Abstract [en]

This report takes an approach of laying the first steps to create an artificial pancreassystem as treatment for type 1 diabetes. This includes a thoroughly performedanalysis of the most intrusive physical factors, such as hormonal activity, time offset,errors of measurement and metabolism. Such factors raise a need forcompensation. A compensation that will enable the development of the link betweena continuous glugose monitoring(CGM)-device and an insulin infusion pump,a system that can be described as an Artificial Pancreas.Through analysis of measured glucose series, a mathematicalapproximation is presented to solve the time offset of CGM.The approximation gives sufficient results but with room for improvementFrom the analysis of affecting factors, a compensation model isdeveloped. The model is designed as a closed loop which is suitable for timecontinuous systems. The output of the compensation model equation presented here is adirective that would be read by an insulin pump.
