Abstract

Application of an artificial neural network to on-line control of a process D. Williams," J.T. Evans," J.B. Gomm" & P.J.G.

Box ABSTRACT Although the development of linear control theory is well established, real industrial processes contain significant non-linearities that give limited credence to the optimal performance of controllers over a wide operational region. Consequently, the development of techniques that enable the design of a controller suitable for operation with a non-linear process would be beneficial. This paper describes the development and implementation of an on-line, one-step-ahead, optimal predictive controller incorporating a neural network model of the process. The scheme is based on a Multi-Layered Perceptron neu
