PhD Project Mixed-Integer Feedback Control for Real-Time Application to Heat Pumps
In his PhD Project, Felix developed highly efficient and robust mathematical methods for optimizing controls under uncertainties. In particular, he is concerned with applications of such methods to heat pump systems used in next generation electric vehicles. These are challenging problems due to their nonlinear behaviour, the occurence of implicitly state dependent discontinues, discrete controls, combinatorial structure of constraints and structural as well as parametric uncertainty in the process model and data.
