles;

    Abstract : Vehicle powertrain electrification, i.e. combining the internal combustion engine (ICE) with an electric motor (EM), is a potential way of meeting the increased demands for efficient and low emission transportation, at a price of increased powertrain complexity since more degrees of freedom (DoF) have been introduced.

  4. 4. 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

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

    Author : Pär Samuelsson; Bengt Carlsson; Gustaf Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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; Automatic Control; Reglerteknik;

    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
