Title: A general hybrid semi-parametric process control framework
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: A general hybrid semi-parametric process control framework is proposed in this study. The motivation was the integration of different levels of knowledge systems into a general hybrid semi-parametric control structure, of which the general linear controller or the PID controller are, for instance, particular cases. Several hybrid semi-parametric control structure variants and tuning methods are benchmarked in relation to a simulated bioprocess control problem, namely closed-loop control of the biomass concentration through manipulation of the substrate feeding rate, coupled with the closed-loop control of the dissolved oxygen concentration through the stirring velocity. The results demonstrate that (i) due to the hybrid approach the control loop can be closed without any additional identification experiments; (ii) the incorporation of different types of knowledge can enhance the controller performance, when compared to structures without a priori knowledge; (iii) knowledge incorporation seems to facilitate the tuning of the controller; and (iv) the control action can be analyzed in relation to structural information incorporated into the hybrid controller.
