Development of Advanced Control Strategies for Periodic Systems: An Application to Chromatographic Separation Processes* *Research partially supported by. OPTICO project (G.A. No 280813) Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2016 American Automatic Control Council (AACC). In this work we investigate the design and application of advanced control strategies to a periodic chromatographic process. For the Multicolumn Countercurrent Solvent Gradient Purification process (MCSGP), a nonlinear process described by a periodic profile, we present a step-by-step procedure that enables the seamless development of explicit advanced MPC controllers for such systems. The designed controllers assure optimal operating conditions, periodic input profiles and continuous process monitoring.
