Data-driven control without using mathematical models is a promising research direction for urban traffic control due to the massive amounts of traffic data generated every day. This article proposes a novel distributed model-free adaptive predictive control (D-MFAPC) approach for multiregion urban traffic networks. More specifically, the...

This article addresses the continuous-time distributed optimization of a strictly convex summation-separable cost function with possibly nonconvex local functions over strongly connected digraphs. Distributed optimization methods in the literature require convexity of local functions, or balanced weights, or vanishing step sizes, or algebraic...

Dynamic Induction Control (DIC) is a novel, exciting branch of Wind Farm Control. It makes use of time-varying control inputs to increase wake mixing, and consequently improve the velocity recovery rate of the flow and the power production of downstream turbines. The Pulse and the Helix are two promising DIC strategies that rely on sinusoidal...

Railways are a well-recognized sustainable transportation mode that helps to satisfy the continuously growing mobility demand. However, the management of railway traffic in large-scale networks is a challenging task, especially when both a major disruption and various disturbances occur simultaneously. We propose an automatic rescheduling...

Accurate image alignment is critical in multicolor single-molecule fluorescence microscopy. Global alignment using affine transformations leaves residual errors due to the nonlinearity of the distortions, which decreases the effective field of view. Subsequent local refinement demands either large amounts of reference data and processing time...

In this paper, the time-varying formation and time-varying formation tracking problems are solved for linear multi-agent systems over digraphs without the knowledge of the eigenvalues of the Laplacian matrix associated to the digraph. The solution to these problems relies on an approach that generalizes the directed spanning tree adaptive...

Fault location algorithms for transmission lines use the parameters of the transmission line to locate faults after the faults have occurred along the line. Although these parameters can be estimated by the phasor measurement units (PMUs) at the terminal(s) of the transmission line continuously, the uncertainty in the measurements will give...

To correct grid imbalances and avoid grid failures, the transmission system operator (TSO) deploys balancing reserves and settles these imbalances by penalizing the market actors that caused them. In several countries, it is forbidden to influence the grid imbalances in order to let the TSO retain full control of grid regulation. In this...

This paper proposes a novel adaptive fuzzy dynamic surface control (DSC) method for an extended class of periodically disturbed strict-feedback nonlinear systems. The peculiarity of this extended class is that the control gain functions are not bounded a priori but simply taken to be continuous and with a known sign. In contrast with existing...

The objective of this paper is to provide a concise introduction to the max-plus algebra and to max-plus linear discrete-event systems. We present the basic concepts of the max-plus algebra and explain how it can be used to model a specific class of discrete-event systems with synchronization but no concurrency. Such systems are called max...

Positive systems with positive inputs and positive outputs are used in several branches of engineering, biochemistry, and economics. Both control theory and system theory require the concept of reachability of a time-invariant discrete-time linear positive system. The subset of the state set that is reachable from the origin is therefore of...

In this paper we discuss scheduling of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems, for which the set of operations may vary over a limited set of possible sequences of operations. We introduce a unified modeling framework in which different types of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems can be described by switching max-plus linear (SMPL) models. We use...

Distributing water optimally is a complex problem that many farmers face yearly, especially in times of drought. In this work, we propose optimization‐based feedback control to improve crop yield and water productivity in agriculture irrigation for a plantation consisting of multiple fields. The interaction between soil, water, crop (sugarcane...

A microgrid in the islanded mode is considered where a fleet of fuel cell cars is used as a distributed power generation system. The objective of the proposed control system is to minimize the operational cost of the system, subject to the physical and operational constraints of the system. In order to deal with uncertainty in the prediction...

Power outages in electrical grids can have very negative economic and societal impacts rendering fault diagnosis paramount to their secure and reliable operation. In this paper, deep neural networks are proposed for fault detection and location in low-voltage smart distribution grids. Due to its key properties, the proposed method solves some...

Scenario-based methods for the assessment of Automated Vehicles (AVs) are widely supported by many players in the automotive field. Scenarios captured from real-world data can be used to define the scenarios for the assessment and to estimate their relevance. Therefore, different techniques are proposed for capturing scenarios from real-world...

In the context of building heating systems control in office buildings, the current state-of-the-art applies either a deterministic Model Predictive Control (MPC) controller together with a nonlinear model, or a linearized model with a stochastic MPC controller. Deterministic MPC considers only one realization of the external disturbances,...

The lack of measurements in distribution grids poses a severe challenge for their monitoring: Since there may not be enough sensors to achieve numerical observability, so load forecasts (pseudo-measurements) are typically used, and thus an accurate state estimation is not guaranteed. However, estimation is required to control distribution...

We develop a multi-level decision making approach for optimal condition-based maintenance planning of a railway network divided into a large number of sections with independent stochastic deterioration dynamics. At higher level, a chance-constrained Model Predictive Control (MPC) controller determines the long-term section-wise maintenance...

We develop a Model Predictive Control (MPC) approach for condition-based maintenance planning under uncertainty for railway infrastructure systems composed of multiple components. Piecewise-affine models with uncertain parameters are used to capture both the nonlinearity and uncertainties in the deterioration process. To keep a balance...
