INSPEC: Integrating Sensor Based Information and Advanced Process Control

Project: Research direct

Project Details


Process information is critical to optimal and safe operation of industrial processes. Limited availability of such information often requires operation in relatively inefficient regimes. More efficient use of process information allows improved control and efficient use of production facilities: less off-spec, less rework and operation in a more energy and material efficient regime.
INSPEC quantitatively integrates information from state-of-the-art Process Analytical Technology, process measurements and dynamic process models (data driven or physics-based) into Advanced Process Control. This will induce a step-change with respect to process controllability and enables operation in a more energy efficient regime, while reducing off-spec production.
