1. INTRODUCTION

Set-up generation is an important aspect in the operation of tandem cold mills. It defines speeds and powers for the

drives, stand reductions, roll forces and interstand tensions for the tandem cold mill control system. Set-up

optimization should lead to improved thickness regularity, surface finish and shape performance of the strip. The

importance of such optimization first appeared in (1) and it has been object of several works (2, 3, 4, 5).

In case of malfunction of the main processing unit responsible to execute the set-up generation system at Cosipa

tandem cold mill, a brazilian steel industry, the normal procedure for the operation is interrupted, being necessary

to use an emergency operation mode. As the process unit has low failure rate, the high cost of a redundancy

implementation is not justified. This is the main reason for the development of an alternative simpler system for setup generation, as presented in this work.

The proposed system is based on a cost function that evaluates the mill quality and productivity. The cost function

is minimized using the Nelder and Mead simplex method (6), and the process variable are evaluated by the cold

rolling model proposed by Bryant (1).

2. PLANT DESCRIPTION

The proposed set-up generation system was developed to be used at Cosipa tandem cold mill, a coil to coil, four

high, four stand mill, in which each stand is driven by two twin independent dc motors. Two hydraulics actuators,

installed at the top of each stand, complete the set of the stands. Table 1 presents the main electrical and

mechanical characteristics of the tandem cold mill.

Cold rolling mill process models have been developed for more than half a century. The most classic cold mill

process model, proposed by Bland and Ford (7), is composed by algebraic and integrals equations for forces and

torques calculation. Bryant (1), through model simplifications, developed a cold mill model composed only by

algebraic equations. This simple model demands low computational effort and shows satisfactory results. The setup generation system here considered uses the Bryant cold mill model.

Prior to rolling, set-up is calculated based on expected steady-state mill behaviour. The threading process, where

the strip must be successively introduced into the mill stands, is accomplished at low speed. After the threading of

the last stand, the mill is then accelerated to the desired operating speed. At the end of the coil, the mill is

decelerated to a low speed for the dethreading process and simultaneously it must already be set-up for the next

coil.

The rolling force P is a nonlinear function of the entry thickness hin, the exit thickness hout, the entry tension in, the

exit tension out, the entry yield stress kin, the exit yield stress kout, the coefficient of friction and the work roll

radius R

P = FP (hin , hout , in , out , k in , kout , ,R )

The entry yield stress kin and the exit yield stress kout are expressed by

k in = Fk (h0 , hin )

G = FG (hin , hout , in , out , k in , kout , , P, R )

4P 1 - R2

R' = R 1 +

E R (hout hin )

where R and ER are the Poisson's Ratio and the Young's modulus for the work roll, respectively.

Through the stand the mass flow must balance, hence if the strip width remains constant

Vin hin = Vout hout

where Vin is the strip entry speed and Vout the exit strip speed. The exit speed depends on the forward slip f and the

work roll speed V

Vout = V (1 + f )

f = Ff (hin , hout , in , out , k in , kout , , R )

W =

GWSV

R GR

where WS is the strip width, R is the motor efficiency and G the gear efficiency.

The cost function used in the proposed set-up generation system considers power drives, rolling forces and

tensions as the most important variables associated to quality and productivity. The cost function is given by

N 1

(J ( ) + J ( ) ) + J ( )

N

J=

i =1

j =1

where J is the total cost, JP and JF are stand i cost functions for power drives and rolling forces respectively, and N

is the number of stands. JT is the cost tension function of zone j between adjacent stands.

For each pattern of thickness and tensions between stands, powers and forces are evaluated using the process

model and the cost function is then calculated. The magnitudes of JP, JF and JT quickly increase when power, force

and tension are out of ranges considered ideal by process engineers. The structure for JP is given by

There are several methods for functions minimization applied to cold mills optimum set-up calculation. In (2)

nonlinear programming is used and in (3) a genetic algorithm is considered. Like in (4), this work uses the simplex

method proposed by Nelder and Mead (6).

Reductions, tensions, rolling forces, powers drives and speeds associated to the minimum of the cost function are

taken as the optimum set-up for the tandem cold rolling mill.

5. RESULTS

The set-up generation system employed during normal operation conditions uses the process model proposed by

Bland and Ford (7). Table 2 presents, for 20 coils, the mean percent error between the values of the process

variables, calculated by the Bland and Ford set-up generation system and the values of the measured process

variables, the later being the base for the computation.

model and corresponding measured process variables.

These results shows that the mill references generated by the Bland e Ford model are very close to the data

measure during the rolling of the coils, mainly for tension and force. However, differences a few percent greater

can be observed for values of stand speed and motor power. For these variables, the measured values during the

rolling of the coils are bigger than the ones calculated by the system.

The proposed set-up generation system was carried out in Matlab using the rolling mill process model proposed by

Bryant (1). To assess the performance of the proposed system, values of the set-up calculated by the main system,

for the same 20 arbitrarily chosen coils referred in the last section, were compared to the corresponding values

calculated by the proposed system. Table 3 presents the average deviation, in percent, between the two systems,

taking the main system as the base system.

While thickness, tension and force deviations may be accepted in the ranges shown in Table 3, that is, strip quality

and process security specifications are maintained for these ranges, some special considerations must be made

with respect to speed and power.

In fact, it was observed that the difference between the torque models for the proposed and the main system is the

reason for higher speed and power values in the proposed system. In practice, this implies that some caution

should be taken if the total power is exceeded, but since there is some power reserve in the case of the main

system calculations, no additional action was necessary for the deviations in Table 3.

6. CONCLUSION

The set-up generation system proposed in this work, despite to be simpler than usual set-up generation systems, is

suitable to be used in emergency operation mode, because it is quick, safe and sufficiently accurate. Further

studies have been made in order to extend the set-up generation system to the threading and tail out phases of the

cold rolling mill process.
