    Population games have become a powerful tool for solving resource-allocation problems in a distributed manner, and for the design of non-centralized optimization-based controllers. The aim of this paper is to illustrate ...
  • Economic model predictive control for energy dispatch of a smart microgrid system 

    Nassourou, M; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The problem of energy dispatch in heterogeneous complex systems such as smart grids cannot be efficiently solved using classical control or ad-hoc methods. This paper proposes the application of Economic Model Predictive ...
  • Performance of MV distributed energy power systems under model-predictive control and conventional power systems state estimators 

    Sandoval Moreno, John; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this paper, the performance of a middle voltage (MV) distributed power generation system under a Model Predictive Control (MPC) strategy is tested. The designed controller receives process information from an state ...
  • Economic predictive control of a pasteurization plant using a linear parameter varying model 

    Karimi Pour, F.; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper proposes the application of Economic Model Predictive Control (EMPC) for a scale pilot pasteurization plant that is modelled by means of a linear parameter varying (LPV) model. The LPV model considers the variation ...
  • Optimal design of a wastewater treatment plant using advanced technologies 

    Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Romera Formiguera, Juli; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; de Campos Paus, Sergio (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    n this paper, a methodology and software tool for the optimal design of advanced waste treatment plants is presented. The problem of the design of the WWTP is translated into a discrete optimization problem. As a result, ...
