Received Best Interactive Paper Prize at the IFAC World Congress 2017

Jul 16, 2017

We are very happy to announce that we have been awarded the IFAC Congress Best Interactive Paper Prize at the 2017 IFAC World Congress in Toulouse. Our contribution

Robust adaptive output-feedback tracking control for microalgae cultures by Alexander Schaum, Henning Weisbarth and Thomas Meurer

was thereby selected from 612 papers that were presented in the Interactive Paper category.

In the paper a feedforward-feedback control strategy for trajectory tracking of microalgae cultures is developed and experimentally evaluated. On the basis of the Droop model, an inversion-based feedforward control is determined which steers the biomass from given initial to final values in a finite, prescribed time. Model-free feedback control is employed for disturbance resiliance and improving the stability properties of the desired trajectory. The approach is evaluated using numerical simulations and experiments in a lab-scale photocatalytic reactor with Chlorella sorokiniana.
