A hot strip mill for the production of steel is a complex process where nonlinear dynamic phenomena occur and many control loops need to be tuned taking into account their interference. The control problem of the interstand tension and looper arm position is addressed in this paper. With respect to the conventional PID control approach, our investigation… CONTINUE READING
