Development of Efficient and Robust Controllers for Advanced Energy Systems
The main objective of the DECADE project 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 look-up function takes as input the system measurements and gives as outputs the optimal control action. The resulting control action is identical to what would be achieved using traditional Model Predictive Control (MPC) approaches, but without the computational overhead.
