Abstract:The most important parameters which control the electrolytic process are the concentrations of zinc and sulfuric acid in the electrolyte. An expert control strategy for determining and tracking the optimal concentrations was proposed, which uses neural networks, rule models and a single-loop control scheme. First, the process was described and the
strategy that features an expert controller and three single-loop controllers was explained. Next, neural networks and rule models were constructed based on statistical data and empirical knowledge on the process. Then, the expert controller for determining the optimal concentrations was designed through a combination of the neural networks and rule models. The three single-loop controllers used the PI algorithm to track the optimal concentrations. Finally, the implementation of the proposed strategy were presented. The run results show that the strategy provides not only high-purity metallic zinc, but also significant economic benefits.
