Problem based project oriented project work in groups. The project work can be done while the student is taking a project oriented study in an external organisation or as a student project work at Aalborg University.
The project must include an application that includes a power electronic converter, a power source and embedded system. The operating principles for the system must be described and a control problem is formulated including key specifications. A dynamic simulation model is made taking the relevant dynamics into account. Different advanced control methods like predictive, adaptive, and robust control strategies or use of artificial intelligence are designed, analysed and evaluated by means of the simulation model. At least one method is selected for practical implementation in a real system incorporating hardware and software and a real‐time digital advanced control system based on a digital signal processor or a microcontroller. Finally, the whole system is tested and the developed control strategies are evaluated with the purpose of verifying the hypothesis, as well as drawing conclusions based on the achieved result.
Since it is a 20 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 600 hours for the student.
|Name of exam||Advanced Control in Industrial Electronics|
|Type of exam|
Oral exam based on a projectOral examination with internal adjudicator based on a project work documented by a scientific paper (max. 8 pages), accompanied by a project summary report.
The project summary report should elaborate the project details and conclusions. The maximum length of the project summary report (report without appendices) is 50 pages, and in addition the project summary report should follow the rules as laid down by the Study Board in “Procedure for Project Work”, i.e. the total number of pages must not exceed 30 + 15 × number of students in the project group.
