AB - This paper studies a problem of uncertainties in optimal process control of batch processes. We assume that several batches are processed and that run-to-run optimisation can be performed. We propose an integrated two-time scale that optimises between batches to meet terminal constraints and within batches to improve calculated optimal trajectory for model-mismatch. The results obtained from a batch reactor control indicate that the resulting scheme has better convergence properties than individual schemes dealing either with terminal constraints adaptation or with in-batch neighbouring-extremal (NE) control. © 2011 IFAC.
