Method of Soft-Sensor Modeling for Fermentation Process Based on Geometric Support Vector Regression
【摘要】：The soft-sensor modeling for fermentation process based on standard support vector regression(SVR) needs to solve the quadratic programming problem(QPP) which will often lead to large computational burdens, slow convergence rate, low solving efficiency, and etc. In order to overcome these problems, a method of soft-sensor modeling for fermentation process based on geometric SVR is presented. In the method, the problem of solving the SVR soft-sensor model is converted into the problem of finding the nearest points between two convex hulls (CHs) or reduced convex hulls (RCHs) in geometry. Then a geometric algorithm is adopted to generate soft-sensor models of fermentation process efficiently. Furthermore, a swarm energy conservation particle swarm optimization (SEC-PSO) algorithm is proposed to seek the optimal parameters of the augmented training sample sets, the RCH size, and the kernel function which are involved in geometric SVR modeling. The method is applied to the soft-sensor modeling for a penicillin fermentation process. The experimental results show that, compared with the method based on the standard SVR, the proposed method of soft-sensor modeling based on geometric SVR for fermentation process can generate accurate soft-sensor models and has much less amount of computation, faster convergence rate, and higher efficiency.
