Special Issue "Optimization-Driven Methods for Optimal Operation and Control Strategies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
Interests: combining optimization and control; real-time optimization; economic model predictive control; health-aware control and operation; control-structure design; modeling for optimization; energy storage
It is my pleasure to invite contributions to this Special Issue on Optimization-Driven Methods for Optimal Operation and Control Strategies.
Numerical optimization approaches have improved significantly in recent years. They enable us to find optimal operation and control strategies that trade-off many aspects of process operation while taking constraints into account. This has made optimization-based approaches attractive for industrial practitioners as well as academic research.
This Special Issue will collect contributions that apply and develop optimization concepts for realizing optimal process operation and control. This includes online-optimization methods, such as model predictive control (MPC) and real-time optimization (RTO), as well as developments that use optimization off-line for designing an optimal control structure, or controllers, including tuning. Applications of optimizations and new developments of optimization algorithms and methods are both welcome.
- Model predictive control
- Dynamic real-time optimization / economic model predictive control
- Real-time optimization / modifier adaptation / self-optimizing control
- Optimization-based controller design and controller tuning methods
- Learning-based optimization for optimal operation
- Data-based optimization of operations
- Plant-wide control approaches and control structure design
We welcome especially contributions in which optimization-based methods have been applied in industrial or pilot systems.
Prof. Dr. Johannes Jäschke
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1500 CHF applies. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
