EFFICIENT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION FOR MODEL PREDICTIVE CONTROL WITH THE ISIAC SOFTWARE

Paolino Tona, Jean-Marc Bader

Abstract

ISIAC (as Industrial System Identification for Advanced Control) is a new software package geared to meet the requirements of system identification for model predictive control and the needs of practicing advanced process control (APC) engineers. It has been designed to naturally lead the user through the different steps of system identification, from experiment planning to ready-to-use models. Each phase can be performed with minimal user intervention and maximum speed, yet the user has every freedom to experiment with the many options available. The underlying estimation approaches, based on high-order ARX estimation followed by model reduction, and on subspace methods, have been selected for their capacity to treat the large dimensional problems commonly found in system identification for process control, and to produce fast and robust results. Models describing parts of a larger system can be combined into a composite model describing the whole system. This gives the user the flexibility to handle complex model predictive control configurations, such as schemes involving intermediate process variables.
