Abstract
The objective of the research programme is to acquire new knowledge, which, on the one hand, will serve for the design of more powerful control systems, and, on the other, will contribute to optimisation of their entire life-cycle. The programme will be performed in close connection with a complementary programme carried out at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. It will encompass four closely connected research and development areas. MODEL BASED CONTROL AND OPTIMIZATION OF PROCESSES: Advanced control algorithms are more or less all based on mathematical models. The problem is, however, what kind of model should one use in a particular application. Issues related with the use of neural, fuzzy, and some classical forms of models will be investigated in the context of adaptive and predictive control as well as in process optimisation. FAULT DETECTION AND ISOLATION IN TECHNICAL PROCESSES: On-line fault detection and diagnosis is becoming accompanying feature of modern process control systems. Unfortunately, the existing solutions are too process specific and expensive. Our research will focus on simple yet general purpose methods appropriate for inclusion into the standard SCADA packages. Particular attention will be addressed to the combination of heuristic and analytical approaches to the diagnostic problem solving. COMPUTER INTEGRATED PRODUCTION: One of the major issues in modern production systems arise from integration of different levels of control and management. The objective of our research is in-deep study of the relationships between the process control level and the level of production control. In order to cope with underlying problems, the concepts of domain engineering will be introduced. Particular attention will be devoted to non-technical aspects of control systems implementation. DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED IMPLEMENTATION TECHNOLOGY: Practical use of new concepts and sophisticated algorithms requires appropriate HW and SW solutions. The needed knowledge and skills can be best acquired by work on industrial projects. The emphasis of our work will be put on the adaptation of the advanced control algorithms to the available technologies and vice versa. Case studies will consider mainly processes in chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and other industries, as well as in the biological waste-water treatment plants.
