Development of Efficient and Robust Controllers for Advanced Energy Systems (DECADE)
Start date: Apr 1, 2009, End date: Mar 31, 2013 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"The main objective of the DECADE proposal is to promote a significant increase in the range of energy control problems to which advanced optimisation-based control can be reliably applied. This will be achieved through the development of an electronic look-up function tailor-made for the specific energy systems. It can retrofit onto existing control hardware, or on new hardware. The above objectives will be achieved by promoting and implementing a well structured ToK programme between (i) academic partners (University of Western Macedonia (UOWM, Greece), and University of Pannonia (UNIPAN, Hungary)), with distinguished research activities in the areas of process and energy modelling, simulation and optimisation techniques including pilot plant demonstrations, (ii) one high-tech SME (Parametric Optimization Solutions, ParOS, UK) providing advanced control solutions to the energy, process and automation industries and (iii) one engineering SME (ESTIA, Greece) providing energy saving solutions (Combined Heat and Power, Fuel Cells, etc) and related instrumentation facilities in the process, energy and power industries."
