  • Fault detection and isolation of pitch actuator faults in a floating wind turbine 

    Tutivén Gálvez, Christian; Vidal Seguí, Yolanda; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; Rodellar Benedé, José (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, the problem of detection and isolation of pitch actuator faults in wind turbines (WTs) is addressed. First, interval observers are used by means of the Luenberger observer to obtain an upper and a lower ...
  • Robust fuzzy sliding mode control for air supply on PEM fuel cell system 

    Baroud, Zakaria; Benalia, Atallah; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (InderScience Publishers, 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, an adaptive fuzzy sliding mode controller is employed for air supply on proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) systems. The control objective is to adjust the oxygen excess ratio at a given set point in ...
  • Formal controller synthesis for wastewater systems with signal temporal logic constraints: the Barcelona case study 

    Farahani, Samira S.; Zadeh Soudjani, Sadegh; Majumdar, Rupak; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present an approach for formal controller synthesis of the Barcelona wastewater system. The goal of the controller is to minimize overflow in the system and to reduce environmental contamination (pollution). Due to the ...
  • A game theoretical randomized method for large-scale systems partitioning 

    Muros Ponce, Francisco; Maestre Torreblanca, José María; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Algaba Durán, Encarnación; Fernández Camacho, Eduardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, a game theory-based partitioning algorithm for large-scale systems (LSS) is proposed. More specifically, a game over nodes is introduced in a model predictive control framework. The Shapley value of this ...
  • Stabilisation of state-and-input constrained nonlinear systems via diffeomorphisms: A Sontag's formula approach with an actual application 

    Acosta Rodríguez, José Ángel; Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Fossas Colet, Enric (2018-09-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work, we provide a new and constructive outlook for the control of state-and-input constrained nonlinear systems. Previously, explicit solutions have been mainly focused on the finding of a barrier-like Lyapunov ...
  • Sensory substitution for force feedback recovery: A perception experimental study 

    Avilés Rivero, Angélica; Alsaleh, Samar M.; Philbeck, John; Raventos, Stella P.; Younes, Naji; Hahn, James K.; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (2018-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robotic-assisted surgeries are commonly used today as a more efficient alternative to traditional surgical options. Both surgeons and patients benefit from those systems, as they offer many advantages, including less trauma ...
  • Wind turbine multi-fault detection and classification based on SCADA data 

    Vidal Seguí, Yolanda; Pozo Montero, Francesc; Tutivén Gálvez, Christian (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Due to the increasing installation of wind turbines in remote locations, both onshore and offshore, advanced fault detection and classification strategies have become crucial to accomplish the required levels of reliability ...
  • Ergonomics in the Industry 4.0: virtual and augmented reality 

    Muñoz Morgado, Luis Miguel (OMICS International, 2018-08-24)
    Article
    Open Access
    A brief reflection of the advantages and the ergonomic aspects to consider of the virtual and augmented reality technology in the context of the industry 4.0.
  • UAV visual and laser sensors fusion for detection and positioning in industrial applications 

    Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-06-28)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a solution to localize Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles with respect to pipes and other cylindrical elements found in inspection and maintenance tasks both in industrial and civilian infrastructures. The ...
  • New interactive books for control education 

    Guzmán Sánchez, José Luis; Piguet, Yves; Dormido Bencomo, Sebastián; Berenguel Soria, Manuel; Costa Castelló, Ramon (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents ongoing project to develop new interactive books for control education. The novelty of the proposed idea is to merge web-based solutions with LaTex text into a epub format. In such a way, classical ...
  • Optimization of FinFET-based gain cells for low power sub-vt embedded drams 

    Amat, Esteve; Calomarde Palomino, Antonio; Canal Corretger, Ramon; Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio (2018-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sub-threshold circuits (sub-V T) are a promising alternative in the implementation of low power electronics. The implementation of gain-cell embedded DRAMs (eDRAMs) based on FinFET devices requires a careful design to ...
  • Deciding the different robot roles for patient cognitive training 

    Andriella, Antonio; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Hernández Farigola, Joan; Torras, Carme (2018-09-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) represent a major challenge for health systems within the aging population. New and better instruments will be crucial to assess the disease severity and ...
