Scope

 

TC 6.1 focuses on the development of new modeling and control techniques tailored to the needs of the applications in the (chemical) process industries. It also promotes applications of these techniques to bench-scale, pilot-scale as well as production-scale plants. Processes of interest include those operated by the petroleum, chemical, petrochemical, specialty chemical, pharmaceutical, food, advanced materials, cement and paper & pulp industries. Systems modeling and analysis can be based on both first-principles as well as data driven approaches.  Systems synthesis covers the design of plant-wide architectures of control and operation support systems, the selection and placement of its components (including sensors and actuators), controller design and tuning, performance monitoring as well as fault detection and diagnosis. TC 6.1 supports research and development, education and technology transfer in all these areas by its activities
