Controllability analysis and optimal control of biomass drying with reduced order models
Complex industrial processes such as the drying of combustible biomass can be modeled with partial differential equations. Due to their complexity, it is not straightforward to use these models for the analysis of system properties or for solving optimal control problems. We show reduced order models can be derived and used for these purposes for industrial drying processes. (C) 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
