The South African Council for Automation and Control will be hosting a workshop showcasing industrial applications of machine learning in process monitoring and control (details below) as well as providing hands-on experience in the application of basic ML techniques. Participants will be guided through examples illustrating fundamental concepts of ML, including the bias-variance trade-off, linear…

The South African Council for Automation and Control will be presenting a one-day interactive course on model based observer design. The aim is to determine which states and parameters of an observer model can be estimated with reasonable accuracy from available measurements. This can be established using observability theory. Once observability is established, development of…

The South African Council for Automation and Control will be presenting a one-day interactive course on model-based observer design. This will be a hybrid event that can be attended in person or online. The aim is to determine which states and parameters of an observer model can be estimated with reasonable accuracy from available measurements….

The South African Council for Automation and Control will be hosting a webinar on the management of “bad actor” alarms. Abnormally high process alarm rates can usually be traced back to a few “Bad Actor” alarms. These “Bad Actor” alarms are the result of instrument faults, poor DCS/SCADA configuration or process design. Excessive alarms to…

The South African Council for Automation and Control will be presenting a one-day interactive workshop on preparing Control System Functional Design Documentation. The guidelines presented will be completely generic and will not necessarily align with any specific automation product or manufacturer. At the conclusion of the workshop the attendees will have a thorough understanding of…

The South African Council for Automation and Control will be hosting an evening talk on the modelling and optimal control of motorcycles in closed-circuit racing. The lecture will start with a brief review of the history of bicycle and motorcycle modelling. This will include such things as design evolutions, modelling developments and methodologies, and the…

The workshop will be hands-on with participants developing their own models and control solutions. Participants must bring their own laptops, but will be provided with the necessary software. On day one local industry and academic experts will introduce popular modern data analytics methods. Participants will then use these methods to infer a key performance measure…
