Soft Sensor Modeling Based on Radial Basis Function Neural Network and Fuzzy C-Means
A neural network soft sensor based on fuzzy clustering is presented. The training data set is separated into several clusters with different centers, the number of fuzzy cluster is decided automatically, and the clustering centers are modified using an adaptive fuzzy clustering algorithm in the online stage. The proposed approach has been applied to the slab temperature estimation in a practical walking beam reheating furnace. Simulation results show that the approach is effective.
