The module is based on knowledge achieved from the courses in Non-linear Control and Reliability and System Identification and Diagnosis.
Problem based project organised work in groups.
The project can be made in cooperation with external partners and the project can be a disciplinary project, a cross disciplinary project or a part of a multi-disciplinary project, where several groups from the department do different parts of a larger project. Finally, the project can also be a part of a so-called MEGA project also in cooperation with industry, where several project groups from more departments are participating, each doing their part of the large project to find a total solution.
The project work must be 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 summary report (report without appendices) is 50 pages. For more information see semester description in Moodle.
The scientific paper will be presented at a conference arranged within the Department of Energy, prior to the project examination.
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.
If there are special technical or scientific documentation requirements, the student documents the project work in a project report, which can be prepared individually or in a group within the project theme. However, the student’s special preferences for the semester must be approved by the Study Board in advance.
Since it is a 20 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 600 hours for the student.
