  • Energy management and peer-to-peer trading in future smart grids: a distributed game-theoretic approach 

    Belgioioso, Giuseppe; Ananduta, Wayan Wicak; Grammatico, Sergio; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We consider the economic dispatch problem for a day-ahead, peer-to-peer (P2P) electricity market of prosumers (i.e., energy consumers who can also produce electricity) in a distribution network. In our model, each prosumer ...
  • Fault diagnosis and prognosis of a brushless dc motor using a model-based approach 

    Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Zaragoza, Raúl; Rolán Blanco, Alejandro (2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a model-based fault diagnosis and prognosis approach applied to brushless DC motors (BLDC). The objective is an early detection of mechanical and electrical faults in BLDC motors operating under a variety ...
  • Photovoltaic inverters with fault ride-through capability 

    Azevedo, Gustavo M.S.; Vázquez, Gerardo; Luna Alloza, Álvaro; Aguilar Galván, Daniel; Rolán Blanco, Alejandro (ISIE, 2009)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper presents a new control strategy that allow the photovoltaic system operate under grid faults without overpass the rated current and assuring sinusoidal currents. In the classic control strategies used in ...
  • Symmetrical and unsymmetrical voltage sag effects on the three-phase synchronous machine stability 

    Aguilar Galván, Daniel; Rolán Blanco, Alejandro; Vázquez, Gerardo; Córcoles López, Felipe; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro (2009)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper focuses on the effects of voltage sags, both symmetrical and unsymmetrical, on the three-phase Synchronous Machine (SM). Voltage sags on SM cause speed variations, current and torque peaks and hence may cause ...
  • Distributed cooperative control for stepper motors synchronization 

    Yague, Sauro J.; Reyes Carmenaty, Guillermo; Rolán Blanco, Alejandro; Garcia Cerrada, Aurelio (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper describes the design and simulation of a distributed cooperative control algorithm based on multi-agents to synchronize a group of stepper motors. Modeling of the two-phase hybrid stepper motor in closed loop ...
  • Observer design for Takagi-Sugeno Lipschitz systems affected by disturbances using quadratic boundedness 

    Yang, Ruicong; Rotondo, Damiano; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a proportional observer design using quadratic boundedness is proposed in order to estimate the state of a system described by a Takagi-Sugeno model with a Lipschitz nonlinearity term, and affected by unknown ...
  • Economic MPC-LPV control for the operational management of water distribution networks 

    Karimi Pour, Fatemeh; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Elsevier, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents an Economic Model Predictive Control (EMPC) for the operational management of water distribution networks (WDNs) with periodic operation based on embedding the nonlinearity of the model to the Linear ...
  • Set-based replay attack detection in closed-loop systems using a plug & play watermarking approach 

    Trapiello Fernández, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a watermarking signal injection method that compensates its effect in the loop, avoiding thus the signal reinjection. Similar to a virtual actuator scheme, the proposed methodology masks the presence ...
  • LPV-MPC control of autonomous vehicles 

    Alcalá Baselga, Eugenio; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, a novel approach is presented to solve the trajectory tracking problem for autonomous vehicles. This method is based on the use of a cascade control where the external loop solves the position control using ...
  • Nonlinear observer design for PEM fuel-cell systems using first-order sliding mode techniques 

    Baroud, Zakaria; Benalia, Atallah; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a nonlinear observer design for Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel-Cell (PEMFC) systems. The aim of the proposed observer is to reconstruct the oxygen excess ratio through the estimation of their relevant ...
  • Modelling liquid water effect on proton-exchange membrane fuel cells 

    Aguilar Plazaola, José Agustín; Husar, Attila Peter (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work introduces our ongoing research in developing accurate models for predicting and analyzing Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells performance. An initial model, whose response is compared with experimental data is ...
  • Frequency-based detection of replay attacks: application to a quadrotor UAV 

    Sánchez Corrales, Helem Sabina; Rotondo, Damiano; Lopez Vidal, Marc; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are reported to be highly exposed as possible targets of cyber attacks, due to their strong strategic and economic value, and their increasing use in a wide range of operations. Among the ...
