  • An application of the Shapley value to perform system partitioning 

    Muros Ponce, Francisco; Maestre Torreblanca, José María; Algaba Durán, Encarnación; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Fernández Camacho, Eduardo (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We introduce a new method to perform the partitioning of non-centralized dynamical linear systems based on the relevance of the possible interconnections among the smallest components of the system. In particular, we analyze ...
  • Icing detection in unmanned aerial vehicles with longitudinal motion using an LPV unknown input observer 

    Rotondo, Damiano; Cristofaros, A; Johansen, T; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a linear parameter varying (LPV) unknown input observer for the diagnosis of actuator faults and icing in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The accretion of ice layers on wings and control surfaces ...
  • Shifting linear quadratic control of constrained continuous-time descriptor LPV systems 

    Rotondo, Damiano; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Recently, the concept of shifting linear quadratic control (SLQC), where some varying parameters are introduced and used to schedule the weighting matrices of a quadratic cost function, has been introduced. This paper ...
  • On the anode pressure and humidity regulation in PEM fuel cells: a nonlinear predictive control approach 

    Rosanas Boeta, Noe; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Kunusch, Cristian (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) strategy is proposed to regulate the humidity in a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) anode. The proposed control strategy uses two controllers in cascade ...
  • Gestión óptima de la energía en vehículos híbridos basados en pilas de combustible utilizando control predictivo económico 

    Sampietro, Jose Luis; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016)
    Conference report

    Las pilas de combustible que utilizan el hidrégeno como combustible están siendo consideradas, en estos últimos años, como una alternativa a los combustibles fósiles para su uso en automóviles. Dicha tecnología se puede ...
  • Health-aware model predictive control ofwind turbines using fatigue prognosis 

    Sánchez Sardi, Héctor Eloy; Escobet Canal, Teresa; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Fogh Odgaard, Peter (International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), 2015)
    Conference report

    Wind turbines components are subject to considerable fatigue due to extreme environmental conditions to which are exposed, especially those located offshore. Interest in the integration of control with fatigue load ...
  • Linear quadratic control of LPV systems using static and shifting specifications 

    Rotondo, Damiano; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper extends some recent results about linear quadratic control (LQC) using linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) to linear parameter varying (LPV) systems. At first, static specifications, where the weighting matrices ...
  • A robust H8 observer design for unknown input nonlinear systems: Application to fault diagnosis of a wind turbine 

    Witczak, Marcin; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Rotondo, Damiano; Faygel, Michal de Rozprza; Mrugalski, Marcin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper is devoted to the problem of designing robust unknown input observer (UIO) for fault estimation purpose. The proposed approach is based on the Takagi-Sugeno models which can be effectively applied for modelling ...
  • Leak detection and localization using models: field results 

    Mirats Tur, Josep Maria; Jarrige, Pierre Antoine; Meseguer Amela, Jordi; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the practical results obtained on the field from two different methods for identifying and locating leaks in water distribution systems using network modeling based algorithms. Both methods are based ...
