ABSTRACT: Due to the increasing focus on energy efficiency, environmental regulations, and market competitiveness, developing technologies for innovative process operation is an active research subject in academia and industry. Process Systems Engineering (PSE) technologies play an important role in addressing these challenges. Since most of advanced PSE methodologies use model-based algorithms, developing a representative and reliable process model is a crucial step in utilizing advanced technologies in process industries.
ABSTRACT: With the growing demands placed on industrial production to achieve an integrated smart plant, factories require the development of efficient and viable methods for analysing and assessing the available data. Recently, the emphasis has focused on the development of data-driven control methods that use economic key performance indices (KPIs).
