Lai Wei presented a Keynote presentation at ADCHEM 2021 conference
Lai Wei presented the following paper a Keynote presentation at the 11th IFAC International Symposium on Advanced Control of Chemical Processes (ADCHEM 2021) on 15 June 2021:
Lai Wei, Ryan McCloy, Jie Bao* (2021) Control Contraction Metric Synthesis for Discrete-time Nonlinear Systems,11th IFAC International Symposium on Advanced Control of Chemical Processes.
This paper develops some control theory results for next generation smart chemical plants – to enable flexible operation of the plants to produce products of different specifications at different time based on the market demand and/or deal with time varying utilities (such as availability/price of power) to optimize process economy.
Lai was also awarded an Honorable Mention as one of the finalist for the Young Author Award at ADCHEM 2021.
ADCHEM 2021 is an official conference of International Federation of Automatic Control.
