LOOKING FOR MASCONTROL: A MULTIAGENT SYSTEM FOR IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL

Abstract

In this paper, MASCONTROL, a multiagent system (MAS) for system identification and process control, is presented. This MAS implements a self-tuning regulator (STR) scheme. In this work, an Ontology Agent (OA) is included, using DAML+OIL as ontology language. From their experience, the authors consider this architecture highly useful for identification and control processes.
