Dynamical systems, Modelling of chemical and biochemical
processes, Application oriented modelling, Process control and
Model Predictive Control, Optimization and optimal control
problems, Open and closed loop system identification, Parameter and
state estimation, Controller tuning, Numerical algorithms.
The research is focused both on development of generic tools for
the process industry and application of advanced optimization
method and systems engineering in both simulation studies and pilot
plant and full scale. Applications are focused on chemical and
biochemical production systems.
Examples of current projects:
Development of tuning algorithms and tools for Model Predictive
Monitoring and control of enzymatic biodiesel production
Modelling, design and control of novel energy efficient
distillation technology (diabatic distillation, HIDiC)
of Automotive DeNOx by SCR
