The Numerics for Control and Identification (N4CI) group is one of the 3 main research groups of the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC). The mission of the N4CI group is:
This mission is inspired by the following drivers:
- The demand for increased system performance, reliability, adaptability and intelligence
- The dynamic interaction between network connected large scale distributed systems
One of the main goals of the N4CI group is to perform the prototyping and validation of new algorithms for systems and control problems on real-life demonstrators. This is partly done in collaboration with our industrial partners and partly in our laboratory. The target application areas are photonics, such as astronomy, lithography, microscopy on the one hand and renewable energy, such as wind energy on the other hand.
