This article discusses the challenges of non-intrusive state measurement for the purposes of online monitoring and control of Ultraviolet (UV) curing processes. It then proposes a two-step observer design scheme involving the estimation of distributed temperature from boundary sensing cascaded with nonlinear cure state observers. For the temperature observer, backstepping techniques are applied to derive the observer partial differential equations along with the gain kernels. For subsequent cure state estimation, a nonlinear observer is derived along with analysis of its convergence characteristics. While illustrative simulation results are included for a composite laminate curing application, it is apparent that the approach can also be adopted for other UV processing applications in advanced manufacturing.
