Short Description: The Automation Laboratory (AL) belongs to the Systems Division. The lab performs research and educational activities.
The lab’s research areas include: Control Theory—Control of distributed parameter systems, control of delay systems, nonlinear control, adaptive control, control of switched systems, learning control systems. Applications—Traffic flow control and estimation, control of connected and automated vehicles, biological systems, smart buildings, engine control, oil drilling, networked control systems, robotics, energy systems, fluid flow control, and aircraft control.
The lab’s educational activities are related to control of dynamical systems courses. The Laboratory has complete training equipment in automatic control (e.g. Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's), PID’s, modern measurement systems connected to PC, simulated control systems), 10 positions. It also has real systems e.g. motor – generator set, thermal systems, servo systems with tachogenerator etc.
