The persistent depletion of fossil fuels has encouraged mankind to look for alternatives fuels that are renewable and environment-friendly. One of the promising and renewable alternatives to fossil fuels is bio-diesel produced by means of the batch transesterification process... Control of the batch transesterification process is difficult due to its complex and non-linear dynamics. It is expected that some of these challenges can be addressed by developing control strategies that directly interact with the process and learning from the experiences. To achieve the same, this study explores the feasibility of reinforcement learning (RL) based control of the batch transesterification process. In particular, the present study exploits the application of twin delayed deep deterministic policy gradient (TD3) based RL for the continuous control of the batch transesterification process. These results showcase that TD3 based controller is able to control batch transesterification process and can be a promising direction towards the goal of artificial intelligence-based control in process industries. read more
