Process Automation Systems Lab

In October 2020, the Laboratory of Process Automation Systems, headed by Prof. Dr. Sergio Lucia, was established at the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering of the TU Dortmund.

The group starts with three PhD Students and aims to evolve towards a larger group with a research focus on the interface between automatic control, numerical optimization and machine learning. The increasing availability of computing power, large amounts of data, and digital twins should not be ignored. But, what is the best way to leverage all these new possibilities to obtain the largest possible benefit? How can this be done in a systematic fashion? These are some of the questions that our group will study in the coming years.

We apply the methodological advances of the group to different fields, focusing on the advanced operation of chemical, biotechnological or energy processes that can contribute to more efficient and sustainable industries.

In the coming semesters, the group will share the teaching responsibilities in the field of system dynamics, control, optimization and process operations for the Bachelor and Master programs of the BCI department and the Master program in Automation and Robotics with the Process Dynamics and Operations Group.
