      Singh, Mehtab; Pottoo, Sahil Nazir; Armghan, Ammar; Aliqab, Khaled; Alsharari, Meshari; Abd El-Mottaleb, Somia A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-11-04)
      This paper presents a novel 160 Gbps free space optics (FSO) communication system for 6G applications. Polarization division multiplexing (PDM) is integrated with an optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) technique to form a PDM-OCDMA hybrid. There are two polarization states: one is X-polarization generated from adjusting the azimuthal angle of a light source at 0° while the other is ...
    • Adaptive Backstepping Control for a Fully-Actuated Rigid-Body in a Dual-Quaternion Framework 

      Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2020-03-12)
      We address the trajectory tracking problem for a fully actuated rigid-body with unknown mass and inertia parameters and unknown disturbance forces, using an adaptive backstepping controller based on dual-quaternions. We show that the proposed controller, in closed loop with a nonlinear model of the system, renders the equilibrium points uniformly asymptotically stable. The proposed controller ...

    • Ant colony optimization and analysis of time step resolution in transmission expansion computations for wind power integration 

      Fuchs, Ida; Gjengedal, Terje (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2011)
      This paper investigates the necessary time step resolution in a transmission expansion planning algorithm based on ant colony optimization. A maximal and efficient wind power integration is the main motivation for the grid expansion, which requires a planning tool dealing with wind energy fluctuations. For the analysis a power system model for the Nordic area is used, including a wind power ...

      Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne (Peer reviewed; Bok; Book; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2017-02)
      The present paper investigates engineering students` own descriptions of what they mean by learning of linear algebra and how they know that they have learned something. I seek to extract keywords from engineering students` descriptions of learning of this discipline by drawing on grounded theory techniques and classifying the answers in conceptual and procedural approaches. By this, both detailed ...

    • Bio‐inspired hybrid BFOA‐PSO algorithm‐based reactive power controller in a standalone wind‐diesel power system 

      Wagle, Raju; Sharma, Pawan; Charu, Sharma; Gjengedal, Terje; PRADHAN, CHITTARANJAN (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-01-05)
      With an increase in the penetration of renewable energy sources such as wind into the power systems, the operation and control of voltage/reactive power have become more complicated and challenging than ever. As a result, the reactive power imbalance between reactive power generation and demand instigates a reduction in system voltage stability. To deal with the aforesaid scenarios, automatic voltage ...
    • Cascade-Based Controlled Attitude Synchronization and Tracking of Spacecraft in Leader-Follower Formation 

      Schlanbusch, Rune; Nicklasson, Per Johan; Loria, Antonio (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2011)
    • Cascade-Based Controlled Attitude Synchronization and Tracking of Spacecraft in Leader-Follower Formation 

      Schlanbusch, Rune; Loria, Antonio; Nicklasson, Per Johan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011-05-05)
      We propose controllers for leader-follower attitude synchronization of spacecraft formations in the presence of disturbances, that is, the leader spacecraft is controlled to follow a given reference, while a follower spacecraft is controlled to synchronize its motion with the leader’s. In the ideal disturbance-free scenario, we show that synchronization takes place asymptotically. Moreover, we ...
    • Cascaded Model Predictive Control of Grid Connected Converter with LCL Filter 

      Hoff, Bjarte (Peer reviewed; Book; Chapter, 2018-12-31)
      This paper presents a control strategy for grid connected voltage source converters with LCL filter, based on a cascade of two model predictive controllers (MPC). Despite the attention MPC has received in the research community over the last years, there are still raised question about what advantages such control methods can offer, compared to existing established control strategies. The cascaded ...
    • Characteristics of fragmented aurora-like emissions (FAEs) observed on Svalbard 

      Dreyer, Joshua; Partamies, Noora; Whiter, Daniel; Ellingsen, Pål Gunnar; Baddeley, Lisa; Buchert, Stephan C. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-04)
      This study analyses the observations of a new type of small-scale aurora-like feature, which is further referred to as fragmented aurora-like emission(s) (FAEs). An all-sky camera captured these FAEs on three separate occasions in 2015 and 2017 at the Kjell Henriksen Observatory near the arctic town of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway. A total of 305 FAE candidates were identified. They seem to appear ...

    • A Class-E-Based Resonant AC-DC Converter With Inherent PFC Capability 

      Al-Sallami, Hussein; M. Ammar, Ahmed; Nour, Yasser; A. E. Andersen, Michael (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-22)
      This paper investigates the use of the class-E inverter for power factor correction (PFC) applications. Analytical and state-space models are derived showing the class-E inverter’s capability of achieving inherent PFC operation with a constant duty cycle. The inherent PFC operation limits the controller responsibility to the regulation of the output voltage, which is key for resonant converters with ...

      This paper presents several different control structures that facilitate flight control and does a comparison between them. Specifically, this paper considers command-filtered backstepping, nonlinear dynamic inversion (NDI), and a new decoupled approach that decouples the rotational and translational dynamics by estimating the higher order derivatives of the angle of attack and sideslip angle. The ...
    • A computational intelligence-based maximum power point tracking for photovoltaic power generation system with small‐signal analysis 

      Senapati, Manoj Kumar; Pradhan, Chittaranjan; Calay, Rajnish Kaur (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-01)
      There are multiple peak functions in its output power characteristic curve of a photovoltaic (PV) array under partial shading conditions (PSCs), the perturb and observe (P&O) may fail to track the global maximum power point (GMPP). Therefore, a reliable maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique is essential to track the GMPP within an appropriate time. This article proposes a hybrid technique ...

      We address the problem of state feedback translational motion control of a spacecraft formation through a modified sliding surface controller using variable gains and I^2 action for disturbance rejection. The exponential varying gains ensure faster convergence of the state trajectories during attitude maneuver while keeping the gains small (and the system less stiff) for station keeping. Integral ...

      Oland, Espen; Kristiansen, Raymond (Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019-10-24)
      This paper shows how to control a chain of integrators with constrained actuation by using exponential activation functions. Specifically, it shows how the control law can be decomposed into several parts that can be activated as they are required, resulting in a simple control law that is able to make the states converge fast to zero.
