On possibilities of practical implementation of balance-based adaptive control methodology. (English) Zbl 1234.93063
Summary: This paper deals with two approaches to the practical implementation of the Balance-Based Adaptive Controller(B-BAC): the low-level PLC-based approach of the explicit form of the B-BAC and the high-level PC-based one in the form of the general “virtual controller”. In both cases, we discuss the details of meeting the general requirements of a particular practical implementation. We also consider the implementation aspects that are independent of the implementation, such as development of the front panel, saturation of a manipulated variable, on-line measurement and data acquisition, implementation of the on-line estimation procedure, bumpless switching between the automatic and manual mode, etc. Additionally, we present how to derive both the general form and the final explicit form of the B-BAC on the example of a biotechnological process and how to apply these forms in the particular practical implementation.
