  • Minrui Fei – 02/11/2013
    This seminar first introduces the research environment in Shanghai University, School of
    Mechatronics Engineering and Automation, and Shanghai Key Laboratory of Power Station Automation Technology. Then, the background and challenges in networked control system
    theory, method, implementation, including hybrid wired/wireless industrial control networks
    and application are briefly discussed. The seminar focuses on six research topics in our work,
    including: (a) Networked control systems (NCS) and a novel networked control system —
    networked learning control system (NLCS); (b) Industrial wireless short-range monitoring
    network; (c) The integration of hybrid industrial control network; (d) Platform for measurement
    and control system; (e) Performance Testing and Evaluation; (f) Application in sewage treatment
    and cold rolling plant, and the future work.

    Benchmarking a 512-qubit Vesuvius processor
    Vesuvius is a superconducting processor designed to solve quadratic unconstrained binary
    optimization problems using a quantum algorithm. In this talk, I will describe the D-Wave Two quantum computer, and the Vesuvius processor itself. I will then describe a benchmarking
    procedure we use to test the performance of the processor and show preliminary results.

    REDS: Residential Energy Data Simulations
    Load research has been performed in the past with the goal to help utilities understand their
    customers’ consumption habits. Lately, it is more imperative to perform load research with view
    to energy sustainability initiatives worldwide. One of the most compelling goals of load research
    is to balance the demand/supply of energy. We propose methods for load balancing introducing queuing theory and stochastic process approaches. Our goals are to provide better understanding
    and robust modeling of load by using novel techniques inspired by queuing networks analysis,
    Markov models, and simulation.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
