Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) coordinates the education
and research activities in systems and control at the Delft University
of Technology. DCSC has been established in 2003 by merging the
systems and control groups of Electrical Engineering (ITS), Mechanical
Engineering (OCP) and Applied Physics (TNW).
The core research activity of the
DCSC is twofold:
The deliberately selected integration of the fundamental research line
with the application oriented one, creates the ideal platform to
systematically address problems in emerging technologies and to
stimulate the development of innovative industrial control technology.
The fundamental research activities concentrate on the three major
areas of model based control design, i.e.,
- the development of new theories and numerical
tools for modeling and control of dynamic systems, and
- the validation of these new contributions in engineering
The application oriented research aims at the adaptation and
integration of fundamental innovations in laboratory demonstrations
and for industrial pilot plants covering the following target
- system identification
- controller design.
The research activities in these domains are multi-disciplinary in
nature and for the first 3 domains are defined in concurrence with the
``Speerpunt'' programs of Delft University of Technology.
- industrial process control
- mechatronics and micro systems
- traffic and transportation control
- physical imaging systems.
