A presentation of techniques in advanced process modelling, identification, prediction, and parameter estimation for the implementation and analysis of industrial systems. The authors cover applications for the identification of linear and non-linear systems, the design of generalized predictive controllers (GPCs), and the control of multivariable systems.
Identification: introduction to identification; linear regression; linear dynamic systems; non-linear systems; non-linear dynamic structures; estimation of parameters. Control: predictive control; multivariable systems; time-varying and non-linear systems. Appendices: state space representation; fluidized bed combustion.
