  • Control Engineering


Modern society is critically dependent on large-scale networks for services such as energy supply, transportation and communications. The design and control of such networks is becoming increasingly complex, due to their growing size, heterogeneity and autonomy. A systematic theory and methodology for control of large-scale interconnected systems is therefore needed. In an ambitious effort towards this goal, this project will address the following key aspects:

• Modeling by leveraging tools from learning and adaption
• Control design by utilizing structural properties of the system
• Verification of system performance using decomposable certificates

Energy networks (electricity and district heating) will be used as a guiding example for the development of theory and methodology. Close collaboration with industrial partners will ensure that the research is relevant and useful in practice.
