Temperature Control Units are machines that control the temperature of a circulating fluid, typically through the use of cooling water and electrical resistances. In the process of designing a suitable controller, the first step is to make in-plant measurements to identify the model for this machine. In this talk, I present some formulation for identification of such a system, which results into a large-scale nonlinear optimisation problem. I also discuss some optimisation techniques, which are variations of SQP methods, tailored to the structure of this optimisation problem: an objective function is a squared norm of a bilinear application.
