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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
