Description: The webinar covers a high-level introduction to MPC, and its application to batch pharmaceutical processes. In an initial presentation, the challenges associated with MPC of Batch processes are discussed. The webinar is primarily a live case study demonstration using a quasi-real time simulation of a penicillin production process. The dynamics of the process and batch to batch variability are explored. Two approaches to batch control are implemented - controlling end points vs. controlling continuously measured/predicted variables. The process is also subject to feed concentration disturbances. The webinar attendees can compare and contrast the differences in the two approaches and evaluate how both reject the feed disturbance
