Speaker Bio:

Marcel Heertjes received both his MSc and PhD in mechanical engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology in 1995 and 1999, respectively. In 2000, he joined the Philips Centre for Industrial Technology in Eindhoven. In 2007 he joined ASML as principle engineer and control competence leader. Marcel Heertjes is also part-time professor on nonlinear industrial control for high-precision mechatronics at the department of mechanical engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology.

His main research interests are with industrial control for high-precision mechatronic systems with special focus on nonlinear control, feedforward and learning control, and data-driven optimization and self-tuning. His nonlinear control contributions and developments focus on full support of frequency-domain design, synthesis, loopshaping, and qualification tools that attempt at breaking free from linear control design limitations. His primary ambition is to provide a clear view on (a) robust nonlinear control design and stability analysis, and (b) the associated data-driven controller synthesis and tuning.

He served as guest editor of International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control (2011)  and IFAC Mechatronics (2014) and currently is associate editor of IFAC Mechatronics (since 2016).  In 2015, he received the IEEE Control Systems Technology Award ‘‘For the development and application of variable-gain control techniques for high-performance motion systems’’.

Speaker Bio:

Jan-Willem van Wingerden graduated cum laude in mechanical engineering at TU Delft in 2004. In 2008 he obtained his doctorate, cum laude, in mechanical engineering at the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) for his study Control of Wind Turbines with ‘Smart’ Rotors: Proof of Concept & LPV Subspace. After obtaining his doctorate, Wingerden started working as a tenure tracker at DCSC (3mE). In 2012 he was awarded an NWO Veni grant and in 2019 an NWO VIDI grant both in the field of wind farm control. Since 2017 he is leading the data-driven control section within the Delft Center for Systems and Control, where he is currently a Full Professor.

Jan-Willem is passionate about the development of data-driven control systems for wind turbines and wind farms. In recent years he and his team developed novel data-driven flow models for coordinated wind farm control and showed that these models are key enablers for robust closed-loop wind farm control.
