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 […]

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 Cloud Computing Delivers a New Industrial Automation Tool for Improving Operations

The terms “cloud” and “cloud computing” have become popular, particularly in discussions about the Internet of Things (IoT). Cloud computing is now being discussed as a technology beneficial for industrial automation. The origin of the term cloud computing is unclear. In some sense, it is descriptive of something off in the distance over the Internet—but […]
