    Fuzzy Decoupling of Nonlinear Multiple-Input Multiple-Output Systems

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Nikbakhsh, Sarah (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Many processes in the real world are multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. There are often some interactions between the inputs and outputs. In the other words, every input affects on several outputs, and every output is affected by several inputs. In order to control of these systems, we usually desire to decouple the loops into multiple non-interacting SISO systems after proper pairing of manipulated and controlled variables. Loop interactions can destabilize a control system, so tuning controllers in an interacting MIMO system can be difficult. Decoupling problem has been discussed in the two domains: linear control and nonlinear control. However, both of them need an exact model...

    Development of an Intelligent System to Predict and Control Blood Glucose Level in Type 1 Diabetic Patients

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Afsharpour, Alireza (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    All living entities requires energy to continue their lives. In human beings this energy is provide through consumption of food, at first the consumed food gets converted to glucose and the produced glucose enters the blood and then goes to the body cells in which it is used to produce the required energy. The essential hormone which makes it possible to use Glucose for energy production is INSULIN. In the patients suffering from Type 1 Diabetes, lack of Insulin production makes it impossible for the cells to use Glucose for the production of their required energy. In these patients due to the fact that the blood Glucose is not used by the cells, the Blood Glucose Level (BGL) increases,...

    Development of a Framework to Control and Model Based Fault Diagnosis of a Gas Transmission Network

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Kheradmandi, Masoud (Author) ; Bozorgmehry, Ramin (Supervisor)
    In this project a framework for Model Based Fault Diagnosis (MBFD) in a Gas Transmission Network (GTN) was developed. A black-box linear state-space model was used to capture dynamic behavior of an industrial benchmark for GTN. A full fledge commercial network simulator were used to obtain the required data for process identification. In order to check the robustness of the model zero mean white noise was imposed on various output obtained by the commercial simulator. Kalman filter was used to estimate the states of the GTN. These estimated states along with the measured output (all obtained from the commercial simulator) are almost similar to their corresponding estimated signal. This shows... 

    Design & Identification of a Fuzzy Model to Predict Dynamic Trends of Blood Glucose Level in Type I Diabetic Patients

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Salehi, Samane (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Nowadays diabetes is considered as one of the common diseases among mankind. Different body organs utilize the glucose or the sugar existed in various kinds of food as an energy source in order to provide required energy for their activities. Insulin hormone which is created by the pancreas gland has a very significant role in easing the respective procedure. Therefore, when the body is not capable of producing enough insulin, then glucose aggregation in the blood leads to higher blood sugar and thus a disease called diabetes type1. Up to now, considerable research activities have been done regarding the diabetes type1modelling. One of the bolded drawbacks of such models is that the effect...

    Development of an Integrated Detail Model of Human Respiratory System for Control

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Arianpour, Mehrdad (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    In this thesis, the latest human respiratory system is extended such that it addresses the effect of blood acidity on the performance of the human respiratory system. Since the model does not take into account any controller, two PI controllers proposed by Bental have been used to simulate the closed loop behavior of the respiratory system. Since, in the original model blood pH is considered as a constant value, the extended model has been used for the case where the blood pH pumped by heart is assumed to be and the obtained results have been compared with those of the original model. The similarity of the results shows the extended model to be valid for the normal case. Model since t he... 

    Optimal Sensor Locations for Monitoring of Fluid Transmission Networks Using Evolutionary Algorithms

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Dehghan Manshadi, Mehdi (Author) ; Bozorgmehry, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Monitoring of the water transmission networks is an essential factor to regard efficient, safe and economical strategic considerations. Several parameters (fluid pressure, fluid flow and fluid temperature in some cases) are measured to monitor the water transmission networks. The number and location of these measurements in deferent positions affect the cost and quality of the network states monitoring. It is obvious that measuring the all parameters and states of the network is not cost-effective even when it is possible. The conventional sensor-location methods have been developed based on the pressure variation stemmed from a leakage in the network. This study proposes a new procedure to...

It should give the reader a "preview" of what's to come. The abstract should emphasize new and important aspects of the study or observations. The purpose of the abstract is to allow researchers to decide whether or not to read the whole thesis. The abstract is what researchers read first to decide if the thesis is important, interesting, and it allows them to assess the relevance of a thesis to their own research, without having to read the entire thesis. Thus, it is crucial that the abstract both summarize succinctly the key... 

