Since their introduction at ISA Tech 1997, Model-Free
Adaptive (MFA) control products have been widely deployed
in most major process industries, and the customers continue
to realize significant economic benefits. Adaptive, robust,
and easy to use, MFA controllers have been successfully applied
to solve many industry-wide control problems with minimal
investment and risk.
In this section, we list the difficult control problems that
exist in all major process industries. In a tabular format,
we’ve presented a roadmap for your use in addressing
these control problems – what process variable is controlled
by which MFA controller. We’ve attempted to make it
easy for you to find the application that closest fits your
situation. Application stories have also been included, which
highlight the successes of selected customers.
