EMR'08 Presentation

EMR'08, "Modelling and control using Energetic Macoscopic Representation"


Application to hybrid Electric Vehicles and others

Harbin Institute of Technology (China)

6-7 Septembre 2008

 

 

 

 

After Lille (France) in 2006, EMR'08 has been successfully co-organized by Harbin Institute of Technology and University Lille1 / L2EP. There were more than 50 attendees from 6 countries (Belgium, Canada, China, France, UK and US); about 3/4 of attendees were Master or PhD Students. EMR'08 was organized in 5 lectures on concepts, 6 lectures on applications, 2 simulations sessions and a dialog session.

Presentation

This workshop was a joint Summer School of Harbin Institute of Technology (China) and University of Science and Technology of Lille (France), organized in the framework of IEEE-VPPC 2008 (Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference), Harbin, September 3-5, 2008, thanks to initiative of Prof. C. C. Chan.

This workshop was focused on the Energetic Macroscopic Representation (EMR) methodology for modelling and control of complex electromechanical systems.

This Summer School was dedicated to Master and PhD students, Engineers and scientists, both from academia and industry, who have to model and control new electromechanical systems such as industrial multi-drives systems, traction and propulsion systems, hybrid electric vehicles, or renewable energy generation systems.

EMR is a graphical modelling tool, which has been introduced in 2000 by L2EP Lille to describe complex electromechanical systems. EMR is based on the action-reaction principle to organize the interconnection of sub-systems according to the physical causality (i. e. integral causality). This description highlights energetic properties of the system (energy accumulation, conversion and distribution). Moreover, an inversion-based control can be systematically deduced from EMR using specific inversion rules.

In short, the distinct features of EMR lie in its clarity of physical concepts, as well as their physical causality, and its functional modelling rather than structural modelling, hence contributing significantly to the design of the control and to energy management of systems.

EMR is nowadays taught in serveral French Universities, in Canada (Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières) and Switzerland (EPF Lausanne). EMR is progressively used by industrial companies such as Siemens Transportation Systems, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Renault, AVL Powertrain / Jaguar (UK). More details are given in the EMR page.

If first EMR summer school have been proposed in Lille (2005, 2006), EMR'08 was the first one outside France. I hope that all attendees enjoyed this event and that EMR could give them new ideas to develop their challenging works!

Finally, I would like to thank all the organising committee members for their hard work, and specially Prof. C C. Chan for his steadfast and enthusiastic support! A successful event is always the result of a generous and united team.
