Table of Contents

Part I: Modeling, optimization and control of solution purification process
1. Introduction
2. Production technology and kinetic analysis
3. Modeling and control of copper removal process based on competitive-consecutive reaction system
4. Dynamic modeling and control of goethite process
5. Gradient optimization of cobalt removal process using oxidation-reduction potential
6. Industrial applications

Part II: Some recent ideas on the modeling and control in the age of intelligent manufacturing
7. Process state space (PSS) descriptive system: extension of traditional state-space description, combined with data-driven modeling
8. Adaptive model-reference control: combination of model-based control MPC and model-free control ADP, which is capable of online identification
9. Conclusions


Modeling, Optimization and Control of Zinc Hydrometallurgical Purification Processes provides a clear picture on how to develop a mathematical model for complex industrial processes, how to design the optimization strategy, and how to apply control methods in order to achieve desired production target. This book shares the authors’ recent ideas/methodologies/algorithms on the intelligent manufacturing of complex industry processes, e.g., how to develop a descriptive framework which could enable the digitalization and visualization of a process and how to develop the controller when the process model is not available.

Key Features

  • Presents an extended state-space descriptive framework for complex industrial processes
  • Presents scientific problems extracted from real industrial process
  • Proposes novel modeling and control tools for intelligent manufacturing of continuous industries


Graduate students majoring in process control and automation; Control engineers in the process industries;Academic researchers/lecturers for teaching and research reference
