Talk Title: Data and Knowledge Driven Industrial Energy Prediction and Scheduling

Abstract: Industrial energy resource saving is capable of not only improving the enterprise profits, but also carrying out the significant strategy meaning for our country. Given the fixed technical process and equipment, the optimization scheduling of the industrial energy system is the most important approach for such a goal. However, the most industrial energy systems exhibit a very complicated structure, which can hardly establish a mechanism based model to describe such a system, and the existing manual scheduling method makes the decision making process tardily. Aiming at such a challenge, a class of data-driven predictive scheduling methodology is proposed. In detail, considering the consistent modeling, the quantitative uncertainty description, and the semantic characteristics of the energy data, the short-term prediction model, the prediction interval one and the long-term model are respectively reported, and a rolling optimization technique with the procedures of prediction-scheduling-validation is proposed. The mentioned approaches have been successfully applied to a number of industrial enterprises in our country.

Talk Title: Data-driven, wide-range, non-stationary process monitoring


Abstract: Modern industrial production often has wide-range nonstationary operating characteristics, such as batch manufacturing processes, wide-load power generation processes, etc. Due to its large-scale non-stationary operation characteristics, it raises new challenges to the safe and reliable operation of industrial processes and has become the focus of attention. Starting from the traditional batch process, this report will present the concept of a generalized batch process, analyze the specific characteristics of wide-range nonstationary industrial processes, and summarize the basic process monitoring techniques and the relevant research work in this field. It further analyzes the existing specific problems, and extend the traditional batch process analysis methods to industrial processes with wide-range non-stationary operation characteristics. Finally, the application of the proposed method in different fields will be briefly introduced.

1.3. Speaker: Prof. Xiaoli Luan, Jiangnan University, China

Talk Title: Fault detection based on NIR for crude oil desalting process


Abstract: The fault detection problem of the oil desalting process is investigated in this presentation. Different from the traditional fault detection approaches based on measurable process variables, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is applied to acquire the process fault information from the molecular vibrational signal. With the molecular spectra data, principal component analysis was explored to calculate the Hotelling T2 and squared prediction error, which act as fault indicators. Compared with the traditional fault detection approach based on measurable process variables, NIR spectra-based fault detection illustrates more sensitivity to early failure because of the fact that the changes in the molecular level can be identified earlier than the physical appearances on the process.

Talk Title: Multiobjective Cooperative Optimal Control for Municipal Wastewater Treatment Process

Abstract: Municipal wastewater treatment process is an effective way to protect the environment and realize the recycling utilization of water resources. However, since the municipal wastewater treatment process owns the characteristics of multiprocess, multiworking conditions and time-varying, the optimal control methods, based on the single scale, single level and single objective, cannot guarantee the optimal operation of whole system. Multiobjective cooperative optimal control can construct the performance indicators with different time scales and design the dynamic optimization method with multiple conflicting objectives for the municipal wastewater treatment process. And a multiobjective cooperative optimization control technology has been developed to achieve the multiobjective optimization of municipal wastwater treatment process between local and overall, short-term and long-term, benefit and safety. Then, the abnormal working conditions in municipal wastewater treatment plants has been reduced, and the operation efficiency of municipal wastewater treatment has been improved.
