|Title of the thesis:||Optimal Control of Industrial Storage Tanks|
|Summary:||This master thesis deals with the design of optimal control strategies that are used for liquid level control in industrial storage tanks. In the process industry, we can come into the contact with tanks of various geometry where the cross-section is dependent on the level of the liquid. The most widespread tank types are of conical, spherical and horizontal cylindrical shapes. This thesis consists of four parts. The goal of the first part is to derive a nonlinear dynamic mathematical model of each tank in continuous and discrete time. After that, we will compare the step responses of linear and nonlinear mathematical models. The second part of this thesis deals with the design of simple control strategies represented by PID and LQ controllers. In the third part, we will focus on the design of advanced control strategies based on the predictive controller (MPC). The last part describes the case studies, where all control strategies are compared and evaluated.|
