ADVANCED CONTROL SYSTEMS LABORATORY(ACSL)

slide2
TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF SOFIA is the largest higher engineering school in Bulgaria with long years of experience in training engineers. Fifty five thousand are the engineers who have graduated and with the knowledge and skills acquired here have contributed to the development of Bulgarian industry. There is hardly any industry, company, or plant in Bulgaria where TU graduates are not employed.

THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF SOFIA has trained most of the academic staff working in the other higher technical schools in Bulgaria.

THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF SOFIA carries out dynamic research activities, their scientific products being competitive on the world market.

THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF SOFIA is a major educational research and production complex offering highly qualified trainers, engineers and technical staff.

Research & Development Sector
  • The first contracts for financing research and development were signed in 1962-1963 and the Research and Development Sector (R&DS) was established in 1967.
  • As per the internal regulation norms, the R&DS is an autonomous unit through which all contracted research and its complementaryactivities are implemented.
  • In 2003, trough the intermediation of R&DS more than 420 contracts of realized total amount over 3 milions leva have been implemented.
  • R&DS also realized a significat amount of international research activities, primarily under the auspices of the EU Programs: COPERNICUS, Fifth Framework Program etc.The TU - Sofia has created structures and favourable conditions for the development of  scientific research, production and applied research implementation activities on contract basis with industry.

II.3.Recent research interestsand efforts

Current research efforts are aimed at :

1. Developing computer technology for openand predictabledistributed control systems, within few related projects:

  • Software Architecture for Distributed Computer Control Systems;
  • Safe Real-Time Kernel for Distributed Computer Control Systems;
  • Interconnection Network for Hard Real-Time Multicomputer Systems.

2. Design methods for dependable and fault-tolerant systems, e.g. engineering methods and tools for formal specification and verification of real-time control systems.
