ABSTRACT
The article describes the implementation of an artificial neural network for online, real-time inferential property estimation at Perm, Russia's LUKOIL refinery. The neural networks were executed as function blocks within the refinery's automation system controllers. The networks implement advanced regulatory control and model predictive control technology. Neural models were empirical and have to be trained with process data in sufficient quantities to be able to accurately model the process. Nearly 100 lab samples for each variable were required to train the neural networks.
