Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A sequential method for Control Performance Diagnosis using a classication tree to predict possible root-causes of poor performance is presented. The classication tree methodology is used to combine process pre-assessment (nonlinearities detection, delays estimation and controller assessment), Control Performance Assessment (CPA) and ANalysis Of VAriance (ANOVA) into an integrated framework. A initial process data set is analysed and the results are used as decision thresholds for the classication tree. The methodology is capable to identify root-causes such as:poor tuning, inadequate control structure, nonlinearities, process mismatch and disturbance changes. The proposed methodology is applied to individual loops of a tandem cold rolling mill.
