Abstract

The practical implementation of an integrated system optimization and parameter estimation technique for hierarchical control of steady state systems has been investigated using a distributed hierarchical computer system. Problems associated with the on-line implementation of the technique have been discussed and methods for dealing with these problems are suggested and have been tested in the real-time situation. It is demonstrated that a double iterative version of the technique has important advantages under real time operation.
