    • PLS post-processing by similarity transformation: a simple alternative to OPLS 

      Ergon, Rolf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2005)
      Several methods for orthogonal signal correction (OSC) based on pre-processing of the modeling data have been developed in recent years, and OPLS (orthogonal projections to latent structures) is a well known algorithm. ...
    • PLS score-loading correspondence and a bi-orthogonal factorization 

      Ergon, Rolf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2002)
      It is established industrial practice to use the correspondence between partial least squares (PLS) scores and loadings or loading weights as a means for process monitoring and control. Deviations from the normal operating ...
    • Population balance modelling for fertilizer granulation process 

      Vesjolaja, Ludmila; Glemmestad, Bjørn; Lie, Bernt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Few granulation plants are operated optimally. It is common to operate granulation plants below their maximum design capacity, and in many cases, periodic instabilities may also occur. From a process control and optimization ...
