Model-based Strategy for Reduction Cell Control

The broad objectives of the Model-based Control Strategy is to maximise the economic return from each cell in the potline by achieving the optimal combination of: 1) Cell power efficiency (maximise) 2) Cell life (maximise) 3) Production rate per cell (maximise) 4) Manual intervention of operators (minimise). INNOVATION X has developed a model-based control scheme for a Reduction Cell. The model manages the objectives of the reduction cell while maximising the economic business drivers.
