Model Based control for tile glazing lines

Achieving a steady state at the glazing lines is one of the main problems at the tiles production industry. Temperature, density and viscosity of the glaze greatly influence the quality of the tile.
Keeping them at optimal values is, therefore, of prime importance. The developed control of the glazing lines is based on the use of models taking into account the nonlinearities and parameter variations typical of these systems. The control aims at keeping the relevant process variables within prescribed interval, in spite of the uncertainty. Uncertainty is treated within the intervalar arithmetic framework.
The system either modifies on-line the appropriate manipulable variables or warns the operator, providing a hint.
