About this book

This book discusses the intelligent optimization and control of complex metallurgical processes, including intelligent optimization and control of raw-material proportioning processes, coking process, and reheating furnaces; intelligent control of thermal state parameters in sintering processes; and intelligent decoupling control of gas collection and mixing-and-pressurization processes. The intelligent control and optimization methods presented were originally applied to complex metallurgical processes by the authors, and their effectiveness and their advantages have been theoretically proven and demonstrated practically. This book offers an up-to-date overview of this active research area, and provides readers with state-of-the-art methods for the control of complex metallurgical processes.

About the authors

Min Wu received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering from Central South University, Changsha, China, in 1983 and 1986, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in engineering from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, in 1999.
He was a faculty member of the School of Information Science and Engineering at Central South University from 1986 to 2014 and was promoted to professor in 1994. In 2014, he moved to China University of Geosciences, Wuhan, China, where he is a professor in the School of Automation. He was a visiting scholar with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, from 1989 to 1990, and a visiting research scholar with the Department of Control and Systems Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, from 1996 to 1999.
