In this paper, the design procedure; modeling and controller design, testing are presented. Extensive tests have shown that the system reacts rapidly to changes in the operating conditions and effectively rejects disturbances due to unexpected changes in the quality of the material. This paper is the design and experimental testing of a feedback control system for the regulation of the volumetric flow in a polymer single screw extruder. Extruder temperature control is a challenging control…

Analysis of Empirical Viscosity Models of Polymer Flow in PVC Extrusion Process

An empirical model to decide the viscosities of thermoplastic polymers in the extrusion process. The viscosity is calculated from the screw rotation speed, melt temperature, geometric dimensions of

In‐line viscosity fuzzy control

A fuzzy control strategy on viscosity of a polymeric melt during the extruding processes is proposed to ensure producing the quality-consistent end products and a suitable using method is concluded.

Parameter-Constrained Adaptive Control

A novel parameter-constrained identifier on the basis of an efficient, quadratic program solver applied semirecursively, making it ideal for real-time adaptive control and it is shown that common orthogonal projection can produce poor results.

Non-linear system identification using closed-loop data with no external excitation: The case of a lean combustion chamber

This paper deals with the analysis of a set of measurements collected on a lean premixed combustion process operating in a limit cycle. Due to the fact that the data are collected in closed-loop and
