Short Abstract: This project aims to research and develop an intelligent system for horizontal mills in order to increase the efficiency of the grinding process and minimize the downtime due to failures. Optimization will be achieved by real-time estimation of the critical operating parameters of the process, which cannot be measured directly due to the absence of sensors for that. In addition to the estimation of critical parameters, it is also the objective of this project to develop tools to provide support to the maintenance and anomalies detection in sensors.

Short Abstract: This project aims to develop an integrated management system, supported by computer intelligence systems, to support the microalgae production process. This system, called IngestAlgae, will be composed by several modules, present in the different layers of industrial automation: factory floor, control, supervision and management. In summary, this project will integrate the process data, for later use in other modules, in view of energy management, process control and optimization, fault detection, preventive maintenance application, and bottleneck detection in the process.
