Control of simulated moving bed processes
Simulated moving bed processes are periodically switched nonlinear systems with distributed parameters for which (a) a relatively simple and elegant adaptive cycle-to-cycle control strategy and (b) more recently also optimization-based control strategies have been developed and evaluated experimentally for binary separations in cooperation with the PCF group. Current work is investigating ternary center cut separations, which play an important role in many bioseparations.
