    The basic requirement of biped (two-legged) motion is upright standing, which is inherently a balance-keeping task. The goal of our research is to understand what enables standing in humans and use this insight to develop diagnostics for medical applications. Standing involves a complex balance-keeping control mechanism in the brain. In addition to the brain, the bone frame and muscular system are... View full abstract»

    Batch processing presents several challenges. Increased competition calls for reduced production costs through a higher level of automation; however, chemical producers are expected to employ fewer in-house specialists in many areas, including process control. Technically, the main operational difficulty in batch-process improvement lies in the presence of run-end outputs such as final quality, wh... View full abstract»

    Lithography is important in semiconductor manufacturing because it affects both the performance and yield of the devices in each wafer. The formation of a layer in lithography equipment involves a series of steps, each of which requires process control, namely, surface preparation, spin coat, soft bake, alignment and exposure, post-exposure bake, resist development, after-development inspection, r...

    Energy consumption is a crucial parameter in plant performance and a critical factor for optimization. From a control point of view, factors such as nonlinear, multi-variable dynamics and process constraints need to be handled effectively. In addition, several critical process variables and product quality parameters are not measured online in an industrial cement plant. An effective online estima... View full abstract»

    Passivity-based control of mass and energy inventory has been used for about a decade in selected PPG applications. The methods described in this article are now being implemented throughout the PPG system with excellent operator acceptance. The passivity-based methodology has been applied to other processes, including chemical vapor deposition (CVD), a silicon reactor, fluid-bed control and autom... View full abstract»

    With tighter emission requirements on fuels and the changing world supply of crude oil, more detailed methods for characterizing refinery feed and product streams are needed to make the complicated decisions required to control and optimize refinery operations. Changes in analytical measurement technology provide additional data for fingerprinting the molecular structure of these hydrocarbon mixtu... View full abstract»
