Soft sensors or other models of the process represent the pre-stage for process optimization. NeuroModel® can easily calculate a model from data. It knows the functional relationship between the operation’s variables and the target variables of the process.
If such a process model is used to test the effects of interference in the process, it can also be used for manual process optimization purposes.
Exactly this can be done by the NeuroModel® GenOpt™ Online software. NeuroModel® GenOpt™ Online varies the parameters of a process model which can be manipulated, so that the economic objective of the process is always attained in an optimum manner. The results are forwarded to the process as target values and improve the latter’s efficiency. The normal efficiency increase for our projects is between 3 – 10%.
