Title Experts Agents in PEM Fuel Cell Control Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication 4ta International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 896 - 900
Keywords s- PEM Fuel Cell; Expert Agent; Perceptive Agents; Acting Agent; Fuzzy Controller
Abstract (up) In the control of the PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cell, the existence of both deliberative and reactive processes that facilitate the tasks of control resulting from a wide range of operating scenarios and range of conditions it is required. The latter is essential to adjust its parameters to the multiplicity of circumstances that may occur in the operation of the PEM stack. In this context, the design and development of an expert-agents based architecture for autonomous control of the PEM stack in top working conditions is presented. The architecture integrates perception and control algorithms using sensory and context information. It is structured in a hierarchy of levels with different time window and level of abstraction. The monitoring model and autonomic control of PEM stack has been validated with different types of PEM stacks and operating conditions demonstrating high reliability in achieving the objective of the proposed energy efficiency. Dynamic control of the wetting of the membrane is a clear example.

Year 2015 Publication Computer Aided System Engineering (APCASE), 2015 Asia-Pacific Conference on, Quito, 2015 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 214-219
Keywords Twin Rotor MIMO System (TRMS); Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID); Linear PID Controller; Nonlinear PID Controller; Nonlinear Observer
Abstract (up) In this paper the linear and nonlinear PID control algorithms are analyzed and for a twin rotor MIMO system (TRMS), whose characteristic is not linear with two degrees of freedom and cross-links. The aim of this work is to stabilize the TRMS, to achieve a particular position and follow a trajectory in the shortest time. Mathematical modeling of helicopter model is simulated using MATLAB / Simulink, the two degrees of freedom are controlled both horizontally and vertically through the proposed controllers. Also nonlinear segmented observers for each degree of freedom are designed in order to measure statements required by the nonlinear controller. Followed, a comparative analysis of both algorithms is presented to evaluate their performance in the real TRMS.

Title A fuzzy model to manage water in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells Type Journal Article
Year 2021 Publication In Processes Journal. (Article number 904) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 9 Issue Issue 6 Pages
Keywords PEM fuel cell, fuzzy, neural network, electrical response, flooding, drying.
Abstract (up) In this paper, a fuzzy model is presented to determine in real-time the degree of dehydration or flooding of a proton exchange membrane of a fuel cell, to optimize its electrical response and consequently, its autonomous operation. By applying load, current and flux variations in the dry, normal, and flooded states of the membrane, it was determined that the temporal evolution of the fuel cell voltage is characterized by changes in slope and by its voltage oscillations. The results were validated using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and show slope changes from 0.435 to 0.52 and oscillations from 3.6 mV to 5.2 mV in the dry state, and slope changes from 0.2 to 0.3 and oscillations from 1 mV to 2 mV in the flooded state. The use of fuzzy logic is a novelty and constitutes a step towards the progressive automation of the supervision, perception, and intelligent control of fuel cells, allowing them to reduce their risks and increase their economic benefits.

Title Scene representations for autonomous driving: an approach based on polygonal primitives Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication Iberian Robotics Conference (ROBOT 2015), Lisbon, Portugal, 2015 Abbreviated Journal
Volume 417 Issue Pages 503-515
Keywords Scene reconstruction, Point cloud, Autonomous vehicles
Abstract (up) In this paper, we present a novel methodology to compute a 3D scene representation. The algorithm uses macro scale polygonal primitives to model the scene. This means that the representation of the scene is given as a list of large scale polygons that describe the geometric structure of the environment. Results show that the approach is capable of producing accurate descriptions of the scene. In addition, the algorithm is very efficient when compared to other techniques.

Title Melamine faced panels defect classification beyond the visible spectrum. Type Journal Article
Year 2018 Publication In Sensors 2018 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 11 Issue Issue 11 Pages
Keywords
Abstract (up) In this work, we explore the use of images from different spectral bands to classify defects in melamine faced panels, which could appear through the production process. Through experimental evaluation, we evaluate the use of images from the visible (VS), near-infrared (NIR), and long wavelength infrared (LWIR), to classify the defects using a feature descriptor learning approach together with a support vector machine classifier. Two descriptors were evaluated, Extended Local Binary Patterns (E-LBP) and SURF using a Bag of Words (BoW) representation. The evaluation was carried on with an image set obtained during this work, which contained five different defect categories that currently occurs in the industry. Results show that using images from beyond

the visual spectrum helps to improve classification performance in contrast with a single visible spectrum solution.

