The projects worked on so far in Transfer Center 1 show that there are often significant differences between model-based planning data of process plants and actual process data recorded during plant operation, a clarification of which is of high relevance for the further development of the processes.
The use of standard methods of machine learning is not effective here, since the complex sensor and analytics in production plants generally do not fully capture the input-output-behavior and can only be learned to a limited extent on this basis.
Therefore, the main objective is to close such systematic gaps with models of the strong interdisciplinary cooperation in Center 1 and the two R&D-Labs.
Focus of the Transfer Center:
The services offered by the center stand for modeling, simulation and optimization in process engineering. The work covers process engineering processes as well as their products and their application properties.
Three focal points and thus also sectors are in focus:
- »Decision Support in the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry«
- »Process Development for Fibers and Nonwovens«
- »Simulation of Filtration and Separation Processes«
- Fraunhofer ITWM
- TU Kaiserslautern (Mathematics, Mechanical and Process Engineering)
