The department has always had an active collaboration with the process industry as well as suppliers of process control instrumentation. Most of the research projects are formed together with the process industry, and several of them are performed with active participation by staff from industry. Many of the research results are also transfered to instrument and system suppliers, and implemented and used in process industry.
Most of the process control research is today performed within the Process Industrial Center at Lund University, PICLU. This center and the current research projects are described at the following sites.
- PICLU - Process Industrial Centre at Lund University
- PID Control
- Automatic Tuning
- Utility Disturbance Management
- Decentralized Control Structures
- Fed-batch Control
