Design and Experimental Evaluation of a Data-Driven Smart Adaptive Control System, Toru Yamamoto, Control Seminar in University of Alberta, 2015/11/25, With Invitation, Dept. of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, In industrial processes, it is necessary to monitor and maintain user-specified control performance in order to ensure product quality compliance and high productivity. This presentation will discuss a design scheme of data-driven smart adaptive controller based on the above strategy. In the newly proposed method, variances of control error and input are evaluated on-line. Moreover, control parameters are adjusted only when the user-specified control performance falls below a specified threshold. In A single parameter tuning scheme is introduced for re-tuning the control parameters . However, in the case when system parameters do change significantly, control parameters are re-designed using closed-loop data since single parameter tuning scheme may not work effectively. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated by application to a simulation example and an experimental pilot-scale temperature control system.
