Example text

In any case much care should be taken to critically analyze model performance, due to the lack of any redundancy, and periodic model validation should be performed by temporarily inserting measuring devices and eventually proceeding to soft sensor retuning. The problem of periodic soft sensors validation and eventual retuning is actually a common issue for any application of soft sensors. The need for such retuning can be due to a change in a new process working point (not considered during the soft sensor design phase), which can be detected by critically analyzing system inputs.

In particular, as in any data-driven procedure, outliers can have an unwanted effect on model quality. Some of these aspects will now be described in greater detail. Data recorded in plant databases come from a sampling process of analog signals, and plant technologists generally use conservative criteria in fixing the sampling process characteristics. The availability of large memory resources leads them to use a sampling time that is much shorter than that required to respect the Shannon sampling theorem.

26 Soft Sensors for Monitoring and Control of Industrial Processes A model is used in this case to perform simulation of the system dynamics corresponding to input trends that are of interest, with the aim of obtaining both a deeper understanding of system behavior and/or designing suitable control policies. This particular use of process models to perform simulation is called what-if analysis. Though first principle models could be a better choice due to their capability of describing the phenomena ruling the process, the difficulty of obtaining accurate enough models in a reasonable time can lead experts to adopt data-driven inferential models.
