Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at
The University of Western Ontario, and is located in Thomson
The Lab is founded and directed by
Dr. L. J. Brown, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering.
Research conducted in this lab is focused
on applications of advanced control techniques to periodic disturbance
cancellation and intermittent control, music transcription, power
supply for spot welders, monitoring and estimation and control of
resistance spot welding process.
The lab is equipped with advanced
instrumentation, Real-time simulation software and hardware: D-Space,
Matlab, Spot welding guns (donated by Toyota), Micro-welding gun,
workstations running on Windows & Linux fedora platform.
