Communication-based distributed secondary control is deemed necessary to restore the state of islanding AC microgrids to set points. As its limited global information, the microgrids become vulnerable to cyber-attacks, which by falsifying the communicating singles, like the angular frequency, can disturb the power dispatch in the microgrids...

Fuel consumption reduction in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) powertrains has been an important area of research over the past few decades. HEV powertrains have two energy sources : fuel and battery. The important task of splitting the energy/power demand between both these sources is performed by the Energy Management Systems (EMS). There are...

As demand for clean and renewable energy around the world increases, solar photovoltaic (PV) technology becomes substantially popular, especially in low-voltage (LV) distribution networks. However, the integration of PV in LV distribution networks requires careful planning as it introduces voltage violations. To maintain network voltage,...

This letter proposes a distributed strategy to achieve both persistent monitoring and target detection in a rectangular and obstacle-free environment. Each robot has to repeatedly follow a smooth trajectory and avoid collisions with other robots. To achieve this goal, we rely on the time-inverted Kuramoto dynamics and the use of Lissajous...

We revisit distributed sampled-data consensus problems from a scalability point of view. Existing solutions in the literature for estimating the maximum sampling interval that preserves stability rely on the Lyapunov functional method. With this method, the overall closed-loop system (i.e. the overall network of agents) is treated as a time...

Electric vehicles are a fast-growing market in the automotive sector. In addition, the widespread use of renewable energy to power electric vehicles makes them sustainable, with considerably low greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, service providers are switching to fleets of electric vehicles to promote environmental sustainability. However,...

This thesis provides a set of cooperative control schemes for autonomous multi-vessel systems to manipulate a floating object through physical interconnections in onshore (inland waterways and ports) and offshore areas. Thanks to the maturity and popularity of the advancing technologies in information, communication, sensors, automatic control,...

Road users still encounter unnecessary delays due to inefficient traffic control in urban traffic networks. These delays are ever-increasing and have large environmental and economic consequences. In the Netherlands, most intersections are controlled using actuated controllers, which respond directly to the current traffic demand obtained from...

This work studies logic-based distributed switching control for nonlinear agents in power-chained form, where logic-based (switching) control arises from the online estimation of the control directions assumed to be unknown for all agents. Compared to the state-of-the-art logic-based mechanisms, the challenge of power-chained dynamics is that...

As the penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs) increases significantly in the distribution networks, their integration reshapes distribution system power flows and leads to serious voltage quality problems in distribution networks. In this paper, a novel distributed cooperation voltage regulation method is proposed for future...

Different authors have addressed a number of problems in the area of distributed control proposing convincing solutions to specific problems such as static coverage, dynamic coverage/exploration, rendezvous, flocking, formation control. However, a major limitation of problem-specific approaches is a fundamental lack of flexibility when the...

Distributed secondary control is deemed necessary to restore the state of AC micro-grids to set points. However, for its limited global information, the power electronic system is vulnerable to cyber-attacks that aim to desynchronize converters or even cause a shutdown of micro-grids by unnecessarily triggering the protection schemes. To this...

Power-chained form systems are a generalization of strict-feedback and pure-feedback systems since integrators with positive odd-powers can appear in the dynamics (chain of positive-odd power integrators) and they are extremely challenging to deal with, as their linearized dynamics might possess uncontrollable modes whose eigenvalues are in the...

The demand for faster production times and higher precisions in the industrial automation is ever-increasing. Resonance modes caused by flexural elements in these machines are limiting the maximum bandwidth. Because of this, high-precision motion systems in industrial machines are limited in the maximum operating speed and precision. To improve...

Currently, the majority of the available test feeder models are based on the North American type of distribution systems, leaving an absence of representative feeder models for the European (and Dutch) types of distribution systems. Therefore, a standardized set of power flow models for typical Dutch LV distribution networks is developed using...

In this paper, we present an analysis of the vulnerability of a distributed model predictive control (DMPC) scheme in the context of cyber-security. We consider different types of the so-called insider attacks. In particular, we consider the situation where one of the local controllers sends false information to others to manipulate costs for...

The highly fuel-inefficient aircraft taxi-phase causes the industry to consider alternative ground propulsion systems. External systems like the Taxibot are preferred over onboard systems as they do not require aircraft structural additions and recertifications. However, the operational implementation of external taxi-systems is expected to...

As systems become more lightweight, to satisfy inertia and size requirements, vibration becomes a prominent factor in their dynamics. This vibration is undesirable and various suppression methods exist such as passive, semi-active, and active. In this thesis, active control methods are explored for this purpose. The present technology utilizes...

In this thesis, we consider the problem of controlling multiple autonomous vehicles in a highway scenario, via MPC. By iteratively solving a motion planning OCP, MPC is perfectly suited for unknown dynamic environments, while optimally computing path and vehicle inputs. Moreover, MPC can ensure the satisfaction of collision avoidance constraints...

With the increasing use of wind energy as a power source, new challenges arise. One of these challenges is maintaining a stable power grid. On the power grid, the amount of energy generated and consumed should be in balance. As wind power has an unpredictable and fluctuating nature, it is presumable that its increasing use makes it problematic...
