—In continuous chemical processes, variations of process variables usually travel along propagation paths in the direction of the control path and process flow. This paper describes a data-driven method for identifying the direction of propagation of disturbances using historical process data. The novel concept is the application of transfer entropy, a(More)
Disturbances in chemical processes spreading through plants affect a number of process variables. The operator or the monitoring scheme in place often detects the disturbance at a variable critical to the process. This variable might not be close to the actual cause and isolation of the root cause becomes therefore a task for the control engineer. The aim(More)
