Neuroscience Inspiration for Biological and Electrical Space Microgrids
July 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
This talk will begin by introducing the control of microgrids, the parallelisms with the human brain and the research for possible sources of inspiration in the last frontiers of neuroscience. Then, control in electric power systems of satellites and space platforms will be presented, showing approaches that are extended from terrestrial microgrids and explaining the differences and challenges when it comes to apply them out in space. Further, multi-microgrid systems will be discussed for moon craters in future lunar manmade bases. Finally, the extension from the hierarchical control of microgrids to bioastronautics in the control of closed ecological systems to support with oxygen, water, and food to the astronauts and thus creating new ecosystems for the moon and future mars bases.
