  1. 1. Relay Feedback and Multivariable Control

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Karl Henrik Johansson; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; robotics; Automation; Frequency methods; Process control; Sequential control; Automatic tuning; Control education; Laboratory process; Performance limitations; Decentralized control; Multivariable zero; Multivariable systems; Hybrid control; Nonlinear dynamics; Limit cycles; Oscillations; Relay feedback; Sliding modes; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis treats three issues in control engineering related to relay feedback and multivariable control systems. Linear systems with relay feedback is the first topic. Such systems are shown to exhibit several interesting behaviors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tools for Autonomous Process Control

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology (LTH)

    Author : Anders Wallén; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sequential control; software architectures; fast set point response; spectral estimation; frequency domain identification; relay feedback; non-linear system identification; Autonomous Control; Process Control; Grafcet; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : There is an ongoing trend towards higher automation level in process control systems. The purpose of a plant is to manufacture some product at a high production rate with a consistent quality, while minimizing the use of resources in terms of energy consumption, raw material and labor.

  3. 3. Ammonium Feedback Control in Wastewater Treatment Plants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda Åmand; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aeration control; ammonium feedback control; biological nitrogen removal; full-scale experiments; gain scheduling control; PI control; process control; repetitive control; wastewater treatment; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : The aeration process is often the single largest consumer of electricity in a wastewater treatment plant. Aeration in biological reactors provides microorganisms with oxygen which is required to convert ammonium to nitrate. Ammonium is toxic for aqueous ecosystems and contributes to eutrophication.

  4. 4. Towards Improved Control of TMP Refining Processes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin Eriksson; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; control; dynamic modeling; process limitations; simplified decoupling; Refiner; refining zone temperature; internal interconnections;

    Abstract : The need for improved energy usage has become a key issue in all industrial sectors. In the energy demanding production of mechanical pulps many efforts havefocused on design development, but regarding control of refiners, there is still a potential for improvements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interaction Analysis in Multivariable Control Systems Applications to Bioreactors for Nitrogen Removal

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Halvarsson; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge process; biological nitrogen removal; bioreactor models; control structure design; cost-efficient operation; decentralized control; interaction measures; minimum variance control; multivariable control; wastewater treatment; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Automatic control; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Reglerteknik; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : Many control systems of practical importance are multivariable. In such systems, each manipulated variable (input signal) may affect several controlled variables (output signals) causing interaction between the input/output loops. READ MORE
