Design of a Self-Tuning Regulator for Temperature Control of a Polymerization Reactor

Abstract: The temperature control of a polymerization reactor described by Chylla and Haase, a control engineering benchmark problem, is used to illustrate the potential of adaptive control design by employing a self-tuning regulator concept. In the benchmark scenario, the operation of the reactor must be guaranteed under various disturbing influences, e.g., changing ambient temperatures or impurity […]

Infographic: Tune Your (LinkedIn) Loop

Survey after survey of industrial engineers confirms LinkedIn is the social media platform of choice. According to IEEE Engineering360, more than 65 percent of engineers say they are active on LinkedIn. Facebook was next up, at 48 percent, followed by Google Plus (32 percent) and YouTube (27 percent). It makes sense. Facebook may have a […]

Position Control of a Servo-Hydraulic Rotary Actuator Via a Neurobiologically Motivated Algorithm

Abstract: This paper presents a new intelligent approach for adaptive control of a nonlinear dynamic system. A modified version of the brain emotional learning based intelligent controller (BELBIC), a bio-inspired algorithm based upon a computational model of emotional learning which occurs in the amygdala, is utilized for position controlling a real laboratorial rotary electro-hydraulic servo (EHS) […]

Protecting Airport Power with Automatic Transfer Switches

Singapore’s Changi Airport is the 18th busiest in the world. In 2014, it served more than 40 million passengers and 1.8 million tons of air freight. Airport systems are critical nerve centers of the global economy, and it is important that they keep running, regardless of power outages or power disruptions. Airports rely on backup […]

A Portable Hardware-In-The-Loop Device for Automotive Diagnostic Control Systems

Abstract: In-vehicle driving tests for evaluating the performance and diagnostic functionalities of engine control systems are often time consuming, expensive, and not reproducible. Using a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation approach, new control strategies and diagnostic functions on a controller area network (CAN) line can be easily tested in real time, in order to reduce the effort and […]

How to Live Stream Any Meeting or Event Worldwide (Almost) for Free

ISA has more than 150 sections located throughout the world (you can find a local ISA section by going here.) Local sections are a great way to connect and network with colleagues via regularly scheduled meetings, section-sponsored technical education sessions, special programs, and professional networking events. But some sections cover a wide geographic area, notes […]
