Closed-loop control of separated flows is still hindered by a lack of fast and practical sensors for the measurement of the length of a separation bubble or of the position of reattachment. Therefore, a new real-time algorithm for the online detection of flow states is developed to overcome this limitation. For a model-based sensor microphone measurements(More)
Active control of separated flows has become a major challenge in recent years. Whereas most of the work published so far is based on simulation studies this paper gives an example of a successful application of a multivariable closed-loop flow control in wind tunnel experiments. A robust H ∞-controller is used to control the spanwise reattachment length(More)
Closed-loop flow control is gaining more and more interest in the last few years. Whereas most of the published results are based on simulation studies, this work explores the synthesis of black-box model based closed-loop controllers for separated, wall-bounded shear flows in experiments. In this paper we compare a linear robust controller with a flatness(More)
Although highly desirable, a mechanistic explanation for the outstanding protein secretion capabilities of fungi such as Aspergilli is missing. As a result, a rational and predictive design of strains as cell factories for protein production is still out of reach. The analysis of the secretion apparatus is not only hampered by open issues concerning(More)
