TURIX Dynamics

Turix-Dynamics is a group dedicated to the study of diagnosis and control for dynamic systems. Its topics cover fault diagnosis, fault detection, fault tolerant control, robust control, machine learning, among others methods based on mathematical and data-driven approaches. The group explores nonlinear modeling based on Takagi-Sugeno systems, Linear Parameter Varying systems, and nonlinear equations. Recently, it has begun to explore data-driven based diagnostic techniques through its analysis by Artificial Neural Networks and Principal Component Analysis.

The group seeks the application of these diagnostic systems in areas related to fluid transport systems, electric vehicles, and mobile robotics. The most important projects are the detection and location of hydraulic leaks in pipeline networks, fault tolerant control applied to electric vehicles, UAV, and other mechatronics systems.

To guarantee the success of the projects, the group is formed by researchers who cover areas such as control and diagnosis, mechanical design, power electronics and computer systems, from Mexico and over the world, which includes collaborations with  the Technological Institute of Tuxtla Gutierrez, the Technological Institute of Hermosillo, the Institute of Engineering of the UNAM, the National Center of Research and Technological Development (CENIDET); and foreign institutions such as the University of Picardy Jules Verne, France, the University of Lorraine, France, and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain.

The group is supported by students through bachelor, master and PhD theses.
