  • Indirect model for roughness in rough honing processes based on artificial neural networks 

    Sivatte Adroer, Mauricio; Llanas Parra, Francesc Xavier; Buj Corral, Irene; Vivancos Calvet, Joan (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the present paper an indirect model based on neural networks is presented for modelling the rough honing process. It allows obtaining values to be set for different process variables (linear speed, tangential speed, ...
  • UIO design for singular delayed LPV systems with application to actuator fault detection and isolation 

    Hassanabadi, Amir Hossein; Shafiee, Masoud; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016-01-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, the unknown input observer (UIO) design for singular delayed linear parameter varying (LPV) systems is considered regarding its application to actuator fault detection and isolation. The design procedure ...
  • Combining CSP and MPC for the operational control of water networks 

    Sun, Congcong; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2015)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a control scheme which uses a combination of linear Model Predictive Control (MPC) and a Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP) to solve the non-linear operational optimal control of Drinking Water ...
  • Set membership parity space hybrid system diagnosis 

    Vento Maldonado, Jorge I.; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Sarrate Estruch, Ramon (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, diagnosis for hybrid systems using a parity space approach that considers model uncertainty is proposed. The hybrid diagnoser is composed of modules which carry out the mode recognition and diagnosis tasks ...
  • Variable-structure control with complementarity-inputs for a lean-burn IC engine of a series hybrid vehicle 

    Roqueiro, Nestor; Fossas Colet, Enric; Martins Oliveira, A. A.; Puleston, Paul Federico (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a robust controller for an internal combustion (IC) engine, as the first stage of a project to develop a hybrid light urban vehicle, running on ethanol in lean burn. In particular, this work focuses on ...
  • Prevention of adenosine A2A receptor activation diminishes beat-to-beat alternation in human atrial myocytes 

    Llacher Alsina, Anna Pilar; Vallmitjana Lees, Alex; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; Montiel Dacosta, José Antonio; Cinca Cusculluela, Juan (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    © 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Atrial fibrillation (AF) has been associated with increased spontaneous calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum and linked to increased adenosine A2A receptor (A2AR) ...
  • A distance geometry approach to the singularity analysis of 3R robots 

    Thomas, Federico (ASME PRESS, 2015)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper shows how the computation of the singularity locus of a 3R robot can be reduced to the analysis of the relative position of two coplanar ellipses. Since the relative position of two conics is a projective ...
  • An LMI approach to robust fault estimation for a class of nonlinear systems 

    Witczak, Marcin; Buciakowski, Mariusz; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Rotondo, Damiano; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha (2015-06-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper presents a robust fault estimation approach for a class of nonlinear discrete-time systems. In particular, two sources of uncertainty are present in the considered class of systems, that is, an unknown input and ...
  • Gesture learning and execution in a humanoid robot via dynamic movement primitives 

    Pfeiffer, Sammy; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (2015-12-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A system for learning and executing gestures in a humanoid robot has been developed and implemented in this work. Gestures are represented via the use of dynamical movement primitives on the robotic platform REEM. Since ...
  • Regularity of cardiac rhythm as a marker of sleepiness in sleep disordered breathing 

    Guaita, Marc; Melia, Umberto; Vallverdú Ferrer, Montserrat; Caminal Magrans, Pere; Vilaseca, Lluis; Montserrat, Josep Maria; Gaig, Carlos; Salamero, Manuel; Santamaria, Joan (2015-04-10)
