General information:

A significant amount of steel is produced from scrap and DRI/HBI on the Electric Arc Furnace route. Process models can be used to predict the optmimum process control and to determine unknown process paramaters.
Inverse process models can be used to predict model parameters, set-values, minimum cost production parameters or demands to optimum EAF plants from experimental data. MPC ready process model can calculate set values (e.g. DRI feeding rate) from the current process state.
