TC-Process Control


Mission Statement 

Process control has long been associated with the control of chemical and petrochemical processes.The process control community has evolved considerably over the last 25 years.This community, which has been predominantly associated with the chemical and petrochemical industry, has been increasingly involved in the research and development of many new application areas. Correspondingly, many key process control technologies, such as MPC, have found a very broad spectrum of application which goes beyond the traditional control of industrial processes.  

The activities of the members of the TC are varied and reflect the research activity of our TC member which go far beyond the traditional control of industrial processes. Our members, and the process control community in general, tackle many problems in diverse areas that include systems biology, energy systems, nano-technology and biomedical systems that do not qualify as industrial scale applications. 

  The objectives of the TC are to:
  1. Bring together control engineers, researchers and practioners to identify current trends and future directions of process control research and development.

  2. To highlight control applications and research opportunities in the study of process control such as:
    • energy systems
    • electrochemical processes
    • pharmaceutical processes
    • building systems
    • industrial and manufacturing processes
  3. To highlight the contributions of the process control community to control engineering including Model Predictive Control (MPC), Process monitoring and Process optimization.
