The continuous pulp digester represents a large-scale, distributed parameter system. Control of the spatial profile of degree of cooking, characterized by the Kappa number, rather than its endpoint value can effectively control properties that are dependent on the history of cooking. However, profile control of such large-scale distributed parameter systems(More)
A control-oriented identification and uncertainty estimation approach from input-output data is presented, for use in the design of control systems for paper machines. The application of this approach is demonstrated on a high fidelity simulator. An estimate of the process model along with the uncertainty bounds that describe the confidence limits of the(More)
3 Corresponding Author Robust PID Control in Chemical Process Industries Rakesh Joshi, Kostas Tsakalis, J. Ward MacArthur, Sachi Dash Abstract Robust control design has been increasingly used in industrial settings by leading automation companies. The design procedure has evolved in the last decades and fairly automated procedures exist now for use by(More)
