Project Description

In this project a supervisory control system will be developed to support Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). WSN are increasingly used in a multitude of applications such as environmental and structural health monitoring, and condition-based maintenance. In this project, a WSN will be developed and combined with supervisory control system architecture to manage the information gathered by the WSN and make decisions based on these information in the events of alarms, faults, controllers tuning etc. The system will be implemented to a well known non-linear chemical process, the distillation column. The work will be conducted using Opnet for wireless communication protocols which will be interfaced with Matlab for the process simulation and controllers developments. Different controllers will be investigated, namely predictive and intelligent control systems.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
