    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    Buildings need periodic revision about their state, materials degrade with time and repairs or renewals have to be made driven by maintenance needs or safety requirements. That happens with any kind of buildings and ...
  • Reducing energy consumption in an industrial process by using model predictive control 

    Caiza Chicaiza, Luis Alberto; Rosich Oliva, Albert; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Benitez, Diego (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this paper, we propose to use Model Predictive Control techniques to reduce the energy consumption in an industrial process by incorporating energy consumption restrictions in the problem formulation. We propose to use ...
  • Improving calibration of chemical gas sensors for fire detection using small scale setups 

    Solórzano, Ana; Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Marco, Santiago (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Chemical sensing may be better suited than conventional smoke-based detectors for the detection of certain type of fires, in particular in fires where smoke appears after gas emissions. However, chemical-based systems also ...
  • Adaptable multimodal interaction framework for robot-assisted cognitive training 

    Taranovic, Aleksandar; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Torras, Carme (2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The size of the population with cognitive impairment is increasing worldwide, and socially assistive robotics offers a solution to the growing demand for professional carers. Adaptation to users generates more natural, ...
  • Conceptual quality modelling and integrated control of combined urban drainage system 

    Sun, Congcong; Joseph Duran, Bernat; Maruejouls, Thibaud; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Muñoz, eduard; Messeguer Amela, Jordi; Sampe, Sara; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Litrico, Xavier (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents the first results of conceptual quality modelling approach oriented to the integrated real-time control (RTC) strategy for urban drainage networks (UDN) and wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) developed ...
  • A consensus degree for hesitant fuzzy linguistic decision making 

    Montserrat Adell, Jordi; Agell Jané, Núria; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Ruiz Vegas, Francisco Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper proposes a measure of consensus for group decision making in the hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets framework. An extension of the set of hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets is considered to capture differences ...
  • On-line adaptive side-by-side human robot companion in dynamic urban environments 

    Repiso Polo, Ely; Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents an adaptive side-by-side human-robot companion approach for navigation in urban dynamic environments, based on the anticipative kinodynamic planning. The adaptive means that the robot is capable of ...
  • Dynamic analysis of an ethanol steam reformer for hydrogen production 

    Llerena Pizarro, Omar Rosendo; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Serra, Maria; Silveira, José Luz (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The attempt to improve hydrogen quality has motivated research focused solely on the design of reactors for hydrogen production, paying little interest to their modelling and much less attention to its dynamic analysis. ...
  • A wind farm operational strategy for primary frequency support optimization 

    Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Prada Gil, Mikel de (2017)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    With the aim of distributing the total power required at the wind farm control level for each wind turbine, we proposed a multi-objective model predictive control scheme able to (i) ensure the tracking of the power demanded ...
  • From qualitative absolute order-of-magnitude to the extended set of Hesitant Fuzzy Linguistic Term Sets 

    Montserrat Adell, Jordi; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Ruiz Vegas, Francisco Javier; Agell Jané, Núria (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Hesitant fuzzy linguistic term sets were introduced to grasp the uncertainty existing in human reasoning. In this paper, inspired by absolute order-of-magnitude qualitative reasoning techniques, an extension of the set ...
  • Embedded optimization-based controllers for industrial processes 

    Ibáñez López, Carlos; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; González García, Brais (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Due to the growth of computational capabilities and the proliferation of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA), the utilization of model predictive control (MPC) for embedded applications in the industry has become a ...
  • Peak shaving through closed-loop optimization applied to machine tools with periodic behaviour 

    Ubach Pallàs, Sergi Xavier; Diaz Castañeda, Jenny Lorena; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Antunez, Miguel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper deals with machine tools characterized by a periodic behaviour and high-power peaks that require an oversized electrical network and cause high costs because electrical utilities charge greatly each power peak.To ...
