【学术报告】Gavin院士讲座——Connected Plant

作者:  发布日期:2018-08-23

报告摘要:

Advances in process measurement sciences, automation, digital communications, cloud computing, process modeling and data science are creating new opportunities for chemical engineers to increase the performance of chemical plants. Data extracted from the plant can be used to automatically update models that are useful for enhancing process reliability, safety and operational efficiency. Examples will be given that show how Honeywell is applying fundamental principles of chemical engineering and control theory to develop new tools that our customers can use to optimize their process operations.
