Air management process in a turbocharged diesel engine is a multivariable, highly coupled nonlinear system with fast dynamics. Because of this, control algorithms with reasonably low computation times (enabling real time application) must be used. Furthermore, testing of new algorithms on a real engine is expensive. Therefore, a detailed non-linear engine(More)
An exhaustive study has been made into the potential improvement in attenuation and focusing of phononic crystal arrays resulting from the deliberate creation of vacancies. Use is made of a stochastic search algorithm based on evolutionary algorithms called the epsilon variable multi-objective genetic algorithm which, in conjunction with the application of(More)
MPC (Model Predictive Control) based on linear models is an extensively used methodology in the industrial field as a control solution for MIMO processes. The identification of ARX models for multivariable systems from input-output data often requires the use of LVMs (Latent Variable Methods) such as PCR (Principal Components Regression) or PLS (Partial(More)