Title Time series in sensor data using state of the art deep learning approaches: A systematic literature review. Type Conference Article
Year 2022 Publication VII International Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation for Society (CITIS 2021), mayo 26-28.  Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies. Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 252 Issue Pages 503-514
Keywords time series, deep learning, recurrent networks, sensor data, IoT.
Abstract (up) IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) are becoming

support tools for several current technological solutions due to significant advancements of these areas. The development of the IoT in various technological fields has contributed to predicting the behavior of various systems such as mechanical, electronic, and control using sensor networks. On the other hand, deep learning architectures have achieved excellent results in complex tasks, where patterns have been extracted in time series. This study has reviewed the most efficient deep learning architectures for forecasting and obtaining trends over time, together with data produced by IoT sensors. In this way, it is proposed to contribute to applications in fields in which IoT is contributing a technological advance such as smart cities, industry 4.0, sustainable agriculture, or robotics. Among the architectures studied in this article related to the process of time series data we have: LSTM (Long Short-Term Memory) for its high precision in prediction and the ability to automatically process input sequences; CNN (Convolutional Neural Networks) mainly in human activity

recognition; hybrid architectures in which there is a convolutional layer for data pre-processing and RNN (Recurrent Neural Networks) for data fusion from different sensors and their subsequent classification; and stacked LSTM Autoencoders that extract the variables from time series in an unsupervised way without the need of manual data pre-processing.Finally, well-known technologies in natural language processing are also used in time series data prediction, such as the attention mechanism and embeddings obtaining promising results.

Title Measuring software functional size from business process models Type Journal Article
Year 2011 Publication International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 21 Issue Pages pp. 311–338
Keywords
Abstract (up) ISO 14143-1 specifies that a functional size measurement (FSM) method must provide measurement procedures to quantify the functional user requirements (FURs) of software. Such quantitative information, functional size, is typically used, for instance, in software estimation. One of the international standards for FSM is the COSMIC FSM method — ISO 19761 — which was designed to be applied both to the business application (BA) software domain and to the real-time software domain. A recurrent problem in FSM is the availability and quality of the inputs required for measurement purposes; that is, well documented FURs. Business process (BP) models, as they are commonly used to gather requirements from the early stages of a project, could be a valuable source of information for FSM. In a previous article, the feasibility of such an approach for the BA domain was analyzed using the Qualigram BP modeling notation. This paper complements that work by: (1) analyzing the use of BPMN for FSM in the BA domain; (2) presenting notation-independent guidelines for the BA domain; and (3) analyzing the possibility of using BP models to perform FSM in the real-time domain. The measurement results obtained from BP models are compared with those of previous FSM case studies.

Title Open Source system for identification of corn leaf chlorophyll contents based on multispectral images Type Conference Article
Year 2019 Publication International Conference on Applied Technologies (ICAT 2019); Quito, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 572-581
Keywords
Abstract (up) It is important for farmers to know the level of chlorophyll in plants since this depends on the treatment they should give to their crops. There are two common classic methods to get chlorophyll values: from laboratory analysis and electronic devices. Both methods obtain the chlorophyll level of one sample at a time, although they can be destructive. The objective of this research is to develop a system that allows obtaining the chlorophyll level of plants using images.

Python programming language and different libraries of that language were used to develop the solution. It was decided to implement an image labeling module, a simple linear regression and a prediction module. The first module was used to create a database that links the values of the images with those of chlorophyll, which was then used to obtain linear regression in order to determine the relationship between these variables. Finally, the linear

regression was used in the prediction system to obtain chlorophyll values from the images. The linear regression was trained with 92 images, obtaining a root-mean-square error of 7.27 SPAD units. While the testing was perform using 10 values getting a maximum error of 15.5%.

It is concluded that the system is appropriate for chlorophyll contents identification of corn leaves in field tests.

However, it can also be adapted for other measurement and crops. The system can be downloaded at github.com/JoeSvr95/NDVI-Checking [1].

Title Lógica borrosa para la estimación de estados críticos de una pila de combustible PEM Type Conference Article
Year 2014 Publication Reconocimientos de Patrones, Control Inteligente y Comunicaciones (MACH 2014) Abbreviated Journal
Volume 5 Issue Pages
Keywords Caracterización de pilas de combustible PEM, estado de inundación y deshidratación de la membrana polimérica, árbol de decisión borroso, control, lógica difusa
Abstract (up) La determinación en tiempo real de los estados críticos de operación de la pila de combustible de membrana intercambio protónico (siglas en ingles, PEM) es uno de los principales retos para los sistemas de control de pilas de combustible PEM. En este trabajo, se presenta el desarrollo e implementación de un método no invasivo de bajo coste basado en técnicas de decisión borrosa que permite estimar los estados críticos de operación de la pila de combustible PEM. La estimación se realiza mediante perturbaciones al estado de operación de la pila y el análisis posterior de la evolución temporal del voltaje generado por la pila. La implementación de esta técnica de estimulación-percepción de estado de la pila de combustible para la detección de estados críticos constituye una novedad y un paso hacia el control autónomo en óptimas condiciones de la operación de las pilas de combustible PEM.
