Control of magnetically suspended rotor combined with motor drive system
This paper presents the cooperative control between the active magnetic bearing system and the permanent magnet synchronous drive. More specifically, the coupling between the vibration control and sensorless drive control ...
Interdependent multi-objective sizing and control optimisation of a renewable energy hydrogen system
This paper presents a sizing and control optimisation architecture for the design and evaluation of a small-scale stand-alone hybrid PV-wind-battery system for the production of hydrogen (H2) using proton exchange membrane ...
Cathodic protection system design framework
The aim of this article is to establish a cathodic protection (CP) system design framework for the petrochemical industry in South Africa. The CP system design framework is destined to be used as a guideline when designing ...
Statistical modelling of an ammonium nitrate fluidised bed granulator for inference measurement
Fluidised bed granulation is a widely used wet granulation technique. The operation of a fluidised bed granulator (FBG) as well as the quality of the product is strongly influenced by multiple process variables and ...
An energy-attributed graph approach for the purposes of FDI in a heated two-tank system
The focus of this paper is the development of attributed graph representations of industrial processes. In this case energy attributes are used since it serves a data reduction purpose and allows for the consideration of ...
Computational cost of an exergy-based fault detection scheme implemented in a commercial process simulator
Energy-based fault detection and isolation (FDI) schemes show promise in terms of applicability to petrochemical industries and the broader process industries. Model-based FDI schemes offer pronounced advantages over more ...
