Master Thesis Discussion (Safa Farhan Fadel)  

  The master's dissertation of the student (Safa Farhan Fadel) in the field of (Control Engineering) was discussed in the Conference Hall of the Control and Systems Engineering Department on Wednesday 14/10/2020, for her research entitled (Rubust Postprandial Glucose Control for Type 1 Diabetes). The discussion committee consisted of:

1- Prof. Dr. Amjed Jaleel Hamidi / Chairman

2- Asst. Prof. Dr. Thakir Mahmood Naiel / Member

3- Lect. Dr. Taghreed Muhammed Muhammed Ridha / Member

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an acute metabolic syndrome and it is one of the most dangerous diseases in the world that results either from the body’s inability to produce insulin or the body’s autoimmune response to insulin. The artificial pancreas (AP) is a closed loop automatic device. It contains three components, glucose sensor, control algorithm and insulin infusion system. It ensures control of external insulin injection into the patient's body. A comparison of the two designed controllers is presented as the HLS controller and the HLSP controller to determine the best robust AP system controller. Moreover, a comparison was made with the PID controller and the PIDP controller. It is clear that the results of the HLS controller was better than those of the PID controller in regulating the glucose concentration in blood. The results show many advantages like shorter settling time and rise time compared to the PID controller. In this occasion, we congratulate the student (Safa Farhan Fadel) and wish her all success.
