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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

A single-level rule-based model predictive control (RBMPC) scheme is presented for optimizing the energy management of a grid-connected microgrid composed of local production units, renewable energy sources, local loads, and several types of energy storage systems (ESSs). The single-level controller uses two different models that yield different...

In recent years, the European Union (EU) has set ambitious targets toward a carbon-free energy transition. Many studies show that a drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions-at least 90% by 2050-is required. In the transition toward a sustainable energy system, solar (or green) hydrogen plays many important roles, as it is a clean and safe...

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,...

Due to the increasing integration of renewable sources in the electrical grid, electricity generation is expected to become more uncertain. In this context, seasonal thermal energy storage systems (STESSs) are key to shift the delivery of renewable energy sources and tackle their uncertainty problems. In this paper, we propose an optimal...

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...

Objective: The amount of collected field data from naturalistic driving studies is quickly increasing. The data are used for, among others, developing automated driving technologies (such as crash avoidance systems), studying driver interaction with such technologies, and gaining insights into the variety of scenarios in real-world traffic....

To mitigate the effects of the intermittent generation of renewable energy sources, reliable and efficient energy storage is critical. Since nearly 80% of households energy consumption is destined to water and space heating, thermal energy storage is particularly important. In this context, we propose and validate a new model for one of the...

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...

In this paper we consider the problem of State Estimation (SE) in large-scale, 3-phase coupled, unbalanced distribution systems. More specifically, we address the problem of including mixed real-time measurements, synchronized and unsynchronized, from phasor measurement units and smart meters, into existing SE solutions. We propose a...

In recent years, as the share of solar power in the electrical grid has been increasing, accurate methods for forecasting solar irradiance have become necessary to manage the electrical grid. More specifically, as solar generators are geographically dispersed, it is very important to have general models that can predict solar irradiance without...

The linear control of doubly-fed induction machines in wind power systems normally encounters the problems in variations of the rotor mechanical angular speed and other time-varying parameters. However, better performance requirements against changes in the machine parameters and exogenous inputs are desired. This can be achieved by appropriate...

In this thesis, we develop efficient predictive model-based control approaches, including model-predictive control (MPC) andmodel-based fuzzy control, for application in urban traffic networks with the aim of reducing a combination of the total time spent by the vehicles within the network and the total emissions. The thesis includes three main...

Fundamental macroscopic traffic variables (flow, density, and average speed) have been defined in two ways: classical (defined as either temporal or spatial averages) and generalized (defined as temporal-spatial averages). In the available literature, estimation of the generalized variables is still missing. This paper proposes a new...
