Safe Optimal Control of Technological Processes


Grant: Internal Grant of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava

Date: 2015-2016

Abstract:The project is aimed to extend the posibilities of safe optimal control design for a wide class of technological processes. The project implements the advanced optimization techniques to design the safe and economically effective control algorithm. The quality of the control performance is evaluated subject to the safety crietria, input costs, and energy demands. The unnegliable quality criterion is also the overall computational effort that is minimized. Particular goals of the project are the software tools freely avaiable by Inernet.

Objectives: Main objectives of the project involve solving these particular tasks:
