Willy Wojsznis presented a paper on Wireless Model Predictive Control Applied for Dividing Wall Column Control at the Second International Conference on Event-Based Control, Communication and Signal Processing, EBCCSP2016. This paper was co-authored by me and Mark Nixon and Bailee Roach, University of Texas at Austin. The Conference was held at the Department of computer science of the AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland – shown below.
In his presentation, Willy discusses how model predictive control (MPC) operation is based on the process model, which can be conveniently used in event-based MPC operation. The process model can estimate process control parameters when a measurement fails or when lab sampling is used as a control parameter. Wireless control is another case in which event-based MPC operation, including both slow sampling and randomness, is required. The presentation details event driven wireless MPC operation and design and discusses the application challenges illustrated by the test results.
