Welcome to Kwon’s Research Group!
A highly advanced computational system gave rise to an opportunity to improve the process safety and achievable profit by implementing a delicate modeling and advanced controller (e.g. Model Predictive Control (MPC), model-based control system). However, there still remains infinite potential to enhance the process profitability and efficiency by adapting several novel methods, such as hybridization of multiscale processes.
Our group explores the development of an integrated framework for computational modeling, numerical simulation, model reduction and controller design of multiscale processes which are characterized by distributed parameter systems. Specifically, our group focuses on hydraulic fracturing, cell signal pathway, protein-receptor binding mechanisms, and aerosol combustion systems.
