The Extra Mile On Industrial Performance
Our Technology addresses the so called “Control Problem” with a disruptive approach. Incumbent solutions based on fixed parameters are surpassed by the unique Adaptive Predictive Control developed by ADEX which brings new levels of flexibility, performance and accuracy on the control of industrial facilities never ever known before.
This technology is the result of:
The Technology has been granted with different patents in USA, EU and India among other regions. Different papers, articles and books have been written explaining the technical differences of our technology.
All those algorithms and expertise have been packed in the form of a Self-Tuning Artificial Intelligence platform.
Instead of trying to develop models that identify the whole process dynamics, by means of self-tuning Artificial Intelligence, ADEX determines at every control instant the time-varying short-term process dynamics (instant dynamics vs entire dynamics), which enables accurate prediction, and therefore accurate control, of the critical process variables at the next control instant. This way, our time-varying adaptive-predictive model whose parameters are automatically adjusted by an adaptation mechanism at every control instant, the prediction error of these critical variables is minimized and the control system remains stable under changing conditions, guiding critical variables through desired trajectories.
Today, ADEX Technology has been installed on +70 plants and it is commercialized worldwide through ADEX and its partners.
This fourth book published by Springer provides the theory and the industrial practice for the application of ADEX systems and is used for the training courses in English.
This third book was released by the UNED, and is the course book used for the Adaptive Predictive Expert Control (ADEX) methodology training courses in Spanish. Currently available in Spanish.
This second book was released in 1996 by Prentice-Hall, and covered the theory and practical applications of the Adaptive Predictive Control methodology.
This first book was originally released in 1978 by the Juan March Foundation, and covered the theory and practical applications of the Adaptive Predictive Control methodology. Currently available in Spanish.
This special issue, published in October 2012, presents the “state of the art” in optimized adaptive control, includes a survey and five additional papers reporting applications currently optimizing the performance of processes in different industrial areas.
This special issue, published in June 1997, and titled “Adaptive Predictive Control: Limits of Stability and Applications”, reviewed Adaptive Predictive Control and its industrial applications, including a power plant application.
