The UGR creates a heat model to study temperature control in closed spaces

10.11.2006
A practical teaching experience of real-time control of a heat model, using the Simulin-Matlab environment, is the result of a teaching innovation project, coordinated by teacher Olivares Ruiz, of Systems and Automatic Computing.

Patrick Walaschewski, student of the German University of Dortmund, and the teachers of the Dpt. of Computer Architecture y Technology of the University fof Granada Miguel Damas Hermoso, Ignacio Rojas Ruiz, Francisco Gómez Mula, Héctor Palomares Cintas, Moisés Salmerón Campos and Francisco Pelayo Valle take part in the project, passed by the Vice-Rectorate for Planning, Quality and Academic Evaluation of the UGR [http://www.ugr.es].

According to the persons in charge of the project, “from a model depicting a room of a house on a small scale different control techniques have been implemented to regulate the internal temperature with the contribution of a heat source (scale simulation of a climatic control system of a house)”.

This experience, although it was different in many aspects, was started some years ago without using the currently available tools. A different model was used then (a hydraulic model) with data acquisition cards and software (without simulators); the transference function and control tests were validated.

According to the persons responsible for the project, “the general goal is to prove that how a theoretical model of a heat process can be carried out and verify it experimentally, comparing its theoretical and experimental behaviour under classic control systems PID and fuzzy”.

At the same time, the student will be able, with this experience, to check by himself the validity of the theoretical assumptions, as well as using the main tools currently used in the control of industrial processes.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
