IEEE Young Professionals Windsor Section presents:

“Optimisation-Based Control of Nonlinear Processes

About the Topic:A major trend in industry over the last 40 years has been employing constrained mathematical optimisation techniques to compute control actions that optimise a quadratic objective function with its minimum at a process steady-state, subject to linear or nonlinear process models and practical constraints such as bounds on flow rates due to valve limitations. These optimisation-based control designs (referred to as model predictive control or MPC) are typically implemented within a two-layer architecture.

Speaker: Dr. Helen Elaine Durand, Professor Wayne State University

Speaker Bio: She received her B.S.,  M.S.  and her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from UCLA in 2017. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Wayne State University. Her research interests are in the general area of process systems engineering with a focus on process optimisation and control, process operational safety and computational modelling.
