EMR'09 Presentation

EMR'09, "Modelling and control using EMR"


Application to hybrid Electric Vehicles and others

Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Canada)

Septembre 14-15, 2009

After Lille (France) in 2006 and Harbin (China) in 2008, EMR'09 has been successfully co-organized by Université du Québec à Trois Rivières and University Lille1 / L2EP. There were 43 attendees from 5 countries (Canada, China, France, Switzerland and USA); about 3/4 of attendees were Master or PhD Students. EMR'09 was organized in 5 lectures on concepts, 7 lectures on applications and 2 simulations sessions.

Presentation

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 academy and industry, who have to model and control new electromechanical systems such as industrial multi-drive 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 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). 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.

Compared with other causal modelling tools such as Bond Graphs or Causal Ordering Graph (COG), EMR has a more global energetic view and contributes to system's control design. Differing from non-causal modelling tools such as Physic Modelling Language (PML) using Object-Oriented Modelling Language (which makes its libraries to be coupled in the same way as physical units), EMR is focused on the system function but not only on the system structure. EMR gives insights into the real energy operation of systems and allows a deep understanding of its potentialities from a dynamic point of view.

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 a structural modelling, hence contribute significantly to the design of the control and to energy management of systems.

EMR is taught in various universities in France since 2000, at University of Québec Trois Rivières since 2002 and at EPF Lausanne (Switzerland) since 2005. University of Tsinghua and Harbin Institute of Technology (China) will teach EMR in the coming years. The first EMR workshops were held in Lille (France) in 2005 and 2006. The previous EMR workshop took place in Harbin (China) in 2008. EMR'09 in Trois-Rivières is thus the first EMR workshop in North America.
