FUDIPO based book is out!

The book “AI and Learning Systems – Industrial Applications and Future Directions” has been published!

This book has been edited by our project coordinators Erik Dahlquist and Konstantinos Kyprianidis and covers the recent developments and a broad perspective of the key challenges that characterize the field of industry 4.0 with a focus on applications of artificial intelligence.

The target audience for this book includes engineers involved in automation system design, operational planning, and decision supportComputer science practitioners and industrial automation platform developers will also benefit from the timely and accurate information provided in this work.

The book is organized into two main sections comprising 12 chapters overall:
• Digital Platforms and Learning Systems
• Industrial Applications of AI

You can find the book in the following link: https://www.intechopen.com/books/ai-and-learning-systems-industrial-applications-and-future-directions

FUDIPO project reach the end!

Dear followers,

After a little more than 4 years of hard work and collaboration, it is a pleasure for us to announce that the FUDIPO project has been successfully completed.

During these four years, different optimization and control tools have been developed and applied in different industries, which is a small step towards the industrial sustainability in Europe.

Our work has also led to more than 30 publications related to the subject that you can find on our website, along with other dissemination works.

We really hope that this project is the door to new jobs and collaborations and to continue advancing in this necessary change towards a sustainable economy.

We leave you here the final newsletter that we have prepared for you with great enthusiasm, where you can find a few words of farewell from the coordinators and some researchers, as well as results in the case studies, information about a free-use platform that we have developed, and our latest scientific publications: https://fudipo.eu/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/FUDIPO-4th-Public-Newsletter.pdf

This website will remain operational, which contains all the information on the project and results.

Sincerelly,

FUDIPO consortium.

New paper about FUDIPO pulp and paper case study!

Moksadur Rahman, Anders Avelin and Konstantinos Kyprianidis, who are researchers and professors at MDH University have recently published a new paper about the pulp and paper case study in Processes Journal: “A REVIEW ON THE MODELING, CONTROL AND DIAGNOSTICS OF CONTINUOUS PULP DIGESTERS”.

You can find more information and download the full paper here:  https://fudipo.eu/a-review-on-the-modeling-control-and-diagnostics-of-continuous-pulp-digesters/

 

H2020 projects COCOP and FUDIPO organize their final workshop on 11th March 2020 – VIRTUAL WORKSHOP

The workshop will present the EU perspective on digital operations in process industries and discuss plant-wide monitoring & control of data-intensive processes, the scope of SPIRE-02-2016 projects.

COCOP and FUDIPO will present their vision, objectives, approach and the solutions implemented for different process industry (Steel, Copper, Pulp & Paper, Oil Refining, Heat and Power plants and Waste-Water treatment), evaluating their impact on quality and resources/energy efficiency and analysing their transferability to other sectors.

Moreover, CoPro, MONSOON and MORSE projects, all working in similar areas, will be also present in the meeting, providing insight on their projects. As a direct consequence, we will gather in this event some of the latest advances done within SPIRE in improving the efficiency of the process industries through advanced control and optimisation.

Don’t miss it! The workshop will take place on the 11th March 2020 and it will be a virtual workshop with remote connection.

The agenda of the event is available hereRegistration is open. until Tuesday 10th March at 12.00. You will receive the link to the connection by e-mail

We look forward to welcoming you!

 

19th biennial meeting of the International Council for NIR Spectroscopy, Gold Coast – Australia

Our colleague Esin Iplik, PhD student of MDH University, presented a poster in NIR focusing on TUPRAS oil refinery case study in the 19th biennial meeting of the International Council for NIR Spectroscopy in Australia. This was a great place for her for sharing experiences with researchers working on similar topics, and getting nice feedback to advance further work. Congratulations!

FUDIPO meeting in Izmit (Turkey), 14-15 October 2019

In recent days, the FUDIPO consortium met in Izmit, a city near Istanbul, in Turkey, to discuss the development of the project, the financial report, comment on the different experiences of the case studies, and decide future actions.

Thus, during the first day, we present the current status of the different use cases and the implementation of the sensors. The day continued with a visit to the Tupras oil refinery, especially to the control room. Finally, the general assembly was held, and we were able to enjoy a delicious dinner at the Tupras facilities.

During the second day the conclusions of the Chief Engineer were presented, and the actions carried out in communication and dissemination were emphasized. To highlight, a new joint event is planned next March 2020, where different SPIRE projects will be invited and results will be presented. After that, two workshops were held in parallel. One to see the necessary steps for implementation, and the second to see how to measure the results of the integration. With this, our coordinator Erik Dahlquist closed the meeting and we returned home with the batteries charged to continue moving forward in the project.

We will tell you more soon! If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us!

FUDIPO project is celebrating today!

The FUDIPO project is celebrating today! We started three years ago, and everything has gone as planned. Do you want to know what our challenges have been and where we are? Do you want to read about different publications we have made in different industrial sectors such as oil refinery or wastewater treatment, among others? Do not miss the newsletter that we have prepared, which summarizes all the activities we have done during this year and gives you access to more information. The industry can be more efficient and competitive thanks to the tools we are developing. Any doubt? Contact us!

Our colleague Carlos Leyva from IDENER presents FUDIPO in Turin

MONSOON SPIRE H2020 project organised its final conference as a joint event in Turin last week. The title of this conference was “Digitized Operations for Sustainable Process Industries. A pathway towards industry 4.0”, and some related SPIRE events were invited to present the project objectives and current status.

Thus, our colleague Carlos Leyva from IDENER was invited to briefly present the status on our demonstrators, and also to present a poster in an elevator-pitch session. This conference was a good point for discussions about the digitalisation in industries and future needed actions.

Please, have a look at the poster presented in the dissemination material section of our webpage.

The next joint event will be prepared by FUDIPO and COCOP and will include a session about energy efficiency. We will post more information soon.

Our colleague Moksadur Rahman presents his licentiate defence next 30th October

Next 30th October is an important day for FUDIPO, as our colleague Moksadur Rahman, who has been intensively working on the project will present his licentiate defence in Energy and environmental engineering based on the work done. The title of this defence is “Towards a learning system for process and energy industry” and is focused on the use of different process models, soft-sensors and optimization techniques to improve the control, diagnostics and decision support for the process and energy industry. Thereby, a generic architecture for optimal control, diagnostics and decision support system, referred to as a learning system, is proposed in his research. You can read the full abstract here: https://mdh.se/mdh-kalender/moksadur-rahman-forsvarar-sin-licentiatuppsats-i-energiteknik-1.125299

We wish him the best for this day!
