Modelling and Predictive Control of Milk Pasteurisation in the Plate Heat Exchanger
Khadir, Mohamed Talek and Richalet, Jacques and Ringwood, John and O'Connor, Barry (2000) Modelling and Predictive Control of Milk Pasteurisation in the Plate Heat Exchanger. In: Foodsim 2000 Conference, Nantes, France.
This paper investigates the possible usage of Model Predictive Control (MPC) in a pasteurisation plant outlining the resulting benefits over classical control method, for instance Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) control. However MPC requires a plant model, a physical first principals model of the pasteuriser is developed and validated using data gathered on site at the "Glanbia" milk production unit in Drogheda, Ireland. A PFC controller is then designed using this model, simulated results are presented and compared with the results given by the PID controller in operation.
