Abstract [en]

This article considers a low-cost and light weight platform for the task of autonomous flying for inspection in underground mine tunnels. The main contribution of this paper is integrating simple, efficient and well-established methods in the computer vision community in a state of the art vision-based system for Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV) navigation in dark tunnels. These methods include Otsu's threshold and Moore-Neighborhood object tracing. The vision system can detect the position of low-illuminated tunnels in image frame by exploiting the inherent darkness in the longitudinal direction. In the sequel, it is converted from the pixel coordinates to the heading rate command of the MAV for adjusting the heading towards the center of the tunnel. The efficacy of the proposed framework has been evaluated in multiple experimental field trials in an underground mine in Sweden, thus demonstrating the capability of low-cost and resource-constrained aerial vehicles to fly autonomously through tunnel confined spaces.

Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the guided and automatic control configuration selection in large scale complex systems. Due to the trend of increasesd level of automation and connectedness which is promoted by the Industry 4.0 strategy and supported by technologies relating to cyber-physical systems and the industrial internet of things, selecting appropriate control strategies becomes increasingly important and complex. This is especially important as a control strategies will limit the achievable performance of the process system, and there are  trade-offs between complexity of the control strategies, achievable performance, vulnerability and maintainability.

The paper reviews the state of the art of methodologies that support the practitioners in taking decisions on control strategies, where two main approaches are considered, the guided one and a fully automatic one. It is shown how both approached can be conducted and examples are used to clarify the selection process.

In this scenario, there are trade-offs between simplicity of the control configurations, achievable performance, vulnerability and maintainability. The paper reviews different state of the art tools before integrating them in guidelines and in automatic methods that support the practitioners in the design on control configurations.

Abstract [en]

This paper proposes an automated pairing approach for configuration selection of decentralized controllers which considers system uncertainties. Following the Relative Interaction Array (RIA) pairing rules, the optimal control configuration, i.e. the configuration that fits best the pairing rules, is obtained automatically by formulating the control configuration selection problem as an Assignment Problem (AP). In this AP, the associated costs related to each input-output pairing are given by the RIA coefficients. The Push-Pull algorithm is used to solve the AP for the nominal system and to obtain the set of costs for which the resulting configuration remains optimal, also called the perturbation set. The introduction of uncertainty bounds on the RIA-based costs enables the testing of the possible violation of the optimality conditions. Examples to illustrate the proposed approach for a 3×3 system and 4×4 gasifier plant are given.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to present an example of a novel cloud computing infrastructure for big data analytics in the Process Control Industry. Latest innovations in the field of Process Analyzer Techniques (PAT), big data and wireless technologies have created a new environment in which almost all stages of the industrial process can be recorded and utilized, not only for safety, but also for real time optimization. Based on analysis of historical sensor data, machine learning based optimization models can be developed and deployed in real time closed control loops. However, still the local implementation of those systems requires a huge investment in hardware and software, as a direct result of the big data nature of sensors data being recorded continuously. The current technological advancements in cloud computing for big data processing, open new opportunities for the industry, while acting as an enabler for a significant reduction in costs, making the technology available to plants of all sizes. The main contribution of this article stems from the presentation for a fist time ever of a pilot cloud based architecture for the application of a data driven modeling and optimal control configuration for the field of Process Control. As it will be presented, these developments have been carried in close relationship with the process industry and pave a way for a generalized application of the cloud based approaches, towards the future of Industry 4.0

Abstract [en]

The steel industry involves energy-intensive processessuch as combustion processes whose accurate modellingvia first principles is both challenging and unlikely to leadto accurate models let alone cast time-varying dynamics anddescribe the inevitable wear and tear. In this paper we addressthe main objective which is the reduction of energy consumptionand emissions along with the enhancement of the autonomy ofthe controlled process by online modelling and uncertaintyawarepredictive control. We propose a risk-sensitive modelselection procedure which makes use of the modern theoryof risk measures and obtain dynamical models using processdata from our experimental setting: a walking beam furnaceat Swerea MEFOS. We use a scenario-based model predictivecontroller to track given temperature references at the threeheating zones of the furnace and we train a classifier whichpredicts possible drops in the excess of Oxygen in each heatingzone below acceptable levels. This information is then used torecalibrate the controller in order to maintain a high qualityof combustion, therefore, higher thermal efficiency and loweremissions

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to introduce a novel sparse controller design for the temperature control of an experimental walking beam furnace in steel industry. Adequate tracking of temperature references is essential for the quality of the heated slabs. However, the design of the temperature control is hindered by the multivariable (non-square) dynamic behavior of the furnace. These dynamics include significant loop interactions and time delays. Furthermore, a novel data-driven model, based on real life experimental data that relies on a subspace state representation in a closed loop approach is introduced. In the sequel, the derived model is utilized to investigate the controller's structure. By applying the relative gain array approach a decentralized feedback controller is designed. However, in spite of the optimal and sparse design of the controller, there exists interaction between loops. By analyzing the interaction between the inputs-outputs with the Σ2 Gramian-based interaction methodology, a decoupled multi-variable controller is implied. The simulation result, based on the experimental modeling of the furnace, shows that the controller can successfully decrease the interaction between the loops and track the reference temperature set-points.

Abstract [en]

This technical report provides supplementary materialto the research paper entitled ”On Guided and AutomaticControl Configuration Selection”, presented at the ETFA 2017.In that paper, different Control Configuration Selection (CCS)tools are reviewed and integrated into guided and automaticCCS methodologies. The guided CCS is a heuristic step-by-stepmethodology to be applied by practitioners, while the automaticCCS methodologies target the adaptation of such heuristicsinto algorithms which can be run in a computer and assist thepractitioners in the decision making. This report summarizesthe results of applying the introduced methodologies to a reallifeprocess: the Secondary Heating System. For an introductorybackground, preliminaries, and details on the methodologies,the reader is referred to the original research paper.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a complete method for automatic and robust control configuration selection for linear systems which relies upon acquired process data under gaussian noise excitation.

The selection of the configuration  is based on the estimation of the Interaction Measure named Participation Matrix. This estimation is derived with uncertainty bounds, which allows to  determine online whether the uncertainty is sufficiently low to derive a robust decision on the control configuration to be used or if the uncertainty should be reduced  by e.g. prolonging the experiment to obtain more data.
