    Abstract : Performance demands put on combustion engines are ever increasing, e.g. demands on emissions and fuel consumption. The increased demands together with new combustion concepts increase the need for feedback engine and combustion control. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protection for Multiterminal HVDC Grids - A Digital Contribution

    Author : Ilka Jahn; Staffan Norrga; Hans-Peter Nee; Dirk Westermann; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVDC transmission; power system protection; IED; real-time systems; test bench; field programmable gate array; open-source hardware; open-source software; power engineering education; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to (1) enhance understanding of mechanisms that are important for the protection of high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) grids, and (2) suggest possible technical solutions. To that end, digital technologies were used both in simulation, as well as in a laboratory environment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reliable Virtual Commissioning

    Author : Henrik Carlsson; Bengt Lennartson; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Virtual commissioning; Simulation based PLC control code verification; Virtual manufacturing; Industrial control system; PLC; Continuous simulation; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Virtual commissioning is a technique for programming, optimising and verifying industrial automated production, such as robot controllers and programmable logic controllers (PLC), off-line in a simulated environment. Compared with traditional robot off-line programming and simulation, the scope is wider and can include an entire production cell. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards the safe-IOCOS relation -- On testing and correction of errors in an implementation to ensure safety

    Author : Adnan Khan; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Safety; Supervisory control theory; Model-based testing; PLC; Input-output conformance simulation relation;

    Abstract : The technological advancement that has occurred at a blistering pace in the past decades has enabled manufacturing companies to conceive innovative products. However, to meet growing demands of consumers, manufacturing companies are expected to maintain a steady production rate without compromising product quality. READ MORE
