Last modified: 2021-02-27


The paper considers a methodology to improve the control algorithms efficiency for multi-layer dynamic processes with uncontrolled internal layers. The approach is based on the known multi-cascade principle use, where the cascades represents the control algorithms of separate local layers of the process. As an example of the methodology application, a downhole oil production control algorithm is considered.
