Joakim Örnekskans has a M.Sc. in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering at Linköping University.He has a very broad experience in all aspects of automation, including developing three generations of control systems (PLC) and a general Scada Network at First Control Systems AB.He has also worked as Software Manager in a large number of delivery projects within the steel and energy areas.
About Joakim's thesis
The research is conducted in conjunction with the development of an intelligent automation framework which includes not only normal control (PLC) functions but also incorporates the most recent research in AI and IoT within the same unit. Special focus in this research will be on IoT functions, how they can be used in a realistic way in a control system framework with preserved safety for the unit. We will also include new adaptive techniques such as adaptive neural networks and so-called adaptive optimizers and also advanced control algorithms as model predictive control.
