• A computationally efficient model predictive control scheme for space debris rendezvous 

      Larsén, Alexander; Chen, Yutao; Bruschetta, Mattia; Carli, Ruggero; Cenedese, Angelo; Varagnolo, Damiano; Felicetti, Leonard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      We propose a non-linear model predictive scheme for planning fuel efficient maneuvers of small spacecrafts that shall rendezvous space debris. The paper addresses the specific issues of potential limited on-board computational ...
    • Controlled Direct Liquid Cooling of Data Servers 

      Lucchese, Riccardo; Varagnolo, Damiano; Johansson, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      We formulate a modeling and control framework aimed at direct liquid cooling of data servers. In our application scenario, the server's heat load is rejected into a liquid cooling circuit that extends to individual chips. ...
    • Data-driven models of pelvic floor muscles dynamics subject to psychological and physiological stimuli 

      Knorn, Steffi; Varagnolo, Damiano; Dewitte, Marieke; Melles, Reinhilde (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This paper proposes individualized, dynamical and data-driven models to describe pelvic floor muscle responses in women undergoing vaginal dilation. Specifically, the models describe how the aggregated pressure exerted by ...
    • Graph-theoretic approaches and tools for quantitatively assessing curricula coherence 

      Varagnolo, Damiano; Knorn, Steffi; Staffas, Kjell; Fjällström, Eva; Wrigstad, Tobias (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In this paper, we propose a method to analyse the coherence of existing curricula at higher education institution. We focus our attention to engineering programmes at universities but the proposed method is by no means ...
    • Multi-Agent Newton-Raphson Optimizaton Over Lossy Networks 

      Bof, Nicoletta; Carli, Ruggero; Notarstefano, Giuseppe; Schenato, Luca; Varagnolo, Damiano (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      In this work, we study the problem of unconstrained convex optimization in a fully distributed multiagent setting, which includes asynchronous computation and lossy communication. In particular, we extend a recently proposed ...
    • Quantitative analysis of curricula coherence using directed graphs 

      Knorn, Steffi; Varagnolo, Damiano; Staffas, Kjell; Wrigstad, Tobias; Fjällström, Eva (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This paper investigates methods for quantitatively examining the connectivity and knowledge flow in a university program considering courses and concepts included in the program. The proposed method is expected to be useful ...
    • Techno-Economic Evaluation of the Sizing and Operation of Battery Storage for Isolated Oil and Gas Platforms with High Wind Power Penetration 

      Chapaloglou, Spyridon; Varagnolo, Damiano; Tedeschi, Elisabetta (Chapter, 2019)
      According to the plans of one of the global oil and gas (O&G) industry leaders, the integration of offshore wind power into offshore O&G platforms will become reality within the next three years. Although this implementation ...
