  • Air flow regulation in fuel cells: an efficient design of hybrid fuzzy-PID control 

    Baroud, Zakaria; Benalia, Atallah; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a hybrid fuzzy-PID controller for air flow supply on a Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) system. The control objective is to adjust the oxygen excess ratio at a given setpoint in order to prevent ...

    Grosso Pérez, Juan Manuel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper proposes a reliability-based economic model predictive control (MPC) strategy for the management of generalized flow-based networks, integrating some ideas on network service reliability, dynamic safety stock ...
  • Robust MPC for actuator-fault tolerance using set-based passive fault detection and active fault isolation 

    Xu, Feng; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Olaru, Sorin; Niculescu, Silviu-Iulian (2017-03-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper, a fault-tolerant control (FTC) scheme is proposed for actuator faults, which is built upon tube-based model predictive control (MPC) as well as set-based fault detection and isolation (FDI). In the class of ...
  • Leak localization in water distribution networks using a mixed model-based/data-driven approach 

    Soldevila Coma, Adrià; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Duviella, Eric; Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016-10-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper proposes a new method for leak localization in water distribution networks (WDNs). In a first stage, residuals are obtained by comparing pressure measurements with the estimations provided by a WDN model. In a ...

    Comasòlivas Font, Ramon; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Escobet Canal, Teresa; Escobet Canal, Antoni; Romera Formiguera, Juli (2017-04-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents the modeling and robust low-level control design of a redundant mobile robot with four omnidirectional wheels, the iSense Robotic (iSRob) platform, that was designed to test safe control algorithms. ...
  • Nonlinear model predictive control for thermal management in plug-in hybrid electric vehicles 

    López Sanz, Jorge; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Álvarez Flórez, Jesús Andrés; Moreno Eguilaz, Juan Manuel; Ruiz Mansilla, Rafael (2016-08-02)
    Article
    Accés obert
    A nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) for the thermal management (TM) of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) is presented. TM in PHEVs is crucial to ensure good components performance and durability in all ...
  • Data analytics methodology for monitoring quality sensors and events in the Barcelona drinking water network 

    García Valverde, Diego; Creus Rodriguez, Ramon; Minoves Ruiz, Meritxell; Pardo, Xavier; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2017-01-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Water quality management is a key area to guarantee drinking water safety to users. This task is based on disinfection techniques, such as chlorination, applied to the drinking water network to prevent the growth of ...
  • Data Validation and reconstruction for performance enhancement and maintenance of water networks 

    Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Espin, Santiago; Roquet, Jaume (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In a real water network, a telecontrol system must periodically acquire, store and validate data gathered by sensor measurements in order to achieve accurate monitoring of the whole network in real time. For each sensor ...
  • Model predictive control for ethanol steam reformers with membrane separation 

    Serra, Maria; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Li, Mingming; Llorca Piqué, Jordi (2017-01-26)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper focuses on the dynamic modelling and the predictive control of an ethanol steam reformer (ESR) with Pdsingle bondAg membrane separation stage for the generation of pure hydrogen. Hydrogen purity necessary to ...
  • Constrained distributed optimization : A population dynamics approach 

    Barreiro Gómez, Julian; Quijano Silva, Nicanor; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2016-07)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Large-scale network systems involve a large number of states, which makes the design of real-time controllers a challenging task. A distributed controller design allows to reduce computational requirements since tasks are ...
