Project summary: The project aims to develop advanced controller design methods for low-level carbon footprint process automation. Decreased energy consumption is achieved by implementing the advanced methods of model predictive control. These methods are based on the robust control approach, parallel computing, machine learning, and economic criteria. The model predictive control methods will be designed considering the requirements of the chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries. However, the implementation range will not be limited just to these fields of industry. The theoretical results of the project will be implemented and experimentally analyzed using laboratory devices. The practical aspects of implementation on standard industrial hardware will be considered to design the advanced control methods for low-level carbon footprint process automation.
