    Three-phase induction motors admit a complex-valued space state representation. In this paper, this complex description is used to design a torque controller and a rotor flux observer based on sliding modes. The advantage ...
  • Numerical modeling of underwater noise induced by shipping traffic in the Balearic Sea 

    Castro Alves Oliveira, Tiago; Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Mujal Colilles, Anna (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a novel methodology to model theunderwater noise induced by ship traffic in the Balearic Sea. Inthis regard, a three-dimensional underwater sound propagationmodel is used with realistic time-dependent physical ...
  • “Knowing from” – An outlook on ontology enabled knowledge transfer for robotic systems 

    Diab, Mohammed; Pomerlan, Mihai; Bebler, Daniel; Rosell Gratacòs, Jan (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Encoding practical knowledge about everyday activities has proven difficult, and is a limiting factor in the progress of autonomous robotics. Learning approaches, e.g. imitation learning from human data, have been used as ...
  • Behavioral-based autonomous robot operation under robot-central base loss of communication 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco (Springer, Charm, 2020)
    Conference report

    Robot navigation requires the use of a reliable map. Depending on the environment conditions, this map needs a constant update for a safe navigation. Autonomous robots use this map but at the same can contribute to the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hypoxia-induced effects on ECG depolarization by time warping analysis during recurrent obstructive apnea 

    Romero Pérez, Daniel; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    this work, we evaluated a non-linear approach to estimate morphological variations in ECG depolarization, in the context of intermittent hypoxia (IH). Obstructive apnea sequences were provoked for 15 minutes in anesthetized ...
  • The use of symmetrical angle switched single- & 3-phase rectifiers in micro hydro power plants 

    Bory Prevez, Henry; Martínez García, Herminio; Vazquez Seisdedos, Luis; García Vílchez, Encarnación; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Micro-size hydro power plants (µHPPs) are commonly used at remote areas to supply islanded AC microgrids. A typical way to control grid frequency is to manipulate active power dissipated in ballast loads by AC/AC converters. ...
  • Feed-forward control for a drinking water treatment plant chlorination process 

    Gámiz Caro, Javier Francisco; Martínez García, Herminio; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Vilanova Arbós, Ramón (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Chlorination in drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) is the final process applied to water before it is sent to storage tanks in the supply network for subsequent human consumption. An excessive dosage of chlorine or, ...
  • Cardiovascular coupling-based classification of ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathy patients 

    Rodríguez Benítez, Javier; Schulz, Steffen; Voss, Andreas; Giraldo Giraldo, Beatriz (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most common causes of death in elderly patients. The etiology of cardiomyopathies is difficult to discern clinically. The objective of this study was to classify cardiomyopathy patients ...
  • A deep reinforcement learning approach for path following on a quadrotor 

    Rubí Perelló, Bartomeu; Morcego Seix, Bernardo; Pérez Magrané, Ramon (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes the Deep Deterministic Policy Grandient (DDPG) reinforcement learning algorithm to solve the path following problem in a quadrotor vehicle. This agent is implemented using a separated control and guidance ...
  • 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 ...
  • De la teoría a la práctica: 1011 años después de la integración de la sostenibilidad en el Grado en Ingeniería Informática de la FIB 

    Climent Vilaró, Joan; Cabré Garcia, José M.; Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; López Álvarez, David; Martín Escofet, Carme; Vidal López, Eva María; Bragós Bardia, Ramon (Asociación de Enseñantes Universitarios de la Informática (AENUI), 2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    En el año 2009, la Facultat d’Informàtica de Barcelona introdujo la sostenibilidad como una competen-cia transversal dentro de sus estudios de Grado en Ingeniería Informática. Han pasado once años desde entonces, y la forma ...
