Virtual Analyzers: Identification Approach

  • N. N. Bakhtadze


A definition of virtual analyzers as software algorithmic systems generating models in real time on the basis of current and retrospective information about the industrial processes was given. Methods of development of the virtual analyzers were presented, as well as examples of their industrial applications.
