The Control Conference Africa (CCA 2017), is a conference hosted by the South African Council for Automation and Control (SACAC). CCA 2017 promotes the exchange of ideas and developments in control engineering in Africa and builds on previous South African events in control engineering. The CCA 2017 conference specifically addresses control engineers from African countries, African control engineers based abroad who wish to reconnect to their roots, and all control engineers who want to connect with Africa. Both academic and industrial control engineering practitioners have the opportunity to present their work and exchange research ideas with colleagues from across the globe.

Workshop on process data analytics

Date: 6 December 2017
Type of event: Workshop
Time: 08:30 – 17:00
Venue: Lilliesleaf, Rivonia
Address: 7 George Avenue Rivonia, Johannesburg
Website: Click here
Costs: Paid Event

Process data analytic methods rely on the notion of sensor fusion whereby data from many sensors and alarm tags are combined with process information, such as physical connectivity of process units, to give a holistic picture of health of an integrated plant. The discovery and learning from process data refers to a set of tools and techniques for modeling and understanding of complex data sets. Such data sets generally include normal numerical (or non-categorical) data but should also take into account categorical (or non-numerical or qualitative) data from Alarm and Event (A&E) logs combined with process connectivity or topology information. The latter refers to the capture of material flow streams in process units as well information flow-paths in the process due to control loops. The emphasis in this workshop will be on tools and techniques that help in the process of understanding data and discovering information that will lead to predictive monitoring and diagnosis of process faults. The international speakers include Sirish L. Shah, who has co-authored three books, the first titled “Performance Assessment of Control Loops: Theory and Applications”, a second book titled book titled “Diagnosis of Process Nonlinearities and Valve Stiction: Data Driven Approaches” and a more recent brief monograph titled, “Capturing Connectivity and Causality in Complex Industrial Processes” and Babatunde A. Ogunnaike is the author or co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, and four books including a widely used textbook, “Process Dynamics, Modeling and Control” (1994), and “Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers” (2009). Local speakers include Lidia Auret (Stellenbosch University, Department of Process Engineering) and Margret Bauer (honorary professor at the University of the Witwatersrand).
