Chemical Process Control at the

The "Babes-Bolyai" University of Cluj-Napoca is the oldest institution of higher education and most comprehensive university in Romania. The Group of Chemical Process Modeling, Optimization and Control from the Chemical Engineering Department of the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is presented. Some of our current research projects and obtained results are briefly discussed, in the field of Genetic Algorithm based productivity optimization and nonlinear model predictive control of a PVC batch Reactor, Using Optimal Brain Surgeon for the determination of the topology of the Artificial Neural Network model, used in the predictive control of a fermentation bioreactor, DAQ system for the energy management of an industrial power station and LabVIEW implementation of the remote laboratory paradigm.

Biographical Sketch:
Zoltan NAGY in 1994 graduated with the merit diploma of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cluj, Romania. In 1995 he obtained the M.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering at he same University. Since 1995, he has been assistant professor in the Chemical Engineering Department of Cluj, where he has teached seminars and courses of Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Modeling and Simulation of Chemical Processes, Applied Informatics in Chemistry. His main research activities consist of the application of ANN and GA in chemical engineering, applications of Model Predictive Control, Modeling and Simulation of Chemical Processes, DAQ and remote control systems. He is involved in several industrial and research projects. In 1996 he was visiting professor at the University of the South, Sewanee, TN, USA where he taught an introductory course in LabVIEW, and he developed interfaces in LabVIEW for different equipment in the physics and biology department. In 1997 he was honorary research assistant at the University of Liverpool, CTI Center of Chemistry, Liverpool, UK, where he developed a "Computer Aided DAQ Course with remote real data acquisition through the Internet" in LabVIEW.
