NEXT LAUNCH OF CALL 2018

 

Development of control algorithms and Machine Learning Control techniques for mechatronic systems

START: 09/2018

OPEN
The PhD work offered is located in the Advanced Control specialization team belonging to the Control and Monitoring knowledge area. The team"s research line focuses on the dynamic modelling of mechatronic systems and the design and implementation of advanced solutions for the control of these systems. Most of the projects usually cover the whole development chain, starting from the modelling of the system to be controlled, through the design of the algorithms, their verification by means...

Models of hardening simulation by induction for improvement of components in the renewable energy sector

START: 09/2018

OPEN
The offered thesis is part of the renewable energy sector, in which the reliability of the systems is a key point of competitiveness. The improvement of the reliability of the components is linked to the correct estimation of the state of the pieces due to the manufacturing process to improve their mechanical properties. The main objective is to develop simulation models to calculate the residual stresses generated in the process of induction hardening. These stresses affect...

Dynamic simulation of complex multi-body systems

START: 09/2018

OPEN
General framework and objectives A Multibody System is a mechanical model of a set of bodies, also called elements or links, which can in turn be rigid or flexible, interconnected in such a way that there is relative movement between them. It is therefore a very general term that encompasses a large number of systems, among which can be mentioned mechanisms, machines, vehicles of all kinds, and robots. The Dynamics of Multibody Systems is the theory that allows the kinematic...

Low emission hydrogen burners for domestic boilers

START: 09/2018

OPEN
Today the possibility of using hydrogen, H2, as an energy vector is of interest to those responsible for public and governmental policies in Europe. The expected shortage of fossil fuels and the fear of climatic changes induced by global warming by greenhouse gases are leading to an increase in the installed capacity of renewable energy. Given this scenario, the use of hydrogen is seen as one of the energy storage systems during periods of overproduction, leading to a progressive hydrogenation...

Smart Systems for Harsh Enviroment

OPEN
General framework In the current industrial context, the creation of autonomous microsystems for industrial environments is key in the positioning of the industry within the new strategy of the Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT).  Its integration will have a broad impact on the creation of new products, business models and services in the cloud. These new elements require increasingly smaller systems (miniaturised), with more features...
