ESR11 – Robert Bosch GmbH
PhD Position in Adaptive Multilayer Model Predictive Control for Electrical Drives
Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany
The expected milestones of this PhD project are: (1) Development of a control-oriented model of the entire electric drive system. (2) Development of a multilayer MPC algorithm for dynamics within the millisecond to minute range. (3) Extension of multilayer MPC towards learning of uncertain slowly varying parameters. (4) Verification of real-time capability of the multilayer MPC by appropriate solver development and evaluation on an embedded hardware in the loop system. (5) Verification of performance on existing test bench.
