Abstract We present a framework to study quality of schedules obtained iteratively and online (real-time) in the presence of demand uncertainty Using this framework, we carry out a computational study, and make interesting observations. First, we find that uncertainty plays a less important role as a manufacturing facility is operated close to capacity. Second, the choice of the horizon for the online iterations, is dependent on the mean load, but independent of the accuracy of the forecasts. Fi...

Abstract Traditionally, numerical simulators are used in combination with an optimization algorithm to determine optimum controls that maximize total oil production or net present value (NPV) over the life of the reservoir. These simulators are complex dynamic models that consider geological information, rock and fluid properties, as well as information about the completion of the wells. This complexity results in a high computational time and pose a challenge for the application of gradient-bas...

Abstract Energy storage systems are becoming critical in the future along the increasing renewable energy generation. Their role is central in balancing unexpected deviations in the electricity production and consumption in order to help maintaining the stability of the power system. Similar benefits can be also drawn from demand-side management solutions, where the consumers adapt their short- or mid-term energy needs according to the price and availability of electricity. This paper discusses ...

Abstract This paper deals with the optimal control of a H 2 production system supplied by a photovoltaic solar energy and assisted by the grid. For that, we propose a simple dynamic model accounting for the main features of the system, where the electrolizer current is used as the control variable, and we obtain the control law that optimizes the grid energy consumption despites the solar energy variability An important constraint on the obtained solution is the physical limits of the hydrogen s...

Abstract The large-scale optimization problems that arise from oil production optimization under geological uncertainty of industry-scale reservoir models poses a challenge even for modern computer architecture. In combination with ensemble-based methods for production optimization under uncertainty, gradient-based optimization algorithms provides a powerful approach that ensures a high convergence rate. However, the spatial resolution and complexity of typical industry-scale models has a signif...

Abstract We provide an analytical framework for balanced realization model order reduction of linear control systems which depend on an unknown parameter. Besides recovering known results for the first order corrections, we obtain explicit novel expressions for the form of second order corrections for singular values and singular vectors. The final result of our procedure is an order reduced model which incorporates the uncertain parameter. We apply our algorithm to a system of masses and spring...

Abstract Genome-scale metabolic network models (GEMs) have been applied successfully in many applications, and one important application is to predict different growth phenotypes in various genetic and environmental conditions. Phenotype phase plane (PhPP) analysis is a powerful tool that uses flux balance analysis (FBA) with the GEM to provide a global perspective on the genotype-phenotype relationship, which relies on shadow prices of different metabolites to characterize different metabolic p...

Abstract The emergence of the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and ever advancing computing and communication technologies have fueled a new industrial revolution which is happening worldwide to make current manufacturing systems smarter, safer, and more efficient. Although many general frameworks have been proposed for IoT enabled systems for industrial application, there is limited literature on demonstrations or testbeds of such systems. In addition, there is a lack of systematic study on ...
