  • Model Predictive Control for Ethanol Steam Reformers 

    Li, Mingming (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This thesis firstly proposes a new approach of modelling an ethanol steam reformer (ESR) for producing pure hydrogen. Hydrogen has obvious benefits as an alternative for feeding the proton exchange membrane fuel cells ...
  • Efficient Predictive Control for polytopic systems: application to the four-tank system

    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    The present work proposes to develop a Fault Tolerant Control strategy based on Robust Efficient Predictive Control for non-linear systems that can be modeled using a polytopic model. The proposed Efficient Predictive ...
  • State Observers Design for PEMFC Systems 

    Luna Pacho, Julio Alberto (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    A series of nonlinear state observers are developed to estimate unmeasurable variables in a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) system. A study of the most relevant variables to estimate which will improve the e ...
  • Combining depth with appearance images for object detection using online learning 

    Vaquero Gómez, Victor (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This Master's Thesis presents a new developed algorithm that merges Appearance and Depth Images in order to perform the detection of objects in scenes. This new algorithm uses the approach of the Online Learning Random ...
  • Active Appearance Models for People Recognition with a RGB-D Sensor 

    Trejo Ramírez, Karla Andrea (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Active Appearance Models (AAMs) is a computer vision procedure for statistical matching of object shape and appearance between images. The present work will analyze how AAMs can be employed with RGB-Depth technology, so ...
