Dr. Radoslav Paulen gave a seminar on "Effective recursive parallelotopic bounding for robust output-feedback control" on April 15, 2019 at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The seminar was given on the occasion of Dr. Paulen's visit to the group Applied Mechanics and Energy Conversion Section, Department of Mechanical Engineering, KU Leuven, Belgium. A member of this group Dr. Ján Drgoňa is a PhD graduate from IAM. He currently works on the implementation of predictive control on smart buildings.
PhD-student Petra Artzova visited ShanghaiTech University for two weeks to cooperate on our bilateral research project. There was also organised a scientific seminar, where she presented her research project focused on "Moving-horizon Guaranteed Parameter Estimation".
We have organised Open Labs at IAM on March, 25-29.
Martin Mojto and Radoslav Paulen participated at the Advanced Process Modelling Forum on March 26-27, 2019. The event was organized by Process Systems Enterprise, the developer of simulation and optimization tool gPROMS. Martin Mojto successfully presented a poster "Modelling and Analysis of Control Pairings of an Industrial Depropanizer Column", where he summarized the results of his work in cooperation with the company Slovnaft, a.s.
