dc.description.abstractA milk pasteurization process is a nonlinear process and multivariable interacting system. This makes it difficultly to control by the conventional on-off controllers. Even if the on-off controller can managed the milk temperatures in the holding tube and the cooling stage of the plate pasteurizer according to the plant's requirements, the dynamic profiles of the milk temperature are oscillating around a desired value. Consequently, this work is aimed at improving the control performance by a multi-variables control approach with model predictive control (MPC). The proposed algorithm was tested in the case of set point tracking under nominal condition gathered by the real observation. To compare the performance of the MPC controller, a model-based control approach of generic model control (GMC) coupled with cascade control strategy is taken into account. The simulation results demonstrated that a proposed control algorithm performed well in keeping both the milk and water temperatures at the desired set points without any oscillation and overshoot. Because of the predictive control strategy, the control response for MPC was less drastic control action compared to the GMC.