    Optimization of Dynamic Performance of Gas Transmission Networks

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Ahmadian Behrooz, Hesam (Author) ; Bozorgmehry, Ramin (Supervisor)
    In this work, a non-isothermal model of natural gas in pipelines including mass, momentum and energy balance equations are used as model equations for modeling and state estimation in gas pipeline systems. An algorithm is proposed to handle the discontinuities that appear in the dynamic model of a GTN. The states of GTN are estimated using the continuous/discrete form of the extended Kalman filter for two benchmarks and some heuristic rules for sensor placement in a GTN are concluded. Also, a framework for distributed and decentralized state estimation in high-pressure and long-distance gas transmission networks (GTNs) is proposed. Some heuristic rules are suggested for system decomposition...

    Development Of An Object Oriented Software for Reduced Order Model Identification

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Tarabkhah, Meisam (Author) ; Bozorgmehry, Ramin (Supervisor)
    The main objective of Control Engineering is to lead dynamic behavior of system to an arbitrary state, accomplishment of such an objective requires a model which somehow represents the dynamic behavior of the system, On the other hand an accurate yet fast and efficient model of a complicated model cannot be easily obtained based on the original inputs, states and outputs of the system. This is true both for mechanistic (white box) and empirical (black box) models. In this project, the previous frame work developed for object oriented plant-wide identification has been extended to cover the model reduction based on various established procedures in this area (e.g., statistical and intelligent... 

    Modeling, Simulation and Control of Process Network

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Vosoughifar, Mahdi (Author) ; Bozorgmehry, Ramin (Supervisor)
    A modeling framework is proposed for complex chemical process networks. Concept such as passivity systems, thermodynamic function and graph theory are some important and applicable concept which seems to be useful for process network. The state is represented by energy, volume and mass inventories. The dynamic behavior of the process system is constrained so that all trajectories satisfy the first and second laws of thermodynamics. The concavity of the entropy function is used to define a storage function for passivity design. The proposed storage function is closely related to the Gibbs tangent plane condition. Stability analysis, pairing and controller design could be done by this new... 

    Developing an Object Oriented Agent Based Platform for Optimizing Gas Transmission Networks

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ahmad Asasi, Mohammad (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Nowadays, one of the most challenging issues concerning the manufacturing industries is the shortage of available resources and their increased costs. As a matter of the fact, for these industries, optimizing the processes is not something to be ignored and one of the most important goals is reducing the costs of manufacturing and increasing the profits of sales. On the other hand, in actual situations, due to the complexities of optimization problem and numerous calculations, the classical methods would be limited to very simplistic cases in which most of the practical changes are ignored. In such problems, the need to use strong optimization techniques like the genetic algorithm is evident... 

    A Two Stage Hybrid Algorithm for the Optimal Design of Water-Using Networks

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ahmadian Behrooz, Hesam (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor) ; Rashtchian, Davood (Supervisor)
    Industrial water systems often allow efficient water uses via water reuse and/or recirculation. The design of the network layout connecting water-using processes is a complex problem which involves several criteria to optimize. The general problem can be formulated as a non-convex nonlinear program (NLP), but due to the presence of bilinear terms, it may be difficult for local optimization solvers to attain global optimal solutions. To overcome this difficulty, this paper presents a hybrid approach combining the global optimization power of evolutionary algorithms and speed and accuracy of mathematical programming technics.By this strategy, local solutions can be avoided and the... 

    Quantitative-Based Safety Evalution in the Primarly Stages of the Project Life Cycle

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Khodayari, Ali (Author) ; Rashtchian, Davoud (Supervisor) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Inherent safety means that the process is naturally safe and the conditions of occurrence of unsafe cases and situations are eliminated from the system so that unsafe conditions can be controlled and prevented from occurrence by means of layers of protection. In general, evaluation of inherent safety may be studied in two different conditions; the first one is associated with the units that are not completely designed and built yet. In the initial steps of developing a process, there is much freedom in the determination of materials, equipment, and designing variables. As soon as the process enters its life cycle, making changes in the process will be very difficult and expensive. Therefore,...
