Petr Horáček (Rockwell Automation): Modeling and simulations of dynamical systems in industry

Fri, 11/08/2013

Petr Horáček - a recognized expert on modeling, simulation and control of industrial systems - will share with us his experience with practical industrial challenges for modeling and simulation. The talk will be given within the undegraduate course on Modeling and simulation of dynamical systems (MSD) (lead by Zdeněk Hurák) on Friday, November 8, 2013, at 11am at T2:C3-132 room in Technická 2 (campus in Dejvice). Anyone is welcome, the room is large enough. The lecture will take 90 minute. Petr Horáček has got his university education at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague, where he also spent a part of his carreer as a teacher and research; he held the position of an associate professor (docent). Right now is heads a research group at Rockwell Automation, Czech Republic. His portfolio of succesful projects includes modeling, simulation and control design for a fiber glass production system, a few projects for food industry such as cheese cooker, tunnel beer pasteurizer, wet blender for cereals, chocolate tempering machine, tower dryer, several project related to water distribution such as water distribution for a large city agglomeration, complex pumping station, sewage system, desert irrrigation system and many more.
