    Clemente León, Alejandro; Costa Castelló, Ramon (2020-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a literature review about the concept of redox flow batteries and its automation and monitoring. Specifically, it is focused on the presentation of all-vanadium redox flow batteries which have several ...
  • Temperaturecontrol for a proton-exchange membrane fuel cell system with unknown dynamic compensations 

    Xing, Yashan; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Na, JIng (Wiley-Blackwell, 2020-10-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    Numerous control strategies of temperature regulation have been carried out for proton-exchange membrane fuel cell systems including a cooling fan in order to ensure operation at the desired condition and extend the lifetime ...
  • Fault detection for uncertain LPV systems using probabilistic set-membership parity relation 

    Wan, Yiming; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Wang, Ye; Harinath, Eranda; Braatz, Richard D. (2020-03-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper considers fault detection of uncertain linear parameter varying systems that have polynomial dependence on parametric uncertainties. A conventional set-membership (SM) approach is able to ensure zero false alarm ...
  • A non-centralized predictive control strategy for wind farm active power control: A wake-based partitioning approach 

    Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Domínguez Garcia, José Luis; De Schutter, Bart (Elsevier, 2020-05-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Owing to wake effects, the power production of each turbine in a wind farm is highly coupled to the operating conditions of the other turbines. Wind farm control strategies must take into account these couplings and produce ...
  • Dynamic modelling of alkaline self-pressurized electrolyzers: a phenomenological-based semiphysical approach 

    David, Martín Rafael; Alvarez, Hernan; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Sánchez Peña, Ricardo Salvador (2020-01-01)
    Article
