Modelling, Simulation and Control of Gas Turbines Using Artificial Neural Networks
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)
This thesis investigates novel methodologies for modelling, simulation and control of gas turbines using ANNs. In the field of modelling and simulation, two different types of gas turbines are modelled and simulated using ...
Modelling the glucose-insulin regulatory system for glycaemic control in neonatal intensive care.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2009)
Hyperglycaemia is a common condition in the very low birth weight infant and is linked to mortality and increased risks of morbidities such as sepsis and retinopathy of prematurity. The preterm neonate is in a state of ...
Distributed Control of a Nanogrid Using DC Bus Signalling
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
A nanogrid is a standalone hybrid renewable system that uses distributed renewable and non-renewable sources to supply power to local loads. The system is based on power electronics, with interface converters allowing the ...
Experimental and Analytical Studies of Semi-Active and Passive Structural Control of Buildings
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2007)
This thesis explores semi-active structural control methods for mitigating damage during seismic events. Semi-active devices offer the adaptability of active devices in conjunction with low power requirements and thus ...
Continuous Glucose Monitoring and Tight Glycaemic Control in Critically Ill Patients
(University of Canterbury. Department of Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
Critically ill patients often exhibit abnormal glycaemia that can lead to severe complications and potentially death. In critically ill adults, hyperglycaemia is a common problem that has been associated with increased ...
