This coming academic semester we’re hosting webinars from Brigham Young University on applications of optimization and advanced control.  The presentations from last semester are posted online and include topics from:


·         Energy storage optimization of solar fields

·         Temperature control of friction stir welding

·         Virus and biological modeling


The free WebEx webinars are held approximately every two weeks.  The objective is to highlight applications of optimization with dynamic systems including large-scale DAE modeling, parameter estimation, moving horizon estimation, and nonlinear model predictive control.  This coming semester the presentations include:


·         Unmanned Aerial Vehicle control

·         Solid oxide fuel cell modeling and control

·         Optimization with Python scripting language

·         Iceberg position forecasting

·         Thermal oxidizer optimization


A full schedule and pre-registration information can be found on the APMonitor web-site.


Also, if you have a topic that would fit with this series, please let me know so that we can fit you into the presentation schedule for this or coming semesters.
