Data-driven process control
After the first article in this series dealt with the general basic building blocks of control systems, the second article is dedicated to modeling the behavior of systems. The focus here is on differentiating between different types of modeling. The main part of the article introduces a special data-driven approach that has recently attracted growing scientific interest.
The automatic control of complex systems poses a growing theoretical and technical challenge. Regardless of whether these systems are biological or chemical reactors, wind turbines, power grids, airplanes or even manufacturing systems, the questions to be answered are always comparable. This upcoming series of articles will give an introduction to this interesting field and, in the first part, will cover the general basic components of control systems using a production example.
