    • Auto-code generation for fast embedded model predictive controllers

      Currie, J; Prince-Pike, A; Wilson, DI (IEEE, 2012)
      The implementation of model predictive controllers on low-cast hardware such as micro-controllers has been traditionally hampered by the high computing and associated memory demands of the algorithm. This paper describes ...
    • A kinetic model of municipal sludge degradation during non-catalytic wet oxidation

      Prince-Pike, A; Wilson, D; Baroutian, A; Andrews, J; Gapes, D (Elsevier, 2015)
      Wet oxidation is a successful process for the treatment of municipal sludge. In addition, the resulting effluent from wet oxidation is a useful carbon source for subsequent biological nutrient removal processes in wastewater ...
    • Maintaining New Zealand’s electrical reserve management tool

      Prince-Pike, A; Wilson, DI; Ileva, I; Li, A; Phethean, M (IEEE, 2012)
      Managing the electrical reserves in a small, geographically elongated nation like New Zealand is a challenge. The Reserve Management Tool (RMT) developed over a decade ago optimally schedules the reserve load given the ...
    • The Significance of Powder Breakdown During Conveying Within Industrial Milk Powder Plants

      Boiarkina, I; Sang, C; Depree, N; Prince-Pike, A; Yu, W; Young, B; Wilson, D (Elsevier, 2016)
      Instant whole milk powder (IWMP) is designed to rapidly dissolve in water, which depends on the particle size distribution (PSD). The fragile milk powder exiting the dryer has to be conveyed for packing, which can break ...
