The control challenge of the SACAC Hackathon addresses the water crisis in South Africa. The objective is to design a control strategy that will optimize the water use in a residential household over the course of one year. The development platform of the challenge is Matlab Simulink. The event is open to all. Prizes will be…

  Call for participation This is a one-day interactive course on model-based observer design. The aim is to determine which states and parameters of an observer model can be estimated with reasonable accuracy from available measurements. This can be established using observability theory. Once observability is established, development of Kalman filters will be discussed to…
