    The principal difficulties in achieving good control of polymerization reactors are related to inadequate on-line measurement, a lack of understanding of the dynamics of the process, the highly sensitive and nonlinear behavior of these reactors, and the lack of well-developed techniques for the control of nonlinear processes. Some illustrations of these problems and a discussion of potential techn... View full abstract»

    Application of a self-tuning controller to heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) processes is reported. Adaptive control techniques are attractive in HVAC applications because process characteristics change widely due to variations in weather and building occupancy. Successful implementation of adaptive control techniques is limited by current practices in building instrumentation. Con... View full abstract»

    An instability indicator is proposed for use in supervisory/expert control systems. The indicator-which consists of a trend indicator, a rectifier, and a smoother-observes the plant output. The trend indicator generates the difference between two time averages of different final horizons and is implemented as a pair of discrete moving-average or first-order exponential filters. The rectifier is an... View full abstract»
