Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be leveraged as a tool to help us optimize and improve the treatment of sewage and industrial effluents our plants without the need for large process changes that typically require capital improvement projects. No longer do we need to spend money to learn how to optimize to static conditions that may never be seen.
So far, we’ve covered the fundamentals of process control. We reviewed how PID controllers work, discussed their limitations and introduced the concept of predictive control. In this article, we’ll explore how MPC controllers work in more detail.
