Dynamic optimization of batch processes: II. Role of measurements in handling uncertainty
tl;dr
A novel optimization approach for batch processes is proposed, where optimality is achieved by tracking the necessary conditions of optimality that remain valid also in the presence of uncertainty. Expand
