The use of multistage evaporators, motivated by the energy economy from reusing the flashed steam is common in a wide range of process industries. Such evaporators however present several control problems which manifest in the form of strong interactions among the many process variables, significant dead times, tendency to open-loop instability and severe(More)
A recurrent neural network-based nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) scheme in parallel with PI control loops is developed for a simulation model of an industrial-scale five-stage evaporator. Input-output data from system identification experiments are used in training the network using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm with automatic differentiation.(More)
