Multi-objective Optimization for Control and Process Operation

Helem Sabina Sánchez, Ramon Vilanova

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present the research of the first author, which aims to seek for a methodology to address control problems by implementing Multi-Objective Optimization Design (MOOD) procedure. This procedure consist of at least of three elements: the definition of a multiobjective problem, the simultaneous optimization of all objectives for the generation of a set of Pareto-optimal solutions and a process of multi-criteria decision making to select the most preferable solution to implement. Up to now, the research has been applied to tuning application for PI/PID controller design. The research problem, objectives, the methodology, some of the contributions and the stage of the research are detailed below. Also, some implementations and current development work is discussed
