    This paper presents a novel approach to monitor control performance of nonlinear processes that can be described as state-dependent models (SDMs). A discrete Kalman filter (KF) is established to estimate the SDM parameters. A covariance control formulation is introduced to split the system closed-loop variance/covariance into two terms, one term to account for the minimum expected quadratic loss bound (equivalent to the minimum variance performance bound but in state space formulation), and another to account for performance deviations from the minimum variance bound. Simulation studies have been conducted on several nonlinear process systems including a cold rolling mill model with roll eccentricity and a steel making system with real time oxyfuel slab reheating furnace control data. The case study results demonstrate the computational eficiency of the proposed strategy in real time monitoring and control of systems with fast, nonlinear and time-varying dynamics.
