Scholarship funding award: Control of Multistable Dynamical Systems

Dr Yang Liu will be working on the control of multistable dynamical systems in the Oil & Gas industry.  Yang will be supervising Boying Liu who has been awarded a Carnegie Caledonian PhD Scholarship.  Control of multistable dynamical systems is a major challenge for power intensive industries to utilize renewable energy in order to ensure long-term sustainable economic growth; strategies for engineering systems to reduce their energy consumptions are to become compulsory. This project will develop new control strategies for general engineering systems with a special attention to the applications in oil and gas industry to maintain their performance within a satisfactory level by using the minimum control energy.
