30 p, 12.8 MB Planar microwave resonant sensors : a review and recent developments / Muñoz Enano, Jonathan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Electrònica) ; Vélez Rasero, Paris (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Electrònica) ; Gil Barba, Marta (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Departamento de Ingeniería Audiovisual y Comunicaciones) ; Martín, Ferran (Martín Antolín) (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Electrònica)
Microwave sensors based on electrically small planar resonant elements are reviewed in this paper. By virtue of the high sensitivity of such resonators to the properties of their surrounding medium, particularly the dielectric constant and the loss factor, these sensors are of special interest (although not exclusive) for dielectric characterization of solids and liquids, and for the measurement of material composition.

Departament de Telecomunicació i Enginyeria de Sistemes) ; Francisco, Mario (Universidad de Salamanca. Departamento de Informática y Automática)
This paper addresses the implementation of economic-oriented model predictive controllers for the dynamic real-time optimization of the operation of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). Both the economic-optimizing controller (pure-EMPC) and the economic-oriented tracking controller (Hybrid-EMPC, or HEMPC) formulations are validated in the benchmark simulation model (BSM1) platform that represents the behavior of a characteristic activated sludge process.

19 p, 852.9 KB Discrete-time first-order plus dead-time model-reference trade-off PID control design / Kurokawa, Ryo (University of Hyogo. Department of Mechanical Engineering) ; Sato, Takao (University of Hyogo. Department of Mechanical Engineering) ; Vilanova i Arbós, Ramon (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Telecomunicació i Enginyeria de Sistemes) ; Konishi, Yasuo (University of Hyogo. Department of Mechanical Engineering)
The present study proposes a novel proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control design method in discrete time. In the proposed method, a PID controller is designed for first-order plus dead-time (FOPDT) systems so that the prescribed robust stability is accomplished. [...]

Departament d'Enginyeria Electrònica) ; Bellentani, Laura (Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia (Itàlia)) ; Villani, Matteo (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Departament d'Enginyeria Electrònica)
Measuring properties of quantum systems is governed by a stochastic (collapse or state-reduction) law that unavoidably yields an uncertainty (variance) associated with the corresponding mean values. This non-classical source of uncertainty is known to be manifested as noise in the electrical current of nanoscale electron devices, and hence it can flaw the good performance of more complex quantum gates.
