How would one typically integrate a neural network into an online automation system?
As an example, we have developed a neural network that predicts a difficult to measure variable within a reactor using multiple sensors. We then use this predicted variable to tell the automation system to, for example, increase/decrease the stirrer speed.
How would someone implement this idea into a commercial system. Would they develop a function block that can simulate the neural network? Would they run a software on the server that reads and writes to the PLC control tags?
