Reconfiguration schemes to mitigate faults in automated irrigation channels
University of Melbourne –
The infrastructure associated with an automated irrigation channel contains a large number of actuators (electro-mechanical gates) and water level and gate position sensors. Actuator and sensor faults happen from time to time, and they will lead to loss of water and reduced service to farmers unless corrective action is taken. In this seminar we will look at strategies for dealing with such faults. Sensor faults are dealt with by estimating the value of the signal measured by the faulty sensor and using the estimated signal as input to the controllers. An actuator fault necessitates a relaxation of the control objectives, and techniques for reconfiguring the controller to meet the new objectives will be presented. Experimental results from an operational irrigation channel will be shown demonstrating that despite faults, good control performance can be achieved without disruption of the of the operation of the channel.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
