A method for increasing load capacity of a foundation pile installed in a ground material is described. At least one electrode is embedded in the ground material at a predetermined distance from the installed pile. A direct current power source is provided, with the power source including at least one cathode connection and at least one anode connection. One of the at least one cathode connection is secured to the foundation pile. One of the at least one anode connections is secured to each of the at least one electrodes. The direct current power source is activated to generate an electric gradient between the foundation pile and the at least one electrode, with the electric gradient being selected to direct charged soil particles in the ground material toward the foundation pile.

Controller scaling and parameterization are described. Techniques that can be improved by employing the scaling and parameterization include, but are not limited to, controller design, tuning and optimization. The scaling and parameterization methods described here apply to transfer function based controllers, including PID controllers. The parameterization methods also applies to state feedback and state observer based controllers, as well as linear active disturbance rejection controllers. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract that will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the application. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims. 37 CFR 1.72(b).

Multiple designs, systems, methods and processes for controlling a system or plant using an extended active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) based controller are presented. The extended ADRC controller accepts sensor information from the plant. The sensor information is used in conjunction with an extended state observer in combination with a predictor that estimates and predicts the current state of the plant and a co-joined estimate of the system disturbances and system dynamics. The extended state observer estimates and predictions are used in conjunction with a control law that generates an input to the system based in part on the extended state observer estimates and predictions as well as a desired trajectory for the plant to follow.

A cell layer measurement device includes a first zone, a second zone, and a porous membrane between the first and second zones. A tissue sample includes the cell layer on the porous membrane. A fluid is on at least a first side of the tissue. A fluid inflow line and fluid outflow line are on at least a first side of the tissue. At least one electrode measures a property of the fluid. A property of the cell layer is determined based on the measured property of the fluid.
