Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at the Delft University of Technology, in the Faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE). DCSC has been established in 2003 by merging the systems and control groups of Electrical Engineering (EWI), Mechanical Engineering (3mE), and Applied Physics (TNW).
Our mission is to provide education and to perform research in systems and control, at an internationally recognized high level, from within a TUD-wide center that has a solid foundation in the faculty 3mE. In research we aim at contributing to fundamental aspects of dynamical systems and control as well as at advancing innovative and high-tech applications, in combination with relevant industrial and academic partners. In teaching we aim at creating a scientific climate where students can flourish to become independent and highly-skilled engineers and scientists.
Wind turbine farms can generate much more energy
In order to generate more sustainable energy and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, an increasing number of wind turbines are appearing on the horizon. Especially in the sea, because they are not in anyone’s way there and more importantly there is simply much more space there.
Jan-Willem van Wingerden appointed professor of data driven control
Associate professor Jan-Willem van Wingerden has been appointed professor of data driven control at the Delft Centre for Systems and Control as of 12 December. Jan-Willem van Wingerden’s research focuses on the measurement and control technology of large-scale mechatronic systems that are propelled by a disruption such as wind or waves. His research is unique because it is on the interface of measurement and control technology and mechanical engineering.
