Paper Abstract

An application of neural networks to the problem of parameter estimation for process systems is described. Neural network parameter estimators for a given parametrized model structure can be developed by supervised learning. Training examples can be dynamically generated using a process simulation, resulting in trained networks that are capable of high generalization. This approach can be used for a variety of parameter estimation applications. A proof-of-concept open-loop delay estimator is described, and extensive simulation results detailed. Some results of other parameter estimation networks are also given. Extensions to recursive and closed-loop identification and application to higher-order processes are discussed.
