Details

Tittle:
Adaptive controller algorithms to reduce non-productive time and operational costs of complex industrial processes.
Summary:
A Latvian company has developed adaptive advanced-process-control (APC) algorithms that allow to reduce up to 10 times the process engineers´ work time at the start-up of industrial processes, and also to increase process control performance in real-time with reduced non-productive-time, maintenance and operational costs. The company offers various collaboration options to partners for integration the technology into large plant control system or as a part of industrial equipment control system.
Description:
Advanced control and optimization solutions play an important role to improve the profitability and stability of various industrial processes control systems. The increasing complexity of technological systems demands reliable real-time process control solutions to reduce non-productive time (NPT), maintenance and operational costs that for some industries are crucial.
The set of algorithms are developed for programmable-logic-controllers (PLC) and the use in single-input-single-output (SISO) or multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems.
The proposed approach has two main goals:
1. To help the process engineer at the start-up of the industrial process by getting rid of the guessing and complex process control parameter calculations. The identification algorithm can automatically obtain the process model and calculate its parameters.
2. Ensuring uninterrupted functional process even under intensive process disturbances. Identification and control design algorithms ensure real-time control process adaptation during the mode changes and intensive process disturbances.
The core of the algorithms is divided into two main functions:
1. Valid process data acquisition under any conditions and process disturbances in real-time, and obtaining accurate process model.
2. Calculation of control parameters.
The two main functions are used together as PLC software to automatically control the industrial process. The first function can be used also separately as an addition to any existing PLC software solution for automatic valid process data acquisition and obtaining correct process model.
In order to obtain the valid process data in real-time and to not interfere with the proper functioning of the process, the tuning of the test signal frequencies is taking place, where after the signal level is adjusted to match it with the natural level of the process disturbances (can be adjusted to specific process needs). After that the filtration algorithm is applied. The process model is identified taking into account the physical and also system disturbances affecting the process, where after the correct process control parameters are calculated to reach the desired objective (particular level, temperature, speed, pressure etc.).
The company is also interested to participate in international research and innovation projects as project partner to perform joint work on development of large scale process control systems.
Advantages and Innovations:
The advantages of the proposed technology are:
1. No personnel assistance needed during the start-up of the industrial process saving up to 10x the time needed to tune it.
2. Ensuring uninterrupted functional process with real time adaptation to process mode changes and intensive disturbances.
3. Saving up to 10% of non-productive-time for any process.
4. Can be adopted to use with any industrial controller/system.
