U sklopu provedbe projekta Dinamička prediktivna zaštita integriteta baterije električnog vozila (akronim EVBattPredtect ) prijavitelj Sveučilište u Zagrebu Fakultet elektrotehnike i računarstva te partner Rimac Technology d.o.o. organiziraju informativnu radionicu o rezultatima projekta. Informativna radionica održat će se u četvrtak 7. prosinca 2023. s početkom u 11:00 sati na adresi Rimac Technology, Savska Opatovina 36, Zagreb.
Projekt EVBattPredtect usmjeren je na razvoj modela baterijskih članaka za baterijski paket automobila, geometrijsku karakterizaciju stanja članka i profila struje ili snage punjenja/pražnjenja članka koji su sigurni za primjenu radi očuvanja sigurnog rada i dugovječnosti članka te njenu on-line primjenu u kombinaciji sa sustavom upravljanja dinamikom vozila. Projekt sufinancira Europska unija iz Europskog fonda za regionalni razvoj kroz Operativni program konkurentnost i kohezja 2014-20.
Sudjelovanje na radionici otvoreno je za sve, ali je broj sudionika ograničen. Stoga molimo najavu dolaska najkasnije do utorka 5. prosinca 2023. u 15:00 putem sljedećeg registracijskog obrasca te ćemo Vas povratno kontaktirati.
U nastavku obavijesti dana je agenda radionice. Radujemo se Vašem dolasku!
LARES research team published an article " Simple and Accurate Model of Thermal Storage with Phase Change Material Tailored for Model Predictive Control " - Vrbanc, Filip; Vašak, Mario; Lešić, Vinko, in Energies, an open access scientific journal. The paper presents a novel modelling approach for thermal heat storage with phase-change material based on mixed integer linear program.
You can download the article freely on the journal web.
IFAC 2023 – The 22nd World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control took place in Yokohama, Japan from 9th - 14th July 2023.
Assoc. Prof. Vinko Lešić, PhD presented SmartCityLight project results in the paper: “ Model Predictive Control of Street Lighting based on Spatial Points of Interest ” by Husam I. Shaheen, Marina Gapit, Sruthy Gireesan and Vinko Lešić.
Ana Martinović, MSc and Marina Gapit, MSc , both researchers on the SCL project, participated on "Distributed Control, Optimization and Learning for Network Systems" workshop where various optimization algorithms, and optimization methods used for performance improvement of control systems have been researched and analysed.
Ana Martinović, MSc and Marina Gapit, MSc , researchers on the SCL project participated in " Learning-Based Predictive Control " course held at ETH Zürich, Switzerland from 26th - 30th June, 2023. The course is a part of the " International Graduate School on Control " organized by European Embedded Control Institute (EECI).
The course was held by Prof. Melanie N. Zeilinger from the ETH Zürich and Prof. Lorenzo Fagiano from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. After a brief review of fundamentals of MPC, the course presented an overview of existing learning-based MPC methods, followed by a deep-dive into theory and applications of selected techniques for different problem settings.
SCL team participated in the 21st European Control Conference (ECC2023) held in Bucharest, Romania. Assoc. Prof. Vinko Lešić, PhD presented the paper: “ Distributed Street lighting Model Predictive Control based on Spatial Points of Interest ” by Husam Shaheen, Vinko Lešić, Marina Gapit and Sruthy Gireesan.
The paper is available at IEEEXplore .
In addition, 2 young researchers on the project, Ana Martinović, MSc and Marina Gapit, MSc participated in " Concurrent Learning and Optimization for Nonconvex Constrained Problems – A Set Membership approach " workshop held by prof. Lorenzo Fagiano from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
Our LARES research team published two articles in IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, a prestigious IEEE scientific journal.
The first article "Data-Driven Modeling of Urban Traffic Travel Times for Short-and Long-Term Forecasting" - H. Novak, F. Bronić, A. Kolak, Vinko Lešić, compares data-driven statistical and machine learning approaches for urban traffic travel times forecasting which is of critical importance for efficient supply chain logistics and accurate navigation services. A detailed analysis of the available historical data is performed, including historical floating car data for a one-year period. The ariticle can be found here .
The second article "Aggregated Representation of Electric Vehicles Population on Charging Points for Demand Response Scheduling" - M. Kovačević and M. Vašak, proposes a method to represent a population of electric vehicles that on the one hand enables prediction via machine learning and on the other it enables an accurate optimization of the charging schedule and demand response ability. The article is available for download through open access on this link .
On June 29 and June 30, 2023, we held an ADRION TRAINEE Open days in the Great Hall of University of Zagreb - Study programme of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Sources in Šibenik . In it we presented to the students with multidisciplinary competencies that they will be able to develop by attending this joint graduate study. We also invited them to help us design the best possible study program with their ideas and suggestion. We also asked them to fill out the questionnaire that will help us better understand their needs and tailor the master concept accordingly.
We thank the S tudy programme of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Sources for encouraging all those interested in participation of the Open days.
You can find the presentation from the event here and here and here .
Prof. Mario Vašak was a speaker at the Solar Energy 2023, Seminar on Possibilities of Renewable Energy Sources Implementation . He participated in the 2nd Thematic Section: PROJECTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS where he presented a new project in LARES “ADRION TRANSNATIONAL MASTER IN RENEWABLE ENERGY” (ADRION TRAINEE) , supported by the Interreg ADRION Programme, funded under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and IPA II fund. Prof. Vašak invited the present stakeholders to get involved in defining the master concept so that it meets the current and upcoming needs of the sector as well as possible.
The seminar was held in Zagreb, The Antunović Congress Centre, on 18 May 2023.
