Speech Title:Intelligent Monitoring Approaches for Autonomous Inspection of Wind Turbines


To address the issue of safety operation and maintenance of wind power, this talk will introduce a monitoring framework for wind turbine (WT) damages based on an intelligent unmanned system. Considering the harshness of wind farm environment and the limitation of traditional inspection methods, this research combines digital twin technology with deep learning technique to realize WT damage localization based on artificial intelligence algorithms, and further realizes autonomous inspection of damage locations using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Aiming at the shortcomings of the existing intelligent monitoring methods, this research combines the damage data generated by the finite element model and the damage localization algorithm based on deep transfer learning to realize the localization and detection of WT blade damages. In addition, active sensing and identification of the critical locations are realized through UAV technology, which improves the detection efficiency and accuracy while reducing the energy consumption of operation and maintenance. To summarize, this study aims to realize rapid unmanned inspection of WTs through intelligent monitoring means, improve the effectiveness of the monitoring process, and promote the automation and intelligence of wind power operation and maintenance.

Speech Title:Adaptive Control of High-order Nonlinear Systems

Abstract:Physical systems often exhibit nonlinear characteristics, such as robots and aircraft. This report will discuss two main issues related to nonlinear systems. First, we will introduce a system transformation-based adaptive control method that addresses high-order features of nonlinear systems and significantly reduces the complexity of controller design. Second, we will present a control strategy based on error transformation that ensures both steady-state and transient performance of the system, addressing the performance requirements of nonlinear systems. These approaches are effective in dealing with key issues related to nonlinear systems and offer promising solutions for use in fields like robotics and aerospace.
