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: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
