Organization profile

Introduction / mission

The research field of CS is the area of dynamic modelling and model-based control of complex dynamic systems.

Highlighted phrase

Enabling smart, high-performance operation of technical systems across technology domains

Organisational profile

The mission of the group is to be an internationally recognized centre of research in systems and control, where contributions to fundamental theory are combined with advancing innovative technological applications in a selected number of domains, in cooperation with relevant industrial partners. The fundamental research of CS is directed towards the following research lines:

• Data-driven modelling in dynamic networks
• Modelling and control of linear parameter varying systems
• Spatial-temporal multi-physics systems and model reduction
• Data analytics and machine learning
• Constrained and interconnected systems
• Model-based control and optimization
• Control of cyber-physical systems

Application domains range from multi-physics high-tech/mechatronic systems, automotive systems, energy and power converter systems to industrial process control systems. In each of these domains CS collaborates with leading companies contributing our fundamental knowledge to their innovation roadmaps.

CS actively participates in the research program of the national research school DISC (Dutch Institute of Systems and Control) and significantly contributes to the 'Smart and Sustainable Systems' program of the EE department. Cooperative links exist with the EE groups EPE and EES and the ME groups CST and DC.
