A Perspective on Advanced Strategies for Process Control (Revisited)

  • D. E. Seborg


This paper provides a personal perspective on the current status of advanced process control. First, process control strategies are classified according to the extent to which they have been applied in industry. Then important new developments in information technology and plant automation are summarized. Prominent advanced process control methods are critiqued with emphasis placed on key issues and unresolved research problems. Finally, recent developments in an important related field, process monitoring, are reviewed.


Fuzzy Control Model Predictive Control Manipulate Variable Linear Quadratic Gaussian Generalize Predictive Control 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
