Paper Title
Self-Tuning Control For Blast-Furnace Iron-Making Process

An approach for the design of an on-line self-tuner for an unknown highly stochastic nonlinear long time-delay complex system with positive input constraint has been newly proposed in this paper. Then, a novel application of the proposed self-tuning scheme on the control of a blast-furnace iron-making process is also presented in this paper. At last, an adaptive fault-tolerant controlled blast-furnace iron-making process with simulations is given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
